Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8
Got myself into a real problem trying to upgrade from Internet Explorer 7 to version 8. I should add that IE 7 worked flawlessly so I carried no legacy corruption into the IAE 8 download and install. Here is what happened:
At first IE 8 opened and said powered by Yahoo and after it came up I minimized it. However when I tried to bring it back up only half a page displayed.
I then uninstalled IE 8 and using Mozilla Firefox I tried to download IE 7 and it failed to download.
Next using Mozilla I Googled searches in an attempt to learn how to resolve the problem and learned that one must first uninstall SP3 before IE 7 can be installed.
I dutifully uninstalled SP3 and got a popup window telling me that some applications would not work if SP3 is uninstalled - I clicked OK.
I tried to download and install IE 7 (at this point Mozilla Firefox was still functional) - IE 7 still would not work. When attempting to open an error message pops up telling me that Internet Explorer encountered a problem and needs to close
I panicked at this point and tried System Restore at different dates prior to the attempted IE 8 debacle. At this point Mozilla no longer worked. So I have no browser.
I cannot get into safe mode and have run disk cleaners, virus scans, registry scans and rebooted several times with no success.
SP3 is shown on the hard drive and apparently is functional.
I have Win XP home edition with 160 gigs of HDD and 1.2 GB memory and once had a workable current version of Mozilla FIrefox.
Can someone please suggest a remedy.
Firstly Remove SP3 through
Then Download SP2, it works fine. Either way u can also go for SP3
Then try again for IE* or Mozilla
Hope It Works Out ur Problem
