Chatango cannot connet

Help: trouble shooting If nothing else has fixed your problem, you could try these general solutions.

Clear your cache Clear your browser's cache (the temporary files your browser stores to make sites load faster). Sometimes an old or incompatible file may be stored in your browser's cache. If you clear the cache new files will be downloaded the next time you visit the page.

Update your Flash Player Chatango runs using the Adobe Flash Player. You can download the latest version here.

Update your browser - or try a different browser Sometimes an old browser may not work well with new sites. Try getting a modern browser:
Internet Explorer

Check your internet connection Chatango will not work on proxy connections.
Try a different way of connecting to the internet and see if that solves your problems.
If it works on your computer or device with one connection but not another - the problem is probably with the connection.

We are getting "unable to connect" messages whenever we attempt to use the mozilla browser on our Dell PC. This is affecting one computer only. It began quite suddenly. All was working okay up until...

It could be your McAfee but have you checked to see on the browser file link to see if it says working off line, that could be your problem if so click work online.

Corrupt browser files

On any computer, download ATF CLEANER from 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.

The pc will have to have the ip address changed as the router will give a different one to your old modem. open up your web browser and go to tools, internet options and see browsing history, click on delete and delete all temp internet files and history, then click the connections tab and ensure that your modem is showing as the default dial up or if its a modem router ensure never dial a connection is ticked. go to your network card properties in network connections and on the TCP/IP line click properties again and ensure obtain an ip address is ticked, click ok, then restart pc. When rebooted, open web browser and refresh a few times, you should then be on the net.

Internet explorer

Hi, It is either your IE got corrupted or at the very least part of it or its support files/libraries. Of course another possibility is virus infection or malware. Interestingly, if Internet Explorer is malfunctioning, you can try plain old Explorer. Goto Start, Run, type "Explorer", at the Address bar type "" which is MS repair instructions for IE issues. You have to follow closely the steps outlined to restore/repair IE. Alternatively, you can download Mozilla Firefox as another browser. A fast no frills browser is Opera. Hope this gives you some idea/help. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
