IE Issue

Discussion in 'Tech Talk' started by NMPD506, Oct 28, 2008.

  1. I hope you guys are smarter than me on this:

    Bought my wife a new laptop about a month ago (Dell Inspiron(?) 1500 series)

    It has Vista Home installed - All seems to be OK w/ that.

    However, when she is on the net (Interent Explorer) she can not click the down arrow on the address bar to look at/jump to recently visited sites. When she clicks it, it pops up an error and shuts down I.E. It has done this from day one - out of the box. If you free type the address - no problems. Only when you click the down arrow on the right side of the address bar does this occur.

    Any ideas? I am pretty sure that the service pack 1 is already installed - I'm stumped and really don't want to call Dell and decifer/translate whatever language customer service is speaking.

    Thanks!

    Thats weird... Is Windows Update showing any critical updates waiting to be installed? Thats the one thing I hate about IE, and how tightly integrated into the OS it is, if there's a problem, its gonna be a major problem.

    I'd just install Firefox, and be done with it. Its a safer browser than Internet Exploder anyways.

  3. You can uninstall IE then redownload it from microsoft, it sounds like something is missing from within the software. Or, as I do sometimes, I have a U3 enabled smart drive that has mozilla firefox and thunderbird on it. Sometimes my security settings prevent me from being able to download bank statements so I need firefox.
