DO IE 8 AND IE 7 PLAY WELL TOGETHER AFTER UPGRADE TO IE8?
I would like to upgrade to IE 8, but am worried that it will somehow corrupt
my current version of IE 7 and cause me to have two browsers in competition
with each other.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Re: DO IE 8 AND IE 7 PLAY WELL TOGETHER AFTER UPGRADE TO IE8?
When you upgrade IE 7 to IE 8 correctly you suffer no corruption
whatsoever. Moreover, IE 8 replaces IE 7, so you will not have 'two
browsers in competition with each other'.

Follow these steps (most of which are standard procedure when upgrading
an operating system):

These directions apply to Windows XP. I don't have Vista -- the steps
might be slightly different if you do.

1- Read about the new features of IE 8 on Microsoft's website (and
elsewhere on the web).
2- Read the IE 8 Release Notes.
3- Make sure your computer is 100% free of malware.
4- Make sure your computer is otherwise problem-free. Upgrading to IE 8
is not a fix for problems you are currently experiencing.
5- Make sure all your software (including Windows itself) and drivers
are up to date.
6- Make sure all your security software, as well as any other software
you frequently use and websites you frequently visit, are compatible
with IE 8.
7- Backup your personal files (documents, photos, spreadsheets, etc.) as
well as your e-mail, address book and Favorites; and create a restore
point. (If you're familiar with disk imaging, backup your hard drive.)
8- You may need to uninstall third-party toolbars from your current
version of Internet Explorer; or reset Internet Explorer to default
settings. When you reset Internet Explorer settings, all add-ons and
customizations are deleted, and you basically start with a fresh version
of Internet Explorer.
9- Download the IE 8 installer from the Microsoft website.
10- Close all open applications, i.e., applications with an icon on the
Taskbar.
11- Disable your security software. Turn on Windows Firewall.
12- During IE 8 installation, agree to "Install updates."
13- Reboot /twice/ after installing IE 8.
14- Turn off Windows Firewall. Re-enable your security software.
