    Broken IE, How to fix it...


    So one of your friends, "not you of course", has managed to nuke Internet Explorer and they are unsure how they did it. You've eliminated the possibility of viruses and adware, so this just leaves you and a broken IE. Before you begin to even consider running a repair install of the Operating System, ket's try to do a repair on IE instead.

    The Repair Process

    Start the Registry Editor by typing regedit from the Run box. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383} and then right-click the "IsInstalled value." Click Modify. From there, you will change the value from 1 to 0. All right, go ahead and close the editor and reinstall IE from this location.
    /http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.mspx

    If something goes wrong...

    If messing with the registry and something goes horribly wrong, you can use "Last Know Good Configuration (F8 Safe Mode)" or a Restore Point to get back to where you were before, with your settings. Then you can try again, this time taking care to watch the portion of the registry you are changing. Most people who have troubles with this end up changing the wrong registry key.

    Hope this will helps some.

    Good luck!

    Cannot connect to internet router is working properly it is connected to my regular computer but cannnot get singal for my notebook


    Hello, bevybuns5!

    First thing, make sure your WLAN card is turned on, however, without knowing your specific laptop model, I can't help locate it for you. After that, check your router's wireless security code, and assure that you're entering it correctly. Then, if you still aren't able to connect, try manually unplugging the ethernet cable from your PC, then plug the Ethernet cable into the laptop. If you get a signal, skip to the third paragraph, if not then read the next paragraph.

    If you aren't getting a physical connection, it could indicate that there is something wrong with some type of software, or operating system settings that aren't allowing you to connect to the internet (leave the network cable plugged in for troubleshooting). Try checking firewall settings (windows firewall is infamous for blocking almost all connections at will). Then, if you're using windows xp, go to the start menu, open the run command, and type "CMD" without quotes (if you're using Vista or Win7, then just type CMD in the search box at the start menu. When the command prompt screen appears, enter this text without quotes "ipconfig /all". If you have an IP address, subnet gateway, and IPv4 configuration, then you're ready for the next step (if not, let me know in a comment, and I'll leave the instructions for that solution). If you're using xp, then right click computer, click properties, go to the hardware tab, then click "Device Manager" (for Vista/Win7, just type Device Manager in the start menu search box). Scroll down (if you have to) to Network, click on it, find your physical network card, right click and uninstall it (don't worry, this won't hurt anything). Wait for a few moments, then right click anywhere in the Device Manager window, then select "scan for new hardware". This will find the NIC you just uninstalled, and reinstall it (with original drivers, unless you've upgraded your Operating System, then you'll have to get the drivers from the manufacturers website via your desktop). Reboot the laptop, and try connecting with the LAN cable again. If this solution doesn't work, leave me a comment describing what you've done, and any error messages that have come up.

    If you recieve a signal from the LAN cable, and still cannot connect via the wireless card, then back into device manager we go! For xp users, go to the Start Menu > right click Computer > click Properties > go to the Hardware tab > then click Device Manager. For Vista/Win7 users, open the Start Menu, then type Device Manager. Scroll down and find your wireless card, and if you've tried the solution in the second paragraph, you know what we're gonna do. Right click it, Uninstall the wireless card, wait for a few moments, then right-click anywhere in the Device Manager screen, and select Scan for New Hardware. Reboot the system, and you should be working!

    Usuall i i leave 1 space between 2 words, but if by mistake if two or more spaces are entered how do i detect them.


    You don't mention which program(s) you are using.

    The easy answer is to use a decent word processor such as Microsoft Word. This will have auto formatting rules that cater for things such as double spaces that aren't after a full stop.

    Where that doesn't work, many programs have a Find and Replace option. Use this and type two spaces in the find box and one space in the replace box. Go through replacing each one manually as you want, or hit Replace All. Try using CTRL+F to access this option. This works on OpenOffice.org Writer (a free alternative to Microsoft Word - you can obtain it from www.openoffice.org if you do not have Word). Word should be the same - CTRL+F to open Find, then depending on version it will have a Replace tab. If not, look on the Edit menu for Find and Replace. In Notepad, there is a Replace option on the Edit menu (CTRL+H).

    Won't Print Microsoft Visual C Error


    Hi,
    I would suggest contacting the person who installed the wireless. If you paid for the service they must repair the problem. A Technician should not leave your computer in a mess like this one did. If you don't get any satisfaction from them, call the Better Business Bureau and see what can be done to rectify this problem. If you try to fix their mess you won't have a case. I hope this helps.
