I can NOT download ANYTHING not even the fixya what can be the problem?

Hey Charlie, try the following:

  • Make sure you have the most up-to-date version of your browser by checking the version under "Help-About" in the menus.
  • go to links below for Internet Explorer and Firefox and Chrome
  • Download Web Browser Internet Explorer
  • Download Firefox Free Web Browser
  • Get fast free web browser (Google Chrome)
  • You might also use the above links to install a new browser to see if that makes a difference in downloading.
  • If you still cannot download even from these sites, try to right-click on the link and select the "Save link as..." option from the menu that pops open and try saving it to your desktop.
This is the simplest start to your solution because I am not able to look at your computer. I hope it helps!

Shuts down immediatley after booting up

I can assume from your description and this "click" sound that you are facing an HDD problem. I would suggest downloading Hiren's BootCD from this link. Burn the content on a disk and boot up from it. Then start some of the HDD tests like HDD Regenerator and examine the results.I hope this helps!

Hey, ever since my system upgraded to explorer 9, it has been really slow, why is it doing this, i just bought my computer a week ago and i dont download anything, so what would be the reason for it...

If you are on a router with other computers if someone else is using Torrents it will slow down all the computers on the network even if you are not downloading anything will slow it down, Explorer 9 go to control panel then add remove programmes and un-install it. before you un-install explorer 9 make sure you download google chrome by using this link as its faster than most browsers out there and will speed up your computer too.

My acer aspire one keep shutting how and how it not even boothing up

1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

without wifi your going to need some sort of internet access to download anything, check the sides for an Ethernet port, plug it in, do your business.
