Re: Internet explorer not opening (memory problem?)

If your system is running low on memory, the pc will not be able to run the programmes as normal as it will use virtual memory which enables the system to open up programmes that you use regularly without searching for the start up files reciding on the hard drive, but if your system is low you will get these screen messages. Either upgrade the system with more memory or check what programmes you have running on start up using your memory, press start>run, then type msconfig and look at the start up tab and untick any unnecassary programmes that start up,then click apply for a restart, as this will release some of your memory. On the other hand there may well be a problem with internet explorer itself also, so you can download the latest IE7 from microsoft if you wish and see if this solves the runtime issue

You click on the Internet Explorer icon, no thing happen, means: the program won't open or no website is opened in the page?

Hi wood_fami528,

If you cant open and run Internet Explorer it might be corrupted. There are some ways on how to diagnose if the Internet Explorer has been corrupted, try to use a different browser like Google chrome or Mozilla. Check if both browsers are working fine with your computer. If you can use other browser try to uninstall and reinstall the Internet Explorer. Here are the basic steps on how to reinstall it again.

1. Before you uninstall the program please make sure to download the latest Internet Explorer using a different browser.
--> you can download it here.

2. Uninstall the Internet Explorer by going to the control panel.
--> Click Start button, point to control panel, Add remove programs then click Internet Explorer then uninstall it.

3. After you uninstalled the Internet Explorer you may now restart the system.

4. Turn on the computer then install the latest Internet Explorer.

5. Restart again the computer and you should good by now.

-- if you're still experiencing the same issue, try to do a system restore.

Hope it helps.

Internet problem

Hi, Try deleting the temporary files on the temporary folders. Disconnect to your internet connection. Open up internet explorer browser. On the upper right of that page you should be able to see Tools. Select that. Look for Internet Options, which is usually at the bottom of that list. Under browsing history of the GENERAL Tab. Select settings. Now Select View files. Another window will come up. This is the Temporary folder. Delete all of the items present here. Now, try if the issue you are having still exist. If it does you need to reset the Internet Explorer.

Resetting the Internet Explorer:
1. Disconnect from the internet
2. Open up Internet Explorer again.
3. Click on Tools again.
4. Select Internet Options again
5. Go under the Advanced tab - Usually when you open up the Internet Options, the default tab is on General
6. Under Advanced tab Click on Reset

Try testing it again. Hope this helps you.
