Open Windows Explorer and locate IE5 setup in the directory,double click the seup icon and see if this will complete the setup.
If this does not work,open the Control Panel and double-click on the Add/Remove Programs icon,select IE and click the Remove button,when the window comes up choose to restore a previous version,and click OK.
Now go back to update to see if it will run successfully.

If the first answer dont work let me know. I can tell you the files and dlls left after trying to remove IE. This will allow a clean install.

I too had the same problem with IE 5.5. I had to uninstall IE 5.5 and boot the PC up in safe mode and then load the upgrade. The safe mode prevented any other programs (i.e. virus protection software) from interfering with the install. You could also try disabling your virus protection software. And installing that way. MS products sometimes do not co-exist with virus software very well.
