Hey everyone I am new to this website hopefully someone out there could help me out with my comp. is Windows XP
my son downloaded some videos in my comp behind my back n the comp caught like a virus, now Interner Explorer won't work at all I unistalled it n installed it n the comp. is still the same. I can't get online at all only with AOL I could get online but I still can't send e-mails, I can't sign in to Yahoo! I can't download Norton antivirus which I just bought n it basically sucks to be online like that the only thing I was able to download was AVG which it said that it clear the virus but he comp is the same.
I had a similiar problem. Could not get it solved by Acer or AT&T/Yahoo.
First try using Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
If that doesn't work, open your Explorer browser, go to Tools, Internet Options,Advanced, and Restore Advanced Settings.
If that doesn't work, open your Explorer browser, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Reset, and Reset.
I did these things, none of it helped me.
But this did!
Try these two things. Make carefull notes in case you want to set things back the way they were before.
1)User Agent String Utility
Go to Microsoft Help to get these downloads.
I went to:
--> Internet Options
-->Click on LAN SETTINGS
- ->Uncheck where it says use a proxy server for a LAN.....
--> Then check where it says automatically detect settings.
--> Click Okay and you should be set.
--> Restart your IE
i tried using IE8 and it was a disaster. my computer froze, I could only get out of "half" of a page, had to use control-alt-delete repeatedly to end programs, and had to re-boot often. when I tried to uninstall IE8, that was a horrible mess. finally, I was able to delete all of it including remnants of IE7. I tried to re-install IE7 and now I cannot use the tools option. sooooooo-i called microsoft and they told me I had 3 options. 1) since I was using an "oem" version of windows xp, I could buy the disc. 2) I could call "dell" and ask them for help. or 3) I could use my credit card and for a fee, microsoft would help me. I said, "i choose option #4! i'm going to mozilla firefox!" and I hung up!
I had a virus on my computer, and after I had gotten rid of it, by IE 8 wouldn't work either. Luckily, I had firefox. What I did was I went into the tools setting, advanced, and then reset. Works fine now. I just had to reinstall yahoo toolbar.
i have the same problem what can I do to help my problem is
when I go on the internet it work fine but when I have to take it off it take about 10mins to get it off because it says not responding the checking problems then I have to use task mangager to get it off help
ok ive read so many bits of USELESS advice lets be honest and tell people the truth..
nobody in there right mind should touch ANTIVIR it will ask you for money every site you use and tell you FALSE info on threats to panic you into buying it!.
you will find every1 whos gotit cant get rid of it and some people claim to no how2..
i followed all the crap advice and it realy WAS crap,,anyway I (a ametuer) not only found out how to get rid of it but found out not to download from ANY site other than microsoft/windows and maybe firefox..
most anti virus stuff is worse than any virus.
ok lets 1st deal with stubern pests like antivir,the main problem is to locate them on your computer and they will fight you every inch of the way to the recycle bin (trust me)
they seem to stop functions that you try to remove them and 1thing that defo wont get rid of antivir is the antivir uninstall tool as most FOOLS claim it does..
fight fire with fire and 1st paralise them..i did this by downloading MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENSIALS this aloan destroyed or weakend antivir I then sent it to desktop it would not go in bin till day 2 wen it was week enough to get it in followed by its freinds trend micro,norton etc/.i now only ues microsoft products use others at your peril and trial and error seem better than EXPERTS advice..goodluck
Ok, I had the same problem, my computer is running just fine, but when I try to sign on to internet explorer, the computer pauses and does absolutely nothing leaving me on my desktop where I started. I tried going to my control panel, and my computer would not let me enter or view my internet connections. After many hours of reading and playing with my lovely computer here is what worked for me:
Go to start menu, click on control panel, click on add or remove programs, search for the file named "Windows XP Service Pack 3", and remove the file. It will take a while but remove the whole file, reboot your computer and believe it or not you can sign on to the internet. Once you sign on to the internet you should go to Microsoft Updates and Install the High priority updates, reboot, go back to Microsoft Updates and once again Install the High Priority updates the second time this will include the Windows XP Service Pack 3, reinstall it, and be sure to go back to Microsoft Updates a third time, yeah I know this took me hours to do, but I can use my Internet Explorer.
What I think is happening to a lot of us is that when the computer originally went to update Windows XP Service Pack 3, somehow it never fully completed the update; leaving my computer and myself totally confused.
Good Luck, I hope this works for a lot of us lost Internet Explorer Users!!!
