I am having an issue with IE 7 i tried to down load IE8 and it seemed to down load correctly but it would not allow me to view web sites even tho i was online. I then did a system restor to befor the IE8 down load and got my IE7 back but it is not working correctly. The title bar does not show what page i am on.

And i tried to reinstall ie7 but it will not let me down load anything either. I am stuck and donw know what else to do.

First you have to determine whether you are actually online. Do this: START, RUN, CMD. At the C: prompt type ipconfig /all. You'll get alot of numbers and letters but the one we're most interested in is default gateway with numbers like etc. If this is very similiare then type PING at the c: prompt. If you get a message back that says reply ... then you have an internet connection. Now you'll need to get some things before we proceed. Go to a friends computer or the public library and download AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and Put these on a flash drive or cd and run them on your computer. This will positively eliminate and bugs or hijacking. Once completed go to START, RUN, CMD and type SFC /scannow at the c: prompt. This program will check and correct all of Window's protected files. Have your original Windows cd's handy because it may ask for them. Once all this is done you should be able to load IE 7 or IE 8. I would get clean copies of these before you attempt this. Again, a friends computer or the public library. Good luck

Hi, I got the message: Sorry, your browser/program is not supported by Web Dynpro! WinXP (all updates are installed) with IE 8.0.6001.18702, How can i make it work? Best regards,

Hello mkosmicki
IE8 is the problem , as most Web Dynpro applications are set to default to IE6.
Use the Compatibility View (the little broken page icon at the right of the address bar in the top of your IE window). This should load your program fine by using IE 7 parameters.
Best regards ,

I wish to download internet explorer 8 on windows

According to Microsoft Answers page:

Internet Explorer 8 is part of Windows 7 and can be re-activated using the steps indicated in that page. Try them to see if them can help you solve your problem

Microsoft had just released Internet Explorer 9, with some new features, like a minimalist look browser interface, download manager, add-on manager and allowing the use of video card GPUs to accelerate the image, video and audio processing when loading the web pages to make the loading process much faster. If you want to try it, you can download it from

Hope this info may help you!

My IE8 does no longer load parts of pages (flash/java)

I would lower my IE settings as far down as possible. I would also go to Internet Options/click on Settings located under Browsing History/click on the View Objects button and delete any corrupted or none working versions of flash and java. Then I would go to and to install new version of flash and java.

1 Answer I open site and login and it asks for DOB (Date of Birth)I enter it and then IE wont run script Keeps going back to signin page instead of advancing. Just cycles back and forth...

no pc stated (hp what>? model)
came with IE7 and IE9 updated is best. and last. IE9 needs SP2 loaded.
best means max allowed on VISTA.
running IE9 are you, ? most older versions of IE are not supported
now at most top web sites, due to expliotation weaknesses.
I would AVOID ALL IE , of any kind, IE11 will not loan on VISTA.
all IE version are not supported by MS now, they are all DEAD.]
means each day forward, IE will be exploited more... by the bad guys. Time to upgrade or drop IE period.

Run FF V55 ONLY. (my recommendation to you)

Run EDGE. (personally I lothe it) , not on XP or vista , can't do that.
Run FF, v55+
never use IE again, in fact forget it ever existed.

answer 2:
  1. your unstated OS is infected. corruption, reload it?
  2. your IE6 is full of malware rendering it useless like most are.
  3. or someone turned off javascrept in your IE brower.
  4. running vista with out SP2 loaded.

even back in 2010 many top web sites said
each web site in time dropped IE6, the 7 then 8,
they had to.
google IE8 support dropped
google same IE9 , id say most web sites support 9 and up.
so why not use IE9.....

upgrade to 9
or remove it and reinstall it if 9 if failing

and last read the offical page on wamart support
they do not support all browers 2001 to now, no.

Internet Explorer is erratic. more info, 2 days ago a automatic down load came through. I let it install Internet Explorer 8 and a .net program. Internet Explorer became very erratic when called it would...

Do you have addons in your IE browser, if so right click on the IE Icon and click start in NO ADDON MODE and see if the behavior stops.
also, the .net framework can cause issues you may want to reinstall the .net 3 update individually and see if your IE settles down.
There are so many things that can cause problems in IE. especially when you update it, seems everytime there are problems.

This may be caused due to the fact that not all websites are "IE8-compatible" (they were designed for earlier versions of IE). So, to browse such websites you can turn on the compatibility feature in IE8 by clicking the Compatiblity View button next to the address bar in IE8.
