Thanks. Do you mean save it on a USB memory stick on another machine and then plug it in to the wonky one to install? I'm pretty sure that you can't go higher than IE8 on an XP machine.Download IE10 on a seperate machine, choosing to install later, then install on the PC as required.
Quick search shows IE9 as the newest versionThanks. Do you mean save it on a USB memory stick on another machine and then plug it in to the wonky one to install? I'm pretty sure that you can't go higher than IE8 on an XP machine.
Do you know if that will work on a single PC? It's for network installations and I don't want it to do something obscure.This link should allow you to download SP3 to another computer and just run it from a USB drive or DVD on the XP machine: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24
This is what I used to do and it worked, takes a while though.Have you tried using Windows Update rather than going to the Microsoft update page? I had to do the same thing just last week and it worked fine for me that way. Once I had installed the 124(!) security updates, it let me install IE8. Prior to that the machine was using IE6.
