It is possible you still have a virus on your computer preventing Internet Explorer and Chrome. I recommend making sure your virus scanner is updated, and doing a complete scan of your hard drive.

In addition, it is possible that a virus on your computer has changed your proxy settings (which could explain why Firefox works while IE and Chrome do not). To verify that there are no proxy settings on Internet Explorer, open the application. Assuming you are using IE8 (other versions should be similar), go to Tools, and Internet Options. You can configure your proxy settings from the Connections tab, and clicking "Settings" for any applicable connections.

If you are using a direct connection to the internet (i.e., Cable or through a router), Never dial a connection should be selected. If this area is grayed out and there are no connections, this is not likely the problem.

Finally, make sure you are not working offline. Click tools once again, and make sure Work Offline does not have a check mark by it. This may be under the File menu on different versions of Internet Explorer.

I have windows 8 1 on a to tobisha laptop. Internet Explorer got deleted on accident. Google Chrome took its place. my school learning page MSSC training.com does not support Google Chrome how in the hell...


That happened because to didn't remove the tick for Chrome. Nothing to do with FireFox, which is the safest browser.
IE is still on your computer because that is what Windows uses to navigate your pages.
Go to programmes, click on Internet Explorer and it will ask if you want it as default, click Yes and everything is as it was before your mistake.

I can't get onto Google, or anything else


1. You don't have internet connection. Or it has disabled.
2. The browser doesn't work. Try with IE if already using another (firefox), or download others: Chrome, Opera...
3. If previous two options don't work, there is a possibility of having some malware/virus on your computer so a full antivirus scan is needed

I have internet explorer now can't load it crashes


How long has it been crashing? Sounds like you might have a virus. If you can't download another browser i.e. Firefox, Chrome, then try system restore to the time before it started crashing. If this doesn't work then download Firefox onto a thumb drive from another computer then install it. You can install the latest internet explorer from microsoft with the link below. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/products/ie/home
I would Download Malwarebytes antimalware to see if you have a virus.

Partical incompatability-messed up whole computer-freezes,internet messed up-wont let me delete program out-message keeps appearing!!!


I, myself have had nothing but problems when I downloaded Internet Explorer 9! I got rid of it. The best way to get rid of IE 9 once you have downloaded it is to go to Windows Update, click " view update history", click "Installed Updates" and once they all appear, find Windows Internet Explorer 9 ( Under Microsoft Windows, which is below Microsoft Visual C & Microsoft Silver-light 1, among others ) and uninstall it! It is quite very simple and IS the only way to get back to IE 8 ( If that is what you had previously, otherwise it will default to IE 7. BTW, very easy to re-install IE 8! ). For some reason, once you start using Google Chrome browser, it is best to simply avoid Internet Explorer! I use Google Chrome & love it! I also use Mozilla Firefox! Sometimes we must use Windows IE since it is the browser which came with the computer. But I would avoid IE 9 and just not download it again once you are rid of it! No matter how much Windows/Microsoft tells you that you need to download it! Hope you have your computer running efficiently again! arjay8tch (Richard Holt)

My facebook page will not come up. What do I do?


Hi, If the page is not coming up, you can try to reset the IE settings to default settings or using another type of browser like Firefox or Google chrome. To reset the setting on Internet Explorer: - click on tools on the upper right - click on internet options - click on advanced tab - click on reset button For Google Chrome: - just delete the following folders - For Windows XPC:\\Documents and Settings\\UserName\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Google\\Chrome\\Application
For Windows Vista or later
C:\\Users\\UserName\\AppData\\Local\\Google\\Chrome\\Application For Firefox: you can try to use Firefox in Safemode - a box will appear to ask you what you need to do with Firefox. - then you will asked to restart Firefox again.
Now all the browsers are restored to default, you can now try to log on to Facebook again.
Thank you for using Fixya,

Cant get on the internet when i click on google chrome icon I get "web page not avaiable"


Try using other browsers like IE or Mozilla Firefox and check if you can browse the Internet. If yes, uninstall and reinstall Google Chrome. If you can't access Internet via IE and Mozilla Firefox as well, chances are you don't have Internet connection. Contact your ISP if that's the case.

IE8 freezes all the time for a few seconds


Try another browser like firefox 3.5 or google chrome. I recommend google chrome because it is really fast and has a nice user interface. If you really want to stay with IE, you can downgrade back to IE7, by going into windows update and deleting the update for IE8. I hope this helps!
