i have a new used acer aspire laptop running xp. i have a couple of issues. (1) i can open ie8 fine first time but when i re-open ie8 2nd time, the www. is greyed out and only google is in black. this is annoying and im looking for a solution. Any ideas? (2) I upgraded 24 hours ago to ie8 from ie 7 or the previous browser. If i go to add/remove programs and "uninstall" internet explorer, what will happen after the uninstall? will i have a browser for the web or what choices will i be given - im only looking to do this to solve this issue (3) my laptop is running slower after 24 hours of use - i've tried restore to May 6 but its not allowing me - any ideas to speed it up?
Many thanks - hope you can help
p.s. i should mention that www is greyed out on the 1st successful session though
