I would word it the other way around, but either way the answer is yes.

 

Download IE8 to your Desktop. Do not use Windows or Microsoft Updates.

Internet Explorer 8 download:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

Restart your computer. With no other programs running, disable your anti-virus program and any spyware or spam programs you may have. If you are running a third party firewall, disable it and enable the Windows firewall.

Now install IE8 from the Desktop. When you're done, restart your computer twice and then make sure your disabled programs are running again.
