IE6 Installation Problem

I helped a user do a repair installation of Windows 2000. After reinstallation, I had to install IE6 again. When I ran ie6setup.exe, it says

“A previous installation has pending work requiring s reboot. you need to restart your computer to complete the installation before running Internet explorer. Setup will now close.”

. The problem persists even after I reboot the machine for several times. I tried several suggestions that I found on web but they all failed to resolve the problem. Finally, I found this solution. Just open up regedit.exe and browse to this key.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

Find the PendingFileRenameOperations value and delete it.

My readers said this works for Adobe CS3 installation, too.
