Internet Explorer 9 on Windows Vista

My Internet Explorer will not open, Script error message "A web browser has blocked this site from using an ActiveX control in an unsage manner", then aother message "as a result, this page might not display correctly", then another "a problem with this web page cause IE to close and reopen".  Which it does, it closes and reopens quickly, like a can not tough the "tool" box.  I have been able to connect onto the IE via Internent Explorer (64 bit); although I know this is not right. Can someone please help me solve me problem so I don't use the IE (64 bit) but the actual Internet Explorer.  This happened when I upgraded to IE 9, I did not want to do this, but the request kept coming up.

install firefox and when prompted set it to be your default browser.

Sorry it isnt answering your question but IE is more prone to becoming infected and I wouldnt recommend it.
Strange ie9 is still beta  so you can better uninstall it from the software control panel item.

I can not find the IE9 software in the control panel to unistall.  I installed Firefox, but did not set a default browser, how can I go back and do so.  The problem is all software is connected to the IE9, which is the program that closes with error box (repeatedly).  I can not locate the IE (64 bit) software either.  I'm not sure what "reboottech" means by cfh.  Can anyone else help with suggestions?
you can set firefox as default with the default programs option.

but ie9 must be there to uninstall. it can be that you must enable the show updates selection.

open firefox, click [tools] [options] [advanced] you will see an option to always check that firefox is your default browser

OK, I set the Firefox as the default browser.  Is it OK for me to use Firefox as another option of web browsing in stead of IE.  Sorry this is new to me, where do I go to "enable show updates selections"? I still can not locate both Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer (64-bit), I can see the ICONs but not the software program to have the option to unistall.  This is what I wanted to do when I upgraded to a IE9 and started getting all the errors, which was to unistall then reinstall, but couldn't locate the programs.

You can just ignore IE now and continue to use firefox for all your browsing needs.  If I remember correctly, IE is a core component and cannot be uninstalled.  Either way it's doing no harm staying installed.
