Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

Unable to view pictures in IE7

A friend sends links thru e-mails. When I open the link, in the e-mail, IE opens, a box where the picture should have been shows up; but it is just an outline with a small X in the upper left hand corner of the box instead of the picture. How can I make it so that my computer will display the picture?

    I had already tried loading java, so compared my ver with current and they were the same. After carefully copying the status of all settings and resetting as you suggested... it made no difference. So I reset all the things in advanced tools that I had changed. Is it possible that the e-mail sender is doing something wrong when attaching?

Try to install java from Java.com. Restart after installation then try again.

If it didnt work. reset IE's settings. For Internet explorer 6, go to Tools>Internet Options>Security. then click Reset Web Settings. Also, go to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced. Then click restore defaults.

For Internet Explorer 7, go to Tools>options>advanced. then click 'REset".

I don't know how to open the attached files


When you open your mail, after reading it, at the bottom of the mail, you would see your attachments, there is a 'view' link. You click on this if you just want to view the file. Then there is a 'download' link, you click on this if you want to download the file. When you download, it would provide you with the option to either 'open' or 'save' the file. Choosing 'open' will open the file. You would then have to save it onto your pc. Choosing 'save' would automatically save it on to any location you specify.
I hope this was helpful to your plight?

Yahoo is still having some problems at the moment. Suggested cures range from Update Adobe Flash Player and Java script to clear IE7 cache, cookies, and browsing history. Different things seem to work for different people. It's causing attachments to not show, 999 errors where it won't let you do a particular action and some people cannot send receive delete or move mail. It's not just Vista either it's happening to some of us on XP.

Cannot open links in outlook express does not open IE if i click on any links in emails


First go to "programs and features" uninstall Google Chrome.

Go to "Set Default Programs" (Control Panel>Default Programs>Set Default Programs)

Select Internet Explorer and click Set this program as default

Select Microsoft Office Outlook and click Set this program as default

Run Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and browse to location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Ext and change the value data of all DWORD entries from 1 to 0.

Launch Internet Explorer first; launch your Mail client (hopefully Microsoft Officer Outlook).

Check if all is well and you are now able to open links from within your Mail client.

Troubleshooting FAQs

IMPORTANT NOTE TO AOL, MSN, COMPUSERVE AND SBC ISP USERS:
If you are using the built-in browser provided by your ISP, you will NOT see My Mail Signature or your toolbar. They do not work with the built-in browser. Instead, you MUST:

1) Launch Internet Explorer 5.01 or above from your desktop. (Don't have it? Download here.)
2) Find your browser toolbar - it will have either a "My Web Search" or "My Way Search" logo.
To use My Mail Signature in email: My Mail Signature works with Outlook, Outlook Express, AOL Mail 9.0, IncrediMail (using IE 5.5 or above), and with most web-based email platforms (using IE 5.01 or above), including the rich-text Editor version of MSN Hotmail. (To learn more, click here.)

How do I know if my version of My Mail Signature is compatible with Outlook or Outlook Express?

To check that My Mail Signature is compatible with your Outlook or Outlook Express email platform, you will need to do the following:

1) Open a new browser (Internet Explorer 5.01 and above only).

2) Locate your browser toolbar - it will have either a "My Web Search" or "My Way Search" logo - and click the down arrow to the immediate right of the My Web Search/My Way Search logo (far left side of the toolbar).

3) Select "My Web Search Version" or "My Way Search Version". A small window should appear with the version of your toolbar. Check that it says Version: 1, 1, 1, 0 or higher. (Click here to see a picture)

You can also check by opening a Compose/New Mail screen using your email system. My Mail Signature is compatible if you see the navigation bar (with My Signature button) in the Compose/New Mail screen. If you don't see it, first close your email system, open it again, and check for the navigation bar.

How do I know if my version of My Mail Signature is compatible with AOL Mail 9.0 or IncrediMail?

I use Norton Internet Security, Zone Alarm, or similar firewall/proxy software and am having trouble downloading My Mail Signature. Why?

The most common problem when downloading or installing My Mail Signature occurs when running such software. If you are running one of these types of products, try temporarily disabling it, then go back to http://www.mymailsignature.com to try the download process again. You can reactivate your firewall/proxy software once the download and installation of the toolbar and My Mail Signature is complete.

Why can't I see My Mail Signature - or the toolbar - on my browser?


If you have downloaded My Mail Signature and are not seeing the My Signature button or the toolbar on your browser, you may need to enable the toolbar through your browser's menu. To do this:
1) Click on the "View" menu option.
2) Select "Toolbars".
3) You will see either "My Web Search" or "My Way Search" listed in the dropdown - make sure that there is a check mark next to it. If there is no check mark, click on the toolbar name in order to enable it.

If the toolbar DOES have a check mark but is not visible on your browser, clear the check mark by clicking on the name of the toolbar. Then repeat the steps above to re-enable it. The toolbar should now appear.

Uninstall ie7


thank you for the clarifiaction it seems that you cannot uninstall IE in Vista, but you can disable it. If you go to the control panel, and double click on "default Programs" the last of four options will be "Set Program Accesses and Computer Defaults". Tell the User Account Control prompt to "continue", then click the radio-button by the "custom" option, and then hit the expand arrows to the far left, it'll take you to a bunch of options. the first is "Choose a default web browser". If you [i]un-check]/i] the box by Internet Explorer, you will pretty much only be able to access it through the "run" prompt, if at all, and no third-party programs will open links in IE.
hope it helps!

Either you're clicking on the wrong spot, or your computer is freezing up. Does the link change color or light up right when you click on it? If so, it's not the link. Does your computer freeze up or does it just act like the links are useless?
