DELL Support Center

I have a DELL Studio XPS 1640 Laptop running Windows 7 - 64 bits. I am using Firefox instead of Explorer. I cannot run DELL Support Center because it looks for IE and I am not using this software. Anyone know how to fix this problem.

Did you disable IE or something? Try turning it back on, and see if the problem goes away.

Hope this helps,

The Dell Support Center likely requires IE as the default browser.

Keep FF as your default, install IE Tab, find out what site the Dell Support Center connects to and add a rule in the IE Tab options to force the site to run in an IE Tab
