Sounds like you have Norton Internet Security running or maybe some fancy firewall such as Zone Alarm.
Go into the management console of your anti virus and see if you can find the internet protector side of it and turn it off (there might be a 'pause' option) to check. If everything works there might be a security level setting you can just lower a bit to still give you the protection.
If you have a fancy firewall it's very dependant - Windows already has one and if you use a router for t'internet there should be one on that. Third party firewalls on the pc tend to just give problems browsing unless you really go to town configuring them. I'd ditch it myself but that's just me..
If it's neither of these go into Internet Explorer and in Tools-Options on the Advanced tab click the 'reset Internet Explorer settings' button.
Good luck

I logged into facebook and it will not let me chat because it says that i have to upgrade my browser to internet explorer 9 how do i dothat


You can download the latest Internet Explorer from Microsoft's website.(http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home)

You can only upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 unless you have Windows 7 as your operating system.
Personally, I would suggest using a different browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Both of these browsers are more secure and faster than Internet Explorer and should allow you to chat on Facebook. Here are the respective links:
Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/
Chrome: http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/landing_chrome.html?hl=en
I hope this helps!

I cant open my facebook account


First, verify that the user name and password that you are using is correct. Ttry to log in to your Facebook account using different computer that's connected into different network. If the same problem occur, try to access your email that is associated with Facebook.

However, if you're not able to experience the same problem on different computer, then the problem could be your internet browser. Try to optimize your internet browser or try different browser.

Here's how to optimize the browser:

* For Internet Explorer:

1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
5. Access your e-mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox:

1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
5. Click "Clear Now" button.
6. Close and re-open Firefox.
7. Access your e-mail.

* For Safari:

1. Open the Safari.
2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
7. Select "Done".
8. Access your email.

Thank you and good luck!

Attempted illegal access to my account.


Dear Friend, Do following to PROTECT yourself...............
  • Change your password often, once a week and dont make it easy such as using your birthdate etc
  • Make sure you dont go to any link from email, they can be mask. Make sure you see the URL from your internet bar is from https://www.paypal.com
  • Key loggers are everywhere these day, make sure you have all updated ANTI VIRUS, spywares.
  • Have a personal firewall, which control information coming in and out of your machine through the internet.
  • Paypal would never email you to ask for password or any personal information. When you get email from Paypal, make sure you check the email header, to see it is really comes from them.
  • To log in to your PayPal account or access the PayPal website, open a new web browser (e.g.,Internet Explorer 7 or Netscape) and type in the following: https://www.paypal.com
  • Emails from PayPal will address you by your first and last name or the business name associated with your PayPal account. Fraudulent emails often include the salutation "Dear PayPal User" or "Dear PayPal Member".
  • PayPal emails will never ask you to download an attachment or a software program. Attachments contained in fraudulent emails often contain viruses that may harm your computer or compromise your PayPal account.
  • Often, fraudulent emails will request details such as your full name, account password, credit card number, bank account, PIN number, Social Security Number, or mother's maiden name.
  • If you think that you have received a fraudulent email (or fake website), please forward the email (or URL address) to spoof@paypal.com and then delete the email from your mailbox. Never click any links or attachments in a suspicious email.

Yahoo email will not open after I did file recovery on computer.


It is a good idea to let Windows Update fetch all the patches and security fixes for your system, as many are specifically for Internet Explorer.

After you are sure your system is up to date, open your Internet Explorer browser:

1) Click "Tools" > Select "Internet Options"

2) Click the "Security" Tab

3) Highlight "Internet" as the zone to change

4) Click "Custom level..."

5) Scroll down the options:

Under "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" select "Enable"

Under "Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting" select "Enable"

6) Click <OK> to close this window, then <OK> again to close the Internet Options dialog box.

7) Close your Internet Explorer browser

8) Reboot your computer

Try your Yahoo! Mail again. I hope this helps!

Can't access log in pages for gmail and yahoo


Maybe you can work around this problem by using Windows Live Mail, it lets you access all of your email addresses on one page, Also when you set it up, you just have to enter the email address and it automatically sets up the rest, works pretty good.
Not sure about the website thing though.
