Have you tried to remove the IE8 update and reinstall it.
Also for those pages that require IE you could use Firefox with IE Tab or do this in Chrome:

Everday Language Hi everyone,
I just figured it out by putting
together the various instructions.
Here are instructions in everyday
Go to http://www.meadroid.com/neptune/ and
click D-LOAD to install the software.
After it is done installing, open the folder C:\Program Files\MeadCo
Neptune. You will see a file called
Right-click and copy npmeadax.dll.
Open the following folder (enter your Windows username where it says
In XP -- C:\Documents and Settings[$username]\Local
In Vista -- C:\Users[$username]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User
Paste npmeadax.dll into this folder.
Click Start --> Run.
Type cmd and press enter. A black and white window will pop up with C:>
and a blinking cursor.
Type the following command starting with cd and including the quotation
marks and press enter (enter your
Windows username where it says
In XP -- cd "C:\Documents and Settings[$username]\Local
In Vista -- cd "C:\Users[$username]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User
If you do it currectly then that long
string of the folder path will appear
in front of the > character next to
the blinking cursor.
Type dir and press enter.
You should see npmeadax.dll in the list on the right (probably listed
under Google Gears). If you don't see
it, then you didn't copy it correctly.
Go back and copy it again.
Type regsvr32 npmeadax.dll and press enter.
You should receive a message saying that it was successful. Click
Go into Google Chrome.
Turn on the bookmark bar by typing CTRL+B while in Google Chrome (if it's
not on already).
Create a bookmarklet by dragging the text in the box below to the
lh=location.href; if( !lh ||
- using Internet Explorer rendering</title></head>var script =
var embed = \'</embed>\';
The default name will be "Untitled"
but you probably want to rename it
something like "IE Tab."
- Go to a website that only works with IE, click your IE Tab button, and
try it out!
Hope this helps!

Join Date: Apr 2009 Posts: 1 Unhappy i rewrote the script to act as
a render switch button if anyone
if you want it readable: Code:
var lh = location.href;
if (document.getElementById("_nept") !==
location = location;
var embed = '',
html = '' + document.title + ' - using Internet
Explorer rendering' +
embed + '';
} } )();
compressed for usage: Code:
- using Internet Explorer rendering'+embed+'';document.write(html);}})();
click once to switch to IE render,
click another time to go back to
chrome. It just does a page reload, so
you will lose any form info between
switches. also Ctrl+T doesnt work when
in IE mode.
i'd like to point out that the plugin
is wierd. I expected it to use the IE
that i have installed on the system,
however this is not the case. they
have a version of IE embedded in the
dll file and the rendering is not like
any version of IE...not 6, not 7, not
8. checked via Acid2 and Acid3. they must be embedding/using some different
version of Microsoft Webbrowser
Control. so this pretty much fails if
you want to use it to stay out of IE
for checking CSS issues within chrome
hope this helps someone, Leon Last
