Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

AOL Information AOL has a compression feature built into the browser that compresses all the graphics you view on a web site. The following info will assist you in turning off this feature. Doing so will allow you to download graphics off of this site that are uncompressed. You will also find your viewing pleasure enhanced by the fact that you will hopefully be able to see the graphics as intended by the designer. AOL's default in Internet Explorer for Web Graphics is "Compressed". That can be changed by going in "My AOL" and then Preferences. Go to WWW, which will bring up the Internet Explorer preferences. Click on the tab for "Web Graphics" and then click to remove the Check Mark on "Use Compressed Graphics" It does help. You may also run Netscape Navigator while logged on to AOL and it gives a good presentation of web sites.

I recive message on start the computer "Internet explorer 6 security prihibit runing ActiveX controls" and i do not view the filles, any filles!


Hi there,

cause:

This issue occurs if the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration feature is enabled. By default, the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration feature is enabled in Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2003-based computers.

This enhanced level of security may prevent certain Web sites from displaying as expected in Internet Explorer. For example, programs that require the Web browser may not work as expected because scripts, ActiveX controls, and downloads are disabled.

Resolution:

To resolve this issue, add the following Macromedia Web sites
  • http://www.macromedia.com
  • http://fpdownload.macromedia.com
  • http://sdc.shockwave.com
to the Trusted sites zone in Internet Explorer. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer (if it is not already running).
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the Security tab.
  4. Under Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings, click Trusted sites, and then click Sites.
  5. In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type http://www.macromedia.com, and then click Add, type http://fpdownload.macromedia.com.
  6. Click Add, type http://sdc.shockwave.com, and then click Add.

    The Macromedia Web sites are displayed in the Web sites list.
  7. Click Close, and then click OK.
Good to know information:

The Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration feature configures several security settings that define how you access Internet and intranet Web sites. The configuration also reduces the exposure of your server to Web sites that may pose a security risk. To log on to a Web site that requires Internet Explorer functionality that is disabled by the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration feature, add that Web site to the Trusted sites zone in Internet Explorer.

For more information about Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration, see the Internet Explorer "Enhanced Security Configuration" Help topic. To do so (on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003), start Internet Explorer, and then on the Help menu, click Enhanced Security Configuration.

How do I clear cache using Netscape? Question : Answer : help_a.gif Cache files, or Temporary Internet Files in Microsoft Windows 95 or higher, are copies of files sent to your web browser and stored on your computer so that when you access a web site (such as PayPal) at a later date, it will load much faster.

To set the size of the memory cache or clear it in Windows or Unix, follow these steps:
