    I am unable to install IE7, I have done ALL the suggestions mentioned in this
    newsgroup. I have a former posting. The only error in my ie7.log is
    "Couldn't initialize the Windows Update Manager, HRESULT:0x80040154" How can
    I fix this?

    Presumably you are trying to install via Windows Update?
    Get the installation file here:

    No, this didn't work. I downloaded the file again and I installed it from my
    desktop. I get the exact same Error in the ie7.log.

    Hello Grandpa:

    You'll enjoy your golden years more by downloading Internet Explorer 7
    to your hard drive and installing it from there. Find it here:

    Your question about the Windows Update Manager is a good one but you
    would do better to ask about it in the Windows Update newsgroup.

    There are some 'gotchas' to installing IE 7 which I presume you've read
    about and prepared for. Otherwise, please ask!

    I have done that EXACT download and run it SEVERAL times. I always get the
    same results. I even reinstalled SP2. I tried adding the Addon to the
    registry. I think I have tried everything ... except thr right thing. This
    is the top of the log before the error message.

    [Crosspost to Windows Update newsgroup.]

    In the future, *aways* reply to your original thread, please, Grandpa. For
    now, stick with this thread.

    For reference, here's your earlier thread:

    When you first attempted to install IE7, had you also just installed WinXP

    In your successive attempts to install IE7, did you follow the instructions
    on http://www.ie-vista.com/known_issues.html#pre-install TO THE LETTER?

    Some information you can provide to help diagnose the issue(s):

    1. Open Security Center via Start > Settings > Control Panel. What does
    Security Center report for the status of (a) your anti-virus application,
    (b) your firewall, and (c) Automatic Updates?

    2. Open Add/Remove Programs via Start > Settings > Control Panel. Make sure
    the Show Updates box is checked. Scroll down towards the very bottom of the
    list. Write down the bottom-most four (4) instances of "Security Update for
    Windows XP (KB123456)" and the installation date for each, then post this
    information in a reply to THIS thread.

    3. Please tell us if a Norton application (i.e., Norton AntiVirus, System
    Work or Internet Security) had EVER been installed on the machine or if one
    is installed now.
