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.

Best regards

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.

One is that my desktop computer keeps saying that 'internet can not connect to google.


Are you able to surf the internet with Internet Explorer in normal ways?

If the answer is no, get any latest version of new browser (chrome, firefox, etc) and make it as your default browser and see if the problem persists or not.

And if the answer is yes, the problem may be lying into IE itself. Now, again, use any other updated browser and make it default and see what happens.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

You have your default connection set to aol, depending on the internet explorer version you are using you can go to Tools > Internet Options, Click on the 'Connections' tab and remove the AOL connection from your default connections, if you have LAN or cable internet you can select Setup Connection and follow the prompts to set up your permanent connection that way you don't get those AOL messages anymore.
