I keep getting kick off of certain web sites and losing connections and I can't get my pc printer to work since I had viruses removed
I recently had my pc worked on. I had viruses removed. I have a fairly old compaq, pc. I no longer have the disk that would have come with it for down-loads such as software etc. the pc is about 10 yrs ols. I use a persario,5000. I also have a compaq printer again the disk is no loger to be found. Being of little knowledge in the pc world. I can't get my printer to operate and with the pc, I have trouble staying on line with simple things such as just playing chess. What am I missing? Is there a free sight I should go to? I saw that compaq wants $1.99 per minute to talk to some-one live for help. Thats a price for adult only sights. Can you help. Thank- You
Re: I keep getting kick off of certain web sites and...
As far as the printer goes you should be able to type the printer name into google and find the driver and install disk for it so that you can reinstall it. And as far as getting kicked off line i would just clear your cookies, temporary file and such under your internet explorer. Go to tools/internet options and delete... or it will be seperated with a delete cookies and a tab for delete files. No worries this will not harm your pc what so ever. If anything it will speed your browsing abilities.

There may be many reasons behind this :-
1. Might be site is down at that time.
2. Probably there might me something on your computer like any virus or even may be an antivirus which is trying to close the Pinterest.
3. Also a full refresh for the site can be done by pressing ctrl+F5.
4. There might be a possibility that you have an outdated version of browser.
5. Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page.
In some cases it is not always the signal strength as it is the updated drivers necessary to communicate with the computer system. Go to the manufactures web site and look for updates. Make certain your Windows updates are current also. If necessary, delete the Printer and reinstall it again. You may try to go to control panel/ devices. Pull up the Printer line and hit update drivers.
There is a low-level problem in the client or the Web server or
both. 95% of the time this is because of a problem on the client system e.g.
there is something unstable on your PC running the Web browser.
Is your PC secure ?. If your PC is not well-protected, then
all kinds of problems may occur - including HTTP 400 errors. If you run
Windows, stay uptodate with automatic security updates from Microsoft and
possibly consider getting a registry cleaner. Always have good anti-virus and
spyware protection. Invest in a hardware firewall if you can afford one. Be
sensible surfing the Web - block pop-up windows and avoid bad sites. If your PC
security is compromised, then Web traffic out from your PC to the Internet may
be secretly corrupted by malware (spyware, viruses, etc.) running on your PC.
This can be difficult for you to detect.
Have you installed web-based software ?. Some social
networking and games sites ask you to download and run software on your PC so
you can interact with other people on the Internet directly (without using your
Web browser). This software, if badly written or even criminal, can corrupt all
HTTP traffic from your PC. Getting rid of that defective software can be
difficult. At worst you may have to reinstall your operating system again
(possibly losing all your personal data on your PC if you do not have
How stable is your Internet connection ?. If you have
recently changed ISPs or your ISP is very slow or unreliable, then Web traffic
from your PC out to any site on the Internet may be corrupt. Your ISP may have
reconfigured some of their setup (e.g. introduced new proxy servers or
cacheing) that is causing some instability. A possible sign of problems here is
if you can not easily browse the Web site of your ISP. You can also try to
check that the Web site you are actually visiting is the one you think you are
visiting. For example, you may have a DNS problem. You can check this using a
'ping' test. A DNS problem may be caused by your ISP or may be on
your own system e.g. in a 'hosts' file.
Do you get the error on more than one Web site ?. If you get
the error on lots of Web sites, this indicates the problem is on your PC, not
on those sites.
Do you get the error using more than one browser ?. If you
have two or more Web browsers installed on your PC and the behaviour is not the
same (one Web browser gives an HTTP 400 error visiting a site, another Web
browser does not give the 400 error visiting the same site), then one of your
browsers may be defective. Try to find an upgrade or security fix for the
problem browser. If you recently changed some configuration options in the
problem browser, try reversing the change to see if that helps.
Do you get the error on big Web sites ?. If you get the
problem on quite a small site, visit some of the bigger sites like Amazon,
Ebay, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo. If you get the problem only on small sites,
it indicates a problem with only those sites or the traffic from your PC to
Do you get the error on simple URLs ?. If you get a problem
with a long complicated URL (such as
http://www.xxx.com?PHPrequest=643&value=dres&cookies=No) but not with a
shorter simpler URL for the same site (such as http://www.xxx.com), this can
indicate a problem with the Web server on the site you are trying to visit.
This is not conclusive evidence, but is a good starting point. Contact the
owners of the Web site and describe the problem to them. You may find for
example the problem occurs with POST methods (you are both submitting data to
the Web site and retrieving data from the Web site), but not with GET methods
(you are only retrieving data from the Web site).
Do you have a cache problem ?. Try clearing your cookies,
browser cache and browsing history in your Web browser. Disable or remove any
third-party cacheing or 'web accelerator' software you installed.
Then try rebooting your PC and any firewall/router you use to connect to the
Internet. That may not fix the error, but at least may eliminate any problem
due to old settings on your PC.
What has changed since you started getting the HTTP 400
problem ?. In general terms, think about what has changed on your PC since you
first started seeing the problem. This may cover any of the items mentioned
above. Work backwards and see if undoing those changes makes any
Some newer viruses block web sites, including sites of most popular virus removal software. If you have a virus removal tool on your machine, unplug from the web and try to run a full scan as the first step.
Yep Formatting certainly will get rid of virus !
But if you do not want to lose your contacts or personals datas you can try free antivirus softwares for symbian phones
also tips to format :
Here’s how you can remove, clear and clean the virus from your Nokia cell phone :
1> Remove the memory card from your cell phone and keep it in a clean and safe place.
2> Turn on your cell phone and key in #7370#
3> Security code prompt comes up, if you have set a security key, then key it in, else key in the default security key which is 12345.
This step is actually hard resetting your mobile phone. Which means that you might lose all data if you have not backed it up and moved it on to the memory card. Hence it is very important that you remove the memory card before performing this process.
Chances are that your memory card may also be infected by the virus. To remove the virus from memory card, put it on a card reader, connect it to your PC, either run one of the latest anti-virus software on it or format it if the anti-virus fails to remove the virus (You’ll end up losing the data here), which should clean it up.
Put the memory card back in your cell phone, restart the cell phone, which is now clean of the virus.
One of the first things to do is download a program called "Malware Bytes" (Google it). Install and run the scanner/cleaner to wipe any nasties off of the machine. You may find that after running this program many of the woes you've described magically go away (especially the slow operation)...
After running your antivirus, clear the virus vault, the reboot, and start the process over again, twice should do it. Also, go to filehip[po.com and download CCleaner and run it. It will help clean out excess build up of unnecessary **** (for lack of space to list all the items included) making your machine run faster and more efficiently. If you continue to have problems, the virus may have damaged the operating system, a system restore or reload will correct this. (Only after removing the virus) If you can't remove the virus, then it has damaged your antivirus software, many of the newer viruses go directly for the antivirus first, then the system. If this is the case the only way to be certain is to completely wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system.
