I log on to PC Advisor every day. In the last 3 days IE 6 XP SP2 says it can not open the welcome page, have PCA changed their web page, such that IE6 wont open with this message,and says operation aborted. Can I change the security/script in IE6 to get it to open? I tried IE7 a while ago but had problems with that. Thanks David
1. I am on dial up so windows update is not on. I have IE7 on a stick, but that had problems when I installed some time ago. A lot of people had/have had probs with IE8. I suppose I could try it but am not very keen. I have ATI which means I could return to IE6 if necessary. 2. Any ideas why IE6 won't open PCA Forum and gives an error message - THIS HAS ONLY HAPPENED IN LAST 3 DAYS? Thanks David
On one of the PCs we use at work the same thing is happening. First discovered it with Google maps, (which we use a lot), and it's also happening, just on that PC, with this site!
The really perplexing thing is that even though it is just that PC, (no matter who logs in the problem is there, and it doesn't follow the person to another PC), the problem has persisted even after restoring a ghost image from way, way back!
that a couple of things I've heard/read mentioned as being the source of the problem are some sort of malware, (virus etc... but that doesn't ring true to me),...
Tools.Internet Options. Security. Custom level. Scroll down to Active scripting and disable it. Apply Ok. You should find pages will open twice as quick. I have to do that particularly on PCA where pages take ages to open. Just reverse it if it does not make any difference. With it running all I get is a lot of script errors with it switched off I get none. If you have java downloaded make sure you have the latest version and remove all old versions.
I would recommend going with firefox If you run xp ie8 should work but I do recommend getting a newer web browser as you will be a lot more secure. P.S-If you are running xp please upgrade to ie8 or get firefox because in the days of ie5/ie6 xp had big security problems with ie jwarn
