    IE8 Disaster

    I tried to download and install IE8, but the installation failed and now I have no access to the internet. If I click on the IE icon Frontpage comes up with screeds of text in it. Closing Frontpage leaves me with nothing. I hae tried System Restore but it says no changes have been made. Help, what do I do?

    I have IE8 on another PC which is networked with the problem one. Is there a file on this PC that I could install from?

    What operation system are you using? Do you have other apps that access the internet working, such as email or IM? Have you tried another browser?

    Have a look in Control Panel at Programs and Features. You should see the bit that shows what windows updates have been installed. If it appears just remove that update and Windows will roll back to previous version.

    You could also try to just reinstall the download and see what happens.
