Hello! When I open IE8, I get a blivit screen which tells me that my IE8 has been corrupted by another program on my PC, causing the search engine to be damaged, and the default engine (LiveSearch - search.live.com) has been activated. I click OK, then a search engine listing shows up. Happens every time I run IE8, and I have to click it out of the way before I can do ANYTHING in IE8. Very annoying.

What's worse, I cannot uninstall IE8 and even when I try to re-install it, I get a blivit screen which tells me that even the IE8 installer engine cannot uninstall the version I'm running right now.

I don't know what's wrong. I'm running a good virus/spyware scanner and there's no junk on my PC anywhere.

Can someone help me with this problem, please??
