The OP already has the installation file for IE10, but here is an MS link...
Download Internet Explorer 10 from Official Microsoft Download Center

Attachment 335634

...and for IE9:
Download Internet Explorer 9 from Official Microsoft Download Center

Installing either of those files will cause the computer to download more files. My guess is, the links above are not to the most recent installer for either browser version. You can run the install while the computer is not connected to the internet and you will get a functional copy of IE9 or IE10 - so the files are indeed complete stand alone installation files. I guess MS does not want to let us download the most recent installation files. The norm seems to be to download a 40+MB file that in turn, downloads about that amount again during the installation. This is not a good deal for those that pay for each byte that they download :-(
/rant

The OP mentioned that the install for IE10 fails with a "9c59 error". There are lots of "9c59 error" threads. Most require Noel's magic touch.


@Slartybart,
The computer in question rolls back from IE11 to IE8. The computer never had IE9 or IE10 installed... so, it should not be possible for the computer to roll back to IE9 as you requested. There is a slim chance that installing IE9 will let the OP install IE10 without getting the "9c59 error"... but I would not hold my breath. Chances are, the OP will see the "9c59 error" when installing IE9 too. As a test, the OP can roll back to IE8, then install IE9 - followed by installing IE10.

I'll sit back and watch others work their magic with the CBS log and the Windows Update problems.


P.S. Great, I was post #11 :-(

Yes, I have the downloaded executable file from the same link as provided above, and it's true that it does seem to need to download more during the install. I think after reading all of these responses, I am going to try to revert back to IE8 again, then try to install IE9 while not connected to the internet, and see if that finishes ok. If so rinse and repeat for IE10.

Thanks,

I have been following and personally 8 would probably make things more difficult I would start from 9 and work up. The link User sent you I was going to send as well but thought things were going well so didn't.

Here is a list of them Internet Explorer - Microsoft Download Center I cannot give you the exact download because the 8.1 on this machine drives me nuts telling me it is incompatible with it

If it were not for the increase in speed I would go back to 7 to be frankly honest.

Thanks,
All of the prior download links I had were useless because it looks like Microsoft altered the pages to a more windows 10 looking interface or ie11 I suppose with no side or bottom borders,
So they just redirected all of them to the main ie11 download page
Thanks for the input and new link UNI good to see you lurking again
Cheers.
Ha I forgot I'm using windows 10 at the moment

IE 8 was depreciated in the Spring of this year I only found this out when playing with Hyper-V and install a fresh Win7 from the SP1u ISO on a Virtual Machine. When I ran through the process before, all IE's were offered in Windows Update (WU), but during the most recent exercise in the VM, only IE 11 was offered. That's why I asked about a IE9 download - thanks for posting the information.

The key might be the platform update (IE 10 pre-req) I mentioned before - uninstalling that AND running SFC might get wherestheanykey past the Nine Charlie Five Niner error

PS: The Any key is just above the Fix key on the numeric keypad. As you can see, it is a key sequence, not a single key

@wherestheanykey: Wait until a member looks at the CBS information before installing IE9.
There might be a fix to the WU store required.

Steps to take:
Uninstall IE 11
Restart your machine
What browser is installed?
IE 10?
Uninstall IE10
Uninstall KB 2670838 if in your list of Windows Updates
-> 2670838: A platform update is available for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

The other pre-req KBs don't seem to be that important:
2729094: An update for the Segoe UI symbol font in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2 is available
2731771: An update that provides new APIs for conversion between local time and UTC in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 is available
2533623: Microsoft Security Advisory: Insecure library loading could allow remote code execution
2786081: Internet Explorer 10 does not save credentials for a website after you log off from or restart a computer that is running Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
But it's possible one of those might be causing the 9c59 error. If you still get the error, roll back to IE 8 again and remove all of the IE10 pre-reqs if they're on your system (sorry about that, but I can't think of any other 'clean' way of doing it). Hopefully it's just that pesky platform update

Restart your machine
What browser is installed?
... you know the drill, roll back until IE8 (as UNI said) and run the System File Checker

Let's see how far that gets you.

I originally got my IE10 download from the same site as posted a few posts back. Now I have also downloaded the executable for IE9 and thought I'd give that a try. So far, I have uninstalled the update to IE11 and went back to IE8. Then I tried to run the downloaded IE9 executable, while disconnected from the internet, but it failed. Then I tried it while connected to the internet, and it also failed.

So next I am going to try uninstalling the posted KB2670838 update and use the SCANNOW command.

You are welcome :-)


As far as the Windows Updates offering past IE versions:
...starting with IE8 installed
...check for updates
...hide the update that takes you to IE11
...then check for updates again
...it should offer you an older versions of IE.

I just now tested that and I expected WU to offer me IE10, but I was offered IE9 after hiding the IE11 update in a VM that only has IE8. Perhaps MS has decided to agree with us:
re: it is best to install each version in order :-)

Right now I am on IE8 and Windows Update is showing a recommended update for IE10 and an optional update for IE11. But no option for IE9. Maybe there is a KB update that needs to be removed before IE9 will show up.

I just uninstalled all of the KB's listed in Slartybart's post (#15) and still am not seeing IE9 as an update offered by Windows Update. I am going to try to do the SCANNOW process now.

Ok here are the results of the SCANNOW. However it indicated that there were no integrity issues in the command prompt.
