"Installation cannot continue until the following applications are closed:

Internet Explorer

Please close the application(s) listed above and click "Try Again" to continue the Installation. Click cancel to end Setup."

I don’t actually use IE, as I have FireFox. I’ve made sure to close every application that uses IE, such as msn etc, and I’ve gone into Task Manager to try and close it. However, if I close iexplore.exe in the Task Manager, another one comes up…

Any help?

Sounds to me like you may have some malware attached to your computer. Do you regularly run and update anti-spyware software?

A virus is running that loads IE automatically, probably using your system to send some of the millions of spam that are going around the world each day. I would get it disinfected.
