Window Tab Flashing

I would scan for virsus first. Then a malware scan second. In all likely hood you have picked up a bug somewere. If this does not work, you might try resetting your internet browser. In Internet Explorer (IE), click on tools, internet options, the advance tab, click on reset and then restore advance settings. You will have to close IE and reopen it for the changes to take affect.

I cannot read my email on hotmail

You probably need to empty your Java cache. Close your web browser (all open windows), then open your Control Panel (from the Start menu) and double click on the Java icon. Under the Java settings, you'll see a heading for temporary files, and a button to delete temporary files. Click this button -- it may take a minute or two to delete them all.

Once the temporary files have been deleted, close the Java applet and reopen your web browser. You should now be able to click on your Hotmail emails and see them. If they still don't work, restart the computer and try it again.

On facebook games ,i used to play any game i wanted but now only certain games load ,how do i fix this problem with such as farmville,ponzi inc

First, try to access your account in a different internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera) or different computer, if you can access the other games, then the problem could be the internet browser that you are using.

You need to try optimizing your internet browser. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer version 6
1. Open IE6 > Tools > Internet Options.
2. Click the Delete Cookies button and Delete History.
3. Click on OK > Close and re-open your IE6.
4. Try accessing your e-mail account.

* For Internet Explorer version 7
1. Open IE7 > Tools > Internet Options.
2. Click the "Delete" button under the Browsing History option.
3. Delete the Cookies, Internet Files
4. Click on OK > Close and re-open IE7
5. Try accessing your e-mail account.

* For Mozilla FireFox
1. Open Firefox > Tools
2. Select "Clear Recent History"
3. Select Cookies, Cache, Browsing and Download History.
4. Close and re-open Firefox
5. Access your e-mail

Clicking on links in email don't work

Links in an email in the Junk folder will never work. It is set this way to protect you. However if you are clicking a link in an email in the Inbox, right click the link and then click "Open Hyperlink". Once you do that the links on emails in your Inbox should work from now on. If not, is IE your default browser? If not make it so. If that does not work open Internet Options >> Control Panel >> Programs Tab >> Reset Web Settings.
