Windows 7: internet explorer not working

13 Apr 2009   #11


My beta machine just started displaying this behavior today. That IIS option was set by default the whole time. I've spent the last few hours beating my head against the wall because IP connectivity, ping, nslookup, certain Inet calls that don't traverse IE all worked. Not to mention my vista machine sitting right next to me.

It is really wierd that this just became an issue today, but thanks for ending my insanity.

Win 7

Internet Options - Connections - LAN Settings - Uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" box. This worked for me :)

Worked for me, too! Thanks, I spend hours trying to fix it. It wouldn't let me load lyrics from winamp, which is how I learned of the IE problem. Firefox FTW. Otherwise Win 7 is wonderful.
