    Posting on correct thread now
    I have just downloaded windows 8. When i try to open internet explorer it will not open. It is set as default and i have updated windows 8 but still it will not open, opera does ok From the app screen clicking I.E i get a blue screen with the IE logo then it reverts back to the app screen The windows update gave me a browser choice but after selecting I.E still no joy I am typing this with Opera

    Using Windows defender now also have installed malwarebytes and spybot, not sure if that is the issue but i doubt it.
