Cannot install a web browser

  Zebrapec 14:42 09 Aug 2010

Hi, I have just done a destructive wipe of a hard drive, due to problems too numerous to go into. The re-install has gone well and win. vista is back on up and running, with 88 of 90 win up-dates installing. What is missing, though is a web browser, so when I got a choice to choose from I tried installing: Google chrome, then Firefox, and lastly explorer 8, all failed to installed, so can someone help please, as I cannot install a anti-virus programm also.
Anyone help please?
