barely any in IE

by wupb15 / April 25, 2004 3:05 AM PDT

About a month ago, when everything was running smoothly on my computer, images started not displaying correctly on IE. It happened right after I installed Battlefield: Vietnam and AOL 9.0. I've uninstalled both of them, and with no effect. For example, on the Cnet site, 99% of the pictures won't display (red X's) and also on sites like ebay, there is an "action canceled" message on some parts of the screen, although i can still use most of the other parts of the site. Even more strangely, everything works perfectly on AOL 8.0, but my computer had been running with 8.0 fine and IE was working fine too. Oh, and whenever i hover my pointer over the Cnet sections at the top (desktops, notebooks, handhelds, cameras, etc.), there are several notifications about script errors and I can't even click it afterwards, even though I instructed IE to not run the scripts anymore. AOL support didn't help at all, neither did BF:Vietnam support. Thanks if you can help.

BTW I run winXP home, 512 MB ddr ram, 128mb ddr graphics GEforce 4 MX440, ... all with latest drivers, HP pavilion 764C w/no upgrades.

By the way I've tried clearing my internet cache, cookies, the "show pictures" box is checked, ... ive even run the "aol computer fix" program...and tweaked around with all the settings, reduced security to none, just about everything i could think of.

1. The article [Q217116] warns that an Internet Explorer Script Error may occur when accessing Windows Update if your Internet Service Provider (ISP) uses auto-configuration servers and discusses the potential fix.

2. The article [Q308260] states that a Web page may not display or work correctly and you may receive a Script Error because the HTML source code for the Web page does not work correctly with client-side scripts such as Microsoft JScript or Visual Basic and suggest several troubleshooting tips to fix the issue(s).

3. The article [814458] describes the by design condition that occurs after you install the February, 2003, Cumulative Patch (MS03-004) for Internet Explorer (prevents malicious Web sites from accessing information in another Internet domain, or on your local computer) when scripts in an HTML dialog window (that is opened by using the showModalDialog or showModelessDialog method) tries to set the security domain of the document to a different value.

4. Please read the article, "How to strengthen the security settings for the Local Machine zone in Internet Explorer (Q833633)."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
