First of all shut the system down ...
than start it again and when you see the memory chk start hitting the F8 key keep tapping it dont hold it down and when you see the boot optiong select the one that says safe mode with networking
you have to use the arrow keys coz mouse wont work and when selected hit enter
and than when you get the login screen and if you have the option with administrator ... hit admin
and than see if you are able to go through IE
if yes that that means the firewall is stopping the ie and the firefox from connecting to the net
so go ahead and remove the antivirus and the firewall and than restart the system and chk in the normal mode
if you still face the same issue ... that means you have a firewall still which is blocking
if you have a router reset it or disable the firewall in it
that will resolve it

Firefox error for a week (msg is below). IE works but how can I firefox? Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection...


Hi

You don't say which operating system you are using.

It sounds as if something has affected, changed or corrupted your Firefox Browser settings.

Uninstall firefox and all its components from add or remove programs > restart computer > use IE to log on and download and install the latest version of Firefox, watching out for any firewall permission boxes > test firefox and set it as the Default Browser, if you want to.

start > Control Panel > (Add or Remove) Programs > (uninstall a program) > highlight Firefox > Remove all its components > restart computer.

Remeber to regularly downlad and install upgrades, updates andsecurity patches for both browsers to protect from malware.

Download and install good Spyware and Browser protection software such as, for added protection:

Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.org)

SuperAntispyware (www.superantispyware.com)

I hope this helps.

I think the problem isn't the program, but the internet connections.
Make sure your internet connection such as modem properly installed, then make sure it's connected to the line.

Can i use Samsung omnia i900 windows phone as a modem to connect to intenet?


1. install the Samsung Omnia modem driver on your Windows PC - can be found @http://www.samsungmobile.com/promotion/omnia/fr/sub02_xp.jsp
2. if you have installed Active Sync on your Windows PC then make sure that before you connect your mobile device to PC you disable "Allow USB connections" from the Active SyncOption menu
3. after you connect Samsung Omnia to PC, on your mobile device go to START->PROGRAMS->INTERNET SHARING and select the connection type (bluetooth or USB - most commonly used would be USB); tap "Connect". Your Samsung Omnia will connect to the mobile network if you have set up a profile for GPRS/HSDPA according to your billing plan provided by the network operator.

Done a fresh install of windows,but i keep getting internet explorer or fire fox not responding,its so annoying please can anyone help


first verify if you have an internet connection by trying to log in another program like skype or yahoo messenger ..cause if it is a fresh install I am guessing that you didnt get the right driver for the Lan connection (by the way specify what kinda connection you use..cable ...modem..)
lan connection means the network card ..if you are not familiar with the language ...
if you are sure that you have internet connection ..and I mean if you can connect with success with a program like msn yahoo or skype ..and actual comunicate ...let me know ...if you can not ...insert motherboard drivers cd ...go to the device manager by right click on the my computer icon../properties/hardware //and device manager ...if any of the devices appear to be on yellow this means that you have missing drivers...just update them by right click and update driver ...
Also let me know in details what exactly did you done ..and if you installed the drivers...what connection you use to the internet ..and how you have done it ...and if you done this before...

No sound on skype iphone calls


Skype is a high data demand application, thus require fast internet connection, at least 3G (384KBs) but for best performance HSDPA (up to 3.6MBs) recommended. Thus iPhone 3G (S) you need. You may try Fring (not sure if it's compatible with iPhone).

When i try to log in it says "internet explorer not available"


Hi,


If you are using IE - Clear the cache and cookies. Make sure you have the updated Version. Even if you are using Firefox or Safari, you need to have the updated Version. Clear the History, logs and cache from the browser.

If you do not know, how to clear it, let me know. You need to tell me the browser and the Version. You can swap the browser. If you are not using Firefox, Download Firefox and install and use it. Check if that could fix the issue.

Make sure you need to Turn off the Firewall for few minutes till you check this and also make sure, you have a Valid Internet Connection :).

Let me know the update.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I cannot browse the internet with IE


Ok, could be quite simple or more complicated difficult to know at the moment
first its a good idea to check that you can actually connect to sites
if you can then its more likely a problem with explorer
click the start button, then click "run" when the dialouge box appears type "cmd"
A black window should appear type "ping google.com"
C:\Documents and Settings\Nick>ping google.com
Pinging google.com [72.14.207.99] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 72.14.207.99: bytes=32 time=95ms TTL=234
Reply from 72.14.207.99: bytes=32 time=93ms TTL=234
Reply from 72.14.207.99: bytes=32 time=98ms TTL=234

Ping statistics for 72.14.207.99:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 3, Lost = 1 (25% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 93ms, Maximum = 98ms, Average = 95ms
does this appear? Next it would help to know how you connect to the internet i,e wirless router? Which operating system do you use , vista , xp etc ? Which version of internet explore are you using? And also what updates did you install recently was it a service pack update if so was it sp1 or sp2 etc as there are some known issues with update and internet connectivity
see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331906
Another potentialy simple soloution might be to to download another browser like "firefox" from another computer put it on a usb stick and the transfer to your pc, install firefox onto your pc and see if it allows you to connect to websites

Internet Explorer hangs when connecting through USB adapter


That's bizarre.
Run a full virus and spyware scan.
In IE, open Tools/Internet Options/ Connections and make sure the entries are correct-sometimes there are entries from previous connections.
Also open Advanced and Reset IE to defaults.
Under the General Tab, clear the temp files.
It's hard to call this an adapter problem when it works OK other places.
You might want to try Firefox-it's a better browser anyway, and if it works OK it suggests the problem is with IE:
