unable to upgrade to internet explorer 9 on windows 7 computer.

I am running windows 7 x64 on a core 2 quad. I can never seem to upgrade internet explorer 8 to 9. I keep receiving errors. I have deactivated all of the addons. My computer is completely up to date but for this one. I received error code:80246007 What should I do?

Thank you

Thanks for the reply. So what should I do to get IE 9? The link does not apply to Windows 7.

@Noel:

If none of the above works, try the System Update Readiness Tool, because this error often goes hand in hand with 0x800B0100 and is is that hidden error which needs to be fixed, not the one returned by Windows Update (this only applies after all the solutions for 0x80246007 itself have been exhausted)

Fair warning here, the author clearly has an Anti Microsoft agenda. This becomes obvious within the first 2 paragraphs, so the "information" may or may not be accurate. Still, it is in an interesting article. More at: Five Reasons not to “Upgrade” to Windows’ Internet Explorer 9 | ZDNet
