Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K23 Notebook

1 Answer

Updated Firefox and now cannot connect to the internet.

I generally use Firefox. I just installed a Firefox update and I can no longer access the internet using my Firebox browser. This has happened once before and my firewall was blocking access but I can't figure out how to fix itthis time and my Norton is giving me problems.

    i recently had a pc tune up from the geek squad. when i logged on at home, i had no access to the internet.

    it also appears to be problem with going around a firewall and also related to the norton 360 software that i installed last year. i do not have access to my norton 360. it does not open when i click on it.

    i own a 7100 U series Averatec notebook.

Why does my firefoz crash?

Try checking any extensions you may have installed. You may want to disable them one at a time to help narrow down the one that may be causing the issue.

Also make sure Firefox is updated to the latest version and that your flash player is also updated.

I think I would download a fresh updated copy of Firefox. Use "Revo Uninstaller" to remove all old files from your HDD and the registry. Now install the new copy of Firefox. The PC should now connect ok.

Updated to AVG9. Use firefox browser. Now can't access Yahoo e-ma

Good browser, good antivirus; Yahoo is kind of disgusting the way it dumps ads out all over, and AVG probably puts things in the way of those ads some day carrying malware in Firefox.  Since IE has a different callback API, it has to work from greater distance in that case.

I recommend using a POP3 proxy service or application to access Yahoo e-mail unless you love Yahoo's interface.  In the latter case, enter a trouble ticket at AVG's site and/or forum site, and a love letter to Yahoo Mail developers, and try IE and Chrome for now.

When i try to log in it says "internet explorer not available"


If you are using IE - Clear the cache and cookies. Make sure you have the updated Version. Even if you are using Firefox or Safari, you need to have the updated Version. Clear the History, logs and cache from the browser.

If you do not know, how to clear it, let me know. You need to tell me the browser and the Version. You can swap the browser. If you are not using Firefox, Download Firefox and install and use it. Check if that could fix the issue.

Make sure you need to Turn off the Firewall for few minutes till you check this and also make sure, you have a Valid Internet Connection :).

Let me know the update.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
