Vista not running IE8 or Windows mail, freezing up

We have an HP computer running Windows Vista. We installed IE8 and have been having no problems, About a month ago when the computer comes out of sleep mode it will not run IE8, Windows mail, or connect to our DSL. Sometimes also locks up during use. I've tried all the fixes I can find. Only solutions is to restart the computer and it works again? Any ideas?

You may have tried the recovery program for your computer, if not then give it a try. Sometimes it is necessary to do this from your recovery discs rather than from the partician of your hard drive. Another thought which Im sure you have checked is for viruses. I always use a least two different virus scans. For instance if you have Norton running on your computer you might also run the free Trend Micro virus scan online. Not all virus scans are equal. Vista has been known to have problems so you might want to check with HP. They can do online chat with you while you try what fixes they suggest. I understand your frustration and hope that I have helped in some way. Good Luck.

Asus computer freezing up


Windows vista is a large operational system that caused the very complaints that people were talking about and that is why window 7 came in because it is lighter and faster and takes less resources. But to address your problem sub out the ram memory one at a time to see if there is a difference, quite often reseating the ram will sometimes fix the problem.

I m trying to install internet explorer 8 but .it show no entry found.how can i solve the problem


You've tried to install IE version 8 on a windows system (would like to know WinXP/Vista/Win7 ?) that has one or more registry problems. FIX: run a registry sanity checker/fixer appropriate for your version of Windows and retry the IE8 install - the install will
remove (clean out) any invalid/useless IE8 junk already on the system - such as your invalid IE8 registry entries.

www.pctools.com offers a Windows registry checker, but Microsoft offers SCANREG.EXE free - see:

www.support.microsoft.com/kb/183887

for appropriate command-line switches.

I have windows mail and would like outlook express. Is there somewhere I can download it for free or do I have to buy a program?


If you have Windows Mail, you no doubt are running Windows Vista. Sorry, but Outlook Express is not supported in Vista. You are stuck with Windows Mail or a third-party mail client. FYI, I use Thunderbird and am quite satisfied. It works with Windows XP through Windows 7

Hello,

The problem is that the memory on your computer is very low that is why your computer freezes, you will need to increase the memory on your computer.

The IE8 file might be might be large and might have consumed so much space on your computer, that leads to the computer freezing up.

You will need to increase the memory card on your computer or better still, you uninstll the IE8 pending the period you increase the memory card on your computer.

You can install the IE8 back after an upgrade in the memory card and all we be fine.

Take care.

Cannot download Internet Explorer from any site I tried


Access: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads

Under the "Popular Downloads", find:

Windows Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP

If you're running Microsoft Vista, instead click "more"
to find IE8 for Windows Vista.

If you're running Microsoft 7, IE8 is pre-installed.

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 :)
