a program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider setting for Internet Explorer 9

    Question

  • When I open Internet Explorer 9, a message comes up:  "a program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider setting for Internet Explorer 9".  Then it is followed by options on picking my primary search provider.  I tried to choose my options, but it does not accept and I am totally annoyed with having to close the two windows each and every time I open Internet Exployer 9.
    I am using Windows 7 Home Premium.
    also have google, which is all the addon I want.

  • Hi,


    This issue occurs may be caused by the third party program’s effect.  I suggest you boot into Clean Boot and reinstall the Search provider for a test.

  • Encountered the same problem. Tried all sorts of solutions suggested on various forum but didn't work. Problem went away after installing IE 10.
