Sounds to me like a possible browser hijack. Do you only have Internet explorer? any chance you have installed the Firefox browser or Google Chrome? if you have a way to open up your internet

1) i would recommend downloading MalwareBytes and do a scan of your system, which you can get it from here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php Click on the "Download" if you successfully download the application continue with the installation, after is done upgrading select 'perform full scan' and click scan, select any Hard drives that you have (do not select DVD/CD drives)

2) After the scan is done it will tell you if you have any malicious malware running in your system. Select the option to remove/fix the malicious files listed, it might ask you to do a restart to continue with the removal malicious content.

**
If you do not have firefox installed or any other browser besides IE please go to Task Manager (CTRL + ALT + DELETE) and please post a reply with all the processes running.

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.

I have a dell optiplex gx520,it is hooked up to wireless connection and it's showing that the signal is good,but IE won't let us view webpage......


can you check if have a valild IP address?

1. Start > RUN > type in "cmd"
2. On the command prompt windows (black DOS window),
> type "ipconfig" > hit Enter
> you should have a valid IP address (something like 192.168.x.x)
• if yes, then try to ping a website
• if no, (you should see somthing like 169.254.x.x), check your wireless settings again.
**good signal doesnt mean that you are connected, it could be a conflict with wireless encryptions too..**
3. to perform PING
> on the CMD screen (back DOS based window), type "ping (space) google.com"
> you should see ping statistics, something like "packets sent=4 received=4 lost=0"
• if 0% lost > your connected to the internet
• if 100% lost > you have no connection
> again check your wireless again
4. If you can Ping and you can't still view webpages using IE here's what I suggest
• Optimize your browser
-delete temporary internet files and cookies
4a.1 Open Internet Explorer
4a.2 Click "Tools" (the icon that looks ike a cogwheel / gear; usually at the upper right corner of internet explorer)
4a.3 Click "Internet Options"
4a.3 Click "Delete" under the General Tab Screen
4a.4 Restart Internet Explorer
• Reset Internet Explorer to factory settings
4b.1 Open Internet Explorer
4b.2 Click "Tools" (the icon that looks ike a cogwheel / gear; usually at the upper right corner of internet explorer)
4b.3 Click "Internet Options"
4b.4 Click on the "Advanced" tab
4b.5 Click on "RESET"
4b.6 Restart Internet Explorer

Hopes this Helps

Was downloading off the internet, when a notification came up that said 'there is an error and internet explorer is shutting down.' I pushed the do not send button. The program has frozen and now I cannot...


you might have a virus run your antivirus then
try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
then you should replace all leads that are attached to your hard drive including the ones from your motherboard
hope this helps

Internet explorer task bar missing


Try pressing the left Alt key alone. Does the menu bar appear?
Try right-clicking the area where the menu bar is supposed to be. Try different spots around the upper part of the window, eventually you should see in the context menu an option to turn on the menu bar.
