IE 10 Win8 Wiped out HELP!

    IE 10 Win8 Wiped out HELP!

    I started my computer, which I just loaded Win8 Pro on, & it wiped out my Internet Explorer !0.

    Now I can't get onto the Internet to download IE.

    I think this has to do with the EU rule about Web Browsers.

    What do I do now?

    Any Help will be appreciated!

    IE on Win8 Wipeout

    Lou & Behold a window popped up & gave me a choice of what BROWSER to install!

    Luckily when I choose IE it loaded & had all my settings, task bar etc. back.

    It just shows what happens when STUPID governments get involved in our private life!

    Very Frustrated!!

    As I was fuming, a pop up announced that I could choose a browser to download!

    I downloaded IE & all my settings were there!

    You can also fix this by going into the default programs applet in the control panel and setting IE to the default - this causes the icons to pop back up where they would have been otherwise.
