Browsers & Mail - Google Search Results In Blank Window


This is one of those out-of-the-blue things that just started the other day. When i do a google search, i'll get the first page of results no problem. If i click on any of the search suggestions at the bottom or click to go to the next page of results, the screen goes blank and that's that. Refreshing the page doesn't do anything either. I can open the search results themselves no problem, but anything that involves further searching from the first page doesn't work. This just happens in ie9, it works normally in firefox no probs. Also, this is only happening on my windows 7/64 laptop. On my windows 7/32 desktop all is a-okay.

I've tried emptying the temporary files/cookies etc. With ccleaner, and tried it in private mode as well where the cache and cookies are bypassed. Finally i then tried resetting ie (tools > internet options > advanced > reset). No dice. I can drag page links from the results page up to the tab bar and drop them there and they will open that way (in other words, to go to the next page of links i can click and hold the "next >" link or one of the page numbers at the bottom, drag it up to the tab bar and release and the next page will open in a tab. )

Files Do Not Appear In Search Results

I am having a problem with two files not being indexed and not showing up in searches in windows explorer†(windows 7 ultimate 64 bits).

The files are two jpgs that a friend sent me over email. I saved them in a subfolder in the picture folder and tagged them with windows live photo gallery.

When i search for the pictures in the windows live photo gallery, they show up immediately (i can search by file name or any of the tags). However, when i search for them from the start menu or from the explorer search bar, they are invisible: if i type any of the tags or their file name, they do not show up, even when i am in the folder containing such files (all other files in the same folder are indexed correctly).

I right clicked each file, then properties. In the general tab, i then clicked on advanced and i found out that the checkbox "allow this file content to be indexed [. ]" Was unchecked. I checked it, rebooted, rebuilt a search index, but the files still don't show up.

Is there some other properties i have to look at? Any workaround?

Two Browsers Opening In One Window

When opening internet explorer, one window comes up, but it always has two tabs - i.e. Two browsers - each with my default home page, google. Neither browser goes anywhere weird nor acts oddly, they just sit there waiting for me to use them. Typically, to open a browser, i use a quick launch icon on my toolbar or a dedicated button on my keyboard. I have also tried using the ie icon on my desktop and have tried going to start>programs>internet explorer. Regardless of which method i use, i always get a window with two tabs.

I'm not sure when this started, but i think it was after my last windows update. Interestingly, i have a shortcut icon on my desktop for speedtest.net and when i click on it, i get one window only with no extra tab! Ditto with other website shortcuts on my desktop. This is not a huge problem, but a bit annoying as i must now close an extra browser.

Explorer Search In Win 7 Accumulate Results From Previous Searches

Why does explorer file search in windows 7 accumulate the results from previous searches and display them altogether? Explorer file search in windows 7 accumulates the results from previous searches and shows these historical searches under the latest set of results. Why?If this is how microsoft intended this to work, they must have lost the plot. The results list seems to get larger and larger, becoming unwieldy.

How do i get the search facility to only return a list of the file name typed into the search field - ie. If i am looking for all the "index.html" files in the 100 sub directories i am searching?How can i prevent this happening. All i want to see in the list is the 100 index.html files and not the previous files like benefits.html, contactmap.html, which i had searched for earlier. Nyone know how to make this work properly?

Media Center - Add Recording Search Fails - No Results Found

Windows media center seems to be getting the guide updates fine and my regularly scheduled programs are being recorded as they should be. I can use the guide or various other list mechanisms to see future programs but the add recording->search->title & ->keyword (where you actually have to type something in) fail. Type any letter, and it says, "no results found. " You can type an entire title to a show and it will not find it, yet i can find it using the add recording -> guide, and then a lot of scrolling. Search used to work, but now hasn't worked for several weeks (months?). Guide updates still work because my existing scheduled recordings get every new episode.

Run Programs From Search Window

Interesting dilemma. When i search for an exe from the search menu (bottom of start menu), the search response comes up with the location where the files are, but not the executable itself.

Example: click start, type "cmd"

What should happen: the cmd executable shows up as a result, and then you can click and run it.

What does happen: the search result is "programs". When i click on that, i get a windows security pop-up that indicates "these files can't be opened" your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened. "

I'm not sure why the internet security settings are affecting this at all, and i'm not sure what to change in the settings to allow the os to run the files from the search bar.

Any ideas?

Live Mail Client Won't Search / Index

My initial problem with wlm stemmed from not being able to search email messages for content using the default search bar in the client. For example, i would like to search email content for a search phrase, but results only searched subject lines. If go through the normal live mail search edit > find works well for searching message content. But i want to use the default search bar. Fter doing some troubleshooting, i determined that i needed to rebuild the index on the pc.

After hours of fiddling with the indexing options and terribly slow performance, i decided to just index windows live mail. However, it seems that indexing won't work on the windows live mail folder. I've fiddled with file types and deselected other folder locations just to focus on windows live mail, but in the end it won't index. I've got at least 4000 emails on this pc and not a single one of them indexes. I tried a registry fix at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969165 to no avail. Any ideas?

Cannot Google

Running ie8 under windows 7 on a realtively new dell computer. Whenever i type something in ie8's search box next to the url/address box i get the error below. If i click on 'here' in the last sentence the search goes through. This is starting to be annoying if i use bing from the search box everything works fine. If i use firefox, everything works fine. It only happens with ie8 & the search box. I can go to google.com and it works fine from there.

Google†error†forbidden your client does not have permission to get url /custom?Cx=partner-pub-5975212467994412%3a4afwhv-2bm2&ie=utf-8&q=internet+explorer from this server. (Client ip address: 98. 162. 216. 240)

We apologize for your inconvenience, but this request could not be processed. Please click here to continue your search on google.

Cannot Get To Google

Since last monday, i haven't been able to get to the main google search page. I can still get to maps, videos, and a couple other pages, but if the address starts with www.google.com, i can't get to it. What makes this really frustrating is it works just fine on another (very old) computer in the house that's hooked up through the same router (at&t), so i know it's not the connection. It's this computer. I've even scanned for malware and nothing came up. I have no idea what else to do.

P. S. I have ie 8 and windows xp sp3.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Cannot Remove Google Redirect Virus

There is apparently some kind of virus that is causing google and yahoo (also bing) search result links to be redirected to unrelated sites or spam sites. I did a full scan with kaspersky internet security†and also with windows defender - both had updated databases but neither detected the problem. I have the same issue with both internet explorer 7 (xp with all security updates)†and firefox.

The symptom is when you do a search on google or yahoo, then click on one of the results, you are taken to a page other than the one specified in the link, usually a page about a completely different topic or a spam site. Other people have reported the same issues on various blogs but not clear solution. How can i find and remove this virus?

Update Searches Endlessly, With No Results

Whenever i start windows update, the search bar activates, but it searches endlessly - up to a half hour or more. It doesn't identify any updates needed, nor say that there are no updates. Because of this ongoing problem, i have not been able to get any updates for months. I have checked and confirmed that the windows firewall is active, and no other firewalls are active.

Right now, i'm trying to install an ocr scanning "pen. " I installed the software, but can't install the device. It says "error updating the driver (hid:*windrvr6) with the inf file. " I hope to resolve this through windows update. However, in fact, when i type windrvr6. Inf in the search box on the start menu, it finds the file. I would welcome advice both about how to get windows update working, and about how to get the software can "find" this missing file.

Internet Browsers Connection Crash

I'm having problem with all internet browsers. This error occurs only when i'm using my main user, admin user. When opening mozilla or ie the page won't load. I have to wait like 2 minutes then page loads. I'm in guest user at the moment and no problems. It seems like my internet connection goes away, but no. I'm using msn and other connection required programs so connection isn't the problem. Still my browsers won't get proper connection to internet and won't load pages at first. Every time i reopen browser same problem occurs again. This problem really bothers me. I'm using windows 7 64-bit and running 4gb 2, 7ghz machine. Modem connection, not wireless.

No Sound Device Strange Results

6 months ago i installed† windows 7 32 bit evaulation copy build 7100, installed all drivers for my external devices. I am using a motu 896 firewire as my audio device. Everything worked beautiful. Last week i decided to install a newly purchased copy of windows 7 home premium. I decided to install a fresh install of the 64 bit version. The install went perfect and i activated it. I installed the motu drivers from there website (as i did 6 months ago) but the 64 bit flavor. The installed , ok and i rebooted and plugged in the device and turn it on, the plug&play triggered and found the device and installed the drivers and said device is ready to use.

I go to the control panel, to the sound section and it says no audio devices found. I check the system devices and the drivers are loaded an they state they are working properly, not yellow flags and no sound. I tried contacting moto but they had no clue since i had it working in the eval copy of windows 7. The only difference was i installed 64 bit, so i removed and installed the 32 bit version but ended up with the same results.

How can the eval version work and the purchased version does not.

Flash Player Making Browsers Crash

Whenever i use a site, such as youtube on any browser, (have tried opera, ie, firefox, chrome) i get the "not responding" message. I found this : http://forums. Techguy.org/windows-7/908928-browser-crash-windows-7-a.html and my problem sounds very similar, however i dont know how he resolved his problem. Just some info : running new laptop, windows 7 64bit.

I have tried updating and reinstalling the flash-player alot, when i go to the adobe site it says it is successfully installed. And just to make the whole thing worse, it doesn't always happen when i have just rebooted the system, however i don't think this is due to a problem with hardware, i have 4gb ram, 2. 1s something ghz processor.

Flash Causing Internet Browsers To Hang

This has been an ongoing issue and i am so sick of it. Flash content is constantly causing any internet browser i use to hang. My main browser is firefox. It mostly happens with flash video like on youtube. Sometimes it works fine for a while and then all of a sudden when i go to play a new video the browser will hang. When the browser hangs i will no longer be able to watch videos unless the computer is restarted. When the browser hangs it also affects windows too.

I can't even play videos on wmp, it would hang too. It only happens if the browser was hanged. I always get the hang errors when it happens in firefox but i have no idea how to use them. I have made dump files too when it happens but i do not have a clue how to use them. (Something about signature files or something)

Browsers Won't Connect To Internet

Iíve been contacting verizon since june 7 to get my desktop at home on-line. I use ie. Evan tried foxfire and safari. No one seems to be able to get me on-line. Even had a computer technician that i paid to come out, and he says it's verizon. Finally, verizon sent a field technician out twice and each time he was able to get me on-line after several hours and phone calls. It lasted for 2 days each time. After it went down the 2nd time, called verizon back and they said i had a defective modem 6100f because red light didn't go on.

Sent a new westell 6100g and the light now goes on, but it's red. Called back and spent some time with a support technician and he said there was some kind of outage in the area, he didn't know what. Told me he'd call back in 4 hours. Never heard from him. I plugged the ethernet connection into my laptop and the red light is still on the modem. I just want to know what avenue to pursue to fix my problem. Iím going to starbucks daily just to be able to use my laptop.

Verizon doesn't seem to be able to fix the problem. And i don't want to get a new computer if the internet connection doesn't work into the house. They put a filter on the outside at the box so i didn't have to put filters on my phone lines. My neighbor right next door has dsl and isn't having any problems. Does anyone have a solution? I still have window 2003 on my desktop.

Explorer And Browsers Windows Scroll Bar Issue

All windows programmes (such as browsers firefox, chrome, explorer) force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up. Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately resolve the problem. All windows programmes force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up.

Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately help. Environment using win 7 on a laptop (acer), with usb mouse. When the mouse is not used (i.e. Tracker pad is used) there seems to be a number of system freezes. We did not get these problems prior to windows 7 upgrade. The lap top is relatively new with 4gb ram.

Password Field Character Limit Problem With Browsers

When i type a password into a password field in internet explorer, firefox, or google chrome, i am only able to type 7 characters. This only seems to be an issue on this particular machine under all user profiles. It affects all sites i have visited so far. If i go to another machine and try the same sites the process works without any problems. I am wondering if there is any security settings or something that is overriding a password field. I am using prevex 3. 0 as my av client. Any ideas on what could cause such strange behavior?†

Explorer Searches Problem With Ordering Results By Full Path

Explorer searches no longer (i.e. Since xp) seem to allow ordering results by full path in the folder column. Open explorer, browse to "c:", search for "*. *Proj", lots of results, "folder" column (which used to show whole path logically) now shows last folder then first to last-but-one folder (e.g. "Aardvark(c:program files)"). This means that i cannot get a logical order when i order by this column. Very annoying when trying to find visual studio projects on my machine.

This sucks! I realize this is probably by design since the addition of libraries but it means that i have to reboot to ubuntu to do this type of search ordering now (pain!) If anyone knows a way around this to put folder as e.g. "C:program filesaardvark"i will be very grateful.

P. S. Please drop ntfs asap. Linux uses a modern file-system (ext4:2006), solaris uses a modern file-system (zfs:2004 - loved by codeproject.com) please don't keep using this slow and bad filesystem - the little improvements each year since 1993 are really started to seem sad and ineffectual.

Converting Outlook Mail Folders To Windows Mail

I copied my outlook express messages files to my new win7 pc and imported them into windows mail. After hours of running overnight, all of the messages were copied into one folder! I have over 100 folders but the windows mail did not replicate this structure.

Question 1- did i miss something or is windows mail incapable of converting over my outlook files properly (e.g. Into their respective folders).

Question 2- if this is something that cannot be done with import, can i import one dbx message file at a time into windows mail so that i can move each cluster or messages to a folder manually.
