Try Resetting Internet Explorer to its default settings. This removes all changes made to Internet Explorer since it was installed, but does not eliminate your bookmarks or feed. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Close all Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer in Windows.
2. Click Start, And then click Internet Explorer.
3. In Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu and then click Internet Options.
4. Click the Advanced tab and then click Reset.
5. In the readjustment of Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
6. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK twice.
7. Close Internet Explorer and then reopen it.

If resetting Internet Explorer to its default settings does not fix the problem, uninstall Internet Explorer 8 and then reinstall it. Also run AdAware, scanned for viruses, disable 3rd party, disable microsoft firewall, and check for BHO's.

I cant wacth net flix they say i need a down load from microsoft and my browser is out of date


Download the latest version of Internet Explorer from the following Link:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

Alternately you may download other free internet browsing software such as Firefox from:

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ie.html

Both softwares do the same thing.....browse the internet. You can keep your version updated by selecting 'Check for Updates' from the Tools or Help menu of the respective softwares. It's always good to utlizing the free updates so that your viewing experience evolves with the latest media experiences.

My google does not work i get a warning please


Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)

Please if you are using another IP-adress (proxy) that your own, be carefull, try to chance it back to your own IP-adress.

Maybe your Internet explorer/ computer is infected, you can try these thing :

1. download and install Firefox/portable here and to Google and see if it still happens :

Firefox (installer) :
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html

Firefox (portable, you can have it on a USB storage or only in a folder):
http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

IF Google is working with Firefox, probably it is Internet explorer that is corrupted/infected, then you have to uninstall and reinstall it or just Upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 (much better and faster).
Internet Explorer 8 :
http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/internet-explorer/

IF your Google show you warnings also in Firefox browser, please return here, then I will try to help you remove the infection/virus.

Facebook closes Internet explorer


try using a different browser and see if it's doing the same thing. if you're using internet explorer, you can download firefox at www.mozilla.com or google chrome. if it's doing the same thing, the problem is with your computer, not with facebook.

Closing Multiple Windows


Are you using internet explorer?

Internet explorer is unable to handle many windows open at the same time.

My suggestion is to use Mozilla Firefox which can be downloaded for free which is safer and has much fewer errors than IE. Please update me on the situation and what internet browser you are using and I will work with you until the problem is fixed.
