Blocked By Bing From Going To Amazon.com


I am using windows 7 ultimate 64-bit os factory installed on my hp high performance pavilion elite. This is a 64-bit system. I am experiencing frequent instances of bing coming up and blocking my attempts to go to web pages i select. One instance is trying to go to amazon.com: bing page comes up and blocks the attempt. Javascript is mentioned but not explained. I go to the sun web page to download java and am blocked trying to download 64-bit java. I am possibly an intermediate user and certainly not an expert and i am confused and frustrated.

Another problem with bing coming up to block is my attempt to download pictures as screen-savers from webshots. Each time i try to download a picture i am shunted off to bing! I don't understand. How can i get rid of bing, so i can use the internet as before?

Unable To Open Amazon.com

For 2 or 3 weeks i have received the unable to open website when attempting to open www.Amazon.com  i don't know of any other website i am having similar problems with. I am using ie8 with win 7. After using the trouble shooter on the error page. The consistent response is that it was unable to find a cause for the problem.

I have searched through ie8s - internet options, checked the blocked sites and can find nothing to be blocking the access. (I am a good amazon customer and owe them no money) i am always fiddling about with programs and settings but have not made any major changes, that i recall, to cause this event.

All virus and security scans performed professionally "tracking cookies" is as serious as it gets.

Ie And Bing - Can't Download

I am unable to download most files when i try to access by ie (vista home premium, ie7). Downloading works fine in aol, google chrome and opera. The latest 2 are ad-aware update via cnet and my audible books from audible.com, although it has happened every time i try to download since bing infested my computer. It doesn't matter whether i press a "download" button or am auto directed, it goes to bing and thinks it's a search (see below messages). I contacted the bing help and they said this is an ie problem.

Bing Cashback Program Troubles

I purchased a laptop on overstock.com on july 17th using the bing cashback program and paypal. Bing claimed i was eligible for 30% off my purchase. I have received no cashback. I have tried contacting bing support and am always directed to a dead page. I am hoping someone can provide me with some help as to someone whom i can ask several questions about. My decision to purchase the laptop was based on the sale price and i honestly cannot afford the laptop at full price. I sincerely look forward to someone offering some advice.

I recently updated to ie8 and added bing/msn toolbar, first of all i have two ie8 regular ie8 and 1e8 (64 bit) first down load i used regular, ie8. It installed every ok, then i open ie8(64) no toolbar. So down loaded from this ie8(64) bit browser, it tells me it is already installed, so i restart pc but no toolbar. Then i down load toolbar again, this time it does  allows me re down load again, though upon restarting pc, no toolbar in ie8 (64) bit aggain in regular ie i have bing toolbar. I also upgraded vista to include sp 2 earlier today and upgraded ie from ie7 to ie8.

Bing Bar Install Issue

I cannot install the bing bar on my windows 7 pc. The install completes halfway and then closes with no error or finish installed message. I open ie8 and it's not there. It is listed in add/remove programs though. So i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and a clean boot install. Scan for spyware/virus, system is cleaned. Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

How To Use Bing Dynamic Rss Theme?

Windows 7 theme problem - bing dynamic (rss theme)i have used many of the new windows 7 themes without problems, but i can't get the rss theme called bing dynamic to work. When i download it and open it, all that's in the theme is the empty theme (no images), so it leaves my desktop black. I thought it might start working after waiting a minute for it to download an image, but it's been over 30 minutes and still no image. It doesn't have the rss symbol on the theme in my list like it does on my friend's computer (where it does work), but for the picture album, it has the right location: a web address for a theme server. How do i get it to work?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Bing Toolbar Download Has Stopped Search

Bing toolbar download has stopped search from opening a new page when queried (as i want). I've tried every setting i can find regarding how to open a new window with a new link or a new search and they all seem to be set correctly - but this won't work with any of the search engines on my tool-bars (and it did before the download). They always open in the same window which is a major pain in the rear end.

I tried to system restore before i installed the new toolbar but then i had problems with the toolbar that used to be there (essentially an older version of the same toolbar) that said i needed to reinstall it. Can anyone please help me get a separate window to open when i execute an ie search?  I'm comfortable with windows and if i need to make changes to the registry that's perfectly fine.

Blocked Drivers

I got a new hp 610 laptop with windows 7 home basic operating system. On installing the "total protection" it gave me an error saying that a driver. Had been blocked by the operating system and disabled. It is not giving me an indication as to which driver it is.

It must be something to do with the firewall because i cannot get it to switch on. I have total protection running on my pc and previously on my other laptop but they were running on xp pro.
Have you had something like this before?

Product Key Blocked

I have just installed(once again), my windows 7 ultimate on my recent formatted computer, because i got some problems so i had to do it. The problem is that i changed my video card because the other one stopped working. Now i put the cd key and it says that microsoft have blocked the cd key for use, and i will have to put another in 3 days. I think this is happening because i binded my cd key with my hardware when i had the another video card, so what can i do now? Where can i change it? The only hardware piece that changed was the video card, the other stuff is all the same.

Access Blocked To Files

I recently set up my new laptop with windows 7 ultimate and transferred files from my old xp laptop. I'm finding several folders that tell me "access denied". I've tried to upgrade the access through file properties>security but often the permission upgrade boxes are greyed out so i can't even improve the security. It seems that a lot of the "denied" files are under my user name.

The workaround this is to slap a blocked file from my old laptop onto a usb key and then saved it a public user on my computer but what a hassle and how inefficient.

Any ideas on how to resolve my security issues?

Downloading Files Blocked

I am trying to download a completed form from a government website and am getting the error message "to help protect your security, ie blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options. " When i click to download file, i get the message "to display the webpage again, ie needs to resend the information you've previously submitted. " I'll click retry and am taken back to the beginning and start the whole circle over.

I have added the website to my trusted sites, have tried taking the privacy settings down to accept all cookies and have tried turning off popup blocker. Nothing seems to work to allow this to finish. I am running ie 8 on windows xp pro. The file is small in size and i've not had trouble until today.

Activation Key Is Blocked

I bought 64-bit win7 in october thru the win741.com school program via download. I installed it at the time in a dual-boot configuration since it was going to take me a while to move programs & data to it (was going from 32-bit xp, had too much stuff that wouldn't run). I installed it & activated it no problem.

Eventually, i got fully moved to it & deleted the xp. About 10 days ago, i got what appears to be major ntfs corruption (machine wouldn't boot, if i put one of the drives - hardware 3ware raid1 - in another machine it didn't recognize a valid file system, etc. ). So i have rebuilt it, but it wouldn't take my key as valid during the install. I thought it was odd, but i didn't realize what was going on at the time. It's because it's an upgrade key and i no longer have xp on this system.
So now i have perused various websites and found 'workarounds' for getting it activated doing a clean install with my upgrade key.

But none have worked. And in fact, the last one returned the message that my activation key has been blocked! It's only been used/activated one time, on this same hardware, so i imagine it's the repeated attempts at activating it. I cannot find a number within the os to call ms about this. I can provide order details, key, etc.

Who do i contact, how do i get this resolved? If i have to install xp again and do a clean install while it's on there, i guess that's what i have to do. It's ridiculous, though. But it appears my key is no longer going to work. I am worried that i have been permanently locked out of what i paid for.

Product Key Has Been Blocked

Yesterday i installed windows 7 (32 bit) in a virtualbox virtual machine; but the machine got corrupt; so i reinstall windows 7 again, today. I could not enter my product key, so i did the "slmgr. Vbs /ipk product key" then "slmgr /ato" (without quotes) and a few moments later a message came up saying that "the activation server determined that the specified product key has been blocked. "This is a legal copy of windows 7 bought at christmas 2009. (Which *** me off because i did not pirate it. )This is why i love apple; no product keys to worry about. (But i need windows 7 for some win-only programs. )I can see a lawsuit arising because of this issue effecting even legal copies.

Activation Product Code Has Been Blocked

I purchased a retail copy of windows 7 ultimate and installed and activated the 64 bit version successfully. After a couple of weeks, i received a message to say that build 7600 copy of windows is not genuine. However i'm still receiving automatic updates. The packaging appears to be the same as shown on the microsoft website as being genuine and also the disc has the holograms including the "microsoft" and "genuine". I have tried to validate the software and get the message that the product code has been blocked.

I have been on the windows script host and get the following:

Partial product key: dqtc2
Activation id: a0dce89c-3304-4157-b61c-c8ad785d1fad
Extended pid:00426-00172-067-063493-00-1033-7600. 000-0912010

Genuine Win 7 Key Blocked

Ok this is somewhat a long story but here it goes. I was installing a system driver for my motherboard that was released today. During the installing my computer froze and i had to reboot. Upon my reboot all of my usb ports stopped working as soon as, i hit the log in screen. I had no way to log in or control my computer as soon as i hit the log in screen. The system did not recognize that anything was wrong so i never was prompted to repair my os. I lost my windows 7 cd a while back though i had a backup on my hard drive i had no way of reaching it.

So i got a back up cd off my roomates computer. I tried to use it to repair my computer no detection of my hard drive or windows install as i later learned it was a home x32 version. So i got a x64bit backup from his computer which was also windows 7 ultimatex64. I installed windows on a different drive than my own so i could recover my backup off my computer. So after installing his backup and i recovered and burnt my back up cd, then i rebooted.

The setup screen prompted me i installed my raid drivers and tried to repair the drive, it would not even detect that i had a windows install on my raid nor my restore points however it said i had errors with my startup and i let it attempt to repair. Once again i got to my original windows 7 install log in screen and all my usb's were still disabled. So i decided to reinstall over the top of my original windows and planned to do a restore previous version once i got in to windows.

So all went well i got in to windows and highlight my windows folder to restore to 3 days before the system driver install but the option to restore was greyed out. I figured i must have to activate my windows and upon typing in my key i received a message saying my key has been blocked by microsoft. I bought a windows 7 ultimate x64 version over 5 months ago. It was certified as genuine from when i bought it up till today. It has been verified various times throughout those months.

I have been regularly updating my computer, verified on microsoft's download site as recently as 4 days ago, registered to my live account. I am 100% sure this is a legit key. I must have went through 5 startups / partial installs, 3 full installs but only 1 attempt at trying to activate my key. Why has my key been blocked i own my copy, no one else has ever got a hold of my key, it is only on my computer, i only tried to activate from my personal back up installation. What is going on? Why has my key been blocked?

Receiving Messages Of Running Or Blocked Drivers

Where can i find running or blocked drivers?I have windows 7 64. Yesterday i installed a game, it's a bought download version. The last thing to be installed is a tool which controls the serial and let me play without a dvd (at least i think it is). I don't remember this tools name but it installs a driver that windows 7 64 don't like, and this driver is being blocked by windows. I uninstalled the game, but the driver is still there.

Everytime i start the computer this driver block info is popping up. How do i fix this? Where can i see which drivers is running or being blocked. I want to remove the driver, and i think i'll remember the name if i see it. I checked the (don't show this info again) which i shouldn't have done, the name was there.

Install Upgrade - Product Key Has Been Blocked

I've reinstalled windows 7 ultimate many times due to the failure of my computer, but i'm getting this message whenever i enter the product key:"the product key you typed has been blocked from use by microsoft"i'm then given 4 different options to choose. I tried doing the activation over the phone but that just turned into a wasted call because it rejected the number i entered after following the on-screen instructions. So what can i do to activate my genuine copy of windows 7 ultimate?

Install Upgrade Key Blocked - Scammed?

Been running the release candidate for as long as i can and have been very happy with windows 7. So, when the rc expired i purchased windows 7 ultimate so i wouldn't be downgrading my install. However, after 4 days of using it, i'm not receiving a windows activation error, where it says that the product key i have typed in has been blocked. As i recall, the packaging was all intact, nothing missing nor any stickers torn (i'm very skeptical about this sort of thing, especially when it is $300 down the drain if something goes wrong).

So, i'm thinking i was scammed. Don't know how, but i've typed the product key in 3 times and checked that it's correct. My question then is whether there is a way to get my windows 7 ultimate without paying another $300.

Install Upgrade Product Key Blocked

I have been using windows7 since the start of this year. Yesterday my computer crashed, likely from having two many applications open. This happens every so often. Even the background photo went away for the first time ever. Today when i restored to a previous windows from the day before i had a message that i may not have a legal copy of windows 7, so i went through the process of validation. I entered the same product key i entered months ago and windows still blocked it. Where do i go from here?
