by Darrell / September 6, 2010 4:31 AM PDT

IE8optimized, and bet the same with IE7. I have IE6 SP3 and was wondering what will the complications for FF4.0 Beta - will I be able to get MS updates? These are the following items I have: 1]Office Pro 2003, Do you keep IE6 checked. I have Windows Live & Live Email; Nero 6.6, WinZip14.5 Pro, SAS, MBAM, Spybot S&D, Comodo (antivirus & firewall). Adobe Reader 9.3.4,jre6u21, Open Office 3.2, ccleaner & defraggler, Kindle for PC, Free PDF to Word Converter, RES sounds, Secunia PSI & HP PSC F4135. I do need msn.com in the address, can firfox put in theres afterward? And there is the matter of Favorites to bookmarks. That is about all I can think of for now. Darrell

When I tried to d/l IE8Optimized from MSN..

had tried both IE7 & 8 and there was a tan error at the left bottom corner of the page, I tried to install 8 about 5 times and 7 at least 3 times and had not be able to log in into CNET all the times. Wot showed it was a poor site and blocked the download with a warning page. I had seen that from other nontrusted sites. That is why I need to get an updated browser since I seen warnings that IE6SP3 was an older browser but I could access them by clicking on the link to use them. Darrell

disable the real-time protection by Spybot-S&D such as immunizer, hosts file. If you are using another hosts file, try to disable it as well.

See if the error on the page will continue to appear.
