• I would strongly recommend [Temporarily] disabling your anti-virus application and any anti-spyware application's "system protections" (other than Defender's) before installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade. If you're running a third-party firewall, I would recommend [Temporarily] disabling it and then [Temporarily] enabling the Windows Firewall before installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade.

• Create a Restore Point manually before installing IE8.

• Reboot twice after installing or uninstalling IE8.



EDIT: Added [Temporarily] to quote for clarity.
