I want to delete a program in my control panel. It won't let me. It says "close all web browsers". How do I do that?????? Wayne

If all your internet windows appear closed, but the uninstall program is still complaining that they are open, you may have to kill the process. Press ctrl + alt + del. Select processes tab. scroll down the list and highlight and press end task on all that say iexplore.exe, firefox, chrome (if you use).

Can't bring up internet explorer

It happens when you have multiple sessions of IE running on your computer.

Lauch Task manager by hitting Alt+Ctrl+Del.
Go to Processes tab.
If you see Iexplore.exe select it and click on End Process Tab.

My back ground is black and in bottom right corner it says did not pass windows validation may be a victim of software conterfiting

It's a long shot but try this:

1) Restart your PC
2) Logon and wait for the black screen to appear
3) Make sure your PC should be able to connect to the internet (black screen does not appear to affect this)
4) Press the CTRL, ALT and DEL keys simultaneously
5) When prompted, Click Start Task Manager
6) In Task Manager Click on the Application Tab
7) Next Click New Task
8) Now enter the command:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" ""
Note this command assumes that you are using internet explorer as your browser, if not substitute your browser path and file details for those of iexplore.exe or use the Browser option of Task manager to locate it.
9) Click OK and your browser should start up and begin the download process
10) When prompted for the download Click run, the black screen fix program will download and run to automatically fix the issue.
11) Now restart your PC and the black screen problem will hopefully be gone.

Good luck

Installing CS3 products

If it still does not work, before running the Installer, press Control + Alt + Delete (delete, not backspace) and then click on Task Manager.
Once in Task Manager, select the "Processes" tab, look up iexplore.exe (NOT explorer.exe), right-click it, then select kill/delete.
Run installer again.

iexplore.exe should not be disabled, required for essential applications to work properly.
see also if it's the real one or just a virus masquerading as that file.

Problem getting netzero download to download computer says need to close i need to close explorer browser sites but none are open

Please note that I am using Windows XP so Vista may be slightly different but mostly similar.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and open the "Task Manager". Click "Processes" tab and check the box next to "Show processes from all users". Look for the file name of the web browser you are using and here are two common web browsers.

Microsoft Internet Explorer - iexplorer.exe (If you close explorer.exe by mistake, Windows XP users can go to "Applications", "New Task", and type in "C:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe" or Vista users can simply log out and log in through the task manager.)
Mozilla Firefox - firefox.exe

If you use a different web browser, right click the shortcut for your web browser and click "Properties". The file name will be after the last slash ( \ ) in the target box. File names usually end with ".exe".

Click the file name when you find it and click "End Process" but before you do, you are most likely viewing this with a web browser so this window (and all other windows for your web browser) will close as soon you end the proccess. This means make sure you finish what you are doing and be ready for it to close.
