Help !

I have Firefox 1.5 and I was using it for quite a long time...

Now when I wanted to see how my site looks in IE, I went to IE and on typing the URL and pressing enter, it opened Firefox for the site !

Noteven the URL shortcuts are opening in IE, it just redirects that link into a new Firefox window !

I uninstalled Firefox thinking the problem might go away but now if I enter any site's addess and press enter IE says "Application Not Found" :?

How to get rid of this funny hijack !

Edit - IE is default and now it opens Opera ! I removed Opera too and now it again says "Application Not Found"

Please Help ! :cry:

Plz tell your version of IE and OS.

If you are using WinXP and IE6, then disable any addons of the IE which can be found under tools->Manage Add-ons.

Even there might be possibility of spyware or virus. Do check for them.

Hope this might work out. :)
