Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

404 problem I can't seem to find some of the web sites that I belong to with the vista program. Every time I goggle the name it brings up the website choices but when I enter I get the 404 page not found screen. Big Fish games is one of these. My son plays on this site and has a membership. We never had a problem with his other lap top which had XP, but we can't seem to get onto this website with vista.

As the name mentions, error code 404 means that the
1. address that you are trying to access does not exist. First u need to make sure that you are typing the correct URL in the address bar of the Internet Explorer (or any other browser). If you are sure that the url you have typed is correct, then you can check it from any other location (a cybercafe, friend's pc etc.).
2. It may also happen that the site you are trying to access may currently be on maintenance so , the web page will usually not be accessible.
3. If you are accessing the URL from bookmarks, it may not load properly as pages that require user login will expire after some time.
4.You could also try an alternate web browser (Internet explorer 9,mozilla firefox,opera,chrome etc).
Now, try to open the big fish games website from here.

(As Internet Explorer 7 has known issues regarding opening some websites, i suggest you to switch to a different browser)

all the best.

Error 404


Hi.<br /> <br /> 404 error page not found means that the computer is connected to the Internet, but that it cannot find the page linked to the domain name (that www.something.com, aka URL), or linked to the IP address typed into the browser (eg. Internet Explorer) address bar.<br /> <br /> The error is usually displayed because of either one of the following reasons:<br /> <br /> 1) The web page does not exist or the website does not work. In this case the web page requested will return error 404 from any computer. Test using at list two different computers and two different network connections.<br /> <br /> <ol> <li>This usually translates in one of the following:</li> <li>You wrote the URL in the wrong way.</li> <li>The web page requested does not exist.</li> <li>The web server hosting the website is down.</li> <li>The domain name is not linked to the website anymore (setting problems or subscription expired)</li></ol> <br /> 2) Your computer's DNS or network settings are wrong.In this case the web page requested will return error 404 from this computer. The same page will be displayed using a different computer or network. One example of this situation is when some malaware disables access to Websites like Microsoft by changing DNS service. If this is the case the same page will be displayed using other computers, but you will get error 404 with this particular computer.<br /> <br /> If this is the case, ensure that you have installed an efficient and updated antivirus. Run a virus scan.<br /> If that is not enough to fix the problem, try the following reset:<br /> <br /> 1- Click Start &gt;&gt; Run &gt;&gt; regsvr32 /i browseui.dll&gt;&gt; enter<br /> <br /> A dialog box with a confirmation message will be displayed. Click OK.<br /> <br /> 2- Click Start &gt;&gt; Run &gt;&gt; regsvr32 /i shell32.dll<br /> <br /> Wait for the dialog box, then click OK.<br /> <br /> Regards.<br /> <br /> Ginko.<br /> <br /> <br />

Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: integrator.exe Application Version: 12.0.2110.8 Application Timestamp: 4ec65a41 Fault Module Name: MainControls.bpl Fault


If this is causing you to have crashes, the .exe is probably corrupt. It belongs to booster and certain tuneup utility programs ("Dachshund Integrator or TuneUp Utilities (version 2006, 2009) or Glary Utilities (version 3) or Glary Utilities PRO or Auslogics BoostSpeed"). If you have any of these programs installed I'd uninstall it and restart your computer. Then reinstall if you want to use the program still, though preferably after an update. I'd also clean your computer with CCleaner and remove junk files before reinstalling. This will clear corrupted files that might not have been removed with the uninstallation of the program. If you continue to experience this issue, install sandbox and make sure the program runs within sandbox. This will prevent any faults or issues with the program from interfering with your OS.

Each time I try and install the digital software for the scanner a message comes up and says I have a trojan virus each time.


what antivirus do you have? and what software do you want to install? maybe i can help.
my quick tips: if u trust the program and the program is one packet with the scanner then u just need to skip the massage and add to exception. sometime some program can be detected as trojans for some antivirus if the program running have same characteristic like trojans. (just to make sure: write down the identified trojans name, then goggling it to know what trojans are u dealing with, if u found it have high risk tread then u need to contact service center of your scanner)
but if u download the program from the internet then u need to make sure that u download from the official site of your scanner.
hope this useful, regards.

A few things you need. Publisher will FTP to your web site ? ?
Who's hosting your site... not your name. If Register.com is your hosting company, you need to check out the settings needed to put into Publisher to FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to your site and the correct name of the main web folder like public_html . You need the login name and password to your web page.

Internet Explorer cannot display web page


a couple things I've seen
- first the address as posted is invalid (can't find) but if you insert a dot (.) between parents and brickshools then it finds it (http://parents.brickshools.org/)

- if the corrected address is correct it looks like the site is redirected to a secure connection (https vs. http) and then the problem is that the site owner's security certificate has several problems as follows:

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority. The security certificate presented by this website has expired or is not yet valid. The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address. these issues were presented to me by Internet Explorer v7.0 - the main address functions (http://brickschools.org/) so it definitely seems to be a security certificate issue on their end. I would speak with the site owner. btw, I'm coincidentally in Toms River :)
