Re: INTERNET EXPLORER WONT WORK

Try Tools->Internet options->viewed history 

and choose delete->delete all

 

or

 

Reinstall java drivers manually.

 

or

 

Go to Tools->Internet options-> programs

choose manage addons-> downloaded addons

Invidualy switch off every addon and find that which makes problem uninstal it and install again.

 

When you will switch off any of them restar explorer.

Hi,

Scan your compuer with antivirus program and also antispyware.

 

Downlad and install Spybot - Search & Destroy from here.

 

On first run You will be asked to set few things. Please don't choose there anything. Just skip this part.

 

When program will finally start click in menu (which is upper part of this program) on ' Mode ' and select there ' Advanced mode '.

On the left side of this program choose ' Settings ' and from the list which will appear click on ' Settings ' again.

In main window please change three things:

 

  • ' Desktop icon ' - check here ' Advanced mode '
  • ' Scan priority ' set on ' Time Critical '
  • ' Expert settings ' - enable here by checking ' Show experts buttons in results list ' and ' Show experts button in recovery list '

 

Choose from left panel this time ' Spybot - S&D ' and then click on ' Update ':

You will see full list of servers from which You may download all updates for this program. Choose nearest server and install them all. Now You should close this program and run it again with icon which You have now on Your desktop.

 

After this step You should check again is there any more updates available.

 

  • If yes - then do everything what You did here for the first time. 
  • If not - then do what's written below.

 

Choose ' Search & Destroy ' icon. Click on ' File sets ' and choose from the options there ' Select all avaible checks '.

Now You may start scanning by clicking on ' Check for problems ' icon.

 

When this process will be done choose ' Select all ' option and then from the list point on ' Fix selected problems '.
