Problems with Internet Explorer

  Cara2 12:46 15 Nov 2010

Following on from a series of problems which provoked my to do a clean install I now find the following:

Internet Explorer 8 (I think) - I am unable to access certain websites, PC Advisor being one of them. I am also unable to access PCA via my Iphone which is strange. On my PC my attempt fails and the browser crashes. Very weird. This also happens with EasyJet.

Have installed Google Chrome - everything seems fine with that.

I am using Windows 7. Any suggestions please?

To establish which version you have installed - from the I.E.Homepage click on HELP "About Internet Explorer"

"Unable to access certain websites" - make Internet Explorer your "default" browser - Tools - Internet Options - Programs Tab - Make Default - click OK

It was indeed Explorer 8.

It does seem to be sorted - by resetting 'restore advanced settings' and 'reset'.

Thanks for your response.
