Internet Explorer 10 stopped working in Windows 7 Home Premium RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My computer had IE9. For two years it tried to auto update service pack 1. Finally I burned it to disc, installed SP1 then downloaded IE10. It starts to work fine but updates (perhaps) have made my old 'ice pen' 'not accessible'. OK.

    Now suddenly, I try to open IE 10 and it just buffers then says cannot load page - either UK MSN or I'm connected to the internet. Google Chrome works fine. I've re-installed IE10 to no avail. The icon is on my taskbar but IE does not appear in my program list. Its as if it is there but is not activated or a working program anymore.

    I was a vicitim of opening a message that forwarded itself to all my contacts with links a few months ago. It was a pain and it forwarded itself to my work email and now at work I keep getting 'quarantined spam' messages but my webroot protection finds no threats.

    I want IE back. It has all my favourites and I'm used to using it. But it looks like i'll have to use Google chrome instead.

    Can anyone help please?
