Hi

It could be some of your system application cause your internet explorer not to open. I suggest to try the steps below.

1. Click start
2, go to Run, then type this command in the box.

msconfig

a pop window will show up on the screen.

3. Look for Services as one of the tab of the window.

4. Under services, look for a smal box at the bottom portion of the screen that say "hide all microsoft services" then click on disable all.

5. Look for Startup tab on the same window screen. Then click on Disable all. Click on apply then "Ok/ Close"

6. Restart your computer. After restarting your computer. You will see the system configuration utility window. just put a check on a small box that say "Do no show the message" then click Ok.

7. Try to open your internet explorer icon.


Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Laptop will not accept old gmil password or new one even after several attempts


            HI BERNARD!
            I MIGHT HAVE A FEW IDEAS THAT HAVE HELPED ME WITH PASSWORDS AND GMAIL ON MY LAPTOP THAT YOUR WELCOME TO TRY IF YOU'D LIKE.
            • I HAVE RECENTLY INSTALLED THE FREE FIREFOX INTERNET BROWSER ON THREE MY FAMILY LAPTOPS AND MY BUSINESS LAPTOP. FIREFOX IS USER FRIENDLY. ONCE I ADJUSTED THE BROWSER SETTINGS TO MY LIKING I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO KEEP TRACK OF OUR PASSWORDS. IF I NEED IT THE INFO I HAVE IT AVAILABLE IN MY FIREFOX BROWSER FOR EACH LAPTOP. STORED SAFELY AND PRIVATELY IS: SAVED LOGINS INCLUDING PASSWORDS AND THE SITE USED ON, USERNAME ,THE DATE AND TIME FIRST USED ALSO THE DATE & TIME LAST USED, DATE CHANGE/UPDATE PASSWORDS. IF I HAVE ANY TROUBLE ON ANY WEBSITE LIKE GOOGLE MAIL I CAN REFER TO MY SAVED LOG INS TO REGAIN ACCESS, RESTORE, AND EVEN VERIFY MY GMAIL ACCOUNTS FOR EACH DEVICE WITH FIRE FOX BROWSER . IF YOU'RE INTEREST ...THIS IS WHAT I DID :
            1. IN THE SEARCH BAR I TYPED - (FREE DOWNLOAD FIREFOX INTERNET BROWSER NEWEST VERSION 2016)-
            2. I PICKED a W.O.T APPROVED WEBSITE LINK " (Mozilla Firefox - Free download and software reviews - CNET ... ) OR (download.cnet.com/mozilla-firefox/ ) they both take ya to the same place safely.
            3. ON THE download.com WEBSITE I CLICKED ON THE GREEN BUTTON "SECURE DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD NOW" -THERE ARE PROMPTS GIVEN FOR THE REST OF THE STEPS TO INSTALLATION OF FIREFOX BROWSER.
            4. ONCE FIREFOX IS INSTALLED I ADJUSTED MY BROWSER SETTINGS BY CLICKING ON THE lll (horizontal) 3 LINES IN THE TOP CORNER OF THE SCREEN. (menu)
            5. I FOUND THE "OPTIONS" W/ THE COG WHEEL OR WATCH GEAR LOOKING ICON . THEN CLICKED ON IT.
            6. IN OPTIONS THERE IS A LIST OF CATEGORIES TO CHOOSE FROM. I CHOSE THE 'SECURITY' SETTINGS.
            7. IN SECURITY SETTINGS UNDER 'LOG INS' I CHECK MARKED THE BOX NEXT TO 'REMEMBER LOG INS FOR SITES'.
            • NOW I AM ABLE TO REFER TO THIS SAME AREA TO ACCESS MY LOG IN INFO FOR EACH SITE INCLUDING MY GMAIL ACCOUNTS. TO ACCESS MY LOG IN INFO. I DID THIS:
              1. OPEN INTERNET /GO ONLINE VIA FIREFOX BROWSER- CLICK the III icon (menu)-CLICK ON 'OPTIONS'-CHOOSE 'SECURITY' SETTINGS-UNDER 'LOG INS'-(AFTER I ALREADY SET IT TO SAVE LOG INS)-I PROCEED TO LOG-IN TO WEBSITES NORMALLY.
              2. THEN I'D REPEAT WHEN NECESSARY THE PROCESS IN 1. TO GET TO THE 'SECURITY' SETTINGS-UNDER 'LOG INS' - I FIND THE 'SAVED LOG INS' AND CLICK ON IT.
              3. IN 'SAVED LOG INS'- I AM ABLE TO VIEW ALL THE 'LOG INS' ON THAT LAPTOP. BY SCROLLING THROUGH THE SITES, OR USERNAMES, OR DATES,
                • WHEN I WANT TO VIEW A FULL LOG IN FOR A SITE ;FOR INSTANCE : (https://accountsgoogle.com) I JUST FIND THE 'SHOW PASSWORDS' BUTTON AND CLICK ON IT.
                • THIS ENABLES ME TO SEE ALL MY LOG IN ACTIVITY FOR MY GMAIL ACCOUNTS INCLUDING PASSWORD ACTIVITY FOR MY GMAIL ACCOUNTS.
                • *** PLEASE REMEMBER*** WHEN YOU'RE DONE- BEFORE CLOSING PAGE ***TO CLICK ON*** 'HIDE PASSWORDS'!!
            • IF YOU ALREADY USE FIREFOX AS YOUR INTERNET BROWSER AND YOU'VE ALREADY DONE THESE THINGS BEFORE ON ANOTHER DEVICE AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY ACCESSING YOUR FIREFOX LOG INS ON YOUR LAPTOP THEN YOU MIGHT CONSIDER
            • GOING BACK TO THE OTHER DEVICE THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO ACCESS YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNT WITH.
            1. GO ONLINE/OPEN YOUR FIREFOX INTERNET BROWSER
            2. ON YOUR HOME PAGE OR ANY TAB/PAGE -MAYBE TRY- CLICKING ON THE III (menu) BUTTON.
            3. THEN FIND THE 'SIGN IN TO SYNC' BUTTON AND CLICK ON IT. -THIS WILL TAKE YOU TO FIREFOX ACCOUNT SYNC SETTINGS.
            4. THEN YOU WILL HAVE A CHOICE BETWEEN 'CREATING A FIREFOX ACCOUNT' OR 'SIGN IN TO YOUR FIREFOX ACCOUNT'..THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CREATE A FIREFOX ACCOUNT. WITH A FIREFOX ACCOUNT YOU CAN ACCESS FIREFOX AND ALL OF YOUR SETTINGS,TABS,HISTORY,BOOKMARKS,FAVORITES, LOG INS, EVERYTHING YOU HAVE IN FIREFOX ON ONE DEVICE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SIGN IN TO YOUR FIREFOX ACCOUNT ON ANY OTHER SUPPORTED DEVICE AND SYNC FIREFOX TO YOUR LAPTOP I BELIEVE AS WELL.
            5. USING EITHER THE DEVICE THAT YOU USED TO CREATE YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNT(S) OR THE DEVICE THAT YOU'VE SUCCESSFULLY ACCESSED YOUR GMAIL WITH AT SOME POINT ... YOU CAN TRY CHOOSING/CLICKING ON -'CREATE A FIREFOX ACCOUNT'.
            6. AFTER CREATING YOUR FIREFOX ACCOUNT ON THE OTHER WORKING DEVICE... YOU CAN FINALLY GO TO YOUR LAPTOP AND TRY CHOOSING/CLICKING ON- 'SIGN IN TO SYNC' FOR FIREFOX.
            7. IF YOU'VE DONE THIS MUCH THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE EVERY BIT OF ACCESS TO YOUR GMAIL ON YOUR LAPTOP THAT YOU HAD ON THE OTHER DEVICE. AS WELL AS MOST ANY OTHER DEVICE YOU MIGHT CHOOSE TO TRY SYNCING YOUR FIREFOX TO. ONCE SYNCED WITH YOUR LAPTOP I SUGGEST THAT YOU TRY GOING TO THE 'OPTIONS' PAGE IN YOUR FIREFOX BROWSER AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME USING YOUR LAPTOP DEVICE.
            8. THEN CLICK ON 'SECURITY' SETTINGS AGAIN; IF YOU WOULD PLEASE?
            9. THEN UNDER 'LOG INS' FIND AND CLICK ON 'SAVED LOG INS' PLEASE.
            10. HOPEFULLY THE LOG IN INFORMATION YOU FIND THERE WIL HELP YOU GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR GMAIL USING YOUR LAPTOP. IF NOT... ALSO TRY LOGGING IN TO YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNTS LIKE YOU NORMALLY WOULD , ONLY NOW TRY IT USING YOUR LAPTOP. BECAUSE IF YOUR DEVICES HAVE FIREFOX SYNCED THE THE INFO SHOULD BE THERE ON YOUR LAPTOP ALSO. IF YOU KEEP HAVING TROUBLE SIGNING IN ON ANY DEVICE THAT IT IT IS A DIFFERENT ISSUE PROBABLY. FOR INSTANCE IT MAY BE YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT RECOVERY INFO COULD BE OF USE TO YOU.
            11. WHEN YOU CREATED YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT YOU WERE PROMPTED TO SET UP YOUR RECOVERY GMAIL ADDRESS AND RECOVERY PHONE # JUST IN CASE SOMETHING HAPPENS THAT PREVENTS YOU FROM LOGGING IN TO YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT(GMAIL).
            12. WITH OR WITH OUT FIREFOX YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO USE YOUR RECOVERY PHONE# AND RECOVERY EMAIL ADDRESS TO REGAIN ACCESS TO THE PROBLEM GMAIL ACCOUNT.
            13. ALSO YOU MIGHT TRY 'FORGOT PASSWORD" IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY DONE SO..
            • (Please remember that in order to access gmail accounts, or recover lost info for logins,or passwords used to successfully login to gmail accounts it is important that the Firefox account be created on the device that has previously accessed the gmail accounts successfully.) (i.e... If I am able to use my mobile phone to successfully access my gmail accounts, or if I created my gmail accounts on my mobile phone "device" then my mobile phone "device" would be a good device to create my Firefox internet browser account. Then later on if i want to access my gmail accounts using my laptop "device" I should be able to do so when I 'sign in to sync' for Firefox using my laptop device.)

Only one user account is connecting to the internet?


This problem is usually due to parental controls or user application privileges/ network privileges.
The account that can connect to the internet should be the "administrator". In "Control Panel" access "user accounts" and check the privileges. Enable full (or the ones you want) access. "Parental controls" will block internet connections, check to make sure this is disabled or the correct level is enabled.

Hi, I'm having a problem signing in to my YahooMail and Yahoo Messenger. When I try to log on to YahooMail using the Internet Explorer, the window appears that says "The page cannot be...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Yahoo has been experiencing a system wide problem. Many of Yahoo! Mail customers are experiencing the same problem you're having.

To assist Yahoo mail customers with this problem, AOL will transfer all of your contact information and future emails from your Yahoo account to your new AOL account for the next 30 days for free. (Until Yahoo can correct the problem). You won't miss any emails from your Yahoo account.. They will be automatically forwarded to your new AOL account.

Here are the instructions:

1) Go to AOL and set up a new AOL email account. (Click on this link) https://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp?seamless=novl&locale=us&offerId=newmail-en-us-v2&siteState=ver%3A4'rt%3ASTANDARD'at%3ASNS'ld%3Awebmail.aol.com'uv%3AAOL'lc%3Aen-us'mt%3AAOL'snt%3AScreenName'sid%3Af27fcb24-926a-4b22-ac39-ac0d19e1d3f4&authLev=0&sitedomain=sns.webmail.aol.com&lang=en

2) During the set up process you will be asked to provide a security question. Later, you'll need to answer the security question to set up the transfer, so don't forget the answer.

3) Once your new AOL account is set up, go to your AOL email page. Look in the upper right hand top corner for the word, SETTINGS and click on it.

4) (Next page) On the left hand side, look for the word, Accounts and click on it.

5) (Next Page) Look on the line beginning with, Transfer Accounts and locate the link that reads, AOL Easy Transfer and click on it.

6) (Next Page) Agree to the terms of service and click on, Get Started.

7) (Next Page) Under Copy from, enter your Yahoo email address and password.

8) Under Copy to, enter your new AOL email address and password.

9) (Next Page) Carefully Read, and select the options you need. (Click, Continue)

10) (Next Page) Click, Go to AOL Mail.

11) (Next Page) Enter the answer to your security question you created when you set up your new AOL email account. (Click, Continue)

12) (Next Page) Look at the top Left hand corner and click on, MAIL.

That's it. (Although AOL says that it may take up to 24 hours to complete the process - it usually only takes about 30 minutes.) After you receive your confirmation email, Click on your Contacts in your AOL account. When you see your Contacts from your Yahoo account there, the transfer has completed.

Ya the best thing to do is delete AOL all together.

Ok, making a desktop icon for Googel or any other website.
Open your internet explorer, it doesn't matter how you get their. Open Google and once google opens, right click with your mouse ( over any part of the google page ) and scroll down to create a shortcut and left click with your mouse. You will get a message, can't create hear, do you want to make it on desktop ? Click yes and close your google, internet explorer and anything else you may have open.
Now, look on your desktop for Google and hold down the left mouse button on the icon and dragging it anywhere you may want to put it on the desktop.
