    4th attempt to respond. Thank you for the info. It still does the same thing. Now it throws me off to another page at  times.

    I took the advice and downloaded 4 old drivers from Dell. After installation, I was not very hopeful. However, your advice was dead on and I'm happy to report that everything is working as it should. Thanks for the feedback and the solid advice. I'll be sure to pass the word to friends about this site as well as keep it on my favorites should anything else happen to any of our 4 computers here.

    Again..thamnls for the great advice.

I had the same problem with my Dell Inspiron 8600. I stumbled upon this thread and followed the advice. I am pleased to say that the suggestion of uninstalling the keyboard driver and restarting worked great. Thanks!

Go to my computer icon, right click, properties>hardware tab>device manager, then lok down the list to keyboard, click on the + sign and right click on your keyboard and select uninstall.


Restart the notebook and the driver will automatically load again and should type as normal.

My internet speed is really slow. What can i do to speed it up?

mcdevito75 here, Many things can slow up yours or any internet, Try this, from your desktop, click on RE-CYCLE bin and emty it, form your home page, right click tools (top of page) now cerefully, CAREFULLY read every word and delete cookies, and other items you really don"t need right now, check the box next to each item, READ EVERY WORD BEFORE DELETEING ANY THING. After this, from your home page, type in search, Super Anti Spy Ware, they have a free version that I run every day to get rid of potential viruses and internet ads that slow up your computer, READ EVERY WORD BEFORE YOU DO ANTHING. If your not comfortable with doing these things with your computer You may be new to doing these computer functions, then from Start, lower left side of screen, click start, the Help and support, they too can help with internet speed. READ EVERY WORD BEFORE DOING ANY THING WITH YOUR COMPUTER.

I suspect you are using a laptop or notebook with a touchpad.
1) There may be some conflict between the Yahoo software and the touchpad software
2) The touchpad may be over- sensitive
this is adjustable from the Control Panel ( Mouse) I have tapping disabled as I never use it - preferring to left click or double click.
3) Make sure you have the latest driver, which will have any patches, by going into Device Manager, expanding the mouse file & right clicking and selecting "update driver". Use internet option.
4) Download 'Touchfreeze' - its a little piece of software that freezes the cursor when typing.

Messenger Error 80072745

This is sometimes caused by the cache left on Internet Explorer. If your internet's working fine, then follow these steps.
Close MSN Messenger
Open Internet Explorer. Set it to work offline (File > Work Offline)
Close Internet Explorer and reopen it. Now set it to work online (File > Work Offline).
Open Command Prompt (Start > Run > type "cmd" and hit enter)
Type "ipconfig /flushdns". You should recieve a message that your DNS has been successfully flushed.
You should now be able to connect to MSN Messenger. Open MSN and see if the problem is fixed.

I am trying to download windows live messenger, but when i do, it says that i am working offline, even though i have connected to internet!

FYI, just because you see a page open within your Browser, that in itself doesn't mean you're connected to the internet as the page may have been cached (saved). So to verify connectivity try to navigate to another page by clicking a link in the one you're on (such as the download link that gives you the offline error) or typing in a URL to another site and verifying connectivity. Once you have established connectivity to the Internet (not just your network) then try to download Messenger from Microsoft again.
If you have verified connectivity and still get the offline message, then try downloading Messenger from another source, maybe that will help.
