I have lost the use of internet explorer - I get a run time error. I have tried to download from their website but my system says there is a newer version already loaded so it won't load the one I down loaded. How can I get it back? Currently I am using Mozilla Firefox.

Is windows internet explorer 8 the same as microsoft internet explorer 8


Restoring Computer to earlier state is the best solution. Only update the Internet explorer by using online updates that is downloaded from Microsoft website. WebRepOverall ratingThis site has no rating(not enough votes)

Also try to update the drivers that control your PC.

If problem still occurs then use system utility tool PCFresher that will fix windows internal errors and will fix corrupt registry errors.

Registry errors


You may have encountered the following message while browsing certain websites:

"Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://<website>.com. Operation aborted."


This really has nothing to do with your browser or your computer. You get this error because of faulty web coding from the webmaster's end.

IE displays this error when it is unable to open a particular element on a web page.


There are many things you can do to troubleshoot this kind of problem.


Upgrade Internet Explorer.

This problem does not occur in Internet Explorer 8. Navigate to Microsoft download Center and click on the "Download" button to upgrade to IE8 or IE9 (see Below).


http://download.cnet.com/windows-internet-explorer-8/3000-2356_4-10910662.html

IE 8


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx

IE 9


Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options." Hit the "Advanced" tab.

Click to remove the check mark next to "Show friendly HTTP error messages" under "Browsing" sub-headings.


Click on "Apply" and hit "OK." Please note this works mostly for Internet Explorer 6, although there is no harm in trying this on older or newer versions.


Add the specific website that is producing "Operation aborted" error under "Restricted Sites."


Click on the "Security" tab under "Internet Options."

Single-click to highlight "Restricted Sites."


Hit on the "Sites" button and click on "Add."

Type the URL of the website and hit "OK."


This works for Internet Explorer 7, but again, you can try this in earlier versions.


Disable or require prompt for "Active Scripting" when you view the specific website.

Click on the "Security" tab.


Click to highlight 'Restricted Sites" zone.

Navigate down to the sub-heading "Scripting."


Click to select "Disabled" under "Active Scripting."

You may also choose "Prompt" if you want IE to issue a prompt when opening the specific web page or website.


If you are still worried about the registry or need to fix any problems with it

You can run a free registry scan using utilities from http://re7.info

Hope this helps.

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

When I select to a meeting link it doesn't connect and I receive an error 'Internet explorer has stopped working.


Have you tried with a different web browser? Download Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome and see whether it is the website that has a problem or just Internet Explorer.

Alternatively:
  • Click on Start menu
  • Click on All Programs
  • Click on Accessories
  • Click on System Tools
  • Click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons)
This will rule out an add-on being responsible for your browser crash. You may find that by either installing a newer version or rolling back to a previous version of Internet Explorer will work as well.

Every time i go onto the zoosk web site it keeps telling me to upgrade my browser which i dont understand & cant seem to get rid of


Most modern web sites require a newer version of a "web browser" in order to ensure that all of the features of the web site work correctly. You are probably using an old version of "Internet Explorer" which is the web browser built in to Windows.
If you are using Microsoft Windows XP or newer, you should visit: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-8 and download an install Internet Explorer 8.
If you have an older version of Windows, the alternate "Firefox" browser can get downloaded from http://getfirefox.com. When you install that, click on the "Firefox" icon to access web sites like Zoosk that need a newer browser.
If you are running very old Windows system like Windows 98, you may not be able to get rid of the message and should consider getting a newer computer.

Yahoo mail not working


Hi, it seems that the DNS is not taking you to the desired website. You can run a command "ipconfig /flushdns" from command prompt without quotes. (Start Menu -> Run ->cmd). Once done try to check the website once again (http://mail.yahoo.com/). If you are not able to open the website again, I would recommend you to reset your internet browser. Hoping that you are using Internet Explorer as your internet browser, open Internet Explorer, then click on Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced Tab ->RESET. Follow the steps to reset your Internet Explorer. You can alternatively do it from Control Panel -> Internet Options ->Advanced Tab ->Reset. Once done successfully, you will be able to open your websites smoothly.
Cheers!

Not saving to desktop as ''problem occured Close and try


Let's try to isolate the problem first

1) Try downloading something different from a different website. If you succeed, then there is a problem with the original file or the connection to the original website. If you get the same error message, go to the next step.

2) Check the disk for errors. Run chkdsk c: /r. It will tell you that it cannot lock the disk blah blah blah. Anwser "yes" and restart. It will take quite a while to check the disk, but it will fix all fixable errors. Then, try again. If it doesn't work, go to the next step

3) Do you have a "download accelerator" installed and running (e.g. GetIt, Donaload Accelerator Plus, etc??) Some websites do not work well with download accelerators. Don't ask me why. They just don't. Either disable it or uninstall it and try again.

4) Try a different browser. If you're using Internet Explorer, try using FireFox or Opera

Please, report back to see if any of these helped.

Server not certified" message appears


hi,
This problem occurs if you are using "Microsoft Internet Explorer" browser 6.0 or lower. Try upgrading your browser to Internet explorer 8.0. It is a newer version which has a lot of advantages comparing to previous versions. But you can use it only in Windows XP or higher versions of operating systems.I have provided the link which leads to the website for downloading the browser for free.You can also take a look at the Mozilla Firefox browser.

to download Internet explorer 8.0

Once you upgrade your browser you will not get the problem of the security certificate.
