More on Internet Explorer

Rick Frederickson
Computer Technician

Last week I explored Internet Explorer script errors and how to solve them. However, since Internet Explorer is usually your computer's first contact with the Internet you may find it can pick up all kinds of odd behavior.
It may lock up. Your home page may change. You may see new toolbars near the top of it. Recently, I worked on one computer that had 11 toolbars installed into Internet Explorer. These supposed "helpers" slowed the Internet to a crawl and caused Internet Explorer to lock up.
The quickest and easiest way to fix Internet Explorer is to reset it. Here's how:
1. Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
2. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, then click Internet Explorer.
3. Click the Tools button, then click Internet Options.
4. Click the Advanced tab, then click Reset.
5. Check the Delete Personal Settings box.
6. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
7. When Internet Explorer finishes applying default settings, click Close, click OK, then click OK again.
8. Close Internet Explorer.
When you reset Internet Explorer you will not lose your favorites. Your home page will change to MSN and you will lose your history list. You also will be rid of a lot of issues and annoying toolbars that slow down or lock up Internet Explorer.
