Sometimes proxy setting or a firewall or even the anti-virus can stop Yahoo Messenger from downloading. If you've turned off the firewall, you may want to have a look into your proxy settings or anti-virus.

Alternatively, you can download the application from a different website like Softpedia. Yahoo will only give you an installer which will download the application and cause one of the above problems. Here's a link to Yahoo Messenger 10. Even after installation, you might have to grant access to Yahoo from anti-virus, otherwise it may not connect. Usually when it's trying to connect a pop-up from AVG will ask if you want to let Yahoo Messenger to access Internet and you have to allow this.

Your proxy may have been altered due to a virus or malware.
Scan for both, i use malwarebytes for my malware scanner.
Check your proxy settings, control panel / internet options / connections / lan settings / i do not use a proxy, so for me this is unticked, if you use a proxy, make sure it has not been changed .

It is possible you still have a virus on your computer preventing Internet Explorer and Chrome. I recommend making sure your virus scanner is updated, and doing a complete scan of your hard drive.

In addition, it is possible that a virus on your computer has changed your proxy settings (which could explain why Firefox works while IE and Chrome do not). To verify that there are no proxy settings on Internet Explorer, open the application. Assuming you are using IE8 (other versions should be similar), go to Tools, and Internet Options. You can configure your proxy settings from the Connections tab, and clicking "Settings" for any applicable connections.

If you are using a direct connection to the internet (i.e., Cable or through a router), Never dial a connection should be selected. If this area is grayed out and there are no connections, this is not likely the problem.

Finally, make sure you are not working offline. Click tools once again, and make sure Work Offline does not have a check mark by it. This may be under the File menu on different versions of Internet Explorer.

Block internet browsing but i can still update my anti-virus


Friend just go to your control panel in that you will see that user account and family safety. Select the users account rather than administrator ie account of yours( Your account should have administrator previledge.) Now set parential control on and click on the settings which are alike window webs control laying under window settings. Now on this window just select the block some website or contents & select Only allow website which are on the allow list.
By default all the websites are blocked except you alows them by adding it to allowed list whick link would be above this check box. Also check the Block file downloads so that only you can update the antivirus or window updates as some download also can opens some websites. Thats all.

I dont have internet conection then how could i update my avast pro antivirus


Hi!

If you do not have internet connection, what you could do is look for a computer with one or ask a friend that has connection and download an update form their site. Save the update to a disk and run it.

Here is the link to their update page:
http://www.avast.com/download-update

I hope this helps.

Cant download ares or limewire


Update windows explorer on windows vista.
Here is the reason why it closes down your AOL when your going to download from ARES or LIMEWIRE because from Internet Explorer (Internet Options) automatically change the network setting, supposed to be Automatic Setting to connect on the internet but it change into Bypass or Proxy Server "check it there". We encounter this before but I do is to update the Internet explorer from 7.0 version up to the latest version of IE.
Hope were the same problem and help you guide about this. Good luck!

NEED HELP!!! Rhapsody Software Download Problem


Okay...MacAffee is causing problems with your connection and with the download/update. You will need to right click on the MacAffee icon in the system tray (bottom right of the screen) and open the program to turn it off (or just quit the program). Also make sure your firewall is down when doing this.

Re-install BBDMS (aka Rhapsody), and allow the update to happen. Once this is complete (assuming that MacAffee is the only anti-virus software running) launch the program, connect your MP3 player, and "authorize" the player on your computer.

This should take care of the problem.

I would also recomend a different anti-virus and firewall program. AVG isn't as invasive, and PCTools firewall will allow you to configure what programs are allowed to use the internet.
