Internet Explorer operation aborted

Specs: Windows 98 SE, Intel Pentium II (300 Mhz
Sometimes when I am browsing the web, particularly this site, I get some pop up error message that says "Internet Explorer cannot open [URL HERE]. Operation Aborted". If I press OK, then the page changes from the halfway loaded page to the cannot find server thing. If I press refresh, the page loads fine. This is not a big problem but it is pretty annoying. What would be causing this?

Thanks,
Faris,

Most sites (this one included) have pop-up ads to help pay for the sites existence. Especially help forums. You may have a malware program blocking certain things like this, or a hosts file doing the same which is giving the initial "error".

If you're running 98SE, I assume you're running IE6.x, with the 128 bit encryption pack, & SP1. I'd check the Options Settings of any malware/spyware utilities you may have running first. Then look into an IE repair which can be accessed through Control Panel, System, Tools, IE Repair. (I'm currently booted into W2K right now so this is by memory, apologies if the route is wrong.)

It's a good day when you learn something

For IE Repair go to:

"Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs" then double click the entry "Microsoft IE & Tools". This should give the option.

As always, there are several other ways.

You got close Dan - no Tools option there on 9x.

No, I'm running IE 5.5 (5.50.4134.0600IC), I don't use IE 6.

I've already ran Spybot and ad-aware and such and nothing has been found. Is this just a by product of the specific version of IE I'm using? I have a Win ME computer with IE 5.5 and the digits are different than the ones I have on here and I don't get the error on there. Also, it tells me I have a custom version of IE.

No, I don't have a "repair IE" option or anything about IE in the add/remove listings. There were listings back when it had IE 6 but I reverted back to IE 5.5 and it disappeared. Also, I do not wish to reinstall IE.

Thanks,
Faris,

~That's~ where it usually is; systemINFO/tools, not system/tools. Thanks jubalsams. But as the poster said, it may not be there for IE5.5, I don't remember back that far. (5.5)

From what I recall IE Repair is there if you have ever updated from that installed with W98SE.
