Locate and delete the file 'downloads.sqlite' from the Firefox Directory, and if it exists, 'downloads.rdf'.


If this doesn't work, try the Tips Here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_save_or_download_files

How do you download the pc software ?


Typically the easiest way to download pc software (or any other file for that matter) is to use your web browser (ex: Firefox or Windows Explorer) find the file you want and click on the file name or download button on the web page.

Free vista repair download and free repair if you wherll


First, please make sure that you have the latest firmware and drivers available for your CD/DVD-ROM drive. This can be done by visiting the CD/DVD-ROM manufacturers website.
Then, clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.
If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):
(Internet Explorer)
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.
(Mozilla Firefox)
1. Open Firefox.
2. Click on Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.

- Empty your recycle bin

- Run Scandisk
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Scandisk
3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
4. Click Standard
5. Check Automatically fix errors.
6. Click Start

- Run Defrag
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Disk Defragmenter
3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.

Flash player plugin not recognized under Mandriva


1. Download the plugin to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file. Download link >

http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Utilities/Adobe-Flash-Player-for-Linux-18853.shtml

2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
3. Quit your browser.
4. Remove all existing Adobe Flash Player installations from the system.
5. Unpackage the file. A directory with contains libflashplayer.so will be created.
6. Copy libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins. Create the 'plugins' folder if it does not exist yet.
7. Launch your brower. To verify installation in Firefox choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.

Hope this solves your problem, please let me know as I was also an ex-windows user and the switch over requires allot of new learning for the linux environment.

Since update I can not access add/remove, downloads, Firefox, or help on ubuntu OS.


I have never heard of this til now. It might be a stuck package? You can try booting into recovery mode by hitting the esc key at boot time and selecting the top line that ends in "recovery mode" then af the next menu select "fix broken packages". Did you have Firefox 2 and 3 installed or just one of them? Is Firefox running in gnome system monitor after you start it and maybe just not showing the window? The only other thing I can think of to try would be to make a new user and log into that user and try it.

Internet explorer facing error message of send to microsoft


try downloading and installing this update from microsoft:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2996b9b6-03ff-4636-861a-46b3eac7a305&displaylang=en

Afterwards, reboot, and try your browser; if it still does the same thing (doesnt matter if it is firefox or IE) write back and we can go thru your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs.
Another note...Firefox 3 is available from Mozilla, here is that link:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/?utm_id=Q108&utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&gclid=CI_1qpDBn5QCFQmdnAodhUiYfw

also, have you checked for critical updates for XP from Microsoft?

Malfunctioning


Go to
http://technet.microsoft.com/sv-se/sysinternals/cb56073f-62a3-4ed8-9dd6-40c84cb9e2f5(en-us).aspx

and download process explorer.
Start it, and use the 'target' icon (to the right of the binoculars)
and 'drag' the icon to the command-box like window.
Then process explorer will tell you which program or process is causing this window to appear.
Find this program or process in windows file explorer and delete it.
Done!
Tip.
Also download autoruns, a program that shows ALL autostarting programs, much better than win 98's msconfig
