IE9 AND 8 has been causing problems on my PC with regards to Adobe Flash player. So I now use Chrome and have no problems with flash player, but when I try to view records in family tree maker software it try's to open widows with IE not Chrome, although Chrome is set as default.It then asks to install flash player again. So I wondered if it is possible to disable IE.

It may be easier to uninstall and then reinstall Family Tree Maker which should then pick up the new default browser. Just make sure you save your data to a GEDCOM file before you unistall, you can then import it after reinstalling.

You also need IE for Microsoft updates, and Hotmail/Windows Live also uses MSN which in turn relies on Internet Explorer.
