bring down the internet?

Question: bring down the internet?

"In an instant message chat, Microsoft has told the Windows Featured Communities that the demand for Windows Vista Beta 2 has been overwhelming. It is, in fact, the largest downloaded software in history. Currently, they are serving product keys out ten times faster then the downloads can be served. In fact, they are pumping out bits as fast as they can - any faster and there would be a measurable impact on the internet. In fact, I quote a Microsoft representive:

"So, we are literally saying that if we increased our bandwidth any further there's a possibilty of taking down the Internet - people might have problems with World Cup viewing, etc"

People who have recieved Vista Beta 2 product keys, but are unable to download, may need to wait a few days, up to one week. Microsoft encoruages users who want to try out Windows Vista Beta 2 to order the DVD. When they recieve the DVD in 1-4 weeks, install it, and activate it, they will be automattically guaranteed an RC1 upgrade."

this info was taken from

i was wondering hwo this would happen how couls so many people DL vista and MS expanding there bandwidth "bring down the internet"??

Preferred Solution: bring down the internet?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: bring down the internet?

the only way i could see it is there basicaly being a traffic jam, i'm willing to bet they're sending one out to every single backbone carrier, ISP, everything, they're uploading to the net as fast as they can, and probably every router within so many hops has seen vista go thru so many times, its all hogging up bandwidth more than they've seen before. Basically all the routers and ISPs that are shoving this out is causing everyone else's traffic, mainly the vista downloaders and probably microsoft web site browsers are experiencing it the most, but since vista is taking up so much bandwidth its causing everyone else's internet to be slow. I actualy havent noticed much a difference, mines always slow, **PUKE FOR DIALUP**

After dial up and logging into my ISP all I get are URL not available. I have switched ISPs, switched from IE to Netscape, reloaded my modem drivers, played with buffers - switched off and changed settings. I have gone to DOS and used PING. This problem has been going on for about a week. A few days ago I got 80% lost using PING, now I get 100% lost.

My ISP is OK, since my laptop works fine. My desk unit which is having the problem is Intel 350 Pent II with 64 MG ram and Windows 98.

Sometimes I cant bring up Internet Explorer. I dont get an error message. I turn off computer, and Sunday that worked, but yesterday it didnt. This morning Im right in. Im not that computer literate. Can you help me?

Answer:Cant bring up Internet Explorer

This condition may happen because your mouse's left click button does not send a signal every time you click it.There may be several factors affecting this: (1) low battery (if you are using wireless mouse) or (2) dirt collecting under the left click button or (3) the drivers of the mouse. Either replace depleted batteries or update mouse drivers or buy a new mouse.RegardsCoolGuy

whenever i try to bring up internet explorer, i get the message "cannot find 'file:///C:/WINDOWS/s.htm'. Make sure the path of Internet Address is correct.

what do i do?

Answer:i can't bring up internet explorer

Looks like you're trying to use a bad shortcut to open IE. Go to:

Start -- Run -- type in "iexplore.exe" (without quotes) -- Enter

Does your Internet Explorer program start that way? If so, create yourself a new shortcut and delete the old (inoperative) one.

the internet will stop working saying internet explorer is down. I have down loaded the internet explorer 11 and using windows 7. It just seems everything is slow. my McAfee security is what I use and the scans say computer is safe and ok?

Answer:slow to bring up internet explorer

You need to post the exact message, there is no such message as "Internet Explorer is down". Perhaps it says "Internet Explorer is not responding"?Slow Internet could also be caused by your type of Internet service. It would help if you posted who your ISP is, what type of connection, IE. dial up, DSL, cable, satellite, etc. and where you are located.message edited by THX 1138

I installed Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP two days ago. It generally works, but I ran into a problem. Prior to IE 7, I listed a well known cite (westlaw dot com) as a trusted site. Now when I try to bring that cite up from my old bookmark link, I get a completely white page. When I try to go from a link on the google search page, nothing happens. I did notice at the bottom of the window that IE 7 was analyzing the page for phishing.

I removed the cite from my trusted cites list and turned off IE 7 phishing. I still have the same problem. I have not had a problem with IE 7 otherwise. Do you have any idea what the problem is?

Answer:Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP won't bring up a website

I've only found one web site IE7 doesn't 'work' on and that's my local grocer's shop online site. I sent them an email asking why the site doesn't work with IE7 and I'm still waiting for a reply.
I think a lot of web sites just aren't 'up to snuff' for IE7, but eventually they'll HAVE to be or they'll lose visitors.
Amazon works great.
Maybe it's a lack of security on some websites thing?

In November 2006, I made posts regarding that Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP won't bring up My November 2006 Major Geeks post is at

I finally found a solution.

The site states that an inability to access from Internet Explorer 7 generally is due to an incompatibility between Westlaw website and computers with Windows XP Service Pack 2.

Here is the fix listed at :

1. Please check whether you have Service Pack 2 installed on your computer.
? Right click on ?My Computer? on your computer desktop.
? Choose ?Properties?
? Fourth line on the Window should mention ?Service Pack 2? - if Service Pack 2 is there then you need to configure your Internet Explorer browser

? Open Internet Explorer browser (click on it)
? Go to ?Tools?
? Choose ?Internet Options?
? Go to ?Security?
? Choose ?Trusted Sites? and bring slider down to lowest level
? If you do not see a slider, then click on ?Default Level?

? Click on ?Sites,? - a window will pop up and then add 3 websites ?
4. however, before adding these 3 websites, make sure ?Required Server Verification? in unchecked

Answer:Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP won't bring up

Question: After going through the above steps, the slider for my ?Trusted Sites? now is down to the lowest level and my ?Required Server Verification? in unchecked. Should I be concerned or change these back?

I purchased some new software on the internet and it will not let me download it because I am told that the download process is not compatible with Edge. It says bring up Internet Explorer but all I can do is bring up Edge. I would love to just get rid of edge but failing that, I need to be able to bring up IE. Any help?

Answer:Why have I lost the ability to bring up Internet Explorer

Just click on Start button (Far left of the Start bar, with the picture of a window with four panes of glass) and choose All Apps, scroll down to Windows Accessories and click on it and scroll down to IE, pin this to your Start page and you can use IE when you want.
MS left it there so you had a choice and for times like this when you need some backwards compatibility.

Win 98 SE

IE 6

This is my mother's computer - I am here overnight so would appreciate help ASAP. This last week she got a "Page not displayed" and couldn't get the connection to the internet dial-up box when she clicked the IE icon. I have fixed the "page not displayed" - somehow she had the blank page set as her home page. When clicking the IE icon now, we still get the blank page prior to connecting, (not surprisingly), however the connection dialup box still does not appear. I can connect by going through outlook express, which brings up the box, or directly through the icon in dial up networking. Once connected, we now get web pages as opposed to blank pages before.

She said she was getting blank pages all the time and changed some settings but has no idea what.

Things I have tried include:

Deleting all temp, temporary internet and cookie files
Deleting the IE shortcut and replacing it directly from IE in the programs folder in case shortcut had been changed - this happened once before & this trick worked.
Have run hijack this - only saw web.related.htm as anything unusual
Have run virus check, spybot and ad aware - only found DSO exploit which was deleted.
I also tried resetting the registry using scanreg/restore hoping this might help but it didn't. Any more ideas please?

The other evening in the middle of the night we had a power outage. Ever since then, I cannot get connection to the internet on either the desktop or the laptop. The wireless signal strength is excellent on both computers, but no internet. The Broadband lights all are on and steady on the router. I read through some of the other threads and know that you will ask me to do some things, but I may need assistance getting to those steps, ie ipconfig/all etc.

I bought a glow-in-the-dark keyboard a few weeks ago. The paper they referred to as an owner's manual said to delete the previous keyboard drivers to avoid conflict. I was wary of doing that, and I also did not know how to do it. I was expecting a simple plug n play, but of course nothing is simple with this stuff. When I first tried to use the new board, Windows would freeze up, but I kept at it till I found a way to make it work. I've been leaving the little cd that came with the new keyboard in the drive. When I power on it says 'no keyboard' found. Then I reload the drivers for the new keyboard, the computer reboots itself, and it's been working for quite a while that way. I know it isn't the proper way, but it's been working so I've put up with having to reload the new drivers every day. Today Windows started freezing up again even after I reloaded the new drivers when it gets to the place where I select which user name to use. That's the way it was doing before I found a way around it. I think it must all have begun when there was some sort of fatal error in Windows this morning. I looked at the screen just as an error box faded away and XP started shutting itself down. I didn't see the error message. So I'm writing to ask how do I remove the drivers for this old keyboard, and after that is done, and I reload the new drivers again, will the reloaded drivers be permanent? Thank you.

Awful sad. How naive. Let me be a bit more naive and ask: is it possible to upgrade T520 somehow, and get USB 3.0 controller on it?

You should be able to do it by just opening two windows in IE.

But, I would like to recommend getting firefox from, that program allows for tabbed browsing which will allow you to have multiple sites open in the same window.

Here is my list so far. I plan on playing Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim and Arma2 including some retro emulators such as Project64. I want this rig to be less then 600usd and was wondering if there was anything you guys thought would be better to change. I have an optical drive I can take from my current dell and I think we have Windows somewhere in a flash drive. Do I need windows 7 to play these games or just Steam? I dont need a monitor or keyboard or mouse. I have a Samsung 32in TV that I use as a monitor.

Cooling Fan:
Video Card:
Power Supply:

Right now it seems like this will come to over 600usd. I wanted a good processor and video card so that games wont lag and will be a good fps. I will likely play at the medium setting mostly, but may use high as well for games like skyrim. My dad knows computers moderately well and could help me with installing everything correctly.​

Answer:How can I bring the cost of this rig to under $600

I've just added everything to my shopping cart, including the Hyper 212 which was only $5 more at Newegg. It looks to be a total cost of $620 for everything listed. I did notice one thing, AMD recommends a 500W PSU with the HD 7850, the list has a 450W PSU chosen. Other than the 250GB drive, everything else looks good to me. I personally wouldn't spend $60 on a 250GB HDD. For $25 more you could have 4 times the capacity. I know you are looking to save a buck or two but sometimes shortcuts have too high a cost.

Hi there

This "update in place" mechanism is a PAIN if it fails during the process -- this means you actually have to restore the previous image of your OS (if you have one), remedy the error and start again.

Mine failed because I was nearly out of HDD space for the OS so it ran out of space. OK I restored the OS from an image, used GPARTED to increase the partition size and then OK started again. OK this time.

Now in the "REAL WORLD" there will be many people who could be rendered with an inoperative computer if the update in place fails and there isn't an automatic roll back or the roll back fails. Some people (probably MOST who aren't on these forums) STILL don't take regular reliable backups !!! - Idiotic I know but true. !!

Having an ISO would eliminate a lot of this - just wipe your HDD and install clean -- what's wrong with that idea.

(I know currently there are some get around's on this (Kari's tutorial for example) but the average user won't do that of course).cre

The update in place is a DOG on VM's too - probably worse than on a REAL machine - especially if you run out of HDD (Virtual) disk space for the OS. You need to backup the image of the VM, Create a NEW VM and then restore it !!. You can't just image the OS or copy the Virtual Disk files.


Answer:Ms PLEASE bring back ISO's again

Good idea to have the option of this to download it

The only problem is would this work ok for the average user, I cant see many wanting to download an ISO, clean install and then install/setup all their apps again

IMO, the in place upgrades/updates as they are now are best for the average user, for more technical the ISO could be offered

Hello again, MG's best people::-D

I am having trouble bringing my desktop PC out of 'Stand By'.
I rarely used this function, for several idiosyncratic reasons, but now I'd like to be able to do it. Unfortunately, the PC has other ideas about this decision.:confused

It seems like a hardware problem, so I stuck this post in here; but it may be an OS issue and belongs under 'Software'....

I go to Start > Turn Off Computer > and then hit the 'Stand By' button. The PC and monitor shut down like it is really turned off, except the little blue light behind the button (where you boot-up the machine) is 'on'. The machine does not purr or make much noise. That's what I thought it was supposed to do.....

Okay. So now, when I jiggle the mouse, or hit 'enter' or hit the space bar, I am waiting for the PC to come back on, which it seems to be trying to do. The machine starts to purr a little, but there is no great humming and the monitor stays black. I can't get it up and running, or even out of this state that I am now cornered in.:cry

The only way to go at this point is to press that button that normally boots up the rig, and has a little blue light on behind it, and hold it down until the machine manually shuts down. Then I gotta re-boot it back up again.

Is this something someone knows how to fix in a simple way ?? I'm no experienced officer, so the �... Read more

Question: Bring back pop up

The original issue for one of my users was she was getting a message on a certain webpage that said "To display this webpage correctly you need to download and install the following components: Java Virtual Machine"

The options on this box were to download or cancel. When you hit download, it would take you out to the java site in a different window and it would load the original screen one button at a time as you kept hitting download. Now I think I know how to fix this, but one of our level 1 techs decided to check the box that said 'Never download any of these components'. So now it appears this webpage doesn't want to downlod java components anymore.

Does anyone know how to get this pop up back after he checked that box? I feel like I've tried everything in the security settings and the advanced tab. She's got IE6SP1 on a 2000 machine.

Also to note: I actually reverted back to IE5.5 and the webpage worked fine, but when I upgraded to IE6SP1 again it gave us the same screen with red x's all over the place. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I am working on this computer and he has McAfee, ThreatFire, ParetoLogic and Speedy PC. We were having trouble with going to windows live, but your website helped with that, but I still can't load McAfee. It shows up running in the task mgr., but when I click on the icon it acts like it is going to come up, but doesn't. Down on the right side of the taskbar where the active programs are there is the McAfee symbol. When I right or left click nothing happens. He is running Vista Home Basic on his Acer. I downloaded Prevx and Malwarebytes had found malware and removed it. Paid some guy online $35.00 to help me fix problems, but he knew about as much as me and did a system restore and removed the above Prevx & Malwarebytes. I have tried disabiling the UAC and other stuff, but to no avail. I have spent 2 days on this and I am getting really frustrated. This computer is in Spanish which I can read some and the keyboard is also. I keep changing the language and it keeps changing back. I have a feeling that the McAfee has expired, but it still shoud come up. Oh yeah, the security center shows that there is no anti-virus software installed.One more thing...The ThreatFire has 2 screens that come is a map and the other is about security and I can't close the windows unless I reboot. Also, I am having a hard time being able to read the letter verification.Thanks for any help you all can give me!

Answer:Can't bring up McAfee

McAfee and ThreatFire are both anti-virus programs and shouldn't be installed and running at the same time.

Those other cleaner/booster/optimizer/tuneup programs are basically useless and will do little to nothing to improve speed or performance. What they can do is break programs and damage the operating system.

Currently living/working in our RV while we are looking for a new home. Most RV parks have WiFi which works for my purpose IF I am outside. Once I step into the RV it is like stepping into a Faraday cage, i.e., the signal strength drops to almost useless levels.

What I'd like to be able to do is grab the signal (maybe a Ubiquiti?), get the park's IP address. Feed that into a existing WRT54G (as if it was connected to the WAN) via CAT-5 cable which would then be my "inside" WiFi. I know I don't want a repeater because I will lose bandwidth. Looks like I want to do a bridge (client?) but am not sure what to get for the initial signal grab.

Thoughts, suggestions, comments, welcome.

Or am I completely nuts and just need to get a rainsuit and an umbrella and work outside?

Answer:I got a new desktop since my Alienware bring me down

Thats a little sad.

The Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 is a Z68 chipset board using the FC-LGA1155 socket. It requires a "Sandy Bridge" LGA1155 CPU ( four digit model number starting with 2. i.e. 2400, 2500, 2600 etc... There are also unlocked three multiplier CPU's suffixed "K" ( 2500K, 2600K and 2700K) for people who like the idea of overclocking. Which brings us to your CPU...

...which is a "Lynnfield" CPU made for FC-LGA1156 for the previous series of Intel motherboards ( P55 primarily).

In short, your CPU is NOT able to work with the board you have chosen. You will need to return it and select a CPU from this range of models.

This is the motherboards product page. You can view the CPU support list from the button on the right-hand side of the page. I would also double check RAM compatibility (either from the board's manual or download a copy of the memory support list ) - the RAM you have listed is rated at quite a large voltage range (1.5 - 1.8 volts)...anything over 1.65 volts will cause your (eventual) CPU to have an incredibly short lifespan.

I am almost embarrassed to tell this story. I got a new laptop and gave my ThinkPad T42 to my college student son along with all the papers, etc. All is well for a while, then college student son has the hard drive die on him and we got a new drive for it and installed it. When I asked my son for the recovery discs that I gave him he got a blank look on his face. The net is that my son lost the discs. He can't find them anywhere. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to how I can download the ThinkPad software so that the system will operate. I have a separate copy of Windows XP that I can install on top of that. I have checked the Lovovo site and can't seem to find what I need to get it up and running again. Each and every idea or suggestion will be GREATLY appreciated. The frustration level is very high at this point. Thanks

Answer:Help! Need to bring a T42 back from the dead!

You could call Lenovo customer support to see if they still have T42 recovery CDs available for purchase. Failing that there's always eBay, e.g. this. But since you have a separate copy of XP another approach is to install it on the T42 and then download/install ThinkVantage software on top. Expect to spend several hours doing it manually. The main problem is going to be to first get an Ethernet driver for the T42 installed so that you can then download the rest. One way to do it if you have a second PC is to download it from Lenovo, then transfer the file to the T42 by USB flash drive. Go here to get to the Lenovo support pages for your model of T42. Find the driver matrix, then download the appropriate network driver (probably for the Intel PRO/1000 LAN adapter) and then install it on the T42. Once you have connectivity you can start downloading the rest of the drivers and utilities that your T42 needs to be whole. The best way to do that is to download and install System Update 3.14. Let it determine what you need, then download and install it for you automatically.  P.S. Don't forget also to run Microsoft Update to get the latest and greatest XP patches.

I closed my left side with shapes on it now, I'm not sure how to open in again

Answer:How do i bring up Shapes in visio!!

Not sure what version you're using, but are you referring to the "Category" section? If you close Visio and reopen, it should show up again.

Alright, I don't know where to ask this so I'm coming to you all. Feel free to point me elsewhere.

I have a task, there are Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, one for each day of the year going back into 2005. Each workbook has one worksheet in it with between 200 and 1000 lines. Each line represents one transaction. One or my coworkers goes through each day and marks whether the transaction is valid or not, if it is not it may be marked as fix or no. So three possible outcomes.

My task is to summarize all the sheets into one. The simple solution to me is a countif type function. For some reason the new spreadsheet does not update, once I save it, where I had the correct numbers, I now have errors. When I close and go back in and update, still errors. I am assuming this is because the files are all out on a network drive.

So, the countif solution appears to be out. My next option I was considering was importing the sheets to an Access database, then I could manipulate, query and report from there. However, I don't want to import each SS individually. I can't think of a way to write a macro for it.

I'm sure people do this kind of thing all the time, there has to be a better, less time intensive option. Suggestions?

Answer:Bring together tons of spreadsheets?

what type of permissions do you have for this network drive?

Answer:Cannot bring Malwarebytes website up

I am pretty sure all my systems at this point are clean. I found if I bypassed my Netgear router, connecting directly to my cable modem, I was able to connect to I did a hard reset of the router, but still cant get to Are some viruses attacking routers now?

I think I will see if I can reflash the bios on the router, other than that, I suppose I will have to buy a new router.

All my systems come up clean with Malwarebytes (loaded from USB) and SuperAntiSpyware.

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. Thank you in advance.

Answer:IE won't bring up site whereas other browsers do

I've just got my new X200s including ultrabase and DVD R/W (7469-73G). The warranty service ist "bring-in". I thought that this kind of service usually is "bring-in and return" but German Lenovo service told me that this service is "bring-in and pick-up". Just in case I need Lenovo warranty service I have to send my X200s to Eastern Europe (Bratislava, Slovacia) which is hard to accept because Lenovo has service locations in Germany. Best of all: When repair is finished, I have to pick-up my X200s in Bratislava or ask e.g. UPS for pick-up which is quite pricy for private customers. Is there anybody from Germany or Europe who has experience with Lenovo's bring-in (and pick-up) service?  

Answer:X200s bring-in service

reuchlin, welcome to the forum, I don't know how, but someone perhaps thought you were calling from Slovacia. The information is incorrect.  If you should need warranty service in Germany call 01805 004618 and explain the problem; should it be decided that you need to send your system in for repair you will not be asked to send it to anywhere outside of Germany but rather to Lenovo's repair centre for Germany which is based in Heppenheim. When your system has been repaired they will return it to you at no extra charge. Hope this helps

Is there a way to bring back your Firefox web history after deleting it?

Answer:Bring back web history?

History is recorded in the index.dat files. If you haven't deleted these files you should be able to at least view the history. There are viewers for such purposes. (Freeware)

Your antispyware app. may warn you the WinSpy is malware but in reality it isn't.

IOS -- Only one OEM, Apple himself. So out of the question here.
Android -- All the OEMs deciding to go with android can provide some kind of differentiation by customizing the experience.
For instance: Samsung -- Curved screen, added functionality of some kind.
LG V10 -- Small secondary ticker screen.
I'm not talking about the how useful it is or if the device is unstable. Its about provisioning the capabilities.
Will other OEMs have same benefit while coming to Android. What differentiation will each WindowsPhone carry among OEMs?

Answer:What benefit other can OEM bring to WindowsPhone?

The differentiation amongst Android OEMs is more software than hardware related. Yes, there are different designs. However, most of the differences are in the custom skins and launchers that the OEMs add to their devices. I believe that there would be far less Android OEMs and far less Android devices if stock Android was all that could be run.
I don't feel that there is much differentiation available to OEMs manufacturing Windows Phones, due to the closed nature of the OS.

This morning I cleaned way too many old emails from my Inbox. After that, I clicked on "Receive Mail". The total number goes up next to Inbox, but no new emails appear. I've tried at least four times. When I go to my server and check emails, they are there. When I go back to OE6 (Windows XP), click on receive, up goes the total, but no new emails show. Going back to server, they're gone. I know they're in my computer somewhere, but I haven't a clue. I did a restart, a system restore, and compacted. However, when I tried compacting, it hung up on the Inbox. Said there was an unknown error. In addition, I'm having trouble deleting any more emails. I'm OK around a computer until you want me to go to the registry or something, so please be patient. Thank you.

Answer:Cannot bring emails into computer
