Where Can I get IE 8 to reinstall ?

I had removed ie 8 in an attempt to go back to IE7.

Which of course Win7 can't run.

Then I discovered the world of VM so I can run ie7 on XP in a VM setting.

Now I would like to put IE8 back on but I cant find it at MS.

I tried vista 64bit but it wouldnt install on my win7 64.

Open an elevated command prompt and type sfc /scannow and hit enter, it will do a scan of all your system files and check their integrity, fixing any along the way that it finds corrupt, altered or missing.

If that fails try enabling it again in the turn windows features on/off screen.
