Can no longer install updates on Windows XP

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I recently formatted my computer and did a fresh install of Windows XP professional with Service pack 2 on it.

When I tried to install the Internet Explorer 7 on it, I got an error message.

Error:

Install Windows Internet Explorer        
        
Internet Explorer installation did not complete        
        
You must restart your computer to remove any changes setup has made.        
        
After restarting, click the "Internet Explorer Troubleshooting" shortcut on your desktop for        
more information.

I thought installing all the updates from Microsoft would do the trick but I discovered a major problem. I cannot even install any updates now. When I tried to use the Dial-a-Fix to resolve the problems with the updates, I am getting a different error "Error – 2147319780 was encountered while trying to register c:windowssystem32shdocvw.dll. The error text is : Error accessing the OLE registry"

I even tried to overwrite and delete the dll file "shdocvw.dll" still not working. I do not know what is going on because I am expecting that it should update because Windows XP was freshly installed. Thank you for your help and support.

Do you have the administrator account?

If so, the you can do is that you may set permissions to the system directory, perhaps c:// and then change permissions from the security tab, by giving full control to your privileges. The main problem that might have occurred is that you have a standard ser account. Again, that you may install updates and it says OLE registry. Open Startà run. Then type regedit.exe. This will open a window. Uninstall Internet explorer from your system completely by inserting the disk of O S into your drive then click install additional components. the remove all entries about internet explorer from regedit.exe. Reinstall the latest version and then your problem is solved.

Thanks.
