IE stopped working: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
This is an interesting one. Internet Explorer has mysteriously stopped working on this machine. Firefox works great, but no Internet Explorer. The only reason that I even care is that Internet Explorer is better for streaming video.
I have 2 pcs connected via a router. The internet works great (both Firefox and IE) on the other pc. I ran through each and every option on this link:
Rebooting the modem seemed like a good idea, but no help. I did all of the stuff in msconfig, but no such luck. The only moderate amount of success that I did experience was this Internet Explorer did work when I rebooted, hit F8, and started in safe mode. I wasn't sure where to go after that.
Oh, I also totally uninstalled Internet Explorer and downloaded the latest version (8.0 beta 2). No luck.
Like I said, Firefox works great, so not the biggest deal, but there are certain applications where Internet Explorer is just a better application.
Thanks for the reply. I totally removed Internet Explorer and installed the new 8.0 Beta version 2. As a result, some of the options are different. When I go to Tools > Manage Add-ons >, there is not a "Enable or Disable Add-ons" option. I searched for anything like it, and under "Toolbars & Extensions", I have already disabled everything.
Arie's second suggestion: Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Reset. I did that a few times now, no such luck.
Remember: Firefox works great on this pc (it's what I'm typing on now). Gotta be something within Internet Explorer.
Thanks for the help! i do appreciate it. I am stumped.

I have the same exact problem. I have tried everything you guys have suggested, and no luck. I also have 2 pc's that have had IE go from working great to now not being able to load any websites.
1. I can access AOL, and I can use get on any website using AOL.
2. I installed FireFox, and like above I can use it with no problem.
3. I had Norton 360, plus Trend Micro installed, and I deleted both of them after all of this started, and I now have AVG8 installed, and that helped nothing at all, but lighten my wallet by 75.00. AVG 8 found no errors, go figure.
4. I did have OEM Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2 on the one computer, but a geek friend of mine said to delete this version and start over with XP Service Pack 1, which I did, but that did nothing to help either.
5. He said maybe it was AOL 9.1, and told me to unistall all of my AOL off of my system, and then reboot, which I did, and I still have the same problem.
6. I use IE7 everyday, well that is until now, and I need it to work because I design and maintain websites for many clients, so this is a pressing issue, and from what I am reading on this forum I'm not alone in this problem.
7. I have tried with no success also everything Arie, and PeteC have suggested above, but non of them have helped.
8. I also tried at one point to install IE 8 after I uninstalled IE7, and that didn't work, and now I cannot get IE7 to fully install without getting an error.
9. I have not made any changes on my 2nd computer, I have done all of these tests on my computer, and yes I have saved everything I can on backups that I can.
Any help or new idea's? Thanks, BTM PS, I cannot use spell check, since it is an IE tool, so I have mispelled words I am very sorry.
