Just switched on my PC to browse the internet and discovered for some reason that IE no longer connects to the net. I double click on IE and the browser opens but it just stays blank. The status bar at the bottom is also blank. Normally it would say 'opening.....' and show the progress bar but now nothing. I tried unistalling and reinstalling IE and also 'sfc /scannow' but to no avail. So I had to install firefox from a cd-rom and connect pcadvisor via that way. My interent is working fine. MSN is fine and updating other software is fine so its just IE.
Is there another way to fix IE or repair it? I dont know whats going on.
I have tried disabling Firewalls and antivirus but it still doesnt want to opena webpage for some reason. Have Tried a repair via sfc /scannow and also resinstalling IE from the XP installation disk just now. But still nothing...grrrr. lol.
I only just reinstalled XP yesterday morning and everything was working fine until later that night when I switched the pc off. I switched it back on again and it stopped working. I think the only option is to do another reinstall of XP but I will wait a bit for some more advice.
I'm happy to go along without IE and use Firefox but I cant get to the microsft update site without IE.
