Hi all, can someone please point me in a direction to start? My IE won't open any pages. This started 2 or 3 days ago. The only way I can access the internet is by doing system restore back to the 13th. My connection is fine, it seems to be an IE problem. At the bottom of the page, when it is trying to open it says something along the lines of ieframe.dll bad.

I have no idea what to do or where to start. I would appreciate any help as doing a system restore to get on the net is wearing me right out. :thumbsup:

Try downloading a different internet browser. Internet Explorer is actually a security risk. If you go to a bad site (keyloggres, virus, etc. they can use your ActiveX controls to access your computer and plant viruses and spyware in it. trust me, i use mozilla firefox. it does not require everything that ie requires, and it is alot faster. download at www.firefox.com

but if u sitll want to use internet explorer. check your firewall it may be blocking access to ie. or, someone may have already have acces to your computer :D

OKey doke, I just installed Firefox and still cannot access net. Here's what it says:

Unable to connect













Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at en-us.www.mozilla.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.


What can I do?

hmm i get that sometimes also

but its only when my internet is slow , or it is not connected at all.

it may say "56.0mbps but its really not connected. its a glitch in the internet servers.

try repairing your internet connection and try again

by the way, what are you connected to?

Hi skullypuss,

There are many possible reasons why this is happening, and the contributing factors vary for each computer.

Go to the Control Panel then Network Connections.
Click once on your active Connection.
From the menu on the left, select Repair This Connection.

Is there any Proxy set or used?
Check to see if set to automatic:

In Firefox,
Go Tools/ Options/ Advanced/ click on the Network Tab, then click Settings.
Select the radio button that says Auto Detect Proxy Settings for all this Network
Click Okay

In Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools/ Internet Options/ click on the Connections tab, then click on LAN Settings.
Select Automatically Detect Settings
Click Okay twice.

If no joy:

Click Start / Run / type in; cmd/ and at the black command screen type in; ipconfig /flushdns
and/or try:
Start / Run / type in; regsvr32 urlmon.dll
Click Okay.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

aaaaaaaa a~Suzie Wagner

Squee!!! TMacK it worked! You are my hero. I don't know what any of that stuff means, at all...but I followed your instructions to a 'T' and I am back in business. Thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it. Thanks to everyone who took time out of their day to read/respond to my question.

Ack! I woke up this morning to the same problem again! My pc updates at 0300 and restarts automatically. Looks like after that the same problem occured as I was on last night and it was fine. This morning I had to use system restore again. Grrr! Why me? :thumbsup:

Interesting....

By updates are you meaning Windows Updates?

For now, go through the steps in post #8 again, and take note with which step you are able to load web pages.
We have to determine if this is a setting, update or connection problem.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.

Thanks! I don't know if this will help at all, but I have Vonage and my phone always works with no problem...so I am assuming it's not an issue with my connection? (No laughing if that was a dumb thing to say.)

Yes, my Windows updates every morning at 0300 and restarts. I was able to use system restore to yesterday's date instead of going back to Tues also. Fyi. :thumbsup:
