I am getting the Yahoo site where I am, but where you access the website may be super busy so just wait a few minutes and try again.

When I try to access facebook.com I keep getting "page cannot be displayed , what is the problem here ?


Facebook uses https as its protocol once you have logged in. If other websites (such as Google, Yahoo, Amazon, etc.) work but websites such as Facebook, online banking, and others do not, then it seems that there is a problem with the security settings of the web browser since it would appear that the problems are only with websites that use secure HTTP (which is what the https protocol provides). Presuming that you are using Internet Explorer (as I have found it to be the most commonly used browser when this problem occurs), what you need to do is reset your security options back to defaults. You accomplish this by going to the Internet Options control panel applet or go to Tools'Internet Options from the pull-down menus within Internet Explorer and then click on the Security tab. You will find four icons at the top of the window for that tab: Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted Sites, and Restricted Sites. Click on each in turn and make sure that each has the Default Level button greyed out. If the Default Level button lights up for one of the options, click on it to reset its settings. After this, click on the Advanced tab and then click on the button toward the bottom that is labelled "Restore Advanced Settings." After this, click OK and close all windows of Internet Explorer that you currently have open. Wait about 30 seconds (to insure that all active Internet Explorer processes close out of memory) and then open Internet Explorer again and try to go to Facebook. If all goes well, you should now be able to get in.

I hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.

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.

Running script error


Method 1: Disable script debugging loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); If the only sign of a problem is the error message, and Web sites are working, you can probably ignore the error. Also, if the problem only happens on one or two Web pages, it might be a problem with those pages. If you decide to ignore the errors, you can disable script debugging.

Note If this problem occurs on more than one or two sites, do not disable script debugging. Go to method 2 now.

To turn off the Scripting Debugger in Internet Explorer 6, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Disable script debugging check box. and then click OK .
To turn off notification about every script error in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to clear the Display a notification about every script error check box, and then click OK.
Method 2: Test a Web page from another user account, another browser, and another computer loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Use another user account, another browser, or another computer to view the Web pages that triggered a script error to determine whether the problem persists. If the script error persists, there may be a problem with the way the Web page is written. You can probably ignore the error and disable script debugging as described in method 1.

If the script error does not occur when you view the Web page from another user account, browser, or computer, the problem may be caused by files or by settings on your computer. Go to method 3 to continue to troubleshoot. Method 3: Verify that Active Scripting, ActiveX, and Java are not being blocked by Internet Explorer loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Active scripting, ActiveX, and Java are all involved in shaping the way information displays on a Web page. If these are blocked on your computer, it may disrupt the display of the Web page. Reset the Internet Explorer security settings to make sure these are not blocked. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab.
  4. Click Default Level.
  5. Click OK.
Note ActiveX controls and Java programs are turned off at the High security level in Internet Explorer.

Try to open a Web page where you previously received a scripting error. If you do not receive the error, the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, go to Method 4. Method 4: Remove all the temporary Internet-related files loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Every time that you open a browser to view a Web page, your computer stores a local copy of that Web page in a temporary file. If the size of the temporary Internet files folder becomes too large, some display problems may occur when you open Web pages. Periodically clearing the folder might help resolve the issue.

To remove all the temporary Internet-related files from your computer when you use Internet Explorer 6, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. Under Temporary Internet files, click Settings.
  5. Click Delete Files, and then click OK.
  6. Click Delete Cookies, and then click OK.
  7. Under History, click Clear History, and then click Yes.
  8. Click OK.
To remove all the temporary Internet-related files from your computer when you use Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. Under Browsing History, click Delete, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  5. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, under Temporary Internet Files, click Delete Files, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  6. Under Cookies, click Delete Cookies, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  7. Under History, click Delete History, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  8. Click Close, and then click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Try to open a Web page where you previously received a scripting error. If you do not receive the error, the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, go to method 5. Method 5: Install the latest service pack and software updates for Internet Explorer 6 or Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); If you do not have the latest service pack or software upgrades for Internet Explorer 6 or 7, download and install them. They may contain updates that can help resolve the issue.

Just trying to setup yahoo as a home page again


Open Internet Explorer (or your web brower)

Go to Tools, Internet Options

In the first box, under the first tab, you'll see one or more websites listed.

Delete any you do not want as a homepage.

If you leave any, press enter at the end of the line, and type in http://www.yahoo.com.

For each website that you want to set as a home page (for more than one), use a seperate line. type the basic website name as listed above, then click on okay at the bottom.

Close out Internet Explorer, (or your web browser) and then restart. Your home page (yahoo) will load as the home page; in addition to any others you listed.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
