is there anyway to reinstall ie without reformatting?
Yes, do the following:
Start/run/rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 c:\windows\inf\ie.inf
or check here:
don't use IE, just jump to firefox
yea i tried firefox too...no change, still does not open certain sites...any other ways?
If firefox is doing it too then it must be a problem other than IE.
Try resetting IE's settings to default maybe. Maybe your firewall.
Yeah check your firewall. Also delete your host file
what do you mean delete your host file and what should i check with my firewall?
delete it. windows will generate another one. the host file is where you can map an ip to a particular domain. so if i had www.cnn.com linked to abc's ip then whenever i enter cnn.com it will take me to abc's site. If the ip is old/outdated then you get a page not found.
Try disabling your firewall and see if you can access those sites or not afterwards.
Good advice there. ^^^
