Question about Dell Dimension 4400 PC Desktop

2 Answers

On desktop, connect with IE, but error message pops up

Within a few seconds of connecting to the internet, through Internet Explorer, the standard IE box pops up stating and error has been detected. Happens every single time over the 7-10 days and won't go away so that you can continue on the internet. Have used the prompt that asks if you want to send a message to MSN, but of course, you don't get a response. Thanks in advance if anybody can help ... first time using this site.

    Did a system restore to a known, good earlier date -per suggestion - but it didn't correct the problem. Still get the "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem" box popping up right away after connecting to the internet.

    Thanks, Jaranya, but the problem still persists after trying your suggestions.

    Have you run your ati-virus scan and spy ware scanner?

    Delete the Temp files, Temporay Internet Files and delete the cookies. Also, run defrag and run a scandisk. Let me know.

First, start the system in safe mode. Do so by restarting the computer and holding down "F-8" before the windows XP startup appears. Select "safe mode with networking" from the list. Allow the system to boot. While in safe mode, run a system scan with your anti-virus application, applying any fixes indicated. See if your ant- virus will do an update while you are still in safe mode, If it will, allow the update to proceed, and then run another scan and fix. See if this helps.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

  • Open your IE web browser. Click Tools on the menu bar. Click Internet Option in the dropdown list. Internet Options box will appear.
  • On the General Tab, click use default button for the Home Page. In the Browsing History, Click Delete..., and Click Delete All... button. On the Programs Tab you can make IE as your default web browser. Click "Manage Add-ons" button and Enable ALL the lists and then Click OK. You can also check the boxes you want to change in the Advanced Settings.
  • Update your Active X controls. You can search and download it in google.com
*Note: This takes effect after restarting your Internet Explorer.
          Your vote will highly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Good Day Ischan!

Please check if the problem is not internet connection issues. You may need to call your internet provider if that is the case.

Or, I would suggest upgrading the version of your Internet Explorer. Yahoo products like Yahoo Messenger rely its stable connection through Internet Explorer of Windows.

It doesn't matter if you are using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Just upgrade the version of Internet Explorer and that will fix it.

To download Internet Explorer, please go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie

Good Luck!

Why does Bing keep popping up when I want to get into my hotmail account and preventing access to my hotmail ?


Because Bing is too often implemented as an intrusive and annoying facility.
Many Bing-enabled webpages seem to be coded such that just mousing over any number of common words and phrases pops up unwanted and unneeded Bing boxes relating to those words and phrases, blocking what you are currently trying to read.
The people who design these pages apparently believe this is a wonderful and helpful new way for websites to work. I'm not one of them, and user experiences like yours are the reason for my opinion.
The solution is block the Bing website:
Step by step:
1) Open the IE options.
This can be done by using the Tools menu within IE and selecting “Internet Options”, by right-clicking on the IE icon on your desktop or Start menu and selecting “Internet Options”, or by launching “Internet Options” from inside the Windows Control Panel.
2) From the IE Options window, select the Security tab
3) From within the security tab, click on the “Restricted sites” icon and then click the [Sites] button right below it.
4) A list box window will pop up. In the “Add this website to the zone:” filed type in *.intellitxt.com then click the [Add] button.
5) Close Internet Explorer. The next time you open Internet Explorer the change takes place.

Within Internet Explorer, click Tools, and Internet Options, and then delete all temporary Internet files. Close Internet Explorer.
Re-open Internet Explorer.

Is it just one person's FACEBOOK web-page that causes the problem, or does the problem occur on *ALL* FACEBOOK web-pages?

Does the problem occur *ONLY* when accessing FACEBOOK web-pages?

If you're using an older version of Internet Explorer, upgrade to IE7 or IE8.

This happens from time to time and is normally nothing to worry about. Run Disc Cleanup and remove all it finds. This will reset the cache in IE and may solve the problem.

Good afternoon Laveda,

I have two fixes for you to try,

1. Right click the wireless icon in your task tray (bottom right of the screen). Select REPAIR from the pop up list. The wizard will run through it and you will hit finish or close at the end. Try Internet Explorer.

If that doesn't work...

2. Open Internet Explorer. From the File menu, Select Tools. Select Internet Options from the bottom of the drop down list. Select the Connections tab across the top. Click the LAN Settings button torwards the bottom. Make sure that "Automatically Detect Settings" is checked and nothing else. Close Internet Explorer, reopen Voila.

I hope this helps you out. Have a good day.
