Login yahoo config reset cookies token


here are some suggestions you should check/try if you haven't already.

1. The date on your computer needs to be set properly -- double click the clock verify that
the time and date are set.

2. If your password information is not saved, verify that you are typing it in with the
correct case (uppercase or lowercase).

3. Change your password to something smaller (under 10-12 characters), then try signing in again.

4. If you use a firewall (like ZoneAlarm, Norton Internet Security,WindowsFirewall etc. ), it's possible
that Messenger doesn't have the correct rights to access the Internet, especially since you
upgraded. You may need to re/add Messenger to the allowed list of programs in your firewall
if this is the case.

5. If you disabled your firewall in the past, it still may be blocking Messenger -- try
restarting it and see if that helps the situation. You also might try uninstalling an
installed firewall, to verify that it isn't causing a problem (even if it is disabled).

6. Clear your IE cache and cookies -- open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then click the Delete Files button, and when that's complete click the
Delete Cookies button.

7. Check your IE Security settings -- open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section, and verify that "Check
for server certificate revocation" is unchecked. Also verify that 'Use SSL 2.0' and Use SSL
3.0' is checked, then click OK

There seems to be an issue with your browser or the computer may be effected by spyware or Virus. Are you facing this issue only with Facebook or others website also?
You can try to use any other browser to confirm its a browser issue. Try to switch to google Chrome or Firefox.

Make sure the firewall is not blocking access to the internet. Try turning off the firewall for a while... to test if that is the problem.

After I install the firewall jetico personal


Different firewall programs have different levels of user interaction (some have lots and lots of questions) to determine the overall security settings. Generally a firewall program automatically places IE into the safe application zone upon install. You will now have to verify that IE is listed as a safe app somewhere within the firewall settings.

If you are simply in need of a basic firewall with minimal fuss that has pretty good info built in about what apps are what you may want to uninstall Jetico and try Zone Alarm Free. Not that ZA is the end all be all of firewalls but it has less of a learning curve and is very straightforward in its protection scheme.

Internet connectivity


TCP/IP network transport not installed

Symptoms: After you run Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) or other anti-virus/spyware/adware software, 1) you may receive one or more of the following interactive error messages:

Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service on Local Computer. Error 10047: An address incompatible with the requested protocol was used.

or

Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service?

or

This application has failed to start because SPORDER.dll was not found.

2) Third-party networking products may not function correctly.

3) Computers may not be able to connect to the network because they cannot obtain an IP address.

4) You may receive the following error message when you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer:

Error 404: Page cannot be displayed.

Cause:

There are known spyware programs that install layered service providers (LSPs) on client computers to gather user data. When Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) removes spyware programs, it also removes the spyware-based LSPs. However, Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) does not restore any LSPs after it removes the spyware.

Possible Virus


Spyware cause the same effect as general browser pop-ups but they are usually powered by Browser Helper Objects, ActiveX controls which attaches to Internet Explorer and contacts their servers without your knowledge. This not only means waste of internet bandwidth, but your private information may also be sent to someone. You need to treat any outgoing connection without your permission, as a security threat.
Along with your anti-virus software, you need to anti-spyware tools such as Ad-AwareSpybot Search & DestroySpyware Blaster at a bare minimum. You must update the pattern files before scanning just like what you do for your anti-virus software.

  • Use HOSTS file to block unwanted ad servers and sites that are known to spread malware
  • Increase your browser security settings. Visit the following link to learn how to protect the system from parasites.
Dealing with Unwanted Spyware, Parasites, Toolbars and Search Engines
(Site packed with full of security tips, advice to prevent parasites being installed)
  • Use an application-based firewall, such as Zone Alarm, Sygate etc. They alert you whenever an outgoing traffic by a new application is detected. By doing this, you are preventing dialers, Trojans accessing the internet. Give equal importance to the configuration of the firewall. Assume your firewall as the gatekeeper, and only allow programs that you want, to access the internet. You may then test the effectiveness of the Firewall (for inbound protection) using any of these websites. They scan your system for open ports and vulnerabilities and advice you what action to take.
