This sounds like a connectivity problem. Check your internet connection. From the start menu select run. Type cmd in the box and hit enter. At the command prompt screen type
iconfig /renew and press enter.

It should give you a reading such as:

    Select file from the drop down menu and look to make sure you dont have a check mark beside the work offline options. If you do than select it and close the window, re open and try to surf, if it still doesn't go anywhere than follow the below solutions.



    Go to your control panel and to "add and Remove programs" From there click on Internet Explorer.

    Than click remove. If the installation is not correct or missing files it will prompt you to repair.



    If the repair isn't successful, remove the program and re install.

Sending failed unknown error message


Unless you really need it, I'd just ditch Windows Live Mail. Give yourself a direct link to your online mail page. If you need a mail client, try Mozilla Thunderbird.

How to Solve the Javascript Void(0) Problem


Many internet users face this problem when they try clicking a link and see this error code on the status bar of the browser which doesn't allow the link to work. It is actually an error message that occasionally appears in a web browser when you face a problem loading a JavaScript from a webpage. Though this error message pops up on various occasions but the actual reasons could be different for different users, and resolving these problems is necessary by knowing the most possible reasons for this error message.
1- The major cause of this error message is the Popup blocker blocking the JavaScript while stopping the windows which open up as the advertisements on various sites. Resolving this problem involves making changes in the preferences of the popup blocker based on your requirements and thus disabling the popup blocker. One can even download another anti popup software instead or can read the product reviews of popup blockers to assess if they really cause these error messages.
2- The malfunctioning of the web proxy servers (which are used for accessing the various banned websites) can also block the various scripts in the process. This problem can be avoided by not using the proxy server itself or using a proxy server that functions better and do not interfere in the downloading of various scripts. Also check for the compatibility of the proxy server with various web pages and scripts.
An improperly written JavaScript could also lead to this error message. The solution lies in notifying this error to the webmaster who in turn must rewrite the JavaScript.
3- The JavaScript might be disabled in your browsers, and this needs to be enabled. To enable this in IE, go to scripting tab of the security option in the Tools menu under the internet options; and to enable this in Firefox, go to Tools menu and enable the JavaScript option in Web features.
4- Web browser implementation of JavaScript might also be broken in some cases, and this requires the switching or simply the up gradation of your web browser.
There is this simple way where you can really avoid "javascript:void(0)" error message at the first instance because we know that this "javascript:void(0)" can cause certain browsers to really present your web pages in unusual ways, and since the "javascript:void(0)" statement is often occurred when a link has no URL attached to it, and the browser doesn't understand how to react and returns the error message. So for this, instead use the "return false;" statement to let the browser not to look for the URL. Try opening the document in any text editor; Locate the "javascript:void(0)" references within the document, Replace the links with the (#) symbol with the syntax ".", Add the "return false" declaration to the statement that would make the whole link reference to appear as a Link. Replace the "callFunction()" with your function name; Save and close the file finally.

Registry errors


You may have encountered the following message while browsing certain websites:

"Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://<website>.com. Operation aborted."


This really has nothing to do with your browser or your computer. You get this error because of faulty web coding from the webmaster's end.

IE displays this error when it is unable to open a particular element on a web page.


There are many things you can do to troubleshoot this kind of problem.


Upgrade Internet Explorer.

This problem does not occur in Internet Explorer 8. Navigate to Microsoft download Center and click on the "Download" button to upgrade to IE8 or IE9 (see Below).


http://download.cnet.com/windows-internet-explorer-8/3000-2356_4-10910662.html

IE 8


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx

IE 9


Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options." Hit the "Advanced" tab.

Click to remove the check mark next to "Show friendly HTTP error messages" under "Browsing" sub-headings.


Click on "Apply" and hit "OK." Please note this works mostly for Internet Explorer 6, although there is no harm in trying this on older or newer versions.


Add the specific website that is producing "Operation aborted" error under "Restricted Sites."


Click on the "Security" tab under "Internet Options."

Single-click to highlight "Restricted Sites."


Hit on the "Sites" button and click on "Add."

Type the URL of the website and hit "OK."


This works for Internet Explorer 7, but again, you can try this in earlier versions.


Disable or require prompt for "Active Scripting" when you view the specific website.

Click on the "Security" tab.


Click to highlight 'Restricted Sites" zone.

Navigate down to the sub-heading "Scripting."


Click to select "Disabled" under "Active Scripting."

You may also choose "Prompt" if you want IE to issue a prompt when opening the specific web page or website.


If you are still worried about the registry or need to fix any problems with it

You can run a free registry scan using utilities from http://re7.info

Hope this helps.

Error Code: -130 Failed to load web page (unknown error).What's your problem?


Go to Steam > Library > Right click on whatever game isn't working > Now click on Properties > Properties window will now appear > Click on Local Files Tab > Now click on Verify Integrity of game cache this will now check the files and fix them if there are any problems found. Once this has completed try opening your game again the error should now have gone.
If that doesn't seem to work, close Steam, then fully exit out of it and restart it.

Why I can't install my Optiplex 360 sound drivers? It says: the operating system is not supported by this software.I use Windows XP SP3 after I formatted my HDD besause of BSoD. Please, I really need this...


it usually means that it doesn't have the correct driver for that version of windows. Reinstall windows again but this time do not update the windows. let it stay with the current version because that driver is built in for that version. After reinstalling the windows and the driver, that's the time you can update your windows to the SP3. Frankl, it would be better if you do not update to SP3 at all. It usually slows down your computer which gives an error or a BSOD.

You can also check the manufacturer's website for any update on any of it's drivers for that model.

I can't install windows live messenger, it encounter a network error while attempting to read from the file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\Messenger.msi


I found the site below and thought of your situation. Here is the message I received:
-------
"Network error occurred while attempting to read from the file:
C:\\WINDOWS/Installer/Messenger.msi
Please close all other open programs, and then try again. It looks like another program is preventing the installer from working. hr.0x80070643"
-------
If it's the same message, and you haven't found a solution yet, then this will do the trick. Although it's an older post, it works just fine for the current 14.0.8117.416 Messenger update issue:
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/index.cfm?action=showthread&threadid=346865&forumid=1
Scroll about halfway down the page. Look for Microsoft Customer Support (Joan, Technical Support, Live Essentials):
Note: For the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, I downloaded from this link (you'll want the latest version wherever you get it - 2.5.0.1):

I locked my self out of the computer and forgot the password how do I log in


Hello,
If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer, or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account.

If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator, unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to private information.


Also there is another way you can solve this issue.
- Go to start and run type in CMD
-Black screen would pop up and do this
net user user name *
(user name means whatever ur username is that appears on your login screen)
after this the computer will ask u to type a password so just type any password. Better to type a really short one becasue when you type the password on this screen you won't see the cursor moving or your password being typed in.
Press Enter after typing the password.
It will ask you to retype the password. Again the password would be visible when you type.
Press Enter and it will tell you command completed successfully. If it does not work then retype the commands again carefully. Just make sure u type a short password, probably a one letter password and u wont have any issues.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

I am trying to download windows live messenger, but when i do, it says that i am working offline, even though i have connected to internet!


FYI, just because you see a page open within your Browser, that in itself doesn't mean you're connected to the internet as the page may have been cached (saved). So to verify connectivity try to navigate to another page by clicking a link in the one you're on (such as the download link that gives you the offline error) or typing in a URL to another site and verifying connectivity. Once you have established connectivity to the Internet (not just your network) then try to download Messenger from Microsoft again.
If you have verified connectivity and still get the offline message, then try downloading Messenger from another source, maybe that will help.
