Can't get to the internet

When I click on the icon from my desktop internet explorer I can't connect with the internet. It keeps telling me that the web page cannot be found. They told me to that they woukld send me the cd to download to connect with the internet. I've had this problem since I signed up with the dsl high speed. I've never had this problem with dial up they sdent me the cd to download and I connected to the internet without a problem. I've been calling text support and still the problem is not fixed. Everytime I have to connect to the internet I have to put in numbers to connect with the internet.

Go to start menu , open up your control panel, then select internet options. It should bring up a window that says GENERAL at the top left. Inside the window type the website you would like as your homepage.eg. www.yahoo.com. That means when you log on to internet it will open to that page. Then at top select tab that says CONNECTIONS. In the window below you should see your previous dial up service provider listed. Highlight each if more than one then to the left select REMOVE, it will ask if you want to remove select yes. Continue with this process until window is completely empty. Then go below on same page select tab that says LAN settings. Click on this tab then you should see two options at top. Check the one that says AUTOMATICALLY detect settings, Then hit ok at bottom. Close out the window. then attempt the log on by just clicking on Internet Explorer. It should bring up your homepage.

Internet Explorer 7 is a popular Internet browser offered by Microsoft. As all Internet browsers so, Internet Explorer 7 keeps a record of your search history. So if want to retrace something you searched earlier or you want to check the history of someone else who has accessed your computer, you can view Internet Explorer 7 search history.

Instructions:

1.Launch Internet Explorer 7 by clicking on the icon of it that is located on your computer's desktop or by finding it by clicking on "Start" and then the "All Programs" list.

2.Click on the "Star" icon that is located in the upper left-hand corner of your Internet Explorer 7 browser window.

3.Click on "History" from the drop-down menu that appears in the left navigation pane that pops up on your IE 7 window. Your search history is displayed. Click on an item within the list to visit the website.

Why my dekstop and internet keeps refresh..?? can you tell me how to solve this? if i use internet it will keep refresh plss help me..


Look for any messages in the status bar of Internet Explorer and either search Google for the contents of the message or post them here.

When does this refresh problem happen? Does it happen constantly or when you perform specific actions?

Do you mean the page refreshes (like when you press the reload button on Internet Explorer) or does something also happen to your desktop as you mentioned?

Any other details you can add will be helpful.

    Hi fitfit759, assuming you have Windows XP. What you can do is go to My Computer - Local Disk (C:) - Program Files = Internet Explorer and with "right click" drag the iexplorer.exe icon to your desktop and then when you release the mouse it's going to ask you whether copy, move or create a shorcut. Click on create a shortcut and that's it.
    It's a little strange because if you installed internet explorer with NO errors, you shouldnt have that problem. Please dont forget to rate and give positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

    Google Chrome removal


    right click on any internet shortcut icon -> select properties and to the right of where it says Opens with: click "Change"

    Now you'll be given a list of recommended applications

    If you were using firefox it will probably be right there just click it then click "ok"
    if the application you used before isn't there click "Browse"

    If you want to use Internet Explorer just go to: My Computer -> C:\
    -> Program Files then find the folder called Internet explorer, inside you'll find iexplore click it then click open

    let me know if that worked ok for you
