Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

'Create new website' link on fails to open

I see the following in the bottom bar of the browser ( IE )


what does it means ? what do I do to correct it ? I think shdoclc.dll is an application file of the windows operating system ( XP Professional, version 2002 Service Pack 2 ) of my computer. All other pages on open properly. However, the links related to site builder or editing the site gives me the above mentioned error when clicked.

Kind regards.

    after going to Start > Run > Type in cmd, hitting ok and then typing ipconfig / all as advised - I did not see the words DNS Servers

    I tried resetting through internet options on the control panel but the problem continues.

    The problem continues. However, now I tried to work on my project through Mozilla Firefox. It is working fine.

    I think the problem was in windows system due to some malacious ware causing shdoclc.dll/dnserror which was not allowing IE to open the 'create new website' link on ( displaying error window 'IE - operation aborted' )

    I wonder how these dynamically loaded libraries or dynamic link library ( dll ) file or the windows operating system gets corrupt by adwares, spywares, viruses & trojans affecting Internet Explorer. Is there no builtin protection in Windows or IE to keep such malacious software out of your computer.

    Just buying one more software to get rid of viruses & trojans seems to be the only solution at present

    Thanks for your efforts. I am still looking for a solution.

    No it was not a problem of 404 error message or web page not available. It was giving the following message:

    Internet explorer aborting operation

    I could finally open the desired pages using Mozilla Firefox browser.

    The problem still exists whenever I try to use Internet Explorer.

    Thanks for your efforts.

This is not a problem on your computer. This message shows because a web page you are trying to reach is not available, and so cannot be opened. In the "old days" this would be called a 404 message - file or page not found.

You did not say what the screen itself said; but I believe it will confirm my diagnosis.

It could be a DNS problem.
Goto Start > Run. . . > Type in "cmd" (without the quotes), hit enter or ok.

Type in "ipconfig /all", and look in there besides DNS Servers, if there is not one listed that would be your problem.

If that is not it try Control Panel>internet options>Programs> hit Reset Web Settings

Please tell the results and I will continue to help you the best I can if this is not it.

I am a complete newbie and have to download a large number of photos and images over a 3 month period.i don't know how to download the pics i want or how to download them to a folder

To start from the beginning, we must say that downloading anything using the internet or surfing the net of course needs a Web-Browser or simply a Browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.).
NOTE: The following instructions are just examples, you may try otherwise also.

If you are using Windows platform as the Operating System(OS), so it must have Internet Explorer(IE) pre-installed. Now double-click on 6_19_2012_3_22_39_am.jpg icon to get started. (if not, you may try installing other browsers, and then follow the instructions below. I presume, you have any kind of browser installed, and if I am wrong, please reply with a comment and I will tell you how to install a browser) :D
** I am using IE 9 here to tell you the process, and you may not find all the options if you use older IE versions like 6,7 or 8 ** IE 10 has all these features stated or depicted here**
The Internet Explorer (or other browser) will open with it's defined settings, either showing it's Homepage or a New Tab page. Now press Ctrl+T to open a New tab and in the address bar type to go to Google.
**The address bar image is given at the bottom of this page.**
On the upper-left corner, click on images to go to Google images. In the Blank Field, type anything you wish, and press enter.
For example, I've entered "Niagara Falls at Night", and this is the result.
You can also refine the result using the links on the left side such as, Large, Medium or Black and White etc.
To download the picture you want, right-click on that picture and select "Open in New Tab". This will open the image in a new tab, where on the right side, click on Full size image to get the maximum resolution of the picture. Now in that newly opened tab, right-click anywhere on that picture and select "Save Picture/image as", which will open a new window asking where to save the picture. Choose any location you want (say, Desktop) and click on Save.


The Address bar looks like the following:

In other ways, you can also grab pictures. According to my opinion, the best way is to go to (don't go to images) and type anything (like, Butterfly pictures) and this will give you several results leading to different websites. Go to any site from the list you like, and save the pictures. (To go to any site, simply click on the link or right-click over it and select 'open in a new tab' to open that page in a new tab)
NOTE: As different browsers use different settings and search engines, the surfing experience and the search results may vary a lot when different browsers are used. And again, the above instructions are for the most basic purposes, and these processes can be done in many other different ways.
Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

I think I have a virus or something preventing my computer from connecting to any site or link with Microsoft. I need to update service paks and was able to download them from cnet but cannot run the...

Dear Sir
This is indeed a virus program specifically written to block the browsing to certain sites.

I would like to mention here that any online transaction, made on other than direct bank sites are not advisable as the system files are infected.
Please see the address bar when you type the URL of your bank site, you will be able to see " " rather than "". Please make sure that you access your bank site if you see https in the beginning of the site rather than http. You should also check verisign symbol and lock symbol prior to proceeding any money related transaction. Above checks will ensure you that your transactions are safe.

Now we can discuss the virus problem.
Restart the computer and press F2/F8 to boot in to the safe made. Login as administrator with the passsword which you should be knowing. If you have left your password filed blank. Please change the password by
clicking: start> control panel> user account> administrator> create new password:
enter the desired password twice as asked and save and exit. Make sure that your administrator account should have some password.
Connect to the internet. Download Mozilla web browser-- Firefox Setup3.6.12 free from below link::
Open the location where you have saved the executable file named Firefox Setup3.6.12 Install it by double clicking on the file and it will create a desktop short cut. alternatively you can open it by clicking start>all programs>Mozilla Firefox > Mozilla Firefox
Now type in to the address bar of the Mozilla Browser. Download the microsoft security essential and install it.
You will see the Microsoft Security Essential symbol in the tray of your system (Bottom right side of the screen a small hut ), Now Double click on it and select "update" tab
Now click on " Update" Button and let the Microsoft Security Essential update the virus database. After update, Select to the "Home" tab on the Microsoft Security Essential Main window, at the right side of the window, select " full " as a "scan option" and click on scan now.
The Microsoft Security Essential not only scan the system but also report and replace the infected system files which have gone bad due to viruses. In your case, IE browser setting are now altered by the virus and hence you are not able to access the Microsoft Sites . By doing above steps, you will create an alternate internet channel through Mozilla Browser and whose settings are at default.
I hope by doing this, it is possible to recover the settings without much efforts. After full system scan and fixing of the bugs, restart the computer and login normal way. To update the service pack do the following:
Connect to the internet click start>control panel>Windows update> and select update now
you will be able to update the OS.

Please tell if you need further support

About blank

about:blank is a cheater way of opening a blank homepage when you open up a web browser. Apparently your web browser is set to open up a blank page. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I even use that on occasion as I normally do not want to go to a specific website every time I open up a browser window. You can change this at any time by changing the Internet Options (for IE) or using Tools -> Options in other web browsers.

By the way, some web browsers support other about: pages as well including configuration options in Firefox using about:config.

Need to disable the access of the address bar in IE


You can use frames to keep your URL fixed while still allowing navigation without revealing the actual URL.
Alternatively, As your real intention is to prevent users from modifying the URL, consider implementing URL rewriting to scramble the URL so that the actual file path is not obvious. URL rewriting is the process of intercepting an incoming Web request and automatically redirecting it to a different URL.
Check these links for more info on URL rewriting:
