IE7 - Operation Aborted

I've been getting this weird error in IE7 when I go to some sites saying something like

Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/04/01/tech.viruses/index.html.
Operation aborted

I think it might have something to do with an ad on the page because I get the error when there is no ad. I already tried resetting IE7 but I still get the error. I've checked for add-ons that might be causing it but I don't see anything. Has anyway seen this problem? Thank you

Have you tried lowering your security level?  or viewing the page in compatibility mode?

Well, I reset IE. What do you mean by "compatibility mode"? Do you mean with no add-ons? Yeah, I tried that. It seems to happen when I refresh the page I think.

Oh, I guess it's just that website. I don't think I've seen it anywhere else.

Yes, I've tried from several different machines, some running IE7 and some running IE6. I always get the same error and IE closes. It's gotta be the site!

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

You could try another browser too and just see if that works ok.

Yeah, well, it's not a big deal. I usually do use Firefox anyway. I guess it's just an error in the code.

This appears to be a known issue: (e.g.):

http://www.garyharan.com/index.php/2008/04/22/internet-explorer-cannot-open-the-internet-site-operation-aborted/

http://www.nirmaltv.com/2007/08/08/how-to-fix-internet-explorer-cannot-open-the-internet-site-operation-aborted-error/

No one seems to really know what causes this, or what to do about it, although there are many suggestions...
