Help with Internet Explorer

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by reasonbass, Jan 27, 2004.

  1. My IE browser is going nuts on me. When ever I connect to the internet, and I press the IE icon. It gives me a message"internet explorer has encoutered a problem and needs to close". And I don't know how to fix it.

    Can I just deleted the current IE and re-install it? Has anybody had this happened to them? I'm using a Dell Dimension 4500. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

  2. Did you visit some sites with horny pictures ( XXX stuff ) ? They sometimes install plugins in your browser, without you knowing it. If one of those plugins is fork'ed, your internet explorer might go weird.

    Simply Put...

    Screw Internet Explorer! I have always had problems so I use mozilla or mozilla firebird. They are free,more stable, and faster. I suggest mozilla firebird.
    or if you want Mozilla then Mozilla
    Whatever you do check this out

    Good Luck

    They don't call it "Internet Exploder" for nothin. :spit:

    Did you install any program(s) right before this started? Try uninstalling to see if it resolves the problem.
  5. i Had no problems before, but then my brother used it. Can anyone tell me how to uninstall it. I think I know, but I want to make sure if I'm not screwing it up any further.

    I love your signature reasonbass - you wanker :D

    Do you have a disc for explorer that you got with the computer? If so, just delete from your programs and reload from the disc. I think I did this years ago and it worked fine.

    I'd also run your virus software and adaware to be safe.
  9. I'm using XP. For now I dowloaded the Mozilla Firebird. I think I'll probably stick with it. But still I would like to fix the IE.

    Thanks, but I still need more practice before I reach that level of wanking:D

    Thanks for all the help guys.
