    Lately I've been getting failures where IE8 shut down or I get a message
    saying there's a problem. I downloaded IE8 to re-insatll but a message says
    I have a later version already installed. (I'm running Vista Home
    EditionVersion 6 Build 6002 and IE8Version 8.0.6001.18882) How do I get rid
    of the failures? How do I re-install IE8?

    See what happens when you run IE8 in its no add-ons mode.

    Since we're not mind readers you'll have to describe your "failures" in
    detail, with examples, if you want specific help.

    For now:

    Do you have the same experience when you start Internet Explorer from
    the 'no add-ons' icon?

    Start > type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box > click Internet
    Explorer (No Add-Ons)

    Do you have the same experience after you have reset Internet Explorer
    settings?

    I gave up. I set et windows update so I can manually delete the IE update,
    but can still install all the others. When Windows update was set to
    automatic, my system constantly froze up. Now I use Opera or Firefox. One
    or the other will get me everywhere I want to go. And the freezes have
    stopped.
