Any version of Internet Explorer I try will not function.

Q: Any version of Internet Explorer I try will not function.

Dear Sirs,

My name is Clifford Griffin. I just happened on this site by accident.
I sure hope you can help me.

My operating system is Windows XP SP2.

I am currently running IE version 7. But you should know that I will
experience the Identical problem while running IE v6.0.2800... or IE
v6.0.2900...!

Since my IE does not work I am using Firefox to communicate with
you.

Most of the time when I try to access the browser I get a blank
window with the following error pop-up.

"Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Included in that message is a statement that says: "To see what data
this error report contains click here." Upon clicking here I see
the following error signature:

"AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 7.0.6000.16441 ModName: kernel32.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.2945 Offset: 00012a5b"

There is also an extremely lengthy and detailed report entitled "Error
Report Contents" included, but it will not allow me to copy it.

Sometimes when I bring up the browser a window will appear just
as it should. But when I try to follow any link I get the same scenario
as explained above.

Can you help me?

Please let me know what further information you need.


Kindest Regards,

Clifford Griffin

Preferred Solution: Any version of Internet Explorer I try will not function.

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.)

Hi Clifford, welcome to TSF...

how long has the problem been present and have you tried a system restore to a date when all was well? Can you think of any downloads or any websites which were visited which may have triggered the problem?

Also, there is a chance of a malware infection so the following link may be helpful:

Finally, do you have a Windows XP installation disc?

Can anyone help me get rid of ixquick and return to the regular function?

Hello everyone!
Last night I installed Bitcomet (latest version). Well I'm done using it and I uninstalled it via programs and features. Then I rebooted. Now when I find a file on Internet explorer 7 (any kind of file really) that I want to save or open, nothing happens.

If I click on a file to download the usual Windows Prompt opens and asks me to Save/Open/Cancel and if I click Open or Save, nothing happens. This use to work fine before I installed BitComet.

I figured out the problem. When you install bit comment it ties itself to I.E. browser extension during the install. So it kinda becomes the download manager for I.E. So I need to figure out how to set this back to default since I uninstalled Bitcomet.
I set programs to default. I looked in file extensions and that looks normal. Crap this sucks!
Any ideas?

Raj

A:Internet Explorer Save/Open Function

You could try opening Internet Options in Control Panel. Click on the Programs tab and select Manage Add-Ons. It is possible that removing BitComet did not remove the reference within Internet Explorer.
Other than that may be worth checking your File Associations and make sure BitComet is not set as the default application for opening specific file extensions.

There is a problem in which Flash Player stops once during the operation of the business portal currently operating based on Flash Player, so please contact us.

As a result of the verification, it is confirmed that it is not related to Adobe's Flash Player and is related to the function of Shockwave Flash Object installed in Windows 10 Internet Explorer 11.

Therefore, I would like to know whether it is possible to delete and reinstall the Shockwave Flash Object function.
And I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade or downgrade only the version of the Shockwave Flash Object (or any other related function) while leaving the version of Internet Explorer.

I've never seen anything like this. Okay, here's the system rundown --- Running win 7 pro sp1 64 bit on a Dell xps 8000. Replaced hard drive one month ago, and I've used Seagate's diagnostic tool to check out hard drive, which didn't find any errors with the hard drive.

So, here's problem 1:
Computer was running great up until four days ago. It wouldn't wake up out of sleep properly. It would freeze. I would have to reboot to wake it up. It won't even let me LOG OFF correctly because when I go to log back on, I don't get the prompt to choose the user or enter my password. When I reboot --- that I can only do by shutting on and off the power, it's fine. The computer starts up fine in SAFE MODE, so I'm not detecting any issues there.

Problem 2:
Internet explorer 10 (got it with one of the updates two weeks ago) simply would HANG and not open. Even with I would click it once and open task manager to see what was happening, it showed multiple instances of explorer open. So, what I did was turn OFF Explorer 10 in the "turn windows features on or off" section. But when I when to turn them back on to see if it would reset, I not only lost the default windows icons from the start bar, Explorer refused to initialize when I tried to start it from "Programs" or from clicking the explorer.exe icon in both Programs (64 bit) and Programs (x86).

I haven't been able to use Internet Explorer for a while. In itself, that doesn't matter to me, but I'm having some oddities with other software (like turbo lister) so I've been trying to get IE to work.

This is on Windows XP Pro.

First I had IE8 installed. Everytime I started it up, I would see the window for a second and then it would disappear. No error message.

I uninstalled IE8, which downgraded me to IE6. IE6 came up, but the first page displayed to customize my settings remained blank. Opening a new tab, typing in a url would do nothing; the url would just disappear when I hit enter. To get rid of the "customize my settings" page I went into the registry and told IE that it had already down the "run once" command, but getting rid of that didn't help.

I installed IE7, just because it was the only version left. Like 6, the homepage (which is msn.com) is blank. If I type in a URL like google.com I get a message that http://google.com is currently unavailable.

With both IE6 and IE7, the close button does not work, I have to kill it through the task manager.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have had my computer about a month and a half and today I just realized I have been the wrong Internet Explorer. In my list of programs Internet Explorer 64-bit is also listed so I brought that browser up instead of the one I have been using all along which is not a 64-bit. Anyhow I have nothing listed in my activeX contols outside of McAfee SiteAdvisor. I then went to my game site (Pogo) to play my games and recieved a popup box stating I do not have Java installed. In my Programs and Features I do have Java 6 update 10 installed but it is only listed in the other browser I was using. It is not listed in this browser. My question is, `Do I un-install java6 update 10 and reinstall for this browser or do I install it again for this 64 bit browser, I have no idea what to do. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

A:Internet Explorer (wrong version)

OK, you don't have the *wrong* version running. Windows 64bit includes *both* 32bit versions and 64bit versions of Internet Explorer - this is done by default (even in Windows 7 pre-Beta). This is there because some applications (most notably, at this time, Adobe Flash Player) does not support running on a 64bit browser in Windows. Yet.

Also, the same applies for JAVA - there are 32bit versions and there are 64bit versions - you obviously have the 32bit version installed, so your 32bit browser can see it.

You're welcome to get the 64bit version of JAVA and see if POGO games will work with your 64bit browser - however, if they use *any* flash material, you're out of luck and will be forced to use the 32bit version.

I have Windows XP running with what I thought was IE6. Unfortunately now it will not show a version and it won't let me go to some websites, i.e., hotmail.com, etc. I tried re-installing IE6, but after the long download (on dialup, yikes!), it says that it is not a "signed" product and stops the process! I need help!

Thank you,

Kelly

This has become a serious problem for my computer. IE-7 will open while I am browsing with Mozilla Firefox and has locked up my computer more than once. I have tried re-downloading IE-7 and re-installing it but have run into the same problems. I know this is a virus problem but I have no idea what to do now. Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Internet Explorer (Version 7) opens all on it's own!

Do you have any antivirus installed? The best would be one with aout protect function.
First I would try scanning the computer with free version of ad-aware then Spybot search and Destroy.
Helped me couple times already.

When I double click on internet explorer to go on line. It starts to show that it is connecting then it just freezes up and my laptop starts to make an awful clicking sound.
It looks like it's trying to find a site for Symantec.
I can't connect at all.
any suggestions?
 

A:Internet Explorer is frozen (version 6)

if you use a modem to dial up over a phone line this sounds like the internal modem either has a fault or cannot get a dial tone from your line. If a dial-up (not ADSL/DSL/cable)
First: try the laptop on another phone line
Second: check you are dialling the correct number
Third: Dial the number from your standard phone and listen to confirm it is connecting to another modem. If you are not sure what the noises should sound like, ask your telco for a demo (in some countries they don't do this and as you have not said where you are from.....)

My computer AMC fellow, installed IE6.0 Beta Version which is a little improvement over IE5.5. But it is of little use as I am unable to install Microsoft's patches over it. How do I uninstall this Beta version and get back my old and faithful IE5.5 that had a lot of security patches updated. "Restore the previous Windows configuration" does not work (I am unable to tick the same) under Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel. My O/S is Win98SE
