Topics I've Started
11 February 2013 - 11:19 AMI'm stumped.
Say I go to Twitter, the Twitter feed loads the first group, then it will not load any further. The spinner wait symbol just keeps spinning, I can't click on a Tweet to open it (to reply, for example). The left column only loads my information and the Twitter contacts box, the rest of that column never loads.
Say I go to the Google forums, I can get to the YouTube Help forums, the page loads the list of posts, but if I open a particular thread, only the headers load and a small box that says "Loading" just sits there. No question, no text, it just sits there, a blank page (except for the headers).
Third example: Go to my online email, which works, but usually it automatically signs me into the messenger program. That does not happen, it never does.
Something is stopping the "rest" of pages from loading.
I had Java disabled in the browser ever since that was an issue and those sites worked while it was disabled in the past. I tried enabling it just in case, no change. I tried ensuring I had the latest Java update (oddly, I did not, they must have JUST released one), updated, tried it both enabled and disabled in the browser (I'm leaving it disabled as it makes no difference) - no difference either way.
My Internet settings are set to defaults - no custom options.
I tried IE/No add-ons, no difference.
I use MSSE, running it regularly but I updated it again anyway, ran a full scan, nothing showed up, no difference with the browser.
I tried Chrome and everything works fine (but I'm unfamiliar with Chrome so it's a pain to use), so ... it's IE.
Jeez ... What is blocking content from being loaded? Why ... I kept looking for a solution, decided to reinstall IE. The MS website had a "Fix-it" Wizard. Couldn't run it in a user account (which I always use) so I signed in as admin, ran the Wizard and ... It disabled Data Execution Protection! What?!? First, I've never had an issue with that before, so WHAT CHANGED? Second, I DON"T WANT to disable DEP. It's ... data execution protection for Pete's sake.
OK, it seemed to work. While signed in as an admin, IE worked as expected. I signed into a user account and ... IE was not fixed. OK, so you have to disable DEP for each user account? Fine, can't use the Wizard because it requires an admin account, so manual it is.
I find the option in Control Panel, the only options are to enable DEP for Windows programs, or all programs (it was enabled for all, always has been). Option "A" seems like it would still be an issue with IE and option "B" is already selected so ... You can add an exception, a single program that will not be protected by DEP.
I navigate the file selector to IE 10 and ... You can't select a 64 bit program!
Gack. I'm stuck again.
