   (Critical Updates are bug fixes that fix serious problems such as specific security hacker attacks)
   (Recommended Updates are optional - not really necessary to download & install but include system improvements)
   NOTE: It is not necessary to download & install all of the updates listed on my page.  You are not required
              to install them unless your system has suffered serious problems.  Make sure you download the
              patches for the correct operating system.

  I've made this page simply for informational purposes and to make downloading updates faster & easier.  See this
  Microsoft Support Knowledge Base Article to determine what version of Internet Explorer you are using > KB 164539
  To determine what version of Windows Media Player you are using click on the link to this MS KB article > KB 190990

  Key = IE - Internet Explorer, WMP - Windows Media Player, OE - Outlook Express, JScript - Java Script
           WSH - Windows Script Host, VBScript - Visual Basic Script, WMF - Windows Media Format
  [a little star * indicates a new system update; the <> symbol means to install a patch with caution because it may have a
   possible side effect; I am not responsible if the updates you download here do more harm than good]

I will feature Internet Explorer & Windows Media Player patches for Windows XP, Vista, Server 2003/2008 & higher but only for
the 32-bit editions and not for the 64-bit editions of those Windows OSes.

Internet Explorer 5.x "Verisign" Security Update, April 2, 2001 [revised 4-9-2001; fixed in IE6 & higher] (MS01-017) (293818)

Notes: Download & install these security updates mentioned above in ascending order [from bottom to top].  The latest Cumulative
          Security updates for Internet Explorer also fix problems found in the previous IE updates.  Currently, I only feature the JScript
          MS09-045 security updates for WSH/MSE/JScript versions 5.6 and 5.7.  The Jscript 5.8 MS09-045 security updates are
          not listed here because they are replaced by the newly released Jscript 5.8 MS11-031 updates listed above on this page.
          ~ Sidenote: Please see Axcel216's Max Speeed Internet Explorer Updates page for any potential problems & workarounds
          when installing the latest IE updates.  Since these new IE updates change the behavior of handling user info in HTTP and
          HTTPS links, please read MS article 834489 for solutions on how to deal with this new behavior.  The Internet Explorer
          cumulative security updates starting from KB824145 and subsequent cumulative updates break the functions of the
          Windows 98 Troubleshooter Help file.  When clicking on the Next button of any Win98 troubleshooter AND any one or
          more cumulative IE updates are installed, the Win98 Troubleshooter Help file will display a blank page instead of showing
          any solutions to the troubleshooter.  See my 98tshoot.html file on how to get the Windows 98 Troubleshooters (and the
          Windows 98 Help files) to work correctly again with any Cumulative IE Update installed.  Note that these Cumulative IE
          Patches do NOT break the Troubleshooters in Windows 2000, ME, XP, Server 2003 and higher.
          ~ Sidenote 2: The KB2964358 security updates for IE require the KB2936068, KB2919355 or KB2929437 updates
          installed first.

Internet Explorer Recommended Updates: (less critical updates)
 

Notes:  If you have downloaded an earlier version of the Root Certificates Update before middle of March 2014, download it again
           as the Root Certificates Update is revised almost once every year.  You must re-install the Root Certificates Update
           if you remove, re-install or install a new version of Internet Explorer only on Win9x, ME, 2000 or NT4 (you may not have
           to do this if using WinXP, 2003 or higher).  Root Certificates Update revised in the year 2013 require Windows XP or
           greater to install.  However, Root Certificates Update revised in 2014 and later will require minimum of Windows Vista.



Internet Explorer Web Browser Downloads, Add-ons & Non-Critical Updates:
 

Notes: The Internet Explorer 5.01 browser is only updated & supported by Windows 2000 and latest Win2k Service Packs.  The
latest SP for Win2000 is SP4 which has IE 5.01 SP4.  Many (but not all) of the IE 5.x Web Accessories & Power Tweaks
Accessories work fine under IE 6.x & possibly IE 7/IE 8 for WinXP/2003.  MS Netmeeting 3.02 is available for WinVista as a
hotfix.  Version of MS NetMeeting in WinXP is 4.40.3400 while Win2003 Server editions have NetMeeting version 4.40.4000
and can only be updated by Service Packs for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.  I no longer feature any MS Java VM
downloads here as it is very old and deprecated; install the latest Java SE Runtime Environment software instead.
Note that Windows 7 and greater do not include NetMeeting nor will it be supported.
Note about IE9: Internet Explorer 9 requires either Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7 installed and IE9 cannot be installed
nor used under Windows XP, Server 2003 and older versions of Windows.  Also, IE9 requires certain updates for Vista and/or
Seven to be installed first before IE9 can be installed successfully as noted in MS KB article 2399238.
Note about IE10 & IE11: As with IE9, Internet Explorer 10 and/or 11 require certain Win7 SP1 updates to be installed first before
either one can be installed successfully.  See MS KB article 2818833 on what Win7 SP1 updates to install before installing IE10.
And see MS KB article 2847882 on what Win7 SP1 updates to install before installing IE11 - Win7 SP1 users must also install
the KB2882822 & KB2888049 updates in addition to the existing Win7 prerequisite updates before installing IE11 as those two
updates are required for IE11 to install & work correctly under Win7 SP1.

Note: The Windows Media Player KB936782 security updates replace the KB917734 security updates for all supported
versions of Windows Media Player.
^ - The WMP 6.4 KB925398 security update was revised on July 10, 2007 so that it can install under Win2003 SP2.



Windows Media Player Downloads & Add-ons:
 

Notes: The Windows Media 10 Codecs Download Package is included in Windows Media Player 10; version 8.0 of this addon
is included in Media Player 7.1 for Win98/2000/ME & in Media Player 8.0 for WinXP.  Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1
includes Windows Media Player 6.4 version 6.4.07.1121 instead of version 6.4.07.1112 if using Win98, ME or NT4;  IE 6 SP1
installs WMP version 6.4.09.1121 if using Win2000.  To install WMP 6.4 build 1121 under Win95, 98 or NT4 with the IE 5.01 or
IE 5.5 setup tool see My Computer Tips for Windows page - pt2.  If you are installing IE 6 SP1 under Win98 or NT4 (not under
Win95), use the IE 6 SP1 setup program to install WMP 6.4.  Windows Server 2003 RTM includes Windows Media Player 9.0
version 9.00.00.2991. Be sure to install IE5 & DirectX 7 or better first before installing WMP 7.1 under Win95 and NT4 users
must install SP6 first along with IE5 & DX6 Media before installing WMP 7.1 under NT4.  Also avoid installing the Music CD
Burning addon from WMP 7.1 if using NT4 as it does not work well under WinNT4 and works properly under Win95.  The WMP
KB832353 updates replace the WMP KB828026 critical updates.  To uninstall WMP9 under WinME or WinXP orig./SP1
without using System Restore, see my page on how to remove WMP9 completely.  Windows 7 & Windows 8.x include
Windows Media Player 12 and WMP12 is not available for other versions of Windows.
<> Caution: Do NOT install the WMP9URP pack under Win98 if unofficial 98MP10 pack is installed as it may cause problems.
Also, be careful when trying out the unofficial WMP10 pack for Win2000; once you install it, you can not remove it with the normal
WMP 10 uninstaller, so get the unofficial WMP10 remover here.
