I recommend you to use some other better than IE browser like Firefox, Opera, Chrome at least until Microsoft will make it available via Windows Update.

I want to know my computer is not accepting ie8 and without it i can not chat tell me how to install something which is goood in chat like the previous 1


Hi !


There are some reasons why internet explorer 8 installer does not install.

1. I believe the one you are installing is corrupted, just download new IE8 installer and try to install it.
2. You have installed other internet explorer that might conflict with the IE8 software, just uninstall the previous internet explorer.
3. You computer anti virus firewall is activated, you need to disable it before installing IE8.
4. You operating system is corrupted, somehow missing files and needs to repair your operating system. Don't worry, repairing your operating system would not delete your all software installed, document files and harwares drivers. This only if you are using Windows XP. Here is the link http://www.fixya.com/support/t7675013-problem_in.

I hope this is helpful. Good Luck

I want to know on how to uninstall IE8 on my computer i am running a windows XP service pack 3. I just want to install a fresh copy of IE8 . . . . .


Hi josephc_agni,

You cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 8 if it is set as not removable. This occurs if you install Internet Explorer 8 before you install Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. If this scenario applies to you, then you must uninstall SP3 before you can uninstall Internet Explorer 8.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs.
  4. In the list of currently installed programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 8, and then click Remove.

    NOTE: If Windows Internet Explorer 8 does not appear in the list of installed updates, try the alternative step given below.
  5. Follow the instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
ALTERNATIVE STEP:

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Carefully select and then copy the following command: %windir%\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type Cmd.exe, and then press ENTER.
  4. Right-click inside the Cmd.exe window, and then click Paste to paste the command that you copied in step 1.
  5. Press ENTER to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.

Hi!

I have problem like that before and here is what I did...and it works, until now i can easily access my yahoo messenger..

I am using a mozilla browser.. because it surfs fast....the yahoo messenger can't be accessed.. with the right username and password and the net connection is stable..but no luck to get log in..I did uninstalled and reinstalled yahoo messenger for several times but still it won't work..

Then I search internet and found out that yahoo products rely its connection on microsoft Internet Explorer.....meaning yahoo messenger is best supported by Internet Explorer....So what I did is download the latest Internet Explorer 8 and download also the yahoo mesenger 10.
It did not matter whether you will be using IE8 as your default web browser or not. Just install IE8 on your computer (mine..am still using mozilla as my default web browser)......after installing IE8, install Yahoo Messenger10....

After successful installation.. sign in at yahoo messenger and it will work...

If you want to know the link for IE8 and YM10 here it is..click this file and save it..
1. Internet Explorer version 8 free download
2. Yahoo Messenger 10 free download

I hope this help you..
thanks...much appreciated if you rate this solution..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 :)

IE8 can't install because required updates are older than ones...


This problem is caused by the Multicore Processor support. Enter the system BIOS and dissable the multicore option. Restart the system and load IE8. Shut down and go back into the BIOS. Then reenable the multicore CPU option and restart. Remenver to save options at the end of each BIOS setup.
