Question about Microsoft Windows 95 + Internet Explorer for PC
Please help my boyfriend has a big problam with his laptop he has window xp sevice pack 3. the problam is that a while ago when logging in to facebook on window explorer, it wouldnt let him click cetain links, thinking this could be a facebook problam he tested it on other genral site not social networks and found the same problam, we also notice that the media player had lost all his files and would not play, there volume control icon on the pc has also gone missing.
we looked this proplam up and found a site that seemed to be like ours and it told ups the problam was jave had gone and to download a new one also a new media player and the pc would not download any of them. so we tryed to re install window explorer to see if this would rectifie the problam, it did not.
another site gave him a solution involving winrar but the step by step info given would not work and aleted us,by sayin files were currupt and nothing we have tryed has worked, also pc slow and restarts itself sometimes please help.
ps we downloaded firefox and can enter link and thing on that ok, just not anything involving jave r media player plug ins.
Ok, if you dont have viruses, or you dont think you have some... try this:
1. boot into safe mode, and do a virus scan /some viruses can not be detected by a normal scan/ note: to enter safe mode, pres F8 constantly, while your system is startin, /as soon as you turn it on/
2. download a nice litle program called Tune Up Utilities 2008...
and check fot errors with it, it doesnt serach for any viruses, but it is wery helpfull in serching for system errors, it helped me a 1000 times :) if you can not find it, try some of these LINKS
