    You're the first person that seems to have had the same problem as I did. I could not uninstall anything because it was not on my add/remove programs, i couldn't change my internet connections because I didn't have a tools bar. google took over my computer. i tried 3 fixes that i found on the internet and none of them worked. i couldn't use my printer because the icon was gone. i got so upset i couldn't donwload anything just to try downloading, it coulnd't remove anything just to try that. I couldn't do a restore, nothing would change. I could only see 1 choice, I did a factory restore. Man, is that rough. Im on my daughter's laptop now. I really hate that I had to do a factory restore, I wish there was some way that I could reverse all of it, back to just a week ago. I told all my family and friends not to use ie8. when i get my puter back together i will never use ie again, not any form. Let me say this one thing, I am not computer literate. I do have windows xp media center edition.

You should simply install the latest version of Firefox. It's a faster, stabler, easier to use browser and it uses far less system resources than IE8.

IE8 is designed primarily with Vista in mind and compatibility with XP is questionable at best.

To roll back to IE6 or IE7 (your previous version) just do a system restore from control panel.

Tip

Automatically Slipstream Windows XP SP3 plus Hotfixes usign scripts


Ross Smith has one of best methods available to create your self a slipstreamed Windows XP with SP3 installed and all the critical hotfixes, the only problem is that he stopped developing it in April 2009 so the list is about 40 hotfixes short, network installation SP3 version HERE

smithi's great script http://smithii.com/slipstream_xpsp3 please will you update it Ross ?

I also like using RVM Integrator v1.6.7 OR Autostreamer v1.0.30 to slipstream SP3 first to a folder containing the Windows XP SP2 I386 files this will give you a installation folder with all the SP3 files integrated.

Paul Thurrott's WinSupersite gives you a manual method if you prefer tutorial with screendumps HERE also how to exrtract the microsoft image file so that you can create your own bootable CD

Then download the Hotfixes EF2 list for use with using IDM from my public skydrive HERE is my exported list OR if you prefer use Windows Update Downloader and download one of the update lists, you must double click the ULZ file to install it into the interface, update lists HERE


N.B>these 2 won't slipstream, but they can be run after windows is installed:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/7/1/971f55c8-d512-494f-9c5e-7cc3f9b190ee/msxml4-KB954430-enu.exe

http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/7/5/2753aabc-24de-41be-a05b-d41fc76f3aad/msxml6-KB954459-enu-x86.exe

There are other alternatives like hfslip (similiar to smithi's script) and nLite + WinUpdateDownloader I have had limited success with both of them however there are alot of Program Addons available for nLite like WMP11 and IE8 and a whole list from MSFN available HERE
