IE8 will not install in XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Automatic update tells me it is installing IE8 but it stalls with no error messages, I've left it overnight with no progress. I have also tried to install directly from Windows download, but again it just hangs once the installer starts.

    I have also noticed that Windows Indexer is not working it sits in system tray saying "waiting to receive indexing status"

    Please help.

  • Download IE8 from here : http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/internet-explorer-8-details.aspx

    If updates are failing, then please post Windowsupdate.log file.
