    Please help!

    I am having trouble with my IE 6 freezing up. I was told it may be broken.
    Can it be repaired? If so, how can I repair it? I am using 98se. When I go
    to some web pages, the page freezes up. Example: http://oyc.yale.edu

    TIA,

    Angel

    It may not be that simple but start with Repair.

    Control Panel
    -Add/Remove
    -Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 SP1 and Internet Tools
    -Add/Remove
    -Check "Repair Internet Explorer"
    -OK

    Thanks, Alan

    I did that and am still having trouble with the IE6. Can't access that
    website, http://oyc.yale.edu. Others too. That one I used to be able to
    access but can't anymore. I don't know if they did something to keep out the
    IE6. Maybe you can try it if you have access to IE6.If you can, I would
    appreciate it very much. I would like to know if it is my machine, The IE6
    freezes up on some of the sites.

    I just fired up a Win98se machine with IE6 SP1
    That site gives me a warning"
    "There are known issues related to the display of the Open Yale
    Courses website in Internet Explorer 6. We recommend using Firefox or
    upgrading your browser to the latest version to view Open Yale
    Courses. To continue using IE6, click OK"

    It does load OK but I haven't gone any further past the first page.
    (My old Win98 machine is a little underpowered at 64Mb RAM)

    Alan,

    You got further than I. All I got was a blank page. The page froze up. I
    used the 3 finger salute and it came up with that page (Not Responding). So
    I had to use "end task" Sometimes I even had to shut down the computer using
    the reset button because the end task did not work.Why am I not even getting
    what you do?

    I am using Maxthon 1.5.6 with IE6 and http://oyc.yale.edu/ doesn't work
    well here. The main text is missing and the YouTube and iTunes links are
    also missing. So there might not be anything wrong with your system.
    Just some web designers' feel that IE6 is obsolete and isn't worth
    supporting anymore I think is the big problem.

    And I ran IE7/8 for over a year. And both of them are so slow compared
    to IE6 it is unbelievable. And I also tested stopping all hotfixes and
    security updates on some test machines and I had very good luck running
    them this way. So I restored this machine back to factory state and
    don't plan on getting any updates for it ever!

    I also ran Windows 7 RC on three machines here for a year and that was
    just awful! As this machine alone went from 3% idle CPU usage to 23%
    idle usage and the CPU increased in temp by 20°F hotter just by idling.
    Worse, I used to run 100% of what I wanted to run. Under Windows 7 it
    dropped to 95%. Plus all of my high demanding PC games ran so much
    slower.

    If you want an install for IE6, you can get one here.

    So bottom line, newer isn't always better. ;-)

    They are right.
    If you are so stubborn to stay at IE6 and SP2, you deserve problems.

    They are wrong Rob! And so are you! I had problems with IE7 and IE8 with
    the websites I visit! Take titantv.com for example, it is so slow under
    IE7 and IE8 that I have to wait and wait before I can scroll or page
    through it. Yet IE6 is super fast at this site and other sites I visit.
    So what is good about IE7 and IE8 Rob? And no Rob, I don't have any
    problems since going back to IE6 and I have no interested in visiting
    that IE6 troubled site either.

    :Thanks Bill,

    I would have replied to Rob's post but all I would have to say to him and
    others like him is: They don't require an answer. They are trolls!! and want
    to start an argument.

    Back to the http://oyc.yale.edu site. I was able to get to the site using
    the address: http://oyc.yale.edu/courselist but when I clicked on a course
    I got the same thing as before, page name (not responding). If I did not, I
    could search, help and other stuff. One place it told that you can use IE 6.
    Just maybe an old FAQ page from last year.

    I downloaded the "msie60.exe" but it came out to be a blank page with
    "msie60.exe" under it to install it. Usually they come up with a page with a
    file in front to install them. No, I did not install it. Now what?

    Oh okay thanks Angel!

    Well the courselist worked for me except the very bottom has lines and
    dashes. Those are actually links under Firefox. I was using Maxthon
    1.5.6 which uses the IE6 engine. So I tried it with IE6 alone and the
    same thing. I tried the home page and that worked okay except the bottom
    again. Maybe they are doing things with their server or something the
    last two days. As I didn't see this before.

    I just tried:

    http://www.oldversion.com/Internet-Explorer.html

    And selected IE6 and that bar on the top popped up blocking the
    download. But I selected it and said it was okay to download and it is
    downloading now. You are running Windows 98 right? If so, maybe I should
    try this on one of my Windows 98 machines. This one is a Windows XP
    machine.

    Hi Bill-
    I don't personally care what browser you use, but I have to point out that I
    have IE8, and titantv.com is not slow at all. I can bounce between time
    blocks, check details and scroll instantly. My point being that maybe you
    have something else conflicting with your browser and/or that site. Do you
    use Spybot Search & Destroy?

    Yes, I use Spybot Search and Destroy, only on demand. I am also using an old

    Oh good deal it works for somebody! My sister just called me and her
    bank made her install IE8 and now she is complaining that her computer
    is so slow now. She has Vista and had IE7.

    Matter of fact I did at the time. Just on demand though and I rarely ran
    it. Why does it take something out of the registry or something that it
    shouldn't?

    Hi Bill,

    Did you try that on your 98SE like you said you would? (that IE6 you
    downloaded) What were the results?

    The Bank also wanted me to update my IE6 to IE8, which can't be done. So I
    ignore it! Your sister should uninstall the IE8 and go back to the IE7 she
    had in her computer. Anyway that is what I would do if I were her.

    Hi Angel! No the Windows 98SE machine is still buried in my closet.
    Tomorrow I should have some time to do that though.

    > (that IE6 you downloaded) What were the results?


    I downloaded it on one of my XP machines. All of my XP machines already
    have IE6. And XP machines wouldn't mean much trying to do the same thing
    under Windows 98SE anyway. As while IE6, OE6, and Media Player v9 might
    have all of the same version numbers... they are different between
    Windows 98SE, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.

    Hopefully that will work and is great advice. Although I know that bank
    and they used to require MS Money and wanted the newest version or it
    didn't work. Now they want the newest version of IE or it won't work.
    All I can do is suggest it to her and hope it works.

    Hi Angel

    Sorry for the delay. Been away for a couple of days.
    Not sure why you can't get it. I just tried again and it came up OK
    after the warning. I tried the Courses and that page came up OK as
    well.
    My IE6 SP1 is 6.0.2800.1106 with all relevant patches.
    Perhaps you have some security program that doesn't like it?

    The only thingI do in the web as far as the bank is concerned is check my
    statements and read their messages. I don't do anything about making
    payments, etc. So, maybe it wont work for her.

    Spybot S&D, when using Immunization, loads a bazillion sites into the
    Restricted Sites list. This has been a known problem with IE8 since shortly
    after it's release. I don't know what MS changed, but when I first
    installed IE8 (while using Spybot S&D), my online experience slowed to a
    crawl. Web sites would take _minutes_ to load instead of seconds. After
    forum/usenet searching, I found that it was Spybot-IE8 conflict. I reversed
    immunization, restarted, and it was like a new machine. I had to do the
    same on my wife's and mother's computers, and a few at work, because I
    pretty much used Spybot S&D on all the computers that I was responsible for
    maintaining. Some have also reported issues with Spywareblaster along the
    same lines, although I can't report on that personally.

    I do not use the Immunization.

    I have another problem w/IE6, I tried to access a site I even put in the
    trusted sites. When I try to access it, a gray box comes up with : Microsoft
    Internet Explorer in blue across the top. In the gray box these words:
    Internet Explorer cannot open the internet site http://kentwired.com
    Operation aborted At the bottom is a button marked OK

    I had even put in the www. but the address bar takes that out and leaves the
    above internet site..

    Can anyone help?
