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.

Registry errors


You may have encountered the following message while browsing certain websites:

"Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://<website>.com. Operation aborted."


This really has nothing to do with your browser or your computer. You get this error because of faulty web coding from the webmaster's end.

IE displays this error when it is unable to open a particular element on a web page.


There are many things you can do to troubleshoot this kind of problem.


Upgrade Internet Explorer.

This problem does not occur in Internet Explorer 8. Navigate to Microsoft download Center and click on the "Download" button to upgrade to IE8 or IE9 (see Below).


http://download.cnet.com/windows-internet-explorer-8/3000-2356_4-10910662.html

IE 8


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx

IE 9


Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options." Hit the "Advanced" tab.

Click to remove the check mark next to "Show friendly HTTP error messages" under "Browsing" sub-headings.


Click on "Apply" and hit "OK." Please note this works mostly for Internet Explorer 6, although there is no harm in trying this on older or newer versions.


Add the specific website that is producing "Operation aborted" error under "Restricted Sites."


Click on the "Security" tab under "Internet Options."

Single-click to highlight "Restricted Sites."


Hit on the "Sites" button and click on "Add."

Type the URL of the website and hit "OK."


This works for Internet Explorer 7, but again, you can try this in earlier versions.


Disable or require prompt for "Active Scripting" when you view the specific website.

Click on the "Security" tab.


Click to highlight 'Restricted Sites" zone.

Navigate down to the sub-heading "Scripting."


Click to select "Disabled" under "Active Scripting."

You may also choose "Prompt" if you want IE to issue a prompt when opening the specific web page or website.


If you are still worried about the registry or need to fix any problems with it

You can run a free registry scan using utilities from http://re7.info

Hope this helps.

My internet explorer 9 is always shutting down without apparent reason, especially when trying to share a video from youtube onto facebook


I would suggest for the meantime to move back to IE 8 as there are lots of issues with IE 9 as of today July 15, 2011. I wrote down information how to put it back to IE8.
1.Go to the Add or Remove Programs section of the Control Panel. In Windows 7 you will find this just below the address bar when you open my computer. 2. On the Add or Remove Programs make sure to show updates 3. When the list has been populated, scroll down until you find the Internet Explorer section 4. Remove/uninstall Internet Explorer 9 leaving the Internet Explorer 8 on the list 5. After completing the removal, reboot your computer You should now have Internet Explorer 8 active on your system.

When I type in the IP address 192.168.2.1 and hit enter it just 'thinks' for around 2 mins then i get the IE cannot display page message up...Is there a reason why i cant get onto my routers page...


First off, make sure the management IP is indeed 192.168.2.1
to do that start > run > cmd > type "ipconfig" and press enter, the Default Gateway's IP address is the router's IP address.
second step, ping it. you should get a replay back
lastly, if you still cannot open the management page, the issue is probably with your browser, one common reason is a configured proxy server on the browser, remove it.
for Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet options > "connections" tab > press "LAN Settings" > uncheck all three checkboxes there.

I Hope this helps

Every time i go onto the zoosk web site it keeps telling me to upgrade my browser which i dont understand & cant seem to get rid of


Most modern web sites require a newer version of a "web browser" in order to ensure that all of the features of the web site work correctly. You are probably using an old version of "Internet Explorer" which is the web browser built in to Windows.
If you are using Microsoft Windows XP or newer, you should visit: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-8 and download an install Internet Explorer 8.
If you have an older version of Windows, the alternate "Firefox" browser can get downloaded from http://getfirefox.com. When you install that, click on the "Firefox" icon to access web sites like Zoosk that need a newer browser.
If you are running very old Windows system like Windows 98, you may not be able to get rid of the message and should consider getting a newer computer.

How do i get on facebook when it's blocked.


If facebook is blocked by your IT department, they have a pretty good reason for doing so.

You can use proxy website to be able to get through blocked sites but if your IT security is good, chances are these proxy sites are blocked as well.

I have tried accessing Facebook with a proxy website and they are pretty strict about this. Facebook will detect that you are trying to log in with an IP (the proxy website) that is not familiar to them. You will have to go to a series of security check before they will let you through.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate. All the best!

How to access blocked facebook site?


You can use Hotspot Shield to access blocked Facebook. It hides your original IP address by assigning a virtual IP address to you and you can bypass all web filters. Also It is free and easy to use.

Facebook supports IE 7, and firefox so it is not internet explorer 7

Open internet options and delete all your browser history and temp files,delete everything, this is on the main page under browsing history.
