As a user of Microsoft Internet Explorer for years, a computer enthusiast since before the days of Windows, and a web designer I figured if my Internet Explorer 8 had any problems it would be easy enough for me to fix using my current knowledge.
If you are having problems with Internet Explorer, you may be reading this in another browser, and I will assume so below. If you can’t get Internet Explorer running try “Get it Running” below.
My issue with Internet Explorer 8 appeared earlier today while trying to check out a web page I was working on that popped up a notification that Adobe Flash Player had to be updated. I clicked the install button and got an error that boiled down to 2 choices – debugging Internet Explorer’s error or closing Internet Explorer. Following common sense choices (clicking Update Flash followed by closing Internet Explorer) the browser would crash and then restore the previous page, and repeat. On the third time instead of trying to restore the previous page I got a message that it could not be restored. After a couple of times of going through this cycle I went to Google for help. I even clicked on an Adsense ad that promised an IE fix and landed on an attractive page letting me know that Softpedia certified their download as 100% Free, and having no spyware, no adware and no viruses. However checking SoftPedia for their Perfect Optimizer product did not yield any links to the site, so I got discouraged and went back to Google.
Depending upon your Operating System you can try one of these pages. If you have Windows XP, try either and follow instructions as closely as possible. If you can’t get Internet Explorer to run right try this (first option on both of the pages below):
Get it Running
Click Start > click All Programs > click Accessories > click System Tools > click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) and hopefully this will fix or get around your problem for the moment, now visit one of the links below.
