IE 7 Cannot display webpage

Post by bG9ja2VyN » Thu, 29 Mar 2007 12:32:42


I cannot access the web from my desktop. It has worked fine for many years
then one afternoon it give me the "can't find website" message. Funny thing
is my laptop works fine on the same "network". When I tried to repair the
connection on my desktop it tells me it cannot renew my IP address. The cable
modem is obviously working as I am able to use my laptop, cables themselves
don't seem to be an issue since I changed them around to no avail.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Refer to previous days posts on same subject. Many can no longer access the
internet through IE7, though no help appears to be forthcoming. Most have
just downloaded Foxfire or another browser and now ignore IE7. If you have
Vista you won't be able to easily delete IE7 Either. Some have indicated that
by right clicking the IE icon, and selecting "run as administrator", that
they are able to get a page to load.

Multitudes of posts going back a couple weeks at least about this issue. I
also cannot access the net through IE7 after two months on a brand new Vaio
laptop (vista) with no problems. I've read other posts where a work around is
to right click on the IE icon then select run as administrator. This did not
work for me though, perhaps it will be a solution for you until Microsoft
turns it's head to see what the noise is. For now it's the "dogs barking,
but the caravan moves on" scenario.

I know of two causes for the vast majority of such problems:
1. Incompatible add-ons: What if you right click the IE icon on the desktop
and choose Start Without Add-ons?
Or go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
Explorer (No Add-ons).

2. Malware already installed on the computer: Help with malware

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing Messenger Plus, whose ads for
malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince you that you
owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.

Frank,
I've done ALL you suggest and more. Last night I even downloaded ad-ware SE
got the new definitions, ran a full system scan twice, and found a total of
SIX cookies...whoo hoo. I already own Windows Defender that came with the
Vaio. I'm running vista, I uninstalled microsoft updates from the 24th which
is when this problem occurred. Is it possible, that the problem is with IE7?
I appreciated your advice, but it's just not working.
