Hi Folks,

I am running XP w/SP3.... Of late the I.E. browser hangs and then freezes. Mostly on Facebook but not exclusively. This causes the need for repetative hard boots. Have scanned the disc,defragged.

Still it freezes. I am also getting false ,"Scripting" error messages...

Also getting this message repetatively.."Internet Explorer cannot download yql from analytics.query.yahoo.com"

"Internet Explorer was not able to open this interent site The requested site is either un-available or cannot be found" ...This message appears over the page as it loads anyway..????

Also getting false scripting error messages..."Out of memory on line ....."

Sure would appreciate some assistance

Thanks,
Ken

Finally follow the steps below and your issue should be resolved.

  • Hit the Start button then.

  • Properties
  • Harwdare Tab
  • Device Manager.
  • Scroll down to the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controlers Left click the + to the left of the drivers.
  • Right Click and uninstall all of your Primary IDE drivers.
  • There most likely will be more than one of the Primary IDE Drivers!!
  • Make sure and un-install All of them prior to rebooting.
  • Reboot the machine.
  • Another request will be made to reboot after the initial.
  • Reboot again.
