Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

2 Answers

I cannot browse the internet with IE

I'm connected to the internet and all other functions of my computer are working; I can download email, etc. Just cannot get internet explorer to work. Seems my problem is isolated to IE. My computer has recently been updated from Microsoft but hasn't solved the problem.

    I don't ever get a message. The status bar shows about 1/3 progress and in the message bar at the bottom, it says connecting to site.

    I've installed firefox from a usb stick and can now get to the internet. I figure my IE needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled. Thanks for all the help.

Ok, could be quite simple or more complicated difficult to know at the moment
first its a good idea to check that you can actually connect to sites
if you can then its more likely a problem with explorer
click the start button, then click "run" when the dialouge box appears type "cmd"
A black window should appear type "ping google.com"
C:\Documents and Settings\Nick>ping google.com

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 93ms, Maximum = 98ms, Average = 95ms
does this appear? Next it would help to know how you connect to the internet i,e wirless router? Which operating system do you use , vista , xp etc ? Which version of internet explore are you using? And also what updates did you install recently was it a service pack update if so was it sp1 or sp2 etc as there are some known issues with update and internet connectivity
see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331906
Another potentialy simple soloution might be to to download another browser like "firefox" from another computer put it on a usb stick and the transfer to your pc, install firefox onto your pc and see if it allows you to connect to websites

good luck, would like to know how it turns out

My yahoomail contacts are not loading ion any of my accounts on 2 different browsers. What to do?


DELETE BROWSING HISTORY / RESET IE
Try deleting browsing history in your browser. If you're using Internet Explorer (IE), - Open up any IE window - Go to SAFETY>DELETE BROWSING HISTORY - And then restart your computer.
You can also try RESETTING Internet Explorer. It will put all of the IE's settings to the default but it will not erase your bookmarks. - Just open up any IE window - Go to TOOLS> INTERNET OPTIONS> A window will popup. - Go to ADVANCED Tab and click RESET.

You can also try using SYSTEM RESTORE to go back to a date where you were able to use your computer normally. - Just click START - Type SYSTEM RESTORE on SEARCH PROGRAMS AND FILES Bar - Hit ENTER and then just follow the steps.
If that doesn't work, there may be a third party software that's causing the issue or it could be a virus attack.
Hope this helps

My yahoomail wont open


Most of the time, the internet browser is the problem when a page won't load up. If you're accessing your Yahoo! Mail everyday, there will come a time that your browser will be filled out with cookies and cache.

However, you must try to isolate first, to make sure that the problem is the browser and not the Yahoo! Mail sign in page. Here are the things that you may try:

1. Try to use different internet browser and access your Yahoo! Mail. If the sign in page loads up, then it's the browser.

2. Try to access the Yahoo! Mail in a different computer that is connected to a different network.

If the problem is only happening in one browser, then it's the browser. You may try to clear the cookies and cache. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer
- Open your IE > Tools > Internet Options
- Click the "Delete" button under the browsing history.
- Select cookies, internet files, etc.
- Select "Delete All".
- Close and re-open your IE.
- Try to access your Yahoo! Mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox
- Open Firefox > Tools > Clear Recent History.
- Select cookies, cache, browsing and download, etc.
- Click on "Clear Now"
- Close and re-open your Firefox
- Try to access your Yahoo! Mail.

Thank you and good luck!

How does gps operate


Hi. The GPRS(56kbs) is used to connect your device to internet to browse and retrieve emails. It's the 1st generation of "high speed" connection. Then there's a EDGE (238kbs) often called 2.5G network.Renoir should support 3G (speed 384kbs) with HSDPA(3.6MBs). Basically it's to same as GPRS just up/download speed is different. To have it in working order you'll need correct settings includes :APN,password etc. In most cases thei are preinstalled on your device.
Rate me if helped.Thanks.

Internet explorer not responding


I will tell you the easiest way to fix this issue.

Get yourself some blank CDs or a flash drive.
Find a computer with Internet access (such as your local library, at a friend/relative's house, work, etc.).
You had to have access to the Internet to post this problem...go back and use the computer you used to access this site.
Download the installation file for Internet Explorer then save to your disk or flash drive.
Uninstall IE and re-install it using the file that you have downloaded.

While you're downloading Internet EXPLODER (YES I MEANT WHAT I TYPED), you should also download Firefox (free Web browser) and install it too. I promise you'll hardly use IE anymore and Firefox is more secure than using IE (as it is a component of Windows making you more vulnerable to security risks).

Well, if you still have the problem or ever do in the future, I hope this helps anyone who sees it.

C500 won't turn on msn


Look on the upper Icon Bar.In the very center you should see an Icon indicating what data service your phone is connecting with. G for GPRS or E for EDGE, etc.

I assume you can make voice calls and SMS works? MSN is an IE internet email service. Check to see if you can browse the internet. If not, this may be a WAP network setup problem. Check with your carrier, or on google the internet on you PC for the correct data setting for your carrier. You SIM card has your carrier printed on it.
