This tab has been recovered.in IE8

    Question

  • "This tab has been recovered.

    A problem with this web page caused Internet Explorer to close and reopen the tab."


    I keep getting this message when I try to access the Yahoo mail site and other sites. The first time I installed Windows 7 I didn't have this problem but since then I was having some problems with Windows 7 so I decided to reinstall it and since I did this I have not been able to access the Yahoo mail and a few other sites. With other sites I never have problems any one know why now I'm having this problem now and wasn't before and how to resolve it. After IE8 reopens the tab about three times the message below is what I end up with.  Installed Firefox to see if I had the same problem and I don't Firefox works fine

    =============================

    1. Please open Internet Explorer, click "Tools", and click "Internet Options".

    2. Switch to the "Advanced" tab.

    3. Refer to "Reset Internet Explorer Settings" section, and click "Reset".

    4. Click "Close" when the resetting process is complete.

    5. Close Internet Explorer and restart it.

     

    Suggestion 2: Run IE without Add-ons

    =============================

    1. Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

    2. Visit website in this IE.

     

    Does it work?

     

    Hope it helps.

    Hi,

     

    Does it work in Compatibility View?

  • Hello,

    Doesnt work in compatiblility mode neither.

    The longer I use Windows 7 the worse it seem to get. The Windows defender is off and I can't get it to turn on, the last thing that started today is now my Yahoo Messenger won't work it keeps stopping.


    Yahoo! Messenger has stopped working

    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
    Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is availabe


    I am getting frustated and thinking of just giving up Windows 7

    Hi dsalsa,

     

    Thank you for your update. I understand that the issue still persists after taking my suggestion. And other issues were encountered now. Please understand that the current Windows 7 version is beta, we released it just for improving it and ensure our customers get a better Windows in further. Thank you for your understanding.

     

    Given the current situation, I suspect a software conflict cause the problem. Could you please take a Clean Boot to narrow down the issue?

     

    For your convenience:

    Clean Boot

    ===========================

    1. Click Start, type MSCONFIG in the Search Bar and Press Enter to start the System Configuration Utility.

    2. Click the Services tab, check the Hide All Microsoft Services box and click Disable All (if it is not gray).

    3. Click the Startup tab, click Disable All and click OK.

    4. Restart the computer and test the issue.

     

    Please monitor the system in the Clean Boot environment. If the problem does not occur, it indicates that the problem is related to one application or service we have disabled. You may use the MSCONFIG tool again to re-enable the disabled item one by one to narrow down the problem.

     

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi Robinson,

    Unfortunatelly the issue still persists after taking your suggestion. Sorry my mistake the other issues I encountered are not new. The strange thing is that this is the second time I have installed Windows 7 on my machine and the first time I had no problems browsing any web pages or with Windows Defender. My Yahoo Messenger seems to be working again with the services disable and abled. The reason I installed Windows 7 a second time is because I started to mess with some of the windows files because I was not able and still not able to Update Windows but that is another issues because I think it has to do with my internet connection because I wasn't able to update Windows Defender etiher when it was working and neither was I able and still not able to register my copy of Window 7 (still have about 8 days to go) even though I am able to browse the internet with no problem except for some pages the last one being "bytemobile.com" whitch I saw while I was disabling my devices. I also have no problem downloading files or updating my AVG antivirus. I wasn't able to register my copy of FSX either. On the other side on XP I have no problems registering or upgrading any programs so I'm not really sure what is going on. One last thing is that something seems to be running in the background when my computer is idle because it always crashes giving me a blue screen and rebooting whitch fails until I reboot under XP and run the scan disk on the partition I have Windows 7 on.

    I know this is to long and I have so many issues maybe I should just forget about running this beta version or another option I have been thinking about is maybe just starting from scracth and slowly install my software one at a time about one a day make sure I have not issues with that particular software. But then again wouldn't disabling all my services be about the same without having to start from scratch?

  • Hi I am also having this same problem, but only with 2 websites, which is EXTREMELY annoying as I am now unable to use them at all.  It keeps popping up, then re-loading, and slowing down the whole computer.  There is nothing I can do to stop it, did the steps you said (did the no-add on's thing, and also reset the IE settings to default).
    Then it pops up as "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."
    WELL IT IS INCONVENIENT COZ I CAN'T GET IT TO WORK, MICROSOFT!!!!  Hehehhee
    can you please tell me some other fixes I can try????

  • I am having the same issue altho it is blocking my main work/life email.  i am so frustrated, I have even logged into safari and still it blocks it.  if I use any other computer I access my site fine.  Help I am not running two computers. 
    Sunday, August 16, 2009 4:03 PM
  • I am also consistently having the same (or very similar) issue.

    I am using Windows XP with IE8.

    Whenever I close a Tab in IE8, then IE8 tries to reload it again, with the message "This tab has been recovered". If I try to close it a couple of times, it comes up with an error page "Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It appears that the website continues to have a problem"

    If I then try to close that Tab, it still re-opens the page woith the same message.

    If I try and close IE8 (i.e. file Exit), then it will not close. Instead it just re-opens the tabs.

    This behaviour started about a week ago - and may have followed an update (can't be certain).  However, it CONSISTENTLY behaves in this way.  The only way to close IE8 now is via Task Manager.

    Honestly, my good friends at Microsoft, I DO sometimes want to close tabs or the whole of IE8 - please let me :-).


    Does anyone know what is causing this behaviour? . . and how to resolve it?

    Sunday, August 23, 2009 9:04 PM
  • Suggestion 1 completely solved the problem. 
    No ugly messege "This tab has been recovered" any more.
    You are real professional!
    Thank you very much
    Wednesday, September 09, 2009 4:58 PM
  • I've been having this problem for some time now and I've tried a variety of methods to resolve it. However, i'm still having the same problems.
    I have tried suggestions 1 and 2 from Robinson Zhang and they haven't worked either.
    Running without Add-ons prevents the tab being recovered but I am unable to view flashplayer items and of course you cannot download when running without add-ons.
    Unfortunately, the only web page I am bothered about that is affected by this problem is one that I usually use on a regular basis (the iplayer on the bbc website).
    I have also run malware virus checker and mcafee virus scans to see if I can clear any viruses that could be causing the problems, but these have not made any difference.

    If anybody can help I'd very much appreciate it.

  • Try going into safe mode and running a full system scan. Worked for me! Adware was the problem.
    Saturday, December 12, 2009 1:01 AM
  • Hi Robinson,
    Your advice with MSConfig was  right.
    I start to experiment with some options and have found that solution is:
    1. Click Start, type MSCONFIG in the Search Bar and Press Enter to start the System Configuration Utility.
    2. Click the Startup tab
    3. In list of programs find : vegas    (Command rundll32.exe C:\Windows system 32) and disable i
    I suppose that it is "virus"

    Thank you
    Saturday, December 12, 2009 8:05 PM
  • Eventually found problem was Google tools like "Spell" + "Translate". All disable those buttons then never happened again since.

    Not Virus at all
    Sunday, December 13, 2009 8:53 AM
  • Okay! This is a solution to this:

    Go to the start menu and click on run. In the text box type msconfig.
    Go to startup.
    Uncheck losalamos
    It will ask you to restart your computer.
    After this, it should work as it did for me.
    You can also get rid of this manually using regedit. HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run.

    I found that adobe flash player and microsoft silverlight were not compatible, so I disabled the silverlight add-on.
    Simple as that.

  • It is january 2010 and I am having the same problem described in these many posts.  Ie 8 keeps failing because it has "a problem with this web page causes internet explorer to close and reopen the tab" . Happens on everything other than MSN home Page.  I have tried all suggestions and continue to have the problem. Posting from a second computer. Running IE 8 with windows XP.

    Thanks for the advice/response but still same problem.  Wondering if reinstalling ie would help.

  • Hello,

    I have just read all these posts, and am not sure which solution to try.  I have the exact same problem, but it only occurs when I try to download Adobe Flashplayer 10.  About a month ago, whenever I tried to run something requiring Flashplayer, such as a Youtube video, I would get this message:

    "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Macromedia's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player."

    I've made sure that JavaScript is enabled.  I've uninstalled whatever flash player was on my computer, following Adobe instructions, and I've tried to install Flash Player 10, but each time, I get the message:

    "a problem with this webpage caused Internet Explorer to close and reopen..."

    I'm running IE8.  I've also reset  all Internet Explorer settings back to original default condition.

    Any help you can provide will be appreciated.  I can't run anything requiring Flash Player.  Before this all started, I had no problem.  I'm wondering if FlashPlayer 10 is a new version and causing me some conflict.

    thank you!

    Friday, January 22, 2010 4:29 PM
  • This is in follow-up to the above.  I notice also that I have Silverlight 2.0(2) on my desktop.  Someone else mentioned it as a conflict above.  Could that be a cause of my problems?
    Friday, January 22, 2010 5:12 PM
  • I have tried all the suggestions above and it has not solved the problem. I even bought a registry cleaner and that didn't help.  I have Vista Home & IE8.  Is there a way to remove IE8 and go back to IE7?
    Sunday, January 24, 2010 2:58 PM
  • I finally semi-solved my problem!  The other day, I uninstalled Silverlight (don't even know how I got it) - but that made no difference.  Today I was using Google Chrome as web browser rather than IE8, and I was able to download Flashplayer no problem.  Now, I can view videos, etc. with no error messages, but still cannot view videos in IE8 (youtube, for example) - still getting same message that I need to download updated version of Flashplayer, although I already have.

    I use Google Chrome for my gmail account.  I have two gmail accounts, and gmail won't let me have them both open simultaneously unless I'm logged into them in two different browsers, so I use IE8 and Google Chrome, but I don't like to use Google Chrome for a lot of other things, because it doesn't work with McAfee Site Advisor.

    Saturday, February 20, 2010 3:43 PM
  • Probably u have visited some site which asked u to download some plugin to play some video.

    1. First check ur startup files. 
    2. For this go to Start > Run  and type msconfig.
    3. Go to Startup tab and check for the Startup item.
    4. You will find some unusual names in column 'Startup Item' like TOY5KNQ8OC and Canaveral etc.
    5. Uncheck them and note down their path (you may find complete path in the column name 'Command').
    6.  Delete these files from that directory by rebooting the PC in Safe Mode.

    Bye

  • Possible Solution to "this tab has been recovered ie8 xp"

    First open internet explorer, click on "Tools" them "Windows Updates" install updates if available. (is important to go to Microsoft web site form here, so some services get enable)

    After this is complete: Open internet explorer, click on "Tools" them click on "Compatibility View Settings". Add a couple of sites, and mark "display all websites in compatibility view"

    and the issue should be solved.

     

    Good luck.

    Thanks, Robinson Zhang!  Your Suggestion # 1 worked for me!  I suspected that my problem was being caused by the Limewire Toolbar which I accidently installed as an option along with Limewire.  Resetting as you suggested removed the Limewire toolbar without me having to uninstall Limewire (which then I would have had to re-install it without the toolbar option).  Thanks again!

  • I only started having this problem today, whenever I try to go to Youtube's page, which worked fine on IE8 before, it tries to recover the tab, and whenever I go to a page I found on a search from Google it "recovers" that tab too. I found the best way of stopping it from recovering so far is by hitting the "Stop" button, however that's very annoying. I'm using an old XP, and I honestly hate this "Tab Recovery" thing. Is there any way to disable it?

  • If anybody still having the problem this might be a solution. After I have formatted and reinstalled all my notebook I have realized that I still have the problem. so I went step by step. So, if you have changed your host file in Windows/drivers/etc, just find the original host file and put it there deleting the changed one. I hope this works for you too.

  • Guys.. Its default recovery error. Its like just a default error page.  There can be more than one reason for the same, like certificate error etc. Generally, installing JRE(Java runtime envirionment - can be downloaded from sun) solves the problem in most of the cases.

    My team members had the same problem, when they wer given new PC with 4GB ram & i5 and fresh installation. Everyone had the same problem visting any site that was JRE enabled.

  • About two weeks ago when trying to access my Yahoo mail, I got the same message many others who have posted on this thread received ==  "A problem with this web page caused Internet Explorer to close and reopen the tab."  This was soon followed by "We were unable to return you to yahoo.com.  Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It continues to have a problem."  I made numerous attempts on my own to resolve this problem with no success.  Then when searching for outside help, I found this thread, and discovered that many others had encountered the same problem.  I then went thru the many suggested solutions on this thread, and finally found that the one posted by salasguy in "Suggestion 1: Reset Internet Explorer Settings" seems to have solved my problem.  It was stated in one of the postings here that there are possibly many reasons  which could cause this same problem.  That is possibly true.  I do not know what was solved by the resetting internet explorer settings.  I did not intentionally change any settings on my own, I just started seeing this problem.  I suspect it was a Microsoft Update that did it.  I had a problem in the recent past that was caused by such an update -  you may remember that one, since it caused problems world wide.  I wish Microsoft would do  better at testing their updates before releasing them on the public.

  • Hi All,

     

    This is more likelely to be a problem with one of your support programs, for example Adobe Flash Player or maybe Java.

    If you've all tried the methods of resetting your IE state, uninstalling and reinstalling Explorer 8 then you must have a problem with Flash etc. usual tell tale, does google work but msn doesn't? if so then it's more likely Adobe Flash.

    I would strongly recommend uninstalling these throught the add/remove programs module and reinstalling the later versions direct from the authors website.

    This should do the trick, and I'm suprised by the length of this thread for such a simple problem!!

  • I had the problem while trying to download a keygen for realplayer sp. Suddenly as i opened it as a keygen the problem of the tab has been recovered message and the website you are trying to view has a problem and internet explorer needs to close and reopen the tab message was displayed in loop.

    even my multi yahoo messenger didnot displayed any text while i was trying to send a message or received any message despite of me being able to see the friend list.

    What I did was i checked up my start up services and there i found NICE WARE being checked. I unched it. uninstalled yahoo messenger. restarted my computer. Now things started fine. Internet explorer IE 8 worked well.

  • Hello,  I read through the posts and I must tell you that since I upgrated adobe flash player i've been experiencing the same problem.  I followed all your directions and it didn't correct the problem either.  I'm suspecting it's an adobe plug-in error, it occurs mostly when graphics or videos are trying to display.  Any thoughts?
    Wednesday, February 02, 2011 10:43 PM
  • I thought I would post this in case anyone else arrives here after experiencing this same problem when trying to install software from Adobe.com (Flash, Reader, etc).  In my case, the problem was that a security setting in Internet Explorer was blocking the Adobe download manager from accessing a particular memory location.  This resulted in Internet Explorer attempting to reload the tab, and eventually displaying the message that it was unable to reload the tab.  Fixing the problem is quite simple.  Go to Tools->Internet Options->Advanced, and under "Security", uncheck "Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks".  With this feature off, the Adobe download manager is able to function properly and install the software.  This may work in other cases as well.  Only suggestion I would make is to be sure and turn this security feature back on once you are finished running whatever it is that was causing the problem.  Also, making sure you have an active antivirus protection running (such as AVG) wile the security feature is turned off might be a good idea.

  •  Go to Tools->Internet Options->Advanced, and under "Security", uncheck "Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks". Disabling this is solving the issue, but once i switch it back to enable mode, its gone again.

    What is this feature , is it safe to leave it disabled.

    After trying all the suggested solution what was found to work

    Copy all the text between the "***" into Notepad, save it to a file named  IEReg.bat (possibly IEReg.cmd)

    run this file in safe mode by clicking on it

    This is a solution for a different error, but have found the error accompanies this same problem

  • I get this message occasionally with Netflix.

    After trying your second suggestion(IE without addons), Netflix told me I needed Silverlight. So I took a chance and downloaded and reinstalled Silverlight and now my Netflix is loading. Not sure if it is a permanent fix but it's working for now at least. I'm guessing my Silverlight was corrupt or out of date.

    Suggestion 3: Try to use the compatibility mode.

    Suggestion 4: Click Tools>Options>Advance>disable third party browser extension.

    Suggestion 5: Try a Clean Boot

    1. Click Start, type MSCONFIG in the Search Bar and Press Enter to start the System Configuration Utility.

    2. Click the Services tab, check the Hide All Microsoft Services box and click Disable All (if it is not gray).

    3. Click the Startup tab, click Disable All and click OK.

    4. Restart the computer and test the issue.

    Please monitor the system in the Clean Boot environment. If the problem does not occur, it indicates that the problem is related to one application or service we have disabled. You may use the MSCONFIG tool again to re-enable the disabled item one by one to narrow down the problem.

  • The problem has to do with older java versions NOT compatible with internet explorer 9 or 8. Java is a separate program that runs on top of internet explorer. Java needs to "test" or co-operate with microsoft before making software that cause problems. Half baked software. ALSO, a lot of ADVICE is BAD advice!!! A lot of people should NOT be giving technical support advice if you don't know what you are doing!!! Some of the replies or solutions don't WORK! like UNINSTALLING internet explorere or add-on!!!! This is the easy SOLUTION! uninstall all old java update versions in remove programs you have to remove all java versions and install right version install newer version at the java.com http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2506617 Internet Explorer 9 may stop working when you visit a website that requires the Java Plug-in if you have Java Version 6 Update 22 or Java Version 6 Update 23 installed. When this problem occurs, you may receive an error message that resembles the following in the notification bar at the bottom of the Internet Explorer page: "A problem with this webpage caused Internet Explorer to close and reopen the tab. Additionally, you are not returned to the webpage, and Internet Explorer displays the following message on the page: We were unable to return you to your webpage.

Compatibility View forces Internet Explorer to render the webpage in the Internet Explorer 8 document mode, which does not contain the Internet Explorer 9 changes to the rendering engine. $$$$The compatiblity view temporary solution doesn't work either. To add a website to Compatibility View when you are unable to visit that website, follow these steps: 1.Start Internet Explorer. 2.Press the Alt key on the keyboard to access the menu. 3.Click Tools, and then click Compatibility View Settings. 4.Type the address of the website in the Add this website text box. 5.Click Add to add the site to the Compatibility View list, and then close the Compatibility View Settings window. 6.Visit the website again to see whether the issue is resolved.

  • @babwatch7 --- I'm assuming just a JAVA update didn't fix everyone's problem, but coupled with the Compatibility View should have. Everyone's issue is different technically(browser, version of IE and/or Windows, etc). BTW, updating my version of java didn't work.

    @forum -- My situation is specifically IE8 (new install from windows update) on Win XP. With or without add-ons, I was still getting a particular page crashing 9 out of 10 times, but most of my other browsing was fine.  I've tried ALL SUGGESTIONS in this thread and none have worked as a whole. Resetting IE, running no add-ons, removing add-ons, updating java, windows updates ... and then the winner. The fix for me was "Compatibility Mode" + JAVA update. Again, for my issue specifically. At least Microsoft created a safety net for emulating a stable/base/working/whatever-you-wanna-call-it version so that most of the compatibility issues in IE8 can be corrected.

    What is the solution, Dorothy? You say you tried the correct solution, but you do not say what it is. But, like so many others in this thread, this too is a problem that has vexed me, and I have tried all of the solutions offered in this thread, and none of them have worked! Let's recap just a few...

    Solution: Restore Interet Explorer settings.
    Results: Didn't work.

    Solution: Run Internet Explorer without add-ons.
    Results: Didn't work.

    Solution: Start > Run > MSCONFIG > Disable this, that, whatever.
    Results: Didn't work.

    Solution: Use Compatibility View
    Results: What in the world does Compatibility View do anyway? Either wait, didn't work.

    Solution: Check to see if certain programs are not compatible with each other.
    Results: I don't what I could possibly have that isn't compatible with other programs, didn't work.

    Solution: Update Java.
    Results: Turned out to be only a temporary fix, the problem resumed after I had shut down my computer for the night and rebooted the next morning.

    Someone mentioned in this thread it could be Adware or something: I've run Spybot - Search & Destroy and came up clean, and right now I'm running Malwarebytes' Antimalware, and so far it's turning up clean as well.

    This problem appears to be even bigger than any of you guys realize, because it's not just affecting Internet Explorer, it's also affecting Firefox and Chrome as well... in fact, it affects them even worse, whereas the problem in IE is the senseless refreshing of the page/tab until you get the "Website Restore Error", both Firefox and Chrome simply crash altogether and close.

    So again, I ask, what IS this "correct" solution? I'm losing my mind here!

    Changing jQuery to load locally didn't quite do it for me, but then I switched from jQuery 1.6.2 to 1.5.1 and that fixed the problem for me! So I'm using jQuery 1.5.1 and loading it locally. (I haven't fully investigated which versions work and which don't - that's just what I tried.) I hope this will help others.

  • I tried every solution on this page and only 1 has worked for me.

    Go to control panel, Internet options. (normally you could do this within IE but since it crashes you can’t).

    Then click on the Advanced tab, and under Accelerated Graphics, check the box next to “Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering”. In other words, turn off hardware acceleration.

    Good Luck =)

  • At some point in time, I started to get this issue:

    I am using IE 8.0.6001.18702 on Windows XP SP3 and kept getting booted out of the loading of Windows Update.  It would close / re-open the tab and print "This tab has been recovered in IE8".

    My solution was to go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Browsing

    Once there, uncheck "Automatically reocver from page layout errors with Compatability View"

    After doing this, I was able to access Windows Update once again!  Hope this helps someone

  • I searched and searched for a fix for the same problem... it was driving me crazy. I couldn't get on the internet without running into this same message. I finally saw where someone suggested that you use a different browser than IE such as FIREFOX. I deleted Internet Explorer and installed FIREFOX. For the first time in months of trying all sorts of supposed fixes I am able to use the internet without those annoying "this tab has been recovered" or "a problem with this webpage has caused"... etc

    It worked for me!!

  • The way to fix this issues is re installing the service pack... If it's win xp install service pack 3. I ran in to this issue on a windows xp client.

  • I work in IT and this will drive you crazy, I have solved this problem on some end user pc's by having them uninstall and re-install Microsoft Silverlight, if you have trouble uninstalling or it does not work try this tool, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2608523 and if that fails try the fix it from here as well http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2438651 (this one will remove almost anything you choose through the Registry automatically)  If this fails you need to rebuild the Windows profile, at home, just create a new admin user in control panel and copy over your data, on a domain you have to login to another admin account, delete the profile list reg key at:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList (look at the ProfileImagePath to tell which is which) then rename the user profile folder in C:\Users to (userid).old then have them login again to rebuild the profile and then copy data (although if you are on a domain you probably already know this) you can do this at home as well, but it is easier to create a new user in control panel, because you don't have to touch the Registry. PS. Instructions for win 7 only xp is very similar but has a few small differences. Windows Profile rebuilds are a last resort (because you have to copy all your user data over) but it is usually easier than re-installing windows (because you are just coping things from say, you old documents folder to your new one) and it will fix a LARGE amount of strange problems that you cannot identify the root cause.

    Hope this Helps anyone in the future!

  • In my end user's case with a Win7 setup, SFC /scannow found corrupt S files it said it couldn't fix

    We ended up with a disk wipe.

    Will be running Dell Hardware diags from the boot menu to make sure a hard disk problem didn't cause the OS corruption.
