I am using internet explorer 8 and firefox on my windows 7. I can browse with firefox but IE does not work at all. My job demands a lot of browsing via three browsers (google chrome, firefox, IE). Should I switch back to some other version of IE or reinstall the whole window from the scratch.

Hi Walker and :welcome:

It should be noted that the vast majority of Internet Explorer problems are caused by wayward or conflicting add-ons. Click on the Start Orb and start typing Internet Explorer in the text box until you see Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) appear up top. Then click on that and see if still having problems. Alternatively, you can go to Tools > Internet options > Advanced and click on Reset... to take IE back to the default setup.

Finally, note with Windows 7, you should be at IE9.
