    I would search my local library for old computer-magazines with CDs.
     
  6. I have an official internet explorer 4 cd. email me for details
     
  7. no it didnt do the full update though only the ie4 off sp4 disk did, at least for NT4...........

    it is a must to have a sp4 if loading NT4

    if you want NT4 to look/feel like 98 and most stable

    to load full best NT4 combo:

    load NT4
    then load IE4 with desktop enhancements off sp4 disk (biggest change is it changes the kernel to version 5 besides the enhancements, most don't know that)
    then apply sp6a
    then update IE to 5.5 or 6.......

    if just update IE without IE4+enhancements off sp4 disk the kernel never gets updated and never get quick start bar and other fun stuff that comes with enhancements

    I have an iso of the disk if you can't find elsewhere although should be all over, if you ever get one keep it
    >> (this is not a warz thing as MS gave it away for the asking)<<

    that would be the only reason i could think of for wanting a copy, if its for 95.... then why bother

    I did an ftp-search and found ftp://ftp.canuck.com/pub/support/win95/explorer
    I did download it. If the link does not work for you I could burn it to CD and send it to you. (ie4.exe 17.444kb - should be the one you are looking for)
