Restoring Computer to earlier state is the best solution. Only update the Internet explorer by using online updates that is downloaded from Microsoft website. WebRepOverall ratingThis site has no rating(not enough votes)

Also try to update the drivers that control your PC.

If problem still occurs then use system utility tool PCFresher that will fix windows internal errors and will fix corrupt registry errors.

SOURCE: Security updates seem to be preventing IE7 from opening

Make a system restore point, install one update at a time and if you run into the same problem, restore. As for the MS newsgroup... are you registered and logged in? I would also recommend regular backups of your computer. Save the backups separately from the computer for safety.

SOURCE: Not Installing XP SP3 Updates Given By Microsoft KB 936929.

if you don't want to install those updates you should have switch off your automatic updates. the problem is the your computer might not be compaitble with the update which was sent to you.XP SP3 have a higher system and hardware requirements than xp sp2. in order to resolve your problem you need to run your xp sp2 and press repair instead of format in this way it can return to your original system. you can also try the system restore press the start, all programs look for the system tools then system restore check what date you installed this sp3 then select the day before you installed this in order for you to return to your original operating system. hoping that this will help you, expecting your positive response.

SOURCE: internet options in IE 8 not working

You could have a virus or trojan in your temp files, start your pc in safe mode, usually tap f8 when starting, try to run internet options
and delete all temp and cookies. I would go to AVIRA and run there online anti-virus scanner. they are the top anti-virus software on the planet,next is Kaspersky then Eset Nod 32.

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.

Hi josephc_agni,

You cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 8 if it is set as not removable. This occurs if you install Internet Explorer 8 before you install Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. If this scenario applies to you, then you must uninstall SP3 before you can uninstall Internet Explorer 8.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs.
  4. In the list of currently installed programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 8, and then click Remove.

    NOTE: If Windows Internet Explorer 8 does not appear in the list of installed updates, try the alternative step given below.
  5. Follow the instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
ALTERNATIVE STEP:

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, follow these steps:
  1. Carefully select and then copy the following command: %windir%\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type Cmd.exe, and then press ENTER.
  4. Right-click inside the Cmd.exe window, and then click Paste to paste the command that you copied in step 1.
  5. Press ENTER to uninstall Internet Explorer 8.
  6. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.

it)?

Unable to load internet explorer 8 on my window xp Prof sp2


Install SP3 and any other updates first.

IE 8.0 was also offered as part of sp3.

It may well depend on some of the updates to be installed.
