    Thank you for the suggestion. I shut down each night for that reason.

    I ended up paying the Geek Squad to help me remotely. It appears that all of those toolbars like Google, Yahoo, Mahalo etc. were the issue. Both browsers, IE and Firefox are back to working fine. So, disabling them is the answer to this problem.

    Thanks

Try completely powering down and restarting the computer once in a while. If you always just go into sleep / stand by mode, some software will eventually stop working properly. A friend of mine had the exact same problem, and after I had her reboot (not just sleep/standby) it worked just fine.

Hi, in order to play the Zynga Texas Holdem Poker.

Please download and install the latest browser Mozilla Firefox 4 from the below link:

It said that my mozilla firefox has crashed,how will i be able to fix it as soon as possible


A browser "crash" is not a permanent problem. It simply means the browser has encountered a problem during that browsing session, and cannot continue running. The browser will then usually close. (If not, you should terminate the browser program - Use the Windows Task Manager, or restart the computer if necessary.) When you restart the browser, it should then function normally again.

There are many factors that can lead to a browser crash. Those can include glitches in the browser's code, or problems with the operating system, or problems with a particular site that has been visited. Most current browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome) are quite stable, but nearly every browser will experience a crash from time to time. It's a small annoyance, but not a cause for serious concern.

To minimize the likelihood of a browser crash (and other system malfunction), you should make sure that:
(1) your browser is up-to-date, and
(2) your operating system has all patches and updates installed.
The current version of Firefox is 3.6.15. It's also good idea to run a full anti-virus scan of your computer periodically, and to do other forms of regular maintenance (disk defragmentation, eliminate temporary & junk files, scan for registry errors).

Hi! IE 8 has some errors / bugs in genuine itself, so if there is any bug in system, then these both errors lead to IE struck mode.

please consider to remove the present IE and try to install IE 6 or IE 7 for the time being that to if you want to do in IE, otherwise try to opt for Mozilla or chrome.

but the word "APPcrash" represents word of "application crash", so better to install fine one before complete uninstall of present one.

Don't forget to mention error code in next reply mail if the problem still exists with above operations!

Internet Explorer wont let me get on facebook


Try using a different browser, it's a pain to switch from a browser you've been using for a while, but since IE is known as one of the slowest browsers, it might be a relief. Try Safari, Firefox or Chrome.
Hope this helps!

Firefox Problems with Vista


I have had the same problem with Firefox and also remembering my login information in Vista. The XP operating system is fine the problem is only with Microsoft's Vista operating system. It could have something to do with Vista's security setup, either that or Microsoft is just kicking the competition around? Actually it's probably a little bit of both those reasons.

The only way I have been able to correct the problem is to download the IE Tab add-on. It allows you to set up a tab to open with the IE engine embedded. If you have a site that is giving you login problems, when it is open select the tools button. In the dropdown box select the IE Tab Options. The problem web site should be highlighted in the pop-up display box. Select the add button to the right and it will transfer the web site to the list of sites that you want to open with the IE operating engine.

Now that web site will always open under the IE operating engine when you start up Firefox. After you login to that web site if you go back to the tools button and select options again, you can save all opened tabs as your home page. Now when you start up Firefox you will still have all the advantages of Firefox and those hard to login web sites will automatically load and sign you in the same as they did before.

Someday Microsoft will probably stop teasing Firefox and let them in on what they have to do to get around this obstacle, but then again maybe not.
