I am having an issue accessing a couple of webpages from our terminal server. If I open the website with Firefox everything is fine. If I open the website using the "iexplore.exe -extoff" It works fine. If I just open it I get a Cannot display webpage. Now I have go through the Microsoft article of disabling each add-on. I disabled every add-on running it in normal mode and still cannot display. This is driving me up the wall any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello cstallings,

Are you using IE6 or IE7.  In IE go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab.   Uncheck "Enable third party extensions".  Click OK. Restart the computer.

Hope this helps!

Does the PC have to be restarted it is a terminal server and hard to just reboot. I am using IE 7.

Tried without restarting the computer and that did not do it. We are running a 2008 64-bit server.

Now I do not know if this helps but the addresses that I am having problems with are like a linksys type configuration page. So I would go to like http://1.1.1.1

stallings, you try by only restarting the browser.  But it is a registry change, the change sometimes do not take effect without starting the computer.
