Internet Explorer Troubleshooting

Before troubleshooting Pandora in Internet Explorer, please check that your system meets our Minimum Specifications to run Pandora.

If you are having trouble using Pandora with Internet Explorer, many times quitting your browser completely, re-opening it and going back to http://www.pandora.com can help.
 
To check if this is a browser-related issue, first try to open Pandora in a separate browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
 
If you prefer Internet Explorer as your browser, please try the following steps to troubleshoot Pandora:

1. Install the Chrome Frame Plugin: http://www.google.com/chromeframe (You don't need administrative privileges to install this)
 
2. Clear your browser's Temporary Internet Files, Cookies, and History by going to Tools and selecting Delete Browsing History. Then select and delete each.
 
3. Install the latest version of the Flash player: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
 
4.  Finally, restart your computer and go to www.pandora.com to see if that helps.
