I would use the System Restore function and revert back to before you installed it. You should use Firefox if you're not already instead of IE 8. It's still in BETA anyways.

You can do the system Restore in Safe Mode. Press F8 every few seconds when you start the computer.

Google chrome is loaded in windows 8 but is running in desktop ,which means i cant use java or other etc

as of what I understood from what you have written(I didn't understand most) you want to run two instances of Chrome in the "Modern style Windows 8" and the Desktop, sadly it's impossible as to many crashes and bugs with it =
Just an example.
So, can you please answer these questions (don't type fast, write it clear and short), so that I can finally understand your problem:
1. Is Java installed on your PC?
2. You are using Windows 8, right?
3. Your primary browser is Chrome, yes?
4. IE10 "Modern" can't run Java or Flash?
5. Does the Desktop IE run Java and/or Flash?

If you have more details = just add them at the bottom.

The Aspire touch internet will not load up, i just get an "about blank" and my computer freezes


If you have upgraded to IE 9, uninstall it and use IE 8. I have seen this a lot lately and Microsoft is working on the issue(s). If you are not using IE 9, try using your System Restore command to go back to a date when the pc was working correctly.

Good Luck

How do I get IE 8 icon on my desktop

Go to the installation directory. It is probably C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer.
Look for a file there called iexplore.exe.
Right click on that file.Then use the "Create ShortCut" menu pick! That creates the shortcut. Last step: just drag the shortcut to your desktop. Done!

Have you defragged the hard drive recently? Right click on the drive and go to "Properties" then "Tools" to defragment the drive. You might also invest in some more memory. Good luck!
