    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
    STOP!
    http://www.ie-vista.com/known_issues.html#pre-install
    (ignore any references to Vista)

    And I strongly recommend using
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/dow.../getitnow.mspx as the
    installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.

    Alternately, use this Direct Download link:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...0-081805b2f90b

    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.

    This problem has a simple solution though the troubleshooting gives a much
    more complicated list of solutions. It appears that the problem has to do
    with one specific registry key, which has read only permissions.
    To correct this problem a) open regedit and find key
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\{34A715A0-6587-11D0-924A-0020AFC7AC4D} and click
    your right mouse button, select set permissions and choose the administrator
    account (owner). The root of your problem is most likely that this key has
    read only ticked but the full rights need to be ticked also. Reboot.
    b) The safest way to install IE7 is to do the installation with the
    standalone installer. Such can be obtained from http://download.microsoft.com
    where IE7 should be listed in the top downloads. Install it - at this point
    it should install properly though it might notify you that the latest updates
    were not installed. Reboot
    c)Start your IE7 and choose windows update - and install those remaining
    updates for your browser.
