IE Wont load (will load for other users using computer)

Q: IE Wont load (will load for other users using computer)

I am having trouble with internet explorer (the newest edition) When I try to open it, it opens up, my homepage wont load and everything becomes non responsive the tool bars, file menus, even the "x" to close the window wont work. It completely freezes up. Worse yet, other users on this computer are having no problem using internet explorer when they are logged on to their side of XP. Why is it that when im logged on to my user name on XP that internet explorer wont work? I need help quick as all my favourites are saved in IE and I need to access some pages very soon. Im using firefox right now, and absolutely hate it. Please help me.

thanks, help soon im goin crazy trying to figure it out.

Preferred Solution: IE Wont load (will load for other users using computer)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi IEProblem, welcome to TSF..

So I removed the "anti virus xp 2008" virus and now wen I turn on my pc and it asked me to login in I can type my password but it never loads completely. I can only access my pc in safe mode. I assume I just need to get the xp disc and repair it but I could be wrong...any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

A:Wont Load Users...?

Try running System Restore.Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System restore.When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.This will take a while, so be sure you have time to allow this to complete running.

Our users have IE 7 and 8. We keep them locked into place by pointing IE to our firewall product (tools > internet options > connections > lan settings), so that only approved sites are the ones that our people can access.In the last few days, several of them report issues with specific websites loading very slowly - load times of over an hour just to get the log-in screen to appear.Troubleshooting Steps:1.) Unchecked the "use proxy server for your LAN" under the IE menus---> Site resolves instantly, as it should---> This pointed me to the direction that perhaps the site wasn't configured for our firewall2.) Re-checked the "use proxy server" box, and specifically configured the site in our firewall---> Site continues to resolve slowly, with the same load times as before performing step 1That would normally indicate that the problem is on the vendor's end. Something may be wrong with their site. And that's the line of thought I was pursuing until I was reported back to that the users are having the same problem on other websites. These new websites they're having problems with are, and have been for a long time, configured properly in the firewall.I'm not sure what my next step is to pursue. What am I looking for now? I don't know enough about networking to figure out where to track next.

A:Users are unable to load websites - no error, just 1-hour+ load times for pages

Hi there

fixing a friends pc and it had lots of trojans and spyware. Ran the usual cwshrdeer, spyboy s+d and even trojan hunter. He couldnt perform a scan using his trend micro.

The main problem i had was an (02 bho) that couldnt be fixed using hijack this-it kept reappring with a slightly altered name. and using sypbot it found 5 dso (?) in the rgeistry regarding timezones. every time i fixed and rebooted spybot found the same 5.
adaware found over 100 problems and trojan hunter found almost 150 trojans.

The problem thatw as reaccuring was on the taskbar it was an icon which kept popping a popup up saying your pc has been infected with spyware lick here for antivirus solutions - which i believe is a virsu in itself.

so i wanted to do a hijack this log for you to help me out but i bought his pc home withme, connected it all up and now it wont boot.

i cant run safe mode and when i boot to windows i get the xp loading splash screen but when it gets to the users list the monitor goes off and all i hear is the fan whirring.

if i cant get in how can i fix it???????

ive done a repair install using his xp disc but this hant done anything-still the same.

ive got the chance i can slave the drive to my pc but what good will this do in running any malware removal etc and surely i wont eb able to edit the registry!!
please help me guys n gals

Backstory (skip if you need)
I'm fixing someones laptop, It was slow and taking 30 minutes to startup, i did the usually virus scan and restarted, then it was stuck in an auto repair loop. I used a windows 8 Install CD from microscoft. None of the options in it would work, install (key doesnt match) reset (missing partition), image recovery (cant find an image), restore (no restore point), etc.
 
Used command prompt, did stuff like bootrec, bcdedit, diskpart, and chkdsk. After it ran chkdsk it finally loaded windows. I reset/reinstalled the OS completely. Fixed, restarted, running smooth. Owner said it was working great for a day, then after turning it back on it was in an auto repair loop.
 
Now
It's stuck in a preair loop, I can't even boot from the 8 CD! Have it configured in the bios, it shows the the blue windows logo then the screen goes black for 3 minutes and a blue screen flashes for 1 second saying  "Your PC ran into a problem and need to restart. Collecting some info (0% complete) search online for error: 0x000021a"
 
The weird thing is, Windows 7 disks boot fine, but it's "not compatible". And if I physically remove the HDD, it will boot into the windows 8 CD. So I put the HDD back in (while still at the command prompt) and it wont take my commands in related to the C: . I get a "System cannot find the drive specified"
 
I also tried hooking upp the HDD to my PC SATA, it shows in explorer, but just right clicking it crashes explorer.exe. D... Read more

A:Windows wont load, Boot CD wont load, Automatic Repair Loop

UPDATE:
 
I got a windows 8.1 disk made and it allowed me yo boot from the CD, but it's SLOOOOW, it takes minutes to load reset or w.e (none of them still work), or open the command prompt.
 
I ran chkdsk /f /r /x but it didnt help. chkdsk /r ends with:
"A disk read error occurredcc0000185
Insufficient disk space to fix the Usn Journal $J data stream."
 
Before when I ran it, I'm pretty sure it let me restart and booted into windows, not now.
 
Next I tried bootrec.
/fixmbr - succesful
/fixboot - succesfull
/rebuildBCD - Total identified Windows installations: 0
/scanOS - Total identified Windows installations: 0
 
Next bcdedit
Nothing worked "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found."
 
Next sfc /scannow
"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."
Then sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=d:\Windows
"Windows resources protection didnt find integrity violations"
 
BCDBoot c:\WindowsFailure when attempting to copy boot files
 
Next diskpart - but I forgot what I did before that may have worked. All i can remember is I had to select a disk or volume, and do something with it.

Hi all, I am new to this forum & I am hoping you will be able to help me with a few problems I'm having with my PC.

This seems to be an intermittant problem but it happens more often than not.

When I boot up the pc no matter who's login i use (mine or the wifes) when the desktop loads, the taskbar down the bottom is frozen. When i move the mouse over it there is just a hour glass.

Also certain programs won't load up like I-tunes or the defrag yet when i go into processes the itunes exe is showing.

Internet explorer seems to work ok.

I dont know if this is posted in the right area but I'm so desperate to get my laptop working its unreal.
First it started off with my laptop crashing, I had totally forgot it needed to do a windows update and turned off my laptop in hopes that it would work properly.
After that my laptop has not been working. The machine turns on and gives me two options. Start windows normally or do a repair. Upon starting windows normally, it loads so far before sending me back to the two options of start windows normally or repair. On the second time I clicked repair. My laptop then goes so far before presenting me with a blue screen that is usually the screen where my accounts are. The cursor still moves but it loads no further even after leaving it an hour. I decided to make a repair disk, hoping that the problem was because of windows. the disk loads, gives me a choice on the keyboard language then does nothing. I honestly have no idea what to do, I want to keep all the files safe on my computer as I havent backed them up and I have worked so hard on the projects. someone please help

A:windows 7 refuses to load and system repair wont load

Do a hardware/software reset with your BIOS:Shut down and turn off the computer.
Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
"Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
(If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware

After doing those steps, clear your CMOS by entering the BIOS (see your system manual for steps to enter the BIOS), going to the EXIT screen, and loading setup/optimized defaults.

A:Web pages wont load or load completely

Do you have more then 1 computer connected to your modem/router? If so, does this happen on them? If not, can you connect a separate one (ex: friend's laptop) to test?

Normally when you get errors like this it's best to rule out a problem at the modem/router and provider before going crazy over trying to fix a problem (that may not exist) on your PC(s).

Also just a couple of other questions:

Who is your internet provider (ISP)?
What connection type do they use (Cable/DSL/Fiber/Fixed Wireless/Mobile Wireless)?
What is the make and model of your router and modem?

It appears that you have already posted a hijackthis log here.Please be patient while waiting for assistance. HJT Helpers are all volunteers regardless where you post a log. While waiting for a response, you should not ask for help elsewhere or make changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) Any modifications you make on your own can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, following advice outside of that post may cause confusion for the HJT Helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.If you had posted your log here, similar rules would apply. We would ask that you be patient while awaiting a reply and refrain from asking for help elsewhere.If you followed any other advice already, please ensure you inform the HJT Team Helper when they respond to assist you with your log. This will help them know what has been done and they probably will ask for an updated log.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Would boot up far enough to say it couldnt read drive A. Went into BIOS and changed it to boot to CD only....starts to load and shuts down - then it won't power off.----> Sometimes it will power off to reboot and sometimes not. Once I actually got it to start booting windows to have it stop 1/3 of the way in. So I thought HD...they had a crappy 6.8 gb in there anyway.

Hello there,
 
It seems like you did not perform a clean installation of Windows and that's why your system is acting up. 
 
Follow the steps below to install a new copy of Windows:
 
1. To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation you will need to start or boot your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive. Insert your Windows 7 disc in your CD/DVD drive. Please note: will need to restart or turn on your system with the disc in the drive. 
2. After turning on your system with the CD in the drive go ahead and press any key when prompted during your computer post routine and then follow the instructions presented on screen. If you don’t see this go back to step 1 to setup your BIOS to boot from CD or USB flash drive depending on your installation media.
3. On the Install Windows page simply enter your preferences and click next.
 
4. Accept the Windows license agreement.
 
5. On the “Which type of installation do you want” page go ahead and choose the “Custom” option.
 
6. Select Drive options (advanced) on the “Where do you want to install Windows” page.
 
7.  Select the partition that you want to change, choose the formatting option you want to perform and then follow the instructions.
When allocating space choosing the default MB size for your drive is typically the best for most users since you want to take full advantage of all your disk... Read more

Nothing will load on my Compaq Presario 700 notebook. It wont even turn on in safe mode.
When I go to turn it on it sounds like the hard drive attempts to spin. I don't hear the fans, but all the lights come on. The battery is fairly new and everything is plugged in properly.
All this began when I was running Macromedia Dreamweaver MX and it locked up forcing me to shut down.
Any ideas?

My SIL has messed this up badly. I am very good at following directions and usually figuring out computer problems, but now I cant do anything. The computer boots, shows windows XP loading and then stop. No error message. No blue screen. NOTHING. Just empty dark blackness. And I am at a loss what to do. I know they have viruses on their computer and I was trying to help them get the computer fixed. Now I dont know what to do. Any help for a lost newbie?

Hope anyone can help me.

I got a My Book 1140 (2TB), when I connect it to my computer (also tried on 2 other laptops),

1. Appears listed on the hard drive, but does not load. The bar that determines the space of the used or free disk does not appear. And if I click on it, tells me the perimeter is incorrect so cannot access to the WD My Book

2. Also on the COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, doesn't appear under volume but it does under disk management is the one call Disco 1, but cannot open it.

I also use the WD Data LifeGuard Diagnostics, told me have some bad sector, so I fix them, unplug and plug the USB and same error, wont load, sometimes wont even appear or the computer tells me need to format, I click on format (don't want to erased) and tells me the WD My Book is not connect it

Any Ideas?

Welcome to the forum.
Bad sector and / or bad block is a bad signal.

I use an HP a720n and lately I've been having some problems.

A few days ago it started to make the noise that it makes when shutting down (maybe the hard drive stops spinning). It would do that several times and basicly freeze up. The mouse will still move but programs can't be opened.
Now it won't even boot up. An error message appears that says file windows/system32/config/system can't be loaded.

I run 2 250 gig Western Digital Hardrives and do a lot of video editing, but the external drives have there own power supply. A few months ago I installed an extra 512 stick of Kingston Ram, and it ran fine for months before it started recently acting up.

I ran an antivirus program on it and came up with nothing.

Could my hardrive have crapped out ?
PSU maybe?

All help is appreciated. Thanks.

I have a Dell 9100 Dimension desktop with Windows xp. Today i switched on the power. The screen brough up the Dell image and a load bar appeared. As the computer loaded up it gets stucks permanently i.e. the bar gets one third filled (white bar). Ive tried removing plugs reloading many times etc. Ive tried inserting a Windows xp cd and whilst it seems to be reading it nothing appears on the screen. Help!

A:computer wont load Windows XP

Paul, welcome to TSF.

Can you confirm that it's the Dell load bar that gets stuck, and not the XP loading bar??
If it's the first Dell screen, then check the Diagnostic Lights on the back of the tower. There will be 4 circlular lights numbered 1 to 4, or lablled A to D. Check what sequence is (they should be all green for a normal working towers) and compare what they mean in this Troubleshooting guide:

On my roomates computer whenever she tries to laod a new page the url wont automaticaly load. For example if she wants to check her e-mail, after she types in her password it wont automaticaly direct her to her e-mail inbox. But instead a different screen pops up and reads something like "Internet Explorer cant automaticaly load new URL's, please check your browser settings" Exactly how do I change the browser settins? I already tried playing around with the internet options, but that didnt seem to fix the problem. Is there anything else I need to be doing?

A:My roomates computer wont load URL's

Hello Bug,

Sorry to hear about your Roomy's troubles. Several things she should do first just out of principle. Update definitions and run a complete virus scan. If any viral activity is found, post the name of the virus and the location of any uncleanable files. Download, update and run SpyBot Search and Destroy from the link in my sig. Be sure to close out all browser windows before doing the scan. You can also run adaware too as it sometimes will find things that SpyBot S&D won't. Once you've done all that, reboot the computer. Download Hijack This and post a HJT log for us to look at.

Edit: We may not find the problem by doing this, but at least we've eliminated a bunch of things from the list. So, lets give it a try!

I could use some help... our old desktop with Windows XP will not boot up. I belie e the main hard drive was running out of capacity and my son loaded a new program. Next time the computer was started it would .it load up Windows xp. Can you tell me what steps to correct this? Is it possible that the hard drive is crashed? If so can I recover the data from it?

Assuming it's a factory-brand one and not a custom/home-made one, what's the brand name and model name and model number of that computer?

Do you have the Windows XP disc for it, and does it contain any of the 3 service packs?

Did it come with Windows XP Home Edition or Professional or Media Center Edition?

Is the 25-character product key on its COA sticker readable?
(Do not submit that number here)

We're not there, so you need to advise us exactly what happens when you try to start that computer and load Windows XP.

Hey Everyone.

My dads computer has just stopped working for some reason. I can normally figure out why it doesnt work, but this time I cant..

So this is what i've done.

I've started up my dads computer, it goes to the black screen with "Safe mode" "Safe mode with networking" etc etc. I clicked the bottom one (Load micrsoft xp normally blah blah blah)

It gets to the start up screen, then it just restarts itself. I thought, huh. Lets try Last Known Config, but it restarts itself like I stated earlier. I then tried booting it in safe mode, and safe mode command prompt. It still doesnt work, but what I did notice, a blue screen with some writing pops up just before it restarts, but you can read it because it restarts after like a less than a second.
My dads computer is a Windows XP pro by the way.
Thanks everyone who helps me.

oh, btw. I can take a video of what happens if you guys want, if you cant figure it out. Thanks again.
Edit: sorry if this has been asked before.

when I try to load my computer, the computer loads but the monitor does not. I end up having to do a hard shut down and reload the computer then it usually works fine. I have tried a new cable and monitor but it does not fix the problem. I have checked the graphics card and it says it is working properly. I have run windows troubleshooter to check for errors but none are found. What could be causing this. I am running windows 10 but it was a windows 7 originally, the problem has been happening for a couple months now and i upgraded when windows 10 first came out so I don't think the upgrade is the problem either.

I have posted on another site for help but I am getting slow answers and I want to get more or better feed back.

My computer crashed last night and failed a physical memory dump. It will no longer load appropriately, in that it takes 15 minutes to load safe mode or regular. It has a click then beep in a very consistent pattern. it is not rapid but consistent, this only occurs when trying to boot the computer. When I do get the computer to load in safe mode or regular it no longer shows my files, images, applications, and documents. Instead, it shows an NPR-User with basic factory style programs such as CTest. However, when I go into the start menu and click computer the hard drive shows the exact amount of free space as when i was using my computer before the crash. WIth advice from the other site I have created an ubuntu cd and selected the Try It option. It can not recover any files as it only shows the NPR-User and Ctest files. I am a college student, I dont do anything ridiculous with my laptop, I need it for school, and I need help.

Known Specs:
Toshiba Qosmio x500
Windows 7 Ultimate
6g Ram
Nvidia video card (unsure of model)
2 hdd
Intel I-7

A:[SOLVED] My computer crashed and now it wont load

Hi and welcome to TSF,

You have no backups at all?

You can try unhide it may be able to recover the files if hidden link below:
Unhide.exe - A introduction as to what this program does

Backup immediately if files are recovered.

If you go to the driver update pages for your toshiba on their website it may have an update for your hdd firmware.

Some seagate drives have suffered from this and update is all that is required to eliminate only known it on dell studio's tho.

You have checked the second hdd to see if any important data is on there?

i have an intel core 2 e4400 2.0ghz proccesor, 3 (1)gig sticks of ram and an intel dg965wh board

I was recently trying to manually set memory timings and set the cas latency to three, originally five but later changed to four with no ill affects.
Restarted the computer and heard three beeps meaning a memory error, computer never loaded not even bios, then reset the bios by removing the battery. same issue, still hear the beep codes nothing loading
 

A:memory timings set to low, computer wont load

Just how did you change the memory timings? I checked the manual for that board and it says "No changeable options" under memory settings in the bios.

Have you tried to clear cmos with the clear jumper? If not, follow this procedure.
1 Unplug the pw cord from the pw supply
2 Hit the ON button 1-2 times [this removes any residual charge from the pw supply caps]
3 Clear cmos with the clear jumper for a min of 30sec
4 Replace jumper to keep position
5 Reinstall pw cord and pw ON system
