One of my fave sites is goal.com

Out of nowhere, when I try to read a story I get a message saying something like "Internet explorer can't opne site....operation aborted"

If anyone can help me with the dilemma, it will be appreciated!

Well, it's a matter of preferences, but by double checking same site with Firefox we'll see, if this is IE problem, or something else.

I t worked fine with Firefox, however, I usually get online from my AOL icon ( since 90's ) amd it seems to use IE, therefore, I would love to get it nornal again.

Try uninstalling your AOL software...then reinstall same.

I believe (it's been a long time) that AOL uses their "branded" version of IE, which is included in the software they ask users to install.

Exactly. See, if regular IE (not through AOL) has same problem.

Close IE.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same thing?

Hi! I go there and it told me tha t its running with no add ons, however, I am not sure what else I can do there. There is no icon where I can web surf and test it. Please tell me what to do? I did download service pack 3.......which didn't change anything.

What do you mean? There is no address bar, where you can type in "goal.com"?

Hi!

Now I know what you meant! I typed in gola.com at top and had no ssue opening pages within the site at all. Ironically, I checked it out at work and did have ONE page with same message!

I suppose that I will use the "shortcut" you just showed me till, hopefully, it goes away!

I am opent o suggestions and I've even "discovered" firefox!

Here is a question...why does AOL. when I start it from desktop icon, necessarily use IE? No biggies, I am just curious!

You most likely don't have to do this.
Open IE normally, go Tools>Internet options>Advanced tab and click "Reset" button.
Restart IE and you should be able to access the site in question.
It looks like some add-on has been playing games with you.

why does AOL. when I start it from desktop icon, necessarily use IE?

AOL decided to build their browser based on IE. That's why.

In any case, you'll be happy with FF.

Most of the time when I go to a website through AOL, it either doesn't load or takes forever and then it crashes my AOL. Because of that I, long ago, got in the habit of signing on to AOL for mail and such, leaving it open and connected, but doing all my webbrowsing in the regular IE program installed with Windows. Makes for a lot less frustrating internet experience.
