Internet Explorer's strange behavior

Q: Internet Explorer's strange behavior

Ok, I'm relatively new at the whole computer thing and I know, "What took you so long?"

I have Windows XP but just recently, when I try to open Internet Explorer, it may take a few attempts before it opens.(ya' know the hourglass expires before anything happens) However, when I log off, ending program task panel opens, then ending program iexplore.exe opens and keeps opening for the amount of times I tried to open internet explorer.
This leads me to believe that it in fact opened somewhere but not anywhere I can see it. Also on occasion, the task panel will turn blue for quite sometime when I close out an open window.
I tried searching for an answer to this problem but to no avail, so any advice here would be most appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer's strange behavior

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.)

Recently I've been having trouble closing Internet Explorer successfully. Oftentimes I'll get a very suspicious error window that says "closing this window may cause serious problems." Generally when that happens I'll end the process via Task Manager rather than clicking on anything on the error window. I'm a bit paranoid that I may be infected with a key-logger of some type and I'd very much like to keep my online accounts secured. Once I've gotten the all clear from you guys I plan on creating new strong passwords for all my accounts. It seems like I haven't seen the problem since installing the latest Windows Updates recently (including the latest malware removal tool) but I thought I'd ask the pros just to be safe rather than sorry. Thanks for any assistance you can provide. Here are the logs I've created so far per your instructions:

I hope someone can help me work this out, it's driving me crazy!
I'll try to explain it in as few words as possible!
There is a website we need to access on which we're having trouble getting some of the buttons to display.  In short it works when the internet zone is set to "Medium" but not when it's "Medium-High" (I have added it to trusted sites
but in properties it shows as "Unknown Zone (Mixed)" so seems to use the "Internet Zone" settings.)
I am trying to track down which security setting is causing the issue.  To do this my plan was to make a note of all the settings that differ between Medium and Medium-High.  However if I set it to medium-high and manually change all the settings
to be identical to medium it still doesn't work... yet if I use the "Reset to: Medium" option at the bottom it does work!  This doesn't make any sense to me.
Are there other hidden stetting affected by the "Reset to" option that I can't change manually.
Any help would really be appreciated!  Thanks!

I am having a problem with the way Windows Explorer displays one of my folders. The folder is stored under Documents>Personal. The title of the folder is LETTERS. The folder, until a few days ago, contained a subfolder called "Spain". All letters pertaining to Spain were stored in the subfolder; all other letters were stored by themselves in LETTERS. A few days ago I found all letters that were in the Spain subfolder were now combined with all other letters. The subfolder Spain no longer existed. It took me many hours to get this straightened out. For one thing, I could no longer create a new folder within the LETTERS folder. A computer technician I contacted told me that was because the LETTERS folder was READ-ONLY. Unchecking this property didn't help, so I created another dummy folder to transfer all the files in LETTERS to the dummy folder, delete LETTERS and rename the dummy folder as LETTERS. This apparently solved the problem until today: the subfolder Spain is now gone again and all letters are now combined in one folder. Just out of curiosity I brought up the DOS command and looked in USERS...DOCUMENTS>PERSONAL DOCUMENTS>LETTERS. A dir command showed the SPAIN subdirectory plus all the non-SPAIN letters, exactly the way it should be. My question: why doesn't Windows Explorer show the SPAIN subfolder and why does it combine all letters--SPAIN and non-SPAIN--together?

Hello,

I am using a cable model and a linksys router.
I have Vista Home Premium 64 Bit.

Every time I turn on the computer I see the icon that the computer is connected to the network but I don't have internet.

I check the detail and it confirms:
It is connected to the network but not to internet.

I disconnect from the network and connect it again and now it also gets connected to the internet as expected.

The detail of my connection is:
MyHomeNetwork (Private Network)
Access: Local and Internet

I always need to disconnect and connect again my network when I start my computer. And some times when I get problems and I am not able to load web pages I need to do the same.

What is wrong?

I fear that an old PC I recently purchased from a garage sale may have had a virus that spread throughout my network.

First, a little bit of background about this computer. Around December of last year, it was infected by a virus that seemed to be neutralized after some assistance. But within a week, the computer wouldn't even start up anymore, as it would freeze up before even displaying the desktop icons. To my dismay, I found out that the Vista install CD had ran away to some remote area of the downstairs garage, so I installed a copy of Windows Server 2008 I had on hand (I got it for free). Anyways, long story short, it turned out there wasn't an antivirus in the world that would let me install their software without paying money, due to the fact I had a server OS. I wound up installing Microsoft Security Essentials, knowing very well that it was unsupported. But, it was the best I could do for free.

Now, let's fast forward to this weekend.
I had found and purchased a PC for 10 dollars at a garage sale. The owners said that it had been in storage for a long time, but it had some nice goodies that came with it, such as a TV tuner card, and it had Windows XP. So, with great amounts of excitement, I slammed that computer tower onto my desk, plugged it in, and turned it on. It wasn't fast, but it seemed a bit cool, and a bit of a blast to the past after having Windows Vista for the longest time. I then connected it to the Internet. At that moment, I noticed ...

Hi,
I'm currently have the issue, that mainly PDF files are handled different ways on each website.

First example: I open a PDF file in our document management system (Intranet), I only can choose to save
the file. If I open the catering menu pdf (Intranet), it opens directly in the IE11.
Seconde example: I search google for any PDF (i.e.
http://www.orimi.com/pdf-test.pdf), it opens within the IE11.
If I open Outlook Webaccess, I only can download the file.
In the past with IE 10, I have been asked to open or to save the file.

Any idea what happened here? IE 11 is configured through GPO.




Thank you for your help!

I usually get 55-60Mbps down and after testing when the garbled new email sound happened I would be down at 4-6Mbps down.

I then thought it was my on board ethernet on my mobo so I bought an intel pcie card and have been using it since. The problem still occurs. I see no other issues on the computer but the ones listed above. Once I restart my computer everything is back to normal. It usually last 1-2 days before the problem appears again.

My computer was recently infected when I visited gamecopyworld.com. I've managed to clean out the infection, but IE is exhibiting some odd behavior ever since.

When I open IE and try to use the address bar to connect to a website, it looks like it's trying to connect, but then it just sits there and doesn't display anything and when I try to close the window I sometimes get the "End Task" dialog. I can open pages stored locally on my hard drive and link to other web pages from there (this is how I got the virus/trojan/etc. removed by using Housecall, turned out to be Vundo), and when I open a new window while IE is already running and displaying a web page, I can then use the address bar to go to a new page. I've downloaded and run several of the programs mentioned in articles I've read on this site:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
SuperAntiSpyware
ATF-cleaner
LSPfix

I cleaned out everything they recommended and I'm still having problems. Firefox seems unaffected.

Select the radio button that says "Obtain DNS servers automatically". Reboot. Warning: Some Internet Service Providers need specific DNS settings. You need to make sure that you know if such DNS settings are required before you make this change.

Hi. My Internet Explorer just started acting strangely on my Netbook. Sometimes when I click on a link I just get returned to the Google homepage. Sometimes it's a chore trying to even get to the Google homepage because all these different search home pages come up. Sometimes there are advertisements that pop up at seemingly random times. Sometimes I get an error when trying to register on a website.
I may not have an active antivirus program running so that may be an issue. I would also like to check to see  if my Registry has been compromised if possible.
Also I have practically maxed out the drive with too many song files so I probably should remove some of those. The computer is also much slower than it was.

I use XP home and IE has gone wrong lately. It never seems to load a page first time and is very slow. I normally get a 404 error page or "parameter incorrect" or if its a forum I sometimes get a maintainance being carried out page the first time I open a new page. I have to refresh (sometimes several times) before it loads the page properly. It shouldn't be giving these errors as they aren't true.

I have done everything I can think of. Full error check, virus check with Norton and latest updates. I have also cleared out cookies and temp internet files, cleaned registry and cache.

"Windows Internet Explorer cannot find 'file:///' make sure the path or Internet address is correct".
I haven't even tried to go anywhere on the Internet yet and haven't used IE for about 6 months. I click "ok" and the box goes away.

Hello, New to the forum and seeking help. I tried searching everywhere for help with this, but could not find anything. I will try to be as brief and include as much info as I can. I run windows XP SP2. I believe I clicked on a bad link and became infected with some kind of virus. My AVG popped up a "threat detected" warning, and I paniced and shut down the computer as fast as I could. When I restarted, I saw that my Internet explorer icon, as well as every icon on my desktop that uses IE to open, had turned white with what looks like the MS-DOS page with the 3 little colored icons. When I double click IE, the only thing it does is instantly adds another IE icon on my desktop? No hour glass or anything. It just keeps adding Icons. I have no pop ups, nothing running in the tray, no ads asking me to purchase anything. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I've used this site in the past to successfully rid my system from the normal spy/adware problems, but this a new one. I ran a full scan with my AVG, but it did not find anything. I also ran MBAM in normal, and safe mode and it also did not find anything.
I hope I included enough info for someone to help me. If anyone has any advice or suggestions, i'd be greatly appreciative. Thank you, Neil.

Just as a note: I work in Tech Support and am familiar with viruses, spyware, etc. I regularly use appropriate antivirus/spyware software and regularly use HiJack This to scan for unusual activity.

PROBLEM: When a user navigates to a specifc web site instead of the page loading up correctly she is only given a prompt to save or run. This only happens with a specific URL and does not happen from other computers in the office. The website does not contain any viruses and there do not appear to be any viruses or spyware on the computer that is trying to access the site.

Like I said before, this has happened to one of my personal computers in the past and I could not figure out why. It doesn't matter whether you type the URL from the command prompt or enter the DNS name or IP address directly into the browser. It's almost as if there is some screwed up file association somewhere with this specific site only. Clearing cookies and cache and reseting IE settings have no effect. Unfortunately, user is unable to install another browser instead of Internet Explorer.

Anyone have any ideas what may be causing this?
Regards,

Rollin

HI all...my Internet Explorer is acting strange - I'm afraid I've been hijacked! When I search, I see the results, then they change to different results. Also, I am getting the page not responding quite often. I have run AdAware, SpyBot, & CWS shredder along with my Virus SCan. The computer's only a couple months old! Below is my log - any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

I am able to connect (Freeserve broadband connection) and have performed a number of tests under the guidance of Freeserve technical support - (LOL @ their technical support!!) which have shown that I should be able to access the sites I want to - something to do with sending & receiving packets successfully. I was advised that there must be a problem with Internet Explorer. Has anyone else experienced similar problems or can anyone advise me on what I should do?

My internet is fine, it connects to sites well, but there is just one odd problem that I have had for a while now, and it bothers me.

There are a few sites where if I try to access them, it takes a VERY long time to load. Considering I have DSL, and that my internet is generally great with other sites, this just should not be happening. These sites can take over 2 minutes to load, and the sites are not astronomically large or anything; it just takes such a long time to load!

Maybe it would help to get into detail on some of the websites that do this, but the ones I can remember for now:
addictinggames.com
acronymfinder.com (only when I'm searching for an acronym)
miniclip.com (only when I start to play a game, but still, it should NOT take nearly as long as it does)
news.google.com (most of the links there)

There are others, but those are just ones coming off the top of my head. Please help if possible, I have no clue why certain sites take such a long time to load. I know probably everyone is thinking "because they're game websites", but really, I compare the speed of this to my Windows XP laptop, and they go at exactly the same rate with every website, with exception to the ones displayed above.

EDIT: It says I'm a WinXP user, but this computer is actually older, Windows ME. In case that helps, wanted to point that out.

A:Strange Internet Problem (Explorer, Mozilla, all of em)

About 47 of these windows open up when trying to go to certain websites,
when running Network Diagnostics for Windows XP, and when I insert my Cruzer U3 Smart Dive into my computer. The only way to close them is to click the X in the top right corner. Selecting Yes or No does nothing.

This Window is behind the 47 others and also selecting OK or Show Details>> does absolutely nothing. It can only be closed by clicking the X. I cannot get these windows to stop popping up. Wondering if there might be a virus that the anti-virus (Norton) im running isn't finding. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, e-mails and the Internet don't work in the same way.

Is KIS installed at all? If so, make sure it's completely removed. Read this for removal instructions.

If it still doesn't work, use the free Revo Uninstaller.

1. Download and install the software.
2. Run the software and it will display all the programs installed in your PC.
3. Select Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 and right click on the program's icon.
4. Select Uninstall and you will be redirected into step-by-step wizard to remove the software.

If still no luck, try a System Restore.

This may be the cause:

However, it stops me from deleting or making any changes to it.
It just shows me some error messages like 'can't edit registry key'...
What could I do?

This error actually appeared after I install Internet Explorer 9 Beta Version a few monthes ago. It still exists after i upgraded to stable version.


It shows me an error message after I attempted to move that strange icon.It shows me: Error 0x80004001 Not implemented
and it asks me to use that error code to find solutions.

Hi. Thought this problem was solved a few weeks ago but guess not. Simply put, there are three strange problems with IE on my computer:

1. Opening IE takes forever and a day.

2. Can open Hotmail and Yahoo Mail, however opening Gmail, I can get onto the welcome page, then input my ID and password (sidebar: I get Gmail in Korean and not English. Any way to change this?). Gmail then informs me it is "loading" but 95% of the time, freezes IE totally. This only happens on this computer.

3. Can open Techguy and go all the way to forums, however in trying to open a thread, my IE refuses to open any thread and says unable to open. Writing this from another notebook here. Why would this be?

Have looked at Hijack This!, run Panda, EasyCleaner, Adaware, Spybot, Norton Antivirus. Can't seem to find the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

First off, Im looking for a way to fix this, so don't tell me to use another browser.

Here is the problem, IE has started acting very strange, many pages are no longer fully loading, some fail to load anything yet they claim they are "done". Other places, like TS and other msg boards will load but QUOTES appear as empty boxes and some lines of text won't show up either.

I have had this happening for almost a month and have tried Spybot, Adaware, and HijackThis. They are all fully up to date. I have also tried scanning for virii with fully updated NAV, as well as using every online scan I know of.

The problem seems isolated to IE, as it does not affect Firefox. I have reasons for needing to use IE for some things so I don't want to just give it up completely.

Here is an example http://www.techspot.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=229&size=big&password=&sort=1&cat=500

I tried to launch a game today, but less then a minute in, the game crashes and the systems bluescreens. This happened twice in a row.

During the restart, unusual pixels appear in the BIOS splash, red squares before the windows logo appears, and then green vertical bars during the windows load, followed by a bluescreen. Then happened multiple times (even after system was powered down, and psu shut off). These startup colors didnt appear every time, however if I got into windows, it was quite unstable and bluescreened in less then 5 mins.

Possible causes / fixes? (See pics below)

Hello. My name is max and i'm a teenager from Illinois. Normally i know considerable amounts about computers, but because my access to the internet is *quite* restricted, i know almost nothing about the internet, viruses, and the like. Recently, my computer (not really my computer, just the one i use for Internet access) has been acting rather strange.

It's been
A) during time when the internet is connected, (broadband) possible shows a pop-up box saying "this page is accessing information that is not under its control. This poses a security risk. Continue? Whether you click yes or no, it comes back in 5 seconds. Even now it's over in the corner. The icon for the window of it on the taskbar is a wierd cube with blue red and green sides.
B) unable to system restore properly
C) find any viruses or adware by using my scanner (latest mcfee specs)

So i ask you... please help!
