Re: Should I Upgrade to IE8?

Nissi,

IE8 should be listed in add/remove, under the W's,  as WINDOWS Internet Explorer 8.

You said IE"7" stopped working 4 times... I'm supposing you meant IE8.   There may be "simple" solutions that you might want to try/consider first, before uninstalling... for example, in my case --- through trial-and-error --- i found that disabling the google-toolbar-related add-ons made IE8 more stable.

Free Internet Security - WOT Web of Trust       Use OpenDNS       MalwareBytes Anti-Malware


Windows 10 Pro (64-bit), Panda DOME 18.7.4, MBAM3 Pro, Windows Firewall, OpenDNS Family Shield, SpywareBlaster, MVPS HOSTS file, MBAE Premium, MCShield, WinPatrol PLUS, SAS (on-demand scanner), Zemana AntiLogger Free, Microsoft EDGE, Firefox, Pale Moon, uBlock Origin, CryptoPrevent.


[I believe computer-users who sandbox (Sandboxie) are acting prudently.]

Re: Should I Upgrade to IE8?

Hello Ky331,

Thank you for the information.

Yes, I meant IE8.  I have discovered IE8 stops working whenever I initially click a link or shortcut.  After II close IE8 and click the same link or shortcut again, then IE8 takes me to the proper destination. 

The only toolbar I have added to IE is Site Advisor.  However, after searching the add-ons, I noticed IE8 has added quite a few new add-ons.  I will disable those I do not need and see what happens.  But I still dislike IE8's appearance!:emotion-2:

I checked the add/remove, IE8 was not listed.

Re: Should I Upgrade to IE8?

Hello,

I installed the IE8 the day after the release.

My experience is very good. No lock ups. Lightening speed. Better than IE7.

I also tried to connect to a site described by Ky331 under Virus discussion,within a second of clicking my browser turned Red and blocked the site.

I am indeed happy.:emotion-2::emotion-2:

To remove IE8, navigate to  Control panel...Programs and Features..on the left hand side of next window find "View installed updates". You will see IE 8 in installed updates. Simply click "remove".

I, too, do not have any add-ons, accelerators, etc installed with IE 8.

Re: Should I Upgrade to IE8?

Good afternoon,

Thank you all for your support.  It reminds me of the "good 'ole days" back at the Old Dell forum.  However, navigating this site is another matter, especially if you do not own a widescreen monitor.

I finally had to restore to revert back to IE7.  It was not listed as IE8 in installed updates, but rather as Update for Windows, which at the time I did not recognize as IE8 (I checked its details today). 

I hope to install it again in the future, but for now I will stick with IE7.


Continued blessings,

Nissi1

Re: Should I Upgrade to IE8?

Seems to be working well with vista sp1. Vista sp2 final should be out soon? I do miss the old forums, although this one is growing on me it doesn't feel as good as the old one.

SP2?  I am still trying to deal with IE8 and the new and improved Windows Live Mail! It appears every time Microsoft adds something new, something old is strangely affected.:emotion-9:

Hello natakuc4,

I have yet to reinstall IE8.  I am not sure if I just do not want to deal with the aggravation or IE7 is like my old favorite robe; comfortable and still gets the job done. 

Regarding this new forum, I thank God some of the members from the original community are still around.

Have a blessed weekend,

Nissi1

Re: Should I Upgrade to IE8?

I downloaded I.E 8 yesterday and I have had numerous problems. Some of these are incompatible add-ons,  failure to print webpages, failure to open email attachments, failure to open the Internet Options window in the Control panel. Restoring to I.E 7 did not totally resolve the problems.
