WGA error in IE 7 when trying to download Windows Defender RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just re-installed Windows XP Pro on my computer today and when I try to download Windows Defender, the WGA validation checker gives me an error in my Internet Explorer and causes it to close.


    After installing XP, I downloaded SP2 and all the other critial updates as well as a few optional.  When I try to download Windows Defender from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=435BFCE7-DA2B-4A6A-AFA4-F7F14E605A0D&displaylang=en&mg_id=10134 , I click on continue to begin Windows validation, the following error pops up:


    Internet Explorer has encountered and problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.

    Please tell Microsoft about this problem.  We have created an error report that you can send to help us improve Internet Explorer.  We will treat this report as confidential and anonymous.

    The following information is displayed:

    Error signature
    AppName: iexplore.exe      AppVer: 7.0.6000.16544    ModName: unknown
    ModVer:      Offset:  00ad01f1

    I chose to send the error report.

    After browsing through the forums, I ran the MGA Diagnostic tool from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 and here is the information I received:
