Ugh, no luck. I think I'm going to do a Windows repair install. How much disk space do you guys recommend for the primary partition for Windows Seven?

For bare minimum, I would go with 80 GB. If you plan on installing a lot, then the more the better.

Same Issue - IE8 will not execute

I am experiencing the same issue. I was working fine on another PC running 32 bit Windows 7 and IE8 and then I switched to a new laptop running 64 bit Windows 7 and IE8 and it was working at first as well. Then for some unknown reason executing IE 32 bit or IE 64 bit the icon flashes, the process appears for a split second and then terminates. I have disabled and re-enabled IE from Control Panel with no luck.

Strangely enough, it has started up in 32 bit twice now, about 4 hours apart, but if I close the application window it will revert back to not executing. If I click on a URL from say an email it will still not execute, and if I try to enter an html address in Explorer it says it cannot pass that parameter on to the desired application. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello STK, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It may be from a bad add-on. You might see if resetting IE8 may help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

To add-on to what Brink said, the similar issue happened to my friend running Windows 7 Build 7100 (x64).

It was a bad core-file in Internet Explorer, you could try typing in start: Turn Windows

Then select Turn Windows Features On/Off and uncheck Internet Explorer 8, let it do its thing and restart, then go back to that same thing and check it again to uninstall and reinstall IE8.


If not a simple reinstall could fix it as well.

Thank you all for your assistance, resetting IE8 seems to have done the trick. I can run both my IE8 32 bit and 64 bit apps - I could not run the 64 bit app at all and the 32 bit app only ran twice over 24 hours. All seems to be working well now. Thanks again.

For reference, I just had this exact same issue happen to me when installing IE8 on a clean WinXP-SP2, then SP-3 from IE6. (I'd decided to go back to WinXP because my system is really far too outdated to run anything beyond XP, plus I know it's locked down. I still haven't found all the amazing features available in Win7.)

I'm so glad I had installed Chrome prior to upgrading to IE8 or I'd have been completely stuck. For reference, Resetting doesn't seem to work in my case. I'm going to continue installing all other WindowsUpdates available, restart and see how that works.
