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.

Why do i keep getting DEP error message each time i close IE8 or a tab?


windows xp has DEP ( data execution prevention ) some viruses etc use that sort of technique and from SP2 onwards I believe it was they included it.

http://www.zensoftware.co.uk/kb/article.aspx?id=10002


Several OSs have no-execute or execute protection. Microsoft has added this as well in SP2 with data execution prevention (DEP). This precents code execution in memory regions already marked as storage. This is a powerful tool against buffer overrun exploits. If a program is failing and you want to disable DEP to see if that is the cause. Here are the steps. (Just disable DEP for the program in question… don’t disable it for your whole system.)
    1. Click Start
    2. Select Control Panel
    3. Select System
    4. Click the Advanced tab
    5. In the Performance region select Settings
    6. Click the Data Execute tab in the dialog box that opens
    7. Select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except for those I select
    8. Click Add.
    9. The open dialog box will open. Browse and select your application.
    10. Click Open
    11. Click Apply
    12. Click Ok
    13. Reboot

Internet Explorer Problem - PLEASE Help!


Hello,
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.
Thanks, Raph30

Buffer overrun in adsubtract pro


From IE toolbar, click tools, internet options. Then click the connections tab. Click lan settings button. uncheck the radio box that says Use a proxy server.

IE will work again, but with no adsubtract. A possible reason the fix didn't immediately work for you is that the dns cache needed to be flushed. accomplish this by clicking start, run, cmd.
in the black box, type ipconfig /flushdns
then press enter.

Error code.


Are you sure it doesn't say Frontpg.exe? I'm not familiar with Frontog.exe, but Frontpg.exe is the primary executable for Microsoft Frontpage.

If it is Frontpg.exe, the first thing I would suggest is to make sure you have any security updates available for your version of Frontpage. I believe you can update that at http://microsoft.update.com as part of Windows Update.

I haven't been able to find any knowledge base articles on this particular error. See if you have all the most recent patches - if not, download the newest ones and see if that helps. If it doesn't help, let me know and I'll try to dig deeper.
