Update blocks internet

Adobe keeps restarting programme

Uninstall in by going to add/remove programs and reinstall - I believe you have an old version that is not compatible with the current version of your OS - this could be caused if the computer isn't hooked up to the internet during automatic updates - Adobe also might have updates - all your updates may be getting blocked by your anti-virus program as well.

Acer Aspire One, online connection is ok but No

Microsoft changed its log-in protocols since the Aspire One was released and the version of Messenger installed is unable to connect to the Microsoft servers.

You can get to the Live Update function by clicking on the settings icon from the home page (bottom right of your screen) you will bring up the settings window (obviously). Inside here, you will see the Live update icon (mine’s on the bottom left next to Touchpad).

1. Make sure you’re connected to the Internet.
2. Click on the Live Update icon.
3. Click on “Update” and if there are any updates, they will be listed and you have the opportunity to install them all.
4. Click on Install and your Aspire One will automatically download and install the updates for your netbook.

Won't install without error message

Excerpt from:

There is 1 update required when running IE8 RC1 on multi-core XPSP2 x86 computers:
KB932823 or KB946501.
This update resolves a problem in which an access violation occurs when an application exists on a Windows XP SP2-based multi-core computer. It will be installed automatically if you select “Install the latest updates” option in Setup Wizard. If this update fails to install successfully, IE8 installation will be blocked until you manually install this update from Microsoft Download Center.
So see if you can do a manual install of this update. There are a number of other suggestions in the above link that might also help.

Good Luck!

Popup blocker has three levels of strength, low, medium, and high.

In high, all pop ups are blocked, and if this is your desire, then open internet explorer, choose Tools / Pop up blocker settings / and toward the bottom of the screen you will see an option to set the pop up block level to 'high'.

If this is not the problem, and you still have pop-ups, then you most certainly have spyware / adware on your computer.

In this case download 'Spybot' (google for it), install, update, and 'scan for problems'. This is totally 'freeware', and will never cost you money.

Watch as it digs out severe problems from your computer and the pop-ups disappear.
