Internet Explorer 8 Beta

By CG IT ·
Anyone running IE 8 Beta? Anyone tried out Web Slices?

Just installed it and am playing around with web slices. Thought I'd ask the community if anyone else has worked with IE 8 Beta and web slices.

IE 8 Beta a nightmare

by rcisowski1 In reply to Internet Explorer 8 Beta

I installed IE8 and it prevented my MS Outlook Express from working properly. Links disabled and no browser would open. Took an hour to find out how to uninstall it. Trial and error using Microsoft instructions didn't work, finally had to go to Windows folder and search for IE 8 uninstall. DON'T USE THE REMOVE PROGRAMS it doesn't work, nor can you remove the XP SP3.

How do I recover from IE8 install

by David Lengel In reply to IE 8 Beta a nightmare

Yes, I am having a nitemare also, after installing IE8. I will not go into detail of the problems. Too many to list and not what I want to discuss currently. I DO want to know how to recover and go back to IE7. I uninstalled IE8 beta. Now IE won't work at all. I tried reinstalling IE7 but it will not work after the reinstall. IE7 starts to load a page, but then completely disapears. No error messages and nothing in event viewer. The internet options is no longer available in control panel. I wanted to reset IE7, just in case some of the add ons were contributing to the problem. I tried reinstalling IE7 from the Windows add/remove windows software. I tried doing a restore from a date pryor to the IE8 install. Noe of these operations worked. Do I have to remove SP3, before I can get IE7 to work again. Suggestions needed, I have done everything I can think of barring reinstallation of Windows and all my software.
