While i was cleaning out my hard drive a few weeks back (using the add or remove programs feature) i used the remove windows componenets feature. Its confusing structure resulted in me uninstalling Internet Explorer. Since version 8 has just recently come out i have to decided to install it HOWEVER everytime im in the middle of the installation it pops up with a message saying that IE was not installed. There is no error code giving me nothing to work with and ive just scanned my pc with Kapresky Antivirus and my system is clean. So why wont it install properly?

If you go into Add/Remove Programs, then Windows Components, you should be able to readd it in there. Be sure to have your XP/Vista CD ready, unless the CD conent has been copied to your hard drive.

After you install it through there, you should be able to install 8 without any issues
