Internet Explorer 8 kills 7

  Seth Haniel 14:00 08 Jun 2009

Have switched off Auto updates after yesterdays download and upgrade to IE8
It wanted to restart after install and left me with blue screen.
System restore took me back a few days - but IE not working at all now -- so have plumbed for Opera and switched updates off permanently.

did you try a reset of internet explorer 7 as it is useful to have a working internet explorer aswel as opera?

IIRC, if you Uninstall IE9 from Add/Remove Programs, you go back to IE7.

Internet Options not showing in my control panel
xp sp3

IE8 not showing in AddRemove just IE7 as I am on an earlier restore point

did you start off with internet explorer 6 on your pc? if so then if you remove internet explorer 7 it will revert back to 6 .

actually hold that till someone confirms it

  User-1229748 15:27 08 Jun 2009

after installing xp sp3 i don't think you can go back to internet explorer 6

  User-1229748 15:33 08 Jun 2009

if you installed internet explorer 7 after you already had xp sp3 then you can remove internet explorer 7 from add/remove :o)

it was IE8 that has caused the problem
IE& is there but corrupt -

would SFC /Scannow fix it with XP disk in??
