Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

2 Answers

Sometimes when I click on the Internet Explorer icon, and error message appears in front of a blank web page. The error message says "Internet Explorer has stopped working. Click to close program". When I do so, the error message disappears and the blank web page closes. Usually I have to do this about 6 times before Internet Explorer opens, but sometimes it can be as many as 30 attempts. Sometimes Internet Explorer opens OK without this problem, but many times it goes through this process. Internet Explorer 8 used to work fine on my PC, which is a Dell I bought only a few monts ago. Thanks Pete

Try a scan with your virus scan, then with a malware scanner, i use Malwarebytes.
I would then use CCleaner, use the registry cleaner also.
This will clean out all your temp files, and remove any registry errors that may be causing IE from starting properly.
You could also use Firefox, or chrome as your browser if this does not fix it

Can anybody help me figure out why I get the below message and how I can fix it? Thank-you Webpage error details User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR...


Internet Explorer 7 cannot display a particular element on a Web page on that Web site.

Workaround 2 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); You can turn off friendly HTTP error messages in Internet Explorer. This workaround still lets the error message appear. However, Internet Explorer does not move away from the page after the error occurs. This workaround works only for Internet Explorer 6.

To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to clear the Show friendly HTTP error messages check box under the Browsing section, and then click OK.
  3. Close the browser.

When you send/receive an instant message and no message appears, you probably have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.To enable scripting:

  1. Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."
  2. Click the "Security" tab.
  3. Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.
  4. Scroll down to "Scripting."
  5. Enable the following:
    • Active scripting
    • Allow paste operations via script
    • Scripting of Java applets are all enabled
  6. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
Note: Restart Yahoo! Messenger and you should start seeing text in your IM windows again.

Certificate error on web site.


This is basically an Internet Explorer 7 Website’s Security Certificate problem! You have to self-sign the certificate on the client computer or add the URL manually to the trusted security zone. When you are trying to access a secure web page, you receive the warning message:

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate. The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority."

Or

"Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept data you send to the server."

To fix this issue, you can follow either of the methods:

Method 1:

You have to install the Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 (Windows SBS) self-signed certificate on the client computer. To do this, follow these steps:

  • In Windows Internet Explorer 7, click Continue to this website (not recommended).
A red Address Bar and a certificate warning appear.
  • Click Certificate Error button to open the information window.
  • Click View Certificates > click Install Certificate.
  • Click Yes, to install the certificate, when warning message appear.

Note: For Windows Vista users, right click on Internet Explorer icon. Select Run as Administrator.
