So one of the applications I frequently use stopped working and said it's because it no longer supports the version of Internet Explorer that I have(IE 7). So I go to update to IE 9 and when I do IE says that IE 9 is not compatible with my OS (Vista Home Basic 32 bit). And so I'm at an in-pass. Every time I try to look for what I need to update to IE 9 It just takes my back to the screen where you download IE 9. What exactly do I have to do?

press windows key and the letter R

in the run menu that pops up type "winver" without the quotations what does it say?

 

or

 

open windows updates and see if service pack 2 is available

 

IE 9 is  compatible with Vista Home Basic 32 bit service pack 2 so if your system does not have the service pack installed you cannot install ie9

Version 6.1 (Build 6001: Service Pack 1)

 

Okay. I'm looking at a download for service pack 2 and it says it's more than 500MBs. My network is too sporadic. There's no way my internet will be up continuously long enough to download 500MBs.

windows update should keep track of what it has downloaded so it can continue where it leaves off if youlose connectivity.

 

or

 

if you are planing on downloading the file and installing it manually you can use a download manager such as jdownloader so you don't lose the file if you lose the conection.
