Finally Upgraded to IE 8 !!!

It's been eons since i wrote for help about updating to IE 8 from IE6 ... (first had to update to SP3 which i did eons ago after working up 'nerve' with help from you all here !!)

                Just a little while ago, bit the bullet - reread your advices and updated IE !!! (was already downloaded into my compter so just had to click ''install' .   IT WORKED!  nothing disappeared - nothing bleeped or belched !!  smoothe !!

                Don't know if it's my 'imagination' but when i click on my 'favorites' getting to those sites seems faster !

                Did all the little 'gymnastics' that made 'me' feel better i.e. defrag/ck-disc, etc.  

                A big 'thank you' for all your help !!

                                Edythe

Check your Tools > Compatibity View Settings and check 'Display all websites in Compatibity View' to take full advantage of IE8 Compatibility Updates

Please confirm that Norton Anti-Phishing is turned ON (main interface > Web Settings > Safe Surfing > Anti-Phishing) and that the IE8 Smart Screen Filter is OFF

Norton Anti-Phishing and IE8 Smart Screen filter both turned on, there is a potential for conflict.

You may also notice a slight degradation in browser speed if both are on.

hi!   thanks so much - also did this !!  i'm still not 'sure' what i'm seeing on IE8 - all so 'new' can't get used to the small 'forward/back arrows all the way at the top 'left' of my screen for the browser and also the microsoft 'live search '  area right next to it seems foreign to me also - is it the same idea as ''google search". 

                 I clicked to 'enable' google-bar and quickly rec'd notice enabling that could 'crash' i.e 8 so i 'disabled' quickly via 'add/manage' ... sheesh - that scared me !    Is it 'safe' to use google search site tho?

               also in Windows Updates there are 'optional' updates (did all the 'mandatory' ones) but i'm not sure if they apply to me ...one in particular is if i'd have Windows 7 (which i don't) I have XP, sp 3 ... 

           Thanks to you all for help!!   Edythe

Hi EDYTHE

 re>  google-bar

Please see > http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968136 

I don't run google toolbar ... so cannot offer if google toolbar has an update to be compatible w IE8

Please see > http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Toolbar/thread?tid=12592f1f73163b59&hl=en

google site or google search engine from IE8 search bar should work....see if Norton SafeWeb renders search rating in google.  I'll assume Norton Toolbar is OK?

re > Win Updates

What is the KB#

Have you run check for Updates @ WinUpdates until no updates available with reboots since you instlalled XP SP3 & IE8

XP3 & IE8 may just need a day/2 to settlle in

Almost forgot ... IE8 > Help offers Help F1 & What's New in IE8 Tutorial

O.K. SO THEY'RE ALL FOR WINDOWS 7 ... THANKS FOR CHECKING ...I WASN'T SHOUTING - I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE MY REPLIES INBETWEEN LINES WERE 'VISIBLE' ... BY THE WAY...(o.k won't 'shout' here - LOL) ..i don't like the layout of IE8 address bar that holds the forward/back round buttons ...they're way too far to the left/top of my screen - inconvenient when i want to use them ... next to t hem is the address area then 'live search' area .. anyway to switch them around so the 'forward/back' buttons are to the top right of my screen? Also - there is no IE 8 'icon' on my desktop - the only one that  has replaced my IE6 big blue 'e' in task bar area is another big blue E with a yellow band circling it ...is that the way it should be?   Thanks again

Bigger OOpppps!

I was just commenting out loud "all optional and all point to Win7"  I did not check...just so odd to see XP sent updates for Win7


The Internet Explorer icon is missing from your desktop

hello - o.k. looked at this page ... what i failed to mention is that i have had a 'shortcut' in place when i upgraded - it was/is in the lower taskbar area - that will launch the new IE8 - i dragged it to my desktop also and it created a shortcut also (showing the same large "E" with the gold band around it and it also launches IE 8 ... i guess that's o.k. ?  thanks
