    Tried to install IE8 fro my DELL 9100 xp multimedia.
    Installation appeard ok, system rebooted automatically, but left with
    error/busy box
    "personalized setting being deleted for IE8 installation", or somehting
    close to that. Box just sits, CTL ALT DEL shows process has stopped. Del
    process and have only screen background, no icons, no mouse or keyboard
    activity? Have rebooted many times with wsame result.

    Note: Have other user on same box, other user opens ok.

    Corrupt profile???, best way to recover without losing all other settings ???

    thanks in advnace

    System restore.
    Re-install IE7 to fix any lingering issues.
    Stay with IE7 until you have cleaned up your system a little. ;-)
