Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

When I close 1 window, it closes all the other windows

I have multiple windows open on my screen. This is because when I click on a link on the first window I open, it opens up the link on another window. But when I close the second window, the first window would close too. It would show an error message saying "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem." It so annoying because some advertisements would pop out on another window but I don't wanna close it because if I do that, everything else would close and it would reopen another window back to the home page and I would lost all the stuff I was on with.

Go to
www.lavasoft.com and download Adaware Free Edition, and run a scan for spyware. If you dont have a good Anti-virus scanner do a search in google for AVG free. Those two are really good at keeping your machine relatively free of Virii and spyware.

If after a scan of both anti spyware and Anti virus shows clean, reboot your machine and try to open and close some internet explorer windows again. If this is still a problem you may want to find out what version of Internet explorer you are running, if it is version 7 you could try to repair the installation and see if that helps.

Alternatively you could remove Internet Explorer 7 altogether and continue using version 6 if it has no problems running.
Hope this helps.

How do i close a window so that i can open a new one?


Is this a computer problem? If so, you do not have to close a window before you open another one. You can have many windows open at the same time. If you have a Microsoft Windows computer you click on the red x at the top right of the screen to close a window (unless you have Windows 8 in which case some windows do not have the red x). On a Windows 8 PC move the mouse pointer to the upper left corner of the screen and a little window will pop up. Right click it and choose close.

Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.
