Answer

A:

Hi Abcdfam,

Welcome to Microsoft Windows Vista Forums. 

I would like to gather a little more information to help resolve this issue.

 

Do you get this error with all websites or with specific website?

Do you get the error with other browsers?

 You can perform Internet Explorer Optimization and the steps are as follows: 

Method 1: Clear cached data in Internet Explorer

To determine whether a performance issue or an error message is caused by corruption in the temporary Internet files or in other cached information that is used by Internet Explorer, you must clear cached data. To do this, follow these steps:

Internet Explorer 7

1.    Open Internet Explorer 7.

2.    Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.

3.    In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.

4.    Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click OK.

Run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode

Internet Explorer add-ons, such as ActiveX controls and browser toolbars, are used by some Web sites to provide an enhanced browsing experience. An error may occur if an add-on is damaged or if an add-on conflicts with Internet Explorer. To determine whether the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode. To do this, follow these steps:

1.    Click Start, and then type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box.

2.    Click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons). Internet Explorer opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins.

3.    Test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly

 

 

Use the Manage Add-ons tool to determine which add-on is causing the issue

 

1.    Open Internet Explorer 7.

2.    Click Tools, point to Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons.

3.    In the Show box, select Add-ons that have been used by Internet Explorer to display all add-ons that are installed on the computer.

4.    For each item in this list, select the add-on, and then click Disable under Settings.

5.    When you have disabled all the items in this list, click OK.

6.    Exit and then restart Internet Explorer 7.

7.    If issues do not occur, repeat steps 1 through 3.

8.    Click Enable for a single add-on.

9.    Repeat steps 6 through 8 until you determine which add-on causes errors to occur.

 

 Reset security settings for Internet Explorer

If you configure security settings to be too restrictive, you may prevent Internet Explorer from displaying certain Web sites. To determine whether an issue is caused by overly restrictive security settings, revert to default security settings. To do this, follow these steps:

1.    Open Internet Explorer.

2.    Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.

3.    Click the Security tab.

4.    Click Reset all zones to default level, and then click OK.

 Lets perform Safe Mode With Networking

Step 1: Use safe mode with networking

To determine whether the problem is related to software compatibility, test Internet Explorer in safe mode with networking. Safe mode is a way of running Vista with a minimal set of device drivers, programs, and services. Safe mode is usually used for troubleshooting.

If you cannot use safe mode with networking

To start the computer in safe mode with networking, follow these steps:

a.            Click Start

Collapse this imageExpand this image, and then type msconfig in the Start Search box.

b.            In the Programs section, click Msconfig.exe.

c.            In the System Configuration dialog box, click the Boot tab.

d.            Click to select the Safe boot check box, click Network, and then click OK.

e.            In the System Configuration dialog box, click Restart.

The computer restarts in safe mode with networking. Test Internet Explorer to determine whether the problem still occurs. If the problem does not occur, a service or a program may cause compatibility problems when the computer starts as usual. In this situation, restart the computer in normal mode. To restart the computer in normal mode, follow these steps:

a.            Click Start Collapse this imageExpand this image, and then type msconfig in the Start Search box.

b.            Under the Programs section, click Msconfig.exe.

c.            In the System Configuration dialog box, click the Boot tab.

d.            Click to clear the Safe boot check box, and then click OK.

e.            In the System Configuration dialog box, click Restart.

Lets perform clean boot to check any third party applications is conflicting with Internet Explorer

Step 1: Perform a clean boot

Note If the computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from following these steps. We strongly recommend that you do not use the System Configuration utility to modify the advanced boot options on the computer unless a Microsoft support engineer directs you to do this. Doing this may make the computer unusable.

a.            Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.

  1. Click Start

Collapse this imageExpand this image, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility.

Collapse this imageExpand this imageIf you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

c.            On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)

  1. On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all.

    Note Following this step lets Microsoft services continue to run. These services include Networking, Plug and Play, Event Logging, Error Reporting, and other services. If you disable these services, you may permanently delete all restore points. Do not do this if you want to use the System Restore utility together with existing restore points.
  2. Click OK, and then click Restart.

Step 2: Enable half of the services

a.            Follow steps 1a and 1b to start the System Configuration utility.

  1. Click the Services tab, and then click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box.
  2. Click to select half of the check boxes in the Service list.
  3. Click OK, and then click Restart.

Step 3: Determine whether the problem returns

If the problem still occurs, repeat step 1 and step 2. In step 2, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the Service list.

If the problem does not occur, repeat step 1 and step 2. In step 2, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the Service list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

If only one service is selected in the Service list, and you still experience the problem, the selected service causes the problem. Go to step 6. If no service causes this problem, go to step 4.

Step 4: Enable half of the Startup items

a.            Perform a clean boot by repeating step 1.

  1. Click the Startup tab, and then click to select half of the check boxes in the Startup Item list.
  2. Click OK, and then click Restart.

Step 5: Determine whether the problem returns

If the problem still occurs, repeat step 1 and step 4. In step 4, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the Startup Item list.

If the problem does not occur, repeat step 1 and step 4. In step 4, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the Startup Item list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

If only one startup item is selected in the Startup Item list, and you still experience the problem, the startup item that is selected in the list is the service that is causing the problem. Go to step 6.

If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat step 1 and step 2 without selecting the Hide all Microsoft services check box in either step.

Step 6: Resolve the problem

After you determine the startup item or the service that causes the problem, contact the program manufacturer to determine whether the problem can be resolved. Or, run the System Configuration Utility, and then click to clear the check box for the problem item.

Step 7: Reset the computer to start as usual

After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

a.            Click Start

Collapse this imageExpand this image, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

Collapse this imageExpand this imageIf you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

b.            On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.

  1. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.
