Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Windows XP Home -

Hi,
After starting my pc I click on Internet Explorer and nothing happens. After several attempts it starts and works normally. When I try to shut down the pc I get a message ""End program iexplore.exe" This program is not responding. After waiting for it to try, the "End Now" button pops up, I click on it and we go through the cycle again. Eventually, after what seems like as many cycles as it took to start IE, the machine shuts itself down. This is a real pain. I have Registry Mechanic installed and it comes up with one persistent problem that it cannot repair - HKEY-CLASSES-ROOTCLSID...lot of numbers...Inprocserver32.

Another hassle is that in "Set program access and defaults" "Custom" is always checked in the radio button even after I have previously set it to "Microsoft"

Are these problems related and can anyone advise? Thanks.

    Thank you for your advice, but I wanted to sort out my Internet Explorer problem and not install something else. It should work, but it doesn't, and I would like to fix it. Thanks anyway.

    Hi 24seven,

    Your suggestion didn't address my problem with Internet Explorer, so I wouldn't be able to rate it higher than Thanks for Trying. Would that be helpful to you?

You can junk the IE for an extremely popular browser called Mozilla Firefox. Next time IE is up and running download firefox at :
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ look for the DOWNLOAD button.
you will be asking yourself "why haven't I done this long ago?"

Hi smb343646205,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the Operating System you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

Anyways, try to reset the Internet Explorer Settings to resolve the problem.

To use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature from Control Panel, follow these steps:
  1. Exit all programs, including Internet Explorer (if it is running).
  2. If you use Windows XP, click Start, and then click Run. Type the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER: inetcpl.cpl If you use Windows Vista, click Start. Type the following command in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER: inetcpl.cpl The Internet Options dialog box appears. Click the Advanced tab. Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again. When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box. Start Internet Explorer again. The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature restores the following items to their default settings:
    1. Home pages
    2. Search scopes
    3. Browsing history
    4. Form data
    5. Passwords
    6. Appearance settings
    7. Toolbars
    8. ActiveX controls


    Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

Tip

For All XP user Don't Use IE 7.0 & higher version



Applicable for all window XP (all edition, all PCs and Laptops)

Hi there,
If you are getting trouble after the updates of internet explorer..

Then I would suggest you to Roll Back it to the original Internet Explorer (i.e Internet Explorer version 6.0)

Which come up with Installation of Win Xp with Service Pack 2.

Bad Effect due to IE 7.0 or higher version:

Screen hang up, internet freezes abruptly, prominent windows crashes anytime.

So to stop these problems, better to run with lower and safe version of IE:

To remove Internet Explorer 7 from your PC use the following methods

Method 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Step 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b In the Open box, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.

c. In the list of programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 7, and then click Remove.

d. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7. Also remove if any updates under this entry found.

If you cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 7 by using this method, try Method 2.

Method 2: Use Spuninst.exe to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Run Spuninst.exe to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b. In the Open box, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then click OK.

c. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.

After you uninstall Internet Explorer 7, double-click the Internet Explorer icon to verify that Internet Explorer 6 is restored.

This will bring up you to run Internet explorer as it come up with the installation kit, which is safe and reliable.

Have Nice Surfing!!

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.

Ie problem


I know exactly what you are talking about, my sons laptop was doing this last summer and mine began doing it a couple of months ago (I have since reinstalled XP). O was never able to get rid of the problem but I was able to work around it by running task manager and going to Processes find explorer.exe and end task, then go back to Applications click New Tasks and type explorer.exe.
The problem seems to be within the use screen because I had my own user account on my sons pc and my desktop did bot do that.
Hope this helped you.

hi thanks for using fixya!!

You pc has an error internally, and the system is not reading specified settings on your pc. I suggest, you format your pc, that's the best option I can see. Just be sure you have your OS and drivers when you format your system.

If you need further assistance, let me know.

Pls rate me positively! thanks!

Clicking outlook express hyperlinks gives not responding message


First download and reinstall Internet Explorer, that has Outlook Express built in. See Internet Explorer: Get It Now.

If that does not work, do system restore to a date before you started having the problem. See System Restore on Windows XP.
