SO recently Ive been forced into using Internet Explore (OH GOD PLEASE NO)
One problem I'm having with IE is that it does not let me open Tumblr.
It just says would you like to open register-insertnumberhere-?
I don't know what to do, help?


Second problem (Copy-pasted from a recent journal)

My Chrome crashes in five seconds and I have tried evreything, disabling shockwave, uninstalling the second shpckwabe file, re-installing Chrome twice, Each time it stops for two days, then comes back. It gotten to the point where I can barely browse the internet. I click on the scroll bar and it crashes, I click on a link, it crashes. I open a new tab, shcokwave flash doesnt load, page unresponsive, etc. etc. And this goes for EVREYTHING.

Glad to see your problem is resolved, if Chrome ever acts up again, I suggest installing the browsers Comodo Dragon or SRware Iron. They are pretty similar to Google Chrome.

usually when windows is acting moody is because administrator rights (have you tried installing chrome with right click "run as administrator" even thought you are the admin ?)

First up there is nothing wrong with Internet Explorer 9. In fact I think it is actually better than Firefox 17. If I.E had ad block+ I think I would be using that as my main browser instead of Firefox 17 (which I currently use as my main browser).

Secondly I have just tried Tumblr on my I.E9 and it works beautifully. So it can't be I.E that is the problem. Can I ask what version of I.E are you using?

Thirdly you have shown why I wouldn't use crap Chrome for all the gold on the planet. Chrome is crap get rid of it. I.E9 is superiour to it. But since you don't like I.E go and get Firefox 17.0. Fx kicks the crap out of Chrome.

No, I'd much rather use Chrome... Its easier, I don't like complicated things.
And I'm not sure which kind of IE I have, how can I check?

Do this, load up Internet Explorer along the top of the page on the right hand side you will see "page" "safety" "tools" and a ? inside a little blue circle. Click on it and a drop down box will appear. Click on "about Internet Explorer" and that brings up a "box" that tells you what version of I.E you are using.

Can I ask, Have you tried clicking on "compatibility view" on I.E. On I.E9 "if you have it" go to tumblr and on the right hand side of the address bar look for a little box on the left side of the "refresh arrow" that is you compatibility view click on that and see if it does anything.

Also can I ask what Windows you are using?

There is nothing complicated whatsoever about Firefox. Like I said Fx 17.0 is good browser and really easy to use. Why don't you download Fx17.0 and give it a try.

Like I said get rid of the rubbish Chrome. Internet Explorer and Firefox beat the living crap out of it. Hells even Opera and Safari would be a better choices over Chrome. I have been using Firefox for over 2 years and Internet Explorer for about 15 years.

First of all, I would like to continue using Chrome, and I don't want to start arguing over web browsers, because that's pretty stupid. And I don't think my little laptop can handle any more browsers, its almost packed to overflowing already.

Also, I am using Windows 7 Starter.
My IE doesn't seem to have the "?" option? It has Home, Favorites, and Options, and the Options menu doesn't have anything about IE.

Yeah I see what you mean. I just checked I.E 9 on my dads Laptop which is also Windows 7 starter.

Do you see the little house, star and cog symbol? Click the cog a drop down menu will appear click "about internet explorer" and it will tell you.

It should be IE9 you have got.

Also I was able to get tumblr working on my dads IE9 no problem.

Like I said try your compatibility view om IE9.

I click on the cog but it doesn't have 'about internet explorer.'

It should. I have it on my Windows 7 PC and my dad's laptop has it and thjat is also Windows 7 starter like yours.

Have a look at the very bottom of the drop down box. It is there.

If you haven't yet, you should check for any parasites on your computer: Malwarebytes Antimalware [link] and SuperAntiSpyware: [link] -both free applications. Run quick scans (independently, one app at a time) with both of these and delete anything bad they find.
