    Basically this is a coding fault on the webpage you are visiting and not related to your laptop specifically, if you want the science bit try the last entry here:

    What website is it? You may want to get FireFox and trying it from there. Maybe your network has it blocked off by means of proxy. To fix it, use a proxy against them:

    1. Go to

    2. Type website into address bar in the website

    3. If that doesn't work, maybe the website is jacked over or the server is down. You may want to see if it runs on a different computer.

    I hate to be useless here, but I'm in the same boat. If anyone has a definitive answer, please email me. Edit: Okay I thought that it must have been one of the updates. I got both a Windows update and an iTunes update yesterday. I removed the Windows update, the site still aborted (whoops, hope I didn't need that). I removed the Apple Mobile Device Support, same thing. I removed the latest version of iTunes, which was updated yesterday and reinstalled it. Same problem. Screw Internet Explorer. I'm pissed.
