I had this problem recently on a new laptop.

You could try the advice from click here or a reinstall of IE6 as recommended click here using the instructions from click here.

These have worked for some people

In the event I found that the system could not write to the Downloaded Programme folder.
The problem was eventually sorted by a repair of XP as the instructions from click here

Apart from the time (about 45 minutes)the repair is straightforward.

With XP CD in drive type sfc /scannow in the run box press enter and sit back while XP relaces missing / corrupt system files and IE files.
