On my new pc i use win 7 and this program worked fine on win 7 (in compatability mode), for about 2 mnths until today it gives an error code

I thought that IE comes preinstalled with, and as,  IE 8 in Windows 7.  In Europe there is an option to also install other Browsers and have them set as the default Browser, but I think IE 8 is included with Windows.  If it is, then uninstalling IE 9 should revert to the original Browser, at least those are my thoughts on the matter, however I could be wrong.

As to your other problem about Speedsearch, which is becoming way above my expertise, why don't you pass the findings made here on to Speedsearch for their opinion?


When you are running in Safe Mode, certain errors are automatically produced in the Event Viewer because most Services do not run in Safe Mode (nature of the beast) by design.  It would make more sense to explore the Event Viewer logs with that in mind and to look for errors not related to being in Safe Mode.


Have you tried running Speedsearch in other compatibility modes?

The System Requirements are mentioned here, and even though it says Windows 7, a different compatibility mode might be worth a try.
