    Computer/Internet Internet Explorer web browsing help please.

    I have been having a strange problem when using IE8 and despite extensive Googling cannot find a solution that works. If I click on certain links from a Google search, frequently Wikipedia pages, instead of the page opening I get a 'Download File' box appear asking 'Do you want to save this file or find a program online to open it?' I can open the same page from an alternative computer so the problem is pc specific. Please don't suggest Firefox!!!

    Google Chrome?

    1. Click the IE "Tools" menu, or press Alt+T.
    2. Choose "Manage Add-ons, " then click "Enable or Disable Add-ons."
    3. Select the "Google Dictionary Compression sdch" add-on.
    4. Click the 'Disable' radio button, then click "OK."

    If the problem exist after this try another browser similar to IE to see if it continues. I use Avant Browser (looks and feels similar to IE without the bugs avantbrowser.com/ ) Give it a go.
