Can't Open Certain Websites - Three Diffrent Browsers Are Not Working

Feb 15, 2006

I have a couple networked computers and on one I can't open a particular website but I can open it on the other

it's http://www.efax.com and for the life of me, it won't open on one of my PCs. I have tried 3 different browsers on the PC: Explorer / Firefox / Opera and none of them can open efax.com on the one PC......I am able to open other websites on that PC, however, when I get a page that occassionally doesn't open now, I am wondering if there is something amiss on the one PC......I still can not open http://www.efax.com

I'm so frustrated and confused. Please any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Unable To Open Websites While Using Internet Explorer 6?

Jun 23, 2006

I have begun experiencing problem with IE6 not displaying pages for any url or IP address entered in the address bar.This occurs when there is an Internet connection (dial up). The browser will display web pages from files on the computer. (Windows XP sr2)I have concluded that this is an IE related problem, since Netscape 7.2 works properly.When I open IE6 with an Internet connection, the title bar indicates that my default homepage is (will be) displayed. There is no url shown in the address bar and no information displayed in the status bar. The mouse hourglass icon is displayed for as long as the browser is left open.

Internet Connection Is Extremely Slow: Wont Open Websites?

Apr 4, 2010

The problem I've got is this. About a week ago I noticed that I was struggling with internet access. Wifi connects to a known router no problem but actually accessing sites can be a pain. I often have to refresh multiple times in the browser (happens in Firefox, Chrome and Opera) to get it to finally load the page. MSN also struggles to connect, as do the likes of Dropbox and anti-virus. Most web pages / resources do finally load up if I try enough times but it's very, very time-consuming

Open With Programs Not Working?

Jul 22, 2009

I have a file with a non-windows extension (.LUP to be precise) which doesn't have an associated Windows-specific program. I have got a program called HexEdit (simple Hex and ASCII editor) which I didn't install (since it came from a colleague in a folder with just the .exe and files needed to run the program) and so Windows didn't populate the "Open With" programs menu with the program. When I try to add it (by Browsing for the .exe in the "Open With" menu) I click on the .exe, and click "OK" yet it doesn't get added to the list. I then tried to add the shortcut to the program to this list, but then I get the error message "[This program] is not a valid Win32 application". I've added the shortcut to the Programs folder in the Start Menu, yet still to no avail.So my 2 questions are: 1) How can I get rid of the shortcut which has now appeared in the "Open With" programs menu? and 2) Is there a way to get this .exe file to appear in this list (possibly by some Registry hack) without installing any 3rd-party programs (since IT at the company I work at gets really shirty about that sort of thing)?

Explorer Open With Is Not Working Correct If More Then One

Jun 20, 2005

I have tested it on more then 5 computers with Windows XP Professional on it, with different applications on it. I got every time the same result. What I do: I select 2 or more files in the explorer by holding the CTRL or shift key. These files are all from the same type. Then do a right mouse click and select "Open With" What I get: I get at first for the first selected file a folder selection window with the headline MOVE. I cancel this action, then I get a 2nd folder selection window now with the headline COPY. I cancel this window again. Then I get the Program Selection Window I expect. I select for example Paint Shop Pro. Any other program has the same outcome. The program will start like expected. But now I must handle this procedure for any file I have previous selected inside the explorer. And the program will start again and
again.

IE Open Twice Using Upto 8 Gig Of Ram - Not Acceptable Working

Apr 2, 2010

Ever since I loaded MS-IE-8, I have found that '2' copies of IE open in Task Manager... I run a DELL-D800 (yes 7yrs old) w/ XP-sp3 and 1Gig RAM. With IE open twice - it is using upto .8Gig of RAM (not acceptable). Today (2010/04/02)I tried Google Chrome instead of IE - the first time it opened with only one copy in TskMgr - the second time it too now has 2 copies open... It went from blazing fast to as slow or slower than IE... And all the problems with IE are now returning with Chrome... What is causing this? Virus? Bug? Normal process?

Random Restart With ALL Browsers

Jan 18, 2009

I hope someone can help me. I have a computer (compaq presario 5300 US) with 512 mem and 1.1 ghz proc. The machine runs fine and will run for days unless I go to the internet with any web browser, IE 6-8beta, Opera, Firefox etc. Generally it will access the net ok, but when it encounters a page running any Java, it seems to accumulate errors then just goes black and restarts.No blue screen, no dumps, just black and a full restart. Sometimes it takes several minutes of running the program, such as a game called Brick Blaster found on the Zoomtown site. I have played this game for 5 minutes before the restart, or it can restart after the game first starts to load. I have found some Java errors using the OPera debug reporter but cannot make any sense out of them.I have installed a new Power Supply, changed out my ram strips, done a ram test, done a cpu stress test, scanned for viruses. Nothing found in any case. I am about to toss the machine in the trash, except it belongs to one of my best friends and for him, money is very tight.

IE Won't Bring Up Site Whereas Other Browsers Do

Mar 6, 2007

There is one particular website that I have been clicking on successfully in my Favorites for quite awhile. Now it will not connect. Often it will attempt to throw me into Acrobat Reader or just hang. Even when I Google the site and click on their link it will do the same thing. So far I haven't discovered any other site that acts this way. When I use another browser I connect easily. I certainly would appreciate any suggestions for a fix.

Display Settings Effect Browsers

Apr 30, 2006

Both browsers (IE and Firefox) display pages with no background on one of my computers (Sony laptop running WinXP SP1.) I have two more computers on the same wireless network and there is no problem there. Everything works fine on the machine in question, except of this problem. Since the problem is the same in TWO browsers, I think it might be some wrong setting in XP. Attached are screen shots from two of my computers. The image on top is how a web page looks on one of my other computers and the image at the bottom shows the problem I have on the machine in question. Every single Site (not just this one) looks like the bottom image, BOTH in IE and Firefox, on this machine. This looks as if some "global" command "do not show background" is set, but, as far as I know, there's no such command.

Browsers And Pidgin Died When Installed Router

Jul 2, 2010

It all started about a week ago when i upgraded at home from cable modem + router to a Cisco combo provided by the ISP - Cisco EPC2425. We have 5 PC's running locally - 2 physical and 3 wireless, and out of them my PC is the one with the problem, the rest are just fine - i'm typing this from one of the laptops.I run XP Pro SP2 Version 2002. The PC is a E6300 with 2x2GB of DDR2 800 ram, motherboard is Gigabyte EP31-DS3L, and video is a Leadtek 8600GT.I use the same software for close to 2yrs now - only difference is the AV which has been Kaspersky 2010 for 3months.I use the XP firewall.As browsers i use the latest Firefox with NoScript and the latest Opera.The problem was that soon after we put in the new combo my browsers died. Pidgin has issues, Opera actually manages to check a page.I have tried repairing the connection, uninstalling the connection, uninstalling the LAN, disabling noscript, changing my DNS - it is taken automatically from the router and the router has DHCP and i'm not really sure that i managed to change it either, and even reinstalling the OS. Reinstalling the OS seemed to fix the problem, i did not have it for almost 5 days, but all of the sudden, it's back, and it wasn't simply in full effect, it was gradual. It started as pages taking longer to load, having to refresh constantly to get them to work and after a restart, they stopped working altogether, yet Opera is still working - not sure for how long though.MMO's work, WoW and EVE have no issues on the affected PC.I'll try to be a bit more clear. Router was installed, my browsers died, everything that would require a DNS died, and so did pidgin - i use google and MSN on it. I reinstalled the OS, and it worked fine for 5 days, than it started again. Current status is MSN not functioning, Firefox not functioning, Google talk functioning 50% of times, and Opera still functioning - not sure for how long.PS: No, i did not have norton installed.
