When I try to update Internet Explorer 7.x by clicking on the Solution icon in Secunia PSI, I get the automatic updates page from Microsoft, and it says the update failed. It shows error code 0x80242006. This happens repeatedly over several weeks. All Microsoft has to suggest is to repeat the attempt, and many repetitions have all failed.

Download Dial-a-fix:
http://wiki.lunarsoft.net/wiki/Dial-a-fix

Run it and make sure that all the Policies... are clear and run Flush SoftwareDistribution and select No to create a new History when you run Windows Update then select the green check mark ( check all ) then select go.

Reboot then start IE and select Tools then Windows Update.
