What is it with Vista and IE7? Can't pull up nbc.com???

J

Joseph Geretz

lenovo X61t (laptop / tablet)
Vista Business
IE 7 - won't pull up nbc.com
Firefox - no problem!

Is this a side effect of some sort of paternalistic code inserted into IE to
keep me 'safe' on the Internet? Well thanks, but no thanks!

I'm not the only one, it seems:

And how come there's no IE7 group on this server? Has Microsoft given up on
the product?

Thanks for your help.

And I can't pull up www.discovercard.com using vista and both IE7 and IE8.
This started happening last week. I suspect something MS did to us!!!

No problem here using IE7 on Vista Ultimate w/SP1. I have not installed IE8
beta. Did the problem start after you installed IE8 beta? Financial sites
have historically been slow to allow new browsers. If you uninstall IE8 or
reinstall Vista what are your results?

Before anyone wastes their time on this, the problem is with tablet PCs and
when accessing NBC the results are this:

"Going to the IP address for nbc.com (64.210.192.67) comes up with a
page that simply says "It works!""

I suggest the OP contact NBC to determine the issue. Their site is doing
something funky.

The problem started last week after a round of MS updates. I was on IE7 at
the time. Installed IE8 and problem still exists. I don't expect removing
IE8 will solve it.

Hi PNutts,

Are you able to pull up nbc.com?

Some of the participants in that discussion which I linked to,
http://forums.techarena.in/showthread.php?t=921856, have speculated that
the problem with nbc.com is restricted to Vista tablet OS, wich is what I am
running.

Thanks,

Have you tested this? I didn't see that behavior. I am seeing identical
behavior for both http://64.210.192.67 and http://www.nbc.com.

In Firefox both of these render the page, in IE neither of these work at
all. Internet Explorer cannot display the web page.

Here's what happens in a VB program which I whipped up with an embedded
browser control to see what happens when browsing to nbc.com. Is it the
cross-site access to weatherplus.com which is perhaps throwing IE into a
panic?

It's some kind of cross-domain problem.

I threw nbc.com into my trusted sites. No change. I threw weatherplus.com
into my trusted sites. Now when I browse to nbc.com I wait, and wait and
wait - Waiting for http://www.nbc.com/...

I'm not a big fan of Firefox. But here's one that they got right.

Both the IP address and nbc.com load normally for me. The information was

Follow up for anyone who is *not* experiencing the problem:

Are you on a Tablet? From the conversation in the link which I posted,
respondents have speculated that the problem is exclusive to Tablet edition.
If you are on Vista Tablet edition using IE7 and not experiencing the
problem that would at least give me the encouragement that the problem can
be solved.

Thanks,

I downloaded XP Tablet from MSDN and installing in a virtual machine. I'll
try to access NBC and post my results. My assumption is that if the problem
is with IE then I should experience the issue even though I'm not on tablet
hardware. We'll see if I'm right or not. Regardless of my results that
difference may be important.

Sorry for the delay... Life keeps getting in the way. ;)

I cannot load NBC (http://www.nbc.com) from the XP Tablet version running in
a virtual machine. For me, the browser simply times out and gives the generic
"Page cannot be displayed" error message. I can load all the other sites I
usually go to. I haven't loaded anything that isn't on the XP install disks.
:) This is a completely generic install.

Thanks for running that test!

It seems as though there is something unique to both XP and Vista - Tablet
editions which prevent IE 7 from pulling up nbc.com.

So far, I don't think we've heard from anyone on the tablet platform who is
able to pull up nbc.com in IE7.

Thanks,

FWIW: I did submit a technical support request on the NBC site for assistance
with this issue. My expectations that this will produce results are low, but
they may surprise me!

FYI, I'm having the same problems on nbc.com. I can access
Discovercard.com and SI.com no problem though. NBC.com is the only
site I have a problem with. I am running a Toshiba M700 tablet pc
running Vista Business and IE7. I've looked high and low for a
soloution and I've only seen your post. I don't think I had a problem
a month ago but regardless no nbc.com now. I've had this problem for
at least two or three weeks now. I had already tried removing
protected mode, adding nbc.com to a trusted site list, restoring
defaults, disabling addons, and more. No success so far.
