Internet Explorer 8 External Link Problem

Internet Explorer 8. I just recently installed this, problem is, if I don't have the browser open and use an external link, i.e. from Yahoo Messengers "get mail" button, or a message in which I recieved a link in either Yahoo or Xfire, the webpage will not open.. I get an error message stating that it cannot find the link.. and the browser opens.. but connects to nothing. IF however, the Internet Explorer browser is already opened, links work without a problem and open in a new tab. NO clue what is causing this. Have any of you?

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.

Internet explorer 8 hangs on opening a web page


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

There could be several reasons why IE8 is hanging. If you're using Windows Vista / 7 you may want to upgrade to IE-9. Click here to download IE-9

If you're using Windows XP, you can try the following:

1) Click here to: Reset Internet Explorer settings

2) Click here for: What to do if Internet Explorer stops responding

3) Make sure you have Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3 installed on your PC. IE-8 only runs correctly with SP2 or SP3.

4) Re-install IE-8. Click here to Download IE-8 If you can't get to the internet on your PC with IE-8, use another browser if you have one. If you don't have another browser installed on your PC, download Firefox or Google Chrome to a USB thumb-drive from another computer and download one of them to your PC from there.

5) If you've (either, by accident or intentionally) downloaded a third-party browser helper, there may be a software conflict causing IE-8 to hang. To check, go to your Control Panel and select 'Add or Remove Programs'. Look to see if there is a 'third party' browser helper installed. If so, uninstall it.

6) If you're able to get to the Internet at all, go to Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) - download and install it. Click here to download. You may have something on your PC that MSE can help you with.

7) Make sure you have enough RAM in your PC. At the very minimum, Windows XP needs 512Mb of RAM. 1GB is better.

Hopefully this will help.

Trying to disable/turnoff ie8 in dell latitude 610


Disable Internet Explorer 8 from Windows 7
1. Click on the Start Menu and go to Control Panel. Change the View by category to Large or Small icons then from the Control Panel list go into Programs and Features.
2. In the Programs and Features window click on the "Turn Windows features on or off" link on the left hand side. The Windows Features screen opens up, uncheck the box next to Internet Explorer 8.
3. You will get a confirmation box when you uncheck it saying it may affect other Windows features. It will if you don't have another browser installed but otherwise everything that usually opens in IE will open in your default browser.
4. After verifying you want to turn it off click OK. You will get a progress notification while Windows turns off IE 8. Restart the system.
5. After restarting, you will notice Internet Explorer 8 is no longer there. Anything you had linked to IE will be associated with another browser if you have one installed. It will also no longer appear in the Set Default Programs section.
6. If you go to the Open With list in Explorer you will see a generic Internet Browser icon that will open up whatever is your default browser.

Since installing windows8, I cannot connect to the Internet via Desktop, I have to go through Mozilla Firefox???


I am hoping that you meant "windows 7" and not windows 8, as there is no such thing as windows 8, only windows 7 premature builds.
You could never connect to the internet via desktop. Mozilla firefox is an internet browser, just as microsoft internet explorer is an internet browser.
You can configure which browser is automatically brought up by opening internet explorer (Start>Internet Explorer) and selecting "use this browser as my default browser".

Ever since upgrading to Internet Explorer 8, I find that I cannot print emails, open up many attachments, and retrieve other information. For example, if I click on a link, I get the following message:...


Ther are known conflicts with Vista and IE8 - particularly with Vista 64-bit.

I would suggest uninstalling IE8 and reinstalling IE7 or using an alternative browser such as "slimbrowser" (excellent program) or similar.

IE8 can be uninstall by using Add or Remove Programs module in Windows XP, but in Windows Vista, Windows Internet Explorer 8 is not considered to be a ‘program’. Instead, IE8 is categorizing as an ‘update’. Thus, users will not be able to find Windows Internet Explorer 8 in “Programs and Features” of Windows Vista.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, go to Control Panel, and click on Uninstall Programs link or Programs and Features icon. Then on Tasks pane on the left, click on View installed updates link. Locate and select Windows Internet Explorer 8 in the list of installed updates, and then click on Uninstall button. Click on Yes when asked that are you sure want to uninstall the update.

If there is no option of IE8 been found on “Programs and Features” or “Add or Remove Programs” dialog box, or uninstallation of Internet Explorer 8 is unclean (causing error message such as setup cannot continue because a more recent version of Internet Explorer has been detected on this computer when trying to downgrade to IE7), try to manually run the spuninst.exe.
To do so, go to C:\WINDOWS\ie8\spuninst\ folder (your drive letter may be different), and run spuninst.exe.

Restart the computer after uninstallation completed.

Hope that helps :)

I keep getting this error about a line and character not being In the library? internet explorer


Hi poltergist22

Normally the easiest thing to do with internet explorer is to install it again.

Try to first install it over the old Internet explorer and see if it works.

If not:
try to uninstall it first, then restart the computer and then reinstall the software (IE8). For this action I advice you to have another browser in case internet explorer should not work, at least to have Firefox portable.

Internet Explorer 8 link :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx

Note: you can chance the default language to your language in the upper right corner.

Firefox portable link:
http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

If this not work, please chek your firewall that is not blocating your Internet explorer 8 and your antivirus has not quarantine some files of your internet explorer 8

You can also try to chek your Internet Explorer 8 in default settings without any software apply: got to Start- All programs- accessories- sistem......- Internet Explorer (without accessories).
If this browser works, that means that it is something wrong with your extra programs you have installed on Internet explorer 8

Hope that helps
Have a nice day
