    There are many users who are facing problem with internet explorer, to solve this problem you need to manually download internet explorer from internet and then you have to exe file of internet explorer in to the /.cache/winetricks/ie/ folder. In the home folder Cache folder is hidden and that is why you have to use Ctrl and H key to view it. Now after doing that you have to open terminal and then enter following command

    winetricks ie6
