All those thinking of upgrading IE7 to IE8 Beta BEWARE I did and all was fine EXCEPT it seems a lot of online secure logins won't accept IE8 Tescos for one says upsupported browser please UPDATE to IE7!!!!!! Abbey said the same but DID work with IE8,luckly I could roll back the system to IE7.

Thats why its called Beta.Im sure when it comes out as a final package most online retailers will support it.)

Just warning others that thats a setback at the moment, to be aware of,they may not be able to restore their setup and then they will be unable to get online to their banks.
P.S I think the Banks need to get up to speed on this.

Using beta 2 and so far no problems with secure sites.

do you think setting IE8 to compatibility mode would solve the problem?

I'm running IE8 in this mode and all seems fine at this end.

beta how do you edit "user aagent string"?

  karmgord 20:58 08 Oct 2008

As Beta says,I've modified the registry to report IE8 as IE7 now sites work under IE8

Captain Facetious says: you should use Firefox. Its a million times better than IE and is not made by the evil Microsoft, which only exists to provide fuel for Bill Gates money furnace, which he uses to burn Steve Jobs in efigy over and over again.
