IE8 Not displaying some web pages

    Hi All,

    NOTE:- I have already posted this problem in Microsoft Answers looking for
    help but as yet have not received any replies.

    I'm having trouble accessing additional pages, such as PDF, from web sites.
    All I get is the infamous 'Internet Explorer cannot display the web page'.
    Running the diagnostics does not give any answers, most frustrating.

    I can run IE8 on an old computer running Windows XP and all is fine, so it's
    not the web site that's giving me grief. My current computer is an Acer
    running Windows 7 upgrade over Vista.

    I have cleared my cache, checked that my SSL & TLS are checked, removed and
    reinstalled IE8 using Control Panel, still no luck. I have gone through all
    the various problem solving methods offered with no solution, save having to
    do a total system rebuild, something I'm reluctant to do right now, I'm at a
    total loss as to what to do next so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Best Rgds,
    Pom Dave

    p.s. It's not a modem problem because it is a wireless type and my old XP
    computer runs remotely from this.

    Hi,
    Regarding PDF files:
    First open Adobe Reader> Help> Check for updates. Install the update , if
    available.

    Then, Adobe Reader> Edit> Preferences> Internet> uncheck "Display PDF in
    browser." PDF files will open Adobe Reader, bypassing Internet Explorer.

    Also, from Adobe Reader> Help, there's a repair option you can use if
    previous steps don't resolve the issue.

    Are other file types involved?

    Hi Don,

    That did the trick, it may not be the correct way, but it works just the same.

    Thanks again
