I cant open more than one window in mt internet explorer browser. Whenever I attempt to open a second window or connect to a second site while on my first, the whole system stops and restarts. The internet explorer posts a pop up that reads "internet explorer has stopped working" then a new pop up opens and reads 'internet explorer is restarting". What can I do?

    The problem is still there. I still can not open any more than one internet explorer window. Any attempt to open additional ones closes the first window and restarts explorer.

  • bwalanda Jun 02, 2008

    Is IE internet explorer? If so yes I do have internet explorer.

  • bwalanda Jun 03, 2008

    Thank you for your website link and the advise. It however has not work unfortunately. I can not even respond to the pop up that appears from google offering an alternative way for me to store my book marks. As that pop up is starting, IE stops working.

    On my Acer laptop when clicking on my Netflex icon the site does not come up. The icon itself flickers back and forth between the internet explor icon and the netflicks icon. This problem just started. I have not had issue before

Cant open internet options


How to Open Internet Options
Each browser has a way to customize it, and you do it using Internet Options. With Internet Options, you can specify your privacy settings, security and your home page with a few clicks of your mouse. Knowing how to open Internet options is essential to preventing hackers from accessing your computer or keeping people from viewing your Internet history. Opening the window in Firefox, Internet Explorer, or with your computer's control panel is not a difficult task.
Instructions
Firefox
1 Launch the Firefox browser.
2 Go to the toolbar at the top of the browser and select "Tools."
3 Move the mouse pointer down the tool menu until you get to "Options." Click on that word. Your Firefox Internet Options will immediately open.

Internet Explorer
1 Launch the Internet Explorer browser.
2 Click on the "Tools" menu located on the tool bar, at the top of the browser.
3 Move the mouse cursor down that menu until you get to "Internet Options." Left click on those words. Your Internet Options window will immediately open.

Computer Control Panel
1 Go to the Start Menu.
2 Click on the "Control Panel."
3 Click "Network Internet Options." Then, Click "Internet Options." You will be able to change Internet Explorer options, but not those of other browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome

Cant open mirosoft website


When you open your browser and it cannot load the web page that means there is no internet connection... if there is... then the connection is not stable..

Try this, could help you stabilize your connection...On the top of your web browser, on the File menu , uncheck the "Work Offline"...........If you are using a wireless internet connection.. disable the firewall setting of your windows so that windows will allow the connection of internet and will not be strict...If you are using a broadband router make sure it is receiving high signal... and make sure to keep away the unit 1 meter from any live wiring or wall outlet..

I hope that solve your connection issues..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

My browser will not connect to the internet


Do you have any other internet enabled applications that are connecting properly? If you do have other internet enabled apps and they too are having problems than I would suggest trouble shooting your network connections.

If you are running Windows XP go "Control Panel" and under "PIck a Category" select "Network and Internet Connections". Next select "Network Connections". Right click your network connection and select "Repair". Windows will attempt to repair your network drivers, settings, and reestablish your network connection. If unsuccessful it will attempt provide an error message describing the problem.

If you don't see that option start checking connections along your network cable wiring. A plug may have come out or a cable damaged.

If it is not your network connection or your wiring it is your browser software. Reset your browser back to default settings to repair any changes made by accident by yourself or perhaps a website attempting a browser hijack:

Reset Internet Explorer to the default settings To reset Internet Explorer to the default settings
  1. Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
  2. Open Internet Explorer.
  3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
  5. Select the Delete personal settings check box if you would like to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, and InPrivate Filtering data.
  6. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
  7. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click Close, and then click OK.
  8. Close Internet Explorer. Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.
Hope this helped.

Intranet but not Internet


going to assume you are using IE as your browser. Ok open the browser and i want you to click on Tools on the top of the browser. a drop down menu comes down and now select Internet Options. Now a Internet Option box opens with lots of tabs on top. OK select the one that says Connections. OK at the bottom it has a button that says LAN Settings. OK uncheck everything and make everything clear. Hit OK. This should take you back to the Connections tab and now I want you to hit Setup and go through the wizard.

restart your machine and as soon as you turn on the machine, keep on tapping f8 and do not wait for any display fo this process, you will get advanced boot menu options on screen, select the option which says safe mode with networking, and check there is this is working fine there just open the internet options from internet explorer and then click on advanced and restore the internet explorer to default settings. and restart the machine in normal mode if it does not works in safe mode then system needs to be reformated

I HAVE THE ASUS EEE PC 900 AND I CANT CONNECT WITH THE WIRELESS ROUTER TO THE INTERNET. I WAS CONNECTED WITH NO PROBLEMS BUT NOW IT SAYS YOUR ATHEROS L2 ETHERNET 10/1 IS DISCONECTED, I WOULD APRECIATE ANY...


Two things to try...

First: In your system tray (lower right corner of windows) right click in your wireless network icon and select "repair". After it finishes, try your connection again. (If you can't find the icon in the system tray, go to control panel, network connections. Right click on the wireless network, and select "repair".)

Second: Try to connect to your router directly by typing it's IP address into the address bar of your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox).
*****If you don't know the IP address, you can find it by opening a command prompt window (click "start", "run", then type "cmd" and press "ok") In the command box, type "ipconfig /all" (all of these commands I have told you are without the quotes.) In the information that is returned, look for the Default Gateway. Usually it is something like 192.168.1.1 but yours may be different. This is the IP address of your router.*****
If you cannot connect to the router through your browser, then the router is the problem...Unplug it from the power for about thirty seconds, then plug it back in. Wait for a couple of minutes while it gets up and running again, then try your internet again. (Whenever I have repaired this problem in the past, I have also unplugged the cable modem which forces the modem to query for a new IP address for itself. If you do this, plug the cable modem (or DSL modem) in first, then plug in the power to the router.
If you CAN connect to the router with your browser, you should see the administrative options. Search through the tabs and options to find an option to release and renew it's IP address.
I hope that I didn't overwhelm you with too much information here, any questions, just post them here and I will help you.

Can't connect to certain websites


What's the Operating system of your laptop? What browser are you using?

If you're using Windows OS and Internet Explorer browser, you may try changing some settings on the Internet Options.

Open your Internet Explorer browser, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options. On the General tab, click on Delete Cookies, Delete Files and Clear History.

Then go to Connections tab. Make sure Never dial a connection is selected. Click on LAN Settings button. Uncheck all boxes. Click Apply and OK.

Make sure also that there's no Firewall enabled on your computer such as the Windows Firewall, Norton, McAfee, etc.

You may also try using a different browser like Mozilla Firefox or Opera.
