I installed an updater program from Hippo onto my laptop and it came up with IE8 to install. However, there was a problem with the iexplore.exe but I cannot remember the full message. Now Internet Explorer will open for a few seconds then close.
I tried restoring to a previous date but that did not help.
Any thoughts please?

so your Hippo Updater must be picking betas up.

You could always use another browser such as Firefox.

Other than that I'm sure that someone will be along to help in a bit.

Ah maybe. It was late when I was fiddling.
Cannot uninstall it now though. Not sure where the details were saved to

I've got IE7 and have just run File Hippo Updater and it hasn't picked up IE8 for me even though it's picked up other Betas.

Ah, I must be just lucky then....

Neither of them helped. IE8 is not on my Add/Remove

Thanks though
