I.Explorer 8 - button in page showing too tiny to use

I installed IE8 (after re-installing Windows because my first attempt completely screwed up the O/S) but when I'm on a page that has buttons, they show up very tiny. Even if I zoom in, they remind tiny. Any idea how to solve this ? tks..

    actually, I found the answer. For the buttons on a webpage to show in a normal size, I had to UNCHECK the 'enable visual styles on buttons and controls in webpages', which seems to be contrary to the logic... Internet Options - Advanced - UNcheck this box.. and tadaa, the navigation buttons in webpages are back. Thanks.

I m trying to install internet explorer 8 but .it show no entry found.how can i solve the problem


You've tried to install IE version 8 on a windows system (would like to know WinXP/Vista/Win7 ?) that has one or more registry problems. FIX: run a registry sanity checker/fixer appropriate for your version of Windows and retry the IE8 install - the install will
remove (clean out) any invalid/useless IE8 junk already on the system - such as your invalid IE8 registry entries.

www.pctools.com offers a Windows registry checker, but Microsoft offers SCANREG.EXE free - see:

www.support.microsoft.com/kb/183887

for appropriate command-line switches.

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.

Replace internet explorer 8 with internet explorer 7


You need to find the old installation files for IE7, uninstall IE8, install IE7 and then make sure that automatic updates are switched off, otherwise Windows will update it to IE8 again automatically.

Are you sure you want to use IE7? IE8 is more secure.

In fact, Firefox is much more secure and faster than either IE7 or IE8.

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.

Installed IE8 and I hate it, want to go and reinstall IE7


Try uninstalling IE8 and it should put IE7 back in. Failing that uninstall 8 then 7 then update to 7. Of course if they want you to use 8 then they probably took 7 off the udate page. Then you could backup hard drive, re-install windows, put in the service packs and get back to IE7. Option 3: learn to live with 8.
