    "do NOT install! do NUT use!"

    September 5, 2009  |   By thePinkieCycle

    Pros

    you have got to be kidding, freezes, slow AND deletes previous version so you can NOT uninstall without major work....

    Benn using computers since 1969.... really this is the worse YET!

    Cons

    NO ZIP NADA Benefits..... Fair Warning........ DO NOT INSTALL,

    DO NOT USE

    Summary

    SLOW to the extreme, FREEZES, AND VERY Hard to Remove.....

    Microsoft needs to revamp to become more lean and simple with their programs...
    Decades of monoply is really making them top heavy.

    HAHAHA !!! 1969 ???? First PC came in the early 70's. Internet came in the late 80's. How did you get a PC in 1969 with IE in it. I am just curious.

    I've never had a problem with IE8 or any other Internet Explorer. From what I read here, it won't run very well on a 1969 model computer (I didn't know that there were any 1969 model computers) but I wouldn't consider that to be a fault.
