Upgrade to Version 8
I currently have Version 6 Internet Explorer (Update versions SP2; if that's
helpful). Can I upgrade to 8 with the free download? I tried, got through
steps 1 and 2, but then nothing. I can't get to step 3, which is the setup
wizard.

Thanks.

As a precaution do a complete scan of your system for malare..

If that's OK

try IE7 or perhaps an alternative such as Firefox

Re: Upgrade to Version 8
Unfortunately, you did not explain what step 1, step 2 and step 3 are.

If your computer meets the system requirements for Internet Explorer 8...
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/int...uirements.aspx
....you will be able to upgrade your operating system to IE 8. Follow
these suggestions - most of which are standard procedure when upgrading
an operating system - and you are virtually assured of success.

1- Read about the new features of IE 8 on Microsoft's website (and
elsewhere on the web).
2- Read the 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.

Enjoy IE 8!
