IE8 problem
« on: October 11, 2008, 05:35:23 PM »
after upgrading from IE7 to IE8, the OE shortcut in the IE toolbar stop working.
The program itself still works. When I run ..\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe, OE opens with no problem.
How can I fix this problem in IE8?

Thanks in advance  :)

I would try to uninstall this update in your ADD-REMOVE PROGRAM if you still can. This is worst than virus. Me, I can't roll back to IE7 and I don't know if I'll ever succeed in installing next IE8 final release. You shouldn't install Microsoft beta releases, they aren't supported by them. :'(

Yes, I just reinstalled Winows Vista. Back to good old IE7!!! Hard time with SP1, I think Comodo software conflicts. I had a bad time here! 8)

Uninstall Comodo. Use Windows Vista firewall meanwhile.

PCTools Firewall Plus also works well on Vista.  :)

I'm still running with preinstalled  Norton Security Suite and all my Vista updates are installing a charm. Comodo Firewall has too much strenght, it goes against Windows Update >:(

No probs here with Comodo firewall & Windows Updates.

U either must have blocked\tweaked somethin, try settin D+ into install mode before goin to WU.

Readin the extensive file will also help.

That's basic, I tried it in install mode, it's rather the D+ mode that even OFF is still on the background. In my case, even uninstalling Comodo and installing PCTools Firewall + didn't help. Using registry cleaners can only mess more the mix. No, the solution for me was a fresh install avoiding Comodo and antispyware installations for the moment being (though unpleasant feeling somewhat "at risk") ::)
