Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Internet Explorer shows the - symbol and pi symbol as a square

Hello. I am taking online college classes and when using the lab program for algebra, the symbol for pi and the - symbol both show up as a box.

I have tried contacting tech support for the program, my college, and have tried installing Firefox browser to use. So far no-one can help.

Also, I use Windows Vista.

Please help, this is stopping me from completing some of my homework and tests, since I can't tell the difference between the two symbols.

I can be reached here or at whttail101@yahoo.com

    That will not help. They show up as a square when I type answers, and they show up as squares in the question that is generated by the lab.



    Another bit of information I thought of, when I type passwords for yahoo, they show up as squares too, not as asterisks. They used to show up as asterisks, but one day they started showing up as squares, which I didn't think anything about it, I just thought it had to do with a vista patch. Some websites they show up as squares, and others show up as dots.

I cant seem to open up my internet explorer


To resolve this problem in Internet Explorer, follow these steps:
  1. Quit all programs that are running.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.
  4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.
If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below):
  • Shdocvw.dll
  • Actxprxy.dll
  • Oleaut32.dll
  • Mshtml.dll
  • Browseui.dll
  • Shell32.dll
Windows XP and Windows 2000 only loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Restart the computer to enable the changes to take effect.

If the problem is still not resolved, verify that the following registry values are present and correct: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{00020400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}
Name: (Default)
Value: IDispatch
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{00020400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\ProxyStubClsid
Name: (Default)
Value: {00020420-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{00020400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\ProxyStubClsid32
Name: (Default)
Value: {00020420-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}

If the problem is still not resolved, reinstall Internet Explorer. If you are using the version of Internet Explorer that is included with your operating system, reinstall or repair your operating system.

Kasper 2009 wont allow me to go on the internet


Hello,

More than likely what has happened is that kaspersky found and removed a piece to spyware or a virus and that broke the IP stack. Get on another computer with internet access and search for a program called winsockxpfix download this to a usb drive and run it on the computer with the internet problems. This program will reset the tcp/ip settings in the computer and then when you restart the pc you should be back online again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Keep getting that internet exlorer is not responding.


Tabbed browsing using Internet explorer is like running multiple instances of Internet explorer, and depending on how your computer is using its resources, IE could be taking up the little that is left, thus your processor is overworked, and your memory is maxed out. On the other hand, you might just have a defective installation of the progra, that you could either repair through control panel > Add/Remove programs or even update
Websites with a lot of graphics will determine how much of your system resources Internet explorer will demand in addition to its required resources.
Just to add a little perspective, if you have a laptop, with 'an almost full harddisk' and a processor at say 2GHz, 2GB of RAM, and Windows Vista, McAfee or Norton Antivirus, Internet Explorer 6 through 8, Office 2007, Spybot S&D and a series of other programs that are constantly running, you're doomed, because if all those programs run their services, your computer will constantly freeze

Ressolving and getrid of antispyware"virus heat.com" and icons in the notification area of task bar


In internet explorer go to the tools menu and then internet options menu. Go to the programs tab and look for internet explorer being the default browser. Click make default. If you want you can take the tick out of the box which says inform you if its not default.

You may also want to go into control panel and choose add/remove programs and find the offending program and remove it. Be careful you dont remove anything else.
