You need to update your drivers. On a computer that I built I had the same message. The problem was that my Nvidia graphics driver was out of date. I'm not sure what the direct correlation between the two are but as soon as I updated the driver, I stopped recieving the message and IE works fine for me now. If this does not work than try using firefox instead.

V9 took over. I want centurylink back


assuming you're using internet explorer and that you are talking about the home page; simply go into options and change your default home page.

A. Open internet explorer
B. Find the Gear shaped icon in the far upper right hand corner and click it
C. go to "internet options"

The first tab you will see is "General" under this tab you will be able to see and set your home page to any website you would like including century link's website or google.

How to set goggle as default browser


Google is a search engine not a browser.
You can run any browser such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox and get them to default to Google as the default search engine or you can save Google as a Favourite in IE or a Bookmark in Firefox.

To set Google as the default home page in IE.
Open Internet Explorer then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Internet Options
In the General tab click Use current.
Now when you open IE then Google automatically opens.

To set Google as the default home page in Firefox.
Open Firefox then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Options
In the General tab click Use current pages.
Now when you open Firefox then Google automatically opens.

If you are using any other browsers then setting up Google as the default page is configures in a similar method.

My home page has defaulted to one I do not want. How can I reset it back.


Which Internet Browser are you using? Well let me give you instructions for three browsers;

1. Internet Explorer, here I am going to set www.google.com as the home page.
Open the Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options, (click on the general tab if another tab is opened) type in www.google.com as shown below;

and Click Ok, now restart the Internet Explorer and click Home button or by default the Home page will open up.

2. Google Chrome,
Open Google Chrome > click the Tools Button on the Extreme top-Right as shown below and select "Options"

Then on the Basic Tab, do as follows ;

Select the radio button "Open this page" and type in "www.google.com" then click "close"
[you can also select "show home button on the toolbar, so that i'll show up on the toolbar of the googlechrome]
Now Restart googlechrome or click "Home" button, without any problem, google.com will open.
3. Mozilla Firefox.
Open Firefox > Tools > Options > Main > then type in select "show my home page" from > type in www.google.com in the home page box and then click "Ok" as shown below;

Facebook stops working when i click on a tab


There seems to be an issue with your browser or the computer may be effected by spyware or Virus. Are you facing this issue only with Facebook or others website also?
You can try to use any other browser to confirm its a browser issue. Try to switch to google Chrome or Firefox.

If you are using Internet explorer you can try to re-install the Internet explorer by doing the following steps:
Go to control panel
Open Add/Remove programs
Windows component
look for Internet explorer
Un-install the Internet Explorer
Restart the computer.

Go to control panel
Open Add/Remove programs
Windows component
look for Internet explorer
Re-install the Internet Explorer (you might need the Windows XP Installation CD)

Hope this information is helpful to you.

Please make my home page google...I do not know how to do it.


Hello,
Go to control panel and open Internet Options. The first page that pops up will have a section that says Home Page. Type your home page that you want (e.g. http://www.google.com) and click APPLY and then click OK.
Thank you ,
