Help Please,

Occasionally while IE is opening a web page, a small message appears:

Microsoft Internet Explorer (followed below with a BIG Red X)

Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://news.yahoo.com/........(could be any site)

Operation aborted

Click: OK

Any thoughts on how to correct this occasional problem as the laptop (HP Pavilion dv 1000) never had did this before?

Many thanks in advance,
q11

Hi q11,

Can you take a screen shot the next time it happens and post it here so that we may see what it looks like. :)

There should be a button on your keyboard that says prt scrn or print screen. When you need to hit that button and then open microsoft paint and hit edit, paste and then save it to your desktop. Then go to http://imageshack.us and upload it then using the direct link copy and paste it into your next reply put the tags

computerxpds,

Thanks, I will proceed with your instructions. Presently, away from my laptop for approx. 4 hrs.

Any other ideas for me to try to fix the problem just in case?

Much appreciation,

I do have a few more questions for you such as what anti virus do you use and when was your last scan, also do you have a firewall? Do you have automatic updates turned on?

computerxpds,

The laptop runs Avast! anti virus and is auto updated. Plus, I do perform anti virus scan occasionally with SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. So far NO virus or spy/malware infection.

thanks,

All Helpers:

Please refer to the above attachment as this is exactly what is occurring.


Have you ever seen this dialog while surfing the web in Internet Explorer?



You browse to your favorite news site. The content starts loading, you've already started reading the headline, and then it happens. Those of you familiar with the operation aborted dialog know that it spells sudden doom for the website you're currently viewing. Unsuspecting users have no idea what it means and simply click 'OK' and then watch in horror as the web page they were just reading disappears; only to be replaced by an navigation error screen. More savvy users move the dialog out of the way so that they can finish reading what was visible before they too accept the inevitable...

There's your problem. You need to upgrade to IE 7 or 8. IE6 is obsolete and many sites have stopped supporting it.

Also, make sure you have the current version of Java installed on your computer.

Hope this helps.
