SOURCE: Getting message stating add-on was running when problem occurred

Try going into your control panel & uninstall your Internet explorer, then re-install it. IE7 uninstall can be found in the main add-remove program window, IE6 uninstall can be found under the add-remove windows components part of the add-remove programs. To re-install IE7, though, you need to go to windows update to download IE7 again. This won't be a problem because uninstalling IE7 automaticaly returns you to IE6

Had the same problem. Went to the IE8 home page (Microsoft). They are supporting IE8 at no cost until Dec 31. Wait time was minimal, tech took control of my computer and fixed the problem you described in a few seconds. Sorry, I do not remember the exact steps.

Dont know how to save to favourites


Favorites are Internet Explorer's Bookmarks. For Internet Explorer 8 and 9 just press on the Star on the top right corner. You can access, add, delete your Favorites from there.

I cant access facebook, INTERNET displays that 'web page cannot be displayed'


There are many reasons that Internet Explorer could be encountering this issue. Some examples are connectivity to your ISP, a firewall blocking your connection, or your networking device not functioning properly. Here are some things that you can try:
Method 1: Run the Network Diagnostics tool in Internet Explorer
1. Start Internet Explorer, and then try to access the Web page that is displaying the error message.
2. On the page that displays an Internet Explorer error message, click the Diagnose Connection Problems link. The Network Diagnostics tool will run. When the tool has finished running, it will report one of the following results:
    • It was unable to find a problem.
    • It has detected a problem. Additionally, the tool will provide guidance about the next steps to take to troubleshoot the problem.
3. Click IP Address, and note the IP Address. You may need it for future troubleshooting.
4. Follow the steps in the Network Diagnostics tool to fix any connection problems.
5. Start Internet Explorer.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 2: Reset the modem or the router
1. Disconnect the cable that connects the computer to the modem.
2. Turn off the modem and the router.
Note: If the modem or the router does not have a power switch, disconnect the power to the modem or to the router.
3. Restart the computer.
4. After your computer has restarted, turn on the modem or the router, connect the cable from the computer to the modem or the router, and restart the computer.
5. Make sure that all network cables are securely connected.
6. Start Internet Explorer.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 3: Use the Delete Browsing History feature
If resetting the modem or the router did not resolve the problem, deleting your browsing history might help. Follow these steps to remove your temporary Internet files, history, and form data:
1. Start Internet Explorer.
2. Click the Safety button, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. Select the check box next to each category of information you want to delete.
4. Select the Preserve Favorites website data check box if you do not want to delete the cookies and files associated with websites in your Favorites list.
5. Click Delete. (This could take awhile if you have a lot of files and history.)
6. Close Internet Explorer, start Internet Explorer again, and then try to access the Web page.
If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.
Method 4: Use the Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) mode
1. To do this, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

If this resolves the issue, follow these steps to isolate the browser add-on that is causing the issue:

  1. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Programs tab, and then click Manage add-ons.
  3. Click an add-on in the Name list, and then click Disable.
  4. Repeat step 3 until you identify the add-on that is causing the issue.

Sounds like you need to update internet explorer. Do you have automatic updates on? You can have two internet explorer windows open at the same time. If you have IE5, minimize the window and open another one the same way you opened the first one. You can download anything as long as your hard drive is big enough. Most are at least 60 gig now days and if your pc was purchased new within the last 5 years, its probally 160 gig or bigger. When you click a link to download something it will usally ask you if you want to save it or run it. Click save and then it will ask you where to save it to. Click the work "Desktop" on the left, then click SAVE. To save a site to favorites, click the star or the word favorites on the Internet Explorer window. Then click add to favorites. Make sure you are on the page you want to add to favorites first.

I have lost my yahoo tool bar


If you're using internet explorer then look up under the area where you put address in where it says File, Edit, VIEW, Favorites etc. Click on VIEW. then touch where it says TOOLBARS. At the bottom of that list you should see Yahoo Toolbar. If it's disappeared there won't be a check in front of it. But when you click on it, it will add one ...and it will again appear where it was before.

If it doesn't show on the list you have somehow lost the yahoo toolbar (I doubt that's the case) and will need to go download it again. In case you don't know this you will get the option to get the yahoo toolbar when you download yahoo messenger too...

I received e-mail from Yahoo request I upgrade to internet Explorer 9. After I download. I lost my FAVORITES. How I can get back?????


I unfortunately do not use internet explorer nine, but you can give this a quick whirl. If you're using windows XP, go to C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Favorites, and verify your favorites are still there. If they are, you should be able to click the drop down menu in the favorites menu (in internet explorer) that says "Add to favorites", on the drop down menu should be import / export. You can import your favorites folder from there.
If you use windows 7 or Vista the folder is C:\Users\Username\Favorites, and everything else should be the same. Hope this helps!
