Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." This is the error message i get while trying to upgrade my internet explorer. I am running on Vista and would like to get the latest version of the internet explorer. Currently, i am using the old IE, version 6.0 and i am having trouble updating it to the latest version for windows XP.

After many trial and error attempts, which failed, internet explorer has refused to open. With every attempt to open it i always get error messages.

I once tried to download Internet Explorer version 7 for XP Operating Systems and got this error message

"This installation does not support your operating system's current Service Pack version"

I don’t want to use other browsers because of different complications and inconveniences i have experienced. For instance Firefox sometimes malfunctions and blocks other sites, forcing me to uninstall and reinstall for it to respond.

Does anyone know how to successfully upgrade or download windows explorer for Windows XP. I have tried all the ways i know and i am out of ideas. Or, can the OS be the problem? I have thought of loading windows 7 if i don’t get a solution. I believe someone here has an idea on how to fix this problem. I will be thankful for any assistance.

I've read the issue of the internet explorer that your using. This error message "This installation does not support your operating system's current Service Pack version" shows that the Windows XP version that your using is not compatible with the internet explorer 7. So this error message means that you cannot update the internet explorer unless you will upgrade the Operating system to a higher version, like windows XP service pack 2 or 3, windows vista or windows 7.

For this error message "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience", here are the solution that you can try:

  • Click start
  • Click control panel
  • Click network and internet connections
  • Click internet options and then a screen will load up
  • Look for the 'advanced' tab at the upper right side of the screen and then click it
  • Click the 'reset' button located at the very bottom part of the screen
  • It will ask you, "Are you sure you want to reset the internet explorer" and then click 'reset'
  • A small box will pop up, we need to wait for all the things there to be checked and then click "close"
  • Another screen will load up that says, "for changes to take effect you will need to restart the internet explorer"
  • Click ok and then close the internet explorer

Open it back up and if you still have the same problem so we'll be needing to uninstall the internet explorer Note: Before you uninstall the internet explorer be sure that you have another browser to use like Mozilla Firefox UNINSTALLING THE INTERNET EXPLORER.

  • Click start
  • Click control panel and then a screen will load up
  • Click add/remove programs and then another screen will load up
  • Look for the internet explorer and click uninstall REINSTALLING THE INTERNET EXPLORER
  • Open the other browser that you have like Mozilla Firefox
  • Go to the address bar or the http bar at the top
  • Type this web address: filehippo.com search for the internet explorer version that you want and install it
  • Follow the step for the installation and check if its going to be working

If its not going to be working so that means that the only internet explorer version that you can use is the version 6 that you originally have
