    So are you saying you've only had this problem since switching from IE6 to IE7?? If so go back to IE6. Let me know what's going on.....

    Try shutting down as there are some updates that require that to install.

    Hi bash62 there is a problem with the wiindows updates try the fix below and then it should fix the problem,

    Manually registering files solves the problem

    If you find that Windows Update refuses to install most patches, you can register its missing DLLs yourself. This can be accomplished by manually entering seven commands (shown in Step 2, below) at a command prompt. If you need to run the fix on multiple machines, it's easiest to use a batch file, as Steps 1 through 5 explain:

    Step 1. Open Notepad (or any text editor).

    Step 2. Copy and paste the following command lines into the Notepad window (the /s switch runs the commands silently, freeing you from having to press Enter after each line):

    regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
    regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
    regsvr32 /s wups.dll
    regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll

    Step 3. Save the file to your desktop, using a .bat or .cmd extension.

    Step 4. Double-click the icon of the .bat or .cmd file.

    Step 5. A command window will open, run the commands, and then close.

    The next time you visit the Windows Update site, you should not have any problem installing the latest patches.

    In Control panel, Add/Remove Programs, Windows Internet Explorer 7 uninstall will do it and that puts back 6.0.
