    You will have to ensure one thing is that Internet Explorer 8 will not work on Windows 7 operating system. This why due to the design of the browser. Microsoft will soon provide a update for Internet Explorer 8 to make things right in Windows 7. Anyhow keep your Automatic Updates on and wait for the same. The best thing you can try is use Internet Explorer 7 in place of IE8 till you get the update. The you can directly upgrade Internet Explore 7 to 8 from the help option.

    IE8 is equipped with tons of new features and services. The release candidate of Internet Explorer 8 comes with Windows 7. The new browser has new rendering engine that supports CSS 2.1 with a awesome address bar. IE8 is still under construction so it is obvious that users can face out many compatibility problems with it. IE8 offers safe browsing with some addon features like InPrivate Browsing and Filtering modes. Microsoft has provided a free software which is used to fix the problems in IE8. Try the below tool.
