Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My computer has the Microsoft 2000 Pro OS and my browser is Firefox ver. 3.6.9 When I open my browser I get the following message: "Although this page in encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party. Are you sure you want to continue sending this information?" What does this mean, and what should I do about it?

    That's the reason for my concern. I am not trying to enter a secured site. I'm trying to enter my home page, msn.com. The message just started coming up recently. I went for many, many months without receiving the message. Thanks.

    Yes, the solution was helpful; however I wish that MNfisherman had been a little more explicit in his instructions about how to stop the messages from appearing. I really had to search in Tools > Options to find the place where I could turn the message off. Thank you for your help.

Just click ok. This is normal information. Any information you send over the internet can be read by third parties. In the tools and options tab, you can set it so you don't keep getting this message.

Hi. Error message tells you that you are entering to a secured site. Usually, this sites start with https:// = s means secured. If you know the site that you are entering then all you need to do is click continue.

    Hi. Yes, the URL of the site I'm trying to access is: http://www.msn.com/. This is my home page that my browser defaults to when I open Foxfire.

Some application not install like, microsoft office, Mozilla firefox. There's show 0xc0000005 problem. What's the solution?


Probable malware/infection. There were some issues with windows updates causing this error, but I wouldn't rule out your computer is infected.
Either get a bootable (LiveCD) of an AV program that can look for rootkits, malware, virus, and clean the computer.
Also, good idea to have backup of data incase you have to wipe/reinstall OS and apps.

Could be you need the latest Adobe pdf file reader on your computer to open the files. Software can be such a PIA. Can also be because you are using firefox 8, a real old version of the browser. Update the browser!

Apparently Firefox updated itself to the most recent version available, which is not compatible with RoboForm Adapter.

Try to find more recent version of RoboForm Adapter.
