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.)

Hello, I have a computer that has Firefox and Internet Explorer installed (latest updates) on Windows XP Pro and everytime I launch one of them my computer freezes. It does not display an error of any kind. I cannot do anything. Although I can move my mouse anywhere. I've ran programs Ashampoo, PC Checkup and a Register clean up program. I don't know if those are any good but apperantly they do not do anything to fix my issue. I know I have access to the internet because I can connect to my messenger.

Yesterday I re-installed Firefox (trying my last way of fixing this issue) and after I finished installing it, it launched to its default website. I then closed the browser, I launched it again to recheck and my computer froze up again.

Please help me

Thank you

my OS: XP pro

I have been using Firefox as my internet browser, yet Internet Explorer still pops up with advertisements from several companies or AOL searches for products (such as: www.searchfeed.com, c5.zedo.com/jsc/c5/ff2.html?n=377;c=99;s=36;d=27;w=1024;h=768, www.pcsecurityshield.com/lp/shield-deluxe-5.aspx?trk=WTK&affid=541, url.adtrgt.com, and other companies). These seem to pop up every few minutes.

My computer's desktop image was changed to a blue screen with a yellow box that read "Virus detected, please download an adware remover" and as a computer administrator (on our multi-user computer) i had privileges such as removing programs and changing my desktop settings. About the same time as the pop ups started occurring, I lost my administrative privileges. *note, this problem has been solved, but i thought that it may be relevant*

I asked a friend of mine to help me, and he told me to run several programs: SpyBot S&D, Spy-Ad exterminator, and HijackThis. While these programs did detect many infected files and what not, my problem didn't go away (completely), so i did a system restore and the only things that remained were the pop ups that opened in Internet Explorer.

Hey everyone:

I'm running Windows XP and I'd like to update my browser to the easiest yet most secure application. I'm currently running Internet Explorer, so I'm leaning towards IE8. However, i've heard lots of rumors about IE...that it's not secure, that there are bugs with the new IE8. With firefox, friends have told me that it isn't as easy to navigate but is safer to use than IE.

If anyone out there can tell me the pros and cons with using IE vs. Firefox I'd truly appreciate it. Also, if there's anyone out there that's having serious problems with IE8 and wouldn't suggest, please let me know! I've seen the postings with being unable to access certain websites using IE8 like pogo.com (a site that I love to use!)

Thanks in advance guys

A:Internet Explorer 8 vs. Firefox

Which you prefer is really a matter of personal preference. In no particular order, here is a list of reasons to prefer Firefox.
1. It is not a MS product.
2. It is not a part of the Windows Operating System.
3. Security patches and system enhancements are frequent and timely.
4. With the use of add-ons, you can tailor your browser to meet very individual needs.
5. It is not a MS product.
6. It loads (at least for me) pages much faster than IE.
7. It includes a spell-check function for Internet entries ( I am an forum addict).
8. Bookmarks are easy to organise and are automatically backed up.
9. Personal preferences are kept in separate files, so you can reinstall Firefox without loosing them.
10. It is not a MS product.

Regards,
John

Hello to everybody in this forum.
Just a dumb question from me, again to start the new year.
Should/would a site look exactly the same whether using FF or IE?
I am obviously asking as I have found a site which i have to log into,
where there is a difference between the Two?
Not life threating, but would appreciate any feedback.
Thank-you
 

A:Firefox and Internet Explorer

The site obviously looks the same on both FF & IE.
Difference being when i hit the settings tab, selecting
privacy, on IE, I get the option to change my password,
Whereas, that same page appears different on FF,
Could it be a setup/settings issue that i can adjust?

Internet Explorer VS. Firefox - Which is better?

I am currently using IE but have heard that most people are switching to Firefox.

I haven't even seen Firefox much less used it, so I dont know if it is any good?

Can ANYONE give me where a good unbiased revue compairing the two?
:stickout: [Gee i'm a poet and didn't even know it.]


Thanks :grinthumb
 

A:Internet Explorer VS. Firefox

I think googling firefox vs. ie would be a start.

Personally I use firefox, I used to use ie.
Not everything works in firefox(most normal webpages do), for example sites that use active x don't work, like windows update, so you still need to keep ie around even if it isn't the main browser. I really can't stand using ie anymore after using firefox, mainly because of tab browsing, although you can achieve a similar effect by just opening ie several times, or installing a browser add on like maxthon.

But IMO, Firefox is way better, I love tabs, and the find as you type thing is nice too, plus there are extensions that let you add features that you like, and themes to change the look.

Last week my computer had a virus that I successfully removed using Malwarebytes. Since then I have been unable to access the internet using my default browser Google Chrome (instead I receive a 'This Webpage is not available.' message with the error: Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error.

Or with internet explorer where the following message is received: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

Yet it works fine with Firefox. I then tried signing in via Windows Live Messenger where it failed and upon doing the connection troubleshooter received an exclamation mark next to the proxy and key ports sections.

Is there any way for me to fix it so that I can have normal internet access? One major problem right now is that I cannot even upload pictures via Photobucket or even e-mail where Google Chrome gives the message: Attachment failed. This may be due to a proxy or firewall.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,

I am using Firefox 2.0 and, about every 2-3 minutes, an Internet Explorer window pops up. I have tried programs like Search and Destroy, but nothing seems to help. I have included my Hijack This log. Thank you for your help.

Client accidently fell for a antivirus scam and downloaded a doozie. I have done everything immanginable to clean it out of the system (Norton Antivirus, Norton Power Eraser, Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware, Microsoft Security Essentials, etc.).

I recently installed Mozilla Firefox and made it my default browser for security reasons. Since then it seems to have affected some sites (such as my monthly phone statement) and they won't open. When I click on the link a window opens up asking me to "Locate Link Browser". When I click on Firefox I get a message "Outlook cannot start the web browser for X. The web address may be incorrect, or your web browser may be incorrectly installed".

I removed Firefox and Internet Explorer and couldn't find IE, so I have re-installed it.

What's going on here and can anyone help?

A:Does Firefox Block Internet Explorer?

I've had this problem myself. What I did to correct it was go into search and type in "IExplore.exe". It most likely is in a file other than the Internet Explorer folder. What you want to do to fix this is right click the application and drag it to the Internet Explorer folder.

Good luck!

Microsoft has figured out how to get websites to stop treating Internet Explorer like a second-class web browser: it?s going to disguise itself as Firefox. A simple tweak to the Internet Explorer 11 user agent string has been spotted, thanks to an early build of Windows Blue leaking to the web over the weekend.

The switch takes place in the first segment of the string. Right after the Mozilla/5.0 you?ll notice IE 11.0. In Internet Explorer 10, the same space is occupied by compatible; MSIE 10.0. At the end of the string, Microsoft has also tacked on the like Gecko statement. It?s a subtle change, but it?s all that?s required to convince websites that Microsoft isn?t a browser that requires special treatment. If a website is sniffing user agents before serving up customized code, these tweaks essentially tell it ?this is a Gecko-powered browser, like Mozilla Firefox.?

Hi:
 
I don't know what the heck is going on but during the last week or so neither Internet explorer nor Firefox have been working.  What I mean is that when I click on the shortcuts they don't/won't open. 
 
 
Actually that isn't right, Firefox did work in Safe Mode but when I went to the normal mode it wan't working.  Then when I went back to Safe Mode it stopped working.  As for Internet Explorer browser, it does open halfway but then it's only a blank page where you would normally see the homepage or that error message about checking your connection. 
 
I have uninstalled an re-installed numerous times but to no avail and it's driving me crazy!
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi guys,

I started noticing a problem with one of my PCs where at first a certain folder in My Documents started closing at random and it would pop up with an error message with something about Dr. Watson program error message (Hope that rings a few bells.) A few restarts later, I was unable to access Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. Every time I clicked on the icons, it would give error message: "This file may have been moved or your account may not have permission to access this file."

I went into Safe Mode and ran a full system scan using AVG but could not find anything. I also tried the Avast Worm Cleaner tool but did not find anything. Funny thing is that in Safe Mode, I am able to use Firefox or Internet Explorer (using the same account). I also tried installing and running Trojan Remover which found an exe file in the System directory that seemed suspicious but after removing it, and running the computer in normal mode, the issue persists. In Normal mode, if I right click on FireFox and "run as" I can choose the account, I choose myself again and it seemed to open and work for me. That was yesterday.

Now, I am unable to access the internet even in Safe Mode now.

A:Internet Explorer/firefox Switch

It sounds like you need to reset IE as your default browser. Open up internet explorer and and under the 'TOOLS' menu you with find 'Internet Options'.

Under the Internet Options window, choose the 'Programs' tab.

Towards the bottom you will see a button that says 'Make default'. That will revert IE6 back to being your default browser. To prevent this from happening in the future, also check the box that says 'Tell me if IE is not the default browser'.

When I go on the internet (slow speed) it starts up fine, the server , that is, but using explorer or firefox will not allow me on the internet. Nothing happens , it searches for the websites. The internet works, since I am on it here on another computer. Normally I run slow DSL and I can not tell when it is on or not. Either case I cannot get on either one.

A:Internet Explorer and Firefox disconnect?

Hiya

I've moved you to Web and Email for more response, plus edited out the email, as you may get spammed from having it in there

As both browsers are having trouble, have you checked with your ISP for any problems? If so, go to http://forum.aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Regards

Recently my father clicked on one of those "You have a virus" ads which led to a blue screen and the computer constantly restarting. I took it to a local shop to just reformat the whole system. A week later I got problems with IE constantly giving me popups. I assumed it was some sort of malware and I used superantispy to remove it. Now I have a new problem, while I can load websites just fine when I enter the address in the address bar, I am unable to conduct searches with google. It just never loads. Also my father has told me he is unable to log onto his email at gmail because the loading jus continues with no progress.

Also the laptop is having problems with hooking up to a external monitor when before the reformat it didn't have that problem. It only lets me extend the desktop onto the monitor but it won't let me set the external monitor as a the primary one. The monitor is a Acer x18w I think.

A:Internet Explorer And Firefox Browsers

I don't use FF. But in Opera, for instance, there is a setting "Make this my default browser", so try to find something similar in FF.

That said, some applications are so bundled with IE that IE must run when you try to use them. Your IM might be one of those.

You might also try telling the site you're visiting to see your browser as being FF rather than IE. Something along these lines should be in site preferences perhaps.
