Hi.  Perhaps this is posted elsewhere but I cannot find it.


I am running xp professional on a Dell Vostro 1510 and while IE8 was working just fine for some silly reason I redownloaded it because I kept getting these annoying windows about secure pages.  And it won't open at all.


Anyway, I tried to delete IE 8 and reload it again and now nothing works at all.  It won't open at all and I cannot delete the old version.  I get messages about some aspect of it that needs to be 'saved'.  clueless as to what that means.


I rather need it for aspects of the intranet for my business otherwise I wouldn't bother.


Am happy to provide any extra information required to fix this.


Thanks in advance.

Did you try using the Add or Remove Programs in removing IE8? You can also use this http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html Let's see if there is a 'saved' particular message by running this -


Download MiniToolBox and run the program. Select
List Last 10 Event Viewers, List Installed Programs and List Users, Partitions and Memory Size then click Go.
A notepad will open then copy-paste the report on your next reply.
