[Crossposted to IE General newsgroup]
One assumes you're running WinXP SP2 or SP3 and you're attempting to install
(not update) IE7.
Required reading IMHO before installing IE7:
Sandi's Installation Tips <= Steps #1-8, #10 & #11; take note of #12, then
(ignore any references to Vista)
And I strongly recommend using
installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.
Alternately, use this Direct Download link:
Tip: Save the installer to your desktop, do not Run it.
Make *certain* that you check in at Windows Update immediately after
installing IE7 and install any critical updates offered. If Optional
Updates category offers Root Certificates update, I recommend installing it
to take full advantage of IE7's additional security.
