Try putting in https://www.microsoft.com


Or www.filehippo.com where you can download a copy of the latest IE to re-install it is case you have a corupted file in the old installation

Finally were you using Zone Labs as a Firewall if so then you may still have their True Vector Monitor running in the background , you need to go into "Search" put in True Vector and delete any files it finds with that name)

Ps

You really wasted your money on Norton , it slows the machine down big style and is a pain

NOD32 Anti Virus is a much better product and a combination of a router with its built in Firewall and the standard Windows Firewall give you as much protection

I cannot load to my epcc.mylabsplus.com


I could & I arrived here "Welcome to Pearson MyLabsPlus", which is a gateway to "El Paso college". (IP address 159.182.164.119). Normally I'd just give you the url using the IP address but it wont work as its a secured link.

My guess is that either your browser is damaged (by malware which is redirecting you though an alternate gateway which doesn't have the DNS record) or your ISP's dns simply doesn't know this URL.

Try to reset internet explorer.

To reset Internet Explorer settings
  1. Close all Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
  2. Reopen Internet Explorer.
  3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet options.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset. ...
  5. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
Network faults
Temporarily change your DNS settings.

  1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type adapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties.

24162751-wxpaklkqiapao3rwyzi1syb2-4-2.jpg 4.Now look at the bottom of the screen you will see preferred DNS press the "Use the following DNS server address" and in the first preferred enter 8.8.8.8 and the second enter 8.8.4.4

This is the IP address of the Google DNS servers which will replace your ISP's one. I have tested Google and it knows your El Paso college gateway IP.

Once you have done that OK it and either do a START>RUN>CMD>ipconfig /renew
or reboot the computer.

Try this fix and if it works you can safely leave the settings as is. It wont make any difference to you normal browsing. If not just re access the settings and click the obtain DNS server automatically.

Why do i continue to lose my connection to the server when playing a game?



LAN Connection Issues and Port Settings LAN-based matches between players on your internal home network are not routed through the Internet or Battle.net servers. Disconnections from LAN matches are attributed to faulty internal wiring or router settings. Log in to your router's administration page via a Web browser and ensure ports 6112 through 6119 TCP are open for traffic flow. If this does not work, check your network wiring and ensure it's properly seated in the computer's and router's Ethernet ports. Corrupt Server List and Virus Attack If you have recently downloaded any maps or connected to privately hosted servers, it's possible you picked up a virus that altered your server file list and is directly causing connection issues. Scan your computer for viruses, using an updated virus definition database. b> Multiple IP Connections b> If you and a friend share a single license or key, disconnects occur if you attempt logging in while the other is playing or vice versa. Key sharing is against the Terms of Use and can lead to an IP ban or restriction. Ensure no one else has access to your CD key or tries to access the game while you are playing to avoid multiple IP disconnects. b> High Latency Disconnects Internet connections with latency over 500 ms can cause disconnects while playing in heavily populated online matches. Alleviate this issue by closing all connection-intensive programs running on your computer. Reconnect to the .net servers with only running on your computer. If you continue experiencing disconnects, visit Speedtest.net and determine whether your latency is above 500 ms. If so, contact your Internet provider for further troubleshooting. Internet crashing b> If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection. Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit. It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.

Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History." Hit "Delete All." Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons." Hit "OK." Close and reopen the browser. b> Disable Add-Ons b> Go to "Start > Search." Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter." The computer will search for any files with this label. Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)." This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash. b> Reset Internet Explorer b> Open the IE browser. Go to "Tools > Internet Options." Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter." Close and reopen the browser. Hope this helps. b>

Http://192.168.1.254/ has been put into my home page browser but nothing happens


IP ADDRESS 192.168.1.254 is the default gateway of an AT&T modem router (RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY) (2WIRE). for this ip address should be able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem and if not your computer is connected to a different network.

1) try connecting the computer to the 2wire RG using a ETHERNET cable (if your connected via wireless)
2) make sure that the DSL light is solid and not blinking.
3) if your computer already connected by a ETHERNET cable, try accessing the same ip address if your able to view the main screen of your 2wire modem it means that your computer will be able to connect to the internet.
4) try this also:
this for internet explorer:
click tools - connections - LAN settings
( if there's a tick mark on PROXY SERVER remove it )
if you do have tick mark on PROXY SERVER then your computer have a virus, because virus can put a tick on PROXY SERVER without you noticing it.
after removing the tick you will be able to connect to the internet again.

I am having trouble connecting to yahoo internet explorer and staying connected,a window keeps comming up saying that the internet explorer has stopped working , my internet works as long as i change my...


Have you upgraded to IE8 = internet explorer 8? When you comnnect to the internet watch your DSL modem and see if your modemis timing out when you try to connect. this means that the interent light will go out while you are trying to connect to yahoo. Other than that I don't know why it is doing it without being where you are to see it. There are a few othe things to try. Clear out your cookie folder and run your virus checker to see if it is a virus problem and last but it seems like you lost your yahoo drivers or cookies and that's why you are not getting a connection to Yahoo. Is yahoo your main connection page? if so it might be that your home page got hijacked and running a virus checker/spam checker should find it.

Internet Applications wont connect - Vista


I am running Windows 7 (the new vista) so I hope I can help. Go to the "Start" button and select "Control Panel". Click on "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing Center". You shouls see something like: Computer =====Network ====== Internet. If there is an "X" on one of the connections, that may help you decide which option further down to try. You can keep me posted if this helps to this point.

Internet explorer cannot be found...


Check if you maybe have some IP and DNS settings to your WL network adapter:

Control panel
Network connections
Right to your WL adapter and click Properties
On the end of the list in the middle you'll find:
Internet protocol (TCP/IP)

Double-click it and set IP and DNS to Automatically. . . .
(OK, and than, again OK).

Check Internet Explorer settings:
Control panel
Internet Options
Click on Security Tab
Set ALL zones to DEFAULT
Click Apply and OK

Regards.
