Hi there,

To find a solution for the mentioned connection issue,please refer to link below from official Microsoft website and follow instructions.

Probably the most stupid reply in history (mine not yours!) but.... what link?

Also Ive been told about downloads to fix the problem but cant download because cant get on the website to do so...

Still need help Im afraid

I encountered the same thing the other day on a friends PC. When I say "the same" I assume that your IE is opening and then "not responding" straight away, closing shortly after.

In my case, I had to find a way to test the internet connection so I went to the windows update centre and checked for updates... and found one for IE. It was a minor update and i'm not saying that this is a system problem that Microsoft have had to fix. What seems to have happened is that IE didn't want to run without Windows Update having told it that it was up to date with patches and such.

The end of the story is that IE didn't have a problem after that point and my friend now uses Google Chrome as a back up explorer for cases like this.
