Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Vista website not found

Hi,

I checked the connections and as far as I can see it is not set up to use a proxy, but to make sure how would I know that? In the Connections tab of IE Options it says to click on settings to set up a proxy, but the settings is 'greyed out' so I cannot choose it.

Good to know there is no proxy.Because if there was one that might be the cause of the problem.You have to reset IE back to defaults.Go to the menu bar for IE click Tools,Internet Options,then go to the Advance tab,and click reset.

Laptop is showing that my wifi is picking up excellent service but when i try to surf each page shows " webpage may be temporarily down"


Hi,

Try connecting to known sites like Yahoo or Hotmail. If it shows the same message, kindly check your browser's internet connection setup.
If you are using IE:

1) Go to Tools->Internet Options.
2) Click the Connections Tab folder.
3) Click the LAN Settings button.
4) Make sure the Automatically detect settings is ticked.
5) Don't tick the Use automatic configuration script.
6) Don't tick the Use proxy server for your LAN for now.
7) Click OK. Then Click OK again.
8) See if you can surf to the website. if not, Do Step 1 to Step 5. Click Use proxy server for the LAN. You need to type the address and port number for this. You have to ask your internet provider for this or your System Admin person.

If you can surf to yahoo, then probably the website you are trying to surf is down.

Solution of error with yahoo 81003016


Hi,

Click Messenger tab. Make sure the program window is open.

Then, click Connection Preferences. It will open up a window for you to work on setting up your connection.

On the Connection options, you can either choose:
1. Connect directly to the internet. (This is the recommended setting if you never had connection problems.)
2. Connect via a proxy server. (Use this option if you are behind a firewall and know your proxy server settings.
From the Internet connection option, you can choose among these three–Dial-Up, Broadband (DSL/Cable) or High-speed (T1/LAN). Once you’re able to select all your options, click Apply then click OK.


You may try switching connection from Connect directly to the internet to Connect via a Proxy Server and choosing HTTP Proxy then click Apply. This should work for you.


Good luck.

You have to disable your proxy settings from internet explorer.
Open internet explorer.
Click on tools >> internet options >> Connections
>> LAN settings >> uncheck everything
and then click on ok >> ok

and then close internet explorer and check your outlook is working well or not.

It sounds like you activated a firewall somewhere in there. Calm down and go find out about your proxy server if you were using one in the first place.

Also, what website instructions do you think you followed, anyhow? Lots of websites, lots of instructions...you've given no indication which one you chose.

FIRST, Make sure you have the operating system restore or a copy of the operating system installation CD or DVD.
SECOND, download and run a full virus scan. To try to remove traces of the virus. Once your system is comprised you have no guarantee that a virus will re submerge.
THIRD, Back up all of your data, ie My Documtents, Favorites, Desktop, to blank CD or DVD. DO NOT BACKUP ANY EXECUTABLES.
FOURTH, Format and re-install the operating system. Return your backups as needed.

How to get pass blocked web sites


If you are referring to getting past blocked websites at school or work then you need to use a proxy. This website will take you to a list of free proxies. I have put a list on here for you as well. Just go to the proxy website and enter the website you want to visit. Press enter and it's all done :)

Cant sign in to yahoo messenger


I believe this problem is caused by a proxy error.  Does Internet Explorer connect to the Internet OK? Do you or your network provider use a proxy? Or a local proxy program such as Privoxy? If no, make sure that Yahoo is set to connect "Firewall with no proxies".  If yes, set Yahoo Messenger to use HTTP proxies.

Check internet explorer connections to see if you have configured IE to connect to the internet with a proxy.Usually if IE is configured to use a proxy,it affects firefox too.
