Question about Dell Precision Workstation T7400 PC Desktop

4 Answers

My browser (Explorer 8) seems to get hijacked from every site - CNN, MSN, airlines, Orbitz, you name it. My IT person has been working on the problem for a week and says there is no browser hijacker--its the ads on the websites. Do I have a hidden hijacker on the computer? This did not happen in the past.

Your proxy server may have been changed to redirect your browser.
To check, goto control panel / internet options / connections / lan settings, at the bottom of the page is the proxy setting, either change it to your usual proxy server, or if you dont use a proxy ( i dont) delete it and untick the use proxy .
Here is a guide from microsoft if that does not work http://www.microsoft.com/protect/terms/hijacking.aspx

Every time i go onto the zoosk web site it keeps telling me to upgrade my browser which i dont understand & cant seem to get rid of


Most modern web sites require a newer version of a "web browser" in order to ensure that all of the features of the web site work correctly. You are probably using an old version of "Internet Explorer" which is the web browser built in to Windows.
If you are using Microsoft Windows XP or newer, you should visit: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-8 and download an install Internet Explorer 8.
If you have an older version of Windows, the alternate "Firefox" browser can get downloaded from http://getfirefox.com. When you install that, click on the "Firefox" icon to access web sites like Zoosk that need a newer browser.
If you are running very old Windows system like Windows 98, you may not be able to get rid of the message and should consider getting a newer computer.

When I click a movie online I get the message that IE cannot display the web page


Method 1:
Test whether you can view another Web page
Start Internet Explorer/Browsers.
In the Address bar at the top of the browser window, enter one of the following addresses:
1. http://www.microsoft.com/
2. http://www.msn.com/
3. http://support.microsoft.com/

If you can go to these sites without any "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".
The site may be temporarily offline or experiencing other issues. If you can it another issue.

Hope it helps.

How do i know when my friends have me block or are on invisible while they online?


There are various web application that is able to reveal invisible Yahoo Messenger user, XEEBER and Invisible scanner are the better ones in the market, its free!As for MSN Messenger, there is only one tool available, the Show Invisible MSN Messenger Status detector, it reveals, finds, and detects you and your contact lists MSN information and inform you all you want to know about your contacts. For example which person deleted or blocked you.

For those who are curious about which of his/her friends deleted or blocked them, do give the service a try but be cautious, I believe the tool is meant to be some sort of email harvesting application or another email hijacking tool created by spammers. Give it a try but remember to change your password as soon as you’re done with it.
Rule number one, never reveal your password to other company besides the original service provider.

Here is a cool little MSN Name Trick that allows you to have an invisible MSN Screen Name. This nickname trick should work for most versions of Messenger (ie MSN 6, 7.5, 8.0). Just follow these instructions:
  • Open the Options window so you can change your MSN Name
  • Hold down ALT on your keyboard and type in 0160 using the Numeric Keypad (usually on the right side of your keyboard)
  • Click OK to save your new Invisible MSN Name!

Hi,

Please follow steps to resolved issue

The Solutions to MSN Error Code 8004882080048820_lan.jpg Internet Explorer - Try removing the tick next to Internet Explorer 'Proxy server' settings, instead, go with the 'Automatically detect settings'.
1) Launch Internet Explorer, click Tools and then click Internet Options.
From the Internet Options dialog box, go to the Connections tab.
Click LAN Setting. Un check the Use a proxy server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections) checkbox. Finally positively tick: 'Automatically detect settings'.
2) Register softpub.dll.
Click Start (Button), and then click Run, type regsvr32 softpub.dll. Restart MSN Messenger. See also Error code 81000314
3) If necessary, logon as a local administrator and set the computer's clock to the correct date and time. (Check on the internet if possible.)
4) Turn off the firewall temporarily. Check firewall settings such as Norton: "Block access to secure sites". If this cures the problem, make sure that Microsoft's MSN Messenger is allowed full access through your firewall.
NetGear problem, but also with some other routers
a) Enter IP address 192.168.0.1 in your browser's address bar.
b) Log on with ISP user name and password.
c) Enter Admin, password
d) Navigate to advanced menu, WAN set-up
e) Change MTU size to 1400
5) Try a password of no more than 8 characters.
6) If you are using IE 7.0 check the SSL Settings. Internet options advanced (Tab) scroll down to the bottom. Security section. Tick 'Use ssl 2.0'.
7) One of the simplest ways of curing MSN error 80048820 is to unplug, or restart your modem. This is particularly effective for cable modems.
8) We should have tried this solution before; check that the MSN site is 'up' 'available'. However, even if the site is down, you don't usually get error code 80048820.
8a) As a variation, of checking online, you could try phoning your local Microsoft Support office. Local area numbers available from http://support.microsoft.com.
9) Have you just installed any anti-virus software? Did the anti-virus software just make a big update? Try disabling and see if that cures the error.
10) A drastic solution is to try uninstalling MSN Messenger version 8.0 or 7.5 and install Microsoft MSN version 7.0.

Hope it can resolved issue
Thanks for using Fixya

Search will work with google or msn but will not let me click on anything.Have to type in directly at the top to visit any site.


That sounds like a web browser issue, possibly a hijacker. I would try using another web browser. Also, I urge you to scan for viruses and spyware.

Trying to go to pogo.com. after it takes me there


A number of services produce the 444 error, applications failing, SQL database, PHP scripts etc.

However, it seems that if you are being re-directed against your will from one site to another - you have a browser hijacking programme on your computer.

Download HiJack This, and CCleaner
Run them both.
Go to Internet Explorer
Tools->Internet Options and delete your Cache, Cookies and history

Reboot your machine and you should be good to go!
