Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I'm using IE 7 and Firefox 3. I'm able to pull up all websites i type in but one on my desktop PC. The error I'm getting is "Page Load Error" Network Timeout The server at .com is taking too long to respond. However on my phone through sprint and on my laptop through same Comcast modem I use for my PC I'm able to see the site. It's not a the host server otherwise i wouldn't be able to pull it up on my phone and laptop, or so i think. I've tried turning off my firewall and still i can not pull up site. I've Talked to tech of host site. Went to www.pagewash.com - That site removes all ISP proxy settings and runs it thru a clean proxy. It worked there so he told me problem is on the network somewhere between my computer and the ISP or the ISP out to the net. Unfortunately my ISP does not have "real" techs and i'm still talking with people reading canned answers.

When I am on the internet most times I get an error that an unexpected error has occured & my browser page just closes & dissapears. I have internet exployer 7. Can someone please help me.


Yes its a problem with Internet Explorer (IE). Try to upgrade it to latest version.

OR you can switch to another browser like Firefox, Opera or Chrome. These load pages faster, don't hang and yes they don't close pages by themselves.

How do i change my homepage to Yahoo?


Bring up the browser window and let it load to whatever page it is set for. Once it loads, click up in the address bar and type in www.Yahoo.com and click enter. When the Yahoo screen loads, click on the "Tools" column and scroll down to "Internet Options". In this window the first area you see is the homepage tab. Click on "Use Current", this will make the current page your home page, which is Yahoo. Click apply and OK.

Fixing my homepage


I'm assuming you mean to say that you are wanting your browser's default page (the page it opens to) to be set to www.optonline.net

Using IE:

Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> General , there in the box available for home page type in the address of the website you want as your home page.

-or-

Using Mozilla (Firefox):
Go to Tools -> Options ->Main , there in the box type in the address of your favorite web site.

Windows XP SP3 IE v7.0


When you say download do you mean any file you try to download? Have you tried using another browser such as firefox? If you do not have firefox installed I assume you cannot download it to try. If this is the case I would suggest going to a friend or family members computer & downloading it to a thumbdrive or cd then take it home & install it. If you can download from firefox. Then I would uninstall IE V 7 from add remove programs & then re install it. I'm assuming you have tried the usual things like restarting your computer
