Re: installing the new ie8 while having ie8 RC1
i went directly to microsoft and found something i had never seen before
called fix it. it has 2 options. 1 is let microsoft fix it or fix it
yourself. i chose microsoft fix it. the bottom line was does not apply which
meant not removed. so i saw an option to download ie8 so i tried it and it
worked. just to maketo make sure when i opened ie 8 for version info and RC1
was gone. i was unable to remove RC1. it just was not there to remove and it
doesn't matter because i got the update.
