Internet Explorer problems
As I had mentioned in one of my previous posts, my computer was recently infected with a spyware. I had to reimage my PC. For some reason, after I reinstalled Internet Explorer 7, I kept getting the following message every time I would go to sites like Yahoo finance etc:

"Internet Explorer cannot open the internet site"..."Operation aborted".

The error was quite annoying as I had to click the OK button several times to get rid of it and this happened every time I tried to go to some of the sites.

I checked various messages on the internet but couldn't find the solution. I even uninstalled and reinstalled IE7 but that didn't solve the problem.

Ultimately, through a friend's friend, I found out that such an error was likely caused by Skype plug-in on my system although it can also be caused by Yahoo or Google toolbars. To get rid of the message, I needed to disable a couple of add-ons from Skype by going to the Tools menu in Internet Explorer and clicking "Manage Add-Ons" followed by "Enable or disable Add-ons". I had to disable 2 or 3 add-ons from Skype and then close and reopen Internet Explorer and that resolved the problem. The disabling of add-ons didn't impact Skype - it still works fine.
