windows internet explorer

Go to solution

is there any way i can prevent BT programs like Home Hub , Broadband Help etc automatically using Windows Internet Explorer and use my preferred option of Mozilla Firefox? I find that Internet Explorer really slows my PC down.

perhaps i should have mentioned, but this is a mark 1 hub - if i click on the orb there is no mention of default programs but thanx anyway.

i can set default in windows but the BT programs just override it to use Internet Explorer!

If you want to play with the Home Hub settings in Firefox, just bookmark http://bthomehub.home/ and forget using any BT software.
