    I am having fits with the operation of IE8 after an upgrade from XP Pro to W7
    Ultimate on my computer. I had been using IE8 on the same machine with XP Pro
    with no issues. I would like to rerun or reload with a repair options but can
    seem to find if it's possible. The browser refused to open links if they open
    in a new page. Pop up blocker is of and defaults have been reset. I have run
    it without add ins and get the same result.

    Thanks

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    The above notwithstanding...

    Tip: The file named ie8-rereg.all.zip contains all three (3) scripts below.

    If you have a Win7 32-bit computer:

    • Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
    taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.cmd & reboot.

    If you have a Win7 64-bit computer:

    • Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
    taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.32on64.cmd to correct the
    problem in IE8 32-bit & reboot.

    • Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the
    taskbar) then Run the script named ie8-rereg.64on64.cmd to correct the
    problem in IE8 64-bit & reboot.

    After working with tech support the problem was solved. He reloaded the DLL
    files in the registry and everything is normal again. Apparently corrupted
    during the install. The whole process took about 2 hours of phone time but at
    least the computer and IE are functional again.
