Hi,

I think you may have an add-on that is crashing IE. Can you get into IE at all? If so - click on Tools >> Manage Add-Ons and disable any add ons. IE 7 also has a "no add-ons mode" which you can get to via Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and then click on Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

Scan your PC with some ad-aware removal tools. Ad-Aware & Spybot. You can download them on another computer and save them to a disk or USB drive. It might also be worth checking Control Panel >> Add/Remove Programs to see if there's anything in there that shouldn't be.

My personal recommendation is to use Firefox in future. But make sure you scan and fix the problem, and then Immunize, with Spybot first.

Hope this helps

Only when I am on farmville..It says I have on internet?


Is your Adobe Flash player up to date ?
Have you tried to clear your cache ?

Are you able to play other games apart from Farmville?
Do you get any error message or error code? Here are a few things that you can try -

a) Check the Internet Connection. Internet games need a good internet speed to buffer and load.
b) Try to open the game on a different browser and a different computer. Check if the issue persists.
c) Close other applications and open windows and then try to load Farmville.
Method -

You need to perform the steps from the article mentioned below-

Additionally, you may refer the steps by Sandeep Ghatuary from the thread mentioned below-

Note: The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might reset security settings or privacy settings that you added to the list of Trusted Sites. The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might also reset parental control settings. We recommend that you note these sites before you use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature.

I have been trying to get on facebook but everytime I try an error message from Internet Explorer pops up saying "cannot display webpage" Please help


Open Internet Explorer, click on tools then internet options. In the first tab, under browsing history select delete... have check marks in everything except Form data, Passwords, and InPrivate Filtering data. Now click delete. Depending on how full you histroy is, this can take a bit to complete. Once completed, close IE and try to log back into facebook. If this still does not work, search for facebook on google, and try again. If the search option works, delete you current shortcut to facebook and re-add from the open page.


I hope this helps

When I try to open Call of duty it apperas the error 998 and the message buffer overrun detected


Any time I've seen this error appear when playing a game it is caused by a bad graphics driver. I would suggest going to the website of the retailer that your graphics devices comes from and updating to the most recent driver and giving it a shot.

Many different things can cause buffer overruns. This is a common attack that hackers use to exploit bad C code. In this case, since it's a video game...I'm going to say graphics driver.

You can actually see an example of the same behavior here:

I recommend running an anti-virus and anti-spyware program. In the case this does not work, the next solution is to reinstall Windows XP. This problem is associated with a computer possiblly corrupted with a virus or trojan.
Let me know if you need any suggestion on anti-virus and anti-spyware programs, or any questions about reinstalling Windows XP.
