Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) review
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.
You really should update IE from 6 to 8 if only for the increase protection due to the security holes in 6 and 7.
Change to either IE8 or Mozilla Firefox
You won't be able to download IE7 now as that has been replaced by IE8.
IE8 is secure, stable and reliable. I don't think you'll have trouble with it
Why not have a try?
As Fruit Bat says IE6 is no longer secure or recommended
Is your computer set to get security updates automatically from Microsoft?
As I understand it, Windows XP SP2 is no longer being supported and you should download the SP3 update to Windows XP to continue to get security updates from Microsoft until 2014
Why not log on to the Windows update site and see what updates are available to you?
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?
I'm at work at the moment and they use IE6 here apart from a slight problem with consumerwatch the otherday it works fine.
to be a bit of a problem...
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!
Our IT folk are still investigating!
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),...
(IE 7 on our work PCs by the way)
To change Security script.
Scroll down to Active scripting and disable it.
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.
Thanks all, will consider your replies and report back.
Thanks again David
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
