Web Pages Opens In A New Windows Every Time
Using IE6, is there anyway I can stop a new web page opening up everytime I click on a link? For example, when i was browsing this forum, every different thread i clicked on opened a new window instead of just opening in the exisiting one.

Opening Web Pages Taking Long Time To Load?
I believe I have a virus but I can't seem to find information about it. I am unable to clear it up when I run virus checks either.What's happening is this. When ever I open a web page (aol is my home page with ie as my brower) the page takes forever to load and then just after it does load I get a message saying "We're sorry, the content you requested is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later." My computer is also EXTREMELY slow to load pages - pages that use to load within 5 seconds (like when checking email) can take 5 minutes to open, if it opens at all.

Slow Network Connection Takes Time To Logical Hard Disks To Appear
I have two computers running WinXP; the others run Win2K. When I attempt to see the file system in Explorer of one of the WinXP machines by clicking on "Computers Near Me"/Computer Name, it takes about a minute for the list of logical hard disks to appear. This is true no matter which of the other computers this one is accessed from. No other computer behaves like this. When I click on another computer name in Explorer, the list of hard disks appears almost instantaneously. Moreover, only one installation of WinXP behaves like this -- the one with a clean install of WinXP; the WinXP installation that is an upgrade of Win2K displays its logical hard disks very quickly. Once the list of logical disks appears, clicking on one entry produces a list of the folders in the root directory almost instantaneously.

Running Dreadfully Slow / Fire Fox Takes Long Time To Open Tab
Every thing runs pretty slow, Firefox takes 5+ seconds to switch tabs, Thunderbird takes almost that long to open messages, Gaim's buddy list scrolling is extremely slow, Paint Shop Pro/Gimp/Photoshop filters take almost double the time they do on my other weaker IBM (see computer specs). It's just terribly slow.

System Takes Too Much Time To Boot
Alright, so I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop that runs Windows XP. It's a rather old computer, a few years old, but when I got it the specs were on the high end. Not top notch, par se, but certainly good. Now, however, I have a problem with it: It is agonizingly slow (I should, perhaps, also point out that it wasn't nearly this slow when I first got it...).

System Takes A Long Time To Logon
A) After I type in my password to go into my desktop, I here the intro windows music sound thing. But it takes about 20 seconds for the desktop to finally show up. Can the answer be found in the hijackthis log that is just below? Can you please tell me if according to the log there is any other problem?

I thought I took really good care of my computer. Bought it this year February (fujitsu lifebook n6010). Run adaware, spybot search & destroy, crapcleaner, registry mechanic, registry fix, diskclean up (only compress old files), and defrag about every 2 weeks

Cannot Access Some Web Pages
I recently had to have my computer completely restored due to a virus. I lost everything on my computer. Now when I try to access yahoo chat rooms I can't get in. I can get to the chat room itself but when I click on the verification link nothing happens. This has happened on a couple other sites also. I'm not sure how to fix this problem.

IIE7 Will Not Allow To View Web Pages
This problem has presisted for about a week now, my IE7 will not allow me to view web pages, however, if I were to type in the address bar, I am rerouted to google and I'm given search results for When I click on the result I get the "IE cannot display web page error". I've done several system restores, I've deleted the security update 94453 like some recommended, I've turned off my firewall, done spyware checks, virus scans, and have come to find out nothing wrong with it. My laptop is able to surf the net just fine so it has something to do with my computer, but I am not sure what. Was wondering if anyone has had this happen, and if anyone could help. THanks in advance!

Web Pages Are Not Filing The Whole Of The Screen
I have noticed lately that web pages are not filing the whole of the screen. Each time a new web page opens I have to maximise it, which is a pain. I have the same problem with Word, which when opened occupies roughly the same proportion of the screen as is seen in the print preview setting.

SP2 And IE - Web Pages Stop Loading
Since I installed SP2 everything seems OK except I now notice that some web pages will load only part way then stop loading. If I use Firefox and go the same page it loads immediately. Is there some security setting I should aware of that prevents some pages from loading? The last page I had a problem with was one associated with Paint Shop Pro - hardly a suspicious website. I like Firefox, but unfortunately my password manager (Norton) doesn't work with it.

Dell OptiPlex Restarts At Certain Web Pages
I do computer work for a library system. One library that I dread going to because these dell machines have been a headache for me. The problem started last year when the machines would just restart on there own when surfing the web. Tried to upgrade the machines from Win98 to XP problem still there. I then did a fresh install of the machine ran all the updates (before SP2 came out) and did everything I could think of. The machines were working with no problems. UNTIL one of them last week crashed, bad HDD. So I put a new Western Digital 40GB HDD in and did a clean install ran all the updates and installed Office XP with no problems. The machine was on for 6 hours running fine. Then I went to a website called and it just shutdown. With in a half of an second it shut completely down. Now the weird thing is that it doesn't run a scan for errors when the machine starts backup. Its like the computer has mental problems. I downloaded the new Java client and thought that would do the trick. I can get to the website from any other of my computers here in the office. Any ideals??? Nothing shows up in the error logs and I guess I don't know where to start. It can't be a power supply problem can it the machine is running fine until I go to that site.

Cannot See Background Colors Or Images On Web Pages
My daughter recently saved an interactive desktop of Harry Potter to our pc, we think. Suddenly after saving, the pc automatically changed web fonts, colors, placement of text boxes and some settings. We uninstalled but found the colors and backgrounds of all web pages to be white. Myspace pages allows everything, but no background pics or colors. We installed internet explorer 7 and that fixed the font sizes but not the colors. ANyone know any tricks to try before we backup and reintall windows?
