Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Start bar has disappeared and I can't connect to the internet. Most of my other programs such as Adobe, Word, and Excel still work fine. My Real Player works but my Windows Media Player won't. Any ideas what I can do to fix it? It is a Gateway Laptop (MX6440 I think - my computer isn't with me right now).

    I haven't tried to reinstall or repair the operating system (XP). I was told I would lose all my data (thousands of pictures). Is there a way to do this without losing my data? I have tried to copy the pictures into a portable hard drive, but the drop and drag and send to aren't working. The only way I can save a file to the portable drive is to open it, then SAVE AS. That would take me forever.

These days every programs have started explaining things by showing you a video clips which requires downloading through a software called adobe flash player. The process of downloading is quite time...


Adobe Flash Player is an add-on on browsers like Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. it plays a vital part in playing video clips as it is interpreting the video file to play on the browser. Also you can update to the latest version so that you will be able to watch video clips automatically. One thing that might be the cause of the slow download is your internet connection. You can ask assistance from your Internet Service Provider to check what is the speed of your Internet. You can get the latest Adobe Flash Player from Adobe.com and by clicking on the link on the right part of the page to download the latest version of Flash Player.

Google Earth disappeared after updating Adobe Reader 9


Try to do a system restore, this should help you to get the application back. On the start search, type restore, select system restore, on the system restore screen choose the option which says select another restore point, hit next, choose the restore point when the system was working fine, hit next, let the computer go through the restore process. When computer restarts normally, you should be able to use the google earth.

Adobe flash player quit working


This problem is most likely related to a Windows Vista permissions issue. Because Vista has security features to prevent scumbag spammers and spyware from infesting your computer, programs will not automatically install themselves. I have had success by logging into Vista as an administrator, then installing whatever programs I wanted, then logging back in under my normal usage account. Sometimes simply being in the administrator account is not enough, but I hope this gets you in the right direction.
