I have a problem with my Toshiba Satellite Pro L20 Laptop. I cannot get on the internet using Internet Explorer. I think the issue is that the only search provider I have in the list is Live Search, which says is unavailable. I cannot get on line to download any other providers. I can go online with Firefox.
I have come to the conclusion that it is something to do with my wireless settings, possibly firewall. I have mobile internet through T Mobile which works fine away from home, yet I try to connect to my wireless network in my home and I cannot get Internet Explorer 8 to connect. anybody any ideas, router settings are a bit technical for me?
I can go online with Firefox, but it is Internet Explorer I want to use. Firefox would allow me to download providers for Firefox only. I may be mistaken but I don't think providers are something you can save to your hard drive as a file and then run in Internet Explorer later.
What's wrong with using Firefox if it works for you? However if you want to use Internet Explorer try a REINSTALL of I.E 8. Using Google (via Firefox) go to Microsoft.com and download it. If you want to remove I.E first before you do a reinstall you can do that via Windows Updates depending on your OS which you haven't mentioned so far. BUT have you tried RESET as I mentioned previously?
