Internet Explorer giving problems.

Q: Internet Explorer giving problems.

I have Windows Vista + all updates.

IE: giving problems.

It feezes! I can open other tabs, but that particular tab will stay frozen and be unresponsive.
The only way to shut down is forcefully.

I couldn't find any updates for it on Windows.com.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer giving problems.

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've never posted on a help forum before, so please bear with me.

I have a Dell Studio 1749 laptop, running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.


Windows Explorer is not working. That is, Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer. It seemed like every forum I already checked this confused people. The only way I am able to communicate with you fine folks is to manually run Firefox using the Task Manager interface. Here are the things I have tried, and the things that I am incapable of trying, and why:

1.) I tried booting in safe mode. Windows Explorer still would not work.

2.) I tried booting with only the bare necessities through System Configuration (msconfig) by selecting Diagnostic Startup, but the problem still occurred when I would boot to my desktop.

3.) I tried doing a system restore to 3 days ago, before the problem ever occurred, but it simply didn't seem to take, as some software I installed just last night was still here when it booted. That was a weird one.

4.) I tried rebooting with a chkdsk /r, but I could not get this to work because in order to set that up, you need to be able to run the command prompt with administrative privileges, which I cannot because Windows Explorer is not working. (I feel that maybe there is some secret way to do a chkdsk without needing the command prompt, but I couldn't find instructions anywhere.)

5.) I tried uninstalling the software that I believe to be the culprit, which happens to be Skype. Last night I received some pictu... Read more

Hello... A few things first: I'm 14 years old... I have never taken computer classes - I teach myself everything by using google ... But I have good experience of fixing problems I run into on my computer.... I can follow instructions you give me.

This is a weird issue that needs to get fixed. We have 2 accounts on our computer. We have Internet Explorer and Firefox installed. Internet explorer works perfectly on my account but on my moms account - when she tries to go to any website it says:
Internet Explorer cannot display the web page.

On my account when I open firefox I get this message before it opens:

Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.

We need help! We do not wish to pay for Tech Support as I am good at fixing stuff that happens to our computer. If you could help me with this issue that would be great!

Hi,
This is my first post here, so I hope that I follow all of the rules. And thanks in advance for any help. My computer has been running slow for a while, and I think one of my kids might have gone to a website that allowed some malware in. My OS is Windows XP SP3. I have noticed a few things, 1. Had a problem with Adobe acrobat reader, it wouldn't update for some reason, and couldn't open PDF files for a while, after uninstalling and reinstalling several times, I think it is now working. Also noticed more recently when working in MS Word 03 every once in a while it won't let me save files. Now I am noticing that when I have Internet Explorer open for a while, IE tries to pop open a new window, to which the IP address is blocked by K9 web protection 91.212.226.6 is the IP. After googling this IP address, I found a few posts leading me to think there might be a trojan kicking around on my pc. I have run MBAM and Hijackthis in an attempt to find the culprit, but MBAM comes up clean, and I can't find it on Hijackthis. Any help woould be appreciated.
Thanks!

Hello

This is my first time registering for one of these kinds of forums, so I'm not familiar with protocol. I'll just explain what the problem is.

I noticed last night, when I was trying to transfer photos from my cell phone to my laptop, that every time I tried to copy the pictures and move them, windows explorer would crash. I gave up, and today the problems started to get worse. The audio keeps turning off and on, and windows explorer is still crashing, but now my entire laptop slows down every time I open it. I already ran CCleaner and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in safe mode, but halfway through the anti-malware scan my computer just turned off. Also, I installed ProcessExplorer, but I didn't see anything that looks weird, but I'm not very familiar with different processes. I'm not sure what's going on anymore, but I'd really appreciate some help. Thanks!

I got to install Shadow Explorer today only for testing and now I found I've got a 'Z' drive at my computer drive list. When I clicked it to see, it reads that (translation from Portuguese) 'Z:\ might refer to a not available location. It can be at a hard drive in this computer or in a network. Verify if the drive is correctly inserted or if you are connected to the Internet or to a network and try again. If the drive cannot be found, the information contained could be found at somewhere else' and I cannot access it by any other way
 
I don't know if Z:\ is part of Shadow Explorer or not (it appeared today after it was installed) and I don't know if this is something from the software, or a virus, or someone trying to get into my network or some kind of trick Windows is doing...

Good morning,
This may be a common error and a probably easy one to solve. But since I am not a computer expert I need your help please.
When I run the Network Diagnostics for Windows XP, it shows:
"Windows cannot connect to the internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP.
This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer.
Check the firewall settings for the HTTP Port (80); HTTPS Port (443) and FTP Port (21).

I would like to clarify that I have not changed the firewall settings. This problem appeared after a run a deep MSE and showed me that I was infected with bacdoor:win32/cycbot.B.

Apparently MSE cleaned and removed the mentioned virus. The rest of the computer is working just fine but I cannot get it to the internet.

I do know for a fact that I have internet connection, since I have an network and I am writing you from another computer within the network.

Will someone be able to help me????? Please????

I have done hijack this so many times I can't count. I've done killbox, I've run my ad/spyware scans, I've done registry repair, I've done registy first aid I have done my virus scans too

I tried to uninstall and reinstall my IE and and MSN explorer and I don't think it even UNinstalled. I reinstalled using a disc I got with my computer but it didn't do anything different. Still acted the same. This started about a week and a half ago. I have emptied my prefetch, my temp folders and my cache thingie. No change tho.
Hopefully someone can help?

Hello. First off I will not be able to access safe mode, as I do not have the password needed for it.

For my problems, when I first notied them, windows explorer had crashed, and I lost teh taskbar, and all Icons, although programs still worked, and could be started via task viewer. Using that to try to restart explorer wouldn't work. I then restarted the comuter, and explorer caused a message box to pop up saying that it had caused errors and neded to be shut down. In addition, whenever I try to run internet explorer, it brings up an error message saying that it will be shut down and asks for an error message to be sent. If you elect to restart it afterwards, it always brings up the same error, although if you ignore this, you can continue like normal. I fiddled around and got explorer.exe to run, but it would crash as soon as you tried to use it, so while I had it up, I used processexploer to track doen its threads, and I found one that was attatched to qanqdo.dll, and it was using most of the processing used by explorer.exe. I used process explorer to kill that thread, and after that, explorer seemed to work, until after a computer restart. After I got it to work, I ran Hijack this, which for some reason wouldn't let me save a log, so I had to write the lines that looked suspicious. Here they are:

I am trying to verify the contents of two folders on my network using Windows Explorer.  I will attached a screenshot as soon as they verify my account.
In the left pane, is my original folder selected (\\NAS02-4DD\usbshare1-2\Archive\Metal Building\A & S\Drawings\NSDrawings) and then I right click and hit properties to see the file count and size of the folder.

In the right pane is the copied folder selected (\\NAS02-4DD\Archives\0Arch\Metal Buildings\A & S\Drawings\NSDrawings) doing the same thing.

You can see what the properties are by the two respective NSDrawings Properties windows.  They do not match.  However, if you physically count the files, and even look in the bottom left corner of each window (after I hit CtrlA) you will see there
are indeed 902 files in each folder.  I have re-booted all 3 machines associated with these files, and can not get them to ever read the same when I view the properties of each folder.
This is a HUGE problem when it comes to trying to verify if my files have indeed copied in full from users computers to a new N.A.S. unit.

Is there a solution or other way to verify this information without having to open each folder and view its' contents manually?  I am going to be moving about 8TB of information around, and all of it needs to be verified after moving.

Thank you.

I recently noticed that the system was trying to do 7 updates every day at closedown, and found that update was giving a return code of 800736b3.

I have run SURT several times, and it doesn't seem to give any results (or should I be looking somewhere else?).

I ran sfc /scannow and extracted the results and they are in sfcdetails.txt (attached). SFC said there were some files it couldn't fix, even though sfcdetails.txt says it has fixed all of them.

CBS.zip is much too big to upload using the paperclip - is there another way?

I tried restoring to an earlier restore point, and unfortunately all the attempted updates have flushed my list of restore points - and the oldest few all give me a return code of x00000022.

Hi, i have some problem with my IE 7 recently.
When i surf some sites, mostly hotmail. I always get the message "object moved here". So when i click on a page, it will direct me to a page that writes "object moved here" and then i'll need to click on the word "here" before i can access my page.

Recently, i cant seem to see all the images and yes, i can't see all the smilies and icons on the post thread now, which is wierd and i get this message when i'm surfing the net at times:

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

which i find it wierd because my messenger is still able to connect and my brother's computer which uses the same connection is also able to connect but my internet just doesn't seem to be able display the webpage.

hope to hear from you soon.

A:IE 7 giving problems

Hi bearbear,

please try running IE7 without addons to see if the same happens:

- Click Start -> Run -> type:
iexplore -extoff
- Click OK
- Test with a few sites to see it the same problem occurs...please bear in mind that when you run IE with no addons, some website will cease to work as normal if they depend on certain addons. Ignore any new problems, just try to concentrate on the original issue and post back your findings please.

If that doesn't give any results, it may be an idea to temporary disable your firewall for a little bit and run IE in its normal mode. Some firewalls include features which affect how webpages load and are displayed so it could be a configuration problem. Remember to re-enable your firewall when you have finished testing.

Have you previously upgraded from IE6 to version 7? If yes, did these problem used to happen previously?

When I view the status of the Local area connection, it shows that there are packets being sent and received to and from both pcs. But I CANNOT see the win XP pc in my network as I am not on the existing network with it?

A:LAN giving problems?

what you mean you can not see?
can you ping the other pc?
is firewall configured and network detection and file sharing on?
if you type "\\[computername]" (or ip) does it work?
does they have good ip configuration?

Hello,
1st time post for me, and hope I am in correct area. Have 2000pro and am connected by Comcast cable. Two days ago, knocked off of Internet Explorer. After 3 calls to comcast said cause not by them, thought maybe had to do with drivers, which I know nothing. Unplugged modem and router several times which seemed to work for awhile. But when I closed IE to go to a different browser, knocked off of all again, and unable to reconnect. Unplugged modem and router, left alone overnight and then seemed OK until I closed IE. SAme problem. Don't think it is drivers.
I am on now after leaving unpluggecd overnight then reconnect now and seems OK. Do not want to chance closing IE to go elsewhere until problem solved. If this is not the correct forum would you please advise correct one. I would be grateful for any help and would like if you would send to my e-mail
Thanks,

My problem is as follows, in Internet explorer I cannot right click anything, to save pictures ect...So no saving my own pictures from FB things of this nature. Also my computer lags severely at times, I know that it is an mediocre laptop, but slow at times is an understatement. Now given the rules that I read...I preformed the following actions, a complete scan of my computer with AVG Free in safe mode and in normal start modes. A scandisk, and a hijack this scan along with running crap cleaner and saving my logs from AVG & Hijack this. I also put a firewall on my computer as an upgrade from Windows Firewall, I installed Zone Alarm....I have both the Hijack and AVG logs that I can attach...If there are any further steps I have missed please let me know

I have Internet Explorer 8 on my PC. I am running Windows XP SP3. When I go to web sites, the sites always give me an exclamation inside a yellow triangle telling me there are errors. Also whe I go to sites with video, the video will not load. I have tried to upgrade and that did not help. I tried to remove explorer and re-install it, and that did not help.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Rob, I also run XP Pro SP 3 and find Internet Explorer 8 buggy. Be sure your flash player is current. Internet Explorer 7 seems solid. I also use Firefox, good fast browser with Google. In my opinion having two browsers installed is the only way to go in the case one fails. Best of luck...

Hi, there.
This is about IE 6.0.

System:
Win98 SE
384Mb
8 Gb HD, 4Gb free.

I recently installed IE 6.0, with good results. Shortly thereafter ( a couple of weeks) I was informed (by Critical update program) that I was missing a crucial security update for 6.0 and, fool that I am , I downloaded and installed it.

Doom and gloom --- IE no longer closes properly. I have to
bring up the task manager and close the program. There is a 15-20 second delay before the close actually happens. If one brings up the task manager again, the system goes berserk - BSOD occurs and shutdown will not occur. Cycling the power is the only way out.

I have tried to uninstall 6.0 with no luck.

My goal is to go back to IE 5.5.

Are there any registry hacks to convince 98 that there is no Explorer installed?

I am anxiously awaiting enlightment.

Every time I go on the Internet thru Internet Explorer it closes with this window that reads"IE has stopped working " A program caused the program to stop working correctly.Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available".

Then down by the time on my taskbar a window opens up that reads..IE was closed by Data Execution Prevention.

What does this Data Execution Prevention do and how can I stop this from happening all the time?

A:Internet Explorer problems

To answer your question about Data Execution Prevention, its actually something in Windows that stops harmful or unwanted code from running. That being said, I wouldn't mess with it, by this I mean turning it off. It works when its supposed to, that isn't your problem here I don't think. To turn this off requires going into the registry and other cpl changes. What version of internet explorer are you running? What tool bars are you running if any in internet explorer? if you are running IE 7 or 8, try to reset it. Go to tools - internet options - advanced tab - reset. After its done resetting close out of everything and try IE again, if that doesn't work let me know. It could be Google desktop or some other program running on your computer. If you are running IE8, and nothing else worked, i would try just uninstalling IE8 because it doesn't talk well with xp you should go back to 6 or 7.let me know if any of this did the trick, if it didn't (like if you have IE 6) i have a few other things up my sleeve.

Please get Spybot S&D to clear out any spyware.

Install the program and open it.

Before doing any scanning click Online and Search for Updates .
Put a check mark at and install all updates .
Click Check for Problems nd when the scan is finished have Spybot fix all it finds marked in red .
Then after reboot :
Download 'Hijack This! http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the " scan " button will change into a " save log " button.
