Go ahead and re-install Firefox. I had the same issue last week and that cured it. I did not uninstall it first, just let it reload so I did not loose any information.

MSIE and Firefox won't open ... how do I download updated versions, or another browser, without a browser to work with?

I recently had a Firefox problem. It disappeared! Fortunately the very old version of IE I have still worked but every time I downloaded Firefox it disappeared again within a few minutes.

I tried Opera and Safari downloads but although they seemed to download ok they remained stubbornly frozen.
I tried one of those operating systems never heard of before with similar results - slightly more successful in that it worked albeit at a snail's pace.

Over the next few hours I downloaded and used every clean-up programme suggested on the Firefox website, used spybot and scanned with Zonealarm to no effect whatsoever.

I was forced to continue with the old IE intending to format the drive and reload everything but never getting around to it. A couple of weeks later out of interest I downloaded Firefox again with great success.
I have been convinced for a few years XP tends to heal itself over time and many starts and restarts...

Clearly my computer was attacked by something unpleasant and probably yours was too. Format the drive and reload everything is the best plan.

To get over your immediate problem try downloading a few browsers on a friend's computer and burning them to disc or memory stick and load onto your computer in the old-fashioned way.

Good luck!

My Facebook account will not let me logout?so i can close the screen

If you are on your laptop or home computer you can always close out and not really worry about it. But if you are on a shared computer or just don't want people on your Facebook account then there are a couple of things you can try. 1. Check to be sure you have internet. -You can't log out of the website if you aren't connected to the internet. 2. Hit reload in your browser. -Sometimes web browsers fail and need to be restarted. I know that Google Chrome tells you when you are having a problem like that and gives you the option to kill the page or wait. 3. If all else fails, turn it off and then back on. -This is the golden rule of electronics. When stuff starts to go wrong, restart it. Then you can go back to Facebook and see if you are still logged in, and if you can log out then.

Trying to play my games on facebook, but just recently started to get message that says i need to upgrade adobe flash player-will not load. I've actually did a system retore. Before that, I removed...


I recommend that you shutdown your computer(full shutdown not a restart). Once that is done, go ahead and update your browser to the newest version. Not sure what you have, so here are the top 3.




Once that is done, visit the Adobe Flash link to update your flash player:

I hope this helps

Need to reload my drivers


To reload your drivers you will have to reload the entire operating system and here is how to do so.

Back up all of your user files, because reloading the operating system will destroy all of your data. You can use an external hard drive, thumb drive or an online backup service to save your files.

Insert the restore CD that came with your computer, then restart your PC. The computer will automatically boot and begin the restoration. You will be asked to confirm the reformatting of your hard drive during the process. The restore CD will not only reload the operating system but all of the hardware drivers as well. (If you do not have the restore CD, contact your computer's manufacturer.)

Insert the operating system CD if you do not have access to a restore CD. Shut down the computer and restart it. The computer will boot from the CD, and when the operating system menu is displayed, you will have the option to reload the operating system files. If you take this approach, you might also need to reload the drivers for your hardware by going to each manufacturer's website and downloading a driver for each device.

When I go onto Facebook, just as I click on something, Internet Explorer kicks me out. It tries to reload 2 or 3 times then my computer freezes up.

I downloaded Firefox and it works fine now. Even after reloading internet explorer, I could never make it work.

I'm trying to reload my computer with the disks that came with it but it only goes to 33% and stops and gives me error 256 then restarts

sounds like a failed hard drive. if you experienced issues with your existing hard drive to warrant you to reload your machine, there is a good chance your hard drive has gone corrupt. thus causing it to freeze when it gets to a certain spot on the hard disk while reloading. this has happened to me on many machines with bad hard drives. i suggest replacing the hard drive

Cannot reload firmware

I had the Exact same problem and no one had a good solution, i only found one that finally worked after spending 4 freakin hours tryin to fix it. anyway here is the solution.

you need to use a computer that has Windows XP, then if the computer is running any version of Windows media player other than 10, roll back or upgrade to Media player 10. restart the computer.

Now, you need to download and run honestly i have no idea what it does. my guess is it reinstalles the USB ports but thats only a guess. but i was so frusterated by the time i found this solution that i was willing to try anything. so download this file, unpack it and run it. then it will ask you to restart. when your computer is restarted run the new firmware file ( i used and it works.

Why? i have no idea, but it i was pumped. the origional site i got this solution from is
