It should be emphasized that, as noted above, IE6 has a notorious bug that causes Explorer to hang even during ordinary local file operations that have nothing to do with the Internet. There are fixes, of course.

As for updates, I only install :
IE6 or IE 5.5 SP2
Windows Installer 2.0
.NET Framework 2.0, which requires both of the above (the ANSI version, of course)
When the Windows Update website was up, I would install ALL of them. Sadly, now they are only available in English online. And just like Unnoficial Service Packs, they break the French localization of my Windows 98SE install...
If you have a windowsupdate.log file from a PC that downloaded them when it was still online you can still download them from Microsoft. That's how I got Dutch updates after v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com shut down. Just copy paste the URLS in IE and you can download the updates. I just tried one download and it still works.
Also why not install the IDE shutdown fix? If you don't you get the scandisk every time you reboot. It's the first update I install.
