Well, I have added SP3 to XP Professional and also ran a registry scan. Downloaded I.E. 8.0 again and it still won't startup. I goes thru the download process fine and I restart but nothing happens when I click on the I.E. icon. If I remove I.E. 8.0, I.E. 6.0 runs fine.
I just downloaded I.E. 7.0 to see if it made a difference. At least 7.0 installed and opened but it did not connect to the internet. Outlook connects fine. Another problem is that when I tried to remove 7.0 at the control panel, I.E. 7.0 was listed but there was no remove option. I had to do a system restore. Any suggestions or at least a method to remove 7.0 when something like this happens. I guess I am destined for I.E. 6.0
