    Internet Explorer updated on computer to version 8. I am running windows7 on
    the computer and the problem is when I hit the icon nothing opens. The icon
    will appear in the task bar and task manager will show the IE8 is running but
    no page appears. I have reloaded windows 7 several times and the problems
    continutes. I suggestions??

    go into the control panel and uninstall IE8

    Try running IE8 in no add-ons mode, this will detewrmin if an add-on is
    interfering with IE8. Right-click IE icon and select (No Add-ons). If IE8 now
    works you can disable add-ons under [Tools]>[Manage Add-ons] then re-enable them
    until the problem returns, you have then found the culprit. Remove or update
    that add-on. HINT: Toolbar add-ons are a common source of problems.

    Windows 7 _comes_ with IE8 so it could not have updated to version 8. You may
    have installed an update _for_ IE8.
    Check in Add and Remove programs for recent updates, you may need to check the
    box "[X]Show Updates" to see them. The most recent on my system is KB978506, I
    have Windows XP but the updates for IE8 should be the same number. Un-install
    that update to see if it was the cause.
