Where is the the wheel you showed me?
Found it in CTRL panel>Network & Internet and changed it as you said, please see attached but, then could not open IE even from START, so reversed to where it was.
Anything else I could try, barring delete w8 & reinstall.
I dual boot it with XP & thinking of using "EasyEBD", is it a safe way of unistalling w8 from the dual boot? ....nick

I am not sure whether EasyBCD is up to speed with Windows 8. I have used it a lot on previous Windows systems and it always worked fine. See whether that will work:
Deleting Menu Entries - EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki
If it does work, then you can just delete the Windows 8 partition in Disk Management of XP. But keep the 200GB System partition. That most likely has your XP bootmgr.
And if you still want to use Windows 8 from time to time, I recommend to install it with VMware Player (free) with XP as the host:
VMware Player - Install Windows 8
Thanx but, this means you do not have any more ideas in repairing the IE?
With XP I used to run its CD & gave an option of "repair", win8 DVD does not seem to have it.
1. Is there any other way, than delete, to refresh or repair w8?
2. How does one multitask in w8? ......nick
Install a 3rd party start menu which also boots you straight to desktop.How does one multitask in Windows 8? ......nick
Forget the metro stuff unless you occasionally want to look at the news app. or somethiing.
Lots to choose from - there is a huge demand , some free versions :
Welcome to Classic Shell
Start Menu 8 for Windows 8 - IObit
Windows 8 Start Button
That's a good option. Also check Opera which I really like.
