Website loads in Chrome but not Internet Explorer?
Yahoo.com and any site relative to Yahoo does not load in Internet Explorer. I don't have it in front of me but I get the generic "website not available" or something. Same message I would get if I didn't have a connection period. It loads totally fine in Chrome, however. Any other website I've tried works fine in Internet Explorer.
I've uninstalled/reinstalled IE 9 (current Vista version). I've checked the hosts file, nothing blocked. No viruses, drivers/all software up to date. No add-ons/extensions. Completely disabled Avast and it still happens.
It is a laptop for a senior citizen. Upgrading to 10 isn't ideal from a usage perspective but I might present it as the only option.
What am I missing? I'm sure it is something simple. As always, rep for helpful info!
