How do I re-run the IE8 post-install setup wizard?
Hello
I want to double-check and possibly change the general settings that are
applied during the post-installation of IE8 (where one is given the option to
do things like turn off suggested site etc). I've tried uninstalling IE8,
rebooting, and reinstalling, but still the wizard won't appear once the
install / reboot has been done. I see from Googling and Binging the 'net
that a few other people want to know the same thing. Surely there must be
some command-line-like switch that IE8 can be run with that will force the
wizard to re-appear?
I phoned Microsoft support, but they were no help.
Please help!

You can reset the settings by going to Tools/Options/Advanced. Try that.

You don't need to run the wizard, just go to Tools|Internet Options|Advanced
and all the same settings are contained there. Otherwise they can be set in
the individual security zones under "Custom" settings.
