Problems in restore XP, Sartup of Mozilla

When I installed and opend Mozilla Forefox, it is taking much much more time than normal to open up and then no websites are accessible.Some 'Add-on file is missing' that was the message I get and the second one is I'm not able to restore OS XP to a previous date. I thought that would solve the previous problem too. What do I do. i dont have a installation cd for XP either.

    Uninstall Firefox, go to and download the latest version of Firefox and reinstall it.

When trying to go to firefox or upgrade/download it shows the following message (also showing when I try to link in outlook 2007)Failed to read the configuration file. Please contact your system admin

Uninstall Mozilla Firefox like you normally would and then you need to go DELETE THE FOLDER for Mozilla under C:\Program FIles\ to make sure EVERYTHING is gone. Then try re-installing Firefox again and let us know.

Sorry, I stated the question wrong. I do not want game cd's to open up in word pad format because I do not understand the computer language and can't get them to install right.

I still don't understand your question or problem but here is what I get out of it.

First of all Mozilla Firefox is your Internet Browser, not your Internet Service. Your Internet Service is provided by who you pay the monthly check to each month.

Now, it sounds like you have downloaded and installed something that you did not want, so you want to take it off.

If that is true, click Start and in the Search Box type in: System Restore. Look up towards the top and the search results will appear and you can click on System Restore. System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) to roll your system back to before you started having problems. System Restore will not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected).

So in your case just select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you downloaded and installed the program you don't want.

You should try to use another browser because most of these problems are related to your internet browser :)

Post-Restore Problems

Undo the restoration. This will solve your issue. The problems you are facing are due to the false restoration date. The restored date is not good.
