Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
I have installed all of the Windows Updates current. I have checked all of the cookie/security/pop up settings and Windows Internet Explorer v8 will not open things in a New Window. Any help?
Goto command prompt (start menu -- programs -- accessories), right click and
run as administrator (or use 'Run ...' as administrator).
Type the following command: regsvr32 actxprxy.dll "
See if that works

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.
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

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.
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.
