Default Help needed!

Hi I am having trouble installing the internet 6 service update from windows update. I download everything fine and get to about 75% of the installation and then it says it couldn't complete the installation try closing some applications and try again I have tried installing it in safe mode but it still wont work. Since the initial probs I have been using a different browser but now I need IE 6 for my daughter to get onto MSN messenger! I have tried turning off everything that is running but I still cannot get it to install.

Please help!

Thanks
