Hi, I am pulling my hair out.

I have IE6 With windows xp sp2.

When I try to install IE7 it downloads from the web, then it says--validate and starts to download, after 5 mins or so up comes the error message.

At couple of weeks ago the error said "could not perform this operation because the default client is not properly installed". "Now it says" After checking validation-- "get the latest updates"-- click next,
Starts installing "IE7". Error comes up ...."Internet explorer installation did not complete, you must restart your computer to remove any changes setup has made". After restarting click "IE7" trouble shooting, "shortcut on your desktop" for more infomation.

I have checked programs "E-mail", is "outlook express"--as is---News group---"Outlook express". The only thing I havn't done is---on "the programs page", "the same page as I have just mentioned, There is a "check box" that says "look for default". do I need to check that box?

Apart from that I have not got a clue why this is not working. I have turned off virus checker before i tried to install aswell, NO JOY. :thumbsup: Robert.

possible a add-on could be the culprit
you could check your add-ons disable any that maybe unfamiliar to you
you can re-enable this again

tools/internet options/programs/manage add-ons

this could be a long process

Have you ever made any registry changes to your system, or messed around with IE settings before?

To repair IE6 (presuming that this is the only problem), uninstall and then reinstall Service Pack 2.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

another way to repair IE6 is to go to add/remove programs and on the left click on set add/remove windows components.....click on internet explorer follow the prompts .....but you will need your xp cd to complete the repairs
