Hi egwagsi,

Try to reset your internet settings to their defaults. You can do that by following these steps:

Start Internet Explorer.
First, click the "Tools" menu, then click "Internet Options".
Click the "Advanced" tab and then click "Reset".
In the dialogue box that appears, click "Reset".
I hope this helps.
Adam.

I need a fix for internet exployer


Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) browser includes "add-on" applications that can be downloaded and installed from Microsoft, or third-party providers, into Internet Explorer.


Occasionally, add-ons may conflict with other add-ons or software on the computer, causing errors.

These can also occur when IE settings conflict with newly installed add-ons.


Resolve add-on related error conditions quickly in IE8 by resetting Internet Explorer to Microsoft defaults.


Click the "Start" button. Click "Run" or "Search," and type "inetcpl.cpl in the "Run" or "Search" box, and press the "Enter" key.


Select the "Advanced" tab in the "Internet Options" window, then click the "Reset" button.

Click the "Reset" button again to confirm that you wish to reset Internet Explorer to Microsoft defaults.


Select the "Close" button, once the display indicates that the reset process has been completed.

Click the red "X" in the upper-right corner of Internet Explorer to close the browser.


Open Internet Explorer and the errors should be resolved.


also

Experience problems with Internet Explorer 7 right off the bat, and it may be due to installation problems.

Make sure you reboot twice after installing the new browser.


Download any updates for IE7.

Check the Microsoft website for recommended updates if you don't have automatic updates turned on for your computer.


Check your add-ons, those "extras" like ActiveX controls for your browser, if you still experience problems.


After accessing "manage add-ons" through the "Tools" menu in your browser window, disable all add-ons, and try browsing.


If you can successfully browse without errors on the page, then one of your add-ons may be the culprit. Enable add-ons one at a time and try browsing.


Once you find the problem, delete it or update the add-on to work with Internet Explorer 7.


Contact Microsoft if a website denies permission for entering when it shouldn't.


It could be a problem with document. domain property or the protocols of the URLs not matching.


Update and run the most recent version of JavaScript. JavaScript is a scripting language used on many websites.


Adjust security settings in the browser if you still experience page error messages.


Select the "Tools" menu and access "Internet Options." Under the "Security" tab, choose "Custom Level" to pull up the security settings window and review for possible problems.


Hope this helps

Keep getting connecting tab


Open your Internet Option in the control panel and go to the advanced tab and click the RESET tab to reset internet explorer to it's default settings.

If that don't solve the problem try a better browser. Internet Explorer is the worst browser there is.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome.Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they arefaster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download MozillaFirefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefoxfrom Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on themto go to their site to do the download and install.

My internet explorer is closed i want to re open


Hi,

What do you mean exactly by closed? You don't have say the exact information or massage which appears while you try to operate your internet explorer. It may be disabled by the work offline option. Go to the File tab on the above of the Internet explorer window and disable the work offline mode by clicking on Work Offline if it is ticked out. If it doesn't help you then download newer version of Internet explorer from web site and install it, or upgrade your Internet explorer.

Yahoo email will not open after I did file recovery on computer.


It is a good idea to let Windows Update fetch all the patches and security fixes for your system, as many are specifically for Internet Explorer.

After you are sure your system is up to date, open your Internet Explorer browser:

1) Click "Tools" > Select "Internet Options"

2) Click the "Security" Tab

3) Highlight "Internet" as the zone to change

4) Click "Custom level..."

5) Scroll down the options:

Under "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" select "Enable"

Under "Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting" select "Enable"

6) Click <OK> to close this window, then <OK> again to close the Internet Options dialog box.

7) Close your Internet Explorer browser

8) Reboot your computer

Try your Yahoo! Mail again. I hope this helps!

Internet explorer closes down after 45 secs, no warning just shuts down, firefox also shuts down. Only on laptop and after microsoft updates had been added. Restored to time prior to updates but problem...


Try Resetting Internet Explorer to its default settings. This removes all changes made to Internet Explorer since it was installed, but does not eliminate your bookmarks or feed. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Close all Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer in Windows.
2. Click Start, And then click Internet Explorer.
3. In Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu and then click Internet Options.
4. Click the Advanced tab and then click Reset.
5. In the readjustment of Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
6. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK twice.
7. Close Internet Explorer and then reopen it.

If resetting Internet Explorer to its default settings does not fix the problem, uninstall Internet Explorer 8 and then reinstall it. Also run AdAware, scanned for viruses, disable 3rd party, disable microsoft firewall, and check for BHO's.
