Hello.  We are unable to open web pages in Internet Explorer (the desktop version) on a Windows 8 laptop.  We can consistently open pages in the Internet Explorer app.

Occasionally and without pattern, the IE desktop version will open a page but then revert to the "This Page Can't Be Displayed" error.

We have reset IE but the problem persists.

Suggestions?

Check any addons that you might have installed. Go to tools, manage Addons.  You can also try loading Internet Explorer (no addons) and see if the issue occurs. Not positive if Windows 8 has that option though.

how do you connect to the internet, do connect wirelessly or wired, do you connect directly to a router or to a cable modem?

jcimarron - the windows 8 'app' on the start/primary screen - struggling with verbiage.  the application opens and works fine.  it's just somewhat strange to operate for the person i'm working with at the moment.

will have a look at the article you included.

many thanks.

For the record on this, the client left town with the problem and it was never resolved.  He's somewhere in California now, so not sure what to do with the question....lame, I know.

Because I did most of the leg work and a true solution never emerged.
