Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Internet connection lost when windows updates, have to do system restore to get back online. Tried downloading firefox and safari neither browser can 'connect to server'. Also the anti virus software can never update and the windows help & support section 'cannot connect'. Itunes cannot connect to store either. Internet explorer only works if windows updates are turned off. Two other laptops also using Vista work fine using the same wireless router and the same problem existed when I connected via the Ethernet port

I had he same problem connecting to the internet after downloading the updates for Windows XP. It turn out to be that the surcurity downloads are to harsh for some anti virius programmes, and I was told to uninstall my free version of Zone Alarm and try to connect to the internet again. This I did do and was able to connect to internet again. I have since re-installed the Zone Alarm programme and I am able to use the internet once again with the above working.

I hope this help's you.

I want to know if I need to update to IE 11? Why do I get a pop-up everyday telling me to do that?


Use Caution. Pop-ups can appear for various reasons and they may not be legitimate.

To check for updates for your Windows computer, simple go to Start > Control Panel > Windows Update and choose to check for updates. If you have updates, go ahead and choose to install them.

It's important for the security of your computer to have an up-to-date browser, which is why you should get the newest, especially since they are free or included like IE (Internet Explorer).

Other good browsers include:

Firefox

Running updated Windows XP. Switched from Firefox to Chrome browser. Downloaded Chrome and deleted Firefox. Chrome would not install in regular mode because it could not find an internet connection. ...


This is a problem related to a Norton security software that you might have on your computer awhile , so the best way to correct the problem is to download Norton removal tool and then after that run the software and that should do it.

Internet disconnects on using mozilla,safari,google chrome except internet explorer


This solution depends on how long ago you installed all 3 Browsers on your system.
I'm assuming you're using a Windows PC running Windows XP or Windows Vista

1- First, you want to uninstall Safari and Google Chrome (one at a time) from your PC. These two browsers are new to PC's and are not fully debugged/tested yet.
2- after uninstalling both, restart your computer 1 time.
3- After starting up again, start Firefox and try to surf to a website you haven't tried before on it.
4- If unsuccessful, check which version of Firefox you're using. If it is older than version 3.01, use Internet explorer to go to their website and download the new version.
5- uninstall the old version of firefox first, before installing the new version (always follow this rule for all future program installations, unless otherwise stated in the instructions for the program)
6- Once you have the new version of Firefox installed, run it and check for internet connectivity.
7- Firefox may ask to get settings from Internet Explorer at some point, say yes.

Let us know how it goes and rate us. :)

First down explorer then firefox why is my p.c. killing my browsers?


By "Explorer" I'm assuming you mean Internet Explorer and not Windows Explorer, since you refer to other browsers. This sounds like you have gotten some viruses. Do you have anti-virus software installed? All Windows Defender does is protect against ad-ware and spy-ware or in simple terms, pop-ups. I would suggest you get a good anti-virus program and scan your system! By the way, you don't have to download anything to get viruses from the internet.
