I can't open the website


cant open certain web pages
When browsing the web, there are some instances where you encounter pages that cannot be loaded.
There are several reasons why, ranging from an error on the website itself to the settings on your own computer.
Page Cannot be Found A "Page cannot be found error" may occur when certain Web pages are no longer online.
This can be due to the deletion of the page, or if the page was relocated to a different section without having its links updated.
Firewall Issues
There are some pages that cannot be displayed on your computer simply because they are being blocked by the firewall software installed on your computer.
To remedy the issue, change your firewall settings to allow access to these pages.
Virus or Malware
If you have an anti-virus installed, this will prevent you from accessing pages that may contain possible threats to your computer.
Websites that contain viruses or malware, or so-called "Attack sites" will be blocked from being loaded on your computer.
Connection Timed Out
When you get this error message, it means your internet connection has timed out, which will cause your page not to load.
You can contact your internet service provider to resolve this issue.
Clean Up Cookies on a Computer
Clearing your computer's cookies in Microsoft Internet Explorer is easy.
Clearing your permanently filed cookies will make your computer run a little bit faster, and eliminate the link between you and the websites you frequent.
Cookies are small files that websites store on your computer to remember your account information, login, password and who you are.
If you want to eliminate another party tracking your preferences, read on to learn how to clean up cookies on a computer.

Turn on your computer and allow it to boot up.
Open a Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser.
It doesn't matter what web page first loads.
Locate the "Tools" tab or icon on the top right hand corner of your screen.
Click on the tab or icon, so a drop-down menu appears.
Browse the list and find "Internet Options."
Use your mouse to left click on "Internet Options."

Notice a new box open on your screen.
The bar across the top of this new box should say "Internet Options."
Below this bar will be several tabs.
Use your mouse to left click on the "General" tab.
Scan the box and locate the section titled "Browsing History."
Read the description under browsing history to be sure it includes the option to delete temporary files, browsing history, cookies, saved passwords and web form information.
Under the description, you will see two boxes, "Delete" and "Settings."
Click on the "Delete" button.
A new bow will appear on your screen.
The bar across the top of the box will be labeled "Delete Browsing History."
Notice the options in this box include the ability to delete temporary Internet files, cookies, history, form data and passwords.
Select the button that says "Delete Cookies" if you wish to only delete the cookies data files.
If you would like to get rid of the history list of websites you have visited, all your logins, passwords and form data, select the "Delete All" button at the bottom of the box.
Selecting either "Delete Cookies" or "Delete All" will make another box appear on your screen. You will see a confirmation message asking if you're sure you'd like to complete this action. Select "Yes" or "No."
Selecting "Yes" will allow your computer to delete the cookies.
Deleting these temporary internet files only takes a minute or two.
If you haven't deleted the cookies in awhile a task bar may appear to show you're the progress of the delete.
When the computer is finished, simply close out all the extra boxes that popped up.

Disable Web Content Filters

Web filters are in place to protect a user from Phishing, or the process of a malicious website acquiring sensitive information like passwords from a user, or other confidential information.
They work by checking the sites that you visit against the company's database of known Phishing websites.
Some users feel that this is an invasion of privacy.
You may choose to disable these web content filters, if you already have security software equipped to protect you from Phising sites.
Start the Internet Explorer browser.
Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options". The "Internet Options" window will appear.
Select the "Security" tab and click on "Custom Level". The "Security Settings" window will appear.
Scroll through the settings and locate the "SmartScreen Filter".
Click on the option for "Disable" to turn off the web content filters in Internet Explorer.
Click "OK" to close the "Security Settings" window and save the settings.
Click "OK" to close the "Internet Options" window.
Mozilla Firefox
Start the Mozilla Firefox browser.
Click on "Tools" and select "Options". The "Options" window will appear.
Select the "Security" tab and remove the check-marks next to "Block reported attack sites" and "Block reported web forgeries".
Click "OK" to close the "Options" window and save the settings.

Tip

A Ways to Fast and Free Security Enhancements


Before you spend a dime on security, there are many precautions you can take that will protect you against the most common threats.

* Check Windows update and office update regularly or with your windows & office CD ready. Windows 2000, XP and Vista users can configure automatic updates. Click on the Automatic Updates tab in the System control panel and choose the appropriate options.

* Install a personal firewall. Free versions.

* Install a free spyware blocker. Spybot is also paranoid and ruthless in hunting out tracking cookies.

* Block pop-up spam messages in Windows or others system by disabling the Windows Messenger service (this is unrelated to the instant messaging program). Open Control Panel ] Administrative Tools ] Services and you'll see messenger. Right-click and go to Properties. Set start-up Type to Disabled and press the Stop button. Bye-bye, spam pop-ups! Any good firewall will also stop them.

* Use strong passwords and change them periodically. Passwords should have at least seven characters; the letters and numbers and have at least one symbol. A decent example would be f8izkro@l. This will make it much harder for anyone to gain access to your accounts.

* Of your using Outlook or Outlook Express, use the current version or one with the Outlook Security Update numerous vulnerabilities.

* Buy antivirus software and keep it up to date. If you're not willing to pay, try Free Edition. And doublecheck your AV with the free, online-only scanners available.

* If you have a wireless network, turn on the security features: Use MAC filtering, turn off SSID broadcast, and even use WEP with the biggest key you can get. For more, check out our wireless section or see the expanded coverage in Your Unwired World.

* Join a respectable e-mail security list, such as the one found Security Supersite so that you learn about emerging threats quickly and can take proper precautions.

* Be skeptical of things on the Internet. Don't assume that e-mail a particular person is actually from that person. Don't assume that an attachment is what is says it is. Don't give out your password to anyone, even if that person claims to be from "support".

Fast & Easy Windows Update Fix. Takes Just 2 Minutes (Recommended)

Be sure to disable your anti-virus protection before checking for updates. This very well may be your problem.
or I suggest changing the settings of your automatic updates as that may trigger it to do this for you.

Then disable any other programs that you can by right-clicking the icon in the system tray (next to the time, bottom-right corner of monitor) and selecting 'exit' or 'quit' or something like that.

If you are having a lot of trouble, you can get ahold of Microsoft at http://www.microsoft.com/protect/compute... too.

To change any settings related to Microsoft Update, go to http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security... .

Besides that, I recommend erasing the cookies and internet data. Click START > CONTROL PANEL > INTERNET OPTIONS. Then in the 'general' tab, click DELETE and erase all of the cookies and temporary internet files and such.

If that doesn't work, try rebooting your machine and tap F8 until you get the boot selection menu. Select "Windows Safe Mode with Networking". Try to go online again and see if you can download updates with that configuration.

If it still doesn't work, you can try disabling your browser add-ons that are installed in Internet Explorer. To do this, click START > ALL PROGRAMS > CONTROL PANEL. Open up INTERNET OPTIONS.

Click the GENERAL tab (if not open). Under "Browsing history", click DELETE... and then DELETE ALL. Put a check next to "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons.". Click YES.

While still in the Internet Properties dialog box, click the SECURITY tab. At the bottom of the window, click RESET ALL ZONES TO DEFAULT LEVEL.

Now click the PRIVACY tab. Click the DEFAULT button (unless you are unable to). There is a good chance that it may be unavailable, meaning that you are currently at the recommended privacy settings already.

How can I reinstal Windows Search and Windows Security Centre


Install Windows Security Center


Open Internet Explorer and navigate to the Microsoft Windows Update website.


Click the "Express" button on the main page to have your computer checked for important updates to be installed.


Since Windows Security Center is not installed, it will be detected and installed within the update.


Search the list of updates that will be installed on your Computer and deselect any options besides Windows Security Center that you don't want installed at this time.


Click "Install Updates" to begin the installation process.


Set your computer up for Automatic Updates to keep your computer up to date.

You can do so by clicking "Start" followed by "Control Panel."


Click "Automatic Updates" and select the recommended option.


Click "Apply" followed by "OK" to save the changes and exit the window.


Install Windows Security Center in Windows Vista


Click the "Start" button followed by "All Programs." Scroll through the list and select "Windows Update" from the available options. You can also type "Windows Update" in the search field followed by pressing "Enter" to access it immediately.


Click the "Change Settings" button in the left window pane.


Select the radio button next to "Automatically download and install updates."


Click "OK" when you have finished. Windows will begin to scan your computer and download the necessary updates, one of which will be Windows Security Center if it isn't available on your computer already. When the updates have finished installing, a bubble will pop up in your system tray telling you new updates have installed and your computer needs to be restarted.


Restart your computer and once you log back on to Windows, Security Center will be available. You can access it by clicking the "Start" button and typing "Windows Security Center" in the search field. It will also be available in the "All Programs" software list.


Reinstall Windows Search


If for some reason you've lost Windows Search from your computer, it is possible to reinstall it.

Reinstalling Windows Search will improve the performance and stability of your computer system's indexer.


It will allow you to sort and group results in Windows Explorer more quickly, and will improve the indexing of your online email.


It expands your system's ability to do fast remote queries of file shares, including on Windows XP and Server 2003.

It automatically indexes shared folders and contains improvements in previews for earlier supported operating systems (Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP).


When you type a search term into Windows Search, the results appear quickly.

This is also true for information from emails and their attachments.



Download and install Windows Search on your computer.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/desktopsearch/choose/windowssearch4.mspx?tab=Install%20It

Click on the appropriate link for your version of Windows.


Click "Open" to download the file if you use Vista.

Click "Save" to download the file if you use Windows XP.


Click on "Run" to install Windows Search on your computer.

Follow the prompts to complete Windows Search installation.


Restart your computer.

Windows Search will be available in the Start menu if you use Vista.


If your operating system is Windows XP, use the Deskbar for quick and easy search access to indexed content on your PC or the network.


Personalize Windows Search for an optimal search experience .

Add-ins let you index Outlook saved email, Microsoft networks, Internet Explorer history and Lotus Notes.


Hope this helps

What is the different between xp serrvice pack 1 and 2


A service pack is a collection of all updates released to that point, and often includes new features, as well.

The major enhancements in Windows XP Service Pack 2 include Security Center, Automatic Updates, Windows Firewall, and Internet Explorer.

Security Center is an entirely new feature provided by Windows XP Service Pack 2. The Security Center service runs as a background process in Windows XP and routinely checks the status of the following components:
1. Windows Firewall: Security Center detects whether Windows Firewall is enabled or disabled. Security Center can also detect the presence of some third-party software firewall products.
2. Automatic Updates: Security Center detects the current Automatic Updates setting in Windows XP. If Automatic Updates is turned off or not set to the recommended settings, the Security Center provides appropriate recommendations.
3. Virus Protection: Security Center detects the presence of antivirus software from many third-party organizations. If the information is available, the Security Center service also determines whether the software is up-to-date and whether real-time scanning is turned on.

When Security Center detects an important security condition (such as improper settings), it displays a pop-up notice in the notification area.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 provides several enhancements to the Automatic Updates feature, including the following:
■ The latest version of Automatic Updates offers expanded support for Microsoft products, including Microsoft Office.
■ Previous versions of Automatic Updates could download only critical updates. Now Automatic Updates can download updates in the following categories: security updates, critical updates, update roll-ups, and service packs.
■ Automatic Updates now prioritizes the download of available updates based on the importance and size of the updates. For example, if a large service pack is being downloaded, and a smaller security update is released to address an exploit, that security update will be downloaded more quickly than the service pack.
■ Automatic Updates is now more automated. The need for users to accept End-User License Agreements (EULAs) has been eliminated. Also, the user now has a choice of whether to restart the computer following the installation of updates that might require a restart. Updates that do require a restart can now be consolidated into a single installation so that only one restart is required.

Previous versions of Windows XP include a software-based firewall named Internet Connection Firewall (ICF). After installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, this firewall is replaced by Windows Firewall.
Windows Firewall boasts a number of enhancements, including the following:
1. Windows Firewall is now enabled by default on all network
connections.
2. Windows Firewall provides an interface for configuring global settings that apply to all the connections of the computer.
3. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Firewall supports a new feature that allows you to keep Windows Firewall enabled and also not allow any exceptions; only solicited traffic is allowed. This new feature is intended to create an even more secure environment when connecting to the Internet in a public location or other unsecured location.
4. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, a startup Windows Firewall policy performs stateful packet filtering during startup, so that the computer can perform basic network tasks (such as contacting
DHCP and DNS servers) and still be protected.
5. In previous versions, you could not apply firewall rules based on Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can configure Windows Firewall so that firewall rules apply to IP addresses (or IP address ranges), meaning that only traffic from computers with valid IP addresses is allowed through the firewall.
6. In previous versions, you configure permitted traffic by specifying the TCP and UDP ports used by a service or application. In Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can also configure permitted traffic by specifying the file name of the application. When the application runs, Windows firewall monitors the ports on which the application listens and automatically adds them to the list of allowed incoming traffic.

Internet Explorer:
Windows XP Service Pack 2 introduces a number of new security features to Internet Explorer 6. As with the rest of the enhancements introduced with Windows XP Service Pack 2, most of the updates to Internet Explorer are intended to provide better security.
