Solved: Internet Explorer 7 beta 3 MAJOR page-caching problem

Q: Solved: Internet Explorer 7 beta 3 MAJOR page-caching problem

So I have Internet Explorer 7 beta 3 RC1 or w/e and recently it stopped caching my pages at all. I've set the amount of disc space to use to 70 MB and to let it Automatically check for updates of pages, and I don't delete the temporary files, yet whenever I go to GMail there is a noticeable pause on The Loading page. Normally it skips that page since it's already been cached, but nowawadays it stays there for like 1 minute. It doesn't cache any other page either, I've tried it with Google, my blog, TH, TSG, etc. Any help? I want it to cache properly so I can reduce wait times when browsing.
I've tried clearing all my temporary files (temp files, cookies, history, etc.), reinstalling Internet Explorer 7, and rebooting the computer and such but no luck.
Below is my HJT log if it helps. Thanks guys.

Preferred Solution: Solved: Internet Explorer 7 beta 3 MAJOR page-caching problem

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Solved: Internet Explorer 7 beta 3 MAJOR page-caching problem


I've moved this to Web and Email for more response

Just to put your mind at ease, its not just IE7. I have IE6 on XP home, and it does it for me on Gmail. It just sits there, but if you click Refresh, it finds the page. I wonder if there has been an increase in users.

I know that they've changed their page layout recently, so maybe that has someting to do with it.

Or have I misread this post, and its with all websites? I'll see if someone can take a look at your HT log.

A:[solved]Problem with Internet Explorer home page

Read other 16 answers

A friend of mine recently downloaded the Internet Explorer Beta 3, and the installation all went normally. After restarting, however, IE browser will not open. That is to say, a window appears to open briefly, and then it closes. If it is not possible for my friend to get it running normally, is it possible for him to roll back to Internet Explorer 6, which he had previously?

A:Internet Explorer Beta 3 problem

Hi Nathan, and Welcom to TSF!

I presume that your friend is also using Windows Xp with Sp2 [hopefully], and he did a 'System Restore' prior to intalling IE 7 Beta 3.

If he did, just do a System Restore back to before IE7 was installed, and that should fix it.

Now the best way to get to System Restore is:.... Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
Once in there, click the box 'Restore my computer to an earlier time' > next > now in the left hand pane there will be a Calendar, select one of the dates that's in Bold type prior to installing Internet Explorer 7, [but not too far back though] click on it > OK. The computer will shutdown and reboot. Now once its powered up again, you will be able to see the desktop, but it won't have any icons on it for about 3 minutes, so don't panic. A panel will come up telling you that the system has been restored to the date you selected, just go OK, and everything will be back to before IE7 was installed.
One word of advice, if his anti-virus program [especially AVG] had done recent updates; then, he'll have to download them again. The same will apply to any Windows? updates too.

Try it and see what happens, and if it doesn't, there are other ways that we can rectify this issue.

Post back with the results.

Kind Regards,
Dave T.

I have been having malware problems with IE 7 and would like to uninstall it completely and revert to IE 6. I've googled how to do this, but the method described doesn't apply to me. I am unable to find the entire list of Windows Updates in Add/Remove programs (all I see are 2 updates for Windows Media Format Runtime and Windows Media Player 10) and therefore cannot uninstall it.

Can anyone give me some instructions on how to get rid of IE 7, its been nothing but the bane of my life these days.



A:Solved: Uninstall Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2

Perhaps in the Add/Remove area, click "Show Updates" at the top of the box. This might make IE7 show up.

The following does not work:



In both cases the reason is the same ...

Hi all, just thought i'd post to warn you all of my experience with norton 2010 beta for win 7 32 bit.I've always been a norton user but i must report that when i installed it on my win 7 32 bit it slowed my system down that much that i was pulling my hair out.Then when i tried to uninstall via the norton removal tool it reported that it had worked but it was still present in my software list.i then tried to remove it via the control panel and it gets stuck on 20% and after several attempts i gave up and just decided to reinstall it again but no luck........before install it tries to uninstall the previous version itself and gets stuck at 20%.I am now left with no AV and am reluctant to install another one for fear of conflict issues.The only thing i can do now is reinstall the whole OS, a right PITA!I agree that system security is important and it will always take some amount of resources but seriously my system was that slooooow with norton that any advantages gained in new tech/OS h/ware were fully negated;apart from that win7 32 bit runs wonderfully smooth and fast for me.Has anyone else had similar experience with norton product and what did you do to resolve the problem?

A:Internet Explorer Display Page Problem

You don't say which version of ie your using
Use Alt+HA or Gear symbol on the top right and About ie

You can take a screen shot of the pages so we might see the issue see the links above my signature for how if you need too,
I wouldn't recommend changing any settings in the area you refer to insure they are all set to the default levels
On any version of ie you can use the F12 key to bring up developer tools and switch browser mode or document modes,
ie11 is different than other prior versions but there are little icons on the left column and if you scroll down that list you'll see one that is Emulations
This will show you document mode which I would try first and switch it to a lower number like 10-9

The user agant string should be switched at last result usually document mode will resolve any display issues,
ie10-9-8 are a little more straight forward than ie11,

A:Problem with Internet Explorer home page

Hi - Welcome to TSG!!

I've moved your post into a thread of your own so please reply here.

Download the new version of Hijackthis.

Go to Control Panel, add/remove programs and remove MsgPlus it is not recommended as it is bundled with Lop.com

Restart in safe mode

Open Windows Explorer. Go to Tools, Folder Options and click on the View tab. Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK".

Now empty these folders:
C:\Documents and Settings\all profiles\local settings\temp
NOTE: all profiles means all of the profiles on the machine

Delete these files:
C:\Documents and Settings\123\Application Data\l??w?.exe

Empty your recycle bin.

Reboot and post another log with the new version of hijackthis.

I was wondering if someone could help. I've tried everything, and I'm still coming up short.

Just about a week ago, when I try to start Internet Explorer, my start page is changed to some pornagraphic page. When I go to Internet Options, I change my homepage to google or something, but it doesn't stay as that. The next time I start IE, it's back to that old page again. The name of the start page is: mkMSITStore:C:\spe\start.chm::/start.html
This startpage is pointing to a folder it automatically creates on my harddrive. If I delete the folder, I get the common IE error page that comes up when a site cannot load. Also, when I try to navigate on the internet, a site called heretofind.com intercepts everything and I am unable to use the internet. It will not allow navigation to any other pages. It pretends to be a helpful searchpage, but of course we know otherwise, and that it is something malicious.

Here is what I've tried to do to fix it. I of course ran McAfee, but that didn't do anything. So I ran AdAware, and it found a couple files in the registry that was probably causing the problem. When I delete the files, everything is fine, and IE works, but only temporarily. These files keep popping back, and the same problem starts all over again. I am able to find the files that are creating the problem, or at least I think are creating the problem, and when I delete them, everything works like normal, but only temporarily. I can't s...

A:[SOLVED] Internet Explorer 8 - page cannot be displayed

Try enabling compatibility mode. It is the broken page icon next to the refresh button on the toolbar. Here?s a good resource from the IEBlog that talks about compatibility mode in detail if you?d like to learn more: http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/200...lity-view.aspx

If that doesn?t work, run IE in No Add-ons Mode. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) - If this fixes the issue, then go to Tools -> Manage Add-ons and enable the add-ons one by one to find which one was causing the problem.

You can also try resetting Internet Explorer's settings by going to Tools > Internet Options and then the "Advanced" tab, and click "Reset..."

If you?re still not having any luck, I recommend you reinstall IE8 on your system.

I hope this solves your issue!

Sad to know that okay you can try this method.

Download the program (LSPfix & Winsockfix) and run it. It should restore the LSP Problems which has been caused by the removal of Spyware etc. I had a similar problem caused by Antivirus software sometime back.

Try downloading LSPfix and run it



if it doesn't work download 'Winsockfix' and run it.



Hope this helps.

I have Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11. I have one web site (marketwatch.com/watchlist) that I use frequently but have not been able to access for about 2 weeks. The web page will partially open and then stops. When I try to scroll on the web page or open a new window, either nothing happens or I get a message that the web page is not responding. Strangely enough I can open the main marketwatch.com site and read articles, etc with no problem. I contacted tech support at the web site and they can't find a problem with their web site and suggested I install Moxilla as my internet browser.

Here's what I've tried:
I tried listing the marketwatch.com/watchlist site in the compatibility mode but it didn't help.
I cleared the cookies off my computer but that didn't help.
I disabled my NIS firewall and tried to bring up the web page but that didn't work.

I'm still suspicious that there's a problem with that particular web page since I have no trouble opening other web pages.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
If you have a watch list that usually means you have to sign into the site ?
Using another browser might help to see if you've been banned from the site

To properly clear the cache Use Alt+TD or Gear symbol Safety/ Delete browser history,

I have Internet Explorer 6 on a windows 2000 machine and on a windows 98 machine. On the Windows98 machine, If I am in a website where a link is to open another "blank page" or window, it works just fine, but on the windows 2000 machine it won't do anything at all. (These same sites work just fine in Netscape, Opera and Mozilla on the windows 2000 machine).

For a sample: go to:
click on the Tickets.com logo -- it should open a separate page
and leave the original cleveland opera page open. It works just fine on everything else, but IE on this machine.

To correct the problem you would need to contact the webmaster for each page it occurs on, and convince them to code it correctly for every version of browser software that exists, plus every version of Java etc that each person runs.

Basically don't assume that the problem is yours, unless it actually crashed the PC on each page. You could make sure your PC is fully updated, but that will not get rid of the message in most cases either.

this answer will not help you, nor will you like it, but it could be the plain and simple truth. As far as Microsoft programs go, they are always quick to release the latest and greatest while doing little debugging (why should they, they dominate the software industry, they can simply release patches and nobody will do anything). to buy a brand new program from Microsoft is practically like beta testing, so when they actually say beta, it doesn't sound promising. I would expect it to be chock full of system-crippling bugs, as for you, I wouldn't expect that you will get yours to install until the official version is released.
