    Don't know what happened for sure.I downloaded IE8, and now I am missing my internet options in the control panel, I can't right click anything, Can't download anything, if i try to use the internet logo on the bottom of the page the internet encounters an error and has to close, am even missing the portion that has -File-Edit-View-Help.etc. I am also missing my favorites, the button is there but nothing happens when i click on it. I have tried Spybot,Avast antivirus, and malwarebytes anti malware, and system mechanic. I also tried all the stuff you have posted on your site that i could find or thought was relevant. Nothing seems to help. If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful. The only place i can download from is Windows update,and thats only when they are updates found by windows or microsoft . Please Help Am using XP SP3 on AMD Sempron Asus motherboard.
