IE8 corrupted on one user account OK on other user accounts

    Dear group,

    I was using IE8.0.x on Windows XP and I got a message asking me to
    download IE optimized for Yahoo. At that time I was using the account
    as a limited user. Thus the installation started, but could not
    finish the installation. In between it asked me to log on as an
    administrator.

    By the time I could log on and reinstall the IE the damaged was done,
    the IE got corrupted. The new pages come very small centered in the
    middle of the browser.

    I was able to install the optimized version for Yahoo as an
    administrator. The IE is working find for other user accounts, admin
    accounts and there is no problem.

    However for the vnagrik (only one single account, for which the
    installation finished in the middle), it is corrupted.

    Please tell me how to repair this corrupted IE with the help of other
    non-corrupted IEs.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Try CTRL+0 [zero on numeric keypad] before doing anything else.

    If the IE window is (too) small...

    Close all but one (1) of these smaller windows. "Grab" the corners of the
    remaining window with your cursor and "stretch" it to the desired size but
    do NOT maximize it! Now close the resized window.

    The resized window MUST be the last window closed in order for its size to
    be remembered.

    Or you can install IE New Window Maximizer and forget about it!
