Internet explorer 7

  ooermrs 16:16 19 Mar 2007

Got my computer formatted and got it back yesterday. Before this i was running IE7, the computers come back running IE6. When i try and install IE7 again i get a message at the end of installing saying "internet explorer installation did not complete. You must restart your computer to remove any changes made" I've tried again with AVG and ZONE ALARM switched off but still the same.
Anyone got any ideas why it'll not install ?
Also my homepage is set at MSN and nothing i try will change it, any ideas on this one also ?

Have you downloaded all the updates from MS? IE7 will only installon an XP SP2 machine or Vista.

Do you have sp2 installed ? and all MS updates.

Thanks, its an XP SP2 machine i've got. I double checked. I checked the updates too, a couple were installed the first time i tried to install it.

So you have IE7 installed ?

No, it'll install the other updates but refuses to install IE7.

Who formatted and reinstalled your operating system? Check that it is still seen as a valid version of XP. Click the "Validate Windows" button at this link. click here
