How to fix slow downloads on pc


Many things will slow down a computer. You didn't supply your model of computer or the OS you are using so I can not be specific. So a place to start is: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10things/10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-7/3332 OR http://www.pcworld.com/article/143538/windows_vista.html OR http://www.wikihow.com/Speed-up-a-Windows-XP-Computer

My pc was very slowly running


Your machine is old, there's not much you can do. Remove any programs you don't use, stop programs from starting-up with the OS, and increase your RAM: http://www.crucial.com/index.aspx

Unable to log in to certain websites


Do you have more than one browser on the affected computer? If so , try in the other browser (If not I suggest you get Firefox at http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

Probably the most common cause of your type of problem is a corrupted temp page or cookie.
So in IE go to tools/ internet options/ general / temp internet files
Click delete files / delete all offline content.
For the cookies , if you do not have any customized sites, click on delete cookies. Otherwise, click on settings/ view files and delete the cookie for that site.
If you have used auto complete to log in , it is possible that the auto complete became corrupted. Unfortunately in IE you cannot just edit specific sites as you can in Firefox.
Go to tools / internet options/ content/ personal information/ auto complete /
Click on clear passwords.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Internet explorer keeps telling me cannot display webpage


First check whether you are connected to the internet through a proxy or directly. Then check internet option connection lan setting option maybe those should be kept to automatic or point to the right server. Then in the internet explorer go to the internet option , advanced and click reset button that should do the trick. Also if this doesnot work download firefox and install it. when you can see pages in firefox that means everything is okay and it is problem with the browser. replace your browser with new ie8 and thats all

When I go to download adobe or anything the computer shuts out of internet explorer, then when you click on the internet it says restore session. What is wrong with the computer?


There's nothing wrong with the computer. But I'm suspecting that you have a corrupted Internet Explorer. Try to optimize the browser by deleting the Cookies and Temporary Internet File. Please follow the steps below:

1. Run Internet Explorer
2. Click on Tools > Internet Options...
3. Click the Delete button under the Browsing History.
4. Select Cookies, Temporary Internet files
5. Close and re-open the Internet Explorer

If same problem occured, try using Mozilla Firefox. If the issue would be resolved in using Firefox, then the Internet Explorer is corrupted and needs to be updated.

Have a great day!

Connection to wireless internet is excellent but no browsers open


You may have a corrupt/deleted file and want to Restore/Reload your windows. The windows program is usually stored/hidden on the harddrive in another directory. Easiest way is to use Control Panel and something like System Maint to reload the Windows. Drawback is that the system will be the same as when first removed from the box, and you'll have to reload any programs, printers and such. If you have any files you want to save, you should back it up on an external source. Then go back and reload and reconfigure your computer.

Corrupt browser files


On any computer, download ATF CLEANER from http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=25&Itemid=25 save it to a flash drive so you can move it from computer to computer. copy it from the flashdrive to the desktop on the buggy computer. RUN IT!
check the box saying "select all" then click on the "empty selected" button below it. this will NOT remove any windows system files, it only clears trash you pick up on the net in temporary files and caches.
This may take a few minutes the first time as it clears the trash. I had a computer i worked on today that it cleared about 3 GIGABYTE of stuff out, all of which goes out to the internet and updates itself if your running default internet explorer settings.
Anyway, run this more than once, the second time your looking for a message stating "no files removed", when you see this you know you are clean. make sure you dont have your broswer running while you run it as you will not get a good reading with it pulling in data.
I run this program everytime i turn off the broswer, if used all the time , there's no need for a spyware program.

**NOTE** If you run this AFT cleaner with no other programs open and it never gives you the "no files found" message, you should reboot in safe mode and run your virus scanner. What this implies is that something is going out to the internet and gathering data, which could be a virus or a piece of software trying to update itself.

Regards.
