Hi have been having problems with my computer I thought we had solved them.
But when I try to lock on to internet explorer, fire fox or anything on my desk top I get widow asking “choose the program you wish to use on this file…. Then its got File IXPLORE.EXE
Under this it then has a list of recommended programmes I have tried clicking these, I then get a security warning do I want to run or save, if I try to run it tries to load but get keeps running even after half an hour
On the bottom bar I have an ebay icon if I click this I get on to the internet
I have down loaded all miro soft updates
Any ideas?
thanks

In IE click on the Help menu and select 'About Internet Explorer'
