Hi all,

So once again I'm in need of some assistance here...

My IE 7 seems to be acting weird. Sometimes NONE of the pages will load (ie. it just sits there "connecting"...but nothing loads). This applies any page, including Google, BC, or anything else. (Even with multiple tabs, trying to load different pages at the same time)

However if I use another browser such as Firefox or Opera, (at the same time while IE is "thinking"), the page loads perfectly (with the same webpage too).

If I wait a while and click Refresh (or Stop, Go) then it works fine again.

This is pretty annoying...my other computer works fine with IE7.

I've tried "Resetting IE7" but it doesn't seem to help.

Any help appreciated, thanks!

There are usually three causes for the majority of these problems.

One is incompatible add-ons: What if you right click the IE icon on the desktop and choose Start Without Add-ons?
Or go to Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

Or you can try Resetting Internet Explorer Settings.
Tools / Internet Options / Advanced. Scroll to the bottom and click Reset Internet Explorer Settings.
See How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings .

Hi,

I just tried disabling all addons, but it still has the same behaviour after a while.

I've already tried resetting IE Settings.

Last but not least, a anti-malware scan did not yield any results.

Thanks!

Edit: This problem has been going on for some time now. I believe it's been like this after I did a fresh install of XP.

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

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 still 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.

If all else fails, you can uninstall IE7.

Sorry for the slow reply.

Unfortunately the first two results did not help. The "regsvr32 urlmon.dll" command seemed to make IE work for a while, but just a while ago it did not work again.

If i uninstall IE7 and go back to IE6, should i then install version 7 after?

Thanks.

From my experience,I couldn't uninstall IE7,till I uninstalled SP3.Then all went smoothly, and when finished,then I installed SP3 again.
If by chance you have SP3,may be worth remembering. :thumbsup:

Hi funnytim,

The posts seem to be saying:

1) Uninstall SP3
2) Uninstall IE7
3) Reinstall IE7
4) Reinstall SP3

That should remove the compatibility problem.

I'm a bit confused about step 3 though...how do I go about re-installing IE 7? Windows updates?


Thanks
