IE Page cannot load, Operation Aborted

Question: IE Page cannot load, Operation Aborted

This is driving me crazy. In IE when I go to some sites the site pulls up and then I get this error message that states:

"Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site "the site goes here"

Operation Aborted"

I can go back an keep refreshing the site and it will load with no problem, but it is very frustrating. I am also having an issue with my hompage changing for no reason. I have ran the hijack this, and here are the results.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Preferred Solution: IE Page cannot load, Operation Aborted

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: IE Page cannot load, Operation Aborted

Click on the link below and it will download CWShredder. Close all browser windows. UnZip it and click on the cwshredder.exe and let it do it's thing.

When it is finished restart your computer.

Run Hijack This again and put a check by any of these that are left. Close all browser windows and "Fix checked"

Make sure you also get the latest reference file.

Run the program and let it fix everything it finds.

When I try to navigate to certain sites I receive the following error "Internet Explorer cannot display the page - operation aborted". Additionally, my start menu no longer populates with recently used programs. I believe both problems are a result of contracting an xp anti-spy 2011 virus, which I was able to remove but these problems still linger. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks.

Question: Operation Aborted

I was wondering why sometimes I try to go into a website and it says "Internet Explorer cant open the website-Operation Aborted". This happens sometimes and it never happened before.

Answer:Operation Aborted

What have you done recently to your PC?Can you use another browser?You can go to and check to see if the web site you want is a bad site.Don't go to bad sites. They really can mess with your PC in a bad way. If that was the problem, be glad you found out.But if  that is not the problem, come back here with a list of good sites you can not enter, and let others check them out.

We have a Toshiba P200 laptop and have been connecting it wirelessly to a computer in another room for the internet. The laptop runs Vista Home Premium. Most websites work fine, but some it seems to have a real problem with. I keep getting "Internet Explorer cannot open the internet site -such and such - operation aborted." But I can see the page I want behind the error message so it's loaded most of the page. Clicking OK takes me to the cannot display page where no connetion problems can be found. I checked that SSL and TLS (whatever they are) are enabled as suggested. Is it my browser or my security settings messing things up? It's very annoying to see the page you want behind the error message, then when you click on it you're whisked away to the "cannot display" page. Any ideas?

Answer:Operation keeps getting aborted

Starting a new focused thread on a problem I have been having while on the internet. At random times while navigating using links from the page I am reading, I get "Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site (the site I am trying to link to). Operation aborted." When this happens, sometimes I can click out of that box, go back or refresh and it picks up the page I was trying to get to. Sometimes I get the standard "Unable to connect" screen and have to close IE and start over, but not often. This happens on any type of site, youtube, speedtv and even here while switching forums. I have been helped greatly here by Billy3 and have a clean system as far as any malware is concerened. I have other issues as well but thought I would start over with this as it annoys all who use this computer( 2 people) while the other issues only bug me! Thanks.

Question: OPeration aborted

Recieved a reformatted computer with internet explorer. Normally the person said that when they reformated it, it works fine. I turned on the internet after seting up internet explorer and quickly closed it without paying attention (After clicking not to personalize a toobar or putting that I would install flash later). Suddenly went off with a pop up saying aportation aborted and it went to can not display webpage. Put it on a few times same thing but then suddenly it went on normally. (I then googled fore firefox download) Should I be worried or was this a scripting glitch in internet explorer. It never happened before.

Hello all,

Love the site - Noviciate helped me out with a rootkit virus on another sub-board, and everything is working fine in that respect. However, lately, I've been having an "Operation Aborted" popup in IE8, running Windows XP SP3. I recall this problem happening randomly since before the rootkit problem, but really noticed an increase in frequency starting yesterday - I've removed temp. internet files, restored IE8 defaults, but those didn't work. Even this site causes the error. Firefox works, but I'd like IE8 working as well. Any help will be appreciated - this is a great site!

I have been getting this error on another site, and ONLY that site:
View attachment 119269

(this is a zip file)

I open the page, log in, and when the page is almost 99% loaded, I get that error, and then the page is closed. Now, no problem with the other web pages, they stay open, and I can continue with no problem.. Only this one site, I am having difficulties, and I have contacted the site admin., but no answers yet... I think myself, it is a site problem, and not my system, but thought to run it by you anyway.... It only happens on that one, and if the browser itself closed, I'd be more concerned, but it is only that one page.... Any thoughts? :confused

Now, I am using windows XP IE7 and SP3.. All updates are up to date...
I run my trend Micro every day, it is updated every day, and nothing has been found.. System is clean...

PS: I do my computer maintenance regularly.

Answer:Weird error - Operation aborted...

The actual error on the site is

Clear your cookies. It seems that there is only a problem at that site when you try and login. It could be a corrupt cookie for that site only. Since I'm not a member, I can't login to test if it is the site.

try uninstalling the software before reinstalling it. it sounds like there is some program running in the background that is interfering with your printing software. if you want to be safe, i would uninstall in safe mode.

Okay I have a user that used to have an HP 5600 series USB printer. This was giving her problems (on both a parallel port and on a USB port). So she went out and bought a HP 6127. Now I have installed printer drivers 100's of times over without a problem (especially when its from a CD supplied with the printer). This time I followed the instructions and I get to pick the drivers and it starts to copy the files and it goes ot the following error.

Cannot Install this Hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware
HPDeskjet 6127
An Error Occured During the Installation of this device.
The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request.

I have done google searches and checked the HP website an found nothing. I know the USB portion is working fine because i have a USB mouse in one port and have even swapped it to make sure its not the port. As well I uninstalled and reinstalled the USB printing service from the Device manager with no change in the error. There are no other local printers but a bunch of network printers none of them on local ports. This 6127 does not have any parrallel connection so I can't even change it to see if its a bad port on the printer side.

Any other ideas?

I recently installed the Action Replay Code Manager onto my Windows XP via installation directly from the disc. Later, when I plugged my Action Replay Ds usb link into my computer, there was a yellow exclamation mark next to the hardware in the device manager. The error message turned out to be: "The drivers for this device are not installed". I inserted the installation CD and it began to install the drivers when the message in the question above popped up, cancelling the installation. I have tried everything from reinstalling the cd and cable to deleting my Temp directory and disabling many of my antivirus programs during the process. Nothing seems to work. I would truly benefit from a website pointing me to the right path or preferably help from someone right here on the forums!:laughing: :laughing:

I know I have a virus again Or have NOT fully rid myself of one I thought I had eliminated weeks ago. I noticed that I was having trouble accessing some web sites when I was logged on as ME. It appeared to be shut me out alphbetically. As I could not access and then I AM able to function if I log on as the administrator but I am worried that this thing will disable this "side" as well. A friend suggested that something has wormed itself into my Registry... I am not savvy enough to know what to do about that. He said to run The Non Pro version of Glary Utilities or The Online Safety Scanner. I am did run Glary and it found 506 errors but one has to BUY their product to completely rid myself of the errors. ALSO I have Secunia installed and it continues to warn me that I have programs that are insecure or at end-of life, but when I click on "Solution", it will not connect so I do not know what to do to correct the problems. .... so here I am again.

Today I went on one of the sites that I regularly go onto, but the site kept saying 'internet explorer cannot connect to the site, operation aborted' very often whenever I tried to load a different page. It mainly seemed to be happening on one page in particular and all the other sites I go onto were alright so I assumed it was just the site.

However, another site I usually go onto just had the same error a couple of minutes ago and I am not starting to get a bit worried that there may be something wrong with IE or my computer. The problem still mainly seems to be happening on that one site in particular and the error only occurred once on the other site and I have loaded quite a lot of pages on that site very recently.

Basically I just want to ask, has anyone else been having problems with IE saying this error message recently? And if not, does anyone have any ideas on how to fix my issue? If it helps, the site that I was having problems with was

Answer:[SOLVED] IE cannot connect to site, operation aborted problems

I would like to update my internet explorer as well as my vista system but i donot have enough hard disk space to accomodate vista updates which are needed for internet explorer upgrades. I did try to upgrade to internet explorer 8 but i got the message that my system doesnot support this upgrade.

The reason i wanted the upgrade is that i have for the past 6 months tried to log into but when i enter my details a message pops up everytime stating

"internet explorer cannot open the internet site
operation aborted."

This has happened multiple times when i tried to access and to name a few.
Also frequently internet explorer crashes when i am visiting sites like and when logging into my yahoo mail account. Then i have to open task manager, end program and i have clicked on find solution online with no answer and that my problem has been reported to microsoft. There has been no feedback or support from microsoft.

So now i choose close this program and use firefox to browse.

In summary, i cannot install all the updates e.g SP 1 for vista so can you provide me with links to individual updates that are necessary for internet explorer upgrade.

I stupidly aborted an Acronis restore, now windows will not load.The screen stays in DOS and askes for a boot floppy. I have tried booting with the Acronis disc but this does not show my USB drive in options.Windows repair has also failed with an error message of invalid drive path.Is a clean install my only option and,will I be able to reload Acronis and access my images afterwards.Many thanks

Answer:Aborted Acronis restore XP won't load

If you have Acronis CD you should be able to boot with that, then restore the Image you aborted. If the Image is on a CD you will have to change the CD's over after Acronis As loaded into Memory. That's why I only run Acronis from a Rescue CD that I created in Acronis I then boot with the CD and restore ether from another Partition or USB external Drive. Do's the above give you any Ideas?

Hi everyone,

For the last few months I have been getting BSOD's with increasing regularity.
After attempting to flash my bios, reinstall drivers and running a memtest I have decided to come to you guys before going for a clean install.

The BSOD's occur seemingly randomly however, it seems they are more common when I am doing something simple like browsing the web or listening to music and less likely while gaming.

I have a Toshiba Qosimo x505 bought new in 2010 (my first issue I know) specs being:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Intel Core i7 Q740
Nvidia GeForce GTS 360M

I have a very simple web page that automatically updates daily. However, very often when I view it I just get the version that is in my browser cache rather than the latest version from the web. I have to do a manual refresh from the browser to see the latest version. Not a problem for me, but other viewers of the page may not realize they aren't seeing the latest information.

Is there an HTML tag or some such that can be included in the page that will force a refresh and override any old version that the viewer may still have in their browser cache?

Hopefully someone can help me on this and won't have bad news. Ok so i have a 500gb Seagate SATA hard drive. For some reason when vista is loading it takes forever. it used to load after around 3 seconds. This has happened before and i cleaned the Nforce drivers and re-installed and the issue went away and havent had a problem till the other day the system hung up while playing crysis and upon re-boot the hard drive started the long load times. But when in vista or doing anything after the system is loaded is fine and i have no issues. I have tried uninstalling drivers using driver sweeper ect and then re-installing drivers with no luck. Has anyone had this issue before. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Question: Won't load a page.

In fact, it won't even recognize that there's material on the page to load. It's very strange. I need to log into a certain website for my housing application for university (it's a ".jsp"), and after I enter the information I just get a pure blank mozilla screen. Very strange. I tried with IE 7 and have the same problem. I tried fiddling around with the security levels on each but that did nothing.

I doubt there truly is nothing on the university website... what do you think the problem is?

Answer:Won't load a page.

Check all your security software, browser addons, firewall settings, etc to see which one is blocking javascripts, java or scripts (the wording might be different depending on the program).

For example, I use the NoScript addon for Firefox. With it enabled, all scripts are blocked so a .jsp site would appear blank. When I disable NoScript, the page loads as normal.

Question: load up page

srry know that this pob dosnt go here but maybe ill get a respnce quicker

is there any way to make a new page load as soon as i make a page load kinda like a popup(im not making a pop up) ?

example: i load then another page loads over that without the viewer clicking anything

Answer:load up page

A window which loads soon after another and in front of it is called a "popup". Not all popups are bad. In fact, the problem with most popup stoppers is that it kills the good ones, too.

Make a popup window yourself here and then see an example of the script:

hi there, i hope someone can help me, i recently purchased a advent 4211 net book for work , as i am a plumber i need to get onto a certain web site called - no problems on my desk top comes up straight away, but not on my 4211 the green status bar fills up to the end and then just stays there 4ever !!! i have set my security to (low) enabled firewall and deleted all my cookies, i am using a 3g pay as u go dongle, someone mentioned i should enable cookies but i cant find this, can anyone help as this is driving me mad.
ps all other web sites load up straight away. many thanks

Answer:cannot get a certain web page to load !!!


If cookies being disabled is the problem, you should be getting a blank page with some very small writing stating this from that website: "Welcome to the Partscenter Web site.
We have detected that cookies are disabled on your browser.
Please enable them and reload the page, or the site will not function correctly".

Anyway, to enable cookies, this is how:

From internet explorer: Tools > Internet Options. Within the Internet Options window: Privacy tab > Select a setting for the internet zone > set privacy level to Medium. Failing that, for test reasons, lower the slider right to the bottom to 'accept all cookies'.

Whether it works or not, please post results on here.

I have a web page that I have opened many times in the past but now it will momentarily open then disappear. I have tried changing the IE settings,and shutting off the AV and other securities but so far no luck. I would appreciate suggestions.

Answer:Web page won't load

Does anything show in the task bar at all? Sometimes they get minimized and you have to right click on it and then click on maximize.

Other than that, my second thought would be viral. If you'd like to check out that aspect, then please do this. Click here: to download Hijack This.

It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.

I have an (older) internet pen pal with dialup. She runs IE 7 on a Win 7 Home Premium system. (OIK...I'll send her an IE 8 CD)

Meantime, there are certain pages she just can't open - for instance:

Learn where menu and toolbar commands are in Office 2010 and related products - Support - Microsoft Office

She can't tell me any reason - like error messages - only that they won't display. (She's not very tech savvy)

I was assuming that it would not be security setting, being an MS page and all, but I don't know enough about this stuff.

Anyone else know?

IE8 comes automatically with Windows 7, unless she bought the OS recently in Europe, where this is forbidden by European Union. Nevertheless, I fail to see why she would use IE7...

I cannot even reload the homepage after this happens. I have found that if I delete the cookies from that site, I can reload the login screen and sign back in, but it acts the same as before. I am using Firefox, and when I try it in IE, the homepage won't even load.

I went to the library at school and loaded the page fine, so it isn't the website. I was even using the U3 Firefox browser on my flash drive in the computer at school when it worked, and that same U3 browser won't work at home.

I am set up on a wireless connection through a Linksys router, and what I have read that may be a source of the problem. I have tried disabling the firewall on the router but that didn't work. This is the only website I have ever had trouble with so I really have no idea what to do.

I've been working with the hard drive forum after my older Gateway computer crashed, and they've helped me install the drive, re-load the software, add SpyBot, etc. but now I have a problem with IE 6.0, where I can't get to open so I can check my email. I've been able to get other sites to come up, however, when I type in the address and hit go nothing happens (other than the text highlights in blue). I checked under Privacy and cookie handling and was listed. I checked allow (didn't help), and then deleted it (still didn't help). I tried lowering security to low (didn't work). Is there something else I should do? When I went out to the Microsoft web site, I saw that there is a IE 6.0 sp1 available which I haven't downloaded yet, but I'm not sure that it will help, since I can get other web sites to open. Any assistance you can provide will be appreciated!

Answer:IE 6.0 won't load web page

Hi Cktrout5,
I am not a network guru, but I would download IE6 sp1 and see what happens. This should not have any ill effects on the OS and it will not only repair your IE6 (if thats the problem), but will give you better security and performance. I would also download all the Updates at the Microsoft Update site (if you have not done that already). What firewall and anti virus are you using? This may help the network guys out if they knew that.
