IE 8 and Yahoo Bookmarks

by jbnicely - 5/9/09 5:55 AM

Altho I've had a pc for a while, I am very pc iliterate.
I have an XP emachine and at the top it says "Windows
Internet Explorer provided by Yahoo"

Yahoo recently suggested I update to IE 8 which I did.
But with IE 8 my Yahoo Bookmarks can't be added.

I'm not sure how this next part happened (pc iliterate=me)
but I removed the IE 8 by doing system restore, wanting to go back to what I had,
which I think was IE 7.

When I did this, I couldn't get online. So I undid my system restore so I could use
IE 8 to get online to try to change back to IE 7.

When I tried to download IE7 a message came up saying I can't
do that because I have ?? not sure exactly what it said,
but something to the effect that there was one already there.

I deleted IE8 again and had all the same results.

Does anyone know a way I can do this?
Also, am I allowed to have a second browser on
my Start menu so I can get online after deleting
IE 8?

Maybe this is very simple but I just don't know how
or maybe it's impossible and I'm stuck not being
able to use Yahoo Bookmarks which I really like.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
