Preferred Solution: Cannot communicate with internet explorer. Set up Internet Explorer 11 use recommended settings error

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.)

I am using Internet Explorer 11 from Program Files folder which supposedly launches 64 bit applications. This Internet Explorer 11 settings from Tools Options of Custom Level and Advanced tabs Security features were if selected; Internet Explorer

Hi.. I don't know if this is the right section, please correct me if it's wrong. Here is the problem:

My Internet Explorer 7 gives the error: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". I cannot complete the troubleshooting. It states that there might be a problem with my firewall settings. But my Firefox works perfectly on this computer. I have completed all the steps given in this link. However, it didn't work. I cannot run MSN right now because of this. And this is not a problem that developed recently, on this computer I have never managed to run Internet Explorer.

And another point to mention: Whenever I try to visit a site via IE7, before giving "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error, on the status-bar I see a warning for a second such that a "dns error" or something.

Hello everyone and thank you for participating in this wonderful site.

My computer is a Pentium 4, 2.80 GHz, Running Windows XP Proffessional Version 2002 Service Pack 2.
The problem I'm writing about has been there for about a year. All in all it's the same prolem ever since, but every once in a while some detail changes, like a new error message.
Every about 5-15 minutes the Start Menu Taskbar and the desktop icons disappear (Explorer crushes). Most of the times they reappear shortly after, but sometimes they don't, and then I use task manager to run explorer and then they reappear. Yet, sometimes the computer stucks altogether, and I have to restart. In addition to that, many popups open when I surfe the web using Internet Explorer. The popup changes every few days, but in between it's always the same one.
Another point is that while the crushing of explorer can occur anytime, it most often occurs while I open or close Internet Explorer windows.

Sometimes I get an error message, and as I said, they change from time to time. But still, here are 2:

Dear Tech guys,
I badly need your support. Day before yesterday (01-Aug-06) night I upgraded the yahoo toolbar and used their norton anti spy to scan. Then I shut down the system and started to work the next day. Every thing is perfectly ok except for one thing. In Windows Explorer, on any folder or drive if I double click or open I get a crash. If I do explore then there is no problem.

Below is the dialog that comes whenever we double click or open (for eg: on C:\ or any folder in the left side pane of the windows explorer. If I just keep expanding the + of the tree no problem, only on clicking the item to open the following error occurs.)

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

program: C:\Windows\Explorer.exe

This Application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I am running on Windows XP SP 2. I dont have google toolbar. I have yahoo tool bar installed. I have tried uninstalling it and installing it again and other combinations as well.

I have also tried sfc /scannow as well. It did not work.

It doesnt look like any adware or spyware (yahoo's norton spyware had done a complete run and no problems in the system as reported by them).

What should I do now to get back to normal operation of windows explorer.

Thanks and Regards,

I would un-install the Yahoo Toolbar and then put Google Toolbar in, Then I would try to download .NET framework 2.0

Hi, i am new at this, so bear with me lol

We have just moved our XP computer into the living room, and connected it to a 58kb dial-up connection. We installed AVG 8 and everything was running fine

Now we've installed Windows Live OneCare Family safety on the machine so we can monitor my borther and sisters internet usage.

Now, the computer runs extremely slowely, Windows Explorer continually crashes, meaning we have great difficulty opening My Documents, and My Computer or anything that requires Explorer to open

As well as this, now the internet is majorly slow... even for bloomin dial-up, we used to get at least 9kbps, but now its shot down to between 2.5 and 1.5 kbps

AVG is now continuously scanning... even outside of scheduled scans, and constantly wants to update :S

And finally, i have now noticed that small files i dont use very frequently have begun to dissapear from the system!!! music files, images, word docs etc.

We have tried defragging it, scandisk, using AdAware SE Personal 2005, AVG Scans, and they all come up with negligeable results.

As well as this, now the pc wont install files for Trend Micro Online scans to run... so we cant even work it out that way :S

I have a suspicion this could be something to do with OneCare, or Multiple Viruses in the system that have somehow hidden themselves from AVG

Hi,

I can't seem to modify the security settings for IE. Specifically I am trying to log in to my Yahoo e-mail account and I get a message saying "The browser you're using refuses to sign in (cookies rejected)". The privacy report says that, indeed, several versions of the yahoo web-site have cookies blocked even though right clicking on the sites clearly shows that "Always Accept cookies from this site" is selected. I can see nothing wrong with the cookie settings and have cleared caches, temp files etc as suggested by many other solutions out there. Internet search suggests that there should be a P3P entry in the registry but I can't see it anywhere. Where would these records be? I've run Ad-Aware and SpyBot with no improvement.

The PC is running Ranger, a schools based OS but I've removed it with no difference.

Ice, welcome to Sevenforums!

Reseting it is a good idea. It will ask if you want to keep personal settings. After, go to get.adobe.com/flashplayer and download flashplayer to your desktop. Uninstall adobe flashplayer from contol panel in favor of installing this newer version. Check add-ons in internet explorer and make sure all the ones you want are there and none other. Having IEx64 and normal IE is standard on a x64 system, which you have. They are 2 versions of the same browser, but have about the same speed (for IE9). I'd use the normal one due to compatability reasons. Hope this helps

I don't know the answer to your specific problem but I'd be very wary of adding Games Sites to your Trusted Zone - that's really leaving yourself open to attack from any malware running around on those sites (and there will be plenty). What anti-virus and anti-spyware protection are you running at the moment?You should check your system with some online scans:Online trojan scanner: http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/Here are some links to free online Anti-Virus scans. They do take some time to load and run and in some cases you can only use Internet Explorer, with ActiveX enabled, to access them but they are an excellent support for your existing anti-virus program.

I was having some problems with my internet connection (which have been resolved) but my friend came over and hastily set all of my Internet Explorer settings back to default to "solve the problem".

can someone lead me to the right direction to get the settings so that they give me the most security/safety/control? (like what should and shouldn't be checkmarked, etc) thanks in advance!

A:Internet Explorer Settings

As a whole, IE is a fairly secure environment. If wanted you can go into the security tab and set your internet setting to High instead of medium. The best thing to do is to ensure you have all your windows updates completed and ensure you have some type of Antivirus/Antispyware scanners to find anything that may be lurking on your computer already. Below is a list of my most used Antispyware programs. YOu can only have one Antivirus but you can have as many antispyware programs as your heart desires and you can never have to many.

Make sure your ActiveX controls are set as follows:

Go to Internet Options - Security - Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."

In the ActiveX section, set the first two options (Download signed and
unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX
controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.

I am using internet Explorer 11 to access the www.nemsis.org site and when I go to access http://www.nemsis.org/media/CustomElementLibrary/ .

I get the error message below:


I can use Chrome just fine to access the page. I have a coworker who can access just it just fine and he is using Internet Explorer 11 and was also able to access on Firefox. Is there something I am missing to access it? The page should display a map.

Thank you in advanced.

A:Using Internet Explorer 11 but site displays warning that I need internet Explorer 9 or higher.

Answered my own question. Apparently if I place a check in the "Use Microsofts Compatibility list and uncheck the "Displa intranet sites in Compatibility View" it works.

If I set a proxy to be used, in Internet Explorer, will all other applications also go through this proxy then, such as Firefox, bittorrent, Skype etc?

No.

Each application will have it's own proxy settings. Some, such as Firefox, will have the option of using system settings but this must be manually selected. Others will require manual proxy settings.

Hi all,

Hope someone can help, as I have looked through the forum and was unable to locate the information I am looking for.

Does anyone know if there is document which provides information about what the different settings of Internet Explorer 6 does.

Thanks,

makavelli12,

IE's help feature explains all of the settings very well. CLick "Help", Contents and Index, click Search, type settings and press OK. You can also search for options.

Microsoft support site is a valuable tool as well.

Hi,A friend of mine is running Win XP and IE6.I have designed a web site for him which I have emailed to him for proof readings.Javascript has been used to disguise email addresses and an excel spread sheet is included as a download from a link.When trying to run the draft website from his machine in IE6 the script doesn't run but there is no security bar at the top of the browser window where you would normally expect to "click" to be able to select the option to allow it to. In his "Internet" and "Intranet" security settings "Active Scripting" is enabled.When he clicks on the link to download the excel file he gets a message which says something to the effect that "Security Settings will not allow download of this file".However, for a similar web site which I have designed and is published, which uses javascript for the menus, the menus appear as intended so clearly the script is executing. Further, on this site a word doc downloads with no problem.I have to confess I am stumped. Anyone have any ideas?ThanksDerek

Hi Guys,

I resetted my IE 6 settings to their factory defaults for my Windows XP. Are there any settings that you think I should uncheck? What does the Enable Install on Demand do? Also, where are the Enable Active X Controls, that were a part of previous versions of Windows in IE? I do NOT WANT WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 2 on my system. What would you suggest? I am going to uncheck the Automatic Check for IE updates.

reset internet explorer settings,should I or not.
If I reset my settings in IE7 to default this wipes out all my
restricted sites which I need to do because it's full.
There must be 300 sites in there.I guess that could slow my machine
down.what I'm wondering will doing that will that clear my password's
out in ebay and other places like internet passwords,in other words screw my computer up good? I tried Zone out and that took alot of them out
but they came back.I took out spybot search $ destroy,I thought maybe that was putting the restricted

Does someone have some advice on what to do?
Would appreciate it. spidertom

A:Reset Internet Explorer Settings

Resetting Internet Explorer will wipe history, temporary internet files, web form info, cookies and passwords. Resetting won't harm your computer, but because cookies and saved passwords are deleted, all you have to do is re-enter them when you go to ebay and other places that require one. If you use IE7, you'll also have to go through the "choose your options" or whatever it's called. And you will have to reset your homepage. And your restricted sites will also be deleted. If all you want to do is delete the restricted sites, you can do open Internet Options/Security tab.Click the red circle with a line through it, then sites. You can delete them individually, but with 300 sites there, this would take a lot of time to do. I personally don't think having that many restricted sites is slowing down your computer. When was the last time you deleted the cache? It's deleting cookies that wipes out your stored passwords. History, temp internet files, cookies can build up-causing a slowdown. It's a good idea to regularly delete them. As long as you know all your passwords, enter them back in when required. Also, what about defragging? That might help with the speed issue.Read Slow Computer?, Use this troubleshooting checklist for more info on things you can do to speed up your computer. One overlooked file that needs a regular cleaning is the Temp file. (not the same as temporary internet files). TEMP FILES. There are 2 files containing temps. One is temporary internet files, the ot... Read more

Recently, we ran a pilot where FIPS-compliance mode was enabled on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 32-bit computers.  Specifically, the "System cryptography: Use FIPS-compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing" security option was
set to Enabled.  The pilot is over and we turned off FIPS-compliance mode.
Since doing that, I have noticed that the SSL/TLS settings in Internet Explorer 9 are disabled on computers that were part of the pilot.  I know the defaults are:

SSL 2.0 : offSSL 3.0 : onTLS 1.0 : onTLS 1.1 : offTLS 1.2 : off
Now, all of these settings are disabled (grayed out) and the following settings are set:

SSL 2.0 : onSSL 3.0 : onTLS 1.0 : onTLS 1.1 : offTLS 1.2 : off

This affects all user accounts on the system.
The test GPO we used to turn on FIPS mode for these computers has been verified to only be enforcing that FIPS setting.  It was not controlling any Internet Explorer settings.
Here is the troubleshooting I have done so far:

Reset Internet Explorer via the Reset button on the Advanced tab in Internet Options.Put computer in an OU that had Group Policy inheritance blocked, performed gpupdate, and rebooted to ensure no GPOs were affecting the computer.
Verified that local policy was not enforcing the Internet Explorer SSL/TLS settings.Ran msconfig, disabled non-Microsoft services, and rebooted.Removed the Internet Explorer feature, rebooted, re-added it, and rebooted.Installed all available important and r... Read more

A:Internet Explorer SSL/TLS settings disabled

If anyone else runs into this, I resolved my issue by modifying the SecureProtocols
value in the registry (since I avoid Group Policy at all costs) at
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings.
The data to set the registry value to can be found at the link below (just Ctrl+F SecureProtocols).

I'm a newbie to Windows 7 Home Premium & think maybe I've messed up IE9. It seemed to me to be slow & some sites left me with hundreds of items in Temp.IE Files while others, this one in particular, just left 1, so in trying to get less from somewhere else I messed around with IE settings & now don't even remember what I did. So actually I guess my main question is: what is Microsoft Fixit? I've seen reference to it several times but have never used it. I have a very wide 'yellow streak' down my back & don't know which way to go.

Thank you.
oops, forgot to mention that the reason I came here to post was that I'd been in the Tutorials doing some reading when I was interrupted by a phone call & when I came back to continue, it took what seems like forever to 'wake up' my screen. Then when I came back here to edit, it again took too long to open my post. I'm sorry, my wording may be wrong, hope this makes sense.

A:Not sure of my internet explorer configuration/settings

Regarding IE9 setting changes:

IE has a lot of "Restore Default" options in the settings.
Try going back through the IE Options and setting everything back to "default".Internet Explorer - Reset
If your OS came with IE8, you should also be able to uninstall/re-install IE9...Internet Explorer 9 - Uninstall

I went on a vacation recently and came back to discover that my housesitter messed my computer up. I kept getting the warnings about my computer being infected with several viruses (malicious adware software), I can't remember exactly which one it was. I got rid of it, but then I could not get on the internet. I finally discovered a post about unchecking "Use a proxy server for your LAN", so I unchecked it and was able to access the internet. However, whenever I try to google anything, it takes me to different "search" websites instead of linking me directly to the site I want. Or, it will send me to a website that's trying to sell me something and I have to completely close IE down. This is getting really old, and I don't know how to fix it. If I recheck the proxy server box, I cannot get on the internet again. If anyone knows how to fix this, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

Hi,
We are setting up our Windows 7 PC's to use a proxy server for Internet access, as part of this we are ticking the bypass proxy for local addresses check box and entering the required server names.
What we are seeing though is if the servername has a hyphen in it's name it seems to split it over two lines., for example if the address web-mail.domainname.com is not the first in the line it gets split at the hyphen for example:
mailserver.domain.com;web-
mail.domain.com
Is this just a display issue? Or is there a problem with using hyphens in the servername?
Thanks,

Now this is really doing my head in. The regular zoom setting for Internet explorer is 100%, but I find the screen?s way too small at those settings for me to read the text properly. The best setting for me is 200%, but the thing keeps on resetting itself back to 100% forcing me to keep on going back to put it back to 200% again. Is there any way to lock the zoom settings to what I want rather than having to keep on resetting it?

I have just upgraded from IE6 to IE7 on PC with XP and SP2.
Everything works fine, except I always get the message that my security settings are at risk!
When I click on "fix it for me", the settings are not stored.
When I try to set the security settings to the default settiings then click OK, again the settings
are not stored.
This is very irritating and will cause me to go back to IE6, which is a bit annoying when my laptop uses IE7.
Can anyone help me to store my security settings, it seems so easy when you read the Help info!
