I would think you haven't completely removed IE9 and part of it is still on the PC. Perhaps running Ccleaner or similar may help or checking 'Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Event Viewer/System' to see if there is anything there that helps. Failing that you may need to reinstall IE9 and uninstall it again.

Alternatively there may be a solution here: link text

Funny old things happening GB's.

I am running ie7 and am having the same problem. It takes about 7 or 8 yes activations to get to home page.

BT Yahoo is the home page.

I have not fixed it yet so have migrated to FireFox for the time being.

I had just downloaded and installed Irfanview and add ons. Thought that was the problem. But don't know now.

Even funnier. It appears to have cleared itself for me. I suspect it was the web site having problems.
