how do I repair a corrupted ie8?

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:

If that doesn't resolve the problem, then try the following two procedures in the order presented:

I hope this helps.

Good luck!
