All those extra tunnel adaptors can cause problems such as you are describing.

If you want to get rid of those rogue tunnel adaptor entries then go to device manager, go to view at the top of the page and then select "show hidden devices". Then go to "Network adaptors" and just delate all the extra tunnel adaptors you see there, windows will create a new one automatically. After that check your ipconfig /all to see if they all have been delated.

If they all don't show up you can change a registry setting to make them all show up "backup the registry first". You should have a nice clean ipconfig after that.

Registry Settings, navigate too the following key.
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTE\CurrentControlSet\Control \Session Manager\Environment]
Value Name: DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value Data: (1 = show all hidden devices)

After rebooting you can test IE 32 again and see if it helps.

@DustSailer. Dude, that worked like a charm. IE9 is back up and running when it wouldn't do anything but open to a blank screen. I used the IE Restoration.

IE 8 32 bit not working but 64 bit is.

In Windows 7 Professional 64 bit computer, the IE 8 is 32 bit is not working but 64 bit is working. I am also not able to send/receive mails from Windows LIve/ Thunderbird or run Teamviewer/Skype. However the Feeds in Windows Mail are getting downloaded.
I have done 'Reset' in advance Tabs / 'sfs scannow' is clean / IE restorer has been run / Downloaded Firefox - but that does not run / Created new User Account - but that does not help / Downloaded IE 9 but there too 32 bit is not working whereas 64 bit is working.

Surprisingly IE8- 64 bit is working alright.

Appreciate help.

Hello bakshir, and welcome to the forums

First, I would recommend ensuring that your computer is malware-free. If you do not have an antivirus, find one that you like. If you do, us it.

Optional - If you would like, try this Microsoft scan in addition: Microsoft Safety Scanner - Antivirus | Remove Spyware, Malware, Viruses Free

Next, ensure that you have installed all the latest drivers for your laptop. Go to the Sony website to find them: Sony eSupport - Drivers & Software Updates - Select a Model

Next, try this:

Hopefully that will fix it

Dear Sailor,
Tried all as quoted above. Also ran the Fixit from Microsoft. The problem is not resolved.

Alrighty,

All of my posts apply to 32bit only (not 64)

Add-ons: Manage add-ons for Internet Explorer - Microsoft Windows Help
Try disabling all add-ons except for adobe reader/flash player.
Please leave all other add-ons disabled for now, until the issue is resolved. Additionally, make sure adobe add-ons are all updated by visiting the website: Download a free trial or buy Adobe products | Adobe downloads

Try reseting IE: How to reset Internet Explorer settings - you have the option of keeping settings (passwords, etc) or deleting.

Make sure your computer is completely up to date through windows update - I will even recommend using IE9 or higher exclusively. IE8 is far less secure and less handy.

Ensure that your copy of windows is genuine: Genuine Microsoft Software - if it isn't, please do not reply. If it is and you still are having trouble, let me know!

Also let me know what antivirus software you are running. Sometimes it will conflict with windows operations.
