Hi everyone!

I really hope someone out there can help me out with this, because itís driving me insane! I have searched and searched through endless forums and websites trying to find a solution, but I canít seem to find one.

Iíve got a brand new computer, running Vista Home Premium, and from the moment I got it I have been having problems with Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Live Messenger.

I can surf the net and chat on WLM at the same time for hours on end, but at random, I start to get ďInternet Explorer cannot display this pageĒ and at the exact same time, WLM disconnects. Itís not always the same websites that causes it, and it doesnít happen every time, like I said itís just really random.

I donít think itís an actual connection problem, because when it happens, AIM and other stuff, like Outlook, stay connected and my little wireless icon in the taskbar says I am connected as normal. It just seems that whatever is wrong just affects IE and WLM. The IE problem still occurs even when WLM isnít running, so I guess it canít be caused by a conflict of the two programs. Ohhhh I just donít know, itís doing my head in!!

Anyone got any ideas? :thumbsup:

Welcome to Bleeping Computer SLT7. :thumbsup:


Some general advise is to empty your existing IE Cache.

If that doesn't help, we may move your thread to the Windows Vista Forum, so members with more experience with this type of OS can help you out.

Hi TMacK,

Thanks for your reply. I have tried several things to try and resolve this, including clearing the IE cache, resetting IE settings, making sure updates are installed, reinstalled network adapter, updated network adapter drivers, run virus/spyware checks... God knows what else! Nothing has made any difference at all.

I should've guessed it'd be something to do with Vista! lol

:thumbsup:
