Hello my name is Robert and I am new here and this is my first post, so please bear with me. This afternoon when I got online and opened Internet Explorer to my homepage the entire layout was changed, I do not know why since i have not upgraded or downloaded anything new, I have windows 7 Professional, and use Internet Explorer 8. Does anyone know how to change the looks of IE8, I have done system restore and all the other resets that I know. The page color changed, the layout has changed and it has all sorts of things I do not wish to have on the page, even the font size seems to have changed. I run Norton 360 2012 and have good protection. help please, and thanks for taking the time to read all this mess, I hope I have made some sense out of this all.

Hello Robert and Welcome -

By now you need IE 9 as a minimum for Windows 7 systems -
Download IE 9 for 32bit computers also contains a link to current Firefox version -
Download IE 9 for 64bit computers
 

Thank You -

EDITED to update links -

Thanks for the information. I downloaded IE 9 but it"s still the same. I'll keep searching for a fix until then I thank you for your input, if and when I find an answer I'll let you all know. Have a great day.

I have tried to copy and paste picture of homepage but can not sorry. I think it may be a script error, either java script or active x. just don't know all I do know is that it was working fine yesterday and just like that when i logged back on Internet Explorer the lay-out had changed and I can not change it back.
