Hey guys. I didn't know where else to post this, just hoping someone can help me out here. Whenever I go to sites like xboxaddict.com, ign.com, etc, I keep getting an error message saying "Internet explorer cannot open http://blah.com". (http://blah.com) Also, for sites like gamespot.com, the screenshots and stuff only show up as red x's on this computer but from my friend's houses they come up perfectly. What's up?

I've downloaded every form of flash player I know of. I don't understand why it would give me an error 75% of the time and the other 25% it works fine.

nah i think its your temp internet files and cookies !!

nothing to do with explorer directly...

when a webpage loads up..... it tries to look for pics and pages that are already in your temp files....

if the cookie tells the explorer that it has file X in its temp folder... and its really not there.... it cant display it...

try clearing ALL your cookies and ALL temp internet files !!

However... it could be just you ISP... trying to filter or block certain pics from the web...

remote linking to certain pics may cause problems with certain ISP's..

for example... some peoples sigs I can see at work.. but whenI get home I cant see em !!!... different ISP's !! both cable internet !!

I clear out my temp files and cookies often. It's not that. Also, this problem has only surfaced fairly recently. I have been using earthlink for well over a year.

And freaky, yes, I have all the updates.

I don't think so. I have both ad aware 6 and avg anti virus on this computer (I have mcafee as well but that is a piece of crap). I recently had a trojan on this computer but that happened about a week ago and these problems were occuring long before then. But all spyware and stuff is gone.

the only way to prove that it is not a software problem is....

format your hard drive and start from scratch !!

but i guess thats a little drastic !!

I've had to do that a few times... annoying but it solved all my issues !!

It's been happening for roughly 2 or 3 months. About a week ago I reinstalled windows and internet explorer but to no avail. Nothing helps.

hey man i think i know what your problem is. I had the same problem for quite a while and it took me a year to figure it out. All those sites use java applets (im not exactly sure what that means but they do). I'm guessing you have a firewall such as Norton firewall. The only fix around this is to do the following before you go to the site. (it is very important that you do this before you go on the site) First delete the internet explorer cache and then disable the firewall. Then you can go to the website and the pics should show up. Once you are done, be sure to re-enable the firewall. I know this is a pain but its the only work around i have found so far. Hope this helps you out.

and you've done spyware and virus checks? a virus could go undected


try this first.. go start--> run ---> msconfig--> startup tab ---> use this list to disable the unecessary items: http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startups_all.zip ... click apply, close, and restart....

then if that doen'st work IE is a windows compontent and it might be damaged... go start>run>cmd>chkdsk, and if you need to chkdsk /r


try that and tell me how it works

No, it's not because of a firewall. I have one on now because of a hacker problem, but I didn't before and it was still happening.

No, it's not spyware. And I have two antivirus programs on here, I recently removed a lot that a hacker put onto my pc, but my pc is clean.
