Please help - am in a total quandry!
Recently after a clean install of windows, was dowloading & installing all the updates and Microsoft sneaked in I.E.9 in as an update.
I uninstalled I.E.9 from win.upates (but now realize I didn't uninstall the update for I.E.9 KB2761451) along with it, if it matters. Now my toubles began!! These two security updates failed:
KB2544521 - error: 80242016. Security update for I.E. 8 for windows 7x64. . The first time I tried to install it, it said ' it is for a different hardware platform', 2nd. time that it was ' for XP', 3rd. time said that it was 'already installed on this PC' (but it is not in the update history as successful.
KB2598845 - error: 80242016 - Update for I.E.8 compatibility view list for windows 7x64. Install attempt resulted in 'not applicable to your computer'.
At my wits end now, please in dire need of advice.
How and what can I do to fix this?
Question: When I go to 'about I.E.' it makes no mention of SPl though all the updates with SPl were installed successfully. Should it not specify this?
Your help would most appreciated - thanks.
