Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer Unable To Play Games & Movies Or Download From Site

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.)

Movies are some of the best ways to pass time. The way some movies really resonate with me is quite fascinating. I kind of prefer watching TV series these days because the story tends to be longer. Aside from that, it is quite an amazing blog you
have here. I am a blogger too and I know the work you have to put in just to get a website as nice as yours. Your contents are great and I have bookmarked your website and would becoming every day. I tried these two websited for downloading movies but (zamob and Fzmovies)

For example, when I clicked on the link above, Download TSG SysInfo, I get this popup: "SysInfo.exe couldn't be downloaded". I tried to download Adobe Reader and got the same thing. I cannot open a pdf file from an email message. I have tried many solutions from many internet sites, but none worked. I reset IE to default setting, messed around with manage add-ons and other settings, but no luck. I ran full scan with Microsoft security essentials and malware, no threats detected. disabled windows firewall, didn't help. I can surf the internet ok, but sometimes get the pop-up, internet explorer has stopped working. I would ditch IE and use google chrome but can't download it. the problem seems to be with IE.

Hi all. I have gotten intrested in learning how to create movies of some games I play. I hear there is a way to do this by hooking your computer up to your VCR, recording it to a blank tape, then transferring it back to your computer to edit the movie. But right now, i am completely clueless. I don't know what parts I need, what wires I need, etc. Can anyone help?
 

A:Need help learning how to create movies of games I play

there is software out there that actually will record our game straight to your hdd. Im imagining that it degrades performance quite a lot... but yea
Most G/cards will have a TV out function, you should be able to run to your TV from them, and record to a tape much like you would record a TV programme. The big factor is getting it back
My knowledge, right or wrong, would be that youd need to obtain a video capture card. Form there, video editing software could modify the movie.

I have had a problem with Internet explorer 5.5 for the last month (I'm running it on Windows 95B). Every time I attempt to download a file from a website the download box shows up and then an alert message appears saying:
"Internet Explorer cannot download (file) from (site).
Internet Explorer was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."
I tried downloading the same files through Netscape Navigator and it works fine. So it's not my connection.
I have tried reinstalling IE, i have also downloaded the latest IE5.5 service pack but to no avail.

i think i may have a virus or some malware. internet explorer will not allow me to download any files. When downloading the files they complete downloading. A message then appears stating the download "contained a virus and was deleted". oddly enough i also cannot access windows defender or windows firewall settings. When accessing defender windows cannot find specified file. Although i can get into the inital windows firewall screen when i click the update settings dialogue i receive a "windows firewall was unable to make the requested updates" error message. I suspect a virus but despite several attempts i have been unable to remove this and therefore download any files. i am running Windows Vista Home Premium. Any ideas please as this issue is driving me round the bend?

I have tried most of the posts on the internet to fix this problem--this is under IE6--"Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later." The problem just suddenly appeared. I'm running a Dell Inspiron B130 laptop with Win XP Home, Service Pack 3 installed, 1 gb ram and a 40 gb HDD. Had McAffee Internet Security Suite preinstalled but removed it via REVO Uninstaller and have only Windows firewall enabled and NO anti-virus. I did try downloading with Windows firewall disbaled and still no success. I can navigate to a site like Google Chrome download page but then when I click on the download button, the error message appears. Also can't download Microsoft or Windows updates from either site, although, again, I can get through the "checking" phase. I've run Malwarebytes, A-Squared, and IObit 360 and removed about 13 traces of malware ranging from low risk to high risk, defragged and cleaned the reg, all to no avail. I originally had IE7 installed, read about rolling back to IE6 and doing the typical repair sequences, again to no avail. Supposedly IE8 fixes this, but I can't download it, although I did try the stand-alone installer of 15 MB without checking the "get updates" box. It loaded and installed and shows up as IE8 but still had the same problems. Then did a system restore back to before the IE8 install, rolled back to IE6 again... Read more

Whenever I play D3 I lost the internet connection on my computer. My roommates both play Dota 2 and CS:GO but they never lose connection. I even tried getting on while they are not on. My ping is usually around 90-135 while on D3 and I still lose connection. We called Comcast, everything's good on their end. My internet speed is 10 mbps download and around 3 mbps upload. We changed the router, not the modem (we bought our own instead of using Comcast's modem), and I still have the issues of losing connection. None of them have D3 to try out and see if it runs okay on their PCs. Maybe I should have them download the game and I could try playing on theirs. Also, when I play at other people's homes who have 10mbps, I never lose connection or anything. I don't want to have to rent Comcast's modem because it is too pricey here. If anyone has any ideas, it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

However, I wanted to download some movies of the european cinema of the 50s, 60s and 70s that I cannot possibly find at my local video club. Is there a safer way to download these movies?  Can I download movies and at the same time make sure my pc doesn't contract a virus?
 
Thank you!

A:Download movies from the internet safely

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Girl in Black (Greek: ?? ????ts? µe ta ?a??a) is a 1956 Greek dramatic film by the Cypriot director Michael Cacoyannis starring Dimitris Horn and Ellie Lambeti. The film takes place on the Greek island of Hydra, where two Athenian visitors become entangled in local feuds after one of them falls in love with a local girl.
It was one of the first Greek films to achieve international recognition (Golden Globe award).
 
Many of the "rapid fire" Greek movies have no links left, but some still do.

Are you using an on-board graphics? Try to update your driver first. Use the driver CD included with your PC if you have it.

Hi. I'm new to this site, so I hope I'm posting this in the right section.
I am unable to load games on Shockwave.com. Some games I can load ( Super Text Twist®, Daily Jigsaw , (just to name a few) , and then some I can't load (JigsawParty, Monkey Quest).

I've contacted Shockwave Help. They've basically gave up on me, and told me there's nothing they can do (in so many words). So I'm at a lost here. I don't know why I can't load games on Shockwave. I've tried just about everything.

This is what happens when I try to load Jigsaw Party/or Monkey Quest:
With Google Chrome...

I'll get to the "Connect..." screen, then nothing happens, and I'm stuck on that screen. Or I'll get the "Connecting..." screen, and then a message saying: "Service is down. Please try again later."
With IE...

I get the advertisement, and then after the screen goes blank.
Here are the things Shockwave Customer Support told me to do:

1. They told me to uninstall, then reinstall both Adobe Flash Player, and Adobe Shockwave Player...

(This actually worked. But, I wanted to clear my browsing data (cache/cookies, etc.), and then it stop working again, for some reason. I don't know if that had something to do with it.)

2. They told me to visit this link (http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html), and to follow the steps...

(That didn't work.)
3. They told me to ... Read more

Just got a new Valkyrie CZ-15 from the site ibuypower and so far I've tried playing ACE Online, Maplestory, Chivalry Medieval Warfare, ORION Dino Horde, and Company of Heroes 2. I can't even start up Maplestory and CoH 2, and the frame rate is terrible on ACE Online when enemies group together on screen. Bad framerate on ORION and Chivalry as well. I tried running Runescape and that ran fine, along with Minecraft. What can I do to fix this? I've already tried updating the Intel and NVIDIA graphics driver.

Here are the problems I'm noticing: Maplestory only loads up until the Black Cipher thing, then crashes and requests to send an error report, CoH 2 is unable to create a dump file (error 183) and also requests to send an error report. After troubleshooting Maplestory's compatibility with Windows XP (SP3), Windows 7, and Windows Vista (SP2) all of them come up as Maplestory still being incompatible with my laptop. Would downgrading to Windows 7 fix this or is my laptop just not meant for this? Are the specs not enough? I'd even be willing to downgrade to Windows XP if it would solve this.

Please help.

I just recently built a computer for a friend on mine so he would be able to play his flash based games online and offline. After the initial boot-up games played wonderfully @ 640x480 resolution. After updating his graphics drivers and changing the resolution to anything above 640x480 the games became unplayable due to lag. We have updated all drivers to the latest, BIOS, VIA Chipset drivers etc... even rolled back graphics & sound drivers to previous versions to no avail. We have also unchecked "hardware acceleration" in flash to see if that would help which it has not. The computer is more than capable of running flash games as it's a 1.7ghz, 1024mb DDR, GeForce 6800 512mb DDR. The computer exceeds all minimum requirements for these games (Machinarium etc..) Flash & Shock-Wave both have been updated to the very latest as well as legacy version to see if that was the problem, which it was not. We're really stuck on what to do and running out of ideas fast.

For over a month now I have been unable to play games at pogo because something is wrong with my java. I have uninstalled and cleaned and reinstalled and so on and so on. But every time I reinstall I still get the same error message saying my java is not installed or is disabled. I have went through ever tech support person they have there and to no avail , I still cant play any games. I have done everything I know to do and also everything they have listed in the "help" section which has truly been no help. So now I turn to you! I have been to the java.com website also and I cant even get java to download so I can install it...any suggestions on how to get this fixed?
 

A:Unable to play games on pogo

My wife plays Pogo anytime she's on the computer. Suddenly, a few weeks ago, she couldn't play any of the games, none of them! I searched the Web for answers and got the same old run around everyone else is getting; "Empty IE Cashe" and "Empty Java Cashe" or "Re-install Java" (Round & round, we go!).
I had another computer online and it would play everything just fine and was using IE6. So I uninstalled IE7, which supposedly reverts back to IE6. Well, this didn't turn out so good, everything was really screwed up. So I decided to crash the computer, reformat and do a 'clean' install of Windows XP which comes with IE6.
This worked OK for about a day or two, until I started updating XP and IE6. Somewhere along the way the updates caused the old Pogo Problem to rear it's head again. She was 'let's say' ANGRY!!!
For two weeks I struggled with attempted fixes, nothing fixed it. I was at my wits end and thought "If IE won't work, how about another browser?"
I downloaded "Mozilla Firefox" and troubles have simply vanished!!! She plays any game without problems.
So much for Microsoft forcing IE on us.

I'm having an odd problem. When I goto the Windows Update site, it scans my computer for updates I require. After choosing from the list I want to download, I start the download process. However, I keep getting the message that download failed for each of the files I try to download.

I can manually download updates by going to the downloads section of the MS site. I was able to use the update site about 6 weeks ago, however I have a feeling that by using AdAware, I might have deleted something inadvertently.

I have no problem downloading from other sites. I have disabled my firewall to see if that was causing the issue, but it didn't help.

Your assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:Unable to download updates from Windows Update Site

I am having issue downloading or printing file(pdf/docx/pptx) from SharePoint document library in IE browser. This works on all other browser but do not work for everyone in our organization.

The issue exist only in very specific instance. I am navigating to the said SharePoint Document library from PowerApps app embedded in SharePoint Site. When I click on the link in Powerapp, it opens the library in a tab, when you try to download or print
document from this tab it opens a blank tab and nothing happens.
However if you go directly to this library location instead of clicking hyperlink from PowerApps, everything works.

Alright, for the past few days I've been playing Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Sometimes when I try to play on a server (any server, not just a few) I get a big "Connection Interrupted" message on my screen and a 999 ping. Sometimes I can get into games, but then a bit later I'll get the same thing.

The last time this happened, I closed Wolfenstein and opened SysMetrix (a utility to show system activity) and I saw that, under Net In, there was a fluctuating download of 1.5 to 3.2 KBPS, which is pretty bandwidth-consuming considering I'm on 56K. I ran Ad-Aware to make sure adware wasn't the issue, and I'm clean.

Any idea what the problem is or could be?

Hello All,
i hope someone out there can help me. i have windows Vista and i can't play the online multiplayer games on MSN and i don't know why, i don't get any error messages or anything.
i can play the online games as a single player but when a friend invites me to play against them and i accept rather than taking me to the game to play with them, i get taken to the single player mode.
i hope i have made sense. i can play the multiplayer games with them in the "message window" but not the other online mulitplayer games.

my friend has the exact same operating system as me and encounters the same problems that i do.

i hope someone has a solution out there as MSN is really boring without the multiplayer games.

thanks a million

I recently had a problem with my games (found in the thread here) that involved the games lagging badly. It turned out to be an image settings preference that I hadn't set properly. In my attempt to fix the problem however I did a clean install of drivers and updated to v301.42.

Since I installed the new driver none of my games would start (NBA 2K12, Assassin's Creed, Skyrim etc.) and simply go to a black windowed screen. Skyrim tells me that 'Your display doesn't support the selected resolution'. However, I am using the native resolution (1680x1050) for my monitor.

Has anyone got any ideas as to why this might be happening and/or how I could go about fixing it?

A:Resolution not set properly, unable to play games

Hello once again JaidynM,

Can you try lowering the resolution of your monitor to non-native temporarily to test out a hypothesis i have?

Try setting the resolution to 1280x800 or 1280x720 (next 16:10/16:9 resolution on your list i presume), and running the affected games again?

Also for Skyrim, If you do not have any custom Skyrim.ini or custom SkyrimPrefs.ini files (ones you've modified personally, line by line and do not wish to delete), could you try to back them up and then delete them from your Documents/My Games/Skyrim folder to allow the game to generate fresh ones for your newly minted drivers?

After doing so, run the launcher again, let the game auto-detect your hardware and and run the game again..

Give it a shot and holler back...

EDIT:- How about other 3D based software like benchmarks (Unigine Heaven) or Furmark? Do they run with the same errors?

Also with Skyrim, try running it in windowed mode as an experiment?

Hi,
i'm a bit confused with the resolution of my screen. I'm using a lenovo y700, and according to the screen settings i'm using 1920x1080. Yet with some games (witcher 3) my screen is not big enough to display the image entirely However i can play Overwatch and far cry 3 on 1920x1080. According to various websites my screen resolution is actually 1536x864. I have updated my drivers, but that didn't change anything. Anyone here who can help me out?

I am using internet Explorer 11 to access the www.nemsis.org site and when I go to access http://www.nemsis.org/media/CustomElementLibrary/ .

I get the error message below:


I can use Chrome just fine to access the page. I have a coworker who can access just it just fine and he is using Internet Explorer 11 and was also able to access on Firefox. Is there something I am missing to access it? The page should display a map.

Thank you in advanced.
