    I have Windows XP with SP3.



    While installing IE8, the installer failed to check for malware and did not install IE8, reporting that a required update can not be installed and asking it to be downloaded manually. After downloading this update, KB932823, it was not installed since a newer version of this file is already installed.

    I've installed IE8 successfully but I've searched my computer and there's no way to open the darn thing. There's no program link at all, even in Program Files/Internet explorer. Nothing on my desktop or start menu either. Driving me insane because firefox only works on my windows xp account for some reason and my mum wants to be able to use the net too. Advice?

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

Ever since i installed internet explorer 8 my right click dosent work so icant save pictures copy, past etc i tries rebooting ie 8 that didint work and the add ons thing didint work could you please tell...


Access "Control Panel".
Access "Add/Remove Programs".
Uninstall IE8, which will re-install the previous version (IE6? IE7?).
Reboot, and see if the right-mouse-button is now working.

Replace internet explorer 8 with internet explorer 7


You need to find the old installation files for IE7, uninstall IE8, install IE7 and then make sure that automatic updates are switched off, otherwise Windows will update it to IE8 again automatically.

Are you sure you want to use IE7? IE8 is more secure.

In fact, Firefox is much more secure and faster than either IE7 or IE8.

What is this? Webpage error details User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.0; GTB6; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.5.21022; .NET CLR 3.5.30729;...


Ok, I finally solved the problem, although it was for sure not the most
elegant way and I'm still not sure I didn't broke something else in the
process...

For those who may want to give it a try, here is all I did up to the moment
it started working again:
- Remove every single Microsoft internet software: All Windows live
applications, IE8, .Net Platform, etc.
- Remove every single app I knew had a link with IE : Sun's Java, Adobe
Flash Plugin, Skype, Cooliris, etc.
- Go to IE7's menu: Tools -> Options -> Contents -> Certificates, and remove
every single one issued by or for Microsoft (this is the step I'm the most
afraid of..., if I were you I'd try the first time without doing this...)
- Go to IE7's menu: Tools -> Options -> Advanced, and restore original
configuration (which in theory sets IE back to the "just installed" moment).

After all that, my.live.com is working again flawlessly, even after
re-installing IE8.

Of course, this was a last desperate move after having tried everything else.
If I had to do it again, I'd follow this trial procedure:
- Uninstall IE8 and restore original config in IE7.
- (if still not working) : Uninstall all programs with a IE plugin and try
restoring IE7 original config again.
- (if still not working) : Uninstall all Microsoft Internet software
(specially Live stuff and .Net) and try again restoring IE7 config.
- (if still not working) : Remove non root Microsoft certificates and try
again restoring IE7 config.
- (if still not working) : Remove all remaining Microsoft certificates and
try again restoring IE7 config.

I am unabale to use smart web printing with IE8. I have a C4480 multifunction printer


In answer to your question, yes, there is no harm in leaving Add-ons disabled, however, some website features like Flash applets will not automatically start. Let’s try uninstalling IE8 and rolling back to IE7 to see if this resolves the print problem or to determine if there is something else going on. Here is a link the link to a Microsoft Knowledge Base article that has the steps to uninstall IE8 and return to IE7:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700
Once you are back to IE7 try and print from IE and some of your other apps. If you can print from IE7 then we will know that there is something definitely within your IE8 installation we need to troubleshoot. If you are STILL unable to print web pages we will know there is something else going on. Lets us know what you find out.

Installed IE8 and I hate it, want to go and reinstall IE7


Try uninstalling IE8 and it should put IE7 back in. Failing that uninstall 8 then 7 then update to 7. Of course if they want you to use 8 then they probably took 7 off the udate page. Then you could backup hard drive, re-install windows, put in the service packs and get back to IE7. Option 3: learn to live with 8.

Added ie 8 beta, uninstalled, ie will not start


basically your ie8 uninstallation is bad...try and see if you can get an ie8 uninstallation toolkit at microsoft.com to uninstall ie8 properly. Else, you might have to reinstall ie7 after uninstalling ie8.. this same problem persisted when micorosft released ie7 and i was supporting ie7 when released. so take my word. happens with all ie beta versions..
