When I let the standard windows vista updates go through my Toshiba shows I am connected but IE 8 says I have an internet connection problem. Diagnosis says no problem so I revert back. I have been fighting this for over 2 years. How can I fix it?

My first suggestion is to upgrade to IE9. My second suggestion is to upgrade to Windows 7. Both Vista and IE8 are incomplete and do not seem to work well all the time.

I reinstalled windows xp and i go on to the internet explorer and it says the page cannot be displayed What can i do to fix it and i do not have internet


If NO Internet = NO Internet Service
You are perfect and I.E.8 is functioning properly.
Internet Browser ( I.E. 8.0 ) requires an active internet account and access to the internet. " Page Cannot Be Displayed " = no connection to the URL address in the address bar.

If you have active Internet Service =
Sounds like you have no connection to your router / modem
Confirm the following connections : LAN = network cable, or Telephone line, or Wireless network connection and password ?

Once connected to your Internet Service Provider
IF you're system is ( only ) " Auto-Updating " ?
Try this.. manually check for updates. When window opens, check for all types of updates ( default selection is " important ", "Recommended " etc )
Select the other ( optional ) choice. When the next window appears ...
on the left side default (1st choice ), Software (2nd choice ) Drivers / other (3rd choice) 2nd " Software " = contains "optional" network update drivers and software = after downloading and installing updates ... machine re-start will be required for completion ...
REPEAT PROCESS EACH OF THE THREE TYPES OF UPDATES
Windows would continually find additional auto updates after each optional installation ... additional optional updates will become available, as a result of auto updating adding more updates ...
( " Lather, Rinse Repeat " ) Repeat processes, until all updates ( auto, optional, drivers ) show "0" available.
The system will now be updated.
please excuse, if the exact word of the choice is not exact, XP has been replaced 3x over.
If you find this was helpful, please remark positively

Remove the update the caused the problem in add remove programs, then update manually, or turn off auto update. You can also install and use firefox instead of IE or try doing a repair to IE. Usually IE updates to version 8 and it has problems - version 7 works fine. Uninstalling 8 changes it back to 7. Version 8 will not download properly on a lot of sites - they changed it so U have to use Windows explorer instead to download from FTP sites, and it will not connect to some sites due to all of the security they installed. You could try using default settings on security and turn off filters to see if that works. When windows updates IE it automatically changes to high security.

Vista: No internet after update


Perhaps your gateway has changed? Look in your network connections, or perhaps a proxy has been entered into the browser?

Vista keeps using the internet connection


The greedy folks at Microsoft use their WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) to monitor your microsoft products, cant be helped, they claim to only check microsoft products though this should only take a second or two for verification. Check your firewall settings and if neccessary use multiple firewalls to stop the intrusions.

Windows Cannot Check for Updates


Hi scott !! 
To me it seems that your computer is infected. Open task manager and look for any suspicious process and update your antivirus and scan your computer if it's not allowing you to update your antivirus as well then you need to recover your operating system to get rid of this.
Thanks

Try clicking Start then all programs (in XP) and select Windows update near the top of the first list that pops up (above the applications) and while updating you'll come to a point (after checking your configuration) that will allow you to add "Software Updates", then click on that and the latest IE7 should be there.
I hope I understood your question, and helped?
Good luck.
