(see attachment) I have gone through all the information; KB2399238, KB 2454826, KB2409098. I have downloaded the program from different sites. I have tried to install normally and as administrator. I have contacted the local MS Office, who haven't come across this problem. I have rebooted several times. I have not uninstalled I.E.8.
Does anyone have any suggestion??
You shouldn't have any previous release of internet explorer in your PC, for example Internet Explorer 9.0 RC/Internet Explorer 9.0 Beta or ...
so if you have any of this versions you should uninstall it.
For doing that go to -> Start -> Control Panel -> Program and Features -> Installed Updates -> Right Click on Internet Explorer 9 -> choose Uninstall.
Now do a clean and fresh install of IE9.
Hope it helped.
