Hello, friends! I'm having a real problem. My IE8 is corrupted somehow. When I hit links in my Outlook e-mail, IE8 comes up with a warning blivit which says that my browser search engine is corrupt and I have to click that off, then click off the next window which offers several search engine options. Even does this when I just open IE8. This is a real pain, because I use Firefox as my default browser anyway.
So, I want to remove my IE8 and re-install it to clean things up. HOWEVER, if I go to Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs, and click on IE8, there's NO remove or change option at all. So, something's corrupt all right. IE8 Help tells me to go to Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs...No help there.
Do I have to go the Regedit and delete all references and tags for Internet Explorer?? Maybe that's the only way? Or, is there a 3rd Party Software Removal app someone can recommend?
