The problem with that is that we can't download. I even tried the Open instead of Save but that didn't work either.

**edit**
And I just checked and Internet Explorer 8 is not in the Uninstall Programs List. This is fu.

in programs and features you must go to 'turn windows fetaures on or off' (it's on the left) and IE is under there

And I just tried to call Microsoft but they can't help me because there is no phone support for people using Windows 7 and the Internet Explorer 8 people only deal wiht XP and Vista. I love Micro$oft.

You could download using another computer.

At this point, as painful as it probably is, I'd try a clean install of the OS and see if that corrects it.
