I would go into control panel, system, device drivers and uninstall your modem. Reboot the computer and let windows re-install it.

Hi there,
If you are getting trouble after the updates of internet explorer..

Then I would suggest you to Roll Back it to the original Internet Explorer (i.e Internet Explorer version 6.0)

Which come up with Installation of Win Xp with Service Pack 2.

Bad Effect due to IE 7.0 or higher version:

Screen hang up, internet freezes abruptly, prominent windows crashes anytime.

So to stop these problems, better to run with lower and safe version of IE:

To remove Internet Explorer 7 from your PC use the following methods

Method 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Step 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b In the Open box, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.

c. In the list of programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 7, and then click Remove.

d. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7. Also remove if any updates under this entry found.

If you cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 7 by using this method, try Method 2.

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b. In the Open box, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then click OK.

Why does my internet freeze? what can I do


If your computer as a whole is freezing, then you have to check for viruses / malware.
But, if it is only your internet that freezes up, then try resetting your Internet Explorer.
I am presuming that you are using Internet Explorer 7 or 8, as your browser.
To reset Internet Explorer (IE) :-
1. Open Internet Explorer .
2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons
check box, and then click OK.
5. Switch to the Security tab.
6. Click Reset all zones to default level, and then click OK.
7. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
8. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
9. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the default settings, click
Close, and then click OK .
10. Uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions option in the Settings box
11. Close Internet Explorer . The changes take effect the next time that
you open Internet Explorer .
Try to reset IE, as explained above.
Even after resetting IE, if IE still freezes, then there may be some viruses / malware on your computer.

When I try to go into some of the websites, it freezes up on me. I have problems getting into my email when I sign in. But not always. It also freezes up when I enter my sign in info to facebook and will...


this behavior signals a presence of a virus on the computer ..and you need to reinstall the computer to get rid of it ...The fact that is not freezing on any page is due the fact that the viruses are programmed to lock on and transmit data only from sites with interest ..(passwords...id info ..etc)

Getting my internet explorer to work?


Hi

Thank you for your query

The reason that you are getting this message is because internet explorer (IE) is looking at your LAN connection as the default connection.

to change this and to point it towards your dial up please do the following

1) click Start>Control Panel>Internet Options
2) In the internet options window click on the tab that says connections
3) half way down the page there will be a option that says 'always dial my default connection' put a dot in that box
4) Click apply/OK and next time you click on IE your dial up box will come up andask you to connect

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank you again

IE8 freezing/crashing


Hi there.
Don't bother with IE8 at the moment because there are too many bugs with it.
Either go back to IE7 or use mozilla firefox 3.

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Inspiron 6400 wirless connection


HI
If the browser shows working offline and wireless is connected fine then it could be an issue where work offline is checked in the browser.
In internet explorer 6 its found on File in the menu, if work offline is already checked, check it again to remove the check mark and then try, if its internet explorer 7 its found on tools, the same steps and in firefox under file,
Also try this step as well, if its internet explorer go to tools-internet options-and in internet options-go to connections tab-there is dial up and networking box-remove the dial up connections from the box-and check the one never dial a connection

also check the firewalls and antivirus programs, post your results.


thank you

E-mail with attachments freezing


Goto windows update, and make sure you have the latest version of Microsoft .net framework.. (also any other service packs for ie7 that you don't have, along with security updates)

Most of those sites use the .net platform, and that may cause issues if it is not up to date.

Other then that, you might try to re-install IE7, or, revert back to Ie6
