Solved: IE8 won't open pages, asks to save instead
I am having trouble using Internet Explorer to browse the web. When I start IE, it tries to load the homepage, but instead of loading the page, it asks where I want to save the file.

I have tried to stop loading the homepage before it gets to that point, and asked it to load other sites (Google, Yahoo, etc.). The result is always a save dialogue.

This is not an internet access issue because Safari and Firefox both work fine.

Other things I've tried:
- Tried to load a web page from Windows Explorer. Ended up with the same dialogue box.
- Tried to reset Internet Options through Control Panel. Can't even get Internet Options to open.
- Tried re-downloading IE8 and re-installing. Didn't fix the problem.
- Updated my virus protection software, and it removed some trojan horses. Restarted the computer, but the problem persists.

Computer information: MacBook Pro, with the latest OS X and all the software updates installed, running the latest version of Parallels Desktop for Mac, running Windows XP SP2 with the latest software updates, running Internet Explorer 8.

Please help.

Please download and install HijackThis by clicking here.

Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

Do not fix anything
