    You do not need to get a new internet provider. You just need to try another browser like Mozilla Firefox, etc.

    Go to then just click the green button (Download Firefox- Free) and it will give you installation steps that you can easily follow.

    Hope this helps you isolate the problem.

I need to download Lowe's Virtual Room Designer, and to complete the process, they told me to restart my browser. How do I restart my browser? Confused.

Okay... you probably know what restarting your computer means.. When they tell you to restart your browser, that simply means that you have to get out of the browser you are working in. In your case, it appears that you're using Safari. In my case, for example, it would be Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox. If you simply close down and get out of ALL of your active windows, and then reopen Safari or whatever you're working on, that should do it. If things don't seem to work how they're supposed to, you can always just restart the whole computer. That way, you KNOW you've restarted your browser.

Keeps shutting down my search engines

Whereas Internet Explorer is a very popular browser, you may have problems with it from time to time. Internet Explorer has been known to either randomly shut down or close pages.
This can be extremely irritating, especially if you are in the middle of a project.
Use these tips to fix Internet Explorer if it keeps closing Web pages.

Start by deleting your browsing history.
Open Internet Explorer and click the "Safety" tab found in the top right corner of the Web browser.
Then, choose the "Delete Browsing History" option.
A box will appear on the computer screen.
Make sure that there are checkmarks next to each option listed in the box.
Click the "Delete" tab to delete the browsing history.
Move to the next step if Internet Explorer keeps closing pages.
Download, install and then run both an anti-malware and an anti-virus software program. Spyware, adware, viruses and other similar infections can cause Internet Explorer to shut down or close pages.
Deleting your browsing history may not take care of these problems.
Spybot and AVG Anti-Virus are two very useful free programs that will search for and remove harmful infections from your computer.
You can download these two programs by using the links in the Resources section below.;mostPopTwoColWrap
Freeware detect and remove a multitude of adware files and modules.
Go to next step if you are still experiencing problems with Internet Explorer.

Try resetting the Internet Explorer settings.
Open Internet Explorer and then click "Tools."
Choose "Internet Options." Click the "Advanced" tab.
Then, click "Reset" found at the bottom of the box.
A second box will appear on the screen.
Click the "Delete personal settings" option and then click "Reset."
You will need to restart Internet Explorer to finish the process.
Go to the next step if Internet Explorer continues to close pages.
Run Windows Update. Open Internet Explorer and click the "Safety" tab in the top right corner of the Web browser.
Select the "Windows Update" option.
You will be taken to the Windows Update Web page.
Click the "Express" tab on that age.
Windows Update will then check for any updates.
Click the "Install Updates" tab to install any of the recommended updates.

My internet explorer 9 is always shutting down without apparent reason, especially when trying to share a video from youtube onto facebook

I would suggest for the meantime to move back to IE 8 as there are lots of issues with IE 9 as of today July 15, 2011. I wrote down information how to put it back to IE8.
1.Go to the Add or Remove Programs section of the Control Panel. In Windows 7 you will find this just below the address bar when you open my computer. 2. On the Add or Remove Programs make sure to show updates 3. When the list has been populated, scroll down until you find the Internet Explorer section 4. Remove/uninstall Internet Explorer 9 leaving the Internet Explorer 8 on the list 5. After completing the removal, reboot your computer You should now have Internet Explorer 8 active on your system.

Is your system running 64-bit or 32-bit? To find this out, press "start", right click on "computer", then click "properties". There it will specify your "system type" (64-bit or 32-bit). There is no Flash Player for 64-bit Web Browswers available yet. If your computer is running 64-bit, you should try using the 32-bit Internet Explorer (can be found in your list of programs in the start menu).

When I open Internet explorer or any web sites on IE they appear

The default behavior for IE is to open at the same size it was at the last time it was closed.
While the default does apply in many cases it's not always consistent.

Try the following workaround.
Open a single IE window to the smaller size.
Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen.
Do not use the maximize button to enlarge the window.
Hold down the Ctrl key, keep it depressed,
and using the mouse click File and then Exit on the menu bar.
Do not use the "X" in the upper right corner to close the window.
Internet Explorer should now open in a full window.
If it still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key.

The next time you open the browser. Maximise the Browser from the top right corner.

Then click on ALT key on your keyboard.

Now press and keep holding the CTRL key on your keyboard.

Now go to File option on the top left using your mouse on your browser and choose the option Exit.

Make sure when you exit from the browser the size of the browser should be maximum.

( Note:- you need to keep holding the CTRL key on your keyboard while you are clicking on the exit option..)

Now After you exit you can let go the CTRL key on your keyboard and then try to open the Same Browser again.

Tell me if it resolves your issue.

It should come in maximise size.

System shutdown message pop up and shut down and restart computer

Sounds like spyware / malware i would use an online scanner like Eset or a program like Malwarebytes.

also to stop the computer from restarting open the command prompt window (start menu, click run, type cmd, click ok...) type "shutdown.exe /a" without the "" and there is a space between exe and /a this will abort the shutdown.

Outlook Free/Busy error

Hope this solves it for you! Here's the official word from Microsoft:
If you receive one or more of these error messages, you may experience performance issues until Outlook finishes the reconciliation process for the .ost file or for the .pst file. The following gear icon is displayed in the status bar while Outlook checks the data file in the background: Collapse this imageExpand this imageol2007gearicon.jpg When this icon disappears, the .pst file or the .ost file is reconciled. If you exit Outlook while the gear icon is present, reconciliation must restart the next time that you run Outlook. We recommend that you leave Outlook running until the gear icon disappears before you exit Outlook.

An incorrectly shut down .ost file or .pst file may occur for one of the following reasons:
  • Antivirus scanning of the file
  • Forced Microsoft Windows shutdown before the Outlook.exe process shuts down completely
  • Outlook add-ins
If you see this issue frequently, and you have to exit Outlook shortly before you shut down your computer, it may be better to shut down Windows while Outlook is still running. We recommend that you do this instead of exiting Outlook and then shutting down Windows shortly after that.
