    Use this Microsoft Fix it automated soltion to remove IE8 if you need to. But if you are only having problems with certain Web sites, you might want to try Compatibility View first. Resetting Internet Explorer can also solve some problems and avoid uninstalling

    Is there an easy way to view the results?  When I open the XML file it opens in IE, and appears to have formatting instructions in the code but simply shows raw XML code.
