BT/Yahoo - no Internet Explorer

  both 08:10 10 Oct 2008

Asked to look at a friend's laptop. It's set up for BT Home Hub, what was holding things up was IE7 update not installing. I've got it installed now, but can't open IE. Has it been disabled by the Yahoo browser?

Both :
What firewall is installed ?.... try turning it off & then see if IE will open.
Does the bt yahoo home page open ? ...look at the title in the blue strip at the top of the page
Is it 'BT Yahoo : BT Yahoo Browser'
or is it 'Yahoo UK & Ireland : Microsoft Internet Explorer ?
If the latter IE is opening but you have Yahoo selected as the home page.
Which have you got ?
