Cant open internet options

How to Open Internet Options
Each browser has a way to customize it, and you do it using Internet Options. With Internet Options, you can specify your privacy settings, security and your home page with a few clicks of your mouse. Knowing how to open Internet options is essential to preventing hackers from accessing your computer or keeping people from viewing your Internet history. Opening the window in Firefox, Internet Explorer, or with your computer's control panel is not a difficult task.
1 Launch the Firefox browser.
2 Go to the toolbar at the top of the browser and select "Tools."
3 Move the mouse pointer down the tool menu until you get to "Options." Click on that word. Your Firefox Internet Options will immediately open.

Internet Explorer
1 Launch the Internet Explorer browser.
2 Click on the "Tools" menu located on the tool bar, at the top of the browser.
3 Move the mouse cursor down that menu until you get to "Internet Options." Left click on those words. Your Internet Options window will immediately open.

Computer Control Panel
1 Go to the Start Menu.
2 Click on the "Control Panel."
3 Click "Network Internet Options." Then, Click "Internet Options." You will be able to change Internet Explorer options, but not those of other browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome

IE and Google Chrome will notconnect to the internet. Firefox will. I previously deleted the antivirfox virus which was causing everything to not connect to the internet. How do I get IE and Chrome to...

It is possible you still have a virus on your computer preventing Internet Explorer and Chrome. I recommend making sure your virus scanner is updated, and doing a complete scan of your hard drive.

In addition, it is possible that a virus on your computer has changed your proxy settings (which could explain why Firefox works while IE and Chrome do not). To verify that there are no proxy settings on Internet Explorer, open the application. Assuming you are using IE8 (other versions should be similar), go to Tools, and Internet Options. You can configure your proxy settings from the Connections tab, and clicking "Settings" for any applicable connections.

If you are using a direct connection to the internet (i.e., Cable or through a router), Never dial a connection should be selected. If this area is grayed out and there are no connections, this is not likely the problem.

Finally, make sure you are not working offline. Click tools once again, and make sure Work Offline does not have a check mark by it. This may be under the File menu on different versions of Internet Explorer.

Internet explorer wont open on my dell inspiron 1501, i have internet connection

try going to safemode w/ networking.

if you're using windows XP try this

to access that mode, shutdown the computer completely and after 20 secs turn in on again, as soon as you see the dell screen immediately strike F8 key continuously, if that is successful you should be at the advance menu options. use your arrow keys to choose and highlight safemode w/ networking and hit enter. if you see your operating system after just hit enter again.

once at safemode try to pull up internet explorer if still this doesnt work, go to the contol panel click internet options if your in classic view but if not click network connections first then click internet options. click the advance tab, that should be at the least right hand side, click reset which is under restore advance settings.

if your using IE8 at windows XP operating system, try uninstalling the IE8, to do that try the instructions below.

click start
click control panel
click add/remove program
find and click the IE8 then click uninstall or remove
then restart the computer

if still doesnt work try to install a different browser like mozilla firefox, google chrome or maxthon

and if still doesnt work then try to reinstall the operating system back to factory settings.

i hope this helps
Pls rate my resolution thanks!!

IE8 cannot connect to the internet but Yahoo messenger and outlook can.

First check your firewall to make sure it is not blocking IE8 from internet access. If it isn't. the next thing to check is your proxy, you can go here. Tools, Internet Options, Connections Tab, at the bottom right. Click on Lan Settings, make sure nothing is checked.

If these two solutions still do not work. goto internet options and then advanced tab. and reset your IE8 browser to the factory default settings.

I hope this works for you!

Internet explorer unhandled third party exception

Are you using IE7 or IE8? In XP and Vista they should install an Internet Explorer (No Add-ins) option. In XP it is installed to All Programs>Accessories>System Tools. Try running that option - if all is okay without add-ins then it is one of these going wrong. You can manage the add-ons through Control Panel>Internet Options. On the Programs Tab Hit Manage Add-ons at the bottom. Disable any non-microsoft ones and start IE. You can then add each one back in one at a time until the issue arrives again. When it does disable that Add-in and you should be okay.

When I try to close a page on the internet it tells me something is trying to open on my computer and no matter if I push don't allow or allow it tells me internet has stopped working and sends me to

I have experienced the problem on several system both XP and Vista with IE8, there definately seems to be a bug with it. I removed it. On Vista, I couldn't even go to add/remove programs. I downloaded a tool from MS to remove it. You can access the tool here:

Remove it, don't waste more time and effort. Wait until Microsoft addresses issues with IE8. Good luck! Let me know how you all make out.

Yahoo messenger window not responding

There are still some compatibility problems with Internet Explorer 8. One common problem seems to be with add-ons in the browser itself that create conflicts. The workaround seems to be to disable all add-ons, (including your Yahoo messenger), then add them back in one at a time to see which is causing the conflict. You could try this and see if the Yahoo works with IE8 before adding in the others. There is also the option to run IE8 with no add-ons, and see if the problems persist.(Rt. click icon to start)
Or you could search the newsgroups at MS and see if anyone there has a solution. This is pretty new, as you know, but MS support has been working through these issues since the beta versions and has a more heads up understanding of the what's involved. They can be accessed by clicking here.
Or you can try using IE8 in compatibility mode for particular sites you have trouble with, but I suspect that if Yahoo doesn't have an update for the messenger that fixes the problem you may have to revert back to Internet Explorer 7 for awhile....

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Acer Aspire M1100

Welcome to beta testing -you now have feedback for Microsoft! The way to uninstall IE8 in Vista is to go to Control Panel>Programs>Uninstall Programs (where you find IE8 conspicuous in it's absence!) and check the View Updates box then scroll through the Windows updates for the Internet Explorer 8 Beta update, highlight and uninstall. Microsoft always shoots it self in the foot with Internet Explorer, especially with Vista which drove me to use Google's new Chrome browser which has saved me alot of frustration. When I need to use Internet Explorer I go to the Programs menu, right click on Internet Explorer and select 'Run as administrator' (yes I am already administrator but Vista wants to show me what a security-conscious weanie it was developed by) and that solves some annoyances.
As for the proprietary Empowerment by Acer, the name is an oximoron with regards to Vista. Uninstalling that and letting Windows run your network will lead to a more uneventful Internet experience which the developers and 'architecture geniuses' today have completely undervalued for their customer's happiness. Otherwise get to know how to set up profiles in that enet. Hope this helps but now am going back to reinventing the wheel for my own amusement. ~Steve Medley
