The first thing to do when Internet Explorer is misbehaving is empty your Internet Explorer cache. Often the cache is not corrupt or damaged – it is simply too large.
1.
Click Tools, then Internet Options, and then click the Delete Files button.
2.
A Delete Files window will appear. Select the option to Delete all offline content, and then click OK.
3.
Click Settings and reduce the size of your cache to, say, 50 to 100 MB (more if you routinely download very large files).


What windows operating system are you using? The best way to defrag a hard drive is to turn off your screensaver, if you have one set to run, then reboot your computer in safe mode, by continuously tapping the F8 key at the bootup screen, and then selecting safe mode (#3) on the menu. Then go to Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Defragmentor. Be sure you have the settings to correct any problems that it may find. If you have to scan your hard drive for problems, then open My Computer/right-click the C: drive/select properties/click the tools tab/and under error checking, click the 'check now' button. Checking your hard drive for errors will take awhile to accomplish, so just let it run.

It seems to be a problem with internet explorer itself , the best way to remedy this is to download another copy of internet explorer you can download it from this site, just copy and paste it into the search bar at the top of your browser. hope this solves the problem.

Why does my youtube keep saying Bad Request when I get on????????


Sounds like you've done one of three things. 1. You've got a bad cookie somewhere and should maybe consider deleting all your cookies. 2. You've changed your internet settings in internet explorer and changed something about the way they handle hyperlinks. 3. You have a virus, spybot or malware problem. I've never clicked on a hyperlink that it says "Bad Request". I doubt that it's option #1 so try opening internet explorer, go to Tools go to Internet Options and go to the Advanced tab. Tell it to Restore Advanced Settings and if that doesn't work, return to same place and click on the Reset option.
