IE8.0 installation issue

    (1) I have seperate copies of IE8.0 and Microsoft Malicious software removal
    tool. When installing IE8.0 the installation is again prompting to download
    Microsoft Malicious software removal tool, a copy of which anyway I already
    have. Is there any way to point out the IE 8.0 installation to Microsoft
    Malicious software removal tool path.

    (2) I already use IE6.0 windows xp sp2 version. Is there any performance
    criteria for me to choose IE8.0 over IE6.0?

    Hope to get your replies and Thanking you,

    Yours sincerely,
    R. GANESAN.

    If youre installing IE8 correctly & the right version for XP,then IE8
    actually
    will not install till it runs the malicious software removal tool..Actually
    it
    shouldnt even ask,it runs it auto before the install..Try installing from
    microsoft update.

    Is there any particular reason you didn't read the explanation
    offered by the Windows Update site?

    If that wasn't enough of an explanation for you, you need to read
    the KB Article that describes the use of this tool. The MRT is updated
    the second Tuesday of each month, appears as a "Critical Update" on the
    Windows Update site, and runs only when and as "downloaded." Nothing is
    actually installed on your computer; there's nothing to run at a later
    date; there's nothing to ever uninstall.

    Performance criteria? No, not per se. However, IE6 is severely
    hampered by security issues and with every new day there are fewer and
    fewer websites that fully support it. You should, at the very least,
    upgrade to IE7.

    A1. 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

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

    => 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.

    => 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.

    A2. One of the key benefits of install IE8 is its enhanced security. That
    being said:

    => About IE7 & IE8 and Windows XP Service Pack 3
    http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2008/05/05/ie-and-xpsp3.aspx

    => Extended Support for WinXP SP2 ends on 10 July 2010. After that date,
    computers running WinXP SP2 will NOT be offered any further critical
    security updates, Automatic Updates will not work, and Windows Update
    website will not be accessible until SP3 is installed.

    Which commonly used websites don't work anymore on IE6 now that you're aware
    of? (just curious).

    Well, let's start with Google and YouTube, for two widely used sites,
    and go on from there, shall we:

    I'm still using IE6 (and actually prefer it over IE7 and IE8), and have no
    problems with either the Google search site or with the YouTube site
    (although that latter site gives a warning message about having an
    out-of-date browser)

    > http://www.bing.com/search?q=end+of+support+for+IE6&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IE8SRC


    Last time I tried the Bing site (or the Yahoo site) I didn't have an issue
    with IE6 (meaning I was able to use searches on their sites, etc). Now
    whether or not the sites below give some warnings about things to come is
    another matter. That doesn't mean the sites don't work with IE6!

    Well then continue using whatever you prefer. M$ cannot force you to
    change your habits. Some of us have to do meaningful work on our system
    so we need latest technology. what I don't do, however, is to update my
    system with M$ patches with post SP3 updates and hotfixes. I find them
    completely useless. If SP4 comes out (I doubt very much though) then I
    shall consider it not otherwise.

    ear Sirs,

    I thank all of you for your replies.

    Yes, I got it wrongly. It seems IE8.0 download is bundled with microsoft
    malicious software removal tool, which will scan the PC for malicious
    softwares before installing IE8.0.

    The problem was that an update kB932823 was needed for IE8.0 for its
    installation for which reason it was not installing. The IE8.0 installation
    was not notifying this when I tried to install it offline. (I use a slow
    dial-up connection for that matter that is why I am wary of downloading
    larger size downloads).

    Thanking you all once again,

    Yours sincerely,
    R. Ganesan.
