    I don't know. How do I find out?

    Firefox, but i've also tried IE 7, IE 8 Beta, and am now back to IE 6. I've updated my drivers. Have Nvidia GeForce Ti4200

    I appreciate the time you are taking on this.

    Uninstalled Spy Sweeper. Didn't help.

    Can't completely turn off my firewall. I click off and it says it's off, but when I open security center it says it's on.

  • Trudy Caswell Oct 06, 2008

    When you said to check my firewall I didn't know that my router had a firewall. After getting a new computer and still having the same problems, I was about to pull my hair out. I realized the only thing the two computers had in common was the connection, but still didn't get it. Finally I stumbled across something that made me check and discovered the router firewall.

    It's Westell, and my ISP is centurytel (DSL). Westell's site has, right on the first page, big as the bailout, "Firewall". Of course, as soon as I turned it off my troubles were solved.

    Thanks for trying to help me. If I'd known what you were talking about I wouldn't have blown up my old computer trying stupid stuff.

    I just hope this helps somebody else some time.

    So far from what you tell me you shouldn't be having any problems.  What kind of antivirus software do you have?  You might try temporarily disabling it and then see if you can get a big fish game to run.

  • jkgstl May 11, 2010

    Okay, your computer should be able to handle Java okay, what web browser do you use to surf the internet?

  • jkgstl May 11, 2010

    Right click on My Computer with your mouse and then click properties.

    Java tends to be a resource hog, how much RAM(memory) do you have installed?

I am trying to open a yahoo email account not facebook not google is it possible

Hello there!

I would first ensure that your java is up-to-date by visiting:

Download and install the latest java which is appropriate for your operating system, then restart your PC.

I would also recommend clearing your internet cache and cookies, by downloading and installing "CCleaner":,1.html

When installing the program, be sure to uncheck any "extras" it tries to offer you. Start up CCleaner, and run a cleaning on your computer.. being sure that it is set to clean internet cookies, cache, etc.. Make sure that you don't have any web browsing programs (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox) running!! Run the process. Once it finishes, close the program.

Start up a web browser. I recommend Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.. (NEVER Internet Explorer!!)

Try to access your yahoo email. If it works, great!! If not, I (like most of the other answers here) would HIGHLY recommend that you just do the wise and safe thing.. and create a gmail account.. It's free, and FARRRR more safe and secore than yahoo.

I hope my answer helps!

It is possible that you have a stale cookie on your system. Logging in will put a cookie on the system, so try cleaning your cookies or using a different browser. There have also been some recent upgrades to the PayPal home page and some JSP or CSS file didn't load and is causing the login to hang.

Download, delete and reinstall, or update the latest drivers for your hardware, get latest java; video/audio codec; flash; and delete cookies and cache on your Internet. Also use Mozilla firefox not Internet explorer (also update to latest Internet engine)

Connection is close due to a specific site we browse


It sounds like you may have either a memory or a video card problem on your system at the greatest.

  1. I would start by downloading the newest firefox from Install the new firefox and open it
  2. go to and download the latest flash files, it will be the button in the middle of the screen, as soon as you get to the website. (If you see a movie play, that means your flash is up to date)
  3. Then go to and download the latest java.
  4. Close Firefox and re-open it, then go to Tools > Clear Private Data > Select Cookies , Cache and browser history Click ok.
  1. Close Firefox and re-open it
  2. Try adiciting games website

This should work for you. Let me know if your still having problems.

Try flushing your Java cache.

Start > Control Panel > Java > Temporary Internet Files (Settings) > Delete Files.

You might even try UNchecking "Keep Temporary Files on My Computer".
