If I may.
When Noel gives a repair to another member computer the odds are it is not the repair needed for another computer. It varies from computer to computer.

Please do what is requested in Noel's post # 9.
Have a nice day.

I have Windows 7 pro 64 bit
I See many are having this issue during the IE11 Install failure Code 9C59, I also had this.
I ran into this solution posted by Lee_Ellaway . Thanks to him I followed his instructions exactly as he posted and It works. So far no further issues and all updates are successful. at this page
IE 11 - Fails to Install (Windows Update or Standalone) - - Microsoft Community
His entry as follows
1. Open CMD (run: CMD)
2. Copy this:

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*11*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

3. Right-click on CMD window, paste
4. Let that run.
5. Download stand-alone installer for IE 11 for Windows 7 (Download Internet Explorer 11 - Microsoft Windows)
6. Install, reboot.

Hope This Helps.
I also had the run in with the MS Support wanted 100 bucks. His story as to the problem seemed a way bit far fetched.
