I was looking at all my installed programs on my computer. I noticed that Java is not on the list, so that means it's not installed yet.
So I went to Java.com to download it. However, when I clicked "Agree and Start Free Download", Google Chrome (the web browser I was using) shows a fail page. Then I tried all the other web browsers installed on my computer, i.e. Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Opera. Unfortunately, they all showed fail pages as well.
Internet Explorer says "This page can't be displayed", Safari says "Safari can't open the page" with an error code of kCFErrorDomainWinSock:10054, Firefox says "The connection was reset", Opera says "This webpage is not available", and Google Chrome says the same thing as Opera ("This webpage is not available") with a different layout of text.
When I'm on the main/first page and put my cursor on a link (cursor won't turn into hand) then when I click it just started saying Opp's then top left circle spins then goes to a page to download something I don't want or bogus.
Another big problem, certain words will be highlighted and a window pop's up (different windows) and want allow me to go to the webpage I want.
This has been happening sense I purchased my new computer wit Win.8
Example: the words on the page highlighted is where I want to go, but a small window pops up and says Best cities to work or Free Local Job Search. Its has a icon to close the windows but when I do it will go to another download type page.
Is there a setting in IE or Firefox to turn that problem OFF ? See on this page there IS NOT a word that is highlighted and what I click I go to.
I am trying to open a webpage [URL] in my laptop (Acer) but am unable to open it after entering username and password.
I am able to open it from my another laptop (Dell).
All I am getting is continuous circling of java after entering my login details. In the laptop where it is getting opened, after entering my login details, I straightaway get a pop up of security warning of do you want to run this application - but not in where it is not getting opened. After entering my login credentials, Java message just keeps circling. I compared java in both laptops,microsoft silverlight package, adobe flash,shockplayer,internet options,firefox options but still unable to proceed further after entering my login details. OS is Windows 8.1,jave installed is latest both 32 and 64 bits.Java verify is detecting java working fine,java settings shows it is enabled in browser I already uninstalled anti-virus and tried but still no success so re-installed antivirus.
Every time I click on a browser it can take anywhere from 5-30 seconds or more to open now.Before you ask my computer is a gaming rig and has WELL beyond any normal hardware. When I click the browser icons on the task bar they light up like they normally do when they open. But after a few seconds they slowly fade away like they were closed.
But then after a sporadic number of seconds they open. No other program on my PC does. My PC boots pretty damn fast and everything else opens smooth as butter.I defrag and optimize it once a week and I clean it daily.
1) Why the resolution is so bad.
2) Not sure why there is a censor bar the first few seconds.
We bought a new computer for my granddaughter. Since non had Windows 7 on it, (which I know how to use). We had to buy one with Windows 8. Learning to find out how to remove All the ads and non needed programs has been an ongoing challenge. Right now she only wants to go to very few sites. but Ads along with false java download keep poping up on her browser even thou I tryed hunting down anything that might call them up
She has Mccaffee virus scan and regitpro (I think its called that , she is using pc at thistime so I cant check.)
Is there a way to block a url? These popups do not show up on my computer when I go to the same page as she is on. ITs like an online ad program it adds more ads to websites you visit that are not on the actual website.
Getting to grips with windows 8.1 on a new laptop having been used to XP Pro and Outlook Express
Anyway, I have a real bugbear with the mail app. e.g. I receive an email with an attachment, I click on attachment to open it, it opens in desktop (why?), once attachment has been read/filed or whatever and I close/delete it I'm stranded on the desktop (again why?), I then have to go through several button pushes (start/Mail app/mail account/open email) just to get back to where I was when I opened the email originally.
Surely there must be a simpler solution, am I missing something, is there a way to set it up so that when the attachment is closed it takes you straight back to where you were in the mail app?
Or is this just one of those Windows8 'quirks'......
After upgrading to Windows 8, the I.E. went to hiding, so I retrieved and pin it to task bar. Now, after I open it, it closes right away when I try to go onto a bookmark. The error message says "Internet explorer has stopped working" A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available".
After I launch IE11 and then close it(with all tabs), then I open the Task Manager on the Processes tab and there are 3 IE11 instances still open and no matter how many times I end these tasks, they'll immediately open again, consuming my ram AND CPU. That's why I started using Chrome. Still, I'd like to know what causes this bug with IE11 in 8.1.
I am using Windows 8. Is there a way that I can make a shortcut for Chrome that will open multiple URL's at once? I know how to make one that will open a single URL, but is there a way to open several? For example, can I make a shortcut on my desktop that will open google.com, facebook.com and twitter.com all at once.
I have a fairly new HP Pavilion Ultrabook 14-b011tx with windows 8. In the last few days I have started to have a problem if I tried to right-click on a picture in IE and use "save as" I get error 8007ffff. If I try to save the whole page I get an error that says unable to save webpage with no further explanation.
I have also noticed the file open/save dialogue will not appear in some programs - they just hang.
My 32 bit Enterprise install was fine before lunch. I shut it down and then rebooted some while later and find that every click I do on IE gives this warning. Malware ? I can't find anything and so I thought that restoring to a previous disk image would resolve it for sure.
Opening IE and just displaying any of my three home tabs (outlook, Bing and Google) and the warning is still there. I'm at a loss with this one. One to look at again tomorrow I think.
If I accept the warning and say yes nothing happens. But it doesn't go away.
I just bought this new Asus VivoTab Smart. The MS Windows Explorer works fine, it was already on the Start screen. I added 2 ordinary Google search engines, (one in the UK) to the Start screen. (Neither was a Google Chrome). When I try to use either one of them I get this message: "There is a problem with the website's security certificate". Now I have the same thing on my laptop & have had no such problem with them. This is Windows 8.
We're having an issue on Dell Latitude 10 tablet which seems to be hard to resolve. I've configured Windows reader as default program for all PDF files. When opening PDF files in a Powerpoint presentation the following Microsoft Office notification pops up:
Opening XXX Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer. It is important to be certain that this file is from a thrustworthy source. Would you like to open this file? OK/CANCEL
When clicking OK, the file opens. It is asked every time when opening a PDF link in the presentation. Same issue when you configure Adobe reader touch as default. When setting Adobe Reader XI as default, you don't get the message. But then, we don't want the files to open in that last one.
We've been searching to resolve this in the powerpoint options e.g., but without success.
When you try to delete WLM messages you get this error
"An unknown error has occurred" and the message cannot be deleted.
People with this problem, often need to delete multiple messages or entire folders. That error appears because WLM only thinks it has that/those message(s), but actually that message is nowhere to be found in the the Windows email folders. The message exists no longer, but WLM still shows it as being in its own folders and you simply cannot delete it using the normal procedure.
For the easier way, one can drag the unwanted and non-existing emails to the Deleted Items folder, one by one. However, that is crazy when you have to get rid of hundreds or thousands of them (yes, I had that situation!).
This is how to trick WLM if you want to delete multiple emails giving you that error:
1. We try to simulate forwarding multiple messages. Select multiple emails by clicking on one and then using SHIFT to click and select multiple concatenated messages. Do that screen after screen (scroll down/up). Stop when you see the FORWARD button has become grey. That means one email is even more stubborn and doesn't even want to be forwarded.
2. Hold the SHIFT key and click the messages up and down until you find the culprit. It will be just outside your selection, when your selection manages to un-grey the Forward button.
3. With a lot of messages selected and concatenated, click on the Forward button. You'll get another error message "One or more messages could not be attached. Select OK to continue creating the note." Click Cancel.
4. Now something has unblocked those messages (or message information) and, with the selection on, you can Delete them by simply clicking the Red X (delete) button.
5. The message that made the Forward button grey, can now be deleted as well.
6. Keep doing that until you finish the bunch of messaged you wanted to delete when you got the initial error.
When I tried to open Internet Explorer I got this error? I scanned my PC with Malwarebytes, Hitmanpro & Avast & did not get any virus/malware detection & also did sfc/scannow but, nothing corrupted was found....earlier today,I uninstalled a media player & fixed system errors with Advanced System Care (been using it for a long time & never had any problems like these with any RTM Windows)....... I don't really use internet explorer.......
When I try and play Batman Arkham Origins or Bioshock Infinite, it gives me an application error 0x000007b. I've reinstalled both, reinstalled the visual c++ components. I've done a sfc /scannow and I have the sfcdetails.txt here. I really wish to play these games, as I was able to play them both for a bit then they stopped working. The problem could be with more than just those two things, I just haven't played everything since it's started.
I just downloaded Adobe reader 11, and have been trying to open pdf files from the "My Documents" folder. Specifically files that I have just written and saved from MS Word. Adobe says: "There was an error opening this document. Access denied." However, if I save the file into the Downloads folder, it will open no problem.
Whenever, I try double-clicking an Excel file in Windows Explorer, I get an error message that says "There was a problem sending the command to the program." I tried Microsoft's solution of unchecking the box under options that says "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)" but it was already unchecked. I checked it and unchecked it and I'm still having the problem. This is using Excel 2013 with Windows 8.1 64-bit.
I was using my Gmail account with the Windows 8 Mail App and it was all working fine until I updated it through the store yesterday (I haven't updated it before so I don't know what version of the app I am now using). Today when I try and access my folders I just getting a message saying 'no messages from the last 2 weeks', meaning I cannot access all those useful emails that I have kept on purpose without using gmail through chrome. I have looked through the settings and cannot find if there is a way to change this - is there? Or can I un-install the update and just go back to using the old version, and if so, how would I do this.
When ever I click a mailto link in either Chrome, IE, Firefox and Opera it opens up a new chrome browser window. Before I installed windows 8 I had it opening up Outlook 2010 new email, now it opens up a new Chrome browser window.
How do I change it in windows 8 to when I click a link in any browser to open up Outlook 2010 new email as it did before?
