My way to resolve 9C59 when installing Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7

Hi everybody,

During the last days I tried to update my IE9 on my Windows 7-machine to IE10 – actually, I did not want to initially, but Windows was quite insistent on shutting down trying to install it – and always failed with error 9C59. As you may have found on the Internet, none of the tipps of Microsoft actually work – I succeeded with the following steps (and several trial-and-error attempts and a lot of restarts :-)):

  1. Download and run the Microsoft fix-it-tool (http://support.microsoft.com/mats/program_install_and_uninstall/)
  2. Download the Microsoft System Update Preparation Tool and run it
  3. Uninstall Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 (System Control Panel – Uninstall Programs – Show Installed Updates – Look for IE 9 and double-click)
  4. Download and run the IE10 installer (http://windows.microsoft.com/de-de/internet-explorer/ie-10-worldwide-languages)
  5. Restart as demanded in-between

That worked for me, so good luck, if you are trying this as well (and in-between I also had to run “sfc /scannow” on the command line)
