How to repair IE8 in Win7

This one had two I.T Professionals completely stumped .. Found a users PC with Google maps not displaying .e.g. the page loaded but with no map! We tried running IE with no addons, removing and readding IE8 through Windows features and still it wouldn’t work correctly..


  1. Boot into safe mode
  2. Download the version right for your version of Win7 – to check right click Computer, properties & check System type.
  3. Extract the file and right click and Run as administrator.

We did get an error which I think would not happen if this was ran in Safe mode but it fixed our problem so are happy 🙂

Bye for now!
