Preferred Solution: Limited Access for Internet (Moved from Windows 7 forum)

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.)


since the upgrade I have been unable to connect to the Internet.

The errors I get
- one or more network protocols are missing on this computer - windows sockets registry entries required for network connectivity

I have tried
- netsh windsock reset
- ipconfig /release
- ipconfig /renew

If you need screen shots or addition data, let me know.

Thanks in advance

I recently uninstalled and reinstalled Explorer 8.0 in connection to fixing some related Firefox issues. Firefox is now working fine, but Explorer can't connect to microsoft.com (the program does open). According to the diagnostic program that it asks to run, there is a problem with the ftp protocol. In looking into repair of Explorer, microsoft.com is telling me that Explorer 8.0, and Explorer 7.0 are not compatible with the 32-bit XP operating system. Interestingly, when I had uninstalled Explorer 8 during the fixes, suddenly Explorer 7.0 appeared in Control Panel as being installed, whereas before the removal, only Explorer 8 was shown. It appears that I had both versions installed, but that Control Panel was only showing the most recent version. I do have the program and update folders for both programs appearing within the Windows folder. So, how can I find the most recent version of Explorer for XP and fix this issue? Any help would be most appreciat... Read more

A:Internet Explorer questions (Moved from Windows XP forum)

Version 8 (8.0.6001.18702) is the most current version that can be used in Windows XP SP3 32-bit or Windows XP SP2 64-bit.

It shouldn't be used anyway because many websites no longer support it and requires the use of a more current browser, such as Mozilla Firefox (which is what I use in both bit versions).

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum!

Windows 8 laptop got overheated from sitting in the sun and being used. At first it wouldn't turn on, but then it was left alone to cool and it opened up and such seemingly normally. But now it won't connect to the internet and says there are no available connections. The other computers and phones are fine, though. Is there something that can be done or such?

A:Computer Internet Issue (Moved from Windows 8 forum)

Try not to keep the laptop in the sun... overheating will lead to the battery failing and expand... like this:

Not good indeed - you don't want that thing to explode! Batteries tend to be around $100 depending on the vendor so it's not cheap to replace. Some vendors will replace them for free depending on age.

As to the issue in itself... can you confirm what make/model this machine is? Some laptops have a switch or a button that turns on / off the wireless.

Also I believe if you click right click on the wireless icon you can choose troubleshoot problems and if it is due to the wireless being turned off, it should prompt you for it.

I'm currently working on fixing a computer that has a Win32.Trojan.RX Virus (nasty bugger) and I'm trying to get online to do a HJT and download some things to scan the computer (as it has nothing to scan it with for some reason) But I keep getting mass amounts of popups and the computer starts giving me low virtual memory errors. After this happened about 7 times of trying to get online, I decided to try doing Safe Mode with Networking, but it wont let me online that way either, and I know for a fact that my internet isn't PPPoE. I don't know what I should do. Any help would be much obligued. BTW it is a Dell-XP Home Edition. I was thinking of doing a PC restore but I'm not sure as to if that would get rid of the virus or not. I've already gone through the add/remove list and took off malware softwares.

Hello SummonerKrista

If you cant get online on your PC and download HJT, would you be able to download it on another computer and transfer it onto the infected PC, then scan and then get a log?

If you would like to get your PC virus free you are able to use the HJT help section on TSF, Click here. (Just click on the coloured links.) to post your log in HJT help section.

As far as I know, your History folder is the way to look at which websites you have visited.

Having NT or not, makes no difference.

I am going to move this thread to the Internet Forum, and I hope they will be able to help you further. Perhaps they can help you find the site again... by using search engines, and re-tracing your steps when you originally found the site.

A:Windows 7 - Limited Internet Access

Read other 6 answers

Hi Everyone...

I have a Toshiba Satellite C850 Running windows 8 64-bit,, and it was working fine,, suddenly the wifi now doesn't connect and says limited internet access, when i press troubleshoot it says "wifi doesn't have a valid IP configuration",,, and also i tried connecting it through a LAN cable,, it doesn't work either,, but other laptops and mobile phones connects perfectly to the network,,,, it happened after I installed Skype??!!! may,,be it's a coincidence but thought i should say.....

I've tried disabling both network adapters,, forgetting the network then connecting,, tried removing "bonjour" from the firewall,, but i didn't even had bonjour.... I'm going insane with it,,, please help...

A:How do I fix the limited internet access in my windows 8

You might try this:


With upgrades sometimes winsock or the TCP/IP stack gets corrupted. To reset them both type the following two commands into an elevated command prompt [right click lower left of screen and select Command Prompt (Admin)] one at a time hitting enter after each one then reboot the system

netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)

netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)

Sorry it is a repeating question but I have seen so many answers and been chasing my tail to fix this for so long that I have just given up and decided to ask myself!

Using Outlook to send & recieve mails from a webmail hoster, I regularly get booted off the internet and am left with the Limited Access message. Usually unplugging the router clears it but it is a nuisance to say the least.

I have even tried reverting to a cable but the problem continues.

The problem even happens to my wife's Samsung laptop, although the info below is from mine.

A:Limited Access windows 7 internet

Read other 10 answers

Have windows 7 os and have a problem connecting to certain websites e.g. google, hotmail etc but otherwise can surf the net. Tried diagnosing problem and the message came up "your dns server might be unavailable." I have tried troubleshooting from online advice - resetting the router, restarting everything, tried resetting the dns cache and changing the ip address but that just lead to an ip conflict. Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Limited internet access with windows 7

this maybe a malware issue or maybe a DNS issue
but first check hosts file - see below

next try google open dns

Checking the Host file
Open Notepad - Start> Programs> Accessories> and right click on Notepad select "Run as Administrator" to open a notepad
Now goto 'File' > 'Open' and browse to the HOSTS file - which will be located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc. - you may need to change the drop down box next to the file name:box from Text Documents (*.txt) to ALL Files (*.*)
The file should look like the info at the bottom of this post

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.
Once you are finished, go up to 'File' and click 'Save'. Make sure to change the Save as Type: box to All files.
Otherwise, Notepad may add a .txt extension to the file which will keep it from working. If you don't have your system set to show extensions, it's easy to miss that.

Hello to the forum,

Well I have another problem. This problem is with a Dell Inspiron 1750 laptop with an Intel processor. First off, this is not my computer, it belongs to my sister in-law, so I have limited information as to what transpired leading up to the problem. There seems to be a lot of people with similar problems with Windows 7, but I haven't been able to find a fix.

I have done all the basic testing that can be found covering this issue, and since many of the fixes require an Internet connection, well you get the picture.

Now, I admit that I know very little about computers, but this problem seems like either a virus has taken over, or there's a software / hardware conflict.

I'm able to access all of the control functions for the Internet, and all services, and hardware show that they are working properly. There doesn't appear that there is a recent program change, or download that can be tied directly to the time period when the connection was lost about a week ago. (yes I've been trying to fix this for a week now, this is my last resort)

Also, the system restore only goes back 2 days, so the computer can't be set back to a time before the problem started.

Codes are as follows.2000-0151, OX490, OX8007042c, OFOO:0232, 968634624:, MSG 1068 appears when trying to restart the service. And the dreaded BSOD has appeared a couple of times,but disappears before I could get the codes.

I've done quite a bit of research on this problem, and to be... Read more

You didn't even mention if this was a wired or wireless connection?

Have you tried going to the Windows Update Center using a wired connection for the latest updates.

The Lenovo site shows wireless drivers which came out yesterday, they may make changes to them if they aren't working so check the driver version. Other than that this particular model of Lenovo is famous for having problems which I'm sure you are aware of, no magic fix that I know of.

Hello. Today, when i opened my PC i found out that i have "No internet connection". The last time i used it was last night, and it worked like a charm. The problem is from the software itself I guess because other devices seem to be working fine connected to the internet. This also happened to me while using windows 8.1 but I got it fixed everytime with a simple "netsh" command. Now things aren't this simple, i tried multiple fixes and none of them worked. I tried to update the driver from the device manager but i can't find the microsoft and the producer driver, instead i find some outdated drives from like 2013.

However the laptop will not allow limited accounts to access the internet FireFox [preferred browser] it looks like it fails to open [though you have to shut programme down on exiting the account] and IE opens but the page fails to load.IF I change their accounts to admin ones go into their accounts and access the internet leave it open and then go back to mine and change their user permission to limited. It is still working fine until they either log out or switch teh computer off.Is there a problem with how the laptop is connecting to the network?

I was running backup4all but it was idle when I left my pc for an hour or so. When I came back the following was on my screen
"vscsrv2008x64.exe has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program & notify you if a solution is available."
I did a search for it on google & it seems to be related to backup programs but i cant determine if it is serious.
Any help appreciated.

A:What is vscsrv2008x64.exe (moved from Windows 8 forum)

The file is related to the back up program you mentioned. The program is not free. Did you purchase it or download the free trial? If the latter then it's possible the trial has expired and you have to decide if you want to purchase it or uninstall it.

If you purchased it, perhaps some security software is interfering.

Have you ever run it successfully?

What security software are you running?

Last month (or longer) I switched from IE to Chrome. Today I went back to IE just to get a name of a site I bookmarked and nothing was there(?) Everything was gone. What happened to all my old bookmarks and is there a way to find them?

A:Looking for my bookmarks on IE (Moved from Windows 8 forum)

Bookmarks are called Favorites in IE. I assume you looked under Favorites in the IE Menu bar? I also assume we're talking about IE11?

If so and they aren't there are you sure you're logged in as the correct user who added those sites to your favorites?

Lastly, look in this location:

C:\Users\(your usename)\Favorites folder to see if they are listed there.

I see references by helpers to run this program and would like to know if it is something I should have on my desktop should it be run as part of computer maintenance and if so, how often. Thank you.

A:TFC by Old timer (Moved from Windows 8 forum)

It is a temp file cleaner. You can use it OR use something like Ccleaner [which is what I use]
As for how often to run, that depends on how much you use the system AND how much time you spend online. Once a week should be fine however if you are online a LOT, run it more often.
