Windows 7: 9C57 error updating on IE 10, now IE 11-- this one's a toughie

Sorry we couldn't get a better result - it's not often that we fail that badly

Did you do a clean install, or a repair install?
I suspect that a repair install would have worked - but you may have (justifiably) felt that with the amount of messing-around done, it was better to go with a clean install.

Either way - good luck with it!

Yeah, as I mentioned in the post, repair installs continued to fail even after purging all updates and trying all kinds of tricks. There was something that wasn't reflected in the installation logs that just caused the repair install to bomb out at that old 62% mark-- the old Vista upgrade failure point (and no, Vista isn't involved here). There just isn't a whole lot of deep tech info about that failure when it's coming from a Win-7-to-Win-7 repair install.

So yeah, it was a clean install. But with 3 years of cruft gone I'm better off for it, things are speedy again. Thanks!

I know that thread is +1 years old, but I've read it completly cause I had the same problem, unfortunatly, it seems that you didn't really found the solution and didn't wrote it.

I made some research about it on other forum, and I tried something that I didn't thought it would work.

I launched the safe-mode, and intalled IE11 with it, and BINGO, it worked, I really don't know how it did honestly, but as It's a corp pc, I think there was some security files from other software that blocked the installation.

Anyway, that is my solution for those who might have the same problem later, so try this before doing a complete scan or anything else that might take a lot of time, and see if it's working or not.

If you have any other solution, I'd like you to tell me what it is, and if it's more simple than mine.

Thanks again for the great thread.
