Internet Explorer Not Opening

Q: Internet Explorer Not Opening

H this is my first post here. I am running windows XP SP2, and earlier today when i rebooted my computer and tried to open I.E it did not open at all. This is very strange as it usually take IE about less then 30 seconds to open. Now i am on the internet using another browser and when i try to click on My Computer icon on the desktop, the desktop refreshes and does not open the My Computer Icon. Now it is strange because it opens exe files from desktop.

What should i do, and is there any opinons/thoughts on how to remove it? BTW i am running 2 scans, Windows Live Safety Center, and SpyHunter.

Let me know,
Thanks
Alex

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer Not Opening

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.)

Google has been redirecting, google images will only load a certain number of images and internet explorer opens randomly, when I do not even have it installed or use it. Also, phantom music/ads/speaking play when no programs or windows are open. I have run rkill, MalwareBytes and TDSS killer with no infected files being found. And that's where the extent of my knowledge runs out! You guys have helped me fix everything else, but now I finally need to post as I cannot finx this one based on other advice.

The problem is with AVG. Go into the AVG menu and remove the link scanner and IE will work again.

I guess that you are stuck with waiting for a new release of AVG to fix the problem.

My problem is two-fold. I am running Internet Explorer 5.5 and Outlook Express on a Windows 95 machine. Recently, I have been unable to double-click on my Internet Explorer icon to open it. When I right-mouse-button click on the icon and select "Open Home Page" nothing happens. However, when I right-mouse-button click and select "Open" or "Explore" it works. My other problem, which I believe is related to the first, is that when I am in Outlook Express and click on a URL in an email, internet explorer doesn't open. Any ideas?

Internet Explorer keeps opening on it's own. It opens up to 60 windows at a time. I do not even have to be using Explorer for it to start going crazy. I don't believe I downloaded anything right before it started happening. I have already tried Spy Bot, Ad-Aware, and Norton. None of them can tell that anything is wrong. I tried Panda and Housecall Anti-virus but they both freeze on my computer. Also, I can't get the MacAfee Stinger to work. I would appreciate ANY help with this annoying problem! Thanks!

Hello ims to TSF,

A couple of suggestions here:

1. Try installing Mozilla? Firefox as a web browser, and see if that helps to get you onto the Internet.
I am fairly certain that Microsoft? have ceased supporting IE6, and most websites have been upgraded to accept only the latest editions of all browsers.

2. You really need to Update your Windows? XP SP2 to SP3 + plus all the security updates; furthermore, the latest version of IE is IE8 for XP or IE9 for higher versions (like Windows?7).
There are a number of updates for Windows? XP including a newer Service Pack 3.
At a rough guess it will take you perhaps 2? hours or more depending on the speed of your Internet connection to download and install these important updates and fixes.
Not updating your Windows? XP is leaving you open to vunerability to malware/viral infections.
What Anti Virus program are you using, and when did you last; do an update of its definitions; and run a full system scan, or do you not have an AV program installed?

Please post back with this information.

Kind Regards,

Hello bleepingcomputer community. I am having a problem, but it might not be a problem, because it has only happened once. Here is the "problem". I was on a website, that AVG says is good but after i stayed on the page for a while, all of a sudden about Internet Explorer keeps re opening, i had to shut down the computer for it to stop, and it wouldn't let me end IEXPLORE.exe in the task manager. I dont know what the problem is, but im asking for some help, Piece of mind rather to make sure its not spyware/adware/malware. I have not downloaded anything recently, but just in case i would like to know.I personally think its a Virus exploit, but i need some further backup.Virus: AVG FreeFirewall: Windows Firewall~StickDude101Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

bump===========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our MRT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team...

Hi there,

I recently had various malware on my computer which I removed (at least partialy) using RKill and Malwarebytes.

I was still having trouble with my searches being redirected in IE. So I downloaded and ran the software on your preparation page ie. gmer, DeFogger etc. (I have posted the scan logs).

Although Malwarebytes is no longer finding anything harmful, neither IE nor Firefox will now open. And on trying restore the system to an earlier point (both in and out of safe mode), I'm told there have been no changes made, and the system cannot restore. Hope this is all relevent...

Many thanks,

Tom

I run XP Pro SP2 on a Sony Vaio and have suddenly lost access to Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180, as well as to Windows Explorer, Control Panel and a few of my other applications like Photoshop. When I click on them, the hard drive light comes on continuously for up to a minute, then goes out. However, MS Word/Office are thankfully OK and I've backed up all their files.

I can now only get Internet via an old version of Firefox. It was not possible to restore the system to a previous date in normal mode so I got into Safe Mode via F8 and tried there. It tries to restore but I end up with a permanent blank screen headed "System Restore". I can return to normal mode and again the same programs do not load - and that's after trying them from the task bar, desktop icons and the programs list.

The Microsoft Help Center doesn't cover the problem of complete loss of access, so I don't know where to turn to for help.

I also suspected overheating of the microprocessor (I'm sweltering in Spain) but I've now ruled that one out. And in case you wonder, it's a permanent setup - not transit damage!

I use Avast, regularly updated, so a virus shouldn't be the problem. I receive all Microsoft updates. Have I lost access to part of my hard disk perhaps? Should I install Explorer 7?

I have a strange problem. Running I.E. 6 and 7 I have a couple internal databases that require logins on different ips on our internal network for example 12.10.x.x would be one if I type the ip into the internet explorer address bar IE" http://12.10.x.x It gives me error 400 bad request. I can leave the http:// off same thing. However if I go to start run and type iexplore 12.10.x.x Boom comes right up no problem. However set a favorite and try to reaccess it does not work gives me the same error 400 bad request.

Yesterday Afternoon I logged on to the computer and started up Firefox.
As soon as It loaded many windows started popping up about a Trojan Worm and trying to show me how to fix it. At first I thought that it was pop ups. I closed all of the windows and resumed browsing the internet. After 20 seconds they all started popping up again. This time just to be safe i ran Spyware Doctor and it also showed that their was a Worm and it was in the High category.
Shocked with this I quickly ran an Intelli-Scan which just scans through the most common places viruses are found. After it finished it said that all viruses and infections were gone. But the pop ups didn't stop. So this time I ran a Full Scan and after completion it said the same thing and this time the pop ups did stop.
I thought it was all over, but for the past day and a half, Internet Explorer 7 keeps opening every 20 seconds and is getting very frustrating as I have to keep closing it and makes my computer run slow.
I don't even use IE7 as I use Firefox..
pls help.

Hello. This is my first time on this website so hopefully I am doing this correctly. I am currently using Mozilla Firefox as my default browser because there were so many pop-ups and glitches with my Internet Explorer (i.e. my wireless keyboard and mouse would not work properly with IE). However, recently, while I am on Mozilla using the internet, my Internet Explorer opens on its own directly to a pop up page. The home page (which I have set to "aboutblank" is not opening. The longer that IE is open and I dont realize it, the more tabs open with more and more pop ups. I have listed all of the sites as "Restricted SItes" but they are still able to open. I have the pop up setting as block all pop ups and it is constantly happening. I now have the IE set on "Work Offline" and for right now it is a temp fix but how can I get this to stop? I have scanned with Norton and it found nothing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as this is naturally driving me crazy!! Thanks for your time!

Try using another spyware scanner, Spybot S&D, AVG, SpyWare Terminator. As for your IE, just disable it. Simce your IE opens on its on, that tells me that you have some kind of adware or spyware on your computer and it will eventually get to Firefox.

For the past couple of weeks, when I open Internet Explorer it will freeze and eventually freeze my computer. It will work normally most of the time, but it seems to do this once in a 24 hour time span. When this happens, it will try to connect for a couple of seconds and then stops and displaying a white screen instead of my homepage and it will not let me open the Task Manager (even if I have this open before hand it won't close IE) and after about 30 seconds it completely freezes my computer and forces me to press the power button. This has even happened, just like once or twice, when I tried to open ATF Cleaner. I have ran scans with A-Squared, Malwarebytes, and SuperAntiSpyware. They have found some things but it has not fixed the problem, any suggestions?

I am using Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10, I want to open a new tab when I am searching but it will not work. I have been to Internet options and followed the instructions there but I still can not open a result in a new tab. Microsoft answers is of no help. How to work with tabs. Help me please, as I can not open a new tab in anything I want to research.

Hi there. A few days ago, I found that when I turned my computer on and started surfing the net (using google chrome) internet explorer would always open up at random times with the message, 'internet explorer cannot open display the web page' and the web address is 'javascript:clickRefresh()'. Is it possible that I have some kind of spyware/malware of some sort?

Also, this may be unrelated but this morning the moment I opened up Google chrome my monitor developed a bluish tint. Would this have anything to do with internet explorer randomly opening? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my hijack this log. Thank you.
