That sounds like either a virus or a corrupt program, I suggest downloading Avast - free home edition at
http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
to get rid of any viruses. If the software you use to browse the internet has somehow become corrupt you'll be wanting to reinstall it, i suggest using mozilla firefox, found here, www.mozilla.com/firefox/

That should do it, good luck

Hi Pauline,

Try different using a different DNS address. OpenDNS provides free, fast servers that are used by millions. Here's how to do it with and without a router in your set up:

WITHOUT A ROUTER:

Mac OS X

  1. Go to System Preferences.
  2. Click on Network.
  3. Select the first connection in your list and click Advanced.
  4. Select the DNS tab and add 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 to the list of DNS servers.
  5. Click OK

Windows 7

  1. Click the Start Orb, then select Control Panel.
  2. Click on Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Click on your primary connection or Local Area Connection under Active Networks.
  4. Click the Properties button.
    Windows 7 may prompt you for permission to make network setting changes.
  5. Highlight 'Internet Protocol Version 4' and click Properties.
  6. Click the radio button 'Use the following DNS server addresses:' and type 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server fields.
  7. Click OK button, then the Close button, then Close again. Finally, close the Network and Sharing Center window.
    At this point, we highly suggest that you flush your DNS resolver cache and web browser caches to ensure that your new configuration settings take effect.

Windows XP

  1. Select Control Panel from the Start menu.
  2. Click Network Connections from the Control Panel choices.
  3. Choose your connection from the Network Connections window.
    If you have more than one, choose your default/current connection.
  4. Click Properties button.
  5. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties.
  6. Click the radio button Use the following DNS server addresses and type 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server fields.
  7. Click OK

Windows Vista

  1. Click the Start Orb, then select Control Panel.
  2. Click on View network status and tasks.
  3. Click on View status.
  4. Click the Properties button.
  5. Vista may ask for your permission to make changes. If so, click the Continue button.
  6. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), then click the Properties button.
  7. Click the radio button "Use the following DNS server addresses:" and type in OpenDNS addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server fields.
  8. Click the OK button, then the Close button, and the Close button again. Close the Network and Sharing Center window.

WITH A ROUTER:

Generic Router

  1. Open the preferences for your router. Often, the preferences are set in your web browser, via a URL with numbers (example: http://192.168.0.1). You may need a password.
    If you're like us, and you set the router password long ago and cannot remember it now, you can often reset the password to the manufacturer default by pressing a button on the router itself.
    Or preferences may be set via specific application for your router, which you installed on your computer when you added the router.
  2. Find the DNS server settings.
    Scan for the letters DNS next to a field which allows two or three sets of numbers, each broken into four groups of one to three numbers.
  3. Put in the OpenDNS server addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, as your DNS server settings and save/apply.

Linksys Router

  1. Visit the router's IP address in a new browser window.
    http://192.168.1.1 is the default Linksys router IP address.
  2. Enter the Network password.
    The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip user name and type the router's password (admin is the default password, if you haven't changed it) and click the OK button.
  3. Type in OpenDNS addresses, 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220, in Static DNS 1 and Static DNS 2 fields.
  4. Click Save Settings button.

Netgear Router

  1. Type the router's setup URL (http://www.routerlogin.net, http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1) into a web browser address bar.
    http://192.168.1.1 is the default Netgear router IP address.
  2. Enter the password.
  3. Type in OpenDNS addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, in Primary DNS and Secondary DNS fields.
  4. Click Apply button.
  5. Wait for the settings to be updated.

D-Link Router

  1. Visit the router's IP address (http://192.168.0.1) in a new browser window.
    If you are attempting to configure a D-Link router, take note of your computer's Default Gateway IP address. The Default Gateway is the IP address of the D-Link router. By default, it should be 192.168.0.1. Most D-Link devices use the 192.168.0.X range.
  2. Enter the router password.
    Note: if you have not changed the original settings, the default username is admin and the password is blank (nothing).
  3. Click on the Manual Internet Connection Setup button at the bottom.
  4. Enter the OpenDNS addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, in Primary DNS Server and Secondary DNS Server fields.
  5. Click Save Settings button at the top.

How to Disable Google Instant Search Permanently in Firefox


Google state that this instant search feature saves time and effort when you come to search for something on the web.
If you're like me and many other people you will find this feature a pain in the backside when having to click on the right hand side to disable it everytime you open Firefox.
However there is a way to disable this feature permanently from the configuration page inside the browser itself.

Below I will show you how disable Instant search:

Open a new Firefox browser window and type About:Config in the address bar. Press the Enter key. (this is the bar at the top of the page which starts with http://)

Read the warning. Press the "I'll Be Careful, I Promise!" button.

Type Firefox in the blank field labeled Filter.

Double-click on the following entry to open a dialog box: general.useragent.extra.firefox.

Type www.google.com into the blank field. Click the OK button to close the dialog box.

Exit out of the browser window

Now when you open Firefox again you see that the Instant search is not there anymore and won't hinder your browsing experience.


Happy browsing !!!!

Firefox Tricks!


Everybody’s favorite open-source browser, Firefox, is great right out of the box. And by adding some of the awesome extensions available out there, the browser just gets better and better.

But look under the hood, and there are a bunch of hidden (and some not-so-secret) tips and tricks available that will crank Firefox up and pimp your browser. Make it faster, cooler, more efficient. Get to be a Jedi master with the following cool Firefox tricks.


1) More screen space. Make your icons small. Go to View – Toolbar – Customize and check the “Use small icons” box.

2) Smart keywords. If there’s a search you use a lot (let’s say IMDB.com’s people search), this is an awesome tool that not many people use. Right-click on the search box, select “Add a Keyword for this search”, give the keyword a name and an easy-to-type and easy-to-remember shortcut name (let’s say “actor”) and save it. Now, when you want to do an actor search, go to Firefox’s address bar, type “actor” and the name of the actor and press return. Instant search! You can do this with any search box.

3) Keyboard shortcuts. This is where you become a real Jedi. It just takes a little while to learn these, but once you do, your browsing will be super fast. Here are some of the most common (and my personal favs):
  • Space bar (page down)
  • Shift-Space bar (page up)
  • Ctrl+F (find)
  • Alt-N (find next)
  • Ctrl+D (bookmark page)
  • Ctrl+T (new tab)
  • Ctrl+K (go to search box)
  • Ctrl+L (go to address bar)
  • Ctrl+= (increase text size)
  • Ctrl+- (decrease text size)
  • Ctrl-W (close tab)
  • F5 (reload)
  • Alt-Home (go to home page)
4) Auto-complete. This is another keyboard shortcut, but it’s not commonly known and very useful. Go to the address bar (Control-L) and type the name of the site without the “www” or the “.com”. Let’s say “google”. Then press Control-Enter, and it will automatically fill in the “www” and the “.com” and take you there – like magic! For .net addresses, press Shift-Enter, and for .org addresses, press Control-Shift-Enter.

5) Tab navigation. Instead of using the mouse to select different tabs that you have open, use the keyboard. Here are the shortcuts:
  • Ctrl+Tab (rotate forward among tabs)
  • Ctrl+Shft+Tab (rotate to the previous tab)
  • Ctrl+1-9 (choose a number to jump to a specific tab)
6) Mouse shortcuts. Sometimes you’re already using your mouse and it’s easier to use a mouse shortcut than to go back to the keyboard. Master these cool ones:
  • Middle click on link (opens in new tab)
  • Shift-scroll down (previous page)
  • Shift-scroll up (next page)
  • Ctrl-scroll up (decrease text size)
  • Ctrl-scroll down (increase text size)
  • Middle click on a tab (closes tab)
7) Delete items from address bar history. Firefox’s ability to automatically show previous URLs you’ve visited, as you type, in the address bar’s drop-down history menu is very cool. But sometimes you just don’t want those URLs to show up (I won’t ask why). Go to the address bar (Ctrl-L), start typing an address, and the drop-down menu will appear with the URLs of pages you’ve visited with those letters in them. Use the down-arrow to go down to an address you want to delete, and press the Delete key to make it disappear.

8) User chrome. If you really want to trick out your Firefox, you’ll want to create a UserChrome.css file and customize your browser. It’s a bit complicated to get into here, but check out this tutorial.

9) Create a user.js file. Another way to customize Firefox, creating a user.js file can really speed up your browsing. You’ll need to create a text file named user.js in your profile folder (see this to find out where the profile folder is) and see this example user.js file that you can modify. Created by techlifeweb.com, this example explains some of the things you can do in its comments.

10) about:config. The true power user’s tool, about.config isn’t something to mess with if you don’t know what a setting does. You can get to the main configuration screen by putting about:config in the browser’s address bar. See Mozillazine’s about:config tips and screenshots.

11) Add a keyword for a bookmark
. Go to your bookmarks much faster by giving them keywords. Right-click the bookmark and then select Properties. Put a short keyword in the keyword field, save it, and now you can type that keyword in the address bar and it will go to that bookmark.

12) Speed up Firefox. If you have a broadband connection (and most of us do), you can use pipelining to speed up your page loads. This allows Firefox to load multiple things on a page at once, instead of one at a time (by default, it’s optimized for dialup connections). Here’s how:
  • Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Type “network.http” in the filter field, and change the following settings (double-click on them to change them):
  • Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
  • Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
  • Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to a number like 30. This will allow it to make 30 requests at once.
  • Also, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0′. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.
13) Limit RAM usage. If Firefox takes up too much memory on your computer, you can limit the amount of RAM it is allowed to us. Again, go to about:config, filter “browser.cache” and select “browser.cache.disk.capacity”. It’s set to 50000, but you can lower it, depending on how much memory you have. Try 15000 if you have between 512MB and 1GB ram.

14) Reduce RAM usage further for when Firefox is minimized. This setting will move Firefox to your hard drive when you minimize it, taking up much less memory. And there is no noticeable difference in speed when you restore Firefox, so it’s definitely worth a go. Again, go to about:config, right-click anywhere and select New-> Boolean. Name it “config.trim_on_minimize” and set it to TRUE. You have to restart Firefox for these settings to take effect.

15) Move or remove the close tab button. Do you accidentally click on the close button of Firefox’s tabs? You can move them or remove them, again through about:config. Edit the preference for “browser.tabs.closeButtons”. Here are the meanings of each value:
  • 0: Display a close button on the active tab only
  • 1:(Default) Display close buttons on all tabs
  • 2:Don’t display any close buttons
  • 3:Display a single close button at the end of the tab bar (Firefox 1.x behavior)

Google search the web


Hi,

The problem isn't to do with any system configuration or anything, you need to do this from your browser.

In FIREFOX:
Click on the menu in the top right of the browser (this is three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other) and click preferences (the icon is a gear). From here, you should press on the 'General' tab in the 'General', 'Tabs', 'Content' etc. menues. In the box marked 'Home Page' change the address to http://www.google.co.uk and press close. The next time you start firefox that will be your homepage.

In CHROME:
Again you need to press on the menu button which is the three horizontal lines stacked on each other and will be near the top-right hand side of the browser. Click on 'Settings' in the menu that comes up. Look for the section that starts with the header 'On start-up' (it should be near the top). Click the grey circle next to 'Open a specific page or set of pages.' and then click on the blue text 'Set pages'. If there are any pages you want to remove here you should move your mouse over them and you will see a cross appear on the right hand side of the box, click on it to remove that page. In the 'Add a new page' section, click inside the box with the text 'Enter URL...' and again enter http://www.google.co.uk .

I hope this helps!

How to change password for wifi


1 - Enter your router's address in a browser window. In the URL field, enter one of the following numbers based on the model of wireless router you use:
  • 192.168.2.1: Belkin, Microsoft, and SMC:
  • 192.168.0.1: Qwest (AKA CenturyLink), Netgear, DLink, Senao, Trendnet
  • 10.0.1.1: Apple
  • If you don't see your router listed here, search on Google for your router name and include "default IP address" to find the correct information.
  • On a PC, open the command prompt (click on Start > Run/Search for "cmd") and enter ipconfig. Look for the Default Gateway line, and try that number.
  • On a Macintosh, open Network (System Preferences..., Network) and look for Router:<number>. This is your router's IP address.
  • Enter your router's user name and password, if requested. Not all routers require that, but if yours does, it should be listed with the documentation. If your router does require a password, but you didn't set one, the default password is usually "admin." You can usually leave the username field blank.

Go to your settings page. It may be called "settings," or "wireless setup," "preferences," or similar name.

Locate the password setting. It may be a field or tab named "password," "wireless security," "security key," "passphrase," etc. If the field is directly editable, enter your new password. Otherwise, click the tab or button to access the password field.

Enter a new password. If there's a second password field, re-enter your password exactly the same way, capitalizations and all. If not, just enter the password once, but be sure to enter it carefully, and make note of it until you have it memorized.
  • When finished, click "OK," "Apply," "Submit," "Save," or whatever button finishes the process.
  • Close your browser window: your password is changed.

A wireless router is an external computer peripheral that accepts an incoming Internet connection, such as that from a cable modem, and converts it into a local wireless signal, allowing computers in the area with wireless adapters to connect to the Internet.

Netgear is a popular manufacturer of wireless routers; the settings on Netgear routers can be changed by logging in to the router with a Web browser.

Determine your wireless router's IP address. Many Netgear routers are set to 192.168.0.1 by default.

In Windows 7, you can find this IP address by clicking "Start," then typing "cmd" in the search box, without clicking "Enter."

When the search completes, right-click on the command icon and select "Run as administrator." In the window that opens, type "ipconfig" and click enter.

Your router's IP address will be shown on the "Default Gateway" line.
In earlier versions of Windows, click "Start," then "Run," then type "Command" in the box, click "OK," then type "ipconfig" and press enter.

Your router's IP will be listed as the "Default Gateway."
Open an Internet browser and type the router's IP address into the address bar.


Enter your router's username and password if prompted to log in. By default, the user name and password may be "admin" and "password."

Change settings within the router's administrative center as necessary.
There will be several menus available where you can set up security for your router and set various communication options.

Choose to apply or save changes as necessary.
Your router's menus should have plainly visible buttons to apply and/or save changes you make to the settings.

Close the browser window when you are finished making changes.
