Under these circumstances best is to go to control panel. Then go to add/remove programmes. Scroll down to IE 8 and click to remove it. Once removed reinstall it from Microsoft web site. You will have a new updated IE 8

How do i install internet explorer 7 on to my pc ?

It may be because you have a newer version of Internet Explorer already installed. Internet Explorer comes pre-installed on every Windows PC, and is usually updated regularly as part of the Windows update. I believe the current version is IE 11.

that should update it to the latest version.

Another one is

One of those will work.

My windows HP computer wont let me use a multi media projector ? Tried hot keys. I had a new windows version installed the other day and has not worked since

Hello kirk201,
This should easily be fixed by looking up the updated drivers for your display (Ie video card etc).
Since it's a new version of Windows it more than likely doesn't have the updated version.

How i remove ie9 i want ie8

Call it downgrade or restore or uninstalling , If you are having trouble with IE 9 beta which is breaking your add-ons or accelerators, below is the step on how you can uninstall IE 9. ( Check out the Feature list ) and roll back to previous version of IE 8 or IE 7 you had.

Click on Start Button and type in Programs and Features in the search box > Click View installed updates. Since this is Beta it gets installed as Updates and hence is not in uninstall list. and then click View installed updates.

Search for Windows Internet Explorer 9
When found right-click > Uninstall, Click yes when asked.
You will need to reboot your computer to complete un-installation
This will bring back the older version with everything right in place.

There are only a few things that will cause this.

You don't have permissions. ie trying to install something when you have guest privileges. Log in as admin or run the install under admin credentials.

The program is meant for a different version of Windows. It may be for a new version ie Vista or 7 and the installer isn't recognized. Or it may be a setup for 64 bit versions and you have 32 bit. Not much you can do here.

Sometimes if you have no space on C it will error out on the setup.

The windows installer program may need to be updated. This isn't very common but if needed it usually updates when you run the windows updates and patches. If not you can download direct from microsoft. Just go to and search for windows installer. It's a very small download so this just takes a minute.

Thats about all I can think f that will definitely cause this. Of these the admin rights and the installer are the usual suspects.

I have a 64 bit HP pavilion with vista home premium. When the latest automatic update occured, it shut down Internet Explorer. In order to access the web I did a system recovery and shut off the automatic...

Remove the update the caused the problem in add remove programs, then update manually, or turn off auto update. You can also install and use firefox instead of IE or try doing a repair to IE. Usually IE updates to version 8 and it has problems - version 7 works fine. Uninstalling 8 changes it back to 7. Version 8 will not download properly on a lot of sites - they changed it so U have to use Windows explorer instead to download from FTP sites, and it will not connect to some sites due to all of the security they installed. You could try using default settings on security and turn off filters to see if that works. When windows updates IE it automatically changes to high security.
