If you "haven't noticed another update which failed" to install, why did say
"there is a list of updates the could not be installed" in your first post?
Ideally, AntiVir would have been disabled prior to installing SP3. See...
WinXP SP3 - Read all prerequisites for a successful installation
If you go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
, select CUSTOM & scan, are
any critical security updates offered? If so, can you install them
successfully? (Don't attempt to install IE7 again via Windows Update just
yet, please.) If not, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144
Moving on, I consider the following to be required reading before attempting
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.
