Hi,
From Start> Control Panel or Start> Settings> Control Panel, go to Default
Programs> Set Program Access and Computer Defaults> Custom> (expand with
down carats) make sure that "Enable access" is checked and make IE the
default.

What other browsers are installed?
Which appears to be the default?

Hope this helps,

Hi,
I would uninstall/reinstall IE8, making sure that third-party
antivirus/antispyware programs are disabled during the installation.

Re: Can't Set IE 8 as default on Vista
Sorry, I lost track of this discussion.

In this article
http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/0...windows-vista/
can you browse to Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe?

Have Avant Browser or Maxthon ever been installed on this computer?

If you uninstall Firefox and chrome, can IE be set as the default?
