Hello sumersinghwal and welcome to Seven Forums.

I would look for damaged or corrupt system files. Run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If any problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If there are no integrity violations I would make sure your computer meets the minimum requirements for IE9:

Internet Explorer 9 system requirements - Microsoft Windows

Next, make sure you follow the prerequisites for installing IE9:

And finally, if you're still having issues upgrading to IE9, here are some troubleshooting steps:
