Q: Help with Internet problem. Downloading problem / login problem.

I have no idea if it is the same problem. First of all I am using a wireless router, I have a internal wireless thing on my laptop. And I am able to connect and all but when i went to ebay.com and tried to log in, It leads to me a page as if I am not online. So I am wondering if it is my router settings or my laptop that makes it like that. Thank you for your help.

Preferred Solution: Help with Internet problem. Downloading problem / login problem.

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

A: Help with Internet problem. Downloading problem / login problem.

This problem doesn't seem limited to Websites, I can't sign in on MSN too. Or login to anything. I am using a airlink router Model AR315W. So if anyone can help, please do. Thanks.

A:Problem when im downloading off the internet

My computer was recently infected with the AntivirusPro 2009 which I removed with Malewarebytes. Now I am having problems when I am on the internet not being able to access hyperlinks and I am having problem with installing Kapersky Internet security. It will go through the install but the wizard does not come up to perform the scan (I currently have Norton and i uninstall before running Kapersky). It may be something simple I am overlooking. Any help is appreciated.

A:Problem downloading from internet

Have you tried a System Restore from before the infection? The Virus may have disabled some needed settings that a System Restore will fix.

One of my systems at home: mobo -gigabyte p35 ds3l, with a core 2 duo 1.8 cpu, 2gigs of mushkin memory a 750 WD hard drive running win 7 x64.

Well, the problem I have is that the system is not able to download from the internet. Whatever I download, it will always stop at about 2% done and hang forever.

However, when I install winxp sp3, everything is perfect and it downloads fine.

What I have done... loaded a partition CD and deleted the drive, created a new C: drive, (done this format thing a couple of times) reinstalled the OS from my original Microsoft disk, reinstalled with the same OS from a downloaded version of win 7 x64... and x86... Clean installs. Always the same results.

I have mem-tested the memory = good
I have HD regenerator tested the HD = good

I have used on-board LAN = no difference
I have used a separate PCI LAN card = no difference
I have used a WiFi dongle = no difference
Changed RJ-45 cables = no difference

I ping the modem/router and all is good. I am able to network this computer on a home system, fine. I can ping internet sites with command prompt. I can surf the internet and load webpages, fine.

But it will not download.

I installed another browser, Firefox, and the same thing happens, no downloading.

All this is after a clean install from a newly formatted drive.

Throw me a new suggestion, please...

we are not able to access many websites with many pictures and we are also not able to download many files that are even less than 10 mb. It is not like it takes to browse or download. They just fail to load or download.

However, if we change the link speed and duplex setting of network card from default, auto, to reduced 10 mbps full duplex, we are able to browse and download, although the speed is still not up to our expectation (160 kbps).

Can someone explain why this happens? We use 1.544 mbps T1. Does above mean that the internet provider limit our internet speed and file size? If yes, is there any way to confirm this, because the internet provider denied any fault on this issue? Thanks in advance.

A:Help with internet browsing and downloading problem.

The need to avoid the auto setting on the NIC usually happens when the NIC is failing or the modem or router at the other end is old, but sometimes there seems to be no reasonable explanation for it.

Is that 160 Kbps from something like speedtest.net or from your observations of actual downloads?

Hi and welcome to TSG,

First off, are you sure your ActiveX controls are enabled?

Please do this. Click here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html to download Hijack This.

It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.

Whenever i click on any download links or click on 'save target as', there will be a message that says IE is not working, and IE will restart on its own. This makes me unable to download any files at all(save picture as still works though). I'v tried system restore and system restore says that it could not be completed. I think that most probably this is caused by the unsucessful uninstallation of a download manager program called 'Gigaget' which was terminated halfway. Although i have uninstalled it, the option'Download by Gigaget' still exist when i right click on any link. It seems that everything else is well for the computer. Could this be a problem with the unsucess uninstallation or a virus or something else. Please redirected me if i posted in the wrong section as i don't really know what is causing this problem.Thanks.

Good morning I am having trouble downloading absolutely any files through my Internet Explorer browser after very foolishly uninstalling my Firefox (favourite browser with all my favourite web pages sotred) browser and now I have a major problem, because I can only use this browser to download Firefox again and it simply won't download anything!

This is the error message I get, you probably recognize it?

"Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded"

Now before you all tell me to alter the settings in Internet options, I have altered everything in there to lowest security and made sure the box which refers to allowing downloads to work is checked and still I get nothing downloading. So quite annoying!

I am wondering is there a way of changing registry keys o fix this problem or am I stuck here in Internet Explorer for eternity?

Thanks in advance,

Having connected my Win7 laptop to my phone via bluetooth I saw a yellow bar across the top beneath the menu bar in either 'Devices and Printers' or 'Bluetooth Devices'.

The bar read about connecting to the internet to gain more information about my devices and I didn't want this at first, so chose the option not to.

Now that I do, is there a way of doing this manually?

Hey folks. It's me again. Never managed to get the Nvidia firewall uninstalled. But it's doing better. Not sure why. BUT, I have a problem when I try to download most files off of the internet. I suspect it's my Nic and that I have to update it, but I'm not sure. Whenever I download a file (like Winamp or realplayer for example), it gives me an error stating:

"The Installer you are trying to use is corrupted or incomplete.
This could be the result of a damaged disk, a failed download or a virus.

You may want to contact the author of this installer to obtain a new copy.

It may be possible to skip this check using the /NCRC command line switch (NOT RECCOMMENDED). "

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I have recently had to reinstall Windows and am in the process of reloading my software.

I have downloaded Internet Explorer 8 from the Microsoft website but when I go to home pages previously set up by me I cannot access the secure areas as they do not recognise my user ID and password.

Sounds to me as if Java runtime environment ( as opposed to javascript) is not loaded on your new machine.

You could just keep the page that is trying to load the applet open until it defaults to a download page, or possibly get the download here.

Not sure my login problem has to do with IE 11, but I'll start here.

2 months ago I was able to log into eBay on my desktop. I went on vacay for 3 weeks and when I came back, I wasn't able to log in any longer. I checked eBay to make sure I had the correct user name (and I did) and then changed my password. Still no login. Changed my password, again, 4 more times over a couple days, but still no login.

However, I AM able to log into eBay on my laptop (HP Pavilion, OS Windows 8.1, IE11, AMD A6, 4gbs Ram, 64-bit). What's happening here? Could it be the browser?

If not, what do you suppose is going on here?

I have since a cupple of days the following problems with my computer:

When i boot it up and the windows password shreen comes, i cant log in because the part of the logon screen with the username, password field, password hint etc. is missing.... here a screen shot of it (yea, its in german...guesse were I am from!):

So I logged in by pressing ctr+alt+delete twice. I used the username that was in the loginbox and since I don't even have a windows password (!), I just lett the passwordfield free and I could log in without problems. later I noticed that the account I loged in to has not admin rights but is only an visitor account. Unfortunately I dont remember what my login name is since you dont have to type it in on regular bases in windows xp.

After that I tried to boot up the computer in safe moode to get to the account "administrator" which is without password. But my safemoode seems not to be working too! I just used it several days ago and everything was ok. But now, when i boot it up in safemoode the computer turns itself of right before the loogin schreen comes!

I did several things with my computer right before I had these problems that could in my oppinion possibly have something to do with my problems.

I am operating Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 3. I have Internet Explorer 8. I was able to login to different sites until a automatic Java update about two weeks ago. Now when I try to login or search various sites(ebay and remax) I get an error that says:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.
When I click the properties for more information I get the following: javascript:expandCollapse('infoBlockID', true);

When I turn Java off, I am able to sign into my different accounts (eBay...). I have tried to update Java, but nothing else works. Is there a fix so I can search without turning Java off?

A:Java problem???Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage when trying to login

I don't know the cause of your problem but, if it is the update to Sun Java Version 6 Update 16 which came out on 13th August, you could uninstall it via Add/Remove and then download Version 6 Update 15. This is possible because Update 16 was not for 'security' reasons, so 15 is still safe to use.

The fact that your error message mentions 'javascript' is probably irrelevant because JavaScript is different to Sun Java, despite the name being the same. It is also possible that this is an Internet Explorer glitch because IE8 is, apparently, still causing problems for some people.

Hello, so I just got a new ISP yesterday and everything seemed to be working fine, until today. I haven't made any changes (no new updates on security/anti-virus programs). I have wireless internet access (it says it's connected and the diagnose tool can't identify a problem). My main browser is Chrome, but I have Internet Explorer and Firefox. For all three browsers, I can't connect to any websites, except for MSN.com. I have enabled cookies for Chrome, deleted the cache, and have added that program to my firewall's list of accepted programs, and it still won't load pages. However, programs like Spotify, Hulu Desktop, VLC updates, etc that need an internet connection work fine (also, I saved a session in chrome of opened tabs from yesterday and they loaded perfectly fine, but if I try and type them in a new window, they won't load). I have an ethernet cable too, but I don't understand how the programs that need an internet connection work (ex: Spotify radio, Skype,), but my browsers won't.

I don't know if these programs have anything to do with my browsing problem, but I have: CCleaner, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials), and I recently removed McAffee. For my firewall program, I just have Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

Please bear with me. Not only am I a novice Tech Support Guy Forum participant, I'm not as knowledgable as I'd like to be about computers.

I use two computers. One is my employer's; the other is my personal machine. Both utilize Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3. Both machines are set for Internet Explorer 8. Both also use Adobe Reader 9.2 All of the necessary updates are in order.
One website I visit frequently belongs to an organization that archives its newsletters and allows subscribers to retrieve full pages of past issues. All the subscriber needs to do is to type in the date of publication, and thumbnails of each page of that edition appear. (The organization essentially photographs the pages of each edition of the newsletter and makes the pages available as pdf's.)

The problem occurs when I use my personal computer. It doesn't happen all of the time, but it happens often enough to be annoying. When I find a page I want to retrieve and click on that thumbnail, the page comes up -- but with more than half of the text and photos missing. I also get an error message -- "Insufficient Data for an Image."

I went to the forums on the Adobe website, and learned that this error message typically indicates that the pdf file is corrupt. People with this problem are instructed to contact the file's creator.

That advice would normally make sense, except that when I use my employer's computer to retrieve the very same pages,... Read more

I've been having this problem for weeks now. I have a cable connection and a wireless router that plugs right into the computer, which happens to be the one I'm having a problem with (the laptops work fine with the wireless internet, only the computer is screwed up).

When I try going to websites such as AOL.com and MySpace (Only about half of the websites I visit will work), I know the internet connects bc it says "AOL - Welcome to AOL" and shows the logo in the search bar, but does not display. Just sits there...and loads, and loads and loads.

Also, for no reason my Flash player is gone all this sudden after this problem has been happening. And guess what? Adobe.com won't load so I can't reinstall it, but flash player is still listed in the "Add of Remove programs" list!
What could be the problem and what can I do to fix it?

A:[SOLVED] Computer Problem with Internet, connection's not the problem

Hi Brian2570...

it could be a malware issue..have you checked for any infections recently?

If after doing the above and you're sure you system is clean, perhaps try connecting to those sites with your firewall temporarily disabled?

Also, have a look in your HOSTS file for any added entries such as Adobe, AOL and MySpace:

- Click Start -> Run -> type:
notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
- Click Ok
- That will open the hosts file in notepad...if it's quite large, try using the Edit -> Find feature to search for the entries.

Post back if you find any...or not please

For Instance I play this online game called "ijji GunZ The Duel" which is ijji - Where Gamers Unite! and before that theres a short advertising page kinda before it proceeds and theres a link that says "Skip to http://gunz.ijji.com" when I try to click it nothing Happens AT All. And at sometimes when i go to gunz.ijji.com the original page will automatically be there but when i sign in The page is Blank or If I'm Lucky and im signed in i click the "Play Live" Button and nothing happens (Btw The "Play Live" Button is a button when you click it which launches the GunZ game launcher.) And Also On MSN when i right-click My little MSn icon on the taskbar and Click Email Inbox Internet Explorer opens up but shows nothing just a blank page so my thought is its a Javascript Problem

If anyone is out there Please Help me!

I need your help. I can?t seem to connect to the internet with my USB ?dongle? modem on my new laptop. My service provider says that the problem is not a problem with coverage. The device is working properly, according to Windows 7 and I can also access the internet on another older laptop that has Windows XP. The service provider reckons it is likely to be related to one of four possibilities:
? (1) Anti-viral software (I managed to access the internet once to register my subscription and to download some windows updates)
? Services on the laptop not being enabled: (2) telephony, (3) RPC and (4) plug and play. The laptop provider recommended that these settings be changed from manual to automatic, which I?ve done. This allowed me to access the internet again, but only once, allowing to me to download more windows updates.
I guess this looks like it could be the anti-viral software, yes? Should I uninstall my anti-viral software or are there other settings in Windows 7 that I change change/reconfigure? I am not a tech person at all. I?ve been bounced between my service provider and my laptop manufacturer for a couple of weeks now to try to sort this problem, but still no luck. So, any pointers would be really appreciated.

A:Precision 7510 USB port problem, monitor problem and Intel Rapid Storage problem

Some of what you're experiencing may be due to the different hardware than you had in the older system - however, one BIG possibility:
Windows 7 does not fully support the power management features of the Skylake CPU and chipset in your system.  Even if Windows 7 is correctly installed, there will be missing features (Microsoft never implemented the advanced Skylake power management features in anything older than Windows 8).
You'd likely experience some of the same issues with a Skylake Lenovo system.
The Skylake platform in your system WILL run Windows 7 (it's the last Intel platform that will;  the newly released Kaby Lake won't run it at all), but it won't implement all the Skylake power management features it has no drivers for (and never will have drivers for).  Unless you're completely stuck with Windows 7, most of the issue -- or all of them -- will go away if you move to Windows 10.  If you don't do it now, this is the last hardware you'll be buying -- as above, Windows 7 is history as of the release of the new Kaby Lake platform.

I have been downloading pod casts to my windows media player for some time and suddenly it's not working. (from the same site) there is a setting wrong because I can do it successfully from my other computer.

when I click one to download a little box opens up that says;

you have chosen to open: then it lists the name of the audio and at the end says mp3
BUT,,, then it says on the next line;

which is a: v card file

this must be the problem because it's not a v card it's an mp3

how can this be changed so it knows it's an mp3?
I did go under tools and options trying to figure it out and maybe i changed it.

But I am now having trouble downloading in any sites for example, I DL a yahoo game 32.2 mb and i observed the downloading performance, and i wondered why the DL progress was decreasing, i mean it should increase the application size ryt.. until it reaches 32.2 mb but the performance was opposite.. it was decreasing.. i was trying to figured out what was really going on.. is that the way it shud be and eventually increase later or there's something went wrong? So i observed further and tried something else.. I downloaded application in different sites, another yahoo game, another game on diff site and even waited for it a very long time not appropriate for that small file size but it was still the same.. yahoo game i first mentioned, 32.2 mb, it started downloading 25kb and then it slowly went down to 2000bytes something and then 151bytes and much more slowly goes down little by little and it never goes up............. but browsing was'nt bad, even video streaming is good... so i really dont get it..PLEASE HELP!!!! what is the possible problem???? helpppppppp

I were trying to see where that program came and i saw a paste called "intellidownload" then another called "torrentsearch". I deleted that 2, then i tried to download again and the 2 pastes suddently reapered. I don't know what is happening and I would be very grateful if someone could help me.

Sorry for my english.

It is interesting to look at a few other threads on freezing, hanging etc.

Win7 HP Pavillion Laptop
Firefox Internet Download Manager

DSL from ATT Speedstream 5100 modem
normal download speed 3008 kbs/s

1) has worked well for about 6 months
2) many updates to all programs and win7 - later odd problem
3) does not appear to be ATT - techs have checked line and modem many times

during downloads of a batch of files, downloads drop in speed then shut down to zero -- modem sometimes resets itself -- to a much slower speed.

does not "seem" to be a firewall problem - PC Internet Security Suite
and yes I hate to try there tech support for any answers...

OK - reboot modem many times -- no luck will not reset to normal speed.
power off modem and reboot computer -- sometimes will get proper speed.
hard reboot of laptop and reboot modem sometimes will get proper speed.
problem getting worse
suspicions are that there is a win7 app accessing the internet which blows away my downloads. -- but what? there is nothing showing in the task manager...
maybe win7 error reporting?

1) is there a program that will definitely show me what programs are accessing the internet in real time via any/all ports?
2) how can I turn off any possible win7 apps that may want to access the internet?
3) any clever ideas?

---- and yes, I have the latest updates to every driver win7 and HP recommended.

A:odd downloading problem

I just Googled around looking for a similiar issue with your modem.
Correct me if I'm wrong but that model is 2006 or 2007 model which is no longer available.
Has ATT updated the firmware on the modem for you? This may be helpful but it is an older modem.

Water and cold on the exterior of your house can also effect signal strenght which may decrease speed. You also said that it happens when " during downloads of a batch of files"
Do you normally download multiple files at the same time? This can lower bandwidth especially from different servers, etc.

I think you may need to look around for a newer modem as many things have changed in just the last 2 years and your modem isn't handling the speed. I do not feel that Win7 has anything to do with it. It control data in and out very well. Sorry I don't have anything else to add.

Good luck.

Exe files should not open with anything, so never use Open With for them.

Try this:

EXEFIX_Vista (It's fine for 7. Same thing.)

hi thanks for trying to help me. iv been trying to download .mp3 and they just download into a UTF - 8 i dont have a clue what it means. here is a screen shot to help u understand more

A:Problem when downloading

Hello isoman. Welcome to Eight Forums.

Your downloader has your mp3 associated with the wrong file type. UTF-8 is a text file type.

UTF-8 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You could try changing the "save as" file type in your downloader.

Hi and Happy New Year all. I have a strange problem with downloading with FireFox. That being every time I attempt a download the browser disappears, crashes. Before I can click where to save, everything is gone. I can download with IE and MSN IE no problems. I can also install extensions in FF.

So far to try and fix I have uninstalled an optimized version and reinstalled a regular version. No Spyware or virus I am sure. Regular disk checks, all updates, registry clean/repaired.

Any ideas what could be causing this? FF was my favorite for DL's because it was faster now it won't do it at all.

I am trying to download SP2, but it always fails after awhile during the process. When i check for what error message it is, it is always the same error message 80070002.
On the suggestion to try downloading the complete package for It-developers(WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-DEU), i tried this too. Downloading was successful, but when i tried to install it, I had another error message. Right at the end of the unpacking process it stopped telling me the system cannot find the file. in the unpacking status window it shows it is busy on a file called: i386/system.windows.forms.dll
Would be great if some one can help me.

Have tried downloading the 10 ISO from the HeiDoc site but am getting and error right after selecting the language - English or International English.

Has Microcosoft blocked this download now??

Plus just asa by the by burning the ISO to a DVD is that best done at a low speed as I have alwasy thought as PowerISO only gives me max speed and ImgBurn 6x

A:Problem downloading 10 ISO

Did you try this MS link... Windows 10 ISO ? Hope it allows downloading on Win desktops also, but in case it does not then try on an android tablet or phone... it should work.

A:Ie Downloading Problem Help!!!

Have you tried turning off the popup blocker?
Tools/ popup blocker turn off.

Do you have another browser such as firefox or opera?
What happens if you right click on a folder (say my documents ) and choose explore.
Then put a web address in the bar where it has a file address and hit enter?
Can you download there?
If so the first place to go is to http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/
and get firefox so you have an alternative browser to use while we troubleshoot this IE problem.

i am currently having difficulty downloading files to my computer. i am running ccleaners, combofix, malwarebytes, and avast antivirus protection. i have a 32 bit windows vista home premium operating system and am using internet explorer 9 browser.  i have made several adjustments in internet explorer, enabling downloading files in different zones with no success. is this an area that this forum deals with? any help would be appreciated.

A:downloading problem

Welcome to BC !
You said...i have made several adjustments in internet explorer.....
Open IE and click on Tools and choose Internet Options. Click on the Security Tab. At the bottom you will see
a button when clicked will reset All Zones To Default Level...click on it. Click OK and reboot IE.
Does that solve the problem?
Did any on your scans find malware? Are there any unusual processes running?
Risky business using Combofix without guidance.
