Microsoft has discovered a drastict error in internet explorer, most websites have made IE succeptable to this problem... They have released an update to fix it log into www.microsoft.com and sownload the patch for the IE exploit. I think you will find that the propper answer to your problem..


But I'd recommend you do not use IE as most people dont anymore,, use modzilla firefox, its faster and more stable.. ITS FREE AND THE BEST BROWSER AROUND

Trick to Increase Internet Explorer Speed window.google_render_ad();

1. Go to Start –> Run and type regedit
2. Select HKEY_CURRENT_USER –> Software –> Microsoft –> Windows –> Current Version –> Internet Settings
3. Increase the values (DECIMAL) from default to a higher value e.g. 10



If we talk about basic procedures :)


1. Disable Indexing Services
Indexing Services is a small little program that uses large amounts of RAM and can often make a computer endlessly loud and noisy. This system process indexes and updates lists of all the files that are on your computer. It does this so that when you do a search for something on your computer, it will search faster by scanning the index lists. If you don’t search your computer often, or even if you do search often, this system service is completely unnecessary. To disable do the following:

  • Go to Start
  • Click Settings
  • Click Control Panel
  • Double-click Add/Remove Programs
  • Click the Add/Remove Window Components
  • Uncheck the Indexing services
  • Click Next
2. Optimise Display Settings
Windows XP can look sexy but displaying all the visual items can waste system resources. To optimise:
  • Go to Start
  • Click Settings
  • Click Control Panel
  • Click System
  • Click Advanced tab
  • In the Performance tab click Settings
  • Leave only the following ticked:
  • Show shadows under menus
  • Show shadows under mouse pointer
  • Show translucent selection rectangle
  • Use drop shadows for icons labels on the desktop
  • Use visual styles on windows and buttons
3. Speedup Folder Browsing
You may have noticed that everytime you open my computer to browse folders that there is a slight delay. This is because Windows XP automatically searches for network files and printers everytime you open Windows Explorer. To fix this and to increase browsing significantly:
  • Open My Computer
  • Click on Tools menu
  • Click on Folder Options
  • Click on the View tab.
  • Uncheck the Automatically search for network folders and printers check box
  • Click Apply
  • Click Ok
  • Reboot your computer

There are certain softwares available in market :))

Have you checked the box in internet options that says delete browsing histry etc. if so this could be your problem as the page is saved as a sort of cookie on your computer and when you reopen the page it has to go to the web to get it versus pulling the last set of pages you were at. had the same problem until i played with my internet options. now it loads just fine.

You are describing a virus or malware infection, there are several new variants out in the last two weeks alone, we were warned last week and most techs switched to firefox foe a few days or Google Chrome. Here is what works, Go over to the AVG website, I'm not going to give you a bunch of links, you can find them on your own I am sure. Get either the "free" version, or the "free trial" of the "home" version. Run it in Safe mode or you won't get all of the junk out. Follow that up with a scan with Spybot "search and destroy" a donation supported software solution that has been around for many years, it is updated daily. All of the software I mentioned is "free" I don't benefit in any way from you use or non use of it. I am just telling you what I would tell my friend or family mamber if they were experiencing the same problem. Just one thing you can do for me is to give me a top rating when you see what these programs find what I believe they will, otherwise have a good evening and glad I could help, Gymowner

When the computer gets too slow, this is often because of installed software, updates, and often because of software that automatically starts on startup.
Ofthen the best thing to do in this case is a complete backup of your files, and a full Windows reinstall, after formatting the hard disk drive.

This can be cause by some virus , malware and spyware that can be running on your computerm, first thing to try here is to run a good anti virus like Avast and anti malware software ike Malwarebytes, then after that check if you still have problem then if still slow using IE better try a different browser like Firefox and check if it will be working fine...

If there are viruses on his computer that is the problem. The computer is probably sending information back to the individual who put the virus on the computer.

Download avast! home edition (freeware) from www.avast.com. Install it on the computer with problems. After installed, open My Computer and right click on the C drive. Select Scan C now...

A box will open and the files will all be scanned and it will notify you of any problems. Let it delete any problems found.

1st: can't open gmail w ie; 2nd ie keeps shutting down


Hi, It seems that you might have installed some addons for IE and now you are in the situation. All you need to do it open Internet Options from Control Panel. Then in Advanced tab, click on Reset. Resetting Internet Explorer resets all settings to manufactures' default and in the process you will lose all saved passwords on Internet Explorer and you will have to re-enter them again upon use. Once done, fire-up IE and click on Tools menu > Internet Options and reset IE from Advanced tab once again from here as well. It means you will reset IE two times, first from Control Panel and then from IE window itself. Once done try to use IE and see the result.
However there are few addons available with Mozilla Firefox that resembles IE inside and opens all webpages that requires IE only. Download Coral IE Tab from: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10909
Installed the addons and switch the view to IE to open all webpages that supports IE only.
Cheers!

Hi,

After installing (MS IE 7 or MS IE 8) browser on the computer that is connected to the HP product,This issue occurs on some HP products. The MS IE 7 or 8 browsers might be incompatible with HP Director
Follow these steps to use a workaround to open HP Director each time you use the software. These steps must be repeated each time you use HP Director.

From the desktop : On your computer's desktop, look for the HP Director icon ( ), and then double-click it. 
From the Windows taskbar : Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP or Hewlett-Packard folder, and then click HP Director .
Although HP Director does not appear to be open , it is open and loaded into the computer's memory, but it does not open in a new window as usual.
2-Without navigating to another open window, press Alt and Space bar at the same time. 
The Shortcut menu displays near the top-left corner of the computer.
Figure 1: Shortcut menu

If the Shortcut menu does not open, repeat steps 1 and 2 until it does.
3-Select Minimize from the Shortcut menu. 
HP Director displays (minimizes) as an item on the taskbar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
If HP Director does not minimize, click Minimize again until it does.
4-Click the HP Director icon on the taskbar ( ). The software opens and functions normally. NOTE: The HP Director window and icons might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.

It won't connect


Seems like the Operating System (is it Windows XP) may have encountered errors loading the native drivers for your player when in MTP mode, or the Windows Media Player version on the PC your plugging your player in is Windows 9 or below. The minimum requirements of the E250 is Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Media Player 10 or above. Falling short of this minimum requirement may cause your player not to be properly recognized. But assuming that the PC you're using the player with meets all the requirements, try to re-load the native driver by plugging your player to the PC and doing the following: Step 1: Right-click on the "My Computer" icon, then select "Manage". This will open the "Computer Management" window. Step 2: Left-click on "Device Manager" Your player comes in two modes -- MTP and MSC -- and is how Windows XP recognizes your player depends on which mode it is set in. To access the modes on your E250, use the menu and navigate as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode If your player is currently in MTP mode, then try this: (1) Left-click in "Windows Portable Device". You should find your E250 indicated there. Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the E250 and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect If your player is currently in MSC mode, then try this: (1): Left-click in "Universal Serial Bus Controller". You should find a "Mass Storage Device" there (make sure that the E250 is the only device plugged in to your PC at this time). Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the "Mass Storage" and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect Step 3: Unplug your E250 and plug it back in. This would force Windows to re-load the driver. 90-99% of the time, it would re-load the native drivers correctly. I hope this works.
