Here's my situation;
When I try to open IE 7 a blank page opens for a few seconds then closes, then 'sometimes' an error report,
When I start AT&T/Yahoo! it opens fine and I can browse but I can't download anything, also 'internet options' under the Tool tab will not open,
FireFox however, seems to run & download just fine.
Going to internet options in control panel yields the same thing, Flash but won't open.
Tried to update to IE 8 RC-1, had conflicts with desk top images (it enlarged them), Uninstalled.
Downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware, highjackthis, registry mechanic, still running
Tried and failed;
AT&T help & support, both desk top and phone,
Uninstall/re-install IE 7, (twice)
System restore, 3 different points with-in weeks of each other, Result; 'system restore can not restore to that point, try another...'
Malwarebytes, No malware found
Reload registry, Run; c:reregisterie.cmd
sfc /scannow ; Although it seemed to load some files from the XP disc it did not solve the prob.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks for reading!
Try updating to ie 8 or stick to ff
I think updating to 8 is what got me in this situation in the first place.
I'm sticking with the Fox for now But the underline problem is that I can't get into the 'Internet Options' folder and I can't use system restore!
I've not had any probs with ie 8 although I don't use it to much
Have you tried loading internet options from control panel and resetting your security to the default levels, clearing cookies and history, too?
I can not get into 'Internet Options'!
Browser tool bar,
Control panel, &
Sounds like a bad installation . Have you tried reinstalling it
I un-installed / re-installed IE 7 three time now.
Yep. he said he'd done that.
Have you tried Internet options while in safe mode?
You could also try a "repair" option by booting with your Windoze CD and selecting repair instead of new install. Assuming, that is, that you have a genuine Windoze CD and not one of those silly "recovery CDs" that mfgs like to foist upon unsuspecting suck....,er, customers.
Yes, I have the genuine XP CD.
I'll post my findings when availble.
