Webbrowser- Changes between Vista and XP

Q: Webbrowser- Changes between Vista and XP


I'm running:
a)Vista 64BIT and UAC is turned off with IE8 and
b)Win XP 32 bit with IE 6

Under b) I can display a specific webpage (which includes som JS and Ajax) without any problems
Under a) I can't display the page

Are there any known security issues? Do I enable some security settings within Vista or IE8?


Preferred Solution: Webbrowser- Changes between Vista and XP

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: Webbrowser- Changes between Vista and XP

IE8 is still buggy, i would recommend that you use IE7. However, what page won't it load? What security software is installed?

Hey all. I'm currently using IE 6 and wanted to try out some other browsers since I heard IE has a bunch of security holes, slower, etc. What I wanted to know is, which browser do you like the best? I'm thinking about buying Opera 7 but I don't know yet. And I don't mind buying. Well, I gotta sleep and I'll check this tomorrow. Thanks in Advance.

I have several browsers loaded into my system, the most compatable one to use with my computer is the internet explorer. There is a problem of a pornographic add informing me that I have been infected and prompting me to buy their spyware equipment, this happens each time I try to use this home site page. I have spyware protection, spyware bot, and AOL McA.,and sweep the system upon each internet return. This page still remains. I need access to run certain files that are a part of my main system, It's not the best, just needed. I keep this site blocked by default, to keep my family from prompting this site and encountering porn related strong-armed sales tatics. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have tried deleting these 2 files but it will reoccurred once I on IE again, is there a way to remove them completely??

Hi, I hope someone can help me.

I have Norton Internet Security 2003, and use As-aware on a regular basis.

Hi Everyone

I am trying to fix a friend's computer. He had 4 trojans on his pc that he found in January and didn't tell anyone. He is running OS: xp pro 1a.......RAM: 512......cant remember the information about his hard drive except it's an AMD.

The error message he is getting is this:

"cannot open web browser, error message "Downloading from site:res//C\WINDOWS\System32\shdolc.dll/offcancl.htm"

I have tried system restore, it will dont work for him, also tried a reinstall of windows, still no go. I tried to run hijack but it will not read from his floppy disk. I will try to save hijack to a cdrom and run it when I go there on Tuesday.

I would appreciate any suggestions that you can give me. You guys are always so helpful. Thank you.


A:Webbrowser Won't Load

Install avast home edition on your friends pc from a cd rom or jump drive and then run avast antivirus. Get rid of the Trojans then go to firefox and get rid of his IE or Netscape.

This worked for me, but someone else may have a better idea.

If you use the "search" feature of this forum you will find this question has been asked before. I went to Google and typed in "SHDocVwCH" without the quote marks and I found where this happens if you are using a browser other than IE. If you use IE to access the site you are looking for it should work just fine. Are you using AOL or Netscape?

Hey, I am having trouble with some ad-ware and I can't for the life of me figure out what exactly it is or how to get rid of it.

Basically, I get this progam called NULL WebBrowser open (can be seen in attachment) and about 10 minutes later, it floods my screen with popups from adultfriendfinder. I'll close all of them including this "NULL" program, however, it will reappear in some time.

I've run Lavasoft ad-aware, Spybot and the online Trend-Micro scanner - nothing has removed this. Searching on google, I cannot seem to find information about it. Any help?

Thanks in advance

Hey guys,
I'm looking for a very lightweight browser that has minimal system impact while gaming + streaming.

I'm streaming a 720p/45fps stream and game performance is nice so long as I do not have my addon-heavy Firefox browser open. I suspect it's the annoying flash that has the severe system resource penalties.

I need those addons on that browser to be productive so I'll need either a Firefox lite mode which can be launched with the click of button (without hassle), or a completely different browser that supports Flash.

I only need that browser to watch the quality of my stream, and to chat with my viewers + browsing lulz pages during my downtime (1+5~tabs=).
Or can I bypass this in another way?
I currently have process priority manager where I have set flash and plugin container to 'low' priority. But this doesn't really help for that particular issue.

Flash is not generally slowing the system down from get-go, but after several minutes; while having my own stream feedback open and playing: the system slows down.
Soon as I close my browser, performance is back up.

W7 x64
GTX670M, i7 3610, Browser & Game on SSD (128gb - 90%)

edit, add:
Oh, and I'm looking for qualified experience opinions in general.

A:Lightweight webbrowser with flash

Perhaps try SlimBoat portable:

Best Web Browser for Mac, Linux and Windows. Fastest Cross-platform Internet Browser.

Configuration can be a little confusing!

Opera Portable 64bit vs Cyberfox 64bit vs SlimBoat Portable 32bit
Memory usage - all of the above with one tab open. Opera and SlimBoat both run from folders on desktop

Memory usage - Cyberfox (installed) one tab open, Opera (run from desktop) one tab open,
SlimBoat (run from folder on RAMdisk) five tabs open.

Start using flash and Memory usage roughly doubles.

I have a very strange error, if you can call it that. It's mostly occurring at random AFAIK, but when it happens it keeps going for quite a while.

The problem is; when I click a link anywhere, the browser(firefox in my case) might decide to not load it. There's no error page, the spinning thingy doesn't even spinn. And it won't load unless I click the correct amount of times(usually more than 2). Too many and it resets the counter.

As this is a laptop, I've moved between school and home, this occurs at both places so I narrowed the search down to my computer.

I'm having problems checking my email. I go onto hotmail, and when I look at my inbox, my entire webbrowser closes out. What's up with that?

The only thing I did prior to that happening, is I was creating a rule for my Outlook box to delete messages with certain texts in the subject heading. But Outlook, on my computer, does not even connect to my hotmail account.

I doubt that's what caused it, but now I can't check my email with my computer.

Hi Everyone!I have obtained this Elitebook 8560W and itīs running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. The laptop has dedicated quickkeys on the top right corner. I want to change the "internet" key to open Chrome instead of Edge /IE. I have changed the default app in the Windows setting to Chrome. This did not do anything to the key. I have removed both Edge and IE from windows and the key is now unresponsive. How can I modify this to open Chrome? Can anyone help me with this? //Chri11e

I have tried several adaware removal programs (adware 6.0, scan spyware, BPS spyware adaware remover), but all don't seem to work.i have also tried the suggestions from http://www.boredguru.com/modules/articles/...php?storyid=130, but since it does not appear to be websearch.com, they are of no use.I have also attached a pic of my screen with the search bar.

I have an application which embed IE Webbrowser to display a Rich text editor based on CKEditor (which web based editor). But, on my computer it does not work because the policy security_HKLM_only is set to 1.
I've tried to reproduce on machine which I have administrator rights, when I set the key to 1, the editor does not work anymore and when I set the value to 0, it works fine.
I displayed the user agent of webbrowser by adding to my page this script: alert(navigator.userAgent);
The output:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; Trident/7.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; SLCC2; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET 4.0C; .NET4.0E)

And the script: alert(document.documentMode); has the following output: 5.
I tried also to set my process in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION to 0x2AF9 (IE11) but it does not work.

When I test on IE (not embedded  browser) it works fine.
Do you have any idea why the behavior is different between the IE and embedded webbrowser? and if there are some ways to bypass this behavior?

Thank you.

I have started getting popups, search engine tool bars insert into my web browser, and my computer has slowed noticably. I saw a similar post by another user and I think I have a similar problem. I ran Hijackthis and removed a few references to "searchportal" (something like that). That took care of the hijacked webbrowser problem but I still have very poor performance. Also I notice that when I use alt + tab to switch between windows sometimes I notice that an icon for Java on the screen (even though I haven't opened Java). Can you help me get rid of whatever is affecting my computer?

Developer Community Visual studio. I am unable to post links with my account to it. it has an id of 642834
On some computers I can with a very simple .net application cause a silent crash of the whole application by attempting to print using the WebBrowser component. On those computers I get the same behaviour when attempting to print using Internet Explorer.
In a simple application where I've dragged out a button and a WebBrowser in the Visual Studio designer I add the following in the code behind

public partial class Form1 : Form

private void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

with the button click event being bound to Button1_Click of course.
This causes a crash. Looking in the Event Viewer I see the following message at the same time of the crash.

I've had som big issues recently with trojans and spyware.
I use NOD32 (bought and legal) and it blocks the same trojans every day, the only one I can remember the name of right now is PrivacySet.B or something like that.

I get constant pop-ups, my webbrowser (firefox) stops loading pages now and then specially searchengines like Google stop working for me.

I performed the 5 steps you required before posting.

Step 1: Done, none of the programs were found.
Step 2: Ran the Pandasearch, it disinfected 3 files I think. It found a total of 25-30 infections including Virtumonde.
Step 3: Installed both the applications.
Step 4: Could not update, it says Code: 80070422 wich is weird, as I am logged in as Administrator on the only account in windows vista that I have.
Step 5: Ran Deckard's System Scanner and posted the main.txt log below and attached the extra.txt.

The usually innocuous ads on my browser get replaced with very explicit ones. I downloaded several free malware search programs but I can't run them because they all fail to update when I first start them. If I try to paste the update url's into a webbrowser then I find that access is blocked.
Sounds like a very cunning piece of malware if it truly prevents me from downloading something to attack it with. I also noticed that when connecting to other sites I often see a 'resolving proxy' message before it eventually connects. Sounds like I have been hijacked. I have attached my dds file.

Thanks in advance for looking in to this.

Since moving over to Vista (on my laptop) a few weeks ago I have run into a strange issue:

If I turn on my laptop while it is undocked it will boot up normally (about 1 minute usually) and will shutdown normally. If I then dock the laptop and turn it on it takes about 10 minutes to boot to the login screen. When I then log in my dual monitors are reversed, the resolutions have changed, and the icons are scattered all over the screen. Anyone else experience an issue like this? Any suggestions to correct this? I know Vista did away with hardware profiles (which might be causing the problem)

Here is what I'm running (there's 2 of us running the exact same specs and experiencing the same problem):
OS: Windows Vista Enterprise
Dell Latitude D630
Intel Core 2 Duo T7500
2 gigs of RAM

Any help is appreciated, let me know if you need any more info

According to Windows You are not able to upgrade from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows Vista Business.

I wanted to join one of our developers to our domain, unfortunately this developer has a machine running Windows Vista Home Premium. We have a license to Windows Vista Business. After reading the website above it is not possible to upgrade, only to do a clean install.

This is not an option for the company since we have some serious deadlines to meet.

I started doing research online for cloning solutions but the question is rather complex to put in a search query.

In essence this is what I am trying to do.

Install a cloning software to make a copy of the hard drive.
Do a clean install from Home Premium to Windows Business.
Use cloning software to put all applications, user's settings, etc exactly the way it was before installing Windows Business without any conflicts.

Will there be any conflicts (i.e. with the registry) or anything else, since the applications where installed in Windows Vista Home and now they are running in Windows Vista Business?

What is the best (if possible free) cloning software that I could use to clone the developer's stuff?

Is this even possible?

I appreciate any help I can get. I just started this job and don't want to let my bosses down.


Thank you very much!
