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 The problem was that my Nvidia graphics driver was out of date.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.

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

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 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 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.

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

Re-install the Internet Explorer (you might need the Windows XP Installation CD)
