81003005 is a connection error! caused by different things. 1st The date on your computer needs to be set properly -- double click the clock verify that the time and date are set.

The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

How do I get google back as my home page


That is because you may have connected to yahoo.com and lost the home page default. In internet explorer whilst you are in Google home page you select Internet options from the tools menu and in General tab where is has space for default page you click "use current' and ok. That should save google as home page. Exit explorer and select again to make it work.

Make google home page


If your on Internet Explorer you can go to the gear at the top right hand of the page and then click on Internet Options. It opens to the general tab, in the box it may say "http://www.msn.com", just clear that out of there and type in "https://www.google.com", the reason for the "s" in https is for a secure connection to google.
*Note: In 2013 Google changed to https for a more secure connection.
Click apply and save and close your window, then open Internet Explorer. Your home page is now Google.

Am already on facebook but i can't log into facebook through yahoo


What do you mean by 'through yahoo'?

Your computer normally connects to the Internet through your ISP's equipment. You run a program such as Chrome, Firefox or (for some reason people still use) Internet Explorer. On Mac you may use Safari.

You type www.facebook.com into the address text box and hit enter and Facebook should come up.

If you use some special program from Yahoo or a link on a Yahoo web site, if you subscribe to Yahoo, you should call their tech support line for assistance.

Please do things the easy way, I always find provider's 'portal' web pages more trouble than they are worth. My home page is always www.google.com. I type in a few words about what I want and Google gives me the best links I could ask for.

I had internet explorer provided by cox.net and for some reason it is now by yahoo. I have to put in the router connection every time I want to go on line. I cant seem to find anything that will alouw me...


I believe that you had your home page as cox.net and now its yahoo because you might have installed some applicaion from yahoo and the home page was reset to yahoo. Go to internet explorer click on tools go to internet options and under the general tab under home page type the name of the website that you want as your home page.
For the other part regarding the net connectivity check for the settings for connectivity on the system and the router.

Yahoo webpage cannot display


You are having connectivity problems. Are you sure you have internet connection?

Try to open a command prompt and try to ping websites type:

ping yahoo.com

or

ping google.com

If they give you a 'request timed out' result, then you have no internet connection.
Check for network cables that should be properly plugged.

How do I install my Logitech webcam? My niece uses Yahoo Messenger, but when I tried to install it, my home page chanaged to Yahoo and numerous popups appear daily.


Hello,

Let me explain the procedure on how to install the Webcam.

Procedure is same for all Brand Webcams.

First disconnect the Webcam from the Computer. Insert the Webcam driver disks and follow onscreen steps to complete the installtion.

In between the installtion, it will ask you to connect the Webcam. There you have to connect the Webcam, then small installtion will run and Cam will be ready to use.

If it won't ask you to connect the Webcam, then after completing the installtion you can connect the cam.

Comming to the Home page and POPups issue.

While installing the Webcam driver by following the onscreen steps, somewhere there will be checks for "Set Yahoo as home page" or "Install yahoo or Google tool bar etc" you have to uncheck all those kind of things while installing the driver software.

Anyhow, I will also provide steps on how to change the Internet explorer home page and Block POPups.

Here are the steps to change the Home page of Internet Explorer:

1. Open Internete explorer.

2. Click on Tools Menu--Internet Options.

3. Under Homepage, Enter the Website you want to set as default and press Enter (Eg: www.google.com)

4. Click Apply--ok

To block the POPUPs:

1. Open Internete explorer.

2. Click on Tools Menu--Internet Options.

3. Click on Privacy Tab

4. Check box for BLOCK POPUPS

5. Click Apply--Ok.

Hope that helps you!!
