Whenever I open Internet Explorer it says that the Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. But I have my internet on and can use other browsers perfectly. This is disrupting a lot of programs such as Itunes, Windows Media Player. Can anyone help? I think it might be my firewall. :/

Stop using Internet Explorer. 
 
EDIT: If anyone else quotes this I will break them.

I don't use Internet Explorer. But I can't use the programs that require an internet connection. :/

If you got a piece of malware or something recently, it might have changed your proxy settings. Go to options -> connections -> lan settings, and make sure "use a proxy server for your lan" is unchecked.

also, stop using IE

I did that but it doesn't work. And I DO NOT use Internet Explorer. I have to fix it 'cause it's messing up my other programs.

I don't really know what the problem is, but can you set those other programs to use a different browser besides IE?

I like IE9, it's actually not a bad browser.

#18 Posted by MistaSparkle (2148 posts) -

Problem: Internet Explorer 
 
Solution: Stop using Internet Explorer 
 
Seriously though, try checking your computer for updates and also restart. I get this a lot and its always because I need to update.

I still don't see why his programs need Internet Explorer.

Is it still set as the default web browser? Try changing that.

Wrong. Firefox.

Try Ctrl+F5 on any site. I had this problem with IE6 sometimes. I hated IE6.

Alright when someone asks for help don't slack on them on the browser they are using. It's incredibly immature and helps no one.

Firstly what version of Internet Explorer are you using? Whiskey Media doesn't support IE6 for example. Secondly there are certain fonts and styles we use that aren't compatible with Internet Explorer.

Fun fact: Internet Explorer has decided to support h.264 so you can use HTML5 on Whiskey Media using IE. That's something Firefox still doesn't support.

This.....but he doesn't even use internet explore, it is just an important component for other programs as he explained....however people chose to ignore it and just kept posting "stop using IE" over and over like little children.

You mean the problem isn't that he's using Internet Explorer? It is, though.
#28 Posted by WEB_War4 (111 posts) -

Found this:

Open IE

Tools tab > Internet Options > restore Adanced Settings and Reset Internet Explorer settings.

Restart IE.

I use Internet Explorer. Except on GiantBomb, this site's broken.

Also, if you have a router, try plugging your internet directly into your computer and see if the problem persists. If it does, then its something on your computer, be it virus or improper settings.
 
If it works, then its a router setting thats the issue, you can always try saving the router settings and then restoring factory settings and see if that fixes anything.
 
Lemme know how that test goes and I can offer some more help based on the results.

@Video_Game_King: No, its not.....he stated that he doesn't use internet explore multiple times....Many programs depend on IE to function, and if IE is malfunctioning those programs won't work.....he wants to get IE working so he can use those programs....not to use IE as a web browser.

Come on guys this isn't GameFAQs and this isn't a joke/troll topic the guy has a real problem. It might be some sort of malware. Itunes shouldn't be affected by a problem with internet explorer. Have you had any virus problems lately?

Change your default browser so that programs don't open web pages with IE.
