    No-charge support for Internet Explorer 8 installation, set-up and usage
    (only) is available via telephone (based on your locale) and has been
    extended until 02 July 2010. Customers must be running Windows XP or Windows
    Vista in a non-domain environment.

    => US & CA Residents: 1-866-234-6020
    => Other locales:
    https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?&prid=13043

    My personal recommendations include:

    => Install IE8 manually, not via Windows Update/Automatic Updates!! =>
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

    NB WinXP users: Save the installer to your desktop, do not Run it. When
    you're prepared to install IE8, double-click on the saved file.

    NB Vista users: Save the installer to your desktop, do not Run it. When
    you're prepared to install IE8, right-click on the saved file and select Run
    as Administator.

    => Uninstall all third-party toolbars (e.g., Google; Yahoo; Windows Live)
    and third-party Windows Themes before installing IE8.

    => Close all open applications (i.e., anything with a taskbar icon) before
    installing or uninstalling IE8.

    => I would strongly recommend disabling your anti-virus application and any
    anti-spyware application's "system protections" (other than Defender's)
    before installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade. If you're running a
    third-party firewall, I would recommend disabling it and then enabling the
    Windows Firewall before installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade.

    => Create a Restore Point manually before installing IE8. [Do NOT use
    System Restore to remove/uninstall IE8; instead, see
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700. Then use the Restore Point prior to
    reinstalling IE8 per these recommendations. Norton users will need to see
    http://bertk.mvps.org/html/symantecdoc1.html.]

    NB WinXP users=> Reboot twice after installing or uninstalling IE8, then go
    to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com | Select CUSTOM and scan | Install any
    Critical Security Updates offered (i.e., KB978207). If a Root Certificates
    update is listed in the Optional Updates category, install it to take full
    advantage of IE's enhanced security.

    NB Vista users=> Reboot twice after installing or uninstalling IE8, then
    check-in at Windows Update and install any critical security updates
    offered.

    => For best chance of success with IE8, make certain that your anti-virus
    application version, any anti-spyware applications (other than Defender),
    and your third-party firewall (if any) are supported in IE8 before you
    decide install it.
