Internet Explorer 11 fails to install -Error Code 9C59

Asked by Colin Bennett on 11/22/2013 at 4:45 PM

I am having problems getting IE11 to install on my desktop running Windows7 64bit.

Windows update downloads the file and trys to install but fails with above error message. Having searched the above error code, most refer to updating to IE10.

I am not sure if the problem is with windows update or IE11.

I tried downloading directly from Microsoft and it also failed to install.

I tried installing with a clean boot and that hasn't worked.

Disconnected from the internet and disabled Norton and that didn't work. 

Tried the System Update Readiness Tool. Didn't  fix issue.

Ran SFC /scannow. no faults.

tried deleting system32/catoot2 folder to no avail.

Cant do a system restore as my restore points are only from the last week  and I've been scratching my head linger than that

Any help appreciated.
