I'm having a problem trying to use internet explorer. It begins to load and then goes in to non responding mode. I was able to access the net by using Google Chrome but was wondering if anyone might no what the problem is. My connection is fine but internet explorer itself seems to be the problem. I am not a computer genus so any advice would be much appreciated.

update it. Or check why its not responding. There is usually an error message copy and paste the error message to a different browser and see what it says. Then look up a step by step fix. I suggest using firefox

Oh sweet jesus, the best thing you can do for your computer and sanity is to get a new browser. Google Chrome is my favourite. But internet explorer is a virus haven slow piece of crap.

Answer:
Try these suggestions: Microsoft

Better answer: Try switch to another browser. Personally, I use Firefox, but Chrome is good too.

Unfortunately some things require IE, but it is absolute junk. I personally find Dragon the best; it's the most secure and is built on top of Chrome.

I'm going to give you the best advice you will get concerning Internet Explorer; stop using it. As a web developer I despise it, it's only one of the 4 major browsers because it comes pre-installed with windows. Google Chrome is by far the fastest and ahead when it comes to CSS3 support, next is firefox. I strongly suggest you get one of those, Chrome is more user friendly than firefox, you'll know how to use it as soon as you open it.

IE10 may be a different story, I haven't tried it yet, but I know it's a huge improvement.

Before switching search engines start with the most obvious thing first, try turning your computer off and restarting it. Solves most problems.

I've had the same problem you describe. Just reinstall; takes a couple of minutes.

But the best help you can get for IE is to use Firefox instead. As you say, there are some sites that require IE, so here's what you do: Get IE Tab (LINK):

The 10 best Firefox add-ons you must have


Despite the obvious advantages of having a WC3 compliant website, there are still amateur web designers & programmers out there making websites that only work on Internet Explorer. IE Tab emulates IE7 in a Firefox tab and lets you view sites as if you were using Internet Explorer. This extension is very useful for web developers to test websites on multiple browsers without having to switch between windows.

Still won't fix the main problem, IE sucks.

Good move, IE is terrible. Firefox is very customizable, with all kinds of addons and themes and whatnot. Go HERE to check those out. Two other good options to try out are Chrome and Opera.
Congratulations on trashing IE though. If I was you I'd permanently uninstall it.

Here's something cool for you to check out, it lets you use custom web page styles.

A man walks into his doctors office

"Doctor, Doctor ya gotta help! It hurts like crazy when I go like this!"

The doctor looks the man up and down, the stern look of concern on his face. He pauses as he thinks, and then says..

"Well then, stop going like that!"

...

It's nice advice to say "Don't worry about why IE is being a twerp! Just use firefox!". But if the OP's anything like me then putting a band aid on a problem still leaves you wondering why it happened. Not enough detail in the OP. could be anything.

I gave up on Firefox years ago, every time I'd install it get it customized, it would start crashing the machine and coming back with the 400 page not found, server errors and red x picture place holders all the time. I switched to Chrome, for about a year then found Dragon been with it two years and haven't looked back... en.wikipedia.org...

Bypassing a problem is not solving it, and good opportunity of learning something useful may be lost, that's why I always try to solve a problem instead of bypassing it.

To the OP, try to run IE in safe mode, if it's some add-on causing the problem (the most likely scenario) then the problem will not show in safe-mode.
