Try Resetting your Internet Explorer.

Go to Start >> then Control Panel >> then Network and Internet >> then Internet Options
Inside Internet Options(Internet Properties) Choose the Advanced Tab >> then Select Reset at the bottom of the page.
Do not put a check on Delete Personal Settings.
Once Reset is done, Go Back to Internet Options again >> then Advanced >> then make sure there is a Check Mark on the "Use software Rendering instead of GPU Rendering"

Open Internet Explorer Again And see if it Works.
If Not, Try this:

Open Start >> then All Programs >> then Accessories >> then right click on Command Prompt
Once the Command Prompt Window opens, type SFC /SCANNOW then hit enter
Wait for it and then restart the computer.
Try Opening IE9 Again.

If it does not work, try uninstalling Internet Explorer 9 and reinstall it.

When you upgraded to Internet Explorer 9, it made a backup of Internet Explorer 8 and replaced it. If you are running windows xp you would have had the Beta release of IE 9, as the full blown release will not run on xp. It was designed only for Vista or Windows 7.

In order to get IE 8 back, you will need to go to Start > Control Panel and look for the option to Uninstall or Change Programs or the Icon for Programs and Features if in icon view. Once the list of programs loads, look for Internet Explorer 9 and then highlight it and click Uninstall at the top of the screen. It will remove the new version and replace it with your previous version. You will need to reboot the machine when it is finished.

Once back up and running you should have IE 8 back in place and fully functional.

Is possible to use IE 8 & 9 in single machine?


Not unless you dual boot the machine. When you install 9 it upgrades and overlays 8. It is hard but not impossible to go back to 8 but if you dont remove 9 first, it wont let you

Keyboard and mouse not working on Sony viao with Windows 8


Did your computer come with windows 8 or did you upgrade to windows 8. If you upgraded, you will find that many of your old drivers will not work with windows 8. You can connect to the internet and check for updated drivers. I upgaraded and had to completly replace my wireless card because the old one was not compatible with windows 8. You can also make sure that everything is pluged in and restart your computer just in case your devices have not been discovered by your system.

Partical incompatability-messed up whole computer-freezes,internet messed up-wont let me delete program out-message keeps appearing!!!


I, myself have had nothing but problems when I downloaded Internet Explorer 9! I got rid of it. The best way to get rid of IE 9 once you have downloaded it is to go to Windows Update, click " view update history", click "Installed Updates" and once they all appear, find Windows Internet Explorer 9 ( Under Microsoft Windows, which is below Microsoft Visual C & Microsoft Silver-light 1, among others ) and uninstall it! It is quite very simple and IS the only way to get back to IE 8 ( If that is what you had previously, otherwise it will default to IE 7. BTW, very easy to re-install IE 8! ). For some reason, once you start using Google Chrome browser, it is best to simply avoid Internet Explorer! I use Google Chrome & love it! I also use Mozilla Firefox! Sometimes we must use Windows IE since it is the browser which came with the computer. But I would avoid IE 9 and just not download it again once you are rid of it! No matter how much Windows/Microsoft tells you that you need to download it! Hope you have your computer running efficiently again! arjay8tch (Richard Holt)

I logged into facebook and it will not let me chat because it says that i have to upgrade my browser to internet explorer 9 how do i dothat


You can download the latest Internet Explorer from Microsoft's website.(http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home)

You can only upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 unless you have Windows 7 as your operating system.
Personally, I would suggest using a different browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Both of these browsers are more secure and faster than Internet Explorer and should allow you to chat on Facebook. Here are the respective links:
Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/
Chrome: http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/landing_chrome.html?hl=en
I hope this helps!

When i try to open facebook said problem in loading page .but i can open other browser.


If you have older browsers like Internet Explorer 6 or 7 - they will quite often show errors while opening. You can try to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 (for Windows XP) or Internet Explorer 9 (Windows Vista and Windows 7).
Opera browser strictly follow standards and sometimes doesn't support non-standard web applications.
Therefore I would recommend to use either Google Chrome or Firefox 4 as your default browser. As for the above mentioned browsers - Opera and Internet Explorer there are no easy solutions for now.
