Remove IE8 and restart twice.
How do I uninstall or remove Internet Explorer 8?
You can hide IE8 from your updates and stay with IE7, or continue on in this
Download IE8 to your Desktop. Do not use Windows or Microsoft Updates.
Internet Explorer 8 download:
Restart your computer. With no other programs running, disable your
anti-virus program and any spyware or spam programs you may have. If you are
running a third party firewall, disable it and enable the Windows firewall.
Now install IE8 from the Desktop. When you're done, restart your computer
twice and then make sure your disabled programs are running again.
