I was browsing the net today like any other regular day, but this one website which I normally visit to get important information about my work is not accessible. Other websites are working properly, so I do not have any idea where the problem comes from.
I am using Internet Explorer 8 and every time I try to load the page, the website doesn’t open and an untitled page appears.
I checked the URL of the webpage from http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ to check if the site was really down or it is only me. The result was the site was up.
I already tried cleaning my cache and history, restarted the router and my PC and running the internet explorer with no add ons, but still nothing seems to be working.
Are there anything else that I can do to solve this problem? What seem to be creating the problem?
Internet Explorer 8 Error on loading a specific website
There are many feedbacks on IE 8 which are commonly pertaining to bugs. That even page of Microsoft Website Publishing Software and Microsoft Publisher was unable to load properly in IE 8. Some issues include missing web contents on some sites and web crashes.
Some of the bugs is when you try to mouse hover over the button it will not show you the menu, supposedly it will list down those menus. When viewing transparent images on some sites it will not show the transparent part of the picture but instead it will replace it with black color. If your problem was only unable to display a content of web page then you might try any of the following below to solve this problem.
On your Internet Explorer 8, select the “Tools” tab, Select Internet Options, Go to “Advanced” tab and click the “Restore advanced settings” and click the “Reset” button as well. See image below.
Open the command prompt and run is as administrator. To open the command prompt, select start, click run and type cmd. Type the command line “netsh winsock reset”, exit. Reboot your computer.
Check the network and sharing center (network activity). Make sure the connection is on.
On your firewall, disable it and try if you can access now the website you wish to access. If so then Enable again the firewall and manage the exemptions.
In some cases make sure that your browser is not set to work offline. Check the tools and verify if not set to work offline.
If you have recently conduct a windows update then try to use the system restore.
If you have installed the MSN optimize for IE8 then uninstall in and just use the regular version.
If you have an add-on installed recently it may be incompatible to the webpage that you are visiting. Disable the add-on and see if you can now access the site.
If the issue is not caused by the new add-on then see if any third-party program that you installed recently affect the browser.
Try to reinstall the Internet Explorer 8. Disable the anti-virus when installing the Internet Explorer and try to re-download again the IE8 installer it might be corrupted.
If you are connected to a proxy check the server if it blocks or if it is not allowing a certain website. The proxy server can block web sites by just referring to a key word that has been defined.
