Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition English for PC

Recently upgraded itunes - now problems with internet explorer.

I recently upgraded my itunes to the newest version. Since then I cannot access gotomypc. Specifically I can't download the viewer file. My internet seems to work fine - but I can't download executable files. ( I also couldn't download a java update) I have Windows XP and Norton. I've already tried turing off the Norton firewall but that doesn't work. I read somewhere that perhaps outpost firewall is automatically downloaded with the upgrade but I can't seem to find it on my computer to uninstall. (I've already uninstalled the Bonjour package with itunes.) Please help!

Okay there are several problems that could be preventing you from downloading .exe files. First of all Norton (Like many other anti virus software's) continue to run even when you disable them. They have what you might call a protection mode. So My first step of advice is to completely uninstall Norton, and attempt to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Tell me if you still can not download exe files I will continue to assist you, but you must check on a daily basis to see if I have gotten back to you, If I do not get a response I will assume that your problem is resolved.

Thank You,

I lost my emails since I upgraded from windoows xp to windows 7


Features available through Yahoo! Mail include unlimited storage, the ability to view photos and videos from your inbox and the ability to send 50 files or 100MB worth of attachments in a single email.

You can also access Yahoo!'s instant messaging software from your inbox and check email on your mobile phone and other Internet-enabled devices.

Before signing up for Yahoo! mail, check its compatibility with your version of Internet Explorer.Standard Yahoo! Mail


Yahoo! Mail's standard interface works with Internet Explorer 7 and higher. However, Internet Explorer 7 users may be unable to use the reply bar, slideshows or Yahoo! Messenger from their inbox.

To access these features, use at least Internet Explorer 9. All Internet Explorer users must have Windows 7, XP or Vista to use the standard form of Yahoo! mail. Mac operating systems using Internet Explorer are not supported by the current version of Yahoo! Mail.
Older Option


Users who want to use Yahoo! Mail Classic will find it compatible with Internet Explorer 6, as well as newer versions of the browser.

Yahoo! announced to customers in July 2011 that it would soon stop supporting Internet Explorer 6. Yahoo! Mail Classic works with Windows 2000, XP and Vista, as well as Windows 7.

Yahoo! Mail Classic lacks many of the upgrades found in the current version of the email program.

Upgrades
While Yahoo! Mail supports older versions of Internet Explorer, the company recommends that users upgrade to the most current version.

Yahoo! says using the newest browser software provides more speed and added protection against viruses and software.
Enabling ActiveX

If you plan to use the current version of Yahoo! Mail on a Windows machine, you'll want to enable your computer's ActiveX controls so you can access all the features of the email program.

To do this, go to the "Tools" menu or the gear symbol in Internet Explorer, then select "Internet Options" and "Security."

Click on "Internet," then "Custom Level."
Scroll down to "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins" and "Script ActiveX Controls Marked Safe for Scripting." Enable each of these options and save your settings.

Reboot Internet Explorer.

You can do either of two things:
In Internet Explorer, choose [Internet Options] under the [Tools] menu selection.
[Advanded] tab
scroll down to the "Security' section
UN-check the "Warn about invalid site certificates"
[OK] [OK] [OK]
close and restart Internet Explorer.

#2:
If not satisfied with iE8, you can un-install it and the previous version that you had will re-install itself (and keep all your favorites, etc. intact).
[Start] [Control Panel]
[Add/Remove Programs]
Scroll most of the way down to [Windows Internet Explorer 8]
[Remove]

QB pro 2005 and Internet Explorer 8


As with all evolving software (as the well written ones are), as you update one you'll invariable need to update others. If you want QB Pro 2005 to work properly, you'll have to contact Intuit for any patches to their software to make it compatible with IE8. I suspect that Intuit would rather sell you an upgrade to their most recent version of QB Pro (hence lightening your wallet substantially). If there's functionality in IE8 that you absolutely HAVE to have, you'll probably be stuck paying for the QB Pro upgrade. Otherwise, you can simply stick with IE6 or 7 (as you've already reverted back to). Sorry there's not a better answer.

It sounds like you may have recently updated your iTunes software. You may want to try uninstalling any current iTunes software and then install the newest version. Before you install you may want to turn off your firewall and disable your virus software (be sure to turn everything back on after the install). Anti virus programs and windows firewall can play havoc with software upgrades and downloads from the internet. Hope this helps!

This is a common problem for the newer version of itunes. Did you recently upgrade your itunes? If so I would recommend trying to download an older version online and see if that fixes your problem.

Internet Explorer won't launch after a hard reset


Is it picking up a good IP address? Are the access points encrypted? You would need to set up the Wi-Fi on the PDA to the specifications of the WAP. if Internet Explorer is not loading, I suspect that there is a problem either with the image in ROM or else with the part of the RAM which is used to hold user data for Internet Explorer. Have you recently upgraded the ROM? The upgrade may not have worked properly perhaps. Maybe try a reflash of the ROM image. Do you get any error message or does the operating system go round in a loop and never come out?
