I dont have passport how can i get one?


I presume you are referring to a Microsoft .Net Passport to allow you access to certain sites or Microsoft Instant Messaging, Windows Live sites?

You don't mention what version of Windows you're running so will walk you through setting one up in XP and Vista or 7.

Please note: You do not have to have a Hotmail or MSN email account to work with .Net Passport, any valid, existing email address will work. So if you have a @gmail.com or @yahoo.com account, you can still set it up as a .Net Passport.

XP first:
1. Click on Start then Control Panel. Open up User Accounts and click on your account.
2. Click on where it says "Set up my account to use a .Net Passport.
3. Follow the screen instructions.
You can use your existing email address or sign up for a new on through Hotmail or MSN. Just follow the instructions on each screen and you will be all set.

In Vista or 7 it does not have the wizard option in your User Account.

1. Click here and look to the left side of the page and click where it says "Sign Up".
2. It will walk you through the same wizard to set your .Net Passport up.

Easy as pie.

Thank you for using FixYa.

AOL Information

AOL has a compression feature built into the browser that compresses all the graphics you view on a web site. The following info will assist you in turning off this feature. Doing so will allow you to download graphics off of this site that are uncompressed. You will also find your viewing pleasure enhanced by the fact that you will hopefully be able to see the graphics as intended by the designer.

AOL's default in Internet Explorer for Web Graphics is "Compressed". That can be changed by going in "My AOL" and then Preferences. Go to WWW, which will bring up the Internet Explorer preferences. Click on the tab for "Web Graphics" and then click to remove the Check Mark on "Use Compressed Graphics"

It does help. You may also run Netscape Navigator while logged on to AOL and it gives a good presentation of web sites.

I want to log in to facebook i cant log in it shows me bad resqust 400http


Sounds like a spyware problem to me. Try running Ad Aware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/.


There is a low-level problem in the client or the Web server or both. 95% of the time this is because of a problem on the client system e.g. there is something unstable on your PC running the Web browser.
  • Is your PC secure ?. If your PC is not well-protected, then all kinds of problems may occur - including HTTP 400 errors. If you run Windows, stay uptodate with automatic security updates from Microsoft and possibly consider getting a registry cleaner. Always have good anti-virus and spyware protection. Invest in a hardware firewall if you can afford one. Be sensible surfing the Web - block pop-up windows and avoid bad sites. If your PC security is compromised, then Web traffic out from your PC to the Internet may be secretly corrupted by malware (spyware, viruses, etc.) running on your PC. This can be difficult for you to detect.
  • Have you installed web-based software ?. Some social networking and games sites ask you to download and run software on your PC so you can interact with other people on the Internet directly (without using your Web browser). This software, if badly written or even criminal, can corrupt all HTTP traffic from your PC. Getting rid of that defective software can be difficult. At worst you may have to reinstall your operating system again (possibly losing all your personal data on your PC if you do not have backup).
  • How stable is your Internet connection ?. If you have recently changed ISPs or your ISP is very slow or unreliable, then Web traffic from your PC out to any site on the Internet may be corrupt. Your ISP may have reconfigured some of their setup (e.g. introduced new proxy servers or cacheing) that is causing some instability. A possible sign of problems here is if you can not easily browse the Web site of your ISP. You can also try to check that the Web site you are actually visiting is the one you think you are visiting. For example, you may have a DNS problem. You can check this using a 'ping' test. A DNS problem may be caused by your ISP or may be on your own system e.g. in a 'hosts' file.
  • Do you get the error on more than one Web site ?. If you get the error on lots of Web sites, this indicates the problem is on your PC, not on those sites.
  • Do you get the error using more than one browser ?. If you have two or more Web browsers installed on your PC and the behaviour is not the same (one Web browser gives an HTTP 400 error visiting a site, another Web browser does not give the 400 error visiting the same site), then one of your browsers may be defective. Try to find an upgrade or security fix for the problem browser. If you recently changed some configuration options in the problem browser, try reversing the change to see if that helps.
  • Do you get the error on big Web sites ?. If you get the problem on quite a small site, visit some of the bigger sites like Amazon, Ebay, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo. If you get the problem only on small sites, it indicates a problem with only those sites or the traffic from your PC to those sites.
  • Do you get the error on simple URLs ?. If you get a problem with a long complicated URL (such as http://www.xxx.com?PHPrequest=643&value=dres&cookies=No) but not with a shorter simpler URL for the same site (such as http://www.xxx.com), this can indicate a problem with the Web server on the site you are trying to visit. This is not conclusive evidence, but is a good starting point. Contact the owners of the Web site and describe the problem to them. You may find for example the problem occurs with POST methods (you are both submitting data to the Web site and retrieving data from the Web site), but not with GET methods (you are only retrieving data from the Web site).
  • Do you have a cache problem ?. Try clearing your cookies, browser cache and browsing history in your Web browser. Disable or remove any third-party cacheing or 'web accelerator' software you installed. Then try rebooting your PC and any firewall/router you use to connect to the Internet. That may not fix the error, but at least may eliminate any problem due to old settings on your PC.
  • What has changed since you started getting the HTTP 400 problem ?. In general terms, think about what has changed on your PC since you first started seeing the problem. This may cover any of the items mentioned above. Work backwards and see if undoing those changes makes any difference.

Unable to upload


I apologize, on my screen it simply shows the text "unable to upload" under the category of Vista problems. If you're unable to upload to any web-site, I'd say you probably have some firewall or security suite (antivirus, antispy, ect) problem where a port is being blocked. If this is only happening with your ISP webmail and your ISP given web-site it is definitely a block on their end, although I'm not sure they'd maliciously try and MAC filter you or anything. Again, sorry about the post.

I had a MYRIAD of problems when I first got mine. I took it back after spending ENDLESS HOURS trying to tweak it.

It was the device itself; I traded it for another (same model; same everything). The first one was just a lemon. The second one has worked like a champ.

Microsoft bought Eisenworld. Both the Eisenworld and Alohabob web sites have been shut down. It will be added to Vista though.

Straighten out all that junk, in your room, it's under there somewhere!. ;>D
