Question about Dell Dimension 4400 PC Desktop

2 Answers

I keep getting numerous iexplore.exe activity in the task manager. What can be done to close these out or stop them from staying open when closing down IE8. I am running ATT Yahoo on a Dell 4400. This seems to demand significant CPU and slowing down my computer. They do clear out when I reboot, but this is time consuming.

I want to delete a program in my control panel. It won't let me. It says "close all web browsers". How do I do that?????? Wayne


Hello,
If all your internet windows appear closed, but the uninstall program is still complaining that they are open, you may have to kill the process. Press ctrl + alt + del. Select processes tab. scroll down the list and highlight and press end task on all that say iexplore.exe, firefox, chrome (if you use).

I keep receiving the error message that Adobe Updater is running and should be closed. I ran a search and I can't find Adobe Updater on my PC.


Hi. Just press Ctrl-Alt-Del, select Task Manager Button to open the Windows Task Manager. Go to the Processes tab, look for these image names and terminate (end process) them:
adobeupdater.exe or Adobe_Updater.exe
Close the Windows Task Manager and you're done.
Hope this helps.

My cat walked on my keyboard and now I can't stop the voice. Everything I type gets spoken out loud


Hi,
Looks like your cat has activated the windows narrator feature on your PC.

To turn it off, click on Start, then click on all programs, then click Accessories,then open Accessiblity, then open Narrator. It will be shown as running, click on stop and close the window.

Also, you can turn it off from the Task Manager. To open task manager, right -click on the taskbar, select Task Manager, under Processes Tab you will find utilman.exe. Right-click on utilman.exe, then select End Process, select Yes from the next announcement window, then close the Task Manager.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks.

"Internet Explorer has has stopped working..."


After installing IE8 on vista I kept getting msg Internet Explorer has stopped working - continually looping thru this message.

Solution for me was.
End IE with task manager - needed to do a couple of times.
Then from control panel -> programs -> manage addons I disabled all add ons and then IE started OK. Then by process of elimination stated enabling add on until failed again.

In my case it was the skype addon that was causing IE to fail. Leaving it disabled has allowed IE8 to function.

Problem getting netzero download to download computer says need to close i need to close explorer browser sites but none are open


Please note that I am using Windows XP so Vista may be slightly different but mostly similar.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and open the "Task Manager". Click "Processes" tab and check the box next to "Show processes from all users". Look for the file name of the web browser you are using and here are two common web browsers.

Microsoft Internet Explorer - iexplorer.exe (If you close explorer.exe by mistake, Windows XP users can go to "Applications", "New Task", and type in "C:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe" or Vista users can simply log out and log in through the task manager.)
Mozilla Firefox - firefox.exe

If you use a different web browser, right click the shortcut for your web browser and click "Properties". The file name will be after the last slash ( \ ) in the target box. File names usually end with ".exe".

Click the file name when you find it and click "End Process" but before you do, you are most likely viewing this with a web browser so this window (and all other windows for your web browser) will close as soon you end the proccess. This means make sure you finish what you are doing and be ready for it to close.
