Microsoft Update recommended updating to IE8 from current version of IE7 and it also recommended a Service Pack2 update. After downloading the updates, I attempted to open IE8 and soon received an Data Execution Prevention message. Since I wasn't able to open IE, I did a system restore and upon rebooting I found that the IE version now available was completely changed. No toolbars, unable to download IE7 or IE8 from Microsoft site, unable to download any malware applications, right-click on mouse or keyboard doesn't work, unable to copy/paste, etc. The IE version is very generic looking with an icon, left/right arrows, address bar, google search bar; no other functions available like favorites, tools, page options, etc.
