    (Using Windows XP Home Edition IE 7)

    Part of the Patch Tuesday patch cycle was an update for IE 7.

    I have my MS updates set to notify.

    All updates were easily downloaded and installed, except for the IE 7 update.

    I always disable security software before I download and install that stuff.

    The IE 7 update was very difficult, the others went without effort, but I just couldn't get the IE 7 update to download, no matter what method for updating I tried ! After each attempt to download, it sort of aborted without response/continuation.

    In the end, for some reason (?) the update did succeed.

    Did anyone else have a problem with this one or others ?

    No problems here on either Vista x64 or XP x64, both went fine...... Maybe chalk it up to just some odd glitch? As long as it finally installed, I think you're good....

    Yeah, I think I've some idea about why it failed initially.

    Complicated story though.
