Hello people.

I have experienced this after a repair of XP.

I have tried to run an install of IE8 in safe mode but get "program too
big to fit in memory" error.

What files are needed on the install media, I downloaded
ie8-windowsxp-x86-ENU.exe from MS which when run gives the above error.
Can I place files on the USB stick which allows the "install programs "
through Control Panel to run?

Appreciate any replies.
