type default into your start-menu search-box.

select 'default programs'...

...et voilą.

then uninstall ie9 from the control panel, i suppose.

i would keep ie8, though.

No harm Mickey, I only knew that from uninstalling it myself once.

I am pleased to say IE9 was the culprit I am now running like i should clean and clear with out the bs Blurr Man you guys saved the day

I am going to rep each and one of you especially Mickey megabyte you were helping since first post yesterday very gratefull and now very happy So I guess im going to stay away from the BETA for a while but in retrospect I think IE9 is still in use cause i uninstalled it but the browser looks the same wierd but I don't care it works
