Question about Computers & Internet

Microsoft Internet Explorer

Every time I log on my computer instead of getting my home page I get the Microsoft Internet Explorer page which requests you to upgrade to Explorer 7 or 8 . www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx
I already have 7 and do not want 8 at this time. How can I eliminate this page. Microsoft has been no help at all!

Well I'd consider this kind of a browser hijack.

You can download it here:

Hijackthis

I'm not sure how the new version is but the concept should be the same. Look for the www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx

entry and then have the program remove it.

You usually have to restart the browser and / or the computer for the settings to take effect.

Let me know if you have any trouble.

Best of luck!

I have Ie8 I got problem like: done but with error on page error on page


This is a bug with IE8. The easiest thing to do would be upgrade your internet explorer, which can be done at this link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home If you don't want to upgrade, then you'll have to live with this bug. The errors on page are caused by newer languages that the older browser can't understand to use.

Some time ago I downloaded Google to my computer and it took over and everytime I open Internet Explorer, I get the Google website. I want to go back to myTelus. Can you help?


It sounds like your default homepage has been changed.
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. In the Address box, type the Web page address that you want for your home page.
    NOTE: If you want the page that you are currently viewing in Internet Explorer to be your home page, click Use Current.
  5. Click OK

That should clear things up for you.

Dear Friend, You can only be signed in to one Yahoo! account at any given time on the same web browser. But it is possible for multiple accounts to be signed in simultaneously on the same computer using different browsers (for example, Robert on Firefox; Lovin Winter on Internet Explorer).


  • You can Upgrade Your Browser to Latest Version(If using Internet Explorer)

Number 1. Does your computer have all the resent updates? If you don't run updates, in the internet explorer go to "tools", "windows updates" and run all updates.

2. Have you tried clearing cookies and cache? Once again, in the internet explorer browser go to Tools, Internet Options, and there should be a "delete" option where you delete cookies and cache. You can also search for a folder on your C drive called "temporary internet files" and delete everything from there.

3. If the above doesn't work, try this site for help: http://www.facebook.com/help/?page=756

Internet exploer can find the internet i'm after but when i try to log on it has the follwoing error message: internet explorer can not display the web page. can you help me


Hi there,

You should bee able to see all the internet pages with internet explorer 7.

Try to use this browser instead to log in and see if you can instead. Firefox portable. You simply compy the content to a folder of your wish and find the folder and press on firefox file. If you do not wish to keep the browser you simply delete the folder.
OR you can also use the stable version of firefox, both links are provided here:

Firefox portable:
http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

Firefox (stable):
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html

IF it is working you need to reinstall your Internet Explorer, I suggest you use windows update to upgrade to Internet explorer 8, you find windows update many places, one place it is, is in internet explorer 7 under the menu tools (just next to help).

Hope that helps
IF NOT then return here
Have a nice Sunday

I can connect to the interent and see any page until i go to log onto a page like facebook, myspace, or other sites that requires being logged into. but if i do a system restore to an earlier date it works...


You are probably using Internet Explorer. I think maybe your security settings are set too tight.
Go to Tools>Internet Options>security and either set the security to default or lower them a little.
As an alternative, download Firefox and try logging on to those sites with that. You can get a copy of Firefox at www.mozilla.com

When i try to bring up internet explorer, i get a file pge instead....please help


Does this mean that you are "Working Offline" or the "Home Page" is not what you actually want¿ If the "Home Page" is what you are referring to the way to change it is to open Internet Explorer, and go to "Tools" "Internet Options". The first page will allow you to change the Home Page to a Blank Page, to Use Default (Usually is a Microsoft Page) or to use the page you are on presently as the Home Page. When you set the page to what you want all you do is to click "Ok"
