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?

Dell Dimension L733R Windows Explorer hang


Hi, yes XP does have system restore, which you can access through safe mode, pressing the ESC key during bootup will get you there. I would not uninstall IE8, but disable by using Firefox which is a much safer browser for XP, you can down load this for free.
Hope this helps

Internet explorer wont open on my dell inspiron 1501, i have internet connection


try going to safemode w/ networking.

if you're using windows XP try this

to access that mode, shutdown the computer completely and after 20 secs turn in on again, as soon as you see the dell screen immediately strike F8 key continuously, if that is successful you should be at the advance menu options. use your arrow keys to choose and highlight safemode w/ networking and hit enter. if you see your operating system after just hit enter again.

once at safemode try to pull up internet explorer if still this doesnt work, go to the contol panel click internet options if your in classic view but if not click network connections first then click internet options. click the advance tab, that should be at the least right hand side, click reset which is under restore advance settings.

if your using IE8 at windows XP operating system, try uninstalling the IE8, to do that try the instructions below.

click start
click control panel
click add/remove program
find and click the IE8 then click uninstall or remove
then restart the computer

if still doesnt work try to install a different browser like mozilla firefox, google chrome or maxthon

and if still doesnt work then try to reinstall the operating system back to factory settings.

i hope this helps

Cannot get to my email vie IE8 or chrome, this started in feb.


you have stated the exact problem but try this one:

(this applies to all windows OS)
after opening the internet explorer,
click tools
click internet options
click advance tab
click reset (not the reset advance. you should also close any program, application or browser except the ie that you opened up for the reset)
after that close the browser and open it up again, try to access your email.

if that doesnt work, if you are using windows XP you could try to uninstall the IE8 so you can go back to IE7.

click start
click control panel
click add/remove program
find the IE8 then click uninstall after that restart computer>

try again access your email
i hope this helps.
Pls rate my resolution thanks!

Ever since upgrading to Internet Explorer 8, I find that I cannot print emails, open up many attachments, and retrieve other information. For example, if I click on a link, I get the following message:...


Ther are known conflicts with Vista and IE8 - particularly with Vista 64-bit.

I would suggest uninstalling IE8 and reinstalling IE7 or using an alternative browser such as "slimbrowser" (excellent program) or similar.

IE8 can be uninstall by using Add or Remove Programs module in Windows XP, but in Windows Vista, Windows Internet Explorer 8 is not considered to be a ‘program’. Instead, IE8 is categorizing as an ‘update’. Thus, users will not be able to find Windows Internet Explorer 8 in “Programs and Features” of Windows Vista.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, go to Control Panel, and click on Uninstall Programs link or Programs and Features icon. Then on Tasks pane on the left, click on View installed updates link. Locate and select Windows Internet Explorer 8 in the list of installed updates, and then click on Uninstall button. Click on Yes when asked that are you sure want to uninstall the update.

If there is no option of IE8 been found on “Programs and Features” or “Add or Remove Programs” dialog box, or uninstallation of Internet Explorer 8 is unclean (causing error message such as setup cannot continue because a more recent version of Internet Explorer has been detected on this computer when trying to downgrade to IE7), try to manually run the spuninst.exe.
To do so, go to C:\WINDOWS\ie8\spuninst\ folder (your drive letter may be different), and run spuninst.exe.

Restart the computer after uninstallation completed.

Hope that helps :)

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.
