Basically my internet explorer doesn't work. It just hangs on loading pages and eventually gets this error:

"This program 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."

I can still access the internet through chrome and Firefox though so it's an IE issue. I also can play online games fine.

Anyway, programs like Skype that use IE to load stuff such as adding contacts doesn't work. I have tried the following things:
-Reset internet explorer
-Downgraded to IE8

I am running windows 7 32 bit and am on cable. Any ideas on what I can do?

It could be an add on that is causing the problem, try disabling all add on's.

Believe or not, my brother in law and his wife in their early to mid 50's let me their laptop to check something and I had 2 inches to see the page. I have seen it about 5 times bad like that. And I am not a technician on PC.
