A better solution is not to use Internet Explorer or AOL at all, and instead use Firefox. It is much better.
Do as the others suggest as well because there are some (very few) websites that lock Firefox out.

Go to control panel and in that add or remove program you remove internet explorer . And you download the latest version of Internet explorer .

This problem occurs when your cookies are incorrect or some malware/virus in it .

Registry errors


You may have encountered the following message while browsing certain websites:

"Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://<website>.com. Operation aborted."


This really has nothing to do with your browser or your computer. You get this error because of faulty web coding from the webmaster's end.

IE displays this error when it is unable to open a particular element on a web page.


There are many things you can do to troubleshoot this kind of problem.


Upgrade Internet Explorer.

This problem does not occur in Internet Explorer 8. Navigate to Microsoft download Center and click on the "Download" button to upgrade to IE8 or IE9 (see Below).


http://download.cnet.com/windows-internet-explorer-8/3000-2356_4-10910662.html

IE 8


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx

IE 9


Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options." Hit the "Advanced" tab.

Click to remove the check mark next to "Show friendly HTTP error messages" under "Browsing" sub-headings.


Click on "Apply" and hit "OK." Please note this works mostly for Internet Explorer 6, although there is no harm in trying this on older or newer versions.


Add the specific website that is producing "Operation aborted" error under "Restricted Sites."


Click on the "Security" tab under "Internet Options."

Single-click to highlight "Restricted Sites."


Hit on the "Sites" button and click on "Add."

Type the URL of the website and hit "OK."


This works for Internet Explorer 7, but again, you can try this in earlier versions.


Disable or require prompt for "Active Scripting" when you view the specific website.

Click on the "Security" tab.


Click to highlight 'Restricted Sites" zone.

Navigate down to the sub-heading "Scripting."


Click to select "Disabled" under "Active Scripting."

You may also choose "Prompt" if you want IE to issue a prompt when opening the specific web page or website.


If you are still worried about the registry or need to fix any problems with it

You can run a free registry scan using utilities from http://re7.info

Hope this helps.

use WinsockFix will solve your problem, if you using Win XP click Here to download it.

Read this for Vista :

When Winsock corrupts, the networking errors that you may face include unable to surf the Internet with “Page cannot be displayed” error message in Internet Explorer or AOL even though the DSL/ADSL/cable Internet connection is connected. Sometimes, Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service is terminated as well. To repair and reset the Windows Vista
  1. Click on Start button.
  2. Type Cmd in the Start Search text box.
  3. Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run Command Prompt as Administrator. Allow elevation request.
  4. Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.

Internet Explorer Closes


If your system wasn't set up to do MS Auto-update from the factory, I recommend you use it.
It is likely that the IE and possibly other Windows functions need one of the hundreds of tweaks MS constantly makes to try to keep their Edsel working properly.

Open your Control Panel from the misnamed 'Start' menu, click on Automatic Updates and check (or set) your settings.

BTW, lots of luck with your Compaq/HP laptop; I won't own another one nor service any HP system again.
