I have successfully downloaded IE6 and stored it in a folder. However I can't make it install. When I click on the .exe file I always get a Windows Update error message that says : "A previous installation has pending work requiring a reboot. You need to restart your computer to complete that installation before running Internet Explorer Setup. Setup will now close."

I've rebooted a dozen times and still get the same message.
I'm not savvy enough to figure out what the "previous installation . . . . requiring a reboot" is.
Help. Please.
