It (IE8) is working better, but the following error keep returning 404 when I am on a web page all is fine until I hit next (page) and it all of a sudden appears not able to connect and when I run the link to find out why I get error 404. This is frequent too. Also how do I turn my toolbar-view, etc. so I can print. The web page also says I have no admin rights when i try to use IE. Haven't seen error IE is closing anymore. Probably was a google issue.

My previous thread is here: http://forums.whatth...es_t110245.html

Edit: Charlene, I split this off into a new thread so it doesn't get lost.

To get the File Edit View Favorites Tools Help bar, right click on an empty area of the tool bars at the top of IE8 and select Menu Bar.

It sounds a bit like Winsock corruption. See here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811259

Scroll down to this section: Reset Winsock for Windows Vista and follow directions, see if that makes a difference.

If not, I would suggest uninstalling then reinstalling IE8 as follows: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700

Does the problem occur with IE7 or IE6, which ever is left after uninstalling IE8? If not, reinstall IE8 via Windows update, see here:

http://www.microsoft...ndowsvista.mspx

Scroll down to the section Installing optional updates and drivers

It says when I am on a web page and click on a item which usually opens another web page "Internal Error" I have seen this quite a bit lately. I never had a problem with IE 7.

Hi! We finally reconnected :thumbup: I would try uninstalling IE8 as I suggested and see if IE7 has the problem. If not, reinstall IE8 and see if it comes back.

I am getting an error msgIE 8 App Hang before I uninstalled it now these other issues have come up. I tried to copy to clipboard but didn't find where the clipboard is. Charlene Of course 8 wants us to re install. Charlene

I'm finding it hard to follow what you are saying. What state is your computer in now?

IE8 installed or uninstalled? If un, is IE7 now your browser and are you getting errors there?

and have had 38 windows open up at one time - what does this mean? What do/did you do to make this happen? Intentional or did that open by themselves.

To capture a screen image and upload it here, see these links:

Note: To start Paint, click on Start then Run, type mspaint and press Enter

Have you tried using a different web browser, like FireFox, Opera or Safari? We've been working on this for awhile now so I've lost track a bit.

I am running IE 7. I uninstalled IE8 and rebooted. I continued to surf theweb and on some links from an email with a link provided in the email I tried to open itand the error message reads closing IE checking for solution. It opened anyway opening up 38 windows (bad website) just completely without allowing me to close them. Norton blocked them for they had a trojan. . Then I closed the group of 38 windows and the computer became unresoponsive. After 30 minutes I was able to open parts of a web page which would partially open so I again restarted the computer and works ok since.

Charlene, Sorry to butt in here... but it's most unwise to click on a link in an email......there is rarely any real need to do so. Many folks infect their machines by clicking on links..... Regards paws

Youch! As Paws said, clicking on links in E-mails is one of the more common methods of getting a computer virus. Good that Norton blocked it but just to be sure, please go back to your malware thread:

http://forums.whatth...ed_t110208.html

I sent a PM to LDTate asking him to reopen it. Once that's done post the needed log files as you did initially.

You are probably okay as Norton is a good AV program but better safe than sorry.

Please do give FireFox a try (link in my previous post) if the problem reoccurs.

I may or may not have asked this previously, but do you have your important data backed up? If not, now would be a very good time to do so.

Pictures, E-mails, Favorites, Address book, Documents, etc.

There are a variety of ways to do this.

1. Backup to a flash drive
2. Backup to CD/DVD
3. Backup to a 2nd internal hard drive
4. Backup to an external hard drive
5. Backup to the internet using software like Carbonite or SOS Online Backup

Once your data is backed up, it then opens the possibility of restoring your computer to it's factory installed state if these problems continue to occur.

Today I heard and saw allot of flickering and bells going off. I am not sure why the bells were going of but the all the sites or that were open (and regular software) had a high ring like a trip wire being hit 1000000000 time overlapping and the same with the flashing of everything visable. I do have a back up. Foxfire works fine but has some features like replying with a link when necessary
