Internet Explorer does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • Internet Explorer does not work. In contrast, the internet connection is working properly. I am currently browsing with Shiretoko, a beta version of Mozilla Firefox and it works fine. I believe that its behavior it's very strange, when I diagnose connection problems, windows network diagnostics says: "troubleshooting could not identify the problem".
    Does anyone helps me with this problem of Internet Explorer?

  • Hi,

    Need some more information. When you say its not working properly what do you mean?

    -Does it not open up any web pages?
    -Does it freeze or crash? Is there a error message associated with this?
    -Does IE even open at all?

  • I mean that it does not open up any web pages.
    When I open internet explorer a window appears with the following message:
    "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage", next to a globe marked with a cross and bellow:
    "What you can try:
    Diagnose Connection Problems"
    The results of Windows Network Diagnostics are:
    "Troubleshooting could not identify the problem"
    In the detailed information, troubleshooting report says:
    "No issues detected", in contrast i can't open up any web page

    Wow, this should be on the front page of solutions to this bug.
    I'm typing this with Firefox because of IE8's inability to connect ANYWHERE on the web.
    It's even stranger that if you create and log in as another user IE8 works fine.

    I'm sure glad I came across this post,
    Thanks demchinsky,

    Peter
