Anyone experienced my problem? updated IE 8 today to find when I activate the browser it flashes on the desktop and disappears!
Any answers out there. It's fortunate I have Firefox.

How did you come by the update?

The update was an MS update scheduled for Tues. 30 June.

Nothing here, and I have just checked again.

Neither of my PCs using IE8 have been offered any updates.

I've had no update offer either, which was the reason for my earlier query.

MS Updates are, normally, on the second Tuesday of each month unless there is a special reason for doing so at other times.

According to the Microsoft IE8 home page, the last update was on December 17:

Had the yellow shield on the task bar! the whole update seemed genuine! Just done a 'Repair' XP Pro install. Still the same no IE 8! Have installed IE 7 & IE 8 but IE 6 from the repair is still coming up as my browser.

Happened to my daughter quite a while ago. Couldn't fix it anyway she tried so now using Firefox!

Having done a 2nd download of IE 8 and installed it. It know comes up on the desk top, without fault info. lines. Clicking links in 'Favorites' now work also, as do other links.
It does look as if the 'Registry Cleaner' I down loaded was too enthusiastic. From now on I shall steer clear of them.
Many thanks to those who replied.

Just to add confusion to uncertainty, it seems, I`ve just had an update too, but not for IE8 which I`ve been on for several weeks.

Mine is for the dreaded .Net framework:

XP Update to .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 for the .NET Framework Assistant 1.0 x86 (KB963707)
