I'm using windows 7 and use firefox. Google was my homepage and somehow? it's not how to I change it back

  1. Open the Control Panel.
  2. Choose Programs, and then beneath the heading Default Programs, click the link Set Your Default Programs.
The window probably should read Set the Computer's Default Programs because you, a human, have no default programs.
Though the default programs inventory isn't specific to Internet programs, you will find Internet programs in the list.

  1. Choose from the list the program you want to use as your web browser.
One example is Firefox.
  1. Choose the option Set This Program As Default.
  2. Click OK.

I understand that you are having issue with the fonts in windows 7 64 bit operating system. You can restore the default font and remove any changes that you've made to your display settings from Appearance and Personalization.
Here's how:

a. Open Fonts by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts.
b. In the left pane, click Font settings.
c. Click Restore default font settings.


This also removes all manual changes that you've made to your display settings.

Refer the links for the information on;

I can't turn on windows firewall. respons message: windows cant running ics service

The Windows Firewall Service not started.
Now to fix:
1. Click Start > Run > Type services.msc
2. Scroll down to Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
3. Double click it.
4. Change startup type to Automatic and Click Start.
5. Click Apply and then OK
6. Reboot.

To reset the Windows Firewall to the factory default state, try this:
Type firewall.cpl in Start, Run dialog.
Click the Advanced tab.
Click the Restore Defaults button.
Click Yes to continue when you see this dialog
Restoring the default settings will delete all settings of Windows Firewall that you have made since Windows was installed. This may cause some programs to stop working.

Alternately, you can use the NETSH command-line to accomplish this:
Open a Command Prompt window and type NETSH FIREWALL RESET
This command resets firewall configuration to default. This provides the same functionality as the Restore Defaults button in the Windows Firewall interface.

Hope it helps.

hello, it sounds like your click buttons are inverted in settings, Try this: go to control panel, double click the mouse icon, select the "Buttons" tab, check settings. These settings are usually in this order:
Left button = Click (default)
Right button = Right-Click (default)
Wheel Button = Instant Viewer (default)
make sure your right click and left click settings are correct there if not you can change them by click on the dropp down and selecting appropriate setting you prefer. You will also see a option of "Restore Default" a quick way to reset to default settings.

I hope this helps, good luck.

Have rec'd email with a jpg file attached How can I open it

JPG, JPEG, are standard picture files. By default windows XP should be able to open them. But, sometimes Email programs block those files (attachments) because of infection potential. Check your mail security settings, specifically, look for a setting that says "block potentially harmful attachments" and uncheck it. then reopen your mail client program.
