Within the last 48 hours, when opening IE7, I've started getting the error message window saying "Internet Explorer cannot open the web site xxxxx".
This happens randomly about 3 times out of 5, AND YET using a shortcut or Favourite link to any web site there is no problem at all. Further, after closing the error message window, clicking on the Home icon brings IE up just fine and further browsing is not hindered in any way.
The internet is full of people with this problem dating back literally decades, lots of suggestions, but no single solution other than talk about HTML coding on the web site that IE cannot interpret correctly, along with suggestions to use another brand of web browser.
Just to test my/their paranoia, I changed the usual home page of Google to Microsoft's, and guess what .... no more problem!
Any ideas what may be happening, or how to fix?
