Unofficial Internet Explorer 6 SP1 Updater

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Another unofficial project by me. What is does is that it updates IE6 SP1 with the latest available files. So far, the count is 46 files updated, but I may have missed some.

I have attached a list of the files updated, with their latest known versions. If anyone else has a file name to add, please let me know.

If you have a suggestion, let me know. It is currently still in development. This topic was just made to let you know about the project.

Hi the_guy,

do you have any idea why Microsoft was always creating different files for IE on Win98/98SE/Me and different for IE on Windows 2000?

Are you sure that it is safe to use Windows 2000 files on Windows 98?

If yes, then why MS was building two different branches?

The only thing I can think of is that Windows 2000 uses update.exe. The files should be the exact same. However, I'm leary about using files from XP SP1 updates.

If anyone has an update that I didn't list in my .txt file, please post it.

IE6 causes problems when large amounts of files are copied, moved, or deleted.

BROWSEUI.DLL and BROWSELC.DLL have to be replaced with earlier versions from 5.5 to stop this from happening.

I don't have IE6 and this problem also manifests with IE5.5 SP2 and copying, moving/deleting/large amount of small files.

@LLXX: I don't think I'll be using those versions of files, but I will definately move the browseui.dll copying to a .bat file to not have a 6.0 SP1 file with a 5.5 SP2 file. I honestly never thought of that.

Actually, if you unrar the "Upgrade Pack 98" just recently updated you'll see in the "w" folder a "bugfixen.exe" file.

This extracts the older IE5.5 versions of the two problem files to the Windows folder, leaving the IE6 versions in the System folder alone. The batch file then makes a registry entry pointing the system to use the files in the Windows folder.

copy browselc.dll %windir%

copy browseui.dll %windir%

CD %windir%\System

regsvr32 /u /s %windir%\System\browseui.dll

regsvr32 /u /s %windir%\System\browselc.dll

regsvr32 /i /s %windir%\browseui.dll

regsvr32 /i /s %windir%\browselc.dll

This way Internet Explorer uses the latest files but Windows Explorer uses the older files. I think. (Could be wrong.) In any case the older files work fine when browsing or working in Windows Explorer.

No more freezes or slowdowns with folder activity.

Edit - Not that I was thrilled with that Pack. Way too many assumptions as to how a user wants his system to be tweaked. I much prefer Gape's Pack, although I learned to install OfficeXP AFTER the Service Pack. The Pack appears to install some older MDAC files that destroy Windows ability to start the registry if a newer (OfficeXP) version of the files is replaced by the Pack's versions.

I didn't think Gape included MDAC but that's what happened to me. Wait until after the Service Pack for OfficeXP and everything's fine.

you can "work around" this problem by deleting large amount of files from File Manager [winfile.exe]. File Manager deletes files faster than Windows Explorer and will not freeze your computer with IE6 installed.

more accurately, I would NOT replace BROWSEUI.DLL with the IE 5.5 version. Better use version 5.50.4948.700 of the BROWSEUI.DLL file from IE 5.5 SP2 KB905915 patch to get the security benefits of the latest BROWSEUI.DLL file from IE 5.5 SP2 and use version 5.50.4807.2300 of BROWSELC.DLL file from IE 5.5 SP2.

The way I'm going to do it is as follows: Have browseui.dll get copied to system32. I'm not going to touch the 5.5 SP2 patch. However, if you have browseui.dll from IE5.5SP2 in system32, there WILL be problems. I can avoid that, by using a batch file. Other than that, I have no idea.

Can anyone post hotfixes for IE6 SP1 that are missing from my list.

Also, I plan to post in the next few days a list of files in IE6 SP1 with files versioned 5.50.4807.2300.

Since IE918899.EXE updates BROWSEUI.DLL to Version 6.0.2800.1692

and 98SE2XP updates BROWSELC.DLL to Version 6.0.2900.2180

are IE5.5 SP2 files necessary?

The freezing of the My Documents folder, explorer slowdown, etc all occur on any versions from the one installed by IE6SP1 on up.

So, yeah, the older versions of those 2 files help. But I don't know how you want to handle this, as the newer files are possibly more secure.

You might want to include a seperate patch that does something like the Upgrade Pack does as I described a few post's ago. That way people could make their own decision as to whether they want the bug fix or keep the possibly added security and handle the slowdown, freezing bugs with work-around's like using file manager, a dos window, or whatever.

I'd rather have a working Windows Explorer as I deal with the My Documents folder and delete files a lot.

Actually, the first time I tried the older files was with that Upgrade Pack and was happy I could extract just that exe and use that as my bugfix without installing his pack. I had been frustrated by the bugs for a long time. It's nice to know when I open My Documents I won't risk having to wait 10 minutes for my computer to start keeping time and unfreeze again!

That fix is nice as the newer versions are still in the system folder but the registry points to the older one's in the Windows folder. The newer files are still listed in the file versions for Internet Explorer in System Information so I think Internet Explorer actually uses those, but Windows Explorer uses the older one's.

I seem to recall a batch file posted somewhere here that did this manually but I never tried it. That's probably what this exe file does.

That's the link to his download site if you want to extract it and see what he has in his bugfixen.exe.

Show me an exploit that will pwn a machine with the 5.5 files, but not the 6.x. No proof, no upgrade. Edited by LLXX

Hi the_guy,

Regarding your list of files here, the only one of those that I can better is DHTMLED.OCX. I use build 6.01.9232 from Windows 2k SP4 Update Rollup 1 (v2) (direct download link).
