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.
Open your tower and reseat all the cables that are running to the CD ROM (generally a flat white cable). Also reseat the other end of the cable to the motherboard too.
Ensure that CD Drive is enabled in BIOS (Press F2 as the system boots up to enter into BIOS)

Using another PC, download MEMTST86 from memtst86.com follow directions to burn it to a CD. Run overnight in your Dell. If you have two memory modules, try removing one then the other and see if the problem goes away. Sounds like a hardware problem.
I have experienced this problem as well, it is either the CD is scratch
or the CD-rom lens needs cleaning, however it can read the content of
the CD, I would susgest you try a another CD-rom ,
borrow it from a friend. It works for me.
the error you are seeing is because a piece of your software such as internet explorer has been corrupted or deleted the cd rom your pc is asking for is a system resore disc. find yourself an xp disc if that is the os you are using and do a repair that should fix your issue
