I cannot install certain windows updates and IE9

I am planning to do a repair install but look at that guy's problem... He had to do a clean install in the end because of errors...? I don't want to take any risks, why is this problem so difficult to solve????

How long is a piece of string?
Most of us DON'T have problems with updates.
You & the others seeking help are the exceptions....
Now you have to decide what to do next.

Alright, I'm ready to do a repair install. I have one question though. In the article it says:

You can only do a repair install with the same edition Windows 7 installation disc for the same edition of Windows 7 that you have installed.
You cannot use a OEM Windows 7 "Factory" Restore/Recovery type of installation disc that came with or created from a store bought computer to do a repair install with. These can only be used do a clean install instead.
You can use a retail OEM Windows 7 installation disc to do a repair install with.
You can use a retail (full or upgrade) Windows 7 installation disc to do a repair install with.

I have five DVD's that I created with my Toshiba laptop upon the first startup. Four are used to reinstall Windows and perform a factory reset. I labelled the fifth DVD "toshiba repair disc (windows recovery environment)". Can I do the repair install with what I have? A retail OEM disc would be any of these DVDs that I have or a Windows 7 disc from the store?

Can I perform the repair install at all if I download a file from Microsoft's website??

Wonderful! Thanks for reporting back.

A reminder of the importance of Back ups, preferably to an external hard drive.
System Restore is also worth while considering.
Good luck & safe surfing.
