Repairing or Re-installing IE8 on Windows 7 OS

Internet Explorer 8 is malfuncting on a workstation. I'd like to re-install it.

Is there any way to do this?

it can only be disabled on win7 not actually reinstalled.

try resetting it

if that does not solve the issue remove all toolbars using programs and features in the control panel.

also you might want to remove java and adobe flash ( very quick and easy to reinstall ) and they can bug ie8 at times, and the fix is reinstaling them.

can u not just go to the windows website and download again?

If you have the IE 8 installation file then simply run it to re-install the application other wise download the IE8 from microsoft or download from this site:

IE 8 is a core component of Windows.  I seriously doubt there is any way to "reinstall" it on Windows 7.  You may be able to fix it if you explain the problems you are having.

I will try some of these solutons, basically what is happening is I click links within ie pages and another tab opens, but does not load the page... it hangs there acting like it is doing something with white blank background.. Thanks for all the comments..

suggest you try the following

1. try the reset via internet options
2. check for windows update
3. maybe clean out cache - use ie8 or a useful freebie ccleaner
4. make sure your security tools like spyware and virus checkers are up to date and have been run
