After my latest Automatic Update, IE6 no longer works at all. It will not
read webpages. It tells me it can't find the server. How do I fix this?

This is why you should not have your Updates automatically install.
The quick fix is to get rid of all the Updates via the System Restore
service.
This will revert your programs and settings to the date selected.
Type System Restore Wizard into Help and Support, and follow the
instructions.
OR:
You can, instead, uninstall the Updates a few at a time, rebooting each
time, until you find the group that caused your IE problem.

While not agreeing with you in any of the above, why use System Restore
instead of uninstalling them, one by one, using Add/Remove Programs?
