Explorer- IE Cannot load Webpages

Outlook Express is receiving emails - so the ISP is OK
when I try to load a webpage from either IE 7 or MOZ-Firefox,
get the error message; Cannot load webpages-

Have Reset all default settings,
utilized 'msconfig' to disable add-ons.
All other proerties checked out, still have browser errors
Restored previous setting, no help
Ran NETWORK DIAGNOSIS TOOL thru IE7
error said may problem may be the Firewall,
because could not connect to www.microsoft.com-
thru HTML, or FTP, checked ports also, no problems.
checked msdevmgmt- Device Manager-
for Network Adapter problems;
No problems there.
Need suggestion please.

    The only FIREWALL I had was Windows Security Center;



    I turned it on- off

    made no difference with the browsers;

    (We were still receiving emails)



    NO WEBPAGES.

    More info;

    Am running Virus scans,

    if no solution is available,

    I am ready to restore the entire O/S.

    (if needed).

  • technet Apr 17, 2008

    It is a WMI

    error message,

    says; either upgrade the O/S or restore, is what I found.


  • technet Apr 21, 2008

    It was a TROJAN-

    it sunk the browsers, until I restored the O/S

    or upgraded, wow.

    Thanks

    Thanks for a detailed question (I see so few on this site), but I still need to know - What was the result of investigating the Firewall?



    I suspect that IE is not Authorised to access the internet.

What are you using for connection? WIreless, Lan? Go to start, run, and type in cmd push enter. then type ipconfig, press enter. This should bring all of your network connections. If you are going through a router(Wether it be Belkin, linkysys, or some other brand), the default gateway is where your connection is going through. try to ping your default gateway first. You should get four responses. If you don't there is a connection issue. I have a few other suggestions, but try these first. I hope they help.

Outlook emails only work with IE on the 'web server' - you could install and use a mail fetching program (which is what Outlook actually is), or you can use IE to fetch the mail.

I would suggest using Windows Live Mail, as this is what Microsoft intended when they retired Outlook Express.

You can download from: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mail?os=other

It is a more feature rich email program than Outlook Express and should provide all needed functionality.

Yahoo mail won't stay open. It sends a msg to Microsoft then shuts down agter a few minutes.


There is an issue maybe from your antivirus software or memory issue. Try safe mode and see whether the issue persists. If safemode worked then you can turn on software one by one and see which is the cause of the issue.

1st: can't open gmail w ie; 2nd ie keeps shutting down


Hi, It seems that you might have installed some addons for IE and now you are in the situation. All you need to do it open Internet Options from Control Panel. Then in Advanced tab, click on Reset. Resetting Internet Explorer resets all settings to manufactures' default and in the process you will lose all saved passwords on Internet Explorer and you will have to re-enter them again upon use. Once done, fire-up IE and click on Tools menu > Internet Options and reset IE from Advanced tab once again from here as well. It means you will reset IE two times, first from Control Panel and then from IE window itself. Once done try to use IE and see the result.
However there are few addons available with Mozilla Firefox that resembles IE inside and opens all webpages that requires IE only. Download Coral IE Tab from: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10909
Installed the addons and switch the view to IE to open all webpages that supports IE only.
Cheers!

Hello, April.

I'm figuring that sound is not enabled in the Internet Explorer browser.

Check by selecting: Tools - Internet Options - Advanced tab - (Scroll down) - Multimedia - to see if "Play Sounds in Webpages" has a check mark. If not, add a check mark, select "OK", close Internet Explorer and try again.

Hope this helps.

what email service are you using, is it hotmail, yahoo's pop3, gmail, your isp's

I suspect is a setting in the advance settings in windows mail, possibly in the advance tab. I would suggest for you to enable logging in the maintenance section under the advance tab in settings that way if there's a problem this can be logged into a text file that will help with the troubleshooting process.

I have something similar happening to a client, he was using his ISP (internet service provider's account), we concluded that the issue could be the actual isp as when the computer was moved to another location (different isp) in my shop, we attempted to recreate the problem, and the problem was gone.

also check with isp, there may be something in the configuration that may have been missed.

I am on a lap top so how do i get through on a lap top


any time you are on anypage and it has a link to email them OR somebody, internet explorer (IE), will open your default mail program and ask you to fill out the email message BUT, you have not setup THAT email program (in XP it is most likely Outlook express, in Vista it is Windowsmail). SO if it is not set up right with all the info that your (ISP, (insternet service provider), like incoming mail server and the outgoing mail server, and the user name and pasword), the program will have no idea how to send that new email message that you triggered when clicking on the craigs list link). to find out which program is by default is trying to open up, while you are in IE, ( if that is in windows XP), click tools/internet options/prgrams and you will see it in front of email program., if you have VISTA, then click --> tools/internet options/prgrams/set programs/set default programs/then click on Windows mail and set it up as your Default prgram for email sending and receiving. ) but you need to make sure you get all the info from you ISP first, it a matter of fact they might be able to help set it up for you (depends on your ISP of course).
good luck

Webpage Browser Connection


Hi. Try Tools, Internet Options, Reset. Also might be worth having a quick look in c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc at the Hosts file. Open it with Notepad and make sure you havent got a load of webpages in there being blocked.
Try those.
