Ie7 And Ie8 Graphics Do Not Load

On my†logon to the internet each day using the msn homepage, the graphics do not load initially until i refresh the page. It does not happen again until i have closed the homepage for a period of time and come back to it later to log on to the net again - as before everything on the homepage loads except the graphics until i refresh the page? I have just downloaded ie8, but the same problem was occurring last week when i had ie7.

I am using windows vista ultimate 2007 sp1 on a dell optiplex 755, intel core 2 duo with 2 gigs ram and 32 bit os - not a major problem, but it is an annoying.

Not Able To Print Directly From Ie7 Or Ie8

Having problems getting computers to print directly from the internet. 4 computers on a network (total of 5 workstations and 1 server). Mix of ie 7 and 8. When trying to print directly from internet in ie. The browser page shows an error and refreshes without printing. When using firefox and trying to print directly from internet, the browser is shut down and has to be restarted. Have tried running with no add-ins. Same problem. Have tried to run "sfc /scannow" no change.

I am starting to think there may be a corrupted system file somewhere. I don't know if it is affecting it or not, but also avg free anti virus is running on these computers. All are running windows xp home with service pack 3. The computers are all relatively new. Approx 6-9 months old. Any answers?

Install Ie8, Ie7, Ie6 Internet Explorer Versions

I have ie8 installed but also need to install ie7 and ie6 (i'm a designer and need to check my sites in previous browser versions). I can't find out how to do so as ie8 seems to be programmed to prevent the installation of previous versions.

Enlarge C: Drive

Installed 7 did not realize that it left drive partitioned. C drive is almost full. F drive is empty. Tried to expand c-not allowed in disk management but can shrink f(empty drive) by 87. 5 gig. If i shrink f will it go into c (main drive) and not erase anything on it? Or can i safely delete the partition which is really not needed? Tell me best way to go. A computer geek at best buy told me to try to delete partition by formatting?†Or do i need to use diskpart in command prompt? The example that the windows 7 inside book shows the expansion of a drive screen but i don't get that same picture.

Ie8 Favorites Do Not Work

I have the following problems with favorites in ie8:

Adding a favorite creates it twice (once with the url as name, once with the page title as name)
Clicking on any favorite in ie does nothing (no error, no feedback)

Favorites can be deleted without problem
Opening the url file in explorer opens a print window (the print is empty)
Reinstalling ie8 had no effect and no spyware was detected by multiple scanners

Anybody have any clue what could be the cause of this?

Ie8 Link With Target Not Work

I have windows 7 running ie8. After i installed some software, some links in web pages are no longer working. I notice that those "a"links have a "target" with something like "_blank", which would open a new ie window or a tab. Basically, the phenomenon is, when i click that link, a new tab is created with caption "connecting to ". The tab is always empty, and the address box shows the url of the original page.

However, for those links which open the web page in the same ie window, seem working fine. I would like to repair the ie8 or windows 7. But i donít know how. Itís greatly appreciated if someone can provide some solution.

Igoogle Doesn't Work With Ie8

Ie will not open my igoogle home page correctly. Using firefox when i sign into igoogle i get the igoogle page that i have created. When using ie 8 i get a igoogle page but it is not the one that i have set up with my g mail address, it does have some of the igoogle things just not any that i have added. I never had this problem with ie 7. When i installed win 7 about a week or so ago i don't believe i had this problem, if i did something i can't figure out what it is. I do get bing and msn ok just not the igoogle home page i set up with the gadgets i put on that home page.

In addition on ie 8 it shows the sing in but will not let me sign out and doesn't show my google e mail id. When i click on that sign in it doesn't go anywhere, do anything like go to the igoogle sing in as it should. I just reset ie for the 2nd†or 3rd time and tried to sign in to igoogle and i got a page that is somewhat like igoogle but isn't my page. I have 3 g mail addresses and i can sign in using firefox with all 3 and they display the igoogle home page correctly.

In addition ie 8 is a hog, slow and who knows what else but at times i need a separate browser and i paid for it and since it can not be deleted from win7 and i'm a stickler for getting what i paid for. In addition i cant install ie7 as it says that ie 7 is not supported on this system. I can't download a new copy of ie 8 as it says i already have it.

Ie8 Sort By Name Doesn't Work

I keep getting surprised about how the functionality of microsoft software keeps declining. Windows media player keeps getting worse with each version, and now ie8. I barely use it because i'm almost exclusively a firefox user, but firefox fails in scrolling some pages smoothly when zoomed in, and ie8 is better at that. So sometimes i use it only for that purpose, but now having re-installed windows 7 from scratch and having imported the bookmarks from firefox, i realize that in ie8 the "sort by name" functionality in favorites is broken.

When it imported the bookmarks from firefox, it placed all the bookmarks from firefox's bookmark bar into ie8's favorites bar, which is great, except that it placed them in reverse alphabetical order! Are you freaking kidding me? So i think, ok, this is really stupid, a multi-billion dollar corporation didn't have one person in the internet explorer team that saw this?But well, i figured i would just go to the favorites side bar, or the organize favorites box, right click on the "favorites bar" folder, and choose "sort by name". It doesn't work! It simply doesn't work.

It does nothing at all. And it doesn't work on the other folders in the favorites tree. And this is not an old, corrupted installation of windows, it's brand new from two days ago, from a reformatted hard drive, and it barely has any programs in it except for drivers. This is just pathetic, "sort by name" has been on ie since version 4 or 5, and now they took it away, but they are so lazy that they forgot to take it out of the context menu. Dded to this, ie is really ugly on the eyes, with that hideous baby blue color all over the interface, especially on the toolbars and tabs. Firefox at least has the anycolor and personas plugins to bring some decent visual taste to it.

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?

Cannot Upgrade To Ie7

I am trying to upgrade our church's computer to ie7 and have tried just about every idea i've read online. Downloading and installing the ie7 upgrade loses my internet connection. I get the "cannot display page" error. I have tried it with no firewall and with all add-ons disabled. I tried installing xp - sp3 upgrade today and lost connection with ie6. As soon as i uninstall ie 7 and xp - sp3 - everything works again. The connection diagnostic tells me three ports are blocked due to the firewall - but it's disabled. Ive written down everything i can find (ip address, gateway, etc. ) And nothing appears to change after the upgrade - i just can't get back to the internet. Has anyone else dealt with this problem?

Does anyone have any idea how to do that?

Attaching A Picture In Outlook

I can open my pictures directly from the start button. I see all my photos and it says there are 2 locations. C:usersname my pictures and c:userspublic my pictures. I can navigate from the computer prompt to either of these directories. They both show up and i can access the photos. The problem. When i am using outlook and try to attach a picture, i navigate to c:usersname but there is no my pictures folder showing?

Alternatively, i can also open documents from the start menu and there are 2 folders listed as my pictures. I am denied access to both. I am logged on as administrator and the permissions seem to be set to allow me access. On my other pc, i see the same thing (2 folders), but i can access the folder that is showing as a shortcut.

I don't know if these situations are related, but i'm stumped right now on getting outlook to browse to a folder that i can access my pictures from. Any help will be appreciated.

Folder Picture Customization

I have windows 7 professional running upgraded from xp home. We have music on an external hard drive and on the computer. On both the external and the internal hard drive all our folders we had customized with the cd cover on the folder. It stayed present on them for about 3 weeks then out of no where most of the customizations fell off. This has happened with xp twice and now with windows 7 pro. I have been searching to figure this out and am at a loss. I really like the way the folders look with the cd cover on them, but dont want to constantly fix them. I have over 800 folders with cd covers on them. I need help.

Picture Import Settings

I want to change the import settings for my canon camera when importing photos using windows 7. I had already managed to do this once but want to adjust the settings again. However, when i connect my camera to my pc, it automatically starts importing photos based on current settings with no option to change.

The above is from another thread regarding the same problem i have. The dialog box with "import settings" flashes, then goes away before you can make changes. The person above was given a link to a boilerplate answer that doesn't address the problem.

Ie7 Not Receiving Website Content

Running windows xp, using mozilla firefox as main browser and avr virus protection - no problems here at all. I originally installed ie8 but every time i tried to open would get "data execution prevention" message which would shut me down. Eventually set waiver for ie8 but same result.

Eventually removed ie8 and installed ie7. Now program opens but after typing any site address in address bar, tab appears with site name (eg. "Msn"0 but no content on page. On all occasions (whatever site i try to visit) it seems to be trying to contact "127. 0. 0. 1"

Is there a solution or should i simply forget about ie altogether. Problem is that the reason that i am using avr anti virus is that i need ie to install mcafee anti virus.

Ie7 - Cannot Manage Add-ons

I have a problem concerning ie 7 add-ons. I can't open the tab that customize the ie add-ons, neither through ie -> tools, or control panel -> internet options -> programs. I just doesn't open up when i click it (no error message, nothing).

My internet browsing works fine, with all add-ons activated, the problem is just i can't see the tab to see what's installed and change their status. I'm on a win xp sp3, mcafee av since a year ago (previously norton av). I don't know exactly when the problem started, but when i installed ie 7 i remember clearly it was ok. I remember my laptop became infected with a pen-drive virus, which was solved time ago.could that have affected this feature?

Flash Flicker Or Stutter In Ie7 And 8

When i visit a website using ie with any flash content in it the page loads and the flash window displays the image but the image flickers† noticeably as it updates at a rate of about 5 to 6 a second. Even modest minor motion animations on webpages will flicker. I also experience flickering of the flash content while passing the pointer over an ie page with flash content.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled flash. Same problem uninstalled and then upgraded flash to ver. 10 - still the same problem. This problem was present with flash 9. 2. X. X and remains with a new reinstall/upgrade to ver. 10. 0. 42. 34.

In ie internet options i have done a full restore in advanced settings and reset internet explorer settings – still the same problem.

I previously had ie 7 running and started having this problem after doing some massive upgrades on drivers and software on this system. I was well down this road when i first noticed this problem. A restore was not really an option. After trying to uninstall flash and reinstalling it and doing a repair on ie without any change in the problem i finally upgraded to ie 8. I am still experiencing the same flicker or stutter problem with ie 8. As might be expected any flash content that shows up in the windows live messenger control window also has the same issue.

System:
Winxp pro sp 3. 0 32 bit (current on all critical updates)
Msie 8. 0. 6001. 18702 (latest version)
Window live messenger† 2009 (build 14. 0. 8089. 726)
Flash player 10. 0. 42. 34† (latest version - non-beta)
Ati radeon 9200 – running ati catalyst v 1. 2. 2314. 20337 (latest version)

There is a different install of the flash plug-in/player for ie than the one firefox etc use. Both are separately installed while running the respective browsers and they seem to recognize the appropriate install.

When running any of the following browsers i do not have the ie problem.

Firefox 3. 5. 7
Safari 4. 0. 4
Opera 10. 1 (smoothest of all)
Chrome 4. 0. 249. 89 (38071)

When running ie or firefox, etc, i can visit http://www.Adobe.com/software/flash/about/†which does a installed flash status and version detection.

*All* browsers report:
"You have version 10, 0, 42, 34 installed"
††
Because of the nature of my work using ie is a necessary evil otherwise i would simply go to one of the other browsers which have already demonstrated themselves to be trouble free.
††
I have spent the last several days searching the web for solutions and have yet to find one that solves the problem. I have the most current video display adapter drivers and have tried different display resolutions and refresh rates without any success. The fact that i don't have any problems in firefox, safari , etc and they all use a common (with the exception of ie which has its own) flash plugin/player leads me to believe that the problem lies with the configuration of ie.

Desktop Picture Change To Black

Why does my desktop picture change to black. I know i don't have it set to change every so many minutes because i've not set that and it also just goes to black!†My aunt's computer with windows 7 does the same thing. I've not been able to figure out why this happens. I can set a desktop theme even, download one from the internet, the wallpaper is set to whatever the theme sets it to, looks great, then within about 10 minutes or so, pow! The background goes to black!†Any idea why this happens?

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.
