Windows 7: Can not re-install IE9 on Win7 64bit

Can not re-install IE9 on Win7 64bit

Hi,

I tried to uninstall IE9 several months ago because I was told it was conflicting w/ Firefox. After I uninstalled it through control panel the folder and its contents were still on the hard drive. I manually deleted everything but the IEproxy.dll. I could not remove this because it was in use by windows explorer. Now I want to re-install IE9. The install starts but then I get the message that some files were in use by WE restart the CPU to use IE9. After restart all that is in the IE folder is the EIproxy.dll and a folder called SignUp. In that folder is a couple of Icons and nothing else. I have tried installing in safe mode. I can not do a restore because I have no idea when the first change was made and I have installed far to many programs to turn back now. I have tried FixIt which does not help. Is there a way to disable the IEproxy so that the IE install can proceed. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Russ

Hello Russ and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's possible that by manually deleting files from Windows 7 some system files may have become damaged or corrupt and are now preventing the installation of IE9. Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If 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 you should be able to proceed with the IE9 installation. The suggested install method (including prerequisites) is outlined here:

If IE9 still won't install you may want to review these troubleshooting steps:
