Welcome to TSG forums.
First, I would try to download it again, saving it to a folder, then when off line install it from there and see if it works this way.
Post back and let us know how it works for you (or not)

after reading the resolution im hesitant to go that route, i do not get the message when starting the computer, in fact it operates just fine, only when attempting to download Internet Explorer 8.0 do i get the message.

There's no reason not to try it, but if you're reluctant, go here:

entry point
I have the exact same problem as scarr0827 but have other problems as well. My computer has IE6 SP1, running Windows 2000 SP4. The computer has an Intel Pentium 4 with a CPU 1500 MHz, AT/AT Compatible with 392,668 KB RAM.Do I need to update drivers before trying to go from IE 6 to IE 8? I'm wondering about that since I try to do the DriverScan an absolutely nothing happens. What's up with that.I havenít seen the two documents you provided links to but will read them. Thanks.

After doing some checking on the MS site I think the 'problem' is that IE 8 is not supported for Win 2000. I think it has to be XP or Vista or the new Win 7.

I would just reinstall IE7 for now. If you want to upgrade your OS, if your computer has the memory, drive, etc. you could go to XP, However, that will be supported only a few more years, can't remember the year support is to stop.

It looks like MS wants everyone to download IE8. Everytime I try to download IE7 I'm bounced to IE8. Any suggestions.

I obtained a copy of XP professional and read through the documentation that came with it. After doing that I got reluctant to start because it kept mentioning information you have to have at different points of the install. I thought what if I couldnít get the info what happens to the install at that point.

Iím reminded of what happened two months ago while using recovery disks in hopes of restoring a Sony Vaio. I had two recovery disks and found out the process called for THREE disks. Since I didnít have the third disk I cranked up this old computer Iíve been writing about in hopes of downloading the third disk from the Sony site only to look over at the Vaio to see the screen had gone completely blank. And blank it stayed and is today!

I need to think about this some more Ė anyway, thanks for all the suggestions.
