Preferred Solution: Firefox, Ie7 And Pinball Game, Firefox.exe And Internet Explorer.exe.

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

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?

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.

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.

John

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.

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.

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?

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.

Hey I'm having a problem with both web browsers. First internet explorer is constantly opening by itself and then crashing instantly giving me the "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close." message, and this just happens constantly over and over, a pop up every few minutes. I've tried to open Firefox and I get the same message only it doesn't open by itself.

I recently got infected with malware and I think I've deleted them all, they were the Vungo Trojan and something called Maldefense. Malware bytes said it deleted Vungo and Maldefense but I'm not so sure. I'm currently using Windows XP Home Edition. I've also run CC cleaner but this did not help at all, currently I'm getting the pop ups now as I type this. Any help is appreciated as I have no idea how this happened.

I do not have much time at the moment(got to go to work). Pretty deperate at this time. 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. Seems like something is missing or disconnected. Wiring is fine. I have ran virus and spy checkers..no difference. Could anyone have a clue what might be missing, filewise? I have a 370n Media Center, 2,8 gighz, 512 ram.....Thankyou!
e-mail is since the other one, kwic .com seems not to be working...can't tell!
 

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

eddie

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.

internet explorer opens up unexpectedly and frequently. Firefox has ads popping up (when popup blocker is turned on). When I try to download any antivirus software, the "virus"(?) wont let me go through with the download. When I try going to a virus scan website, such as housecall or pctools, the website wont open up. Something is stopping me from trying to get rid of the problem.

Hi,I have bad news for you I see you're dealing with Virut on top of the other nasty malware you are dealing with. In that case, it's unfortunately a lost case - Game over situation and a format and reinstall is the fastest and especially the safest solution.You may want to read this why: Virut and other File infectors - Throwing in the Towel? So, I suggest you to start backup all of your valuable data/documents/pictures/movies/songs/etc.. Do NOT backup any applications/installers and Do NOT backup any .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar files...This because these files may be infected as well. If you back them up and replace them afterwards, it will infect your computer again.Read here for instructions how to format and reinstall Windows: http://web.mit.edu/ist/products/winxp/adva...all-format.html

Since earlier today I have been getting Internet Explorer popups mostly for games and gambling. One of them appeared to be promoting AVG which I have. The popups cannot be closed except by Windows Task Manager (control alt delete). Within a session the popups return after they have been closed. I would not know whether they are classed as adware, spyware or whateverware and I don't know anything about software to combat this problem. I have AVG and I ran it but the popups still come back and I am not even sure if the AVG window I see is not itself some kind of nastyware.

Hi Everyone,I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP2 and all updates installed and I'm not sure what my problem actually is but it started about two weeks ago when my system had crashed after four back to back power failures within less that one minute. I had to take my PC to the shop because it got stuck in some kind of endless loop where it just kept rebooting over and over and my so-called rescue disk didn't want to work for some reason. The counter tech that checked out my machine when I brought it in said that I was going to have to do a system restore to get it working again so I had them do a data recovery for me so that I wouldn't be losing a lot of stuff that I can't replace.That data recovery was supposed to have been done that day and my PC was supposed to have been ready for me to pick it up the following evening. Well I finally got my machine back five days later after having received several different excuses as to why the data recovery hadn't been completed during that period of time.When I got my machine home, hooked everything up, turned it on and was getting ready to do the much dreaded system restore... when Windows started up by its self. For some reason the Windows CHKDSK program [I think that is what it was called] had started to run. I let it run all the way through and Windows opened on its own once that program had finished running.Needless to say I was surprised by this happening but glad that I wasn't going to have to go ahead with the system re...
