Yea. I found 3 more updates that needed to be done, but the IE9 one still wouldn't work. Im starting to wonder if the reason I can't Upgrade to Home Premium is because of this issue.

With all the problems you have, I think you might have to reinstall Windows Starter with custom install, then use the Home Premium key you have in Anytime Upgrade, then recover your files from Windows.old folder in C:

Download a Windows 7 ISO (perferably Home Premium) since it's the smallest, here Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life And use this Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility My Digital Life to make a Universal disc. Select Starter, activate with your product key, then use anytime upgrade to go to Home Premium. Or, you could just use the Home Premium ISO, but I wouldn't since we don't know your key works with your system. Use this tool to make the USB or DVD Microsoft Store Online

Are you sure that's safe? I'll go to a technician and see what he/she has to say.

It's safe, as that is how I reinstalled my Home Premium and Ultimate when the manu. didn't give me restore discs.... just use the product key you have to activate.

You don't need to backup if you don't format your hard drive. They'll be in Windows.old, but if you wipe your hard drive, you'll need to backup.
