Internet Explorer & Upgrading

By jbeaucaire ·
I had to reinstall WIN2K and it put IE 5.0. I tried to up grade to IE5.1, 5.5, 6.0 & 6.1. All to not avail. I keep getting this message For 6.1 update:
WINDOWS UPDATE SETUP
A previous instalation has pending work requiring a reboot. You need to restart your computer to complete that installation before running Internet Explorer Setup. Setup will now close.

When I try a 5.x update I get this:

A previous program installtation was never completed. You need to restart your computer tocomplet that installation before running Internet Explorer Setup. Setup will now close.

Internet Explorer & Upgrading

Try this:
Search for files: wininet.dll and urlmon.dll, and rename them to "wininet.old" and "urlmon.old" respectively. (That way if there is a problem you can always rename them to their original names). After you rename these files, reboot. After PC boots up, try re-installing IE. I have experienced this problem quite frequently and this usually seems to resolve it.
