Default Not computer literate/Acer Aspire 3680...

"Internet Explorer cannot display webpage",this is what I get when going to my Homepage after initial turn on (about 10 min) and 90% of my bookmarks.I must click on different bookmarks 3 to 4 times to connect.Does same on a lot of ads on top of page after I connect and am going thru mail.This all started about 2 months ago and is progressively getting worse.Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,

What OS are you running? Windows XP or Windows Vista? What version of IE do you have? IE6 or IE7? IE7 would be the only one available on Vista.

Cheers,
Mak

Hello,

Can you access the web for email and other things? Is it just IE that is causing you problems?

Cheers,
Mak

Hello,

That doesnt help. If the issue is isolated to IE you would be able to conenct with a Instant Messanger or EMail application. Without knowing if you can connect with Firefox or some other software we can not say if it is just a IE issue or not.

Cheers,
Mak

Hello,

I just needed to know if you could connect. Now that i see it is fully related to IE i can help you along.

Go into your Start Menu. Look for a option in there for Internet Explorer No Add-ons. See if IE works then. If So one of your add ons is corrupting IE. Which is not uncommon.

From here go Tools>Manage Add-ons. Disable them all. Now restart IE. It should start up normally now. From here enalbe your Add-ons 1 by 1 to see which one is the problem causer and then go back into the IE No Add-ons and remove it completely. This will allow you to use IE without any issues from now on.

Let me know how it works out.

Cheers,
Mak
