IE8 opens Firefox?

Specs: WXP SP3, P4 / 1500Mb

I have recently reset a PC and reinstalled/updated everything, and all seems to work as it should.However, the one problem that has appeared is my being unable to use Internet Explorer 8.

When I open IE8, it looks fine until I try to click away from the homepage - it opens the link in Firefox, the default browser. Not what is wanted.

It works fine when using Windows Update: I can even cut and paste links into the Update window and use IE8 properly that way. Not ideal.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Uninstall IE8 and download (rather than use update) and reinstall IE8. Look here:

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
