Internet Explorer Does Not Work After Automatic Update


Windows xp with sp3 is downloading the updates for kb972270 and kb955759. They seem to install fine, but when i reboot and go into ie, i immediately get a windows error. (Sorry, did not get the error code. ) After removing both thru the control panel, add/remove programs, ie works fine. But xp will immediately download the updates again. Another xp with sp3 is working fine. Don't know if it has anything to do with it, but according to the add/remove program list, it appears that kb955759 was installed first and then kb972270. With the other pc, kb972270 appears first in the list.

No problems with any other programs, just ie.

X86 File - Internet Explorer 8 Will Not Work

I have recently bought windows 7 and installed it and i have ran into a few problems. First my system is a 64-bit system and i have x86-files.

1) here is my main problem internet explorer 8 will not work when it is started from the x86 file. However, if i start internet explorer from my x64 file it will work correctly.

2) i have no idea how to uninstall the x86 file of internet explorer 8 so that i can reinstall it. When ever i attempt to uninstall it tells me that trusted installer is stopping me.

More information. I have other programs saved on x84 files and they work fine example: microsoft office, adobe, etc. So i'm wondering if there is not a problem with the internet explorer 8 file.

Here is my question how can i uninstall the x84 file of internet explorer so that i can reinstall it.

I found out some more information. I found out how to turn ie8 but i still dont know how to uninstall the program here is the website that showed me how to turn it off: www.Digitaltech.co. Cc/504/how-to-uninstallremove-internet-explorer-8-from-windows-7-build-7048/

Security Updates Stop Internet Explorer From Connecting To Internet

All ie7 security updates i install (cumulative or not) cause ie7 to not be able to connect to the internet. I have to uninstall the security update in order to connect to the internet. I have windows vista 64, ie7 and cable internet. I have checked for virus's several time using microsoft security essentials and malwarebytes antivirus and it always comes back clean. I am also running windows firewall and have put internet explorer on the exception list as well as turned it off to see if that was causing it from connecting and it did nothing. Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

Automatic Internet Time Synchronization Stops Working

I need the local time to be synchronized to the second and hence use the internet time synchronization option. As the computer's local clock drifts quite a lot, i have set the synchronization frequency to 5 minutes in the registry. These settings seem to work for a week or so, and then suddenly the clock stops updating without alerting me. I assume this relates to a connection problem to an ntp server, but instead of retrying in 5 minutes the whole synchronization scheme stops until i manually restart synchronization. Is there any way that i can reliably ask the computer to synchronize, and retry if a connection is broken?

Automatic Image Resizing Doesn't Work In Ie8

When i open an image in internet explorer, if it's larger than the window, it doesn't resize to fit the window. I've tried setting, unsetting and resetting the 'enable automatic image resizing' checkbox in internet options/advanced/multimedia , and it just doesn't work. This doesn't work, in two separate windows 7 machines, one of them an upgrade from xp, one of them a new windows 7 professional 64bit out of the box, so i don't think it's a hangover from an upgrade setting. Any clues on what else i need to do to make image resizing work in windows 7?

Two Internet Explorer

I have a hp pavilion notebook pc. I was running vista home premium. I had a "free upgrade" when windows 7 was released. I followed the install (update not clean install) instructions for windows 7 and everything showed successful. My problem is i have 2 internet explorers. 1st- "internet explorer (64-bit)", 2nd is listed as program(x86) internet explorer. My computer is running a 64-bit system. This happened when i upgraded to windows 7. I thought (x86) runs with 32-bit system. How do i correct this? Problem installing other software.

Automatic Update Error

My other computer is currently running win7 home 64-bit has a startup error. I am assuming it has done an automatic windows update as it worked fine last night. Started it this morning and just as it gets to the windows loading screen i get the message "applying update operation 50 of 50 (registrymachinecomponents. )"The screen is frozen at this point and will not load windows. I have tried rebooting but it does nothing but offer loading windows normally (which goes back to this) or doing a startup repair, which then fails, reboots and back to this. I cant get into windows or a desktop at all. Anyone help please?

Failed Automatic Update

I tried to update the latest microsoft updates last thursday and after 4 hours the system froze, so i canceled job and went to sign off and got the usual message "updates being applied" and 12 hours later it was still on 1 of 14, so i powered off. I then went back in and found that all updates had failed. I can not find a way to try and reinstall the updates, and when ever i try to sign off it says "installing updates 1- xxx and just stays like that for hours. Had lunch with a friend yesterday, who told me she had same problem as well as another friend that she spoke to. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

How To Pause An Automatic Update?

I am currently in the middle of a windows automatic update download (for vista). I have dial-up internet access so downloads of this nature tend to be very slow.concurrent with this i am trying to download another (large) program via the internet. Progress on this other program has virtually stalled and i'm thinking that the on-going windows download maybe an obstacle to my other download. Given this i would like to "pause" my windows activity until i can complete the other.

How can i do this (i try right clicking/left clicking on the windows download icon at the lower right task bar but nothing pops up to facilitate a pause. ) I see that this option for a pause is not available w/xp, is it the same with vista? If so, what if i changed "automatic updates for windows" to "manual updates for windows" - would this allow me to pause it. If so would the conversion to manual take effect immediately w/the current download?

Which Version Of Internet Explorer Am I Using?

How can you determine which version internet explorer you are using? I have been using version 7 but recently downloaded version 8. However, i keep getting messages on my yahoo web page saying that i am still viewing the browser with an old version of ie. I still have the old icons for ie on my desktop and on my start menu. No matter which one i use, i get the same message. When i look at my uninstall/install software listing, it does indicate that ie8 has been installed. Why i getting the message from the browser?

Automatic Update Notification Of Old Updates

I reinstalled xp professional and office 2003, then retrieved what i thought was all the updates. My system shows that i have sp3 for both. I received an automatic update notice this week that included approx. 26 updates for office 2003, office 2007 related to compatibility and others. When i go to the link for many of them, they have a publish date in 2008. Ironically i did the reinstall in december of 2009.

I don't appear to have these fixes/updates when i look at add/remove programs but my question is why am i just now getting these updates.

Automatic Update Crashes Computer

Windows update automatically updated and then restarted my computer yesterday. The computer will not restart. I did f8 to restart at last good configuration but it will not restart - it runs through all the drivers and then freezes. If i click "start windows normally" it will try to go to the welcome screen but it closes down, restarts, closes down, restarts repeatedly until i just turn the computer off. I have windows xp. In safe mode, it will run through the drivers and then freeze. I cannot get it to go to the welcome screen. I cannot get to the desktop to run anything. I cannot get to the start menu.

System Crash After Automatic Update

An automatic update to windows was installed tuesday jan 19 when i shut-down my computer. The screen requested that i allow the update to complete before turning off the system. I returned to the computer 2 hours later to find that the update was still 'in-progress' i turned the machine off and re-booted. Upon reboot the system is unresponsive. There is continuous disk activity and 99 percent memory usage but only 3 percent cpu usage. The desktop takes almost 5 minutes to appear - when i select windows explorer the system freezes and will not respond to anything other than the power button. When i restart i receive a window that states there was an abnormal termination.

I am given the option to enter 'safe boot'. The system does not respond - instead it waits 25 seconds and then does a normal start. The process is repeated each time i attempt to start the machine. I have rebooted in excess of 10 times with the same result. I attempted to use the system repair disk i created when i installed windows 7 home premium - the system asks if i want to boot from the dvd - i respond 'yes' and nothing happens - after some period of time it reverts to a normal start.

I have called microsoft support 10 times - i have been cut-off 3 times, mid sentence and have received a flawed recording 7 times - the recording starts ok and then starts repeating a partial sentence over and over.

Automatic Update Tried To Kill Computer

The only thing installed yesterday was a windows vista automatic update. I turned off my laptop, and when i got home i tried to boot it up. Windows would not start up in normal mode, so i booted up safe mode, scanned with my antivirus, antimalware. Etc. And found nothing. So i used system recovery and set the laptop back to the day before thinking maybe something odd had snuck in. It worked fine, so i thought it was good. I created a new recovery poin, re-installed the windows update and shut down.

Turned it on this morning to find it had the same problem. I booted back up in safemode, used system recovery again and used the recovery point i had set right before i downloaded the windows updates and now everything works fine. I've disabled the automatic updates and i havent had any problems since.

Does anyone know why the windows update is trying to kill my computer? The auto-updates run all the time and i've never had this problem before.

Pc Does Not Boot After Installing Automatic Update

Last night, computer automatically downloaded update beofre it shutdown. Turn on computer this morning, and computer wants to restart itself to complete the installation of update. The annoying little reminder that pops up on the screen every 10 minutes or so reminding you that you need to restart your computer so it can finish. So it re-started and never booted repeat: the computer will not boot you can turn the computer on, green light comes on, motor runs, fan runs, but nothing happens. No welcome screen, no sound from the computer indicating it is trying to boot, no wallpaper, no nothing monitor goes into sleep mode and stays dark. What kind of update did it download from you that made this happen, and how do we fix this problem.

Internet Explorer 8 Memory Leak

So, a couple days ago, i installed internet explorer 8. I was sick of ie7 sucking so much memory up, nearly 1. 5 gigabytes of ram. But i was wrong that upgrading would help. Whenever i start up ie8, it takes up about 50, 000 kilobytes of memory, not so bad. 30 minutes and 15 web-pages later, internet explorer is up to 400, 000, which isn't that bad, right? Nope. 45 minutes later, internet explorer is slowing down, and using a whooping 1. 43 million kilobytes, nearly 3/4 of my entire ram. 1 minute later, ie8 stops working all together.

My first suspicions lead me to believe that add-ons* were causing this madness, so i deleted and uninstalled all of them. Didn't work. Deleted all the temporary files. No beef. I searched the web for answers, but i found none. The problem is so annoying i've been using my old sony vaio, instead of my vista.

Internet Explorer Stopped Working

I can not use my facebook any longer. If i use gmail (googlemail), i can see only inbox. I can not even forward emails or reply emails. Once i try to reply my emails or sign in facebook, the pop-up blocker appears and says "internet explorer has stopped working! A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. " I didn't do any changes to my computer aside from installing some dictionaries cd and copy and paste some fonts files and powerpoint files from my memory stick to the desktop. I tried to change the internet settings, but it was still useless.

Only Internet Explorer 64-bit Works

Only internet explorer 64 bit works. I've searched everything. And no answers. I believe it a driver thing but i know others have experienced this issue.google chrome won't work nor will firefox, nor will ie 32 bit. Multiple reboots. Total scan, don't have norton, installed nod 32 and uninstalled it, did the winscock things as admin, all the other suggestions too. Problems with adobe flash downloads. Etc. Yes, i've done everything and tried everything and still no fix! Why is none from microsoft giving an answer.

It happened before about 2 months ago to me and i roll backed to a date. Then it worked. Then re-installed all windows update. All was working fine then google chrome stopped working. Just like that 3 days ago. I tried to restore/rollback to that same date and nothing. Then went through all the updates again and a million other things. I don't want a work around. I want a fix! Can anyone suggest the boot method so both 32 & 64 bit drivers work properly? It's very frustrating. It's a new hp computer running windows 7 64-bit and windows essentials as my antivirus.

Ms Office And Internet Explorer Crash After Upgrade

Microsoft office and internet explorer crash after upgrade to windows 7 premium 64 bits. I bought my pc in october just before windows 7 was released. It came with vista premium 64 bit and a voucher to get windows 7 as soon as it was released.

I did get my copy of windows 7 via the retailer and did the upgrade (i would have preferred a clean install but apparently that was not possible). After that the system is microsoft unfriendly. All other applications work without problem but all microsoft stuff just crashes.

- Internet explorer crashes if you try to open any internet shortcut. You can only open a blank
Page and then type in a url. If you click on any url shortcut anywhere else, it craps out. Whenever i reenable ie (windows features) then it re(installs) [we all know it is there all the time], win restarts for the update to the system and as soon as i open ie. It says "internet explorer stopped working" followed by "windows is looking for a solution (that never finds)" and after than the only alternative is to debug or close. Ie is totally useless on my system. Firefox on the other hand still works like a charm.

- Office applications such as excel and word crash if you click on any microsoft office document
  Shortcut. You can only open a blank document and then use the file dialog to open a document.

- Outlook crashes after the wizard.

All in all, the entire microsoft suite has gone to craps. I have uninstalled ie, i repaired office, i removed and reinstalled office but the problems continue.

Reinstalling win7 and reconfiguring my system will take at least a couple of weeks and i need it to do my work. All other applications (third party) work without a glitch, all microsoft applications are crashing. Besides if i reinstall win7 i will have to go through the hassle of reactivating kaspersky without loosing my 3rd license as well as flight simulator x which was also activated.

And no, it is not my antivirus (kaspersky 2010).

Automatic Windows Update Error Code 646

I get error code 646 while trying to download updates via automatic windows update. I have vista premium installed. Up until 3 months ago, it worked perfectly. Over time, installation of some of the updates failed. Now, they all fail. Currently, i have 9 updates for several ofl my microsoft applications that have failed. I tried disabling the norton internet security while downloading. I've also tried downloading each one of the updates manually from the windows update site with norton firewall disabled. None of this has worked. I cannot believe the number of people having this problem! How do i fix it?
