    Hi there,
    I keep getting this message poping up in a message box when I
    try to go to a web site in IE7. When you click on OK and refresh the page
    it will usually load OK. Whyis it aborting the operation when the web site
    is clearly available?

  2. Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista x64 SP2) when
    posting to this newsgroup.

    Is this a sudden, new problem? Is the machine fully-patched at Windows


    1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode? To start
    IE in No Add-ons mode:

    => Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without
    Add-ons; or

    => Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
    Explorer (No add-ons).

    Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:

    2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)? <= Read before using!

    3. Does the behavior persist if you boot into Safe Mode with Networking?
    [Careful! Only remain in Safe Mode just long enough to test!]

    4a. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    4b. Has a Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine
    (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)?

    This error is generally caused by javascript in the page attempting to
    modify a container before it's been fully generated, and is often caused by
    external content being loaded into the page (adverts, for instance). The
    javascript is being aborted, but anything already loaded into the page
    should remain there.
