Internet explorer 8 hangs on opening a web page


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

There could be several reasons why IE8 is hanging. If you're using Windows Vista / 7 you may want to upgrade to IE-9. Click here to download IE-9

If you're using Windows XP, you can try the following:

1) Click here to: Reset Internet Explorer settings

2) Click here for: What to do if Internet Explorer stops responding

3) Make sure you have Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3 installed on your PC. IE-8 only runs correctly with SP2 or SP3.

4) Re-install IE-8. Click here to Download IE-8 If you can't get to the internet on your PC with IE-8, use another browser if you have one. If you don't have another browser installed on your PC, download Firefox or Google Chrome to a USB thumb-drive from another computer and download one of them to your PC from there.

5) If you've (either, by accident or intentionally) downloaded a third-party browser helper, there may be a software conflict causing IE-8 to hang. To check, go to your Control Panel and select 'Add or Remove Programs'. Look to see if there is a 'third party' browser helper installed. If so, uninstall it.

6) If you're able to get to the Internet at all, go to Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) - download and install it. Click here to download. You may have something on your PC that MSE can help you with.

7) Make sure you have enough RAM in your PC. At the very minimum, Windows XP needs 512Mb of RAM. 1GB is better.

Hopefully this will help.

For All XP user Don't Use IE 7.0 & higher version



Applicable for all window XP (all edition, all PCs and Laptops)

Hi there,
If you are getting trouble after the updates of internet explorer..

Then I would suggest you to Roll Back it to the original Internet Explorer (i.e Internet Explorer version 6.0)

Which come up with Installation of Win Xp with Service Pack 2.

Bad Effect due to IE 7.0 or higher version:

Screen hang up, internet freezes abruptly, prominent windows crashes anytime.

So to stop these problems, better to run with lower and safe version of IE:

To remove Internet Explorer 7 from your PC use the following methods

Method 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Step 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b In the Open box, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.

c. In the list of programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 7, and then click Remove.

d. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7. Also remove if any updates under this entry found.

If you cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 7 by using this method, try Method 2.

Method 2: Use Spuninst.exe to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Run Spuninst.exe to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b. In the Open box, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then click OK.

c. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.

After you uninstall Internet Explorer 7, double-click the Internet Explorer icon to verify that Internet Explorer 6 is restored.

This will bring up you to run Internet explorer as it come up with the installation kit, which is safe and reliable.

Have Nice Surfing!!

My computer hung when the two anti virus executes at the same time, because i install them both, how can i solve this problem?


one of the basic things of using windows is not to install and work with two anti-virus at same time.
so delete one of them.
if you can't even work with windows, reinstall your windows
or go to windows from safe mode (pressing f+8 before loading windows and choosing safe mode)

Go to this link and download Mozilla Firefox. It's a much better browser.

After setup click on the "Tools" menu and scroll down to add-ons.

Search add-ons for W.O.T., Pitch Dark theme, Windows Update

and Cooliris.

Cannot download executable files.


Ok, the first thing to check is whether or not the system is infected.
Goto http://onecare.live.com/site/en-gb/default.htm and choose the Beta edition for Vista.

Follow the on-screen instructions and let this run (it will take a while, so you may want to put a film on). Keep an eye on it, as it may ask you for some actions. If nothing bad is found or after cleaning this still happens then please follow these next steps.

Did you install Service Pack 1 via Windows Update?

This has caused problems with alot of programs and systems, as it doesn't always install all the bits that your system needs. You need to uninstall the Service Pack. Please use this link to find out how:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948537/en-us

Now the thing is, you really need the Service Pack. Once you have uninstalled it and restarted the computer, you need to ignore any Windows Update/Automatic Update messages that may pop up for the moment.

You need to download and install the complete Service Pack 1. Just click on this link and press download: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b0c7136d-5ebb-413b-89c9-cb3d06d12674&DisplayLang=en

As this is the complete Five Language pack, 434MB, it may take awhile depending on your internet speed. I would recommend this anyway, as it would sort out any other bugs/problems that you may not have noticed.

Anyway, have fun, and let me know how you get on.
