Man you have to download the supporting mozilla firefox , internet explorer and adobe flash player.

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!!

Internet explorer 8 hangs on opening a web page


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

There could be several reasons why IE8 is hanging. If you're using Windows Vista / 7 you may want to upgrade to IE-9. Click here to download IE-9

If you're using Windows XP, you can try the following:

1) Click here to: Reset Internet Explorer settings

2) Click here for: What to do if Internet Explorer stops responding

3) Make sure you have Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3 installed on your PC. IE-8 only runs correctly with SP2 or SP3.

4) Re-install IE-8. Click here to Download IE-8 If you can't get to the internet on your PC with IE-8, use another browser if you have one. If you don't have another browser installed on your PC, download Firefox or Google Chrome to a USB thumb-drive from another computer and download one of them to your PC from there.

5) If you've (either, by accident or intentionally) downloaded a third-party browser helper, there may be a software conflict causing IE-8 to hang. To check, go to your Control Panel and select 'Add or Remove Programs'. Look to see if there is a 'third party' browser helper installed. If so, uninstall it.

6) If you're able to get to the Internet at all, go to Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) - download and install it. Click here to download. You may have something on your PC that MSE can help you with.

7) Make sure you have enough RAM in your PC. At the very minimum, Windows XP needs 512Mb of RAM. 1GB is better.

Hopefully this will help.

After upgrading from Vista Home Premium 32 to Windows 7 Home Premium 32 I have terrible blurry text and get headaches. My display is a Vizio HDTV 20'' and I have NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT display adapter....


Hello,

the problem is because the VGA driver has not been installed. The VGA driver for Vista is different from that of Win 7. Running the upgrade also could cause the problem.

Back up all your important files, and re-run the win 7 afresh. You have to re-run by inserting the win 7 cd into your Cd drive, restart your system and allow it boot from CD and not running from windows.

In the process of the installation, format your hard drive and allow the installation to complete.

After then, install the drivers like; Sound, vga, etc and do windows update. After the windows update, your display will be unique.

Take care.

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. :)

I need to install internet explorer 7.how do I go about doing that


Go to microsofts site and search for it. You can download the shole package or install it over the web. You could also run windows update but you may end up with ie8 by doing that. I am not sure if you want that though....

Use Firefox anyway...its way better than any version of ie.

Corrupted Desktop?


No, this is a hardware setting. When you checked your display monitor for manual settings did you see any? There would be display width, height, pincushion, trapezoid, etc. Which monitor do you have? Also you can still have Internet Explorer installed with any other browser as your default. When you go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Windows Features select Internet Explorer to reinstall that. Firefox does not support ActiveX scripting which is necessary to run many Microsoft diagnostic programs so never completely uninstall IE. You may also just download IE7 which is a tabbed browser like FireFox. Choosing FireFox allows better security but that is only because it does not use ActiveX.

Go to
http://technet.microsoft.com/sv-se/sysinternals/cb56073f-62a3-4ed8-9dd6-40c84cb9e2f5(en-us).aspx

and download process explorer.
Start it, and use the 'target' icon (to the right of the binoculars)
and 'drag' the icon to the command-box like window.
Then process explorer will tell you which program or process is causing this window to appear.
Find this program or process in windows file explorer and delete it.
Done!
Tip.
Also download autoruns, a program that shows ALL autostarting programs, much better than win 98's msconfig
