|IE8 won't speed anything up on Dialup. IMHO IE8 behaves like Malware. Hijacks everything to MSN. I uninstalled it after 2 hrs of Using HijackThis to get MY settings restored. Home Page, search, everthing hijacked to MSN. Even my eMail was Hijacked to an old unused Yahoo Account. |
Got no warnings, no choice to keep my old settings, no offer to easily restore what I had. Only good thing was that on uninstall everthing reverted back to IE6SP1 with no problems.
Had the same thing happen on a friends HP 7020 XP MCE with Comcast high speed. HJT saved the day.
Yes I bought the IE8 CD.
Get a friend to order the SP3 CD for you. I think SP3 was a good investment, performance wise.
There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.
