it acts and looks normal if i go the guest account, so i must have a setting messed up ???? any help would be nice thanks

i think it all started when i installed IE 9 beta but i dont see how that could affect it ?? i really dont like it ether is there a way to get IE 8 back i cant stand the Beta there's so many bugs in it .
