Overwriting a web browser

By bfeltus ·
One of our tech support personnel said that he installed ie5.5 128 bit encryption on a win98 pc. He cloned that pc to 25 other PCs. That was last year. The web browsers on the 25 PCs are now showing ie5.0 with 56bit encryption. He's saying ie5.5 wasoverwritten or uninstall by another program and ie5.0 was installed. Is this possible? I think he used ghost to clone. I don't think so. Please note, our users are not in the habit of installing or uninstalling programs.

Overwriting a web browser

by richtremblay In reply to Overwriting a web browser

Well I don't think the ie5setup will overwrite a new version of IE, in fact I am 95% sure about this. You could however remove IE 5.5 and return to the last version (5.0) if you remove it from Add/Remove Programs. Perhaps someone removed it and reverted to the old version prior to the ghost images being made? But this seems unlikely. Other than that I would have to say that he did not indeed install IE 5.5.

Can you restore the original image on a test machine and check the version of IE. That would show what version the fresh image contains. Hope this helps!
