No IE8 in my Windows 7

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Kasi, Feb 1, 2010.

    There is no IE8 in my Windows version. No icon in the taskbar. I have tried
    Start/Search Programs. Nothing.

    Microsoft.com won't let me download the Windows 7 version -- because
    "Windows 7 comes with IE8, so no download is necessary".

    Can anyone tell me where to download it?

    Thank you!!

    I uninstalled mine because it would not open and now as Kasi states, I can't
    find anywhere to install it from.

    Hi,

    As Robear has stated.

    So to turn IE8 back on (I have not done this myself for fear of losing IE8)

    Start>Control Panel Items>Programs and Features
    Click "Turn Windows features on or off"
    check "Internet Explorer 8" from the list...

    (mmm that's going to make life difficult for v9 when/if it comes along)

    Unfortunately a web search does not return any results for instructions for
    turning it back on...

    Post back if that does not turn it back on.

    Regards.

    I've put it back by doing the reverse of before. If I click Start, Internet
    Explorer, the hour glass comes on for a few seconds and then vanishes. IE
    will not open. What about if I just re-insert the disk for IE7 that I got
    from my Computer Manufacturer.

    If you'd bothered to read the dialog box that does NOT uninstall IE. All it
    does is REMOVE ACCESS - i.e. removes all the menu items and icons.
