What the HELL is going on With IE9??
« on: September 14, 2012, 11:25:14 AM »
This is getting on my nerves...I cannot change my home page...

Even IE doesnt stop telling me about its not the default browser ever after i unchecked the setting of that notification..this all has seemed to happened after latest win updates for IE9....it looks like every time I open IE it keeps saying to me your internet explorer has been upgraded bla bla...whats on with this?? I even tried Fixit from MS....but this is not getting it..Any ideas?? IE doesnt seem to listen when i tell it to use google as my only home page it keeps taking me to msn...when i didnt want msn as homepage but Google as my Home page.

Are you running a security program which does not allow your home page to be hijacked?
