how do i disable this damn function thei dont even have asked for to enable in the first place?

It will not be enough to link to a Microsoft FAQ that i can search throu myself, i even have diagnose papers (that im holding up infront of my screen right now ) from the braindoctor that i can't search and find in large documents even thou the answer can be right infront of my eyes
so a direct klick by klick instruction paste could help here
Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Disable Internet Explorer 8 site suggestion function

For anything regarding erasing your history and maintaining privacy, I really recommend downloading History Fixer. It deletes all traces of online and offline computer activity including Internet searches, history and chat sessions. Includes a file shredder feature.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/7JS9gZ. (This link will automatically start a download of History Fixer that you can save to your computer.)

A: Disable Internet Explorer 8 site suggestion function

Open IE
click on tools top of the page , right hand side beside File Edit View Favourties, then tools is next, come down to Internet Options
then click on the Content tab
then the autocomplete box
take the check out of web addresses
then click on clear forms
then in the general tab in Internet Options
click on delete history

Hope this is clear enough for you to understand

I have tried most of the posts on the internet to fix this problem--this is under IE6--"Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later." The problem just suddenly appeared. I'm running a Dell Inspiron B130 laptop with Win XP Home, Service Pack 3 installed, 1 gb ram and a 40 gb HDD. Had McAffee Internet Security Suite preinstalled but removed it via REVO Uninstaller and have only Windows firewall enabled and NO anti-virus. I did try downloading with Windows firewall disbaled and still no success. I can navigate to a site like Google Chrome download page but then when I click on the download button, the error message appears. Also can't download Microsoft or Windows updates from either site, although, again, I can get through the "checking" phase. I've run Malwarebytes, A-Squared, and IObit 360 and removed about 13 traces of malware ranging from low risk to high risk, defragged and cleaned the reg, all to no avail. I originally had IE7 installed, read about rolling back to IE6 and doing the typical repair sequences, again to no avail. Supposedly IE8 fixes this, but I can't download it, although I did try the stand-alone installer of 15 MB without checking the "get updates" box. It loaded and installed and shows up as IE8 but still had the same problems. Then did a system restore back to before the IE8 install, rolled back to IE6 again... Read more

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

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:

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.

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).

Here is a step-by-step process for you to disable IE:



1. Open up Control Panel and switch view to Large Icons
2. Go to the Programs and Features
3. On the left Pane go to the turn Windows Features on or off
4. Provide Confirmation if non-administrator
5. Usually Internet Explorer is 3rd in this list of Features installed by Windows, its checked, so uncheck it.
6. Read the warning that says "Turning off Internet Explorer X might affect other Windows Features and programs installed on your computer including default settings. Are you sure you want to continue? (Note: X is for the version of Internet Explorer installed which would usually be versions 8-11)
7. Click yes, then OK and then wait while Windows makes changes to features as it may take several minutes to complete
8. Restart your computer


That's it, after you restart your computer, Internet Explorer will be disabled

Henry

A:Disable Internet Explorer 10

No, things will work fine (the base engine gets left around, but the IE app pieces that use it will be removed - thus making sure things still work from a Modern UI or WebBrowser Control application perspective). Firefox doesn't have a shipping (non-beta) modern version, but you'll still be able to use the desktop version. Right now the only released/stable browsers with modern components/browsers are IE and Google Chrome.

Hi, perkinshershel, and welcome to the forums.
Have you performed any sort of autotuning disabling on your machine, or else 'tweaked' the TCP/IP settings?

FWIW, Vista doesn't do well with tweaked TCP/IP settings like XP does - it has an autotuning feature that dynamically changes the values for various settings n the TCP/IP stack as needed, thereby making the need for tweaked TCP/IP settings a thing of the past.

Whats up with that ? Am I missing some file or is this just another glitch ?
Didn't happen with IE7, and may just go back to it.

A:internet explorer cannot open the internet site...

Did you try other sites ? That is a quick check to see if the problem is your browser. And it would need to be a site that uses similar setup. So if the page that doesn;'t display has lots of javascript, go to another one that has lots of javascript, etc.

On one of my sites, sometimes one particular page wouldn't display. I had to re-edit it, upload, it works fine now. So it may not be your browser. It could be that site.

A:internet explorer freezes on some site need help

Hi defkickjam


Did you build the system, or did someone build it for you? If someone built it for you, and you are experiencing freezes within two weeks, you may want to contact the builder.

If you built this yourself ---

1) Have a look in the EventViewer logs to see if any errors or warnings coincide with the system unresponsiveness. (EventViewer is in the Administrative Tools in Control Panel).
2) Thoroughly scan for malware -- if you have run the PC for any extended period without the firewall or antivirus enabled, malware could be causing the trouble.
3) Try using a different browser (Firefox is fairly good) & see if the problem exists using all browsers, or just one.
4) If you are currently logging into Vista as a "limited" user, try logging on as a user with administrative rights.
5) Have you changed any of the UAC settings recently? If so, try moving them back to their default settings. A security message might be trying to display, & Vista is hanging while waiting for a reply.

Best of luck

Looking for some advice: I am creating a website and need to test the site using IE 6. Does anyone know of a place that I can test my site using IE 6 browser. I currently have IE 7 installed, but when I view my site using IE6 the 3 column template does not fit on the home page.

I don't want to run IE6 on my computer or both versions of IE... Any advice would be greatly appreciated...

A:Internet Explorer 6 Test Site

Do you have a spare computer that you could install IE 6 on and open the website using that. Even better create a virtual machine on your computer then install Windows XP evaluation on it and open the site using your virtual machine.

Microsoft have a free tool to make and run virtual machines called Microsoft Virtual PC.

Hello
My Internet Explorer is not loading one particular site but another browser is.  The site in question was once a part of Kaspersky's Smart Money list and is a bank.  It has been deleted and that software was recently upgraded to a newer product (Total Security).  I do not know if the a/v is the issue or not.  What I do know is that when I try to load the web page, the browser comes back VERY quickly and states that the address is wrong or my connection to the Internet is down.  Neither is true, of course.
 
I need some assistance to trouble shoot and try to find out a way to fix this.
 
System is a HP ENVY, Windows 8.1 x64, IE 11. All MS updates are current.
Thanks
shley

Try resetting Internet explorer settings to default. Open the run box by holding down the Windows key and pressing "R".  Next Copy and past the following command and click RESET. 

RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ResetIEtoDefaults

Hello,
I purchased a new desktop. Sony VAIO, too much crap in it but it had most of what I wanted. I had to add a wireless adapter to access home network and internet.
At first I could get to MSN via internet explorer then I could not.
I can get to most internet but many pages won't load including microsoft, windows update, sony, etc.

Any Ideas why this has occurred?
Ideas to correct. I turned off Windows firewall because I use Norton's.
I can also access hotmail.

Hello,

I've just done a full factory default restore using Packard Bell's Smart Restore. Wiping out all my installed programes which is what I expected however when re-installing my browser and addon IE7Pro I no longer have the drop and drag function allowing me to highlight a search term or web written link and drag it to the left or right opening up a new tab in a new window.

I would like to know how I get it back, Or if I've missed something simple disenabling this function thanks.

Both my browser and add-on version is the same as before I did the restore.

Hello all i'm new to this forum any help is greatly appreciated.

I have a user who wants to use "Autocomplete" in IE, but he doesn't want it for every site or for every page even. Is there a way to disable/enable "Autocomplete" from site to site or from page to page? He uses multiple statistical reporting web sites and the list of reports that populate his drop down boxes are really long (50+). So, for some websites it is useful for others it is really unproductive.

If there is a list of sites that are making use of autocomplete with in IE where is that list? and can that list be modified so that autocomplete is/isn't enabled on per site basis.

I have looked online and most of the stuff is either how to turn autocomplete off/on OR how to disable it as a web developer to make forms more secure. (SSN#, credit card, etc...).

again thanks in advance

Hi,

I would like to disable the browsing facility for certain users. But these
users must be able to use OUTLOOK EXPRESS using smtp AND pop3
of GMAIL . Is it possible to do this ?

A:Disable Browsing Internet Explorer

Suggest you download Doug Knox's Windows? XP Security Console, it will make it easier to do what you want.

REMINDER: To do what you want, the users in question MUST NOT have Administrator prevliges.

Also suggest you bookmark Doug Knox's site.

This is for a friend who can't get on any web sites and i'm doing it from my computer. She can sign on to Aol, but can get nothing else. It always says This page cannot be displayed you may need to adjust your browser settings and can't find a server or DSN error.
