I am reinstalling Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit for a friend. The restore copy on his computer has reloaded IE8. I have tried to download and install IE11 for Windows 7, but the installer says I must first install a number of updates, eg KB2729094 etc. Although the Windows Update program has installed about 20 updates automauically, it has not twigged that I need to have the necessary updates for IE 11 and it has not recognised that IE 8 is installed. When I go to the page listing the updates required and click on the first, not a lot happens, but since it is a small file, I allow it to download. When I click on the second, KB3731771, a dialog appears saying that only one instance of wusa.exe can be run. I am using another Browser, Sea Monkey in fact, because Microsoft will not accept IE 8 on its website. So can anyone please help me out of this catch 22 situation. How do I update IE8 to IE11??
