This might be a virus problem.
Try to restore your PC to an earlier system checkpoint.


Restore to when everything was fine.

Whenever I open GoogleChrome this appears: Error 138 (net::ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED) I accidentally blocked the connection of google chrome to the internet & can't reverse it. I also added it to...


This is most likely your antivirus program (eg. McAfee Total Protection) blocking Chrome from accessing the internet. The firewall is blocking Google Chrome because the antivirus program no longer recognizes it - even though it is on the list of permitted programs. To fix this problem:
1. Click on Firewall > Settings 2. Click on Program Permissions 3. Click Google Chrome & the Delete button 4. Click the Add button 5. Browse for the Google Chrome.exe file (it should be in your User folder>App Data>Local>Google>Chrome>Application 6. Add the program and you're done! Please vote, if you like solution..

Motorola cliq xt, download error from internet brower


I had/have the same problem. It all has to do with the type of file (video) Mpeg, MP3, MP4 etc.... You can download a file converter but not a real easy fix. I found websites that have the correct file types, you just have to keep trying different sites or get the converter.

Chrome Adobe Error


Fresh out of Google suppot -

"Download the flash player for windows xpi file - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/xpi/current/flashplayer-win.xpi

"Rename the file to .zip

"Explore the .zip file and you will see a couple files, flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll, which you have to copy.

"Open another explorer window and go to the plugins folder of your google chrome browser, which might be at -
C/Documents and settings//Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/Plugins/

"Paste both the files in this plugins folder and then close your Chrome browser and restart it

Those instructions worked fine for me, but I had to make one small change to the advice given there - Vista uses a different folder structure, so I had to paste the two necessary files into C:\Users\{Username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins

The folder Plugins did not exist when I navigated my way there, so I created it and dropped the two files in, restarted the Chrome browser and ... Voila! Working fine

Other thing I’d say is that my first step was to visit the Chrome Help pages, in particular, http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=95697&cbid=1798iqe1e7223&src=cb&lev=answer

and installed Java 6 v 10 like they suggested, before doing the Flash business

Remove file


Hi,
Here is more info on the critter:

http://spywarefiles.prevx.com/spywarefiles.asp?FXC=BHJI036815472

1) Reboot windows in SAFE mode by pressing F8 during the
boot repeatedly.

2) Use a virus remover like AVG or Kaspersky

3) Alternately remove the files manually.

4) If the files refuse to be removed, reporting a locked file
error, download a product called file unlocker:

a) unlocker1.8.5.exe or
b) who locked me from: http://www.dr-hoiby.com or
c) killbox.exe from: vbtechcd@gmail.com
d) File Assasin from:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/fileassassin.php

5) Any of these utilities will delete the file by brute foerce
if necessary

6) Download Mike Lin's Startup monitor (all 3)

a) Control panel applet
b) Stand alone program
c) Resident startup monitor

These three utilities will allow you to audit startup keys
in your registry and automatically stop rogue programs
from installing themselves without your permission.

7) Remove all suspicious programs from registry startup
locations:

HKLM = HKey Local Machine
HKCU = HKey Current User ....

Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current_Version ...

Run, RunOnce, RunOnceEx, Run SErvice, etc...

8) Install a reputable antivirus (with a license) and keep it
up to date:

e.g. AVG, Kaspersky, McAfee etc.

9) Disable most of the resident monitor function, because
these tend to slow your system down, BUT ....

Manually scan all downloaded files BEFORE
opening them

!!!!!!!!


10) Download and install two free anti-spyware utilities:

AdAware by LafaSoft
SpyBot Search and Destroy

make sure you get these from the official sites,
beware of evil lookalikes.

11) Go to winternals WEB site, formerly Sysinternals,
and download security utilities by Mark Russinovich
(now at Microsoft)

Anti-rootkit and scanners for ADS
(Alternate Data Streams)

12) Go to F-Secure web-site, and download another anti-
root-kit utility called black light.

13) Download and install the Mozilla Firefox WEB browser,
never use Internet explorer (any version) except for
Microsoft updates

14) Install the following Firefox security plug-ins:

AddBlock Plus
ColorFul Tabs
Finkan Secure Browsing
Flash Block
Google Icon
NoScript (Very important, stops evil scripts)
Stop Autoplay


15) If you do all of the above, you will get very few viruses.
