I tried to install IE 7 but i got the message in the end to restart to undo all the changes. I went to the troubleshooting site on microsoft and they gave me this...they said to detect for any unwritable keys and change the permission on them in regedit. I got these to Unwritable keys in the log "IECUSTOM: Unwriteable key HKCR\mailto" and "IECUSTOM: Unwriteable key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto" and i tried to change the permission on them and i couldnt...it said it couldnt access the key and then i tried to change its permission and wen ever i tried it said it couldnt save the permission "access denied"..i dont know why becuze i am administrator..its just wont save any permission on both of those Keys. And i think thats why IE 7 wont install..

Can you download and save this version

http://www.filehippo..._explorer/?1248

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up, click disable all, click apply and reboot

Install IE beta 3

If it installs, go to msconfig, put the dot in normal start up, click apply and reboot

Try to install IE7 RC1

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this

Check the anti virus is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor


Try IE7 RC1

You can use this guide to repair XP

Possibly, you will need to press the start button and keep tapping the delete key, (possibly F2) until the PC enters set up. Change the boot order to CD ROM Drive then hard drive, press F10 then press enter, load the XP CD then type Y then press enter, as it reboots, look for press any key to load from CD, press enter

You will need your XP product key to complete this

The XP Product Key is a 25 character alpha numerical code, which does not include the sequence OEM


If you have audio / video files which are subject to DRM you should check with the provider for known issues with performing an XP repair install

Click this to view the XP Repair Install Guide

Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

The XP repair install will look and run as a normal install, however, you must not see a request to format the drive


After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update
