Problem with Internet Explorer browser

  isabella341 22:14 31 Mar 2006

I can't open anything with the IE browser. I've been using Firefox for some time and was able to use IE as well. Now IE has stopped working and I don't know why. Anti-virus and spyware scans have not revealed any problems. The Firefox browser is working fine. I'm using an ADSL modem with broadband.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions as to what to do.

have you tried clearing the temporary internet files folder? If full, that can cause IE not to browse.

Something for you to try.
click here
Download the reistry optimiser trial version.

Save it to a folder of your choice
close IE or firefox
Open Winaso
Goto Repair Internet Explorer tick all boxes and repair.

This program has plenty of handy tools that are safe to use and is spyware free.

The only difference to the paid version is when using the scan and repair,the trial version will only correct 10 errors at once ,the full version repairs all.

At this time you only need the repair IE section.

Ive used this for 2 years now to good effect.

Hope this helps

Have you downloaded the latest version from the Microsoft website?

Have you checked that you have not inadvertantly denied Internet Explorer access via your firewall?
