At least that proves all is good with the actual connection to the ISP. Have you got two icons on the desktop? Is your 'orange shortcut' the mozilla shortcut or is it for another browser..? Like IE? If the orange shortcut is for another browser or whatever.. highlight it with a left mouse click & right mouse select it & go to 'properties'. It should show (under shortcut) something like this:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"
This points to the actual executable that really runs the program. You could go down the directory structure & attempt to start the program directly from that executable. If it "points" to the wrong executable, then you need to modify the shortcut. You need to compare the two internet browser shortcuts & try to discover whats wrong. Both shortcuts should point to their respective exe files, to start the actual program.

I realise this is probably sounding complicated, so if you are not sure, then post any other questions here.. But as above, you do have access to the internet, so this is not a serious problem to solve. Let me know how you get on.. Rgds,

Where is browser


When you installed Firefox, it should have made a shortcut on your desktop, and an entry in your start menu. Look for the icon on your desktop, and if it's not there, then go to start, and click all programs, and then click mozilla firefox.

Facebook's shortcuts


<p><span>For the ones who might not know, Facebook has a couple of shortcuts that can make your life much easier when browsing the famous social networking site.</span><br /> <p><span><br /></span><br /> <p><span>It depends on what browser you are using. Of course there are several differences for Mac users. If you are using Mozilla you need to tap <b>Shift + ALT</b>, not just <b>ALT. </b>Furthermore if you are using Internet Explorer you need to press the <b>Enter </b>key also. </span><br /> <p><span><br /></span><br /> <p><span>If you are using a Mac, you have to press <b>CTRL+ OPT, </b>instead of <b>ALT</b>.</span><br /> <p><span>The first shortcut is to create a <b>NEW MESSAGE</b>: <b>ALT + M.</b></span><br /> <p><span>Unfortunately this shortcut does not work at all in Internet Explorer, but if you are using Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox you can use it without any doubts. The shortcut for Firefox is: <b>SHIFT+ALT+M</b>.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The second shortcut helps us to <b>SEARCH</b> something: <b>ALT + ?.</b></span><br /> <p><span>The shortcut is common on Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, but for Firefox users must tap: <b>SHIFT + ALT + ?. </b>It is a quite useful shortcut because you can easily search all your friends.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>Third one is a very used one when you want to reload the first page. You can either hit <b>CTRL + R </b>or<b> ALT + 1</b> to access the <b>MAIN PAGE.</b></span><br /> <p><span>If you are using Firefox use <b>SHIFT + ALT + 1. </b>For Internet Explorer users tap <b>ALT + 1, then ENTER.</b></span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The forth shortcut brings you closer to your <b>PROFILE</b>: <b>ALT + 2.</b></span><br /> <p><span>So if you want to have a quick view of your profile hit <b>SHIFT + ALT +2 </b>in Firefox and <b>ALT + 2, then ENTER</b> for Internet Explorer. </span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The sixth one is for managing your <b>FRIEND REQUESTS</b>: <b>ALT + 3.</b></span><br /> <p><span>The shortcut is intended for popular users, which receive several requests per day. If you're a popular user that uses Firefox hit: <b>SHIFT + ALT + 3. </b>If you feel you're more popular with Internet Explorer use: <b>ALT + 3, then ENTER.</b></span><br /> <p><b><span> </span></b><br /> <p><span>Eighth- <b>MESSAGES: ALT + 4.</b></span><br /> <p><span>The shortcut opens the Messages page. While Firefox users must hit: <b>SHIFT + ALT + 4</b>, Internet Explorer users must tap: <b>ALT + 4, then ENTER.</b></span><br /> <p><b><span> </span></b><br /> <p><span>Bored already? You shouldn't, because there much more to come. The ninth - <b>NOTIFICATIONS: ALT + 5.</b></span><br /> <p><span>With this shortcut you can see all your new notifications:<span> </span><b>SHIFT + ALT + 5, </b>for Firefox and <b>ALT + 5, then ENTER </b>for Internet Explorer.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The tenth shortcut brings you closer to your <b>ACCOUNT SETTINGS: ALT + 6.</b></span><br /> <p><span>You may want to change some things on your profile, or update your relationship status, for example. You need to have access to your account settings. You must use <b>SHIFT + ALT + 6 </b>if you're a Firefox user, or <b>ALT + 6, then ENTER </b>if you're using Internet Explorer.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The eleventh shortcut is related to a very important thing: <b>PRIVACY SETTINGS: ALT + 7.</b></span><br /> <p><span>Your privacy is important so you have to have a good control on it. To access it use: <b>SHIFT + ALT + 7 </b>within Firefox and <b>ALT + 7, then ENTER </b>within Internet Explorer.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The twelfth is not an important one, but still opens the <b>FACEBOOK </b>page: <b>ALT + 8.</b></span><br /> <p><span>It is really not an important one. I do not think it is important to see Facebook's profile page. Firefox users ought to use: <span> </span><b>SHIFT + ALT + 8, </b>while Internet Explorer users ought to use: <b>ALT + 8, then ENTER.</b></span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>The thirteenth is closely regarded to <b>TERMS AND CONDITIONS: ALT + 9.</b></span><br /> <p><span>If you haven't read the terms, or you are curious what are your rights, or what rules you have to follow use: <b>SHIFT + ALT + 9 </b>in Mozilla Firefox and <b>ALT + 9, then ENTER </b>within Internet Explorer.</span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p><span>Last, but not least, no Fourteenth <b>HELP</b>S you whenever you have some issues regarding the use of the social network:<span> </span><b>ALT + 0.</b></span><br /> <p><span>You may find here all the answers of your possible questions. <b>SHIFT + ALT + 9 </b>within Mozilla Firefox and <b>ALT + 0, then ENTER </b>in Internet Explorer.<b></b></span><br />

After loggin into Yahoo mail, I am getting kicked out of internet explorer as soon as I try to read my mail.


Hello, it seems that you're having problems with Internet Explorer. Have you tried using a different browser like Mozilla Firefox? :) Please go here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/ then click on Download Firefox Free..wait for a few moments and a prompt will appear if you want to save or run the software. Click Run, after downloading, it will install. After installing, try to open the Mozilla Firefox shortcut and try to browse your Yahoo! Mail. :)
