IE 7 arrived via automatic updates on Friday morning. I clicked OK to install it over my IE7 Beta and it started to remove the previous version. When I got home 9 hours later it was still on the same thing so I cancelled the update and broke IE. Did a system restore this morning and had another attempt with the same result and another system restore.
I intend to phone Microsoft Support on Monday morning, but has anyone else had installation problems or any ideas on why this is happening?
Well, its taken a day and a half but I finally got there.
Redownloaded IE7 with FireFox and saved to disk. An attempt to install incurred the same problem so rebooted into safe mode and everything went fine that way.
