I have AOL on my laptop and have been experiencing problems with it lately, so I went on to Internet Explorer. I had version 6, and did not have any problems with it until I went on today. The only websites that will load are MSN and Microsoft. Whenever I type in a web address, the tab will display its name and then not go anywhere. I tried installing IE7 to see if that would fix the problem, but it didn't. I have a wireless connection, and that's running perfectly fine. Any idea what's going on?

Which version of Windows are you using?

IE 6 or IE 6, SP1? Open IE. Help. About IE.

Have you tried Firefox [ www.getfirefox.com ]?

Uninstall IE 7.

How do you know the wireless connection is perfectly fine? Are you sharing files or a printer?

start > run > eventvwr
Maximize the screen.
On the left, click on "system".
Do you see any errors or warnings on the right? Did they occur when you have tried to connect to a web site?

On the left click on "applications". Did they occur when you have tried to connect to a web site?

Problem solved. I went on today and my network told me that I had to validate. Everything's working fine now, though I am seriosuly considering thinking about Mozilla. Would IE still be on the computer if I got Firefox? Also, I got rid of IE7 after seeing all the complaints about it. Back to IE6.

You will need IE to access some web sites.

You can uninstall IE, but I don't recommend it. I have encountered problems with IE7, but it is much more secure than IE 6.

control panel [ with classic view ] > add / remove programs > "add / remove Windows components". There you can uncheck IE.
