RE: INTERNET EXPLORER 8 INSTALLATION ISSUES

You mentioned your antivirus application.  Have you tried disabling the antivirus during installation, and the re-enabling afterwards.  It could be picking up some of the installer's activities as suspicious, and blocking or stalling them.

Also, if you have any other security defense/firewall products installed, try disabling them during the install/reinstall.

Is this on an XP/Vista/7 machine?  If XP, you can try the program, RegScrubXP from MajorGeeks.com to clean up some registry entries in case that's causing the issue, or else Advanced System Care, Glary Utilities, and/or CCleaner from www.download.com - note, this may not fix the issues for sure, but it's worth a try...

Another thing you could try (if possible): Use Windows System Restore to restore your system to a time just before you initially attempted to install IE8.
