    When I try to install it the required updates just take forever to install I am talking hours. Is there anywhere I can download an offline installer? I have windows xp service pack 2 with IE 6.

    If zebadee's site is still slow, do a Google search for IE7. Sometimes the off-site downloads are faster. I would also suggest making a Restore Point or a backup before installing IE7. It is known to cause problems.

    Thanks but it's not an offline installer. you still have to install the required updates which takes forever.

    IE 7 need a WGA check before installing, i think...

    IE7 isn't worth the trouble. If it isn't installing, count yourself lucky, lol. Try Firefox or Opera instead... even sticking with IE6 is better than IE7.

    Hi :)
    Nothing wrong with IE7. FF isn't all that if your using Vista. Opera latest beta has some interesting features. I have all three on my system (Vista Ultimate 32) IE7 is by far the quicker/most responsive followed by Opera. FF is no competition IMHO. :disagree: :D

    No but it IS an off-site download and can generally be done much faster than downloading from MS.

    I wouldn't have any idea about IE7 with Vista. Neither have anything that I need. I have used IE7 with XP and found it to be severely lacking in performance as well as functionality for my personal tastes and needs.
    But, to each his own. :D
