Please try this:If you go to the control panel, and double click on "default Programs" the last of four options will be "Set Program Accesses and Computer Defaults". Tell the User Account Control prompt to "continue", then click the radio-button by the "custom" option, and then hit the expand arrows to the far left, it'll take you to a bunch of options. the first is "Choose a default web browser"
hope it helps!

Keep getting connecting tab

Open your Internet Option in the control panel and go to the advanced tab and click the RESET tab to reset internet explorer to it's default settings.

If that don't solve the problem try a better browser. Internet Explorer is the worst browser there is.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome.Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they arefaster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to and in the search box type: "Download MozillaFirefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefoxfrom Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on themto go to their site to do the download and install.

Please tell me how to set Firefox as my default browser.

It is pretty easy to set Firefox as your default. First click on Tools, then click Options. If you don't see the top menu, hit the ALT key on your keyboard. Once you are in the options screen, click on Advanced. There should be a "System Defaults" section on the lower part of the menu. Click on Check Now and it should let you pick Firefox as your default browser.

What is a default browser? when i open hotmail it says hotmail default.

The default browser is the program that Windows uses by default when you open web pages or websites. If you've never changed it before than Internet Explorer is your default, so whenever you click on an internet link (from an email, in a Word document, in a PDF, etc...) than Internet Explorer opens that page. If you install another browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera....) then it may ask if you if you want to set it as default when you install it. Why Hotmail is asking/talking about a default I'm not certain. If you have the desire to use a browser other than internet explorer than you should set it as your default. The procedure for that will var depending on your operating system.
