How to Prevent Internet Explorer Errors

Jul 3, 2008
Internet Explorer errors are some of the most common error messages received by users, and the cause of these errors can be widely varied. Any user who receives error messages may assume that there is something wrong with their system, but this is not always the case.

There are a few things that you can do to minimize and prevent these errors from occurring, regardless of what the main cause of these messages are. One of the most seen Internet Explorer error messages is the 52 Runtime Error message, and it is caused by connectivity problems usually, because the script is unable to locate the file it is seeking.

Another Internet Explorer error seen frequently is the Bad File Request, and this is commonly caused by the URL syntax being incorrect. An Unauthorized error is your system telling you that your computer can not provide the encryption required by the site server, or that you did not enter the correct password. The error Forbidden/Access Denied means that you do not have the needed permission to access the website.

Ways To Prevent Internet Explorer Errors

No matter what is causing your Internet Explorer errors, there are some steps you can follow to stop them, and make your computer work more effectively than ever. These errors can be very annoying, but stopping them is easy if you know how. The first step is to remove any unused programs and applications. Many home computers may come already loaded with many different software programs, and some of these may not be needed, wanted, or even used. Removing any programs you do not want or use can help clean up your system and prevent Internet Explorer errors, as well as making your system faster and more effective.

Keep your PC secure by running software to detect and remove any spyware, viruses, worms, Trojans, and other security threats. These electronic infections can cause error messages, damage to your system, programs which will not open or work properly, programs which disappear, a very slow computer, and a loss of performance. Make sure you check for updates frequently so that your malicious software definitions are current, and include the latest threats. Scan your system daily, especially if your Internet connection is high speed.

An essential step to keeping your PC free from Internet Explorer error messages is to use a registry cleaner program. These programs are very beneficial, especially if you are trying to eliminate Internet Explorer errors. The only other option is to manually edit the registry, and this is both dangerous and time consuming. With manual editing, the the risks are high that the wrong entry or key will be altered or removed, and this can have a huge effect on your operating system. Because of the extremely large size, it may take weeks or more to edit your registry manually, plus a lot of hard work.

A registry cleaner software program will edit your registry quickly and efficiently, most of the time within minutes of starting. These programs are developed to safely remove any fragments and unnecessary entries in the registry, and these entries and keys are one of the main reasons for Internet Explorer error messages to be displayed.
