Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer freezes up after loading personal settings . C.annot find start up module pops up. Acrobat reader pops up with folders on screen. If all these pop up and I close them then loading continues and then I can prompt Internet Explorer. Home page does not open so I open task manager and prompt new task. Sometimes it opens new page selected and sometimes not . If it does open then it either continues to work or freezes up when an icon on a page is prompted. Virus or screwed up Internet Explorer by Comcast or what?

It seems the acrobat application is creating these problems. Please use the system configuration utility to remove this application from startup.

Click on Start >Run (If you have Windows 7 then type msconfig in search)and then type msconfig. In the msconfig window, under the startup tab, look for any entry which says Adobe and uncheck it. Click on Apply and OK and restart the system. This should do the trick.

How do i disable pop-ups on you tube?


Some YouTube videos have annotations that pop up on the video during playback. The annotations often provide information about the subject of the video, or links to other websites. Though some of the annotations are useful, many are obtrusive and add no value. You can disable the pop-over annotations while watching a single video or so that they don't appear on any of the videos you watch.

Disable Annotations in a Single Video Navigate to the video you want to watch. It will start playing automatically once it loads. Locate the Annotations icon in the bottom right corner of the video player. The Annotations icon is red and shaped like a comic-strip word balloon. Click the Annotations icon to turn off the pop-over annotations. The icon will change color to gray. Disabling Annotations on All Videos Sign into your YouTube account or create a new account by clicking "Create Account," filling out the information and following the onscreen instructions. Click the arrow to the right of your user name in the top right corner of the website, and select "Settings." The "Account Settings" screen will appear. Select "Playback Setup" in the menu on the left side of the screen. Click the check box next to "Show Annotations" to remove the checkmark, and then click "Save Changes."

I keep getting messages ..could not find acrobat External windows handler; . brand is e machines ..error messages,,


Hi Kate1958. I found this for you. Do one or more of the following solutions:
Solution 1: Remove all versions of Acrobat or Reader, and then reinstall one version.
If multiple versions of Acrobat or Reader are installed on the system, remove all versions and then install only one version. See the documentation included with Windows for information about removing programs.
Note: If you need to have multiple versions of an Acrobat product installed, remove all versions and then reinstall them starting with the earliest, installing the latest version last.
Solution 2: Start Acrobat or Reader, and then open the PDF file in the web browser.
If an error occurs when you try to start Acrobat or Reader, refer to Related Documents below, or search the Adobe Support Knowledgebase:
-- If you use Acrobat, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrobat.html .
-- If you use Reader, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrreader.html .
Solution 3: Make sure that the External Window Handler file (ewh32.api) is in the Plug-ins folder.
If this file is missing, reinstall Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
The default location of the Plug-ins folder is:
-- For Acrobat: Program FilesAdobeAcrobat [version]Acrobat
-- For Reader: Program FilesAdobeAcrobat [version]Reader
Solution 4: Disable Web Browser Integration.
Disable Web Browser Integration so that PDF files open directly in Acrobat or Reader instead of in the web browser.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 6.0.x -7.0.x or Reader 6.0.x -7.0.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Reader.
2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Internet.
3. Deselect Display PDF in Browser.
4. Click OK.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 5.x or Acrobat Reader 5.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.
2. Choose Edit > Preferences > General.
3. Click Options in the list in the Preferences dialog box.
4. Deselect Display PDF in Browser.
5. Click OK.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 4.x or Acrobat Reader 4.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.
2. Choose File > Preferences > General.
3. Deselect Web Browser Integration in the General Preferences dialog box.
4. Click OK.

I can download adobe reader but when trying to use or open,it says internal error


Hi Ferguson,

You will find the solution in the following link:

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/404/kb404082.html

If that isn't correct, then you need to dump all of the Adobe Reader and Acrobat folders from

HD\Library\Application Support\Adobe
HD\Library\Preferences
Home\Library\Preferences


Also dump:
  • com.adobe.acrobat.pdfviewer.plist,
  • com.adobe.PDFAdminSettings.plist,
  • com.adobe.Reader_x86_9.0.plist,
  • com.adobe.Reader.plist, and
  • com.adobe.acrobat.90.sh.plist

wherever you find them in the HD\Library\Preferences or User\Library\Preferences folders.

Once you've done that, empty the trash, and install Reader 9.3.1.

Beleive me it will work, have a great day :)

Uninstall Abode Reader 9.1 before?


I assume you are having issues with Adobe Reader and want to start over. Yes, uninstall the program first and then reinstall.

  1. Exit from all applications.
  2. Uninstall Acrobat.
  3. Search for and delete any .tmp files on your computer.
    1. Delete the following items, if present, from the Documents and Settings/[user profile]/Local Settings/Temp folder:
    2. Folders:
      • _istmp[x].dir
    • Files:
      • _ins[x]._mp
      • _inst32i.ex_
      • _inz[x]._mp
      • _isdel.exe
      • _istmp[x].dir
      • _setup.dll
      • _setup.lib
      • _wutl[x].dll
      • ~ins[x].~mp
        where "[x]" is any number
  • Then reinstall the new Reader program.

    I am unable to open Micrografx Windows Draw 6. I used it for clip art but now it won't open.


    Hello, I had the same problem. windows draw has been working for years under Windows XP then suddenly impossible. I think there is a conflict with others programs i installed.
    I found THE solution after reading many topics on the net :
    Install acrobat reader 4 on your system. Then run acrobat reader 4. Last, run Micrografx windows draw 6 while acrobat reader 4 is running on your system too.
    Maybe it works with a more recent version of acrobat reader but i didn't try. Maybe this solution works also with windows draw 5 but i didn't try.
    Enjoy
