    IE Won't Update (XP SP-2)

    If I have a machine with XP Pro SP-2 on it, and it is running IE6, and will not install IE7, nor SP-3 -- after a "repair install", does this mean I need to reformat and start over with a clean install?

    How does this manifest itself? Error messages or what is the result; what do you see?

    > "... after a "repair install" ..."

    How did you do that?

    Argus:

    Each time I've tried to update (using Microsoft Update and direct files downloads and installs) It just runs through and then at the end shows me that the install failed. And this is four times now.

    I'm not totally sure of the exact wording, but if I boot from the XP CD, and then say I want to install XP, then it says there's already an XP install there, so do I want to repair it, and I say "yes" and it runs through the install process, updating ( or replacing / correcting damaged files) without actually removing the old install.

    It's worked like a charm in the past,...but not this time.
