    Not a solution so I posted this advice in a Clarification. Suggest you download Mozilla Firefox instead. Do you see a speaker icon in your taskbar? (Bar at the bottom of your desktop screen. Not trying to sound condescending) If so Right-click on it.

This is a known issue with IE8 happens a lot. I use another browser a lot of folks do. Try this and see if this resolves the issue for you. Go and download FireFox browser Click Here

Now go and see if you can log into Yahoo, if you cannot log in from there most likely they are down. I'm assuming that you can go to other sites other than Yahoo on IE8 then that kind of tells you where the problem lies not with your Internet Provider.

I just went there and I was able to get there. Thanks for using FixYa! I have not used IE in years cannot stand it to many issues and problems occur on a very regular basis to each their own though. It does seem when you first download the upgrade it will work for a bit it just seems to go haywire after that. John

I cant access facebook site in my internet explorer that i have upgraded to IE -8 till i cant access facebook.Reason showing is no pinging to the ip


1) Turn off your anti-virus for a moment and see if problem persists.
And then check anti-virus parental controls and see if they are set to block access to certain websites.

2) Re-start computer, and start pressing F8 key as computer restarts.
This will take you to screen asking if you want to start in safe mode.
Select yes, and select safe mode with internet connection.
When computer starts, then open IE8 and see if Facebook opens.
This will tell you if a program is interfering with access.
Then restart computer again and let it restart normally, to return to ordinary operation. Takes 10 minutes.

3) Go to start > Run > type in msconfig > click enter key > system configuration utility opens. Go to startup tab, and uncheck all boxes (do not uncheck boxes under Services tab).
Restart computer and then try IE8 again.
On the restart, your anti-virus might not automatically open, so click on desktop icon to start antivirus.
If facebook opens, then you can go back to msconfig and one-by-one put checkmarks back into boxes and then re-start to identify suspect program.

4) Go to start > Run > type in prefetch > click enter key > box opens > delete contents of box. These are temp files.
Go to start again > run > type in %temp% > click enter key > delete contents of box. If contents will not delete, then re-start computer and try to delete again, if contents will still not delete, start computer in safe mode and then delete contents of %temp% folder while in safe mode. Restart normally.
Open IE8 > go to tools > internet options > general tab > delete browsing history, cookies and all content.
Then try facebook again.
Takes about 15-25 minutes.

5) You are using IE8 browser. You can use more than 1 browser. I have 2 on my computer. Download Firefox browser and see if problem runs across browsers. I use Firefox as primary browser. Or you can download Google Chrome
Try the other browsers to see if problem is unique to your IE8 browser. Takes about 10 minutes.

6) Do a system restore back to date and time when you knew IE worked correctly. Back up your files to be safe. Go to start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore. Follow prompts. Takes about 18 minutes.

7) Back up all documents, photos, favorites, contacts, and make a full list of all passwords. List all your programs, and important information. Save all information on 2 different external drives, and/or at Mozy on-line storage. Set up a g-mail account and write down the password and check it twice and e-mail list to yourself with passwords etc.
Then re-install operating system.
Open g-mail and retrieve your list.
Takes 1 full day, and you need operating disk and drivers.

Please upgrade first the version of your Windows Internet Explorer. The connection of Yahoo Messenger rely on Internet Explorer.

If you are using different web browser like Mozilla Firefox, It doesn't matter. Just install Internet Explorer 8 compatible with your operating system and do not default it as your browser.

Do this and you will find it easy to access your yahoo Messenger in just a second.

Here is the link for downloading Internet Explorer version 8. Select the operating system you are currently use.http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

I cannot download adobe flashplayer. Whenever I go to certain sites, I keep getting told that I need to disable Java or I have an older version of Adobe. I keep trying to download FP, but it keeps failing....


I had this problem before..you need to clean the registry files stored in your computers harddrive. The problem you are having now is that the flashplayer will not complete the download because the old flashplayer is priority even though you have upgraded your browser. I spent a few days when this happened to me. Try this free registry cleaner from CNET, click on the link and download it. After you download it, install it and run the program and it will clean all of your old files out of the harddrive. It will find and delete the old versions of Adobe. After you do that, resart the computer and redownload Adobe flash player.

Browsr Shutting Down


Actually, this is a common problem especially if you recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 (IE8). The typical problem is that many sites are not yet compatible to IE8 and they cause problems and you will probably see script warning errors occasionally too. IE8 has a little icon that looks like a broken page up to the right of the URL bar that is clicked on to improve compatibility with some sites and if you click that, it may help with some sites. Many people have decided to download Mozilla Firefox and use that as their main browser until Microsoft makes a better product. Firefox works with much less errors and issues. I suggest giving that a try.

I can't seem to access the Tiger Woods AE Sports golf site. I am trying to get online to play in a golf tournament. I cannot access the site. I am told that it is my ISP.. But my ISP is working fine.


Try a different web browser, or adjust security settings in existing browser. If IE8 is installed, uninstall it, reboot and try again. IE8 is not quite ready for the real world in many situations.
