Ie8 Won't Start / Open


So i've done a bunch of searching around and cant find anyone who has had the same problem i am having. Basically it is pretty simple. I click on any ie8 shortcut, the computer thinks for a second and then nothing. I went through the steps to disable (the ie8 "uninstall") the program and then re-enable hoping that would solve it, but nothing has changed. I am kinda at wits end because i cant download and reinstall ie8 on windows 7 and i cant get a previous version like ie7 because that isn't supported as well. 95% of what i do can be done on other browsers, but that 5% is driving me crazy. Any ideas?

Ie8 Will Not Start

I have installed ie8 two times and get the same experience, click on explorer to start and it does not even start, go to task manager and it says it is not responding, check process tab and there are multiple instances running of the following app dumpreg.exe, and the performance tab for cpu is at 100%. I am a dummy when it coes to these things, and everything i have read is about ie8 hanging up after it is in use, my problem is after tow installs and reinstalls it won't even open.

Ie8 Start Up Error

Recently (as in the last 7-10 days) i receive the following message after boot up when launching ie8: "your last browsing session closed unexpectedly. I am given the choice of re-opening my last session or going to my home page. This only happens the first time i launch ie8 after booting up. I have tried most of the common fixes such as reset ie8, delete browsing history, delete hashed values from registry (.microsoft/internet explorer/recovery/active) all to no avail.

I also tried to disable all ie8 add-ons. When i went through tools/internet options/programs it didn't work. When i tried starting ie8 via start/all programs/accessories/ie (no add-ons), it worked like a champ. Clearly some add-on is still running but i can't see where.

I am running windows 7 on a fujitsu life book a1130, intel duel core, 4 gb of ram.

Office 2007
Norton internet security 2010
Norton utilities 14
Adobe reader 9
Adobe air
Adobe flash
Roxio creator
Cyberlink make disk
Cyberlink power director

As i mentioned, i tried disabling all add-on's but i think i am missing something.

Any ideas?

Explorer Crash - Cannot Open Start Menu

I experience a strange problem since today. As soon as i move my mouse pointer on the start button of windows 7 (home premium, 64bit), the explorer crashes. There's no way i can open the start-menu. I can start programs using desktop links normally, i scanned my system for viruses already and i didn't experience those problems in the past. The explorer just crashed and then is restarted (and crashes again as soon as i try to get to the start-button of windows). The only way to shut down my system is to use the task manager and i can only access programs by using desktop links. Most entries here deal with explorer crashes while using the right mouse-button - i can use right clicks without problem. So what can i do to fix this?

Ie8 Wont Open

In an evening, it wont open, in a morning it does. I connect via a 3g bt dongle, and up to a few days ago have had no problems, when ie does not open, i am am connected to the net via the dongle, and can open msn but ie just hangs, says connecting in the top tab and waiting for down the bottom. This will go on for hours.

I have tried:
System restore
Uninstalling/reinstalling my dongle
A different dongle
Opening ie without add ons
Resetting ie
Removed all toolbars from my laptop its a toshiba one
Defragging
Disc cleanup

I am now at a loss as to what to do and as to why ie8 will not open in an evening, but will first thing in a morning.

Ie8 Will Not Open Email

I am running windows xp, sp3 and ie 8 on 3 computers with avg antivirus. I have had zero problems until the other day. On one computer i.e 8 is not opening my yahoo or google e-mails. I can get to my inbox but when i click on the e-mail the computer responds "loading" and then times out. I have firefox and chrome browsers installed on this computer and can access my yahoo & google e-mails normally. I can also access my e-mails via ie8 normally on the other two computers.

I tried uninstalling ie8 and did manage to do this after uninstalling sp3. I then tried installing ie 7 but could still not access my e-mails. When i uninstalled ie 7 i was able to access my e-mails using ie6 (but it is very slow!). I reinstalled ie 8 and sp3 on the computer and still no success. I prefer ie8 to firefox and chrome and would welcome any suggestions to troubleshoot this problem.

Ie Will Not Open After Updating To Ie8

I recently reformatted my desktop pc and reinstalled xp home sp2. I have updated to sp3. I have just finished updating ie to ie8. I rebooted but, upon restarting, explorer did not open in the usual way. I selected my account to log in and my settings loaded but, when my desktop appeared, there was no taskbar and none of my icons. There was a small popup window about personalization of my browser settings (i'm sorry, for some reason i can't recall the wording) in the top left corner but, unfortunately, it hung and i had to reboot without shutting down properly.

Now, explorer starts as usual and, other programs seem to be fine but, when i click to open ie8, i get the little animated hourglass on my cursor for a moment or two - as though it is about to open - but then, it stops and nothing else happens. I would appreciate some direction on how to rectify the situation. I have to make do with a dial-up internet connection at the moment and so, if there's a way to fix it without downloading anything (simply because it takes a long time), that would be preferable.

Ie8, Office, Live Takes Several Minutes To Start

I'm running windows 7 64-bit with 12gb of ram on an i7 quad core. Whenever i start ie8 32-bit it takes several minutes before it will display a web page, most of that time it says waiting for about:blank in the status bar. I've searched the web and none of the solutions i've found work. I've noticed that office communicator and live meeting both take upwards of 5 to 6 minutes to start. I also use firefox and it starts on the same web pages as ie8 but only takes a second or two.

Since most of my work is using tools like share-point actually using firefox as my primary browser is not an option since it is not compatible with sharepoint. I've disabled all antivirus and even changed antivirus applications at one point so i don't think antivirus is an issue.

Attachments Wont Open In Ie8

Vista home premium, att.net/yahoo email, norton internet security.pdfs and word docs open everywhere, including web sites all accessed through ie 8. However, on att.net my email attachments will not open or save (word, pdfs). Uninstalled norton and they still won't save or open so i reinstalled norton. All was fine until a week ago or so. If i use mozilla and access att.net attachments open just fine.

Specifically i open the email, click on the attachment, norton scans (maybe through yahoo), says no viruses so i hit download attachment box, file download box opens and asks if i want to save or open, click either one and file download box opens with no info in time remaining boxes, etc. , Box just sits there with the graphics running and nothing happening.

Ie8 Some Links Open, Some Don't

I am new to the forums and i need help with windows 7 ie8, version 8. 0. 7600. 16385ic. I have been searching the forums for a solution but can't seem to find one that will help me. I will try to make this brief with minimal background info. Recently upgraded from vista home premium to windows 7 home home premium on an hp slimline s3000f. 32-bit os & amd athlon 64 x2 dual core processor. I noticed this problem after the recent security update for ie8 on 3/30

When i try to click a link on a page one of 2 things happen. If i am performing a search and click on the link, it opens in the tab the search was performed in. If i am clicking a link that should open a new tab such as in a yahoo or hotmail email or as i am writing this question, there are links on the left side of the page that appeared as simular questions, nothing happens when i click the links. One other thing i notice is when i close ie8, it does not ask if i want to close all tabs and when i access again i get an message to restore previous page or close.

From what i have read about others having this problem, i've looked in my program files ie8 folder for "c:program files (x86)internet exploreriexplore.exe ", all i see is "c:program filesinternet exploreriexplore.exe". When i look at the target on the shortcuts i see the same thing. I changed the target to "c:program files (x86)internet exploreriexplore.exe " and tried to start ie only to get an error "not valid".

I also have a laptop that is running vista with ie8 and not having a problem at all with ie8.

Ie8 Extremely Slow To Initially Open

I have recently installed ie8. When i try to open it, it takes about a minute and a half to open. The homepage is blank. Once pen, it works normally until i try to open a new tab which again takes about a minute and a half. I have researched and tried various things including:

Re-registering two specific dll files
Disabling all add-ons
Resetting defaults

Resetting the security settings that is talked about in the microsoft fixing ie8 document
I uninstalled ie8 and tried 7 and had the same results. Ie 6 works fine. I have ran a virus scan and malware scan and the machine is clean.

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Cannot Start The Service Because It Is Disabled

System: windows 7 ultimate when i want to manually install a windows update or any other program (logged on as admin) i get this message:

'cannot start the service because it is disabled or because there are no running devices connected' (approximate because my windows dlgs are in dutch). Ll actions that require admin privileges in the config panel are disabled (although i'm logged on as admin). I even cannot download new signatures for spybot search & destroy. Starting services. Msc as admin is impossible (get above mentioned message).

Running it as regular user means you cannot start/stop a service. I suspected malware but scans with sas, spybot, ms security essentials, threatfire didn't show any suspicious activity. So, i'm out of solutions. Do i have to do a repair with booting the windows dvd or will it become a reinstall.
My system partition backup is too old (i know. ).

Programs Start Problems

My computer (windows 7 home) crashed the other day and now it takes forever for any program i launch (eg. Of the desktop) to start. I have cleaned my computer and run full virus scans but it is still ridiculously slow.

It is bloody annoying and i hope someone knows what is wrong, please post a reply if you know how to fix it.

I am trying to play the quake 4 demo that i downloaded. I want to see how the demo works on my machine before i purchase the game. I downloaded the demo, letting the game install where it wanted to install (for lack of a better way to describe it). When i tried to play the game, i got the following message "found dll in pak file: c:/program files (x86)/id software/quake 4 demo/q4base/game000. Pk4/gamex86.dll

Windows Failed To Start

I have successfully installed windows ultimate 7. I think. I hesitate to say successfully because when i restart or shutdown and restart, more than half the time on reboot, the system i am installing windows 7 to resets and then comes to a "windows failed to start" screen.

At that point, if i choose to "start normally" it will - most of the time - start. On occasion, it will reset again, come to the "windows failed to start" screen again, i will chose "start normally" and it will this time boot. I thought at first it was a driver issue but i tried the install without the drivers and have the same issue. I have tried different keyboards, mice, etc. None of that helps. I have tried going into msconfig and unchecking "use original boot configuration". I read that this had worked in another forum with a similar problem. It was worth a try.
