    I attempted to install the IE8 update on my vista premium laptop which
    resultd in my computer booting up and shutting down about every 8-10 minutes
    which went on all nigth long. I finally intervened the next morning, and did
    a system restore. Now when my computer boots up it asks for a password that
    I never created so that I am locked out of my computer.

    Unfortunatly, I have an important document that I must recover so I cannot
    attempt to wipe out the drive and start from scratch. So I am having to pay
    hundreds of dollars to recover my data.

    My Advice, dont download. IE8 beta.

    i would appreciate any helpful input anyone has.

    No one should download beta software on their main computer.

    You do know what 'beta' software is, right?
