Preferred Solution: Pages will not open in Internet Explorer They allways open in Firefox!

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.)

Are you using IE8? Some websites aren't totally compatible with all browsers or all versions of IE.

Okay this is driving me up the wall. I bought a new laptop a few weeks ago, and it originally came with IE8. I started to have trouble with it, everyday it would randomly act up and not load web pages for me. Ex. amazon.com, tvshowsondvd.com, and cdbaby.com.

Google worked just fine. But I would try to go to some of these sites and my browser would literally freeze. And it's always these websites! But only certain times of the day, it's not always constant! The webpage loads partially and then just hangs, as if it can't load the rest of the page. The browser will not let me open another tab and I am forced to end the process.

I got fed up, uninstalled IE8 and downloaded IE9. Guess what, IE9 does the exact same thing with the exact same webpages. What is going on? I'm getting really frustrated with this. I tried the same web pages with Google Chrome and they work absolutely just fine.
 

A:Internet Explorer Will Not Open Web Pages, Freezes

So I uninstalled Adobe Flash Player, on a whim, and now my browser works fine, no more freezing. But I need flash player to use YouTube and such. Any suggestions? Maybe just a clean install?

Hi,
I've got this annoying problem, which I've tried to patiently deal with with my Verizon Tech Support guy, but like usual, it came out without any substantial result.

Here is the problem:
A desktop and a laptop, both running xp; a westell versalink dsl modem;
both machines can ping with site names, ie www.google.com
can ping with ip addresses
and return with 0% LOSS
checked:
1. browsers are not "work offline"
2. tried turning off my firewall, but the same results
3. tried turning off antivirus (Avest)
4. is obtaining ip address and DNS server address automatically

But whenever trying to access websites through browsers, it would be kept loading, and the status bar would say: "website found, waiting for reply" (something like that...)

Tried to work with Safe Mode with Networking, nothing still nothing worked.

Reset the modem, and tried to connect again.
The problem remains.

Phoned up a neighbor and tried to use his wireless connection on my laptop. Everything works with his connection. But not mine.

Then the Tech Support guy told me that he has consult with a network engineer and their solution is that, it should not be my machines, not their fault (who knows), not my account... it appears to be my dsl modem. According to him, it seems to be that the modem is malfunctioning and that it cannot convert network messages into webpages... And his suggestion is to replace my modem.

But when I hung up. I was thinking about what he said, an... Read more

Hi,

I noticed yesterday that i can't open any web page link in IE.
I reset tnetwork adapter, ran cccleaner, reg mechanic, spybot.
I also see that the desktop gadgets are not connected.
Also ran comodo internet security premium, turned it off etc.

The last thing i installed was google earth yesterday and that
wouldnt connect for some reason, that was the first time but
i took no nitice as i thought it was an issue just in google earth.
I uninstalled that also.

I clicked dignose connection problem in the blank ie page but
resetting the adapter doesn't do anything either.

I uninstalled java to see if i could update it as a tester,
But when trying to install it again it wouldn't connect to the net
so i did a system restore to get java back.

Think there's a few issues with different applications connectiing.
Thankfully everything is working in firefox or i wouldn't be here.

Any advice appreciated, could it be a recent update or maybe some kind of virus?
Should i run hijack this?

Thanks later

I just tryed to run hjt but got this messege

Hi:
 
I don't know what the heck is going on but during the last week or so neither Internet explorer nor Firefox have been working.  What I mean is that when I click on the shortcuts they don't/won't open. 
 
 
Actually that isn't right, Firefox did work in Safe Mode but when I went to the normal mode it wan't working.  Then when I went back to Safe Mode it stopped working.  As for Internet Explorer browser, it does open halfway but then it's only a blank page where you would normally see the homepage or that error message about checking your connection. 
 
I have uninstalled an re-installed numerous times but to no avail and it's driving me crazy!
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recently, my IE stopped working(IE8 with xp pro). When I click on either the desktop icon I get the hour glass for a second and then...nothing.

I can open up the task manager and keep an eye on the processes, and I can see iexplorer pop up for a second but then it immediately goes away.

I have an ExpressGate on my ASUS Mobo that can connect to the internet just fine, so it doesn't seem to be hardware or server related.
I tried downloading Firefox. When I open Firefox I can get the window to pop up, but a blank page saying it cannot connect.

No program that I have(antivirus/spybot/malware bytes/etc.) can update or access the internet.

I've cleaned out all the temp files/cookies/etc. Tried resetting the IE. Tried running it with no-addons. I downloaded a new copy of IE8 and installed it, and still nothing.

Last bit of info, the only thing that I can think that happened out of the ordinary is a few days earlier I had a "bad bios check sum", but I put my mobo's cd in and it corrected itself. This happened maybe three times, but then it seemed to go away. It wasn't until a few days later that the IE quit working.

When I try running Internet Explorer, it opens up as it should, but it shows "connecting" on the tab. It never connects, clicking on the "X" to stop it doesn't stop it from trying to connect. Clicking on the tools opens up the drop down, but everything is grayed out, so I can't check the internet options to see if the settings are good.

While trying to fix my wife's computer system (downgrading from Win8 to Win7); I was web surfing through some various websites for advise on how to do some things.  Next, what appeared to be a blank window opened up behind the Chrome browser I was using at the time, and when I minimized Chrome to see what was behind  it, it was a totally red screen of about 1/4 sized window entitled,"This cannot be right." and stated that if I remain on that website I could contract Malware.  So, I went to task manager, thinking I was doing the right thing and shutting down that window from there.  I did not think anything more about it as it was late and went to bed.
However, this morning, I booted up my system. I was able to get my email ok.  Then,  I noticed that my Avast update popped up , I updated it and then it opened up Chrome to verify that the updated was successful, but Chrome never came up. It just timed out.  So, I tried to open up Firefox and also Internet Explorer. They both had the same result.  I have no ability to access the internet except via Safe Mode boot.  This is how I am posting this message to you now. I should have changed to topic to , "Chrome,Firefox,and IE do not load up while in normal boot".  Because, I can bring up the program, but it just hangs up and/or times out rendering me unable to access the internet in normal mode.

I have a windows 7 msi laptop that until recently has had no issues.
The past several weeks however, Internet Explorer closes unexpectedly multiple times when I am online. Also, I cannot open PDF files and Adobe Reader will not reinstall. iTunes won't open, and pictures won't open when I double-click them.

No error messages have shown up...the programs simply just do not open. I have the latest version of iTunes, and I am unable to download any version of a PDF file reader, but I previously had Nuance.

I have NO CLUE what to do or how to begin trying to resolve this issue, and most of my work files are PDF so this is becoming a huge problem...please help.

A:Internet Explorer closes unexpectedly, Adobe Reader won't open, iTunes won't open....

Hello and welcome to TSF,
The first step would be to try a different browser and see if your online problems keeps happening. If you are a hardcore IE fan, see if there is an update for it. As far as your pictures and files are concerned, it might need a simple solution like Disk Defrag. Many people overlook this, but hey it works! You can also do a Disk Cleanup (also built into Windows) which clears some unnecessary junk.
Good Luck!

Hi All,
I've been racking my brain trying to see what is going on and I cannot for the life of me figure it out. So I was hoping that someone on here might be able to help. Here's my situation. As I mentioned in the title something is going wrong with internet explorer and it opens in the task manager but is not open on the screen (although I do often see a little flash of something like a window popping up every now and then but only a flash then it's gone). Also I will click on normal links (like cnn.com after searching google for "cnn" and it will send me to some random website, usually trying to sell me something). Finally after some invesitgation it looks like there is a false iexplorer.exe file on my computer that got there somehow, and I think is causing issues. Oh and my windows firewall and symantec have been disabled. I have scanned with malwarebytes, adaware, spybot, and a few others with some each of them finding things but nothing has been fixed. 
 
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance,

My computer (OS Windows XP Home) has been running rather slow and recently I have not been able to access any internet sites. I have successfully connected to more than one wireless network and had 100% signal strength. When opening internet explorer, my preset homepage has disappeared and internet explorer is attempting to connect to errordns.com in the lower left corner of the window. The address bar remains blank. The explorer window then continues to constantly connect to errordns.com as if I were clicking Go on the right side of the address bar numerous times and overwhelming internet explorer. I am not able to access anything else which requires an internet connection, such as limewire or my AIM icon. I have attempted to change my homepage address in the internet connections options but the same repeating connection to errordns.com occurs. I do not have an up-to-date antivirus system currently.

Please do not edit the logs, though I'm sure you meant well. To rid yourself of those O18 entries, you can uninstall Logitech's Desktop Messenger. It's not really necessary.

If you choose to disable to uninstall the Logitech Desktop Messenger you will not receive any messages about updates to your products. However we will be posting on in the downloads sections of the Logitech site. So if you choose to monitor the Logitech website as an alternative, you will be able to access the latest updates.

When I try to open any pages in IE7 it defaults to http:/// and gives the following error message:

I have recently cleared my computer of malwares and spywares using comboboxfix, superantispyware, and several other suggested fixes. Afterwards, all of my system services were turned off. I also had to reinstall Office 2003 (which now works). But the online help no longer works. I'm assuming this is related to the fact that IE7 also does not work.

I've been using Windows 7 since it came out, and up to a month or so ago, whenever a program opened a web page for me, it opened in Firefox, my preferred browser.

For the last few weeks -- possibly since I installed SP1 for Win7 --- web pages now open in IE rather than Firefox.

I'm not talking about htm files that I open myself from Windows Explorer. I have set both htm and html files to open in Firefox, and they do. And I have Firefox set to check that it's the primary browser, and IE set to NOT check.

So pages opened from Windows Explorer work right, but when a web page is opened by a program, e.g. I click on a url in a PDF document, or in a program's "About" screen, the web page opens in IE. And it's only been doing that for the last month or so.

Did SP1 change something? Can anyone tell me what register entry or option I need to set to change it back? Thank you.

A:How to get web pages to open with Firefox?

IMO, that is a choice you cannot make as, in the software it is pre-defined to open in Internet Explorer.

You may try,(CAUTION: i have'nt tried this!) to uninstalling Internet Explorer.

Additionally, typing in certain addresses simply won't load where I know the page should work, such as certain links on microsoft.com. Furthermore, I have enabled Automatic Updates and it tells me that it is not enabled even though it clearly is in the settings and going to the update page through internet explorer simply does not work. I have read through various other forums here at bleepingcomputer.com and followed their instructions but nothing has fixed the problem so I figured I'd post as well and start fresh.

Hello,

I think my machine is in a bit of a trouble and I ran out of ideas how to fix it so I thought someone here might help me out.

I am running Windows 7 pro.

So I got a trojan malware thing from a website last night, i don't know how because Avast is running all the time. I booted in safe mode, ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware software and it got rid of it, or at least I think it did because now my pc is running fine and all those POP UPS (your computer is under attack of virus, run antivirus software, etc) from the malware are all gone. After that I ran the Avast antivirus scan on my C: drive and it didn't find anything.

None of the browsers are working, expect Opera USB ([email protected] : download your free version of mobile Opera:) which doesn't require installation and it just runs of the HD. The other browsers won't open any web page. Skype, utorrent

I uninstalled and installed all of them several times, and nothing. I uninstalled my wireless adapted, thinking that it might be the settings and that will reset everything, and that didn't work either, i ran CC clean, which deleted all the cookies and web history from Chrome, IE, and firefox... nothing. Now even tweetdeck won't run properly.

What should I do ?

A:IE8,Chrome,and Firefox won't open web pages

First off 3rd party programs like tweetdeck most likely will cause more problems than there worth. Utorrunt is a very good way to get all those bad things you had on your computer. I don't recommend using a torrent of any kind. Next because you can go on line with Opera download and install Super Anti Spyware, up date it and run. Also run again MAM in normal mode. Next open I.E. and go to Tools/options/connection and Lan setting. Make sure automatic detect setting is checked and the Lan is unchecked. If for what ever reason none of your browsers work there is another way we can go.
After all this get back to us Because there is more information.

If I connect via VPN (HotspotShield) I can access all websites with IE.
Downgrading and reinstalling IE and resetting security levels also didn't help.
I connect via local area connection with IPv4 and enter additional login information in a website that loads automatically. IP address and DNS server address are also obtained automatically. I don't use a proxy.

Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
Internet Explorer 8 (same with 9)

What kind of weird problem is this and what can I do about it?

I have no Idea why it's doing this, but just recently firefox sometimes won't open videos or pages on YouTube. When I click on the video thumbnail, instead of going to that video, it opens up a download box, this also can happen if I click on other things in YouTube, and if I visit anyones channel (including my own) and click on, let's say favorites, it wonlt load them at all. I've also tried this in Opera, Safari and Intenet Explorer and I get no problems with those, it's just firefox and it's only on youtube where I get these problems. I don't really want to not use Firefox anymore, it's my favorite browser. I have Adblock Plus and Video Download Helper installed on it, but I don't think they could be causing any problems becuase I've had them on there for a while and this problem has only just recently come up. I'm on windows XP with Service Pack 2 and I'm using the free avast antivirus. I've defragged my HD, run a registry scan, cleared my history, cleared my cookies, cleared my tempory files, run an a virus scan and nothing is infected, but the problem is still there, so like I said I have no Idea what's going on. I also included a couple of screenshots of the download box that sometimes appears, the one on the left appears when I try to watch a video, the one on the right came up when I clicked on the YouTube logo.

A:Firefox won't open some YouTube videos and pages

It could be something with the firefox settings, if the videos display fine in other browsers your video codec seem to be ok. You could try to rename your firefox profile, because then it will load default setting.

A:Firefox links on web pages wont open

Try to right click on link and select open link in new tab or you could select new window..and see what happens? do you get the same problem?
I checked out the link you are talking about and it seems to redirect you to a file hosting site (a website used to upload files, so you could share with others) anyhow it worked fine for me maybe your firewall or anti-virus software could be blocking you from this site...post back with update on your problem if you please could..

Hi everybody

I picked up some nasty malware. AVG was updating and suddenly everything just fell apart.

I can't run any installation programs regardless of the extension or name. I've tried to install Rkill and MalwareBytes with absolutely no luck. It defaults to needing to be unblocked in the properties and no matter what compatibility mode I use it will not run. I get a 1084 error when I try to open the security center. In the taskbar I have an Action Center alert that says 1 Important Message and 3 Total Messages. The Action Center will not open at all. I do not have access to a USB key as I am not home, but I will be Tuesday evening. Any help would be infinitely appreciated.

Other notes I forgot: I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and I am constantly getting errors that Windows can't load and needs to be repaired. It runs and restarts, sometimes being repaired and other times not.

Thanks a lot
Jared

A:Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

An update.

I've tried running MalwareBytes and RKill from a flash drive which is also not working. Windows also ends up unable to load, the startup repair runs and things work fine. Not long after Windows tries to update and then it becomes unable to load again and the startup repair runs again.

I tried running a registry fix for the .exe problem and I get an error stating that the registry is being used even when no programs are running and I am in safe mode.

Hope this information helps
thanks
Jared
