Vista (any version) seems to have more trouble than XP with broadband connections after people have downloaded the updates, can you please list what security software you are using for me.

The only addition to the security software provided by windows is avg 8

Re: vista/firefox/ie problems

Palms,

I know how frustrating it is - it's like getting ready to do your grocery shopping and the car doesn't start - some things should just work!

So you can't see the zolved.com webpages - what are some others that your browser cannot open? Maybe we can figure something they have in common if we see a few of the pages that won't open for your computer? I stayed with XP, but hopefully some of the Vista users can check the same pages also. I don't understand java, but I use Noscript on Firefox and the zolved.com page doesn't require me to change any script settings to see it like some pages do.

Oh, on a page that doesn't show anything, what happens if you right-click and choose "View page source" - does anything show up?

Re: vista/firefox/ie problems

Sorry to hear your having probs with FF, I've had my share recently. I was helped by the FF support forum, you could try there????
As for the fire wall, I personally don't use Windows version, I disabled it and installed Ashampoo's Fire wall. The price is right and its quite easy to set up and use.

Re: vista/firefox/ie problems

Unfortunately i cant remember some of the pages i cant get onto but trimoons blog, you tube, and face book is intermittent ( not the only user of the pc )

And as of tonight i have had trouble getting on to the forum here, so yet again to make sure i have run spy bot ( i think it is about the 3rd time i have run it as well as a couple of others) there have been a few tracking cookies but that is it

so if i dont post for a bit you will know the reason why ( the smilies dont work now ) but i will be back have no fear

we have been thinking of a firewall but didnt want to make matters worse by installing one with the problems we already have,
thank you for all your helpful advice I have faith it will be sorted

oh and Markzebra your link worked think it is a sign ?

Palms the smilies thing was a symptom I had when had the problem about "no pics" the answer to that prob fixed the smilie prob at the same time.

Also I believe Cookies can be to blame for a lot of this stuff.

You'll see some of the probs I was having because of Cookies.

These steps are worth trying at least.
Best of luck

Re: vista/firefox/ie problems

if you're still getting internet issues after the reinstallation of windows, it might not be your computer. I work at Univ of Calif Riverside and I've noticed similar problems both when I was living there and at the office. It had to do with how the network was setup with security devices. For example, we have this thing called packet shaper, it analyzes all internet traffic (Packet heads) to see what kind of data it is, and then it reroutes it accordingly to specified ports or certain speeds (UCR's way of limiting unwanted traffic such as bit torrent). I've noticed that sometimes chokes up or gets all screwy and it messed up the webpages being displayed. And also, most ISP have servers that cache commonly visited websites their customers views so that they can pull it up faster without wasting huge amounts of bandwidth. I.e.) They'll cache youtube and facebook so it loads faster for all their subscribers and so that they can save on bandwidth...and so on. Might be possible it's your ISP? Just a thought. Hope everything works out. If it was a software problem, hopefully the reformat has fixed it.
