    My calendar shows week 17 when its week 16. The problem is from 2009 when
    there was not the week 53.

    How do I download a new vertion of the calendar in explorer 8 ????

    No version of IE has ever included a calendar.

    Not an issue with IE since it has no calendar function. Um, it's a web
    browser if you didn't know.

    That's not IE8; it must be an addon or something you added to
    it from a 3rd party; talk to them.

    There is no calendar in Internet Explorer. You're getting the calendar from
    Google or from Yahoo!, or someplace like that. Whatever the problems it,
    it's with those sites not with IE.

    Today, 04/19, is in Week 17. Some calendars might have put Jan 1 and 2 in
    the last week of December because Jan 1 & 2 fell on Fri. and Sat., which
    would make this Week 16. Outlook shows this as Week 17.

    There is an ISO standard for week numbering. ISO 8601.
    According to that standard, today 04/19 is in week 16.

    There may be local conventions, including maybe an American standard,
    that says that this is week 17. Maybe Outlook's behaviour changes depending
    on the selected locale.
    (there also are local conventions about what is the first day of the week)

    This problem (difference) does not occur in every year.
    So that is why the OP notices it.

    Whatever the standard, the problem he's noticing does not come from Internet
    Explorer 8, as he stated in his post.

    This is not what you were claiming.
    You claimed that 04/19 is in week 17, which it (according to international
    standard) isn't.
    This shows that even without any software in the loop, there is confusion.

    I'm not claiming anything other than Outlook 2003 shows the week containing
    April 19 as Week 17. The OP made the claim, and I observed that Outlook has
    the same behavior.

    I don't really care what week it is, the only point I'm interested in is
    that Internet Explorer 8 is not the source of the numbering errort, if there
    is one. IE8 does not have a calendar.

    I normally don't use Outlook so I was a bit amazed that it would do this.
    I tried it in the Dutch language version of Outlook 2003 and it shows
    week 16 (as is correct according to ISO 8601).

    It turns out that you can set the weeknumber algorithm in Outlook under
    Extra->Options->Calendar-options, where it defaults (here) to "first
    week of the year is the first week with 4 days" (which is a different
    way of expressing what ISO 8601 says). When you set "first week begins
    on jan 1st" you get the week number 17.

    First 4-day Week is the answer that the OP is looking for.
