Dragon hasn't been right since installed

I downloaded and installed CD a couple days ago with the intent to replace IE on XP with it. But its functionality thus far has been less than stellar. I wouldn’t even call it marginal. Since its been installed my start pages only open sporadically. When I click on Extensions a new tab opens and times out after a while, just can’t get to it. Same thing when I try to access Settings. What’s up with that? Any suggestions?

Hi t-bone,
I would suggest trying the portable version, this will help eliminate any issues that could have occurred during install.
If the portable functions correctly, then we can try to find the cause of these issues with the installed version.
Note: The portable is independent from your installed version.
Portable Version

Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and uninstalled this browser and installed Avant which runs fine on top of IE.
