IE8 installer starts automatically. IE8 is already installed.
I tried to help a neighbor who had filled up the hard drive on her
2002 HP computer. I uninstalled Arcsoft, which freed up 500MB.

But during startup an IE8 install wizard starts automatically -- which
I cancel. When I load IE to access the Internet, [help][about]
indicates the current version is already IE8. Should I let the
automatic installer continue?

Does the attempt of IE8 installer to run automatically mean their is a
problem?

Advice will be appreciated,
Stan Hilliard

You may be confusing the IE8 "RunOnce" or "Welcome screen" with an attempt
to (re)install IE8, Stan. See
http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/di...nce-all-users/.

This phenomenon is usually associated with having failed to disabled all
realtime protections (i.e., anti-virus; anti-spyware; third-party firewall)
prior to installing IE8.
