Preferred Solution: can't accessing websites

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: can't accessing websites

Lets start with the basics

Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite Win2K and XP only
Install ewido.
During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck both "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
Launch ewido
It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
On the left side of the main screen click update
Click on Start and let it update.
DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.
You might print the next part out to use in safe mode.

Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:

Run Ewido:
Click on scanner
Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
Save the report to your C: Drive
This will take some time to run!
Boot to normal mode
Post that log and a HiJack log. Let me know if you need help with the hijack this app...doc

So about a few weeks ago (not exactly sure when it started) my computer stopped allowing me to access certain websites. It started out with only a few, but now it is almost 50-80% not connecting. I do not think it is a problem with my browser. I typically use Firefox, but IE will connect to the same ones Firefox allows, and will also not connect to the same websites Firefox will not allow.

I have searched these forums for a couple of hours now and nothing seems to fit my exact problem, and I am hesitant to use the solutions from other forums because it might further hurt my system. I am not tech-savvy/computer literate to say the least, and I would need a thorough walk-through on how to diagnose the problem, as well as how to fix it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Unable to connect to most websites -- not a browser problem

How are you not allowed to view the website? Does the page show "The page cannot be displayed"? or you are not authorized or something else?

Try running cmd.exe, type "ipconfig /flushdns" without quotes.

I have joined a computer (PC1) to a domain control server (2008), and user able to login using their domain user account - although recently I have found out that even though the computer (PC1) do not connect to a server, user still able to access using their domain account.
Is there a way for me to restrict domain account user from accessing the computer (PC1) if they are disconnected from server?
Hope my explanation make sense to you guyz.

Thank in advance

A:Prevening domain user from accessing Computer

Lots to be considered. Joining a domain is intended to give the company admin configuration control of all the company users.
This is normal, expected and even proper for the company to do this.

restrict domain account userClick to expand...

hmm; only the company admin should be able to do this and almost always it is done using some scripts, NOT by loggin into your PC. So - - who is accessing your PC remotely, the admin - - how do you know this occurs?

PCs joined to a domain usually get a replacement for PC Login - - the network form and that creates a link to the domain controller.

A:Problem In accessing micro SD

Connect you card to your machine. Then go to command prompt (run->cmd->enter) and enter this command; chkdsk /f X:
Replace the name of your card drive with X in above command.
If this helped, so OK, if not, try recover your data, using a good recover tool, and then discard that sd card!

I have been trying to block access to proxy sites without success. What I have done works on some but not all.

I've used a program called Internet Lock to block the port 443, but still I can access the proxy site.

I've put the name of the domain in the list of block sites, still it passes.

I tried to find out the IP address of the website, but I can't find it. Don't know if that would even work anyway.

One proxy site in particular seems to bypass all locks.

If anyone knows how to block such sites, without losing access to gmail, yahoo mail, hotmail, it would greatly be appreciated.



A:How do I block https(SSL) websites?

I think will also bypass your locks. You can check its IP address using ping or nslookup. You can also block its ip address using your host file.

Can anyone please help with this problem as it's driving me nuts. I am getting the DNS error when I try to go to certain websites ie. I've been in contact with my ISP but they don't seem to know how to fix the problem. My system consists of: WinXP Pro sp3, D-Link 2640R Router, wired connection. I'd be grateful any help. Thank you....


I have managed to resolve this issue myself....

A:DNS error on random websites

Hmm, w/o more info, an inability to access common sites like "eBay" suggests your "Network Adapter" (not hardware, but a MS Networking driver) is corrupted. A number of things can cause this, but "AdWare" is the most common culprit. The problem has always been far too common with XP (and earlier). Much less of a problem since Vista/W7 made changes to those essential services far more unlikely.

If you can, I suggest you try connecting another PC to the same internet connection and see what you get. Or, if you're computer savvy enough, I recommend downloading a free copy of Ubuntu Linux and connecting to the Internet with the "Live CD" (a way to test the OS w/o installing it.) Both methods will rule out an issue with your ISP.

I have a Dell desktop with wifi. It can see the AP (very strong signal), but it cannot access the internet ("limited conductivity"). I tried cycling power on the modem and AP which helped temporarily. Reboot does nothing. There are 3 other notebooks that have full access to the internet thru wifi to the same AP and cable modem.

The Dell has Vista op sys, and I've run thru all the diagnostics with no real solution. This pc normally uses a wired connection with no problem.

What should I look at to get this going?

- There appears to be a firewall at <ip address> (hop 1) that blocks unwanted TCP packets.

Both my windows xp and my ubuntu box have the same problem, so it's not a hosts file issue or a system based blocking software. Might be my router?

Neither I nor my friend can access his website. We share a connection. I have checked with a host and they made sure that the firewall rules were reset and the firewall itself was restarted. we can get to the site through proxies, but when accessing from either computer the error "The server at is taking too long to respond." pops-up. I tried disconnecting the router and connecting straight through the modem ( cable modem through Shaw) still to no avail.
I know it isn't the server where the site is so I am thinking that there must be something wrong on my end.

No, you can't do what you are asking.

Does your Toshiba have an optical drive? If so you'd only need to buy an adapter/enclosure for the zip and floppy, but really I think it probably would cost the same just to buy ones that are already external rather than something to turn your internals to externals.

I have been using a Eminent Network Media Tank with a built-in WD 1TB hard drive that is FAT32 for some time now. As I have some new content I want to add to it I connected it to my notebook. I installed the drivers from the Eminent CD to make windows recognize the drive (a program called IFS drives was installed into the configuration screen). In the my computer screen I can now see the drive with the disk letter I appointed to it (Z) but when I try to open the drive windows says: "Dirve Z is not formatted, do you want to format the drive now?". Evidently I don't want to format the drive, I just want to access it and add new data. Does anyone know why windows says this and (more importantly) how I can achieve my goal without formatting?

I've found several posts on this subject, but the thread was closed to comment.
I tried the dll installs that were meticulously typed into the posts, but it did not
fix the problem. (I had an error in one of them, so perhaps it was this
that prevented access to secure websites-- email, etc.)

I reinstalled Windows SP3 updates and it fixed the problem.

I've found it useful to have a saved copy of SP1, SP2, SP3 on a memory stick
if ever I need to reinstall XP or if files become corrupted.

I'm having a strange problem with my main computer. I can log onto AOL and read my e-mail, but I can't open websites. I get a "navigation to the webpage was canceled" message. I've tried various remedies but nothing has worked. The connection is fine, the hardware is fine. I did recently discover a quirk, however...if I go to a saved link to a login page requesting a password, it not only opens that page, it allows me to continue to use that site once I've entered the password. I only have two such links, so there are two sites I can still access.

Any suggestions? I'd rather not have to wipe the thing and start over... Thanks!

XP operating system, protected disk area . . .

I want to access files in the XP NTFS System (Protected Area). If I do a "Restore" for any reason, I get everything in the factory-supplied partition, which is a nuisance. Periodically, all I want to do is go into the protected area for a file or two. I do not need a whole lot of junk that I will subsequently delete once the "Restore" is completed (such as "Try & Buy", eg, Corel, etc.). The so-called "options" restore menu is ridiculously small and hasn't anything worth restoring from it. I need a comprehensive list of stuff in the 10gig partition. I have an 80gig drive, 10 gigs used for the system itself. Can I use a function to at least do a "copy & paste" from this area?

I have tried 2 different usb wireless adapters on my desktop to "associate" with my westell model 327W router connected (& functioning (from verizon dsl) to my laptop & the ssid is detected correctly but the MAC does not match the router's MAC! Both of the adapters I've tried (NETGEAR & Linksys) detect the same MAC. Again, the ssid matches my routers' but the MAC is incorrect (according to the bottom of the router). What can I do? Argh!

Thanks in advance for any insight!

A:Accessing router from usb wireless adapter-ssid detected correctly but MAC incorrect

If you're report is correct, then likely that you are discovering a nearby neighbor's router with the same ssid.

you should use a wire connect, access the router and change the ssid to something

Recently my computer has been having random issues when trying to go to websites. I can game online just fine without a hitch, yet when I try to go to it takes about 5 minutes for the page to come up (sometimes it times out). I do have a firewall, yet when I disable it, I'm still getting the same issue. The issue is usually resolved immediately upon restarting my computer, but it returns after the it's been on for a while.

This is for my directly connected computer, but I also have a laptop (wireless). The laptop has no issues with connecting to websites.

I previously had issues with my computer connecting to .com sites, but it would connect to .edu sites perfectly fine. I was instructed to get a new hosts file. I do not know if the issues are related.

Any input on the issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,

I have an oldish PC (circa 2000) which has died.

It ran Windows ME. The HDD is Seagate. [40GB Seagate St340823A]

I am wondering if I can salvage the HDD, at least to the extent of recovering some data from it.

I realise that one way would be to take another PC, and to add the drive in there.

But I was wondering if it is possible to buy an external hard drive and to use that instead.

Ideally, I'd like to know if there are any which come with spare space which can be easily used.

But failing that, how easy would it be to take the HDD out of an external drive, then temporarily insert the HDD from the old PC (so as to retrieve data) and then put the external drive back to its original condition?

A:Problem accessing file on Integral 128Mb Flash Drive

I would treat the flash drive as suspect from here on in. Take it back to the machine where you saved it to the drive and open it there - if you can do this it may only have been a permissions issue but if you can, try another drive. You might recover the drive with a format once you have your file safe.

I have a Belkin wireless router, l have 2 PC's connected to it and both cant get into selected sites - UK lottery being just one of many

Can anyone tell me if there are any settings in the router that can be altered to allow access to sites that l cant currently get in to

Both PC's worked fine before going wireless now both have the same problem - I have set IE settings to the minimum on everything but it makes no difference so l am assuming it has something to do with the router settings

Thanks in advance

A:Problem Accessing Some Sites Via Belkin

Can you check that you definitely have a connection by going to another site that you have never visited before? Sometimes it can seem like the connection is working, when actually its just getting the pages from your cache. (Although, if you posted that message from one of the PC's then you definitely have a connection).

If you are definitely connected, but you can't see some specific sites, I would struggle to help. If you don't have any software that might be interfering (pop up blockers / firewall / virus / spyware / adware / cookie blocker / any software that basically blocks a site if it doesn't like something about it), then its most likely a setting in the router. I once had that issue and someone fixed it for me, but I forgot what its called... If I remember, I'll post back.

A:accessing NT 4 server in a 2003 Domain

Try demoting the NT4 server so it is no longer a DC and integrating it through DNS into your network.

Because your NT4 server is PDC, there is alot to do in order to keep the NT4 server as a DC and integrate it into a Server 2003 Schema AD network.
It is really not worth doing to be honest! Your NT4 server should run fine as a server, but not as a DC within your Server 2003 environment.

In the past I have had similar problems because I did not choose a private network address for my ethernet - what is the ethernet address used in you router - you can find out by typing "ipconfig" at the dos prompt when your laptop is connected to the modem/router by the ethernet cable

you may need to get an ide adapter and run it from the ide cable to read as a reg HDD.

I have a compaq presario 3015ca. for specifications

The model was shipped with 512MB/PC266 (2-DIMM) upgradable up to 1024 (2 X 512 MB DIMM).

Now this is the question. How do i choose the right ram? I understand that laptop ram is incompatible with desktop. (why?) So I assume there would be laptop ram! is there? For example a local shop has a huge selection of different ram speeds and types. Which should i choose? Are all the speeds compatable with the system. So if my system was shipped with pc266 can I upgrade to 333Mhz? And what is 144pin ram? etc etc.

Since there have been many threads on the issue of RAM are there any helpful website which you could suggest. (My google search came up with more confusion than solutions).


any help with be appreciated.

Does anyone know of any websites that has BIOS files so you can make a 5900 to 5900 Ultra? Or is this possible? I know of the one for ATI cards here:

Are there or is is possible for Nvidia softmods too? I was wondering because I am thinking about getting a 9800 or 5900 depending on whether or not there is a website that has Nvidia softmodding like the one above

A:Nvidia BIOS Websites????

AFAIK you just flash your card with an Ultra BIOS and beg that it still works.

Read this thread if you need some reassurance.

There are some generic vid card BIOS flashing threads there too. I suggest you read those before doing anything.

Hello, I've been playing dvd's on my portable player and have always wondered how to get to games and other special features using a dvd rom drive. I've recently gotten a laptop with a combo cdrw/dvdrom drive and I popped the dvd in, went to special features. . . and nothing. . Is there any special software I need to access the special features requiring a computer dvdrom drive. . or am I missing something?

I am using Windows 8 64-bit and I am having an issue loading certain websites. Twitter and Facebook are the main two. I have tried Chrome, Firefox, IE, Chrome portable, Firefox portable and qupzilla portable. I tried using https as well. loads but once I enter my login details it just comes up with "problem loading page" again. I have run Malwarebytes and SUPERantispyware I have cleared cache's etc and nothing seems to be helping. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm almost at my wits end with it.
I should add I've reset my router, restored factory settings but they seem to work on other devices (android phone, old laptop etc).

Check and make sure that time/date settings were accurate in your computer. If the problem still persists, try uninstalling Firefox/Chrome and install it back again.

This has been driving me crazy. SO in any of the 4 browsers I have installed (IE 8, Firefox, Chrome and safari) I ocassionally cannot navigate to certain websites. Off the top of my head, some of these include;
Toshiba's website (
Hewlett packard's website (
downloads from logitech (various)
a radio station I sometimes listen too (
and the download portion of apple's website

I booted into safe mode with networking, it works fine

I used the norton removal tool to remove NIS 2011, stopped any and all security software in msconfig, reset my browser settings, cleared my browser's cache... nothing works out of safe mode. Any ideas?

Oh and I also ran a triple pass low level format and reinstalled windows 7.... for those that would suggest recovery

A:Some websites (mostly downloads) will not load

I think you need to use the proxy server to help loading, some websites only can be opened under the state of proxy server entry.

I just wanted to know, if there are any program/addon to browser, that could use sandbox and wouldn't let files from infected sites come to computer.

A:Websites sandbox

the Sandbox concept is already available in several browers.
However, the idea of the sandbox is not to control what gets downloaded,
but rather to control the permissions of the browser and the location of downloads
such that regardless of what arrives, no damage should occur.

What i'm after is a program that will download an entire website from the internet, so i can save it for offline browsing, printing and such. Finding and loading every webpage from a website, then saving it is a long and slow process - so i wondered if there was a program to do all this for me...

For example, if i wanted to download TechSpot's website, i could enter "" then every page inside the website would be saved.

I've had a look at Internet Explorer's version, but i think its crap, and it doesn't work well...

A:Accessing printer on different subnetwork

This is a VPN issue. BY DESIGN, the VPN will take over the default route and send everything (browser, email and share access) to the remote VPN server.

This is done to protect the VPN server environment from the local host being accessed via one of it's shares or other NIC card.

Hello all,
I am new to this site, so please forgive any rookie mistakes. I recently bought a new computer to upgrade from my old one. The old computer then proceeded to completely break on me. I took out the old computer's hard drive and then installed it as a slave in the new computer. Now I am trying to access my files in it. The problem is that the folder I need to get into is the user profile folder in Documents and Settings (I have Windows XP) which says access is denied. Is there a way I can open it and get around whatever type of protection is on the folder? Thanks.

I would like to block individual websites, is there any free software/utility or means of doing this? Thanks

A:How can i block individual websites

all kinds of techniques, depending upon the volume (number) and or content.

If you have a router, you may be able to block URLs that contain specific keywords
(eg porno term ) which would block man urls with each keyword

if you have just a few sites and want to kill access to all content from them, add to your hosts file (ask and I can provide details)

if you need to bock a specific url from a site and allow all others, you can add it to
your Block list in the browser.

If you're concerned for the kids, then google for NetNanny

more details please .......
