Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
I am baffled. I have used LinkedIn without issue with Windows Vista for well over a year. All of a sudden it started tanking on log in (says there is no connection to the internet). I downloaded Chrome and it workd for 3 days and then did the same thing. Firefox didn't work. I then tried this on another home laptop with Vista and had the same challenge (didn't work on IE, worked for about 3 days with Chrome then stopped working, never worked with Firefox). I've been talking with LinkedIn for 3 weeks and they have no solution and claim no one else is having the problem. I find this shocking as I can't log in with my account to ANY Vista machine successfully. I can log in to any non-Vista machine with the same account and it works just fine.
Please tell me you have seen this problem and know exactly how to fix it. Same problem here. Been out for a week as 11/23/08.
It sounds like you have connection issues.
For starter please consider disabling your firewall (under control panel) then try connecting.
If this doesn't work please try reseting internet explorer settings (under explorer-tools).
Check with tech support of linkedln to see if they require special internet explorer security settings and have them walk you through your settings to make sure nothing has changed.
Last but not least I'd try to go to system restore and restore to a point where you are sure evrything had worked like couple of weeks ago or even one month ago if possible.
(start-programs-accessories-system tools-system restore).
The system restore tool doesn't erase or change any data although if installed any program since that point you are going to have to reinstall it since system restore will restore all registry information to that specific point and disregard everything you did afterwards, therefor I'm going to have to tell you to use at your own risk.
Thank you for using agadycom.
