IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve upgraded my Laptop from Vista to Windows 7 - all appears to be working OK except Internet Explorer 8. When I try to connect to the internet, IE displays the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Internet Explorer cannot display the webpageÃ¢â‚¬Â error Ã¢â‚¬â€œ however Firefox has no problem connecting to the internet, so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not a network connectivity issue. When using IE, I get the same error if I try to connect to different websites (ie. it never works). IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve run the IE diagnostic tool, but that fails to identify any problems. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve also reset IEÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s settings back to default (under the Internet Options Ã¢â‚¬Å“AdvancedÃ¢â‚¬Â tab) but not joy. HOWEVER, I have found that if I DISABLE the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Enable Protected ModeÃ¢â‚¬Â option under the Ã¢â‚¬Å“SecurityÃ¢â‚¬Â tab, IE8 then works normally. If I re-enable it again, IE stops working again, and vice versa. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve tried various Security Levels with Protected Mode enabled, but IE will only work if I disable it completely (by un-ticking the box). I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really want to leave Protected Mode disabled (for obvious reasons!). IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m happy to use Firefox, however my wife prefers IE and is giving me a hard time (as it was my idea to upgrade to Win.7) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ so any advice would be gratefully appreciated!!
