Hello,

I have an issue, which has bothered me for awhile now...
I am using firefox, but whenever I try to run I.E, it just shows a blank white screen. I think I am missing a registery file/dll or something...
I remember trying to delete I.E along time ago, then reinstalled it..it never has worked the same since.

I did a reset, still no luck. I tried downloading I.E, but it says set up can not continue because there is a newer I.E installed already.

I uninstalled I.E, then I reinstalled it.
Still I have the problem, the pages are white. It never loads pages.

Side note: Service Pack 2 never can install. I get a "Explorer can not access the path or you do not have permission." something along those lines...this issue has been on this computer for awhile now. Is this causing all the issues?

Start > Programs > Internet Explorer > Right-click and choose 'Run As' > Select the following user 'Administrator profile' in the window that appears' > Ok.

Let us know if this makes any difference.

What Security level do you have Internet Explorer set to?

You can find these and other settings when internet explorer is opened, look for tools, then internet options, then security.

Check the level for internet. You might have those levels set to high. You can try resetting the zone to its default setting using the button displayed in this zone box.

Good luck.

I would, but I do not have the Vista Cd. Or any product key.

EDIT: The OS came installed when I bought the computer...I looked up a way to recovery from the boot up, but I do not have the HDD Recovery Option listed....

I have a Toshiba L305D with Vista 32 Home Prem.

I just tried that, still no luck...I really hoped it didn't come down to me reinstalling.

You do have a Restore Partition contact Toshiba for assistance in using it.
