I am about to do a reformat and reinstall of my operating system.
The version of Internet Explorer on the OS disc is 5.0x.
I recently ordered IE 6 SP1 on disc from MS and have just received it.
After I have finished installing the OS, can I immediately upgrade the browser to the new version I now have on disc or should I run Windows Update and get all the patches for the old version of IE and then upgrade?
I ask because I am on dial-up and any time saved would be greatly appreciated. -- The views expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the poster.
