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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: What browser to use!!!!

Hmm... I've been using Chrome for a year or two now and I'm not having any problems. I use it on both my 32 and 64-bit W7 systems as well as my XP box. The only issue I have is with one of my bank sites not being compatible with Chrome. If it weren't for that I'd stay with only Chrome. I occasionally go play with the other browsers to see if there's anything that draws me away but I'm always drawn back to the simple and FAST front-end that Chrome presents.

However ... the next best one that I've seen is Firefox. It's a superior browser. Give it a look.

You will run into many opinions on this. It's the same deal as programmers and their editors... it becomes very religious!

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.
Thanks
 

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.

About two days ago I started getting popping and crackling noises from my laptop speakers while playing any kind of in-browser video. It's not a hardware thing, because anything run outside the browser (CDs, iTunes, VLC, DVDs, etc.) sounds just fine. Tested in both Firefox and Safari, both have the popping/crackling problem, so it's not something with one browser.

I have tech support for this computer (Dell business model, Latitude E6500 w/XP), they tried updating sound card drivers, updating BIOS and uninstalling and reinstalling sound card. The last thing actually fixed it, until I started up my PC tonight, now the problem is back again. Anyone have suggestions for me? I really, really don't want to do a restore, because I've just spent the last four hours installing a game that I would then lose. If that's the only option, though...

Don't seem to have any issues with connectivity, or lag that I can detect.
 

A:Speaker noise only in browser

Uninstall and Reinstall Adobe Flash Player, in-browser video's use Adobe Flash player and since it is browser only related this may indicate there's an issue with Flash/the codecs for flash.. Just do a reinstall, post back with if it worked.

Greetings Let me start by saying that what I am about to describe is NOT a malware virus problem It does involve a browser being redirected to the wrong website but we have checked repeatedly and to the best of our abilities we have ruled out malware or viruses Windows desktop Internet access is through ethernet wired redirect browser/website a -- challenge/mystery Got through a router that also provides wireless access to other devices in the house What we have is a single computer in the house out of desktops laptop and tablet that cannot reach a single specific website an SMF forum using Internet Explorer or Chrome It CAN get there using the AOL browser What happens with Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect IE and Chrome is that the browsers are redirected to another non-malicious as far as we can tell website that resides at the same Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect webhosting service as the website we are trying to reach Tracerts and Pings go to the correct site Other users as in people all over the country can reach the correct site Other computers in the same household go to the correct site using both wired and wireless access This appears to be a very computer-specific problem It does not seem to be an IP problem because the other computers in the house are not encountering it and it is not a website or network problem because no one else is running into the problem Any thoughts The only other piece of information that seems pertinent is that back in July this same computer suddenly could not reach the quot target quot website at all no matter what browser was being used All browsers would stall and time out or give a quot website can not be found quot type of message Tracerts and pings failed completely The tracerts said that the website could not be resolved and never generated even a single hop At the time we consulted a number of people and the only explanation that seemed like it might have merit is that it might have something to do with the MAC address Someone else suggested that it had to do with TCP IP settings We never got it fixed The problem just half-corrected itself about two weeks ago and then went sideways to the current situation What s different between IE amp Chrome versus the AOL browser that could explain this If you have an idea please use dummy talk I m fairly good with computers but networking and IP protocols baffle me Thanks Macgyver nbsp

A:Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect

Login as a Admin on that system.
Get a command prompt and enter these two commands:
ipconfig /flushdns​net stop "dns client"​quit the browser and restart it. Now access a good site (aka this one) and then a site you are having issues with.

What's the results?

Problem:
- slow page load (if any!) - tested on default browser, chrome, opera, opera mini, etc etc
- no reaction for stopping loading pages


Thoughts:

- other android devices working well on that hotspot
- Google Play working well on tablet, no lags, no interference (same other online soft - skype etc)
- tried system restore, default settings, changing router settings


Techspot is my last hope. Help me!

Hi I recently bought a blackberry phone (at&t) and unlocked it in jamaica (to use all networks) but even with my plan on it says "your device does not currently have any browser configuration service book"
and that I'm to check with my service provider to enable the browser.
Digicel (service provider) has sent this over 15 times and still no success I cant get on to the browser at all to select options or got o or so forth.

It's a bold 9000 and I've checked the time, did battery pulls, wipe the phone, update the OS to version 5 and still no success.

I can use BBM on my plan and check emails so the plan works and opera mini works on wifi but not on plan, the browser doesn't work at all.

I recently installed Sound Forge Pro 10 onto my computer that uses Realtek HD Audio.

In its Options I can select - Microsoft Sound Mapper, Direct Sound Surround Mapper, Windows Classic Wave Driver and ASIO4ALL V2.

From the Realtek Manager I can select and record from - Microphone, Line In and Aux but there is no way I can select the output directly from the sound card. e.g. what is playing on my web browser. There is only silence.

Am I missing something or is this not possible with Realtek HD Audio Manager?
 

A:Realtek HD Audio not recording sound from browser

I think you are referring to the 'Stereo Mix' audio device.

Try this:

Control Panel > Sound
go to the 'Recording' tab
Where it lists the recording devices, right click in an open area and make sure that "show disabled devices" is checked, and see if Stereo Mix pops up.

If it does, then right-click > Enable, and select that as device to record from.
If it does NOT, I'm both surprised and sorry to say that I can't help you with that.

Note: Stereo mix is the COMPLETE output of your computer, so that includes things like Skype, beeps, pings, Media Player and so on.

A:Excellent wireless connection, but can't access Internet in browser

i'm not sure but this is what i would try:

Make sure wireless is turned on, on the laptop as some have a switch specifically for that.
Make sure that you do not have a third part wireless network connection program running.
From start, settings, click network connections. right click you're wireless connection and select properties, click the wireless networks tab, make sure the box is checked where it says "use windows to configure...". then below that click and remove all the preferred networks that are there. then click okay and attempt to reconnect to the network via searching for available networks and double clicking your desired network.

I've tried entering the ip, I get to the password, I have the computer name right, but I can't get the password to work. The password is stored on all the computers, but I don't know how to access it. Not going to just reset the password because then I'll probably have to redo the router settings. The same password that worked for Wii and 360 does not work on the computers. In the connection properties, the password is only displayed as 8 symbols, which is less than the password that worked normally.
 

A:Cannot access router through browser

Sorry but you will have to reset the router to its default settings. Write down your passwords and store them in a drawer from now on. Rerun the routers setup software. It is not that difficult to do

About 10 mins ago, looking at web pages, etc everything was moving really slow, like a sluggish feeling. But after playing a game for about 5 mins, i exit the game and back online again and everything is moving fast.

So what was causing the sluggish?
 

A:Sluggish in web browser

Other than being a problem with your ISP, the slowness could be caused by other programs running in the background or you have too many things loaded in your startup folder. Is your computer free of viruses and other malware? Do you keep current with all the MS updates?

This is one of those too many irons in the fire stories. I switch from DSL to Clearwire. In addition I brought another computer up. All the computers are running Windows 2000 Pro. Getting the Clearwire WiFi up was no problem. Getting all the computers to see each other in a workgroup is. The problem is "The server list for the workgroup is not available". I can work around that by either putting in the IP addresses for the Zoom ADSL X5 switch/router, or unplugging the patch cables and plugging them back in, and all the computers will see each other. Then I can't get to the web with any of the computers. My thought is since I'm not using the DSL on the switch. I need another switch with a dedicated port for the WiFi modem. Any recommendation?

Thanks,
Larry
 

A:Win2K browser service and Wi-Fi

First, be sure every system can ping ALL of the others using the IP-addresses; this proves TCP to be running correctly.

Second, make sure each system is using the same gateway address;
get a command prompt and enter
ipconfig /all
​If this is correct, then each should be able to ping www . google . com and the browsers should work

Next, make sure all systems are using the same WORKGROUP name

Hello everyone.
My sisters got a problem with her laptop, which is that it can't connect to the browsers.
It can find wireless networks just fine, it can log on MSN just fine also. It can also download updates from the Windows Update utility.
However, it can't connect to the browsers. Both IE7 and Firefox.
No, it's not set to "Work Offline." No, it's not using a proxy server, if I go to IE7 settings.
I also checked for spyware, there was nothing.
The problem seemed to occure just suddenly.. weird yeah.
It's an Acer Aspire 5310, using Vista Basic 32 bit.
The wireless netcard is an Atheros AR5007EG.

I ned to find out whether it is my CPU, another component, or HDD ???

When I bring up a browser, IE6, Firefox, Flock, my system becomes quite unresponsive, with CPU Uage History staying at 100% for quite a while, while I do nothing. If I type something within a browser, it stops for a while after 8-10 characters, then brings out the rest in spurts.
This started a few weeks ago with Firefox2. Then I downloaded Flock and it worked fine for a while, as did IE6. Since last week, all browsers have the same problem

My system is a Dell 4100, PentiumIII, 1 GHz, 512 memory, lots of HDD space.

I have no problems with Eudora (E-mail) or any other appllcations. E-mail still works., as does typing and send/receive.

Any diagnostics would be welcome. E-mail me to [email protected], since I have problems using my browsers.


Thanks for any help.

Well is your sound working otherwise ? Can you play a mp3,

Chances are your using onboard audio device, which means youll need to download the latest motherboard drivers for your chipset, This will include the sound driver,,,,

When you formated did you do a quick format or a full one, because a quick one wont get rid of viruses only a full one will do that, and second GET A FIREWALL INSTALLED, Zonealarm is a good one and the basic version is free.

I just recently purchased Logitech X-530 5.1 surround sound speakers, and can now utilize my SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 card. It sounds great with games and CD's, but only if my browser is off. Online radio has loud 'fart' buzzing sounds, and if I browse with a CD playing, the same sound comes out every few minutes. Is this a Browser conflict?

A:Browser trouble. Connectivity issue?

I get the feeling its probably a DNS issue.

You can try setting your DNS servers manually.
I often use Verizon's core DNS servers myself, here are the IPs
4.2.2.1
4.2.2.2
4.2.2.3
4.2.2.4

The best way to check for a dns issue, is to open a command window (Start menu -> Run -> cmd <enter>)
Then try pinging a domain name.
ping www.penny-arcade.com

If you get a message saying unknown host, then your DNS isn't working properly or you typed the domain name wrong.

If you get an IP address and replies, then your DNS is fine.

A:Browser pictures blurred - ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility

gvaman said:



I recently upgraded to the latest driver for my IBM T41 laptop's ATI Radeon 9000 video card to the latest version (specific IBM driver). Shortly after, all pictures loaded in my browser (IE 6 with all latest patches) appeared blurred/pixelized. Tried to change all sort of settings, revert to previous driver, reinstall, but nothing improved.

Then thought it may be a virus (have Symantec anti-virus & firewall) and did find a Trojan (fvp.dll) which I removed. The system was then clean, but still couldn't improve the situation. Tried installing Firefox, but same problem in that browser.

I don't think it's a video card issue however, as if I browse for pictures in the Windows Explorer, they display correctly. I can even do "Open with" - Internet Explorer on a file and the image displays correctly in IE (but when I do this, the system then becomes very slow/instable).

Any ideas - please help !!!Click to expand...


So to clarify, this is an IE problem with pictures, not a general graininess problem, right? A thought is to try and install the latest AOL browser beta because it flushes out a bunch of settings that IE6 makes. Or, you could just use Firefox and forget that IE exists....

Hi

Win2K Pro.

I'm using a Nokia M1122 router to provide access from my local subnet to the internet.

I can ping each node on my subnet and the router and I can ping outside the subnet ie beyond the router.

Using either IE or Mozilla I can connect to the router admin page, but nothing beyond it.

That is - I can ping beyond my router, but can't access any URL beyond my router using a browser.

What are the next things I can test?

Mark
 

A:can't use browser beyond subnet

You need to set up the WAN part of your router, with the IP-address and DNS-servers your ISP has given you.
In the LAN part of your router you either activate DHCP to give local IP-addresses to your clients (PC's) and set your PC's to automatically obtain IP and DNS (in your network-settings), or
you disable DHCP and use the fixed IP-addresses of your current setup.

If you need more info, tell us how your network is currently set up.

Hello.
I used to be an Opera user until I got ultimately fed up with it. So I looked around and came across Yandex and settled with it. Are there other people having experience with it? Yandex barely shows up anywhere on the internet.

Oh and how would it fare in comparission to Firefox? It being Gecko and Yandex being Chromium based was a difference for me in transitioning as Yandex feels familiar and was able to import Opera settigns and Extensions and Speed dial and Bookmarks (srsly Opera whatwere you thinking when you scratched Bookmarks for a long while?! The same with the huge enforced Google search bar above my speed dial probably).

I only do casual browsing. Nothing too complicated or advanced.

A:Need to run JavaScript on a different port for web browser

you are correct; it is accessing port 1025 on the local loopback ip address.

a) the real Internet website can not be accessed this way and would require a PROXY
on your local PC to make it work. Sometimes an A/V product does this; my Avast! uses
127.0.0.1 for scanning Weblinks and Email.

b) port 1025 should not be open to the Internet;
google 'port 1025' for comments.

you say the school has a page with something like this - - ask the Teacher or the Teacher Assistant.

You might also ensure that you are not using a PROXY by mistake in your browser settingsTools->Options->Click Advanced
Click Network Tab->Settings Button
click No Proxy

Okay... so I recently (at the recommendation of a friend) installed Opera to try it out.

Well I like the browser just fine so far, but there's one problem: The scrolling feature on my touchpad just DOES NOT WORK at all in Opera.

Why?


So far, the following has been suggested:

Someone said "update the driver."
Well may I ask then: FROM WHERE? WHAT DRIVER UPDATE?
The only driver in existence (which I don't even know where I got it...) is the one I have.
It's an Alps touchpad apparently, and I'm running Windows 7 64-bit.

A:Moving bookmarks over to new browser

Depends on what you were using before. For strange reasons, the bookmarks are in hidden locations with most browsers. The easiest thing is to have Opera do it. So that is where I would direct my first request.

Otherwise, you may have to use a free download you can find with a Gurgle search to move them over.
This help often comes at a cost, as there are few good systems that are free... but using a software programs is often a more quick and satisfactory solution that stumbling around doing it yourself.

Currently trying out Qupzilla, it is webkit based, but has a FFx look, has adblocking & Flash blocking by default, and a speed-dial screen which can be homepage if you like or can open speeddial screen in a new tab. It's simple but does most of what I want.

This past week I thought I'd try it again to see if it was any better & I was surprised to see it was as if I never uninstalled it.
Knowing Safari Browser is an apple browser, I started snooping around on my pc & saw a folder called Apple Software update. Question #1 is it necessary to have that folder & 2ndly is that why I can't completely uninstall Safari?
It doesn't help to do a search for Safari because I have tunes on here with that in the name.

A:Computer wants to run so slow, especially in browser and typing

You are rightly concerned about malware infection so you need to start running scans to check this out. Which security programs are installed and have you run full system scans? SAS anti spyware and Malwarebytes are good free scanners worth downloading and running. This is a priority because the sooner you are onto malware and virus problems the better the chance of removing them.

I don't share your enthusiasm for Tune up Utilities and would uninstall it but you've probably paid a hefty subscription for the year. CCleaner is a useful free utility worth looking into but firstly check thoroughly for possible infection.

Hi,

I have a very strange problem. I cannot type URL/adress/location bar or text boxes - keyboard locks/freezes up. I have to go to the Task Manager to End Task (to close browser:Firefox, Google Chrome)
I restored my OS from my previous Norton Ghost image, but nothing changed.

P.S.
OS Win7x64
 

A:I cannot type in the browser

Does the keyboard work normally in other applications ? I.e. not browsers. Try notepad for instance. If this problem is only in browsers, it is virtually certain to be a virus effect. It could be an add-on you have installed common to both (all?) browsers. If you realise what you have added, then uninstalling that add-on might solve it, but the chances are small.

In firefox, click the Tools menu and select add-ons.

There is a tiny possibility that your keyboard has a fault. Test by replacement if at all possible, and especially with a different type of keyboard connection (wireless, USB, PS/2)

I recently subscribed to Netflix and I am having problems with their internet browser UI. Problems that their rather incompetent tech support staff cannot seem to fix.

The dropdown menus in the Netflix video browser do not work. Since this is the only way available to switch between different seasons of a television series, I can only stream videos from season 1 of any given series. Oddly enough this is only a problem while I am logged into Netflix, when I am logged out, the dropdown menus actually work (but the season resets when I logged in, so no picking a season while I am logged out and then logging into to stream a given season).

Is their anyone here familiar with how Netflix behaves with PC internet browsers who understands this particular problem and can help me?

Like so many "evaluations" of products, it depends upon two major factors:

WHO paid for the study?
WHAT was the criteria used for the evaluation?
Regardless of this, I have grave reservations against all forms of IE due to the implementation of ActiveX.
This component violates the original design from the W3C where the browser should not have access to system components UNLESS signed. Clearly MS uses ActiveX to perform the MS Updates which can modify anything.
That alone ought to give you NIGHTMARES.

I have problems using any kind of Internet Browser(IE, Firefox) on Windows Vista.

When I open Firefox, the default page works fine. But when I try to open another page, the Firefox stop working.
In IE, it stops working as soon as I open.

I've tried to uninstall/ reinstall both Firefox and IE but the problems still exist.
Then I tried to disable my Windows Firewall(I do not have any other firewall or anti-virus software programs installed) but there still got the problem.

When I ping the website and my router, i got the reply.
Other computers at home are working fine.

So is there any solution to the problem I face? I would be much appreciated if you could guide what should I do to solve that problem because my knowledge to the computers is very basic.

Thank you guys.
 

A:Problem using any Internet Browser

Sounds like something has change in your system profile. You can do a few things?

1. Backup all your cookies, desktop icons, and favorites to another location or zip drive
2. Go into the safe mode and create another Admin name. Once you do that log out and then back in with the new name. Now go an delete your current profile. Doing this will fix the issues you have with the browsers. You might have to install some third-party software that disappears in your all programs menu. Other than that Windows will rebuild your profiled with out the junk in the prior.

The other choices are to run in safe mode Malware Cleaner or Rising AV 2009 Free International version to see if anything is cloaked on your system that's causes you these issues?

A:Browser issues

What OS are you using?
Which Browser?

I would stick with the simple internal firewall and a good av with spyware protection. Now if you use Windows 7 you just have to download MSE from Microsoft. Then you're set. I would also recommend a home router to prevent those pest who like to invade your system. If you run updates and patches daily you shouldn't have to deal with these issues. Good defense helps. PC can't do it alone. The browser of choice is Firefox with Ad Block Plus and then search for Malware list to block out those other pest from trying to envisage your browser. Spyware Blaster is good for exceptions too. The OS like Windows XP has security holes that let Malware walk right in. But those can be tighten under SRP for malware.

If one don't dump their browser history & they're online 8+ hours a day surfing, how long could it take before it affects the length of ones Security scans?
I'm not talking any specific computer, just in general.
 

A:Browser history

The browser limits the amount of data that is saved to usually 1GB at max, but a GB of tiny text files can be many tiny files which would slow down the scan in maybe, I don't know, a couple of months assuming the entire memory clump was filled with cookies.

The German computer mag PC-WELT has just concluded a comparison test of the speed of the five major browsers, using the Peacekeeper benchmark. This test awards points representing the speed with which the browser processes Java commands. The number of points gives information about the operations or frames rendered per second.

The test gives a clear picture with significant differences among the contestants. The classification results are as follows:

Rank
1 Chrome 19 (2028 points)
2 Opera (1525 pts)
3 Firefox 13 (1298 pts)
4 Safari 5 (1237 pts)
5 IE 9 (1131 pts)

Thus, clear winner with a difference is Google?s Chrome which is nearly twice as fast as the IE and Firefox. Opera occupies an honorable second place.

http://www.pcwelt.de/ratgeber/Tempo...net-6522535.html?r=161519624279188&lid=196428
 

A:Comparison test: Which is the fastest Internet browser?

I get similar results.

Chrome 210.1180.89= 3934
IE9 32 bit = 1618
IE9 64 bit = 1047

Strangely I get less performance from the 64 bit browser, Also IE9 skips a lot of the tests because they are either incompatible with or lack the codecs to run that part of the benchmark.

No idea if this would skew the results?

While awaiting solution to your problem, you can try portable versions of Firefox and/or Opera, which don?t require installation and should not come in conflict with any other apps. You can even run them from a USB flash drive and take them with you. They don?t leave personal info on the computer.

Google Chrome is the fastest browser I have used, with Opera 9 coming a close second. Then comes Firefox naturally. IE8 is on par with FF though.

Chrome is my preferred choice ATM. Opera 10 beta is also pretty fast, so I might switch to that once the final version is released.
