I have several Windows 7 machines that fail to install IE 10 thru windows update, additionally if I try to dowload the appropriate x64 version from the Microsoft site it still fails.  Please advise.  Identical machine configurations have updated without incident.

Thanks

Are the few machines Windows 7 32-bit by any chance?  You would need the 32-bit install for these.

Also try running System File Checker. Run SFC /SCANNOW from a command prompt, allow to complete and restart. Test.

I had a similar problem recently.  Try uninstalling IE9 and all the IE9 updates, then reinstall IE9 before installing IE10.  Something may not have installed correctly with the previous IE9 or its updates that interferes with the install of IE10.
