: I would strongly recommend disabling your anti-virus application and any
: anti-spyware applications (other than Defender) before installing (or
: uninstalling) an IE upgrade. If you're running a third-party firewall, I
: would recommend disabling it and then enabling the Windows Firewall before
: installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade.
: Tip: Reboot twice after installing (or uninstalling) IE8 Final then
: at Windows Update & install any critical security updates offered. If a
: Root Certificates update is offered in Option Software category, install
: to take full advantage of IE8's enhanced security.
: Tip: Make certain that your anti-virus application, any anti-spyware
: applications (other than Defender), and your third-party firewall (if any)
