Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I almost always get a blank screen that covers my desktop and makes me find alternate ways of accessing sites and browsers. When I leave a website, it remains and I'm forced, again, to find alternate access means. I think it has to do with Internet Explorer as I added a color to its interface and that color is shown on the blank screen. IE is not my default browser. In order to get onto the web, or into my files, I must press 'control' and 'esc' at the same time and enable my installed icons and start globe at the bottom of my laptop.

Using windows Explorer,show all files and hidden files under folder options. Go to windows folder and un-install the version of MSIE you have all the way back to Version 6 ,the best with fewest issues.Make it your default also.

How do I disable web guard on imac computer


Depends on the browser you're using. Check your preferences in Safari & make sure 'enable plugins' is checked. If you have any extensions downloaded the make sure it doesn't block access to the sites you're referencing. You can also try firefox as an alternative browser. Good to have an alternative just in case.

Browser Related Problems
  • Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)
  • Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page.
Fix DNS Problems
  • A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.
  • Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter).
  • If you can access a website at office or from a mobile network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services. You can always use 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4.

I am not able to access my facebook from my computer. I can access other websites. I can also access facebook from other computers. pl give me a solution


What browser you are using?
Other browsers won't load facebook especially if there are plugins that are missing or needed to be installed. Other computers may already have installed or updated all plugins. For example: Flash player plugins, Java plugins, etc..Mostly these plugins are always needed and should be updated.

You can also download and install one of these browsers:
1. Moziila Firefox - Click to DOWNLOAD .
When prompted Save the .exe file on your desktop. When download's complete, double click the .exe file to begin installation. When installation is complete, double click <Mozilla Firefox> located on your desktop. Start browsing facebook now.

2. Google Chrome - Click to DOWNLOAD.
Just click <Agree and Install>.

Blank screen


This sounds like corrupted Windows and will require a software reload, however you might try this to make things easier in the mean time... (written for XP)
Right click in the taskbar (usually at the bottom of the screen). If 'Lock the Taskbar' is checked, click it to uncheck. Next, click 'toolbars' and 'Desktop'. This should put a new toolbar in your taskbar called Desktop. You should be able to push this all the way to the right. Now when you want to access the desktop Icons, they will be available at the double arrows on the right of the word Desktop. I keep mine this way all the time so I can access stuff on the desktop even when it is covered with open windows.

How do i unblock social websites like facebook and


Try alternative browser such as Mozilla Firefox and Opera

The easiest way to try if it’s possible bypass blocking of MySpace is to use an alternative web browser such as Mozilla Firefox and Opera. This hack will work if system administrators apply the contents URL filtering and blocking via Internet Explorer settings of Group Policy, which works only on Internet Explorer browsers. Thus, Firefox and Opera are not affected by the restrictions that applied via Group Policy and the access to MySpace or other blocked sites are granted. ( If this solution helpful to you please rate this)

404 problem


As the name mentions, error code 404 means that the
1. address that you are trying to access does not exist. First u need to make sure that you are typing the correct URL in the address bar of the Internet Explorer (or any other browser). If you are sure that the url you have typed is correct, then you can check it from any other location (a cybercafe, friend's pc etc.).
2. It may also happen that the site you are trying to access may currently be on maintenance so , the web page will usually not be accessible.
3. If you are accessing the URL from bookmarks, it may not load properly as pages that require user login will expire after some time.
4.You could also try an alternate web browser (Internet explorer 9,mozilla firefox,opera,chrome etc).
Now, try to open the big fish games website from here.

(As Internet Explorer 7 has known issues regarding opening some websites, i suggest you to switch to a different browser)

all the best.
