AOL Home Page

In the past when I logged on I got to the Rogers Yahoo Home Page. Now when I log on I get to an AOL Home Page. Is this a new feature offered by Compaq because I never asked for this. Now I have to go to the Favourites options to get access to Yahoo. How do I get rid of this AOL Home Page.

Thanks.

Go to tools menu in the menu bar in internet explorer, then go to internet options. Set your home page as you like in the internet options box.

Alternatively locate internet options inside control panel, it will open same box.
Here is an example of how internet options windows looks like:

Acer starts has xp home. goes to log in page, pointer feezes unable to do anything.


If it works normally in Safe Mode, that is the place to run antivirus checks in depth, and also use Malwarebytes AV. Do updates for these before running.
If this fails, come back here for more help

I like to have yahoo as my home page


Log on to the internet. Toward upper right side should be a word like Tools. Click there. Then go down to Internet Options and click there. The first thing you'll see is home page. Highlight and delete that address and then type in www.yahoo.com. At the bottom of screen click Apply. Close your browser, then reopen it and it should go to Yahoo.

Malls I am unable to log in my netflix account


Netflix offers users the ability to rent movies and TV shows through the mail on DVD or Bluray and also allows users to watch select shows or movies online using a computer or certain other devices. Occasionally users encounter errors when attempting to log in to their Netflix accounts. These errors can be as simple as an incorrectly typed password to more complex issues with the Netflix service itself.

Credential Problems b> Many login problems are caused by an incorrect email address or password when attempting to log in. This can be due to typos or other misspellings, or recent password changes that were forgotten. Netflix offers the ability to recover passwords and usernames via the "Need Help Signing In?" link below the login fields on the Netflix home page. Clicking the link allows the user to recover her password by entering her email address, and also gives the option to advance to a second recovery screen if she does not have access to that email address anymore. The second screen allows the user to prove her identity by entering the first name, last name and credit card number associated with the Netflix account. Service Errors b> Login problems occasionally occur due to errors with the Netflix service itself. When these problems occur, a message appears that explains a site error has occurred, directing the user back to the Netflix home page. The user should attempt logging in again in case of a one-time error, though site-wide service errors do occasionally occur. Depending on the nature of the error, once logged in the user may experience problems when trying to watch movies instantly or attempting to edit his DVD queue. Site-wide service errors do not affect the ability of Netflix to send and receive movies by mail. Account Problems b> If a problem exists with a user's Netflix account due to a failed payment attempt, the user can still log in but is directed to a page informing him of the problem instead of his standard account home page. Until the problem is resolved, he will be unable to watch movies instantly, receive DVD or Blu-ray discs from the service and will be required to return any movies currently at his home to avoid additional fees. Account problems can typically be resolved by authorizing Netflix to retry the last payment attempt on the user's credit card or by supplying a new credit card number for payment purposes. Device Connection Errors b> When attempting to watch movies or TV shows on Netflix-ready devices such as a Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 or Roku streaming media player connection errors sometimes occur while the device attempts to log in to the user's Netflix account. These errors may occur because the Internet connection the devices use is not properly configured, limited bandwidth to and from the user's home or problems with the device-specific version of the Netflix service. If the device cannot connect and log in to Netflix, the user should check the device's Internet connection and try connecting again later.

Try these steps: Update Adobe Flash Player Internet Explorer and Java script . Clear Explorer cache, cookies, and browsing history. Some find that a return to classic mail improves things. You could also try an alternative browser. Hope this helps!!
Some additional troubleshooting information and steps include:
  • The current problem is with Yahoo. Do not reinstall software on your computer
  • Sign out of Yahoo. Clear your cookies. Sign back into Yahoo.
  • Try logging in from Y! Login
  • Try logging in from Yahoo! Answers - Home
  • Force a browser refresh on the Yahoo mail page. While holding down the control key hit F5.
  • If you can not reply, try starting a new email to your contact.
  • Refresh the Yahoo Mail page before you try to compose a new email.
  • If you use Yahoo or another Yahoo compatible IM messenger, use the check mail link from that software to login to your email.

In the past, when I logged on I went straight to the Yahoo Home Page. Now when I log on I get an AOL screen and I have to get to Yahoo using the Favourites option. I never asked to be involved in AOL. ...


Hi,
If you are using windows Outlook express, Internet surf to the page you want to have as your home page. Click on the menu

-tools
-Internet options
-general

At the very top of this window you should be able to choose your home page.

My Windows xp version offers me the option to just

"click here to use current as home page". Then:

-apply
-okay

Your version may be different.

If you are not an outlook user or don't understand any of this please just post as much info as you can about what you know about your computor and I'll get back to you.
