Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My pc was fine until a couple of days ago when a few websites refused to open (though many respond succesfully). i got a message saying i needed to install an updated flash player. Even though I've done this, and i get a message saying that the installation has been completed successfully, when i try to open certain pages i still get a prompt telling me that i need to install an updated player! I have winows vista and at about the same tme as this problem occurring i installed Service Pack 1. Do you think this is the problem or is it a coincidence? I'd be grateful for any advice

I believe that it is a reasonably educated guess on my part to to assume coincidence in this matter. It would be nice to know what websites are refusing to open but that would depend on your descretion toward making those URLs public information. If you still believe that you have a problem with accessing some websites due to something on your system that you are not quite sure of, I would recommend a good malware cleaner such as MalwareBytes from here and SuperAntispyware from here
Both can be used in a freeware mode of operation that is just as effective as their paid for modes.
I recommend them because they have recently done an excellent job for me in a Virtumonde/Vundo infestation that was pretty much forcing to have to consider a format and re-install.
Do the scan and cleans, reboot, do another set of scan and cleans, and don't be afraid to do a third set if you feel it is necessary. If the programs detect anything they will let you know and chances are whatever Antivirus program you have on your system will start to cooperate with the anti-malware programs to help in the cleaning process.
If however the programs don't find anything, consider yourself lucky and give us more information please.

I have a refurbished Gateway T-1625 notebook that up until now has worked fine. However, a few days ago the wireless capability just stopped working. Now, when I try to connect via wireless, it says there...

If your laptop is not "on range" this problably respond to:

1) Interference problem or bad signal.
2) Bad hardware devices (cards, routers etc)

Check your wireless router (turn it off in a while and see what happen)
Check your wireless card adaptor in your computer (My PC >> right click Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network)

Let me know how it is going!

Thank you for using FIXYA!
Have a great day!

Toshiba Hard Drive Crash

if the datas aleady deleted, then you have nothing to lose. Right ?
What you need is a 2.5 to 3.5 inch IDE ribbon cable connector.
this will enable you to put the drive into an IDE slot on the PC internal motherboard ( primary/secondary )
Unless it,s already 3.5"
boot the computer, see if it recognises the drive. And format it.
then you may be able, to re-fit back into the external casing, and use as an external again.
