I just went thorugh this a month ago on my personal laptop and a customers all within a week. If you try to boot into safe mode does it hang or not want to go into safe mode? It may also seem to be letting you have less and less control or won't load certain programs. Then you have a virus. I never could identify it as I had so little control so I ended up doing a system restore. If that sounds familiar the first thing you should do is save or back up your important files or documents. If this follows the same path then you won't be able to do anything within a short while.
If it isn't a virus in your case then you should be able to fix this by booting off of your windows cd and doing a system repair. That will replace any corrupt files such as the control panel cpl files that create the control programs.
Hope you have virus in your system Download a free antivirus program such as avast or avg , and update it and run a full system scan. For Internet explorer issue reset the internet explorer setting to default one.
If this is not resolved your problem , Format you hard disk.
Its not a big problem dear ,you can uninstall the ie8 from add or remove programmes in control panel.
Goto control panel ,open add or remove programmes,find out the ie8 ,select and remove it from there.If you unable to find the ie 8 in the list or if therewill be no remove option there then tru wo remove windows service pack3 from the same list.
Best of luck
