Maddening IE7 error

Okay, this has really got me riled. Over the last several weeks I have started getting an IE7 error when trying to load certain websites. Two of them are www.walmart.com and www.cnn.com

There are others, but those will do for now. The error I get is:

"Internet explorer cannot open the Internet Site Http://www.cnn.com"
Operation Aborted

System is a T61 Thinkpad
XP Pro
SP3

I've reset IE to factory defaults
Updated Java
Tried it with no addons

Nothing has helped. What is particularly perplexing is that the webpage pretty much loads as shown in the attachment, then throws up the error message. System has been scanned by multiple A/V. Running Both Superantispyware Pro and Avast! for real-time protection. Have scanned with MBam also. Everything is clean.

Any ideas????

Almost forgot. I also use Opera, and have no trouble opening any of the problem sites with it.

Thanks

It looks like its a problem with IE 7 that has been fixed with an upgrade to IE 8.

There was a time when the Skype plugin could cause such errors on certain sites. If you use Skype, try with its plugin disabled.

Have you tried deleting the IE temporary files?

Deleted temp files
Cleared the cache
Reset all IE Settings

I know that installing IE8 will most likely take care of the issue, from what I have read. I would just like to figure out, if possible, what the reason is that this started happening.

When you deleted the temp files, did you delete the Cookies as well?

It doesn't look like an ordinary user can do much about this problem, looks like its up to the developers.

Extract from the second link in my original post:

In fact, in most scenarios that we encountered, ad injection in an iframe was usually the root cause of this error.


Tag: ad injection

Ad Logger
 Logs data about iframe clicks: can log clicks from Google AdSense, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter. Logs URL, IP, browser, and size of the clicked iframe.

I ended up installing IE8, as I knew that I would most likely end up doing. I just wanted to understand why it was happening and to determine if there was any other solution. Thanks for your comments and suggestions.
