IE8 is dated enough it is considered unsecure. You can find it online via search but MS doesn't support it for later than Vista. I would not go back further than IE9 which is also available online for download.

IE 10 does have a spellchecker.

Seems every time I transpose letters it fixes it. Just happened when I spelled t-a-r-n-s-p-o-s-e)

Hello Clay,

Yep, IE10 has built-in spelling correction.

No other version of internet explorer came with spell checker until ie10,
Any spell checker ie9 or ie8 were third party add-ons which most will still work in ie10 as well,
Which my preference is Google toolbars spell checker it is by far the best I've ever seen in action much more suggestions and no self correcting/ grammar non-sense or being as stuck up as apples spell checker for iphones and ipads...

Are you using "64bit tabs"? I'm not suggesting that you turn on 64bit tabs, I'm just asking if you have them turned on because that matters to the discussion about the toolbar issue you are having. See this tutorial to see if you have 64bit tabs enabled:

Your last post does not answer the question that I asked in my last post... but then again, no one has answered your original question of how to go from IE10 to IE8. We really hate to see you do that - but the answer is in this post.


I suggest that you leave the UAC at the default level or higher.

You might want to watch at 720p and in the full screen mode.

Do you use UAC (User Account Control)?
...or maybe not,
