Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

1 Answer

My Explorer 8 since the last update, randomly

My Explorer 8 (I have Windows XP) since the last update, randomly signs on to websites on the perfered list, whether I'm online or not. It only partly signs on and keeps the sites in the background. But I'll check on my "processes" page and there will be a dozen or more "iexplorer.exe" files open and running. How do I stop this? Some sites have audio, the computer will suddenly just start talking.

get all from the same site ok.

ok now when using Ccleaner there will be 2 main tabs when first opened
(windows) & (applications)

under (windows) you will see 1. (net explorer) mark all boxes, 2. (windows explorer)mark last 3, 4. on (system) mark first 9, 5. (advanced) mark first 6

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.

Are you getting error message that reads " Either you dont have latest Java version or flash to run the videos.

As the problem with the IE 7.0 and IE 8.0 is related to cookies comes from the videos websites.

I would recommend you to rollback the IE to IE 6.0.

For further guidance on rollback, please visit this link:

URGENT - Windows XP Home edition -ActiveX Control problem -URGENT


The Lookout Web Client is implemented as an ActiveX Control. ActiveX Controls can execute any code on a local computer from a webpage (they can even delete files), so you should always be familiar with the origin of the control that is being loaded. There are two types of ActiveX Controls: unsigned and signed. Signed controls keep information about their origin (see the last picture below), while unsigned controls do not. Because the signing technology guarantees that the signature cannot be falsified (e.g., by a hacker), signed controls are usually considered safe.
Lookout 6.0 and higher uses a signed web client ActiveX control and is considered safe by Internet Explorer under the default settings. If the security settings have been changed (either by the user or system administrator), follow the procedure below.
Lookout 5.1 and earlier uses an unsigned web client ActiveX control. By default, Internet Explorer prohibits downloading and running unsigned ActiveX controls on your computer for security purposes. If you are familiar with the download, then you can relax the security settings.
  1. In Internet Explorer, Go to View (or Tools) » Internet Options » Security » Trusted Sites
  2. Click the Sites button.
  3. Enter the URL of the Lookout Web Client.
  4. Deselect Require server verification (https:),
  5. Click OK to return to the Internet Options.
  6. Make sure that the Trusted Sites security level is set to "Low".
    • If you do not see the slide bar for the level, click the Default Level button.

Or Try This


To resolve this issue, unregister the Comcat.dll file by using the Regsvr32.exe utility with the /u switch as in the following example: regsvr32 /u C:\winnt\system32\comcat.dll and rename the Comcat.dll file in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.

After you unregister the Comcat.dll file, reinstall Internet Explorer.

For information about how to rename a file, click Start, click Help, click the Index tab, type renaming, and then double-click the "Renaming files" topic.

If you remove Internet Explorer before you reinstall it, be sure to rename the Comcat.dll file after removing Internet Explorer.
