Forum problem

by slybo / April 2, 2007 5:17 AM PDT

I just tried to read here at Viruses and Security with Internet Explorer and get this Internet Explorer cannot read this site operation aborted error. But I can read this site with AOL. This is happening on both my computers all at once so I do not believe it is me but a problem with the site. I also tried to look at the XP forum and had the same result. Like I say everything was fine earlier and I had not been on the computer till now. Anyone else having this problem. Also I have tried looking at a lot of other sites with no problem like the weather channel and Calender of Updates. slybo

I have the u3 edition of Firefox on a flash drive and have no problem viewing this site with it. Seems to be just Internet Explorer and the CNET forums. slybo

I am now having the problem with AOL along with IE7, just to let everyone know the problem is worse. I have posted on the Feedback forum along with several other people having this problem. The only way I can get to the cnet forum is with my u3 version of Firefox. Hope they get this fixed soon. slybo

Perhaps the following will hold a helpful clue.

Since the AOL problem does not exist on my computer with IE6, do you think yours has to do with IE7?

My AOL 9.0 Optimized is an old version, originally the paid version (now free) which means it is widely integrated in my system......the "new AOL" is less involved......never used AOL customized browser, however.

Yes IE7
by slybo / April 3, 2007 6:15 AM PDT

Yes I believe it does have to do with IE7. There is a long thread about 50 post on this in the Feedback forum named IE cannot load cnet page by Toni H. They are working on the problem. slybo

People experiencing the IE "Operation abort" error pls read

This applies to Internet Explorer users only. FireFox user are not affected.

We been digging around at this bug and what I discovered is that this error only appears on discussion thread pages--not on the CNET forum directory or on the forum listing pages.

I also discovered that you will get this error only if you are not logged into CNET. So if you log in, you should not receive this error.

So to prevent this from happening, go to the CNET forum directory page here: http://forums.cnet.com , go to the top right hand corner of the page and login to CNET and check the "remember me" box. Once you've logged in you should be able to access any forum discussion thread without any issues.

Please let me know if this works for you.

Thanks and I apologize for this inconvenience. I'm hoping we will have this fixed soon.

Best regards,

It Works
by slybo / April 3, 2007 6:52 AM PDT

Thanks Lee that works on both computers and IE7 and AOL. I come here and most of the time just read. I only log in when I need to post, maybe that is why a lot of people are not having this problem since they may log in each time. Thanks slybo

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?
