MerryAnn,
YES, YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IE8, BUT UNDERSTAND THAT IE8 IS A BETA PRODUCT IN DEVELOPMENT SO YOU MIGHT HAVE SOME ISSUES WITH XP. MOST OF THESE SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE HANDLED WITH XP COMPATIBILITY MODE SETTING. I WOULD GO UP ON THE IE8 WEBSITE IN GOOGLE AND CHECK OUT SOME OF THE NOTES ON IE8 BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO DOWNLOAD IT. I HAVE BEEN USING IT ON MY LAPTOP, BUT I'M USING VISTA HOME PREM. ON THIS MACHINE. I HAVEN'T HAD PROBLEMS WITH IT, BUT HAVE WORKED WITH BETA VERSIONS BEFORE. IT SHOULD BE FINE, JUST READ ABOUT SOME OF THE ISSUES FIRST AND YOU SHOULD DO FINE. OK?

First, open your Internet Options. Delete all temp files and history files.

CC Cleaner is a great free tool to do this and more. Download and install. Run it and clean everything it finds.

Cannot download Internet Explorer from any site I tried


Access: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads

Under the "Popular Downloads", find:

Windows Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP

If you're running Microsoft Vista, instead click "more"
to find IE8 for Windows Vista.

If you're running Microsoft 7, IE8 is pre-installed.

You should simply install the latest version of Firefox. It's a faster, stabler, easier to use browser and it uses far less system resources than IE8.

IE8 is designed primarily with Vista in mind and compatibility with XP is questionable at best.

To roll back to IE6 or IE7 (your previous version) just do a system restore from control panel.

IE8 first tab does not open any website


This is normal. IE8 is still in Beta, and probably won't work properly on 64-bit until its final release.

I've got 64-bit Vista Home Premium, and I still have issues with IE7 if I try to use it. Luckily, Chrome and Firefox work perfectly on 64-bit

IE 8 Installation Problems


I had the same problem. I had IE7 and installed IE8. IE8 caused a lot of problems, so I used system restore. I was back to IE7 but it was not functioning properly. I had to downgrade to IE6 and then reinstall IE7. Its all back to normal. What a pain
