Costumize the Quickweb Key to preffered webbrowser

Q: Costumize the Quickweb Key to preffered webbrowser

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 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.)

Hi! So I recently acquired a Compaq Presario CQ57 laptop (running Windows 7) from my brother and when I started it up it went into QuickWeb, but I exited out of it because I didn't know what it was, but after researching it to find out what it IS, I decided I wanted to try it out.

Except, I have no idea how to get back into it. When I had turned it on I was in the middle of wiping the keypad off and hit a button and BAM! QuickWeb. The problem is, I have no idea what button I pushed to get it. I've looked it up via Google but it doesn't really help me. It tells me to press the QuickWeb button when the comp is off or in Hibernation mode, but I have no idea what the QuickWeb button is. I even tried going into the... um, area that you get to after pressing F10 repeatedly? Yeah, that place, but there was nothing in there I could find to 'enable' (which the website told me I could do via that part of the system).

It's not like I HAVE to try it out or anything, I'm just curious how to get in and out of it, because I'd like to see what it does, if I'd like it, etc... but I have no idea how to get back into QuickWeb. I hope there is a painless way to do so, if not, it's no big loss.

Thank you! =)

When i turned on the laptop it goes directly to HP Quickwebs. I've tried using various F key functions to go to BIOS but nothing works. I've also tried windows+b and nothing loads up other than HP quickeweb. I have also tried to "go to windows" option within HP quickweb and it loads the same thing again and again. I have read upon an earlier post regarding the same issue but it doesn't seem to work in my case. Currently stuck is the pesky program.

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.

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

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 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.

Hello all,

I was recently victim to the VIRUS PROTECT scam. Thanks to the posts herein, I believe I successfully removed most of the malware. However, I still have a persistent and sporadic bug that redirects my web search links to a rogue url. Here is an example of an attempt to link to search result from "cod liver oil" :

(http://alfasort.com/search.php?q=cod%20liver%20oil )

The alfasort string is the ubiquitous prefix. I am using Microsoft's Internet Explorer. I am running Kaspersky Internet Security suite.

Can anyone here graciously offer some direction on how to eliminate this annoyance?

Thank you.

Hello, recently my web browser. On google whenever I search for something I click the link and it would take me to a website called daytotals.com, I close that and try the link again and it would take me to another website. This has been happening for the past week or 2 and I have gotten quite sick of this.
I've tried spyware searches, malware, anti-virus scans and everything. They haven't found anything, even if they do it doesn't fix up my problem.

Im using C# under Visual Studio .NET 2003 for Windows 2000. Im trying to use the MS WebBrowser control on my form but without much luck. Documentation is sh*t.

Im connecting to a URL which is in frames (frame one's name="one", frame two's name="two"). I need to access the first frame's HTML contents, in particular, the <form name="myForm"> area which has the element <input name="ConnectID" type=text>. I would like to alter the "ConnectID" value as well as programmtically click the form's SUBMIT button.

How do I do all of this with the WebBrowser control, or the IHTML interface.

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 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.

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
public Form1()

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.
