If your connected to a router, is your router connected to a firewall as well.

One thing I have noticed too on Vista is even though you tell windows security to turn off the firewall it doesn't mean it is completely turned off unless you go into the control panel, select admistration tools (if you have access to it), double click on services, select windows firewall, and disable it.

Then it is shut down for good.

For All XP user Don't Use IE 7.0 & higher version



Applicable for all window XP (all edition, all PCs and Laptops)

Hi there,
If you are getting trouble after the updates of internet explorer..

Then I would suggest you to Roll Back it to the original Internet Explorer (i.e Internet Explorer version 6.0)

Which come up with Installation of Win Xp with Service Pack 2.

Bad Effect due to IE 7.0 or higher version:

Screen hang up, internet freezes abruptly, prominent windows crashes anytime.

So to stop these problems, better to run with lower and safe version of IE:

To remove Internet Explorer 7 from your PC use the following methods

Method 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Step 1: Use "Add or Remove Programs" to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b In the Open box, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.

c. In the list of programs, click Windows Internet Explorer 7, and then click Remove.

d. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7. Also remove if any updates under this entry found.

If you cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 7 by using this method, try Method 2.

Method 2: Use Spuninst.exe to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

Run Spuninst.exe to uninstall Internet Explorer 7

a. Click Start, and then click Run.

b. In the Open box, type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe, and then click OK.

c. Follow the wizard instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.

After you uninstall Internet Explorer 7, double-click the Internet Explorer icon to verify that Internet Explorer 6 is restored.

This will bring up you to run Internet explorer as it come up with the installation kit, which is safe and reliable.

Have Nice Surfing!!

Win internet explorer not responding; so i have toshut down the program & start over. how do i fix this


Hi,
Usually it is caused by a failing extension or an add-on to your internet explorer. Sometimes, it is caused by the settings as well that some websites tries to add on your internet explorer. you can either reset the entire internet explorer or just put the default settings back. here's what you need to do: -open your internet explorer -click on tools -select internet options -go to the advance tab -select whether you want to reset default settings or reset the entire IE. (I suggest trying the reset default settings first because resetting the IE will delete your favorites / bookmarks as well). -re open IE and see the changes
hope this helps.

Toshiba Satellite ?Vista home?Start button not working


> clicking on START has no response.

Have you tried a different mouse, just in case that the LEFT button on the mouse is malfunctioning?

Does pressing the "Windows-flag" key on your keyboard (between CTRL and ALT, on the left) cause the same effect as clicking the START button?

Start Internet Explorer.
Click Tools.
Click Internet Options.
Click Connections
Check that your PPoE entry is present and is set to "automatic".

Internet exploer closes after I sign in to Yahoo on windows vista


Yes, you are infected. Go to safernetworking.org and download spybot search and destroy the current version.

Go through the thing carefully. If you need a detailed explanation on how to configure it to clean out the system, because it will need to be configured properly, then it can get out the infection.

If it can't, there is another way, but this is the easy way.
