I'd recommend downloading Firefox or Chrome instead, Internet Explorer is used by the majority of the internet so any flaws are known about for viruses and spyware

No. IE8 is very old. Use the newer version IE9.
Also AVG is really useless. Download MSE.

Update your Adobe flash player software to the latest version:

If that doesn't fix it you might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs..

I am connected to wifi on the netbook but when I click on internet explorer nothing happens. when I click on my computer or recycle bin the screen flashes but will not open them.

You are infected with a virus. Download Malwarebytes anti malware from this link. (CLICK HERE) You will have to do this from another computer and save it to a flash drive or disk then transfer it to your computer. Install the program, update it, and run a full scan. If you have problems installing it you may have to enter your computer in safe mode. (press F8 as the computer first begins to boot up and select safe mode) You may need to re-install internet explorer after virus removal. (CLICK HERE) for IE8 download.

I cant get firefox towork

Does IE8 work?? If so then uninstalll Mozilla / re-install.

If IE8 doesnt work either then Windows registry is corrupt.

Try going into safe mode and select "last best known config"

If that doesnt work Windows is too corrupt / requires Windows reload.

It started when I downloaded Internet Explorer 8. Then the HP Directer window messed up. Then it started putting me into safe mode.

Suggest you uninstall IE8 --- Control Panel, Uninstall a Program, View Installed Updates (on left side of screen), look for IE8 in the list and uninstall the update. It sits below Silverlight on the list. (My system doesn't much care for IE8 either.) The previous version of IE will be restored automatically.

I keep getting this message and can't open IE8. "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I got this same problem with IE 6 and 7. I love...

This happens because some important files requires for IE might got corrupted or deleted due to improper shutdown or virus problem. Just reboot your PC into sfae mode and try opening your IE. If problem persists in safe mode too, then download IE8 from here and install it.
I hope this is helpful to you
