You generally only get this error when trying to view a dynamic web page. This is a generic error. If you receive this error message when trying to run a dynamic web page such as ASP, PHP, etc. and you are getting not getting a detailed error message then you are more likely seeing a generic error message generated by Internet Explorer.

To get a detailed error message to help with debugging your dynamic web page you need to Turn Off Friendly HTTP Error messages in Internet Explorer (IE).

For more information and a step by step guide to do this, please see Turn Off Friendly HTTP Error Messages in IE.

If, however, you are getting this message elsewhere, please post back as to where and when you are getting this error.

    HTTP 500 errors are not that bad.

    It's not an error on your own machine. It's an error on a website that your machine has connected to.

    Quitting Internet Explorer and reopening Internet Explorer should clear the error.

    Shutting down your computer and restarting it should also clear the error. Make sure that you are shutting down the computer completely, not just making it "sleep" on standby, or "hibernate."

I am trying to delete names out of the pop up boxes when tryimg to long onto yahoo , facebook, people that have used the computer and just scroll to their name and click and it will go to your username in...


Actually, it depends on what internet browser you are using.

For Firefox:
Using the Up or Down keys on your keyboard, or moving your mouse cursor above an auto-complete entry "selects" it. To delete this entry and permanently remove it from Firefox's internal auto-complete database, hit Delete (Del), and the entry is gone.
**To remove multiple auto-complete entries from Firefox, keep your mouse cursor above the first or second, and repeatedly hit the Delete key.

It is almost the same thing with Internet Explorer:

Launch Internet Explorer. Browse to the website for which Internet Explorer is saving the undesired AutoComplete entry. Click in the box on that website where the username would be entered. A drop-down list containing your user name should appear. If it does not, type the first few letters of the user name until you can see your user name on the drop-down list.
Press the down arrow key on the keyboard until the username that you would like to delete the AutoComplete entry for is highlighted.

Press the "Delete" key. A message will appear asking if you are sure that you want to delete that AutoComplete entry. Click "Yes" to confirm.

  5. Add additional names if necessary.
  6. Click OK, and exit Server Manager.

Resolving intermittent Windows USB device issues


PROBLEM: USB Devices (Both internal and external) work intermittently.
DISCUSSION: Issue is caused by Windows power management disabling the USB Root Hub to save power (This option is on BY DEFAULT in all Windows installations)
RESOLUTION: Open Device Manager, scroll down to the USB Root Hubs Listings (There may be as few as two most I've seen is 7) Right click each hub, select Properties on the drop down menu, then click the POWER MANAGEMENT tab. There you will find a check box to allow windows to turn off this device to save power. Uncheck the box and close the window, repeat on remaining USB Root Hubs, then reboot.
This will resolve most intermittent USB device issues.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

I am attempting to transfere E mail facility to windows mail. They cannot verify the host/ server as tools.sky.com please verify the correct address for incoming and outgoing.


Applogies for the copy and paste, but it's rather long winded to type, but sky tools is not the email setting, see below:-

1.Open Outlook Express, click Tools then select Accounts 2. Click the Mail tab, then click Add and select Mail 3. The wizard will start. Type in your name then click Next 4. Enter your email address then click Next 5. Leave the My Incoming Mail Server is a POP3 Server drop down box as POP3. In Incoming Mail Server enter: pop.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces). In Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server enter: smtp.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces). 6. In the Account Name Box enter the first part of your @sky.com email address (everything before the @ sign). In the Password Box, enter the password for your @sky.com email account, then click Next. 7. Click Finish 8. To complete the acount creation process click Tools then select Accounts 9. Click the Mail tab, then click Properties 10. Click the My server requires authentication box to place a tick inside. Click OK 11. Repeat the above process for each mail account you want to set up, including sub accounts. Each sub account will have a different email address and password. If you're having trouble sending email from Outlook Express (or other email software), it may mean you need to switch on SMTP authentication.
