How do you know it is corrupted rather than simply not working right for some reason?   What version of Windows are you using?

Depending on the OS, uninstall it, download a fresh copy, and re-install it (for XP or Vista).

If you have Windows7, then try the following to fix IE8:

Try reviewing the following article:
