For two days now, My work computer connected to the server is taking so long to browse the internet. I never had a problem before. Even just typing this and going Fixya.com is taking too long. Did I get a virus that slow down my computer?

Hello,

this could be as a result of virus or windows update. Since it was working properly two days ago, you can restore the system back to two days when it was working.

To achieve this, simply restore your computer. Go to your computer 'Start Menu", go to "All programs", go to 'Accessories", go to "System tools", and go to "System restore. You will see an option where you will be asked to restore your system back to three to four days back. You can also enter back date that you want the system to be restore to.

If the problem is not solved after doing the system restore, you will have to scan your system for virus.

But, the system restore should resolve this problem.

I wish you good luck.

Browse websites faster


Here are no-cost ways to fine-tune DNS for faster browsing.

There's a simple way you can get to Web sites faster, and it won't cost you a penny. You can change the way your PC uses the Domain Name System (DNS), the technology underlying all Web browsing.

Before you start, it's a good idea to get a basic understanding of how DNS works. When you type in a URL such as www.example.com, that URL needs to be translated into a numeric IP address that Web servers and Internet routers can understand. When you type in a URL, a DNS server does the translation, from www.example.com to 208.77.188.166, for example.

An often used analogy to explain the Domain Name System is that it serves as the "phone book" for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses. For example, www.example.com translates to 208.77.188.166.

DNS servers live on the Internet, and your computer contacts them with the request to do that translation, which is commonly called name resolution. When you use an ISP, your computer will automatically use the default DNS servers specified by your ISP; you typically don't need to set up DNS in any way. If you're on a corporate network, your systems administrator may have set you up to use specific DNS servers.

If there's a delay in contacting the DNS server, or if the DNS server takes too much time resolving the address, you'll face a delay in getting to a Web site. So even if you've got the world's fattest pipe, your Web surfing will be slowed down.

If you could speed up the name resolution in some way, you'd be able to speed up your Web surfing. And that's exactly what I'll show you how to do.

Why do i continue to lose my connection to the server when playing a game?



LAN Connection Issues and Port Settings LAN-based matches between players on your internal home network are not routed through the Internet or Battle.net servers. Disconnections from LAN matches are attributed to faulty internal wiring or router settings. Log in to your router's administration page via a Web browser and ensure ports 6112 through 6119 TCP are open for traffic flow. If this does not work, check your network wiring and ensure it's properly seated in the computer's and router's Ethernet ports. Corrupt Server List and Virus Attack If you have recently downloaded any maps or connected to privately hosted servers, it's possible you picked up a virus that altered your server file list and is directly causing connection issues. Scan your computer for viruses, using an updated virus definition database. b> Multiple IP Connections b> If you and a friend share a single license or key, disconnects occur if you attempt logging in while the other is playing or vice versa. Key sharing is against the Terms of Use and can lead to an IP ban or restriction. Ensure no one else has access to your CD key or tries to access the game while you are playing to avoid multiple IP disconnects. b> High Latency Disconnects Internet connections with latency over 500 ms can cause disconnects while playing in heavily populated online matches. Alleviate this issue by closing all connection-intensive programs running on your computer. Reconnect to the .net servers with only running on your computer. If you continue experiencing disconnects, visit Speedtest.net and determine whether your latency is above 500 ms. If so, contact your Internet provider for further troubleshooting. Internet crashing b> If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection. Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit. It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.

Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History." Hit "Delete All." Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons." Hit "OK." Close and reopen the browser. b> Disable Add-Ons b> Go to "Start > Search." Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter." The computer will search for any files with this label. Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)." This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash. b> Reset Internet Explorer b> Open the IE browser. Go to "Tools > Internet Options." Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter." Close and reopen the browser. Hope this helps. b>

How to configure Remote access/VPN server role (using windows as my operating system)?


You can configure a server that allows remote users to access resources on your private network over dial-up or virtual private network (VPN) connections. This type of server is called a remote access/VPN server. Remote access/VPN servers can also provide network address translation (NAT). With NAT, the computers on your private network can share a single connection to the Internet. You can find a step by step guide here:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736357(WS.10).aspx

Everytime I try logging into facebook it tells me that the page is temporarily unavailable and to try again later or that it might be a network problem, but all other websites are working fine. What can I...


Sometimes, facebook do maintenance for their servers and you'll experience that thing. But usually it doesn't take more than one day.

Is it a home pc where you're trying to logon into? Or is it an office computer? If it is an office computer, your network admin might blocked the website.

You can also try clearing your cache. For firefox, click tools, clear recent history and clear everything. For internet explorer, tools - internet options - delete - and delete everything. After this, try browsing facebook.

If it does not work, you can try other browser like google chrome which you can download for free at http://www.google.com/chrome

Or, you can try changing your DNS.
- Click start, right-click my network places then click properties
- Right click the local area connection you are using
- Double click internet protocol
- Change the preferred dns server to 8.8.8.8 and the alternate dns server to 8.8.4.4
- click ok, then ok
- try browsing

Good luck!

Internet explorer not working


Check whether your internet connection is working properly or not. To check this ping to your DNS Server of your internet service provider. If you get a reply from the DNS Server then the problem is with your browser, if so then install another browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. If you dont get a reply from DNS server contact your ISP and resolve the Issue with them.

I have had similar problems after trying to activate on my customers computers. I know it is Trend Micros servers that are down for maintenance. Wait a day or two and then try again and it will work. Your computer is protected during this time even though it is not activated.
