    I have Win 98SE on a Dell Dimension XPS R400, MSIE 6, etc and recently I
    upgraded from Office 97 to Office 2002 and now when I try to do the Windows
    Updates the screen sees I need administrators access to proceed to download
    the updates.

    What is this? I have never seen it before. Can anyone tell me how to work
    around it?

    TIA.

  2. Having previously reinstalled IE6 twice to no avail, I
    finally fixed this problem on my pc today by forcing a
    reinstall of 2 IE6 components - Dynamic HTML Browsing &
    Browsing Enhancements
