    My Internet Explorer program has become corrupted; I need to acquire another,
    and was hoping to install IE 8. I have Windows XP. I know I have to delete
    the currently-installed IE, but after that, I'm lost. What do I need to do?
    Please assume that this is the second time I sat down in front of a computer.

    Explain.

    Are you running WinXP SP2 or SP3?

    Open IE Help | About: What version is displayed here (e.g., v7.0.1234.56)?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?
