Should IE7 be uninstalledl before DL'ing and installing IE8? Going through google on this subject there are articles on problems with IE8, but there are offered recommended fixes. Just to be safe, I thought I would also ask if DL'ing IE8 would cause a problem with IE7 installed. Walt

Reload-Drivers-Updates including IE8 (I install IE8 then the browser choice)

The Browser choice is annoying but gives a kinda back up in case IEx fails.

My old XP discs had IE7 streamed, IE8 Cannot (I think!!!) so I went back to IE6 for my builds, and manually install IE8

No, just install IE8, after which it will become the default IE browser. Note that the IE7 files will remain on the system (even though you won't be able to run it) just in case you want to uninstall IE8 and revert back to IE7. Scott.
