Note: Microsoft has stopped supporting Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2. To download IE5.5 SP2 you’ll need to find a different link (with Google for example). I found one for you but I don’t know how long it will last because it is an outside link that is NOT controlled by me. Try it and if you find that it stopped working please let me know.

MS05-052 : Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (896688)

This update replaces the update that is included with Microsoft Security Bulletin MS05-038. That update is also a cumulative update.

This update does include Hotfixes that have been released since the release of MS04-004 or MS04-025, but they will only be installed on systems that need them. Customers who have received Hotfixes from Microsoft or from their support providers since the release of MS04-004 or MS04-025 should review the “I have received a Hotfix from Microsoft or my support provider since the release of MS04-004. Is that Hotfix included in this security update?” question in the FAQ section of this bulletin to determine how you can make sure that the necessary Hotfixes are installed. Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 896688 also documents this in more detail.
