IE 8 unable to connect to internet even though firefox can

Had to go back to a restore point after problem with Vista. After that, had problems with Norton 360 (reloaded)-- it would not set to automatically check for updates-- and iTunes (reloaded)--could not make connection to iStore. I think, however, everything is related to IE 8 being unable to connect to internet. Firefox, which I use as default browser, connects so I didn't immediately see the problem. I assume both programs are trying to use IE and are blocked because IE cannot connect. Tried lots of fixes but nothing worked. Not a problem with DNS or updates (IE 7 now has same problem). I'm at a loss.

FIRST, Make sure you have the operating system restore or a copy of the operating system installation CD or DVD.
SECOND, download and run a full virus scan. To try to remove traces of the virus. Once your system is comprised you have no guarantee that a virus will re submerge.
THIRD, Back up all of your data, ie My Documtents, Favorites, Desktop, to blank CD or DVD. DO NOT BACKUP ANY EXECUTABLES.
FOURTH, Format and re-install the operating system. Return your backups as needed.

Internet explorer always shut down prematurely and closes down


Take internet explorer's properties and then use tab or click from mouse and choose advance tab. Now click on reset and restore advance settings. Now click on security tab and click on default level and reset all zones to default lever. Your problem will resolve and if you have registry file problem then you should use combofix utility but disable any antivirus or antispam or antispyware and then use it .You can download it from the link;

Vista: No internet after update


Perhaps your gateway has changed? Look in your network connections, or perhaps a proxy has been entered into the browser?

Error message when closing IE


Try Mozilla Firefox and see if the same thing happens. lol.. IE is a white elephant in general. You might need to go to add/remove programs and uninstall IE from the windows components section and reinstall it possibly, personally though I would not re-install IE after removing it though, lol. As urban dictionary defines Internet Explorer - a perfect program for downloading Mozilla Firefox, lol. Good Luck!

Good afternoon Laveda,

I have two fixes for you to try,

1. Right click the wireless icon in your task tray (bottom right of the screen). Select REPAIR from the pop up list. The wizard will run through it and you will hit finish or close at the end. Try Internet Explorer.

If that doesn't work...

2. Open Internet Explorer. From the File menu, Select Tools. Select Internet Options from the bottom of the drop down list. Select the Connections tab across the top. Click the LAN Settings button torwards the bottom. Make sure that "Automatically Detect Settings" is checked and nothing else. Close Internet Explorer, reopen Voila.

I hope this helps you out. Have a good day.

LinkedIn tanks at log in w/ Windows Vista, fine with prior operating systems


Hello,
It sounds like you have connection issues.
For starter please consider disabling your firewall (under control panel) then try connecting.
If this doesn't work please try reseting internet explorer settings (under explorer-tools).
Check with tech support of linkedln to see if they require special internet explorer security settings and have them walk you through your settings to make sure nothing has changed.
Last but not least I'd try to go to system restore and restore to a point where you are sure evrything had worked like couple of weeks ago or even one month ago if possible.
(start-programs-accessories-system tools-system restore).
The system restore tool doesn't erase or change any data although if installed any program since that point you are going to have to reinstall it since system restore will restore all registry information to that specific point and disregard everything you did afterwards, therefor I'm going to have to tell you to use at your own risk.
Good luck.
Thank you for using agadycom.
