  • Hi,

    Please make sure you have installed Service pack 1 (SP1) .

    Make sure that you have prerequisite updates installed, we can reference Prerequisite updates for Internet Explorer 11 to obtain the prerequisite updates for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7. Additionally, you may review the IE11_main.log file under the Windows folder (for example, C:\Windows) to find out what prerequisite update is not installed correctly.

    Make sure that your video card driver is compatible.

    Meanwhile, we can uninstall Internet Explorer 9 before installing Internet Explorer 11. To uninstall Internet Explorer 9:

    Click the Start button, type Programs and Features in the search box, and then click View installed updates in the left pane.

    Under Uninstall an update, scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section.

    Right-click Windows Internet Explorer 9, click Uninstall, and then, when prompted, click Yes.

    Click Restart now to finish the process of uninstalling Internet Explorer 9.

    After your computer restarts, try to install Internet Explorer 11 using an Internet Explorer 11 Offline installer package.

    If the issue still persists, please try to delete the SoftwareDistribution folder then re-install IE11:

    1. Simultaneously press Windows key + R to open run command box.

    2. In run command box, type: services.msc and press Enter.

    3. Search for Windows Update service, then right click on it and select Stop.

    4. Navigate to "C:Windows"folder, delete (or Rename e.g. to "SoftwareDistributionOLD") the "SoftwareDistribution" folder.

    5. Restart your computer and then try to install Internet Explorer.
    Hope it could be helpful.
