IE7 wont display certain web pages
PLEASE say someone else has come across this.
On some machines, IE7 wont display certain web sites, the most common one reported is Edexcel's.
You just get
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.
Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the internet
The website is encountering problems
There might be a typing error in the address
Well, it certainly isnt any of those things, the site works perfectly on most machines.
It isnt just a certain type of machine either (which could of pointed to a bad installation of IE on an image) it seems fairly random
If there is a lot happening on the PC and its running slowly, you'll sometimes even see the Edexcel page rendered for half a second before the error appears. Until I saw this I thought this was a network problem, like the machines couldnt resolve the right IP address, but the fact it is briefly being displayed rules that out
It makes no sense, I cant recreate it because it just seems to happen randomly.
Uninstalling IE7 fixes it, but as soon as you put IE7 back, the problem reoccurs
Getting very annoying now
