While knowing the operating system and version of IE would be helpful, the solutions are pretty much the same:
* I doubt it will work, but try resetting IE to the default settings. (Go tools->internet options and use the restore settings on the "advanced" and "programs" tabs.)
* Click here to download and run IEFix.
* Run virus and spyware scans, as numerous ones will strike IE. You can click here for the complete list. For a basic screening, use a computer based AV, online AV scan, AdAware, SpyBot, and Microsoft Antispyware.
* Repair/reinstall IE. For IE6 on Windows XP click here. If it's IE6 running on an older version of Windows, click here for uninstallation instructions, then here to download IE6's installer.
Hope this helps,
I used to have a bit of technical background but have been away from the scene for a while. Anyway trying to help a friend with his computer. Here is his problem:
Int. Exp. refuses to allow more than one window at a time.ie. no multi-taking.
It also lockes and gives the dreaded "sorry I.E. has to close message," while surfing. The MSFT message center box stated a possible add-on problem to I.E. When I checked in tools there were several BHO's. How can I isolate and disable; could I set IE back to the default settings or would it be wise to do a re-install of Ie? Any help appreciated.
