All Programs Open With Internet Explorer


I mistakenly set up my default program to internet explorer, now any program ex. ''computer, control panel settings'' i try to open, they open with internet explorer. So now actually i am unable to use my computer. I try to open for example mozilla firefox and internet explorer pops up and is asking me if i want to run or save mozilla firefox, when pressing run the window disappears and then comes back again and nothing happens. I tried to restore my pc to a previous date and the restore program tries to open with internet explorer as well. Please help me, i have no idea how to fix this.

Internet Explorer 64-bit Missing From All Programs List

How do i restore internet explorer (64 bit ) to the "all programs" list? I dragged internet explorer ( 64 bit) from the "all programs" list to the desktop. Then, by accident i deleted that shortcut which went to the recycle bin which i actually emptied after. When i clicked on the start menu and the "all programs" list again the link to internet explorer (64 bit ) was missing to my dismay. Is there anyway i can get internet explorer ( 64 bit ) to show again on the "all programs" list? Windows 7 home premium

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.

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.

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?

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.

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/

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).

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.

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?

Flash Player Causes Internet Explorer And Firefox To Freeze

Every time i open chess titans my computer blue screens hard drives running through ide disappear. When flash drive plugged in adobe flash player causes both internet explorer and firefox to freeze. Windows 7 professional 64bit, p5w dh-deluxe motherboard q6600 2. 4 ghz processor 2 gb g. Skill 800mhz memory, geforce 8800 gts video card, 10, 000 rpm hard drive, ultra 1, 600watt power supply w/ 117 amps on 12v rail ect. All windows updates and newest drivers on everything.

I have multiple possibly unrelated problems. First, every time i open chess titans my computer blue screens (doesn't actually show the blue screen) just flips off and back on. I am running the minimum amount of ram for windows 7 x64 but i will play hard core games fine. I uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Second, i have 2 hard drives running through ide (non raid) they work fine until i plug in my flash drive then they disappear i can't even find them under disk management.

My flash drive is formatted in ntfs and is 64gb so possibly windows in recognizing it as a hdd. Finally, adobe flash player causes both internet explorer and firefox (whichever one has the page open) to freeze when loading certain web pages eg. Pandora.com  some pages work fine like adobe (it says flash player was successfully installed) but most pages do not. Any ideas?

Can't Open Explorer.exe, Control Panel, Or Help

Brand new windows 7 computer - can't open explorer.exe, control panel, or help. Can't see or save to c: or d: drives. Got the computer last night, and it worked fine. But tonight i can only access ie, media player, etc.

I only have the default user account at this point, so i have admin rights. I haven't really done much yet since i just got the computer last night. I was going to transfer files from my old vista computer tonight, but i can't even open up explorer on my new windows 7. I tried rebooting, but it didn't help. I also ran the sfc; it did not find any integrity violations.

When i click on the folder icon on the task bar, i get a dialog box with a heading of "explorer.exe" and a message stating "windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. " If i try to print a web page to xps, it doesn't commit the save on the c: drive (os and program files) or on the d: drive (data).

I have no idea why it is doing this! It is a brand new system. Last night i installed windows updates and changed the desktop background. I haven't installed any programs or transfered data. And it was just fine last night; this problem started when i turned it on tonight.

Ie7 Internet Options Will Not Open

I want to upgrade to ie8 but each time it tells me that the install has brought forward an error from ie7. My ie7 will not open internet options, thus i cannot "easily" disable add-ons, etc. I have gone so far as to completely re-installing xp and sp3, re-installed ie7 (or ie8) but continue to have the same problem when i try to open ie7 internet options; the sub-screen temporarily flashes and closes (without any error message).

I have a laptop on the same home lan running vista and ie7 but i don't want to upgrade it to ie8 until my desktop will successfully install it. Most of the on-line fixes keep pointing me to ie8 pages. I could sure use a simple fix that does not entail modifying the registry.

Cannot Open Or Save Excel / Word Files From Internet

Recently i have not been able to open or save any excel or word files from any website or yahoo e-mail. When i click on the file i get a pop-up asking to save or open and i choose one then i see the file progress, then then nothing. The pop-up closes and no file, opened or saved.

In the past i've been able to open and save both excel and word files but now i can't. I was on the phone for an hour with hp support and they were of no help. They had me delete my cookies disable add-ins and reset ie8, none of that helped. Any ideas? Is this a ms office issue or ie issue?

Problem Saving / Opening Files In Explorer & Programs

I have problem saving and opening files in windows explorer and third-party programs. I've been having this problem for a couple of months now and it's very annoying for example, when i use the snipping tool in windows 7 the files will not save so i have to take a print screen of that and open it with more software. Also, when i download files in firefox and other things, clicking 'open file location' does absolutely nothing. I assume these two issues are related as they started occurring around the same time.

Programs Wont Open

I just recently got a dell laptop for christmas and it works perfectly but after a couple days of using it i tried to use the webcam and it would not open. I'd click on the link but nothing happened. No error messages popped up or anything. I clicked troubleshoot compatibility and then it opened but now everytime i go to use it it asks if dell webcam can make changes to the computer. Also, the volume on the videos do not work through the webcam. Today i tried opening itunes and it clicked but would not open just like the webcam. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Cannot Open Folders / Programs

Hi, ive got issues with windows 7 that are progressively getting worse. It began with live messenger, affects mozilla and has now affected opening general folders. When i attempt to open a folder, it appears as an icon in the taksbar, and when i click to view it, it expands onto the screen, but keeps moving to the right of the screen and off the side almost instantly, meaning i cannot view it. The folder/program are always active at the time, because when i have multiples open (eg watching movies in mozzila pages) i can see the thumbnails changing and moving etc.

I managed to rid the mozilla problem by completely reinstalling it, but no luck with msn, and now i cant even open my computer or other folders. However when i run windows in safe mode i do not have this problem. When i right click the icon/s on the task bar i am only given options to view frequent folders (which does not work), pin to task bar, close window and open explorer(which also does not work). Ideas?
