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.

Connecting To Internet

I received a sony netbook for christmas which has windows 7 starter (i assume) already on it. I also received optus mobile internet which works and i was able to connect to the internet of my friend but when i got home i am unable to connect to my home internet.

When i choose internet connections and my home service it asks for a username and password. I have tired all usernames and passwords - netbook, internet provider, etc. I have a wep key and this is what i have used to connect my ps3 and psp plus other computers in the home but windows 7 doesn't seem to have this same function. Is there any way of changing the requirements so that i can use the wep key instead of the username and password? Or is this simplifying the problem too far?
We use a router/modem combo for all our other appliances. There is no button on this device that allows it to connect (this was suggested by someone).

This is totally frustrating and i was thinking of updating other computers to windows 7 but now think i will stick with xp and vista.

Problem Connecting To Internet

I am using a toshiba laptop (bought it for christmas 2008), with windows vista service pack 2. Living in dorm at ohio state, first noticed problem trying to connect through university wireless. Problem also occurs at home, on linksys.

I got back to osu on sunday from spring break, and i couldn't connect to the internet. I use firefox, never had any problems, but it wouldn't connect. My laptop would connect to the network, but the internet wouldn't connect. I took it to the it folks here, and they did a system restore to a few days back and then used internet explorer to bring up the internet. The internet finally connected, unlike before, and everything was fine and dandy. Problem solved.

Until i got back to my dorm and i tried to use firefox again and it still wouldn't work. The internet would connect through ie, but the firefox browser wouldn't connect. (I get the error message below) i successfully downloaded opera but it gave me the same message as firefox. I tried to download chrome, and my computer wouldn't even let me start the download. So. I've been stuck using internet explorer.

[Unable to connect. Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at yahoo.com
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that firefox is permitted to access the web. ]

I made the observation that my version of ie was outdated (got the computer for christmas 2008, and i still had internet explorer 7), so i downloaded the most recent version (8). And wouldn't you know it, now the newest internet explorer won't work! My computer can connect to the network, but no up-to-date browser will let me connect to the internet!

I have removed and re-added all of my wireless networks. I have tried to take down my firewall, but that didn't work. (Firewall is back up now. ) I uninstalled firefox, and re-installed it, removed add-ons and personal information, and it still didn't work. I have run scans with ad-aware, windows defender, avast, and malwarebytes, with no report of malicious files.

I have noticed that if i allow windows to install updates, this problem occurs. I have to restore my system back a few days every time it installs an update (i have since made all installations manual until this is fixed. )

Proxy server is disabled on both firefox and ie. I hope you can help me with this problem. I am talking to people in other message boards and my complaint is climbing its way through the ranks of the ohio state it department. Hopefully someone here can be of some assistance. If you need any more information, ask.

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.

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?

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.

Can't Share Internet To Lan From Huawei 3g Internet Adaptor

I am in severe need of some help because i am about to go crazy trying to figure this out. I recently upgraded my mom's pc to windows 7 and i'm having trouble getting her network back in order. She has a huawei mobile broadband adaptor (3g), model ec168, that i'm trying to use to supply internet to her laptop and xbox360 via her router. I had it working for the last year when windows xp was still on her pc, but since installing windows 7, i can't get it to work. I'm using the same settings as i was before but i get nothing.
Here are the settings that used to work:

1. I enabled internet connection sharing on her 3g adaptor and shared it to the lan adaptor.

2. I set the lan's ip address to "192. 168. 0. 1"/subnet mask was the usual "255. 255. 255. 0" and the default gateway/dns server fields were left blank (since the pc was serving as the gateway and the dns sever).

3. I turned off dhcp on the router and set the router's ip to "192. 168. 0. 10"

4. I left the xbox360 and laptop set to "automatic"

With these settings it worked like a champ on xp, but i get nothing on windows 7. Also, everytime i turn ics "on" through the 3g adaptor, it says that it has assigned the ip address of "192. 168. 137. 1" to the lan. Not sure why but it does.
