This problem started after installing Chrome for a test run. After several hours of fooling around with MS suggestions and the attempts of others, I found that the box, "Use a proxy server for your LAN" had been checked (tools>internet options>(connections)>(LAN settings). Unchecking that box solved my problems.
Thank you

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

I just figured it out. I was having the same problem on my 64 bit vista and IE 8 not displaying hotmail and other secure sites such as banks. All I did was click on the IE 64bit icon in the program menu and it works. Just copy that icon into the desktop and delete the old one. Works fine now.
i am still not able to get the pages to show up.....can someonw please help me?
I have Windows XP and all the websites work except for the secure sights. At first I thought it was my new Verizon internet but its only on secure pages. What should I do in internet settings or web connections?

Try unclicking Automatically detect settings in Tools-Internet Options-Connections-LAN Settings-....

Got this off another forum and it works for me (IE8/Win7)
Thank you! This has resolved my problem.
dat shyt dnt even work
It's some kind of Malware starting all this by uncheck the proxy and check Automatically detect LAN Connection work for me.
Had the same problem... it was a trojan virus (a fake antispyware)... the norton 2010 free for 30 days took it off. Then this solved the IE changes, and now my google calender gadget works again. Thanks
Thank you that worked for me ....
I am having this same issue and I've had no luck resolving it.
- 'Automatically detect settings' is unchecked.
- 'Use automatic configuration script' is unchecked.
- 'Use a proxy server for your LAN' is unchecked.
- I have deleted temp internet files, cookies and history.
- The error seems to occur when the web page takes longer than a few seconds to load - almost as though it is timing out.
- Running without add-ons does not solve the problem.
- Upgrading from IE7 to IE8 did not solve the problem. (I was desperate :))
- All other browsers are fine.
- When I run IE as another user on my machine, the issue does not occur.

Any new ideas would be much appreciated.

thanks for the d help............... bro.........

hi jr you need to reset the tcp ip connection.go this link to reset it.use the microsoft fix fix it for need to reboot afterwards. dont forget to say thanks
The problem is windows 7 sometimes creates two network connections, right click on the little computers on the task-bar and open internet connections and click on change adapter settings and right click to disable, after that right click again to enable and your internet will work fine
Try clearing your cookies, your temporary internet files and your browsing history. I had the same problem and tried everything. This is what finally worked for me.
thank you. this worked

This is what worked for me as well. How strange!
Solved my problem Thanks
I keep getting a message internet explorer cannot displaythe webpage every time I try to order photos from an E mail I received from asda
If all else fails, try the following:

'Start', 'Run' regsvr32 jscript.dll <return>
Note: you should get a little window pop-up saying "successful"
then -
"Start', 'Run' regsver32 vbscript.dll <return>
Note: another little window pop-up hopefully saying "successful"

Reboot computer - trying IE8 again.
Hope this helped
Please work god o mighty!!!!!!!!!
Find the file Host in windows directory and open it with the notepad, delete all entries exept the first

Solved: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage but Firefox can

Thanks! The Internet Options, Connection, LAN Settings tab was just where I needed to go. It had been set to proxy by malware. I set it back to automatically detect and I can use Internet Explorer again!
Same for me, thanks a lot peeps
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I had it set to Proxy also and once I unchecked that it worked fine.
WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks!
internet web page canot be dispaly
a common problem in IE on Vista IE 8.0 beta I get the same on my office laptop with IE 8.0 Beta installed. Your security settngs are stoppng it along with Windows Defender I beleive.

better still use Firefox. ^_^

Or shut off Windows Defender. its windows 'version' of firewall. Crappy stuff.

I use proxy to brows internet but when I tried to brows I can not see any page only "white Page"
then I decide to test the connection to the internet using Static IP I can brows Internet

I am talking about one branch of my company the other branches use proxy to brows internet and they do not have any problem
Please check this problem with me
These problems are why I generally dont use IE anymore. I think its too much hastle to use it.
If all else fails workaround until fix is available is to left click and hold the hyperlink (or button) on the web page that doesn't work or open and drag it up to the next blank Tab in IE8 (i.e. drop it directly onto the TAB not the url address bar). Page then opens OK (am using windows 7).
thnx thnx thnx
