    Have you tried downloading a different browser (Firefox for example, available for free at www.mozilla.com) to see if the problem is a general connection or computer security setting or if it is a problem just with Internet Explorer?

If you are using IE8, you may want to change the Compatibility View settings for that site. If you "are" using IE7, it may be settings on the "Advanced" tab of the Options dialog you need to tweak.

How to get gmail to accept cookies


When you visit a website, the server may place a cookie on your hard drive.

How to kill pages


A bit vague what type of pages ?
You might have to kill the tracking cookies

Websites use small files called "cookies" to track their visitors' use of the site (e.g., when they visit, whether they logged in or not and what pages they visited). Unfortunately, some unscrupulous website owners use cookies to track visitors' entire Internet usage, including visits to secure websites with private information. If you have been on websites that you don't trust, you should kill your cookies to avoid potential security problems.
Open Internet Explorer, click on the "Tools" menu, then select "Internet Options." Click on the "Delete" button in the "Browsing history" section of the dialog box. Select the "Cookies" check box, then click on the "Delete" button to clear your cookies. b> Firefox b> Open Firefox, click to open the "Tools" menu on the menu bar, then choose "Clear Recent History." Select "Everything" from the "Time range to clear" drop-down menu, then click to check the check box next to "Cookies." Click on the "Clear Now" button. Hope this helps/

I have attempted to delete browser history using ''internet options and selecting all available delete options. However the browsing history still appears in the drop down box on the top toolbar...


Click on the wrench on the top right end of the screen. Click on Options. Click on Under the Hood.The first setting you will see is: Privacy. Under/near that, there are two buttons, the first: Content Settings. The second: Clear browsing data.Click on 'Clear browsing data'.Make sure to click on the drop down list, which will be the first option on the pop up, and select 'beginning of time'. Then check out all the boxes, click on 'Clear Browsing Data' wait for the pop up to close on its own, then you are done with it!
Good Luck!

How do i empty cach.


spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif A full browser cache can slow down your surfing experience. When the cache is full, the browser has to search for the oldest cache segment and delete it before writing the new segment. Since all browsers cache pages as they go, it's easy to see how a full cache can lead to problems. It's a good idea to get in the habit of emptying your cache on a regular basis, generally after you finish your web surfing for the day. To empty the cache in Microsoft's Internet Explorer, follow these steps:
Open Internet Explorer (you don't have to be online) and click on tools/internet options.
Under Temporary Internet Files, click on delete files.

Script problem in Explorer 8


What should you do about Internet Explorer script errors?

In most cases, you can ignore them. Script error messages are displayed by Internet Explorer when there is a problem with the JavaScript or VBScript code on the website you are viewing. Occasionally a script error can be caused by an error in downloading a webpage, but more often it is an error in the webpage itself.

To be sure it isn't an error in downloading, click the Refresh button, or press F5.

getcontent.aspx?assetid=6d65df30-1154-45a1-9855-1232c6b27475&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=usInternet Explorer refresh button

If the error persists, and you are not a developer testing a website, you should click No to ignore the error.


To avoid script errors in the future, you can turn off script debugging and notifications in Internet Explorer. Script error debugging and notifications are turned off by default. If they have been turned on, follow these steps to turn them off again.


  1. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

2. Click the Advanced tab, select the Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer) and Disable script debugging (Other) check boxes.

3. Clear the Display a notification about every script error check box, and then click OK.
