Check the privacy settings and see if they are too strict this will cause some sites to not download. In Internet Explorer click tools>Intenet options>privacy. It should be set to medium so no cookies are blocked. If this is ok then yes you are having hardware connectivity problems. You're losing the connection before it can reach the site.

Registry errors


You may have encountered the following message while browsing certain websites:

"Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://<website>.com. Operation aborted."


This really has nothing to do with your browser or your computer. You get this error because of faulty web coding from the webmaster's end.

IE displays this error when it is unable to open a particular element on a web page.


There are many things you can do to troubleshoot this kind of problem.


Upgrade Internet Explorer.

This problem does not occur in Internet Explorer 8. Navigate to Microsoft download Center and click on the "Download" button to upgrade to IE8 or IE9 (see Below).


http://download.cnet.com/windows-internet-explorer-8/3000-2356_4-10910662.html

IE 8


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx

IE 9


Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options." Hit the "Advanced" tab.

Click to remove the check mark next to "Show friendly HTTP error messages" under "Browsing" sub-headings.


Click on "Apply" and hit "OK." Please note this works mostly for Internet Explorer 6, although there is no harm in trying this on older or newer versions.


Add the specific website that is producing "Operation aborted" error under "Restricted Sites."


Click on the "Security" tab under "Internet Options."

Single-click to highlight "Restricted Sites."


Hit on the "Sites" button and click on "Add."

Type the URL of the website and hit "OK."


This works for Internet Explorer 7, but again, you can try this in earlier versions.


Disable or require prompt for "Active Scripting" when you view the specific website.

Click on the "Security" tab.


Click to highlight 'Restricted Sites" zone.

Navigate down to the sub-heading "Scripting."


Click to select "Disabled" under "Active Scripting."

You may also choose "Prompt" if you want IE to issue a prompt when opening the specific web page or website.


If you are still worried about the registry or need to fix any problems with it

You can run a free registry scan using utilities from http://re7.info

Hope this helps.

I have been trying to get on facebook but everytime I try an error message from Internet Explorer pops up saying "cannot display webpage" Please help


Open Internet Explorer, click on tools then internet options. In the first tab, under browsing history select delete... have check marks in everything except Form data, Passwords, and InPrivate Filtering data. Now click delete. Depending on how full you histroy is, this can take a bit to complete. Once completed, close IE and try to log back into facebook. If this still does not work, search for facebook on google, and try again. If the search option works, delete you current shortcut to facebook and re-add from the open page.


I hope this helps

Im not getting a compete picture when my computor is on theinternet.


To correct this issue, follow the methods that are described in this section in the order in which they are presented until the issue is resolved.

These methods are designed for beginning to intermediate computer users. After each method, refresh Internet Explorer to check whether the problem is resolved. If the problem is not resolved, try the next method. Method 1: See whether pictures are available on another Web site loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Sometimes the link to a picture on a Web site is broken, and that is why a picture is not being displayed. Visit another Web site to determine whether pictures are being displayed correctly on it. If they are being displayed correctly, then there is nothing wrong with Internet Explorer. Instead, the Web site that you are visiting might be broken.

If you can view pictures on another Web site, you are finished. If you do not see any pictures or if you cannot determine whether the Web site that you are visiting is broken, try clearing your temporary Internet files by using method 2.

Note If you use Internet Explorer 8, try Compatibility View. To do this, start Internet Explorer 8, click Compatibility View Settings on the Tools menu, and then add the Web site that you want to view by using Compatibility View. Method 2: Clear temporary Internet files loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Clearing your temporary Internet files creates more space on your hard disk. If your hard disk is close to being full, this could affect your ability to view pictures on a Web site.

To clear temporary Internet files, follow these steps:

Internet Explorer 8
  1. Start Internet Explorer 8.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. On the General tab, click Delete under Browsing History.
  4. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, click to clear all of the check boxes except for the Temporary Internet Files check box, and then click Delete.
  5. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Internet Explorer 7
  1. Start Internet Explorer 7.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Delete Browsing History.
  3. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, click Delete Files.
  4. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Internet Explorer 6 and earlier versions
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the General tab, click Delete Files under Temporary Internet files.
  3. Click to select the Delete all offline content check box, and then click OK.
  4. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Check whether you can now see pictures. If you still cannot see pictures, try method 3. Method 3: Verify that the Show Pictures option has not been turned off loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If the Show Pictures option in Internet Explorer is turned off, you cannot see pictures. To determine whether the Show Pictures option is turned off, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Advanced tab, and then verify that the Show Pictures check box is selected under Multimedia.
  3. Click OK.
Determine whether you can now see pictures

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Method 1: Clear cached data in Internet Explorer
To determine whether a performance issue or an error message is caused by corruption in the temporary Internet files or in other cached information that is used by Internet Explorer, you must clear cached data. To do this, follow these steps:

Internet Explorer 7

1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click OK.
Run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode
Internet Explorer add-ons, such as ActiveX controls and browser toolbars, are used by some Web sites to provide an enhanced browsing experience. An error may occur if an add-on is damaged or if an add-on conflicts with Internet Explorer. To determine whether the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box.
2. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons). Internet Explorer opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins.
3. Test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly

You might be having a DNS problem. DNS (Domain name system) is responsible for changing the website name to the address (where the website is stored). You can try openDNS (www.opendns.com) The site can be confusing so here are the instructions. 1. Go to control panel > network connections 2. Choose the connection that gives you internet, right click on it and Click properties 3. Now select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click properties 4. Check the box that says "Use the following DNS addresses" 5. Enter the following values (addresses) 208.67.222.222 208.67.220.220

Error message


The most common cause of this issue is not restarting the computer following the installation of Internet Explorer 7. It seems that if you do not restart Windows immediately after the installation has completed, it causes some side-effects, particularly the error you describe. This may not have been your fault, as the Internet Explorer 7 update may have been automatically downloaded and installed from the Windows Update website. After the update was installed, and you were prompted to restart, you might have elected not to restart (as you did not realise the implications of such) and thus now the program does not work correctly. In this case, the workaround for the issue is to uninstall Internet Explorer 7, through the “Add/Remove Programs” control panel, and then reinstall Internet Explorer 7. Make sure you restart the computer once the installation has completed!

Apart from reinstalling Internet Explorer 7 I was unable to find any other workarounds for the problem. Some users have reported having to reinstall Windows, but this is only in extreme cases. In the worst case, you may have to just uninstall Internet Explorer 7 and go back to using Internet Explorer 6. However, I imagine you might like the new Internet Explorer 7 features such as tabbed browsing. Should this be the case, and you are unable to resolve the problem with Internet Explorer 7, perhaps another alternative is to try Mozilla Firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/firefox). This is a very popular free open-source web browser, with many of the same features (tabbed browsing, RSS integration, etc.). This could be a useful compromise if you are still unable to get Internet Explorer 7 to work correctly.
