    IE 10 problem

    Downloaded and installed IE 10 for Windows 7. Big mistake. All I could get it to do was give me "Cannot display this page messages" for any site I tried to go to. Odd thing was my PC is hard wired and connection was there.

    Go to the CP, Programs and Features, View Installed Updates. Find IE 10 and uninstall. Your previous version of IE will be reinstalled.

    This is the first I've heard of this problem.

    Have you checked the connection settings?

    What was the specific HTTP error?

    Not sure I know which connection settings and specific HTTP error you are referring to. Please explain.

    When IE said "can't display this page" there should've been something to show more information about the error.

    Click on the little gear in the upper right then select "Internet Options', then the Connections tab. That is the connection information I mean.

    The following is all that appears on the page in question. Nothing appears in the Connection tab

    "This page can't be displayed.
    • Make sure the web address http://go.microsoft.com is correct.
    • Look for the page with your search engine.
    • Refresh the page in a few minutes

    To enable more detailed HTTP error messages go to Settings (gear) | Internet Options | Advanced. Uncheck "show friendly HTTP error messages".

    On the Connections tab "press" the "LAN settings" button.

    You mean after you unchecked "Show friendly..." you did not get any more information about the HTTP error?

    I think it's time to give up and wait for a working version. I've wasted too much time already.

    This will happen if you failed to reboot after installing IE10. With IE updates, several core Windows components are affected.

    Ok, I decided to try out IE10 on my W7 machine, and quite frankly on the surface I don't see any notable differences between IE9 and IE10. I guess I was expecting something more along the lines of what it shows in W8 and on my phone. Oh well, one notable difference I found was that at least the spell check works again now on this site..... LOL
    Thanks John
