Default Internet Explorer problems.....

I had some viruses that i got rid of (java.startpage and trojan.startpage) and got past that mess, however, now when i open IE and try to go to a site, i get this error: "Cannot find 'www.yahoo.com', make sure path of internet address is correct". I have ran adaware and spybot on the computer and norton and still nothing, not real sure what to do next, aside from IE the computer is great, any ideas...thanks much...

Are you sure your internet is ok? Can you not go only to yahoo, or all webpages in general?

Anything you type in the URL does not work, i get the same message any time i type and address in the URL. If I go to my history and follow a link that way, it works, but anything in the URL does not work....

tried uninstalling then reinstalling internet explorer?

check for dodgey programs in "tools" - "internet options" - "settings" - "view objects", right click and select properties, if it looks like it came from a nasty website or is some kind of advertising stuff, delete it (i know you all surf porn

hope that helps

To the first - check your internet connection - can you connect to the Internet through anything else? A Game maybe? If that doesn't work reinstalling Internet Explorer as ComputaFreak said seems like the best course. I doubt it is a Virus of Spyware because they will want you on the internet.

To the second; the same applies. Just reinstall Internet Explorer.

TO B FRANK AND TO THE POINT, I WOULD GET RID OF INTERNET EXPLORER, AND USE A DIFFERENT BROWSER.

I AM USING NETSCAPE 7 AND YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE. http://channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/default.jsp

HERE YOU CAN GET THE FULL VERSION AND DID I MENTION IT'S FREE

Haha! Again; Netscape is not free - it costs exactly one soul. Although; that is less than AOL which costs all your family's Souls and 20 a month.

No offence "Mr mixx" ... but Netscape, quite frankly, is shit. Worse than Internet Explorer imo ... Mozilla Firefox is far better than anything else out there, as well as Opera (regardless of Opera banner if you don't pay extra money). Both are very fast compared to Netscape. And lets face it - Netscape = AOL = almost vile.

Actually Netscape has had a lot more problems than IE and directly contributed to AOL time warners first loss since their merger due to massive redevelopement, (that was practically abndoned half way through)

The new version of MSN (and ultimatly IE) has promise of a POP-UP blocker, and there are pop-up blocking programs that are just as effective

Rocker beat me to it in saying that if you have to use an alternative browser then the most recomended has t obe Mozilla FireFox, Mozilla Seamonkey or Opera 7...

and they are all truley free, have less problems than netscape or IE and have proper popup blockers built in as standard, Opera even has an IRD client and firefox has spell checking modules

the last line of your post sums it up for me...

it's ok......everyone has there own freedom 2 use whatever suits them.

this is the third post I've read where you've told people about how crap IE is and that they should be using Netscape. perhaps you should listen to your own advice!

I know its free - wasn't me who got that idea.

Go on then; do those stats with usage of Netscape compared to usage of Internet Explorer.

Probably shouldn't put that case down - it may fall apart because its too feeble. Internet Explorer has a built in Pop-up stopper in SP2 and with MSN Toolbar there is an even better Pop-up Stopper.

Yep.

MSN Explorer is the best Internet Browser. It has everything; Pop-up Blocker, E-Mail Intergration, Search Intergration, Messenger Intergration, Parental Controls, Encarta, Groups, Chat, Entertainment, Built in Media Player. It is brilliant.

Haha! Or just use Internet Explorer? Again - less by percentage of users? I think not by far.

And again; yep.

Yeah; he should.
