internet explorer not working but other browsers are working just fine

Q: internet explorer not working but other browsers are working just fine

when ever i start internet explorer this msg appears

" Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address."

i tryed going to other pages and it still doesn't load
and the internet connection is just fine

Preferred Solution: internet explorer not working but other browsers are working just fine

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.)

IE, Firefox, Chrome but none of them are working. The only site i was able to open is this forum. I know my internet connection is fine because utorrent is working. Any ideas? Thanks.

I am having issues with my web browser that I hope someone can help me with. When I open IE or Firefox, it takes an EXTREMELY long time to open a webpage (about an hour).

When I open a web browser in IE, it hangs at "connecting" for about 20-25 minutes. It then moves to "waiting for http://(whateverwebsite)" for another 20-25 minutes. Then it displays the website, but hangs for another 15-20 minutes. When I open a webpage in Firefox, nothing happens at all.

I know there is nothing wrong with my Internet connection because I can still download updates at a normal speed and I have a couple of online games I can still play normally. I can also still access the Internet fine on other computers (hence this posting). The only issue is with the web browser is on my laptop.

My web browsers were working fine last night and the only change I have made was downloading McAfee. I contacted McAfee and of course they said this is not caused by their software. I conducted a virus scan with McAfee and PCTools and everything is normal.

One thing I just noticed is if I open a web browser and disconnect the Internet connection, the web browser will still go through the steps I listed in the second paragraph and display the webpage an hour later. So the webpage is still being downloaded at a normal speed, it just takes forever to be displayed.

I have already tried restarting both my computer and modem. I have also conducted the following that was posted by JohnWill:

I'm not really sure where to post this, please move if needed.

My internet connection is fine, programs such as MSN work, but when I go to either Internet Explorer it displays the 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage' notice on every page that I try to connect to, also displays a 'Page loading error' notice on every page that I try to visit.

The problem appeared to start when I installed an update for Firefox, and at the time I had an old version of IE which worked fine, although the updated Firefox did not display any pages, I decided to update to IE8, because the version I had installed was pretty ancient, after which IE also began to display this problem.

I have fiddled with my firewall settings, to no avail.

Incidentally I am now using an old version of MSN explorer, which works to display webpages (which is how I am managing to post this!) I am guessing it is something to do with the updates, although I'm not an expert.

Any clues as to what I can do to fix it (I don't want to be stuck with this awful MSN browser!)

Thanks in advance

Hello everyone.

Currently, I live in a college apartment that has internet for the building. Not that many people are here, so I figured it would be okay. Here is a speedtest:

As you can see, it should be decent. It IS decent when I'm browsing the internet..facebook, email, youtube, etc.

It is also fine when I am downloading files.

But when I play games in Steam, it is very slow. When I search for servers, the pings are all 1000+. When I join a game, my ping is 500-600 and it's unplayable cause of how jumpy and choppy I am.

The thing about this is that when I download steam updates/files, it downloads at regular speeds!

How can I fix this? What settings do I look at? I've heard of port forwarding and things like that, but I am not sure exactly what to do.

One huge detail: This very same internet used to run the game fine, as well as World of Warcraft (I haven't tested that game with the internet now since I quit a while back), but there was a huge power out, power went out for 5 days, and now it's running slow.

So anyway, any help would be appreciated. Basically, why are games running super slow when everything else is pretty good?

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Make sure you downloaded, installed, updated and ran these programs (run in Safe Mode) already - Ad-aware, Spybot and Ewido. If you didn't, do them now. For more information, go to http://www.greyknight17.com/spyware.htm

Before you do anything else, please create a folder for HijackThis and put it in a permanent folder (like C:\HJT) instead of the Temp folder. This is required because HijackThis will create backups and we don't want them to be deleted.

I mainly use Google Chrome as my internet browser and about a week ago it started acting up. It would get stuck on a page or would repeatedly send me back to my homepage. I was able to use Skype, Ventrillo, World of Warcraft, etc. My AVG wasn't catching any problems, but the problem was happening. I would restart the computer and the browser would work fine for a little while, then stop.

Following CNET's advise, I installed CCleaner and Malware Software and ran them. No problems detected.

Browser problem has gotten worse!

I found a similar forum here. Browsers not working, internet connection is fine And tried everything that was suggested to that user, but still no luck with my computer.

I spent an hour+ with AVG Tech Support trying to resolve the issue to no prevail. Please help me!!!

A:Browsers Not Working - Internet Connection Fine - Tried "Everything"

Given that a reboot seems to at least temporarily fix the problem and you can connect with other protocols Im leaning towards network or AVG

What were the results when you cleared you cache (suggested in the other thread)?

Have you tried another browser to confirm/deny it is Chrome?

Have you tried with AVG disabled?

Have you tried it in safe mode (F8) with networking?

I have windows 7 on a laptop that I am currently experiencing a lot of problems with. I was away for about 10 months and when I get home and use laptop to go online the browsers (chrome, ie, opera) all say that I'm not connected to internet. I pulled up a DOS prompt and am able to ping by both IP address and domain name. I try to open windows explorer and see it's icon pop up on the task bar but the application never appears/becomes accessible. I don't seem to be able to use dvd drive or flash drives either. I would like to format my HD and reinstall windows but

1. there are some files I need to back up
2. the OS was pre-installed so i don't have a win 7 disk

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.


A:Have internet but browsers don't work. Windows Explorer not working

Try windows explorer and flash drives in Safe Mode (hit F8). If it works, back up your files first thing. And if it works, you should be able to repair the install.

You can also go to Repair Your Computer at boot and try system restore or last good configuration.

To Reset to factory, you should be able to access the Restore Partition. How to do that varies among makers.

Hi folks,

I am hoping that one of you whizz kids can help me. For a few weeks now, IE7 only works around 50% of the time. When it stops working it attempts to connect to internet sites but nothing happens. It acts as if there is no internet connection at all. It is the same for all internet sites. I can try it again 10 minutes later (without re-booting the PC) and it will work fine again for a while.

My internet connection is 100% stable and other browsers such as Opera work fine, even when IE7 stops working.

I tried uninstalling SP3, SP2 and IE7 and reinstalling them all but it made no difference. I am currently running XP SP3. I tried posting in the virus/malware section of this site but the experts can see no evidence of any malware or trojans etc. My system appears clean.

Do any of you have any ideas why this is happening? It happens maybe 10 times per day on average and is very annoying.

I've got a Dell laptop here that isn't functioning properly. I can't get this to work for the life of me! I am currently using this laptop with a different hard drive, it's the install on the SSD that doesn't work. I know that the quick fix would be to simply reload windows, but I don't want the quick fix.

Basically, laptop works with Windows 7 install on a hard drive, no issues. On the SSD, where the ONLY applications loaded are Office 2013 and Firefox (and all the latest updates), the internet does not work (I can ping yahoo.com and get a response, so DNS is fine). The problem persists on IE and Firefox. I have no AV software other than MSE, and the problem persists in Safe Mode w/ networking. The hosts file is clean. The internet worked on the computer just fine when I loaded it, I hadn't used the SSD in a while and when I popped it in, the internet wasn't working. I believe something is getting in the way of port 80, but I can't figure out what. I have disabled all startup applications and all nonwindows services. The computer does not have bonjour. I have cleared history/cookies to no avail. I can't find anything suspicious in the running processes. I can't seem to turn off the windows antimalware process to test that, though.

Any ideas?

I decided to run hijack this and found two BHO's. It's funny that on my new install that I used a handful of times, I have adware, but on this install that's been going for years, I have nothing. Oh well. So I had "Crossrider" and "Coupon Companion". I removed all traces of both, yet still no go. It looks like this managed to install itself on 12/2... which had to be damn close to the date that I bought the SSD, however, I had internet activity as recent as 12/26.

Most likely causes:
There might be a typing error in the address.
If you clicked on a link, it may be out of date.

What you can try:

I also tried Firefox and that is not work either, with the same error as IE. Windows Live email does work and I am able to pull down email, but none of the browsers work.

Also, when I try to update Spybot, Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes they fail, saying that updates cannot be downloaded. I was able to run and update in Safe mode with network to get the updates and run Spybot, Symantec Antivirus, Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes, and Windows: safety.live.com, but no issues were found and the when I reboot in Normal mode, the same problem exists.

Next, I ran SDfix in safe mode and have attached in this note, but also, the same problems exist (see attached: Report.txt)

Finally, I have now run dds.scr this and am posting the results. (see DDS.txt below and attached: Attach.txt)

Now, when I plug in the phone cord (ADSL), into the wall, the link (or internet establishment), keeps blinking, when it shouldn't, saying that it cannot establish a connection.

Both phone cords have the same number, and everything.. and it just wont establish connection, and I don't have anything wireless, and the room is around 50 ft away, so I can't get online at all anymore..

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

What country are you located in.
Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
What is the expected Upstream/Downstream speed for your ISP Connection?
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.

Hi all, first post here, I am simply stumped.

This issue is on my girlfriend's desktop PC. She's running XP, but I'm not sure which version.

- It connects to the Internet via EVDO Aircard. That connection is fine, rock solid (actually much better than my laptop with the same model aircard!)

- We have the Nintendo USB WiFi adaptor connected to another USB port, to share the established Internet connection with our Wii.

The problem is this:
The USB WiFi adaptor is stuck in Acquiring Network Address mode, after running just fine for a couple months!
- I have tried ipconfig/release and renew, I have tried going into the device manager and uninstalling/reinstalling that one thing.
- when I run ipconfig alone, the internet connection comes up with a normal result, but "Local Area Connection 4" (now 5 after the reinstall) comes up with all zeroes.
- when I try to "repair" the connection it gives me an error, I believe it says it cannot get an IP address. But I'm not looking for it to get an IP address - the Wii has a MAC address, and I would think the Nintendo servers would have given it an IP if it needed one, no?

I'm not a power user here, and all the solutions I've found in my search so far, I've either already tried or are over my head.

Anyone out there?

Hi guys I could use anyone's help. The problem is with my desktop pc. I connected it to the modem using a new ethernet cable but I can't access the net. To test the cable, I plugged it to another pc and I got no problem connecting to the net. When I borrowed another cable from a friend and tried it on my desktop, it connected directly to the net. Which means that there is no problem with either the cable that I bought and the NIC of my pc.

The message that I get when I use the cable that I bought on my pc is "Unidentified Network". Can anybody help me out with this?

A:No Internet connection even if cable and NIC is working fine

You should tell Windows firewall that's your new home network. I don't see why a new cable would make your computer think that your old internet connection was something new.

As mentioned in the title, my internet is working fine. spent some time onthe phone with my service provider and he said everything is fine and suggested i plug into another computer and sure enough it works without issue. So everything using wifi works but my desktop will not connect with the ethernet cable.
I just get issues saying problems with dns server.

Attached is the ipconfig /all as it seems to be the first thing asked for from other post i have been reading through.
any help would be greatly appreciated as i would rather not go to the extreme of reformatting.

I have a new DELL XPS M2010 that I want to connect using wireless card. OS - Vista, Linksys Router, when I try to "Diagnose and Repair" I get the response "Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server".

It's showing an Excellent connection to the route, but will not connect to the Internet. I've tried a few things, such as connecting to other unsecured wireless internet connections and I was able to connect to the Internet then. I also looked at another thread on this site that suggested to add a DNS Server to the list of and nothing happened with that.

Other PCs in the house, all on wireless, connect fine (obviously including the laptop I'm posting on right now). Still searching the forums for similar solutions - here is my ipconfig information:

Open a Command prompt and try these pings. You can show the results the same way you posted the ipconfig /all.

Firefox won't connect to the internet or load any of the pages. The internet connection is fine. IE is working, though it does get a bit slow sometimes and I can't seem to download anything.
I've checked:
1.)Anti-Virus software - no threats found
2.)Firefox Setting: It's directly connected to the internet; no manual proxy setting.
3.)Firewall is not blocking Firefox
Any ideas what might be the problem?

Hi There!

I'm not terribly technical so please bear with me. I really hope someone can help as this is driving me nuts...

I'm running Windows 7 on an HP PC wired directly into the Internet. Everything has been fine (more or less) since I bought it a year ago, but yesterday - for no obvious reason as far as I could tell - my main browser (Chrome) stopped working. I tried Firefox and IE, but they wouldn't work either.

Then I saw the Internet was still accessible - iTunes was working, Skype was working, and so on. It was just browsers. I tried reinstalling Chrome and Firefox - nothing. Using my laptop for the initial download, I installed Safari for Windows and - much to my amazement - it worked, but to go over to that permanently seems like a plaster over a major wound. And in any case, there is obviously something very wrong (although probably not terribly serious - I hope!)

Last night and this morning, I've been hunting high and low for a solution to no avail. There are threads on this site (mostly several years old and closed) too, and I think I've now tried every possibility mentioned there.

If I start up in safemode with networking, it's fine.

The only anti-virus product I had was Norton (sorry!) which I've uninstalled. I ran the removal tool twice to make sure.

I've just started work again after the summer holiday and need this machine for my job. If I take it back to the place I bought it, I can wave goodbye to it for sev... Read more

A:internet explorer is not working but when i restart it again working ?

Try this, I copied it from another site

Repair Internet Explorer
It is possible that Internet Explorer has somehow become corrupted. Internet explorer and Outlook express are inextricably linked together. To repair Internet Explorer, open the Control Panel and double click Add/Remove programs. Scroll down the list to find Microsoft Internet Explorer (x) and Internet Tools. Click the Remove button. Select Repair Internet Explorer from the resulting dialog box and click OK. A few seconds will pass and your computer will reboot. Hopefully, this will cure your problem

I'm so upset I could scream.

I just got a new computer a couple of months ago. It has Windows 8 on it. I'm not sure if it is Windows 8 fault or the computers or my internet settings.

I used to always use firefox. But on this computer, firefox won't load the pages. For instance, facebook wont always load all of the way. I have to reload it 5 times and only sometimes it works. So, I've been using google crome, which sometimes doesn't load right either and I have to reload 2 or more times. There is something very very wrong with google crome. I keep getting popups. I mean, I have popup blocker...and there is always a little floater ad that pops up on the side and on the bottom of the page. When I X it out, it pulls up a new web page. When I tell it not to allow third party stuff, it signs me out of all of my accounts (like facebook and email) and won't let me stay signed in for more then 2 seconds. It's getting really frustrating. I hate hate hate windows 8 and the web browsers on this aren't working right. I wish my old computer had not given out after 8 years.

What is wrong with this thing? Can I block all ads on google crome without not letting me use any accounts? Why won't my pages load?

I am, as you can tell by the title, experiencing some internet issues with my web browsers.
Here's the deal: Every program that uses internet works just fine, though there might be a slight delay connecting at first, but they're working (ex. Skype, Origin, Windows Mail App). However, the browsers are barely loading any pages or not loading at all. If I'm lucky it will load but it takes such a long time! But most of the times it just gives up. I dunno wtf is wrong. I can chat with my friends on skype, talk and play online games samontainously but i can't load up fricking Facebook? Waaat.
Also, all my other internet devices are working smoothly, downloaded a file a day ago on my ipad, which I'm using to write this on, at 1.5mb/s no probs at all. So I am really lost what the problem might be. Here's what I've tried that ppl told on other forums that hasn't worked:

-Restarting PC, seems to work for around 20-30mins but then the shit is back suddenly and nothing loads...
Scanning for malware using both Spybot and Malwarebytes (Full scan) Nothing found
Scanning for viruses using F-Secure internet security, none found
Running CHKDSK in command prompt, no problems found
Running ipconfig /renew, no change
Running ipconfig /flushdns, no change
Running netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt, seemed to solve it but only for 30mins or so, prolly coz of the restart
Running netsh winsock reset, same as above

I have a Dell machine with XP windows loaded. I connect to internet via AOL version 9 and I have IE8 installed. Suddenly I am unable to start up either my AOL browser properly or IE8. I have reinstalled XP, IE8 and run virus scans but nothing indicates a problem. When I start up AOL browser the browser opens but it does not display website although at the bottom it says website found, connecting. Sometimes the screen will just disappear. When I try IE8 it connects to the website for about 5 seconds before I get the standard "Internet explorer has encountered a problem and has to close" My event view shows "faulting application error ieexplorer.exe version 8". Not sure what to do next as I have tried reinstalling everything and tried the non ads in IE without any success and tried the reset option too.
Any suggestions? thanks

A:Internet Browsers not working

Reboot in safe mode by tapping F8 when you see the Dell logo splash screen. Select Safe Mode With Networking, login as you normally do then try to open Internet Explorer see if it crashes.

I had a problem with my internet explorer and mozilla. When I click the mozilla or internet explorer, it "timed out" and page is just blank. In other words, I could not go into any website, through my internet explorer and/ or mozilla firefox. When I troubleshoot it, a message told me that there is a connection but it does not respond to it. I prove this right because I can still use the google-talk and skype- they are connected and work just fine. Probably because they (google talk and skype) have separated icons. So definitely something makes my mozilla and internet explorer not to work. I have also tried to play around with my computer's firewall, but still not working.

My laptop's operating system is Window 7.

Thanks in advance.

Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.


PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>


PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

Hi, my PC just recovered form a BSOD, finally, and now the internet is not working . I am connected to my wireless network, I can browse the shared folders, download from bittorrent but my browsers dont work!!! I have Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox :grinthumb and Chrome but all don't work. I have tried the TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

This didn't help either. Internet works fine on all my other machines. I must also add that after I recovered from BSOD my internet was not working at all and I had an svchost error. Windows would detect my network but wouldn't go any further than aqquiring an ip address. After I managed to fix that and now this happens, partial internet :dead:. Please help me.

I am running Windows XP with service pack 3.

(How did I fix the svchost error, well I tried my things so don't know what worked )
