Exclamation Cannot Reinstall internet explorer 7

I'm having a problem reinstalling IE7, yesterday I locked myself out of my pc and I had to use windows xp repair to fix the OS along with resetting the password. after about 25 minutes I logged back in at 5:15pm, I go to internet explorer and xp pro put back the old copy of IE6 on my pc. I download IE7 and begin doing the setup and gets halfway finished and then cancels the rest of the setup. on the setup it stayed on installing windows internet explorer 7 core for about 6 minutes and then cancels everytime and ask me to reboot the pc, but I'm always step 1 again. has anybody else had this problem and can help me out if they don't mind ?

also could I take my legal copy of xp pro sp2 and put IE7 and other custom software and put it on DVD disc ? sort of like a customized xp slip stream ?

Try booting into safe mode and installing IE7 there.

As for creating a customized Windows XP installation CD, nLite is a nice free tool you can use. While you can add and remove programs, I'm not sure if you can integrate IE7 into the installation however.
