Internet Explorer 8 downloads htm file instead of displaying
Posted on 2009-12-16
I've been having a great deal of difficulty with a clients computer. Basically IE8 wasn't opening anything, so I uninstalled and reinstalled. I started getting a few errors on open, like mshtml.dll not found etc (reregistered and all worked). But I'm stumped now.
When I open IE8 window now, it opens as per normal, but then immediately tries to download the web page instead of viewing it - ie, it tries to download google.htm or says 'find a program to open this file on the internet'.
I've reregistered all I can think of, but nothing has worked. All defaults appear to be normal. Any suggestions?
