Hello all,

I used proxy switcher to access oversea website that blocked US ip address.
Now that I don't need it anymore, I uninstalled proxy switcher.
Next thing I know, I get the message on internet explore "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
Internet is connected and I can use Fire Fox w/o any problem.

Any idea what's going on and how I may be able to fix this?
Thanks!

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

Try either of the below...

Reset Internet Explorer:

  • Please download this Microsoft FixIt and save it to the desktop.
  • Double click on MicrosoftFixit50195.exe select I Agree and click on Next.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts.
  • You may delete MicrosoftFixit50195.exe when finished and or keep it if any problems in the future with IE.
  • Next time IE is launched you will be prompted to reapply settings again, this is normal.
Note: Any add-ons will require to be reapplied(though no need to reapply Proxy Switcher if mentioned) after the above reset.

Remove IE Proxy:

Launch Internet Explorer, click on >> Tools >> Internet Options >> Connections Tab >> Lan Settings >> deselect Use a proxy server for your LAN >> OK etc etc.
