Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

Constantly encountering an error and needs to close

Ever since I downloaded IE 8, on various web sites, I get the message that it encountered an error and needs to close. Am trying to book flight on Delta and it happens as soon as the web site opens. It has happend on You Tube videos, the washington monthly news site, and lots of other sites. What is going on? Whenever I try to open any web-page Internet Explorer tells me that "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close' we are sorry for the inconvenience"

I think, its some Add-on which is creating this problem in IE.

Please check the Add-ons in the Tools "Manage Add-Ons" Menu and try Enable / Disable for the Add-on which you think is not required for your IE.

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).

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.

Internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience


Do you get the message for _all_ web-sites, or just a specific web-site? What URL?
Does the message happen on _any_ computer that accesses that web-site?
What Operating System are you using?
Which version (6? 7? 8? 9beta?) of Internet Explorer are you using?

Is there a known problem with the HP J4680 and IE8?


The problem is usually with the web site being printed. Various website designers use different methods to create their pages. Some use tables and frames which present a problem for the print software.

1) Wherever possible, look for a "Printer Friendly" version of the web page

2) Failing this, from the IE print icon drop-down box (down arrow) choose "Print Preview" > Click Page Setup icon (gear icon) > Select page settings of your choice. Try printing by clicking the printer icon.

3) When encountering a webpage created with frames: Click IE print icon drop-down box (down arrow) choose "Print Preview" > Click Page Setup icon (gear icon) > Select "As laid out on screen" or "All frames individually" or "Only selected frame". Try printing by clicking the printer icon.

I hope this information was helpful.
