  • Internet Explorer Help

    O.K. all you computer savvy folks(I though I was fairly savvy myself, but obviously NOT) I'm having trouble with Internet Explorer 6/7. This all started yesterday when a notice popped up on my computer that said my free trial(I recently purchased a Dell Dimension Desktop in December) of "Norton Internet Security" was going to expire in 28 days and I needed to renew. I wasn't a big fan of the Norton stuff to begin with so I definitely wasn't going to renew it. I went one step further--I uninstalled the Norton suite and everything went fine i.e. no error messages regarding anything.

    I try to get back on the internet after uninstalling the Norton and some of the pages are whacked out. The MC site doesn't look normal, the Sirius site is totally off, and some of the links don't work. At this point I still had IE 6.

    This morning I came in and thought that possibly the problem could be not having IE 7. So, I downloaded and installed but the problem is still occurring. I have talked to Sirius support about the web site. They have had no other reported problems. I have talked to Dell--not much help--don't get me started(I wanted to put red, angry emoticon here but just noticed those aren't working either). I've also been reading the IE help application all day and can't find anything regarding this. I've deleted all my cookies, internet history, reset everything to defaults, etc.

    Has anyone experienced any issues like this with IE 6 or 7. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully it's something extremely stupid that've I've done and I may be raked over the coals for it

    P.S. I wanted to post screen prints of the screens I'm getting, but am unable to attach presumably due to this latest gremlin(just found this out as well).

    Did you try to uninstall and reinstall IE6? It sounds as though it may have been corrupted during the removal of Norton -

      Try cleaning up all of the registry keys left over by norton. Norton and McAfee are terrible programs and end up doing more damage than good.

        I did try to uninstall and re install IE 7, but not 6. I could not find six to download. I would definitely like to try if I could find IE 6 for download.

          My thoughts exactly--atleast about Norton and McAfee being junk!! How would I go about cleaning these registry keys?

          Thanks for ya'lls quick responses!

              I have tried both Mozilla and Netscape(owned by the same group now?) and neither will work with the Sirius player. I prefer the look and feel of Mozilla but, it just doesn't work with the player(and also some sites I use for work).

                    haven't used Internet Explorer in years!

                    but, if you need it to run a certain website, I understand

                      what about restoring back to before you uninstalled norton?

                          I use a program called CCleaner download it and give it a shot. Works really well for deleting old registry keys so that you don't have to go searching for them yourself.

                          I find that between AVG Free and CCleaner that I don't have any problems with my computer.

                          Norton I find to be a system hog
                          I live in my own little world. But it's OK - They know me here

                            CCleaner stands for crap cleaner and it works fine

                              IE6 is still available on the Microsoft site, it is just hard to find. Look under downloads, internet, Internet Explorer Service Pack 1. It is the whole thing, not just a service pack.
