Buttons on websites won't load/do nothing when I click on them?

Q: Buttons on websites won't load/do nothing when I click on them?

I doubt I'm asking this question in the right category, but I figured it could be a result of me disabling some services to stop cpu spikes every hour.

The problem started a few days ago. It only applies to buttons that depend on other fields being filled before one can click on them. Using the link below as an example, I could not proceed despite filling in my birthday. The "go" or "next" button will not become solid. I thought it was an issue with the website, but my friend didn't have a problem when he tried it. I experienced something similar on amazon, where clicking on a button to get a seller account wouldn't do anything (it's supposed to show a box where I can type in a verification code and connect me with someone from amazon). It's a problem on any browser. I can download programs just fine, so it's only an issue on the internet.

Preferred Solution: Buttons on websites won't load/do nothing when I click on them?

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.)

On this new laptop the left and right click buttons are in the corners of the trackpad, unlike my old aspire where they were on a seperate pad just below. The problem with the new one is, the cursor moves when you press for left click, making it annoyingly hard to scroll down, stop, then scroll down again. Is there a fault on it, or can this over-sensitivity be adjusted?

A:left click and right click buttons

We can't really figure that out if we don't know your computer model.

Hi,

I am having trouble with using the buttons and the writing windows of websites.

Whenever I hit a button with my mouse or try to advance to another writing window, ie: with your tab key. I get a long hiccup or pause before I responds. It can be as long as a minute.

I hope you know what I am talking about.

I do remember that once that happened before and it was because my macfee viriser was working in the back ground. But that is not on. Maybe there is something running in the background, but I forget how to check.

Anything you can think of.

I am using a PIII 256megs compag with ie as my browser.

A:I can't view pics and buttons on websites

have you installed any anti-trojan software? A lot of times they'll change your hosts file and send thousands and thousands of sites to 127.0.0.1 (your machine, basically a black hole)

check your hosts file (just search for "hosts", or check windows/system32/drivers/etc or winnt/s) and read it in notepad...see if there are 2 or 3 entries (default, as it was installed) or hundreds/thousands...if there are hundreds/thousands then it's probably the hosts file that's keeping those sites from loading.

check and post and let us know.

My friend's laptop has been acting up lately and he asked me for some help. Some website that he used to visit regularly will not load and if they do, the layout and graphics are all messed up. Also, he can't seem to click on any buttons at all. I tried to install Norton but I can't click on the buttons to register his version. Therefore, I cannot run a virus scan to see if that is the problem. Can anyone help me fix his laptop?
 

A:Can't Click any Buttons

You can do a virus scan online @ www.housecall.antivirus.com also try empting your TEMP folder and Internet Temp Folder
if you are running win9x its under the windows folder if you are running win2k and up its uder C:\Documents and Settings\NAMEofUSER\Local Settings\...
flush your DNS from a command window START-->RUN-->CMD type the following:
ipconfig /flushdns or if you have win2k xp on the network properties. there is a repair button that will do that for you too it clears all cache.. but not the ones in the folder jsut the one on the TCP/IP stack
also try a ping on the page. get the IP address of it and see if it can load that way or if you ahve the same issue

Hello there,

For the past few days I've been having problems getting certain websites to load properly. Scripts and buttons in particular aren't working as usual. I have no idea what has caused it. It is the same on all browsers. I've tried everything I can think of including running Malwarebytes virus scans, Ccleaner and more. But the problem isn't being resolved. Here are some examples:

www.wikplayer.com - the music player script just beneath "Setup wizard" does not load, just stays stuck on the loading icon.
www.omegle.com - is extremely slow to load, and once it does the "what do you wanna talk about" box doesn't load at all, and the blue "Text" button is unresponsive.
www.jobsite.co.uk - the "job title or skill" and "location" boxes do not allow me to enter anything into them which prevents me from searching.

There are other cases where upload buttons on some websites are similarly unresponsive so I can't upload certain documents I need. This is preventing me from completing some important tasks. Does anybody have any idea what could be causing this? It seemed to start happening overnight but I haven't made any changes to my laptop as far as I'm aware.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks!

Our users have IE 7 and 8. We keep them locked into place by pointing IE to our firewall product (tools > internet options > connections > lan settings), so that only approved sites are the ones that our people can access.In the last few days, several of them report issues with specific websites loading very slowly - load times of over an hour just to get the log-in screen to appear.Troubleshooting Steps:1.) Unchecked the "use proxy server for your LAN" under the IE menus---> Site resolves instantly, as it should---> This pointed me to the direction that perhaps the site wasn't configured for our firewall2.) Re-checked the "use proxy server" box, and specifically configured the site in our firewall---> Site continues to resolve slowly, with the same load times as before performing step 1That would normally indicate that the problem is on the vendor's end. Something may be wrong with their site. And that's the line of thought I was pursuing until I was reported back to that the users are having the same problem on other websites. These new websites they're having problems with are, and have been for a long time, configured properly in the firewall.I'm not sure what my next step is to pursue. What am I looking for now? I don't know enough about networking to figure out where to track next.

All of a sudden tonight, my computer won't close programs by clicking on the X. The _ line won't minimize, and the box won't expand.

Also, for some reason, *some* pop-up boxes have blank buttons. i.e. The OK/cancel buttons aren't labled.

I have restarted many times. Run virus software.
*For some reason, I can't get the scan disk to schedule a scan.*
I've searched the internet for someone else that is having the same problem, but apparently it's just me.

The only way to close programs is through task manager, or to use File - close when available, etc.

My mouse is working fine for all other functions.

Anybody got a solution?

Currently working on a Dell Latitude E6500 laptop with a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64 and both the left and right trackpad buttons right-click.

I've checked the mouse settings in device manager as well as uninstalled and re-installed the driver.

I tried a second fresh installation of Win7 on a different HDD, same result.

The driver that Windows installed automatically wasn't the Dell trackpad driver, so I tried uninstalling the stock driver and installing the Dell trackpad driver. When I do this neither trackpad button works at all regardless of the settings.

Was hoping someone might have an idea or suggestion as to what I should try next? Thanks in advance, I appreciate your time.

Edit:

I had it taken apart a couple days ago and didn't notice anything odd or remarkable with the connections or cable.

The trackstick buttons (three above the touchpad) seem to function correctly regardless of which driver is installed.

Changing the settings to reverse right and left button function does change the behaviour of the right button to act as a left click.

A:Fresh Win7 install both buttons right click

If you hook up an external mouse, does it show the same behavior? This will let you know if it is software or hardware related.

Also, if i want to close the firefox window... pressing the left or right click works which is a problem with this touchpad. The scrolling of the touchpad however has no problem though. Would you guys suggest i sent this laptop back instead? If they send someone to come and repair it, they would have to open the laptop and i don't think that is good for the long run of Should i just request a new one instead?

I would assume i don't have to pay the extra $50 now correct? The battery life i notice is around 2 hours just web browsing.

My friend needs help. When he opens network connections, it's empty. When he resfreshes it, he gets this error: "The network connections folder was unable to retrieve the list of network adapters on your machine. Please make sure that the network connection service is enabled and running." He checked it and the network connections are enabled but he still can't use them. When he opens the user account in the control panel, it's blank.

When he goes to computer management, he cannot see the properties of any thing.

He is unable to drag and drop, copy and paste, double-click files and open them, and the only thing that you can see in the taskbar are the quick launch buttons. Program buttons appear above the taskbar only if u minimize them.

We've searched around for possible causes and some point it to the pseudo-Trojan FriendGreeting but my friend is pretty sure that he doesn't have the trojan since he never opened any email and he can't seem to find it in his computer.

Please help us!

Thanks

Some websites, for example:
http://www.colonialfirstate.com.au/ and
http://postbillpay.com.au

do not load in my newly installed IE7.

The error message says:

This program cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Check your Internet connection. Try visiting another website to make sure you are connected.
Retype the address.
Go back to the previous page.

But the same websites load OK in Firefox.

I have fiddled around with the security settings etc., but still no joy.

I did not have such a problem with IE6.

I also use Maxthon Browser from time to time. But since that is based on IE engine, even that will not show some websites.

Can somebody suggest a solution?

The only Firewall that I use is WinPatrol. I clean up Malware once in a while with AdAware SE.

A:Websites Will Not Load in IE, But Will Load in Firefox

Hello, This is not an answer to your question, I just wanted to say that 'WinPatrol' is not a firewall.

Just this morning I noticed that my browsers (usually Firefox, though I tried IE too) are automatically redirecting most of my webclicks to random websites and not working properly. I've been running my machine, a new Lenovo with Vista Home Premium with Symantec Anti-Virus and Windows Defender. After seeing the problem today, I tried installing Spyboy, Adaware and Malwarebytes and none would work properly. Adaware installed but I couldn't update it--I ran it as is and found a few cookies but nothing major. Malwarebytes seemed to install but when I clicked to open the application nothing happens. And Spybot wouldn't install at all.

I'm currently booted in safemode where I tried again and failed. I hope that's not a problem for the DDS files:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi and thanks in advance for your attention to this matter. When I do a search on google for instance, and click a link that I haven't clicked before, it will redirect me to a new site that has minimal relevance to what I was searching for. If I hit the back button and try the link a second time, it works fine. If I try another link, it redirects me again, hit back to try again and it works. There's obviously something going on here, but I can't find it, I've tried disabling items in the startup tab of msconfig, no help. This does not happen when I boot into safe mode, everything works fine.Please let me know if you require any more information, as I've done a lot of troubleshooting on this problem, so can include more info if needed.Here's the logs requested:DDS (Ver_10-03-17.01) - NTFSx86 Run by cohen at 17:37:43.05 on Wed 06/02/2010Internet Explorer: 7.0.5730.13Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.1279.720 [GMT -5:00]AV: Trend Micro Client-Server Security Agent AntiVirus *On-access scanning enabled* (Updated) {85427B0D-86B6-4BEB-A6D4-16CDB57A9F66}FW: Trend Micro Client-Server Security Agent Firewall *disabled* {85427B0D-86B6-4BEB-A6D4-16CDB57A9F66}============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\ibmpmsvc.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcsC:\...

Please Help!
When I open Google and click on a link, I am always redirected to random search engines and websites. When I click the back button, google loses the original info I entered to search for. This all happened after watching a tv show on my laptop. I have tried various scans and they all say everything is removed but clearly it isn't. I don't know what else to do.
I have a Dell Inspiron 700m and am operating with Windows XP.

Why is it that when I receive an email message that contains a website, I am unable to click on and enter that website?
 

A:Inability to click on and enter websites

Check to see if Internet Explorer is your default browser in Internet Options > Programs.

If that doesn't help, try repairing the URL Internet Shortcut association with the reg patch available here:

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hello, first of all i use chrome.
i watch videos all the time, but recently i am unable to play videos on some websites that i could play before. The video is loading like usual but i just cant click on play button as the playback area is faded and my clicks have no effect on it.

For example -
Watch One Piece Episode 167 English Subbed - WatchOP.com


i have seen this video on my laptop yesterday but i can't watch it today, i cant click on the play button.. it seemed like a flash player problem so i uninstalled flash player and re-installed again. Deleted cache and did browser cleanup. Scanned my pc for virus/malware or bad software. But nothing fixed this problem. Disabled hardware acceleration from flash player settings, but i still cant click on play button.

Before this problem, i could watch that video just by opening the link, didnt even need to click anywhere but it needs me to click on play now which i cannot. Please help me with the possible causes. I have tried everything from flash player troubleshooting guide..

A:Please help! Can't click on play button on some online websites.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Does the issue happen in IE as well?

Have you tried to do a full reinstall of Chrome?

What happens to videos on YouTube?
