Windows 7: Problem with internet explorer 8

Problem with internet explorer 8

Hello. I have problems with internet explorer 8. Each time i open it, everything seems fine. But when I click on Tools, it blocks. That happens everytime. I was thinking it may be a problem of addons, so I deactivated them all, but still without results. So I went do Add or Remove Programs, at deactivate windows characteristics, and i unchecked internet explorer 8, rebooted, and then checked again, then i went to internet options and cleared all cookies, but still without results. I have the same problem. What should I do? Thanks for future answers!


Yours, Emilyan

What do you mean, "It blocks"? What does tools block?

There are many buttons up the window, like file, edit, history, etc. and one of them is tools. When i Click on tools, it simply blocks. Without getting to click on internet options and the others which are part of it. I mean Internet Explorer 8 blocks, and I can only remove it from processes in task manager.

Are you blocked from going into the control panel and clicking on the 'Internet Options' Icon?

What do you want to do in the 'options'? Please explain in more detail.

I still don't understand what you mean by blocks. Does it block you from opening the tools tab? Does it grey out the internet options button? Does a message appear when you click internet options?

Here I will attach a photo. The pannel is in romanian, but "Instrumente" means "Tools". As you see, when I am clicking on "Instrumente", it simply blocks, without showing me what it contains. As a consequence, I can only close Internet Explorer from processes tab in task manager, and I cannot do anything with it, just close it and run it again.
All I want is to have a full functional non-error Internet Explorer

You should be able to close it with the little red x in the upper-right hand corner of the window or through the File menu. Are you using a standard or admin account on your computer?

I cannot close with that X, no matter how many times I click on it (since it blocks......). I am using an admin account on my computer. As I pointed out before, I can only close it from processes tab in task manager.

Right click on a blank part of the menu bar and check "command bar". The new command bar can be customized to show another "Tools" option: right click on a blank spot choose customize then "add or remove commands..." . Now add the Tools command. See if that lists all your options. If it does, at the bottom of the list choose /Internet Options/Advanced/Reset.

If you can't get to "Internet Options" that way, you should try getting to it through Control Panel or type "Internet Options" (w/o quotes) in the start menu search box. (Close IE first.)

I have checked command bar, but when I click on the other tools option, it blocks like it was with the other "tools" option. I went through control pannel to internet options and reseted it, but still when I enter Internet Explorer it blocks when I click on Tools option.
