Thursday, February 05, 2009 3:52 PMHello. I am using Windows XP SP2 on a Mac OSX, via a Parallels program. When I try to download an upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 in order to upgrade to SP3, I get a message "We were unable to install. . . ." I've tried making exceptions to the firewall, even canceling the firewall, but nothing works. Meanwhile, I can't get any updates whatsoever. I'd be grateful for any guidance. Apologies if I'm in the wrong subject category.
