    Hi my name’s Feran and I’m working with the Internet Explorer Outreach Team to help provide assistance to folks about their Internet Explorer.

    You can manually download IE8 as well if you do not want to wait for the Automatic Update. The final version was released in March and can be downloaded here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx?ocid=ie8_sm_a
