Facebook Error Message

I have been having issue with facebook. I keep getting an error message that states "internet explorer cannot open the internet site Operation aborted. "

I was just on facebook for about 20 minutes and all of a sudden when i went back to my homepage i got the message. Previously i was unable to get on the site at all, the message would pop up immediately. I have reset the settings, add-ons were already turned off, and last night i updated java and installed the latest microsoft updates. This only started happening this week and have not added any programs or software. My avg scans have been clean. I am on ie7, windows vista, dell desktop new (june). Can anyone help please? It only happens on facebook, no other sites.

Unable To Upload Photos In Facebook

Mechanical instructions that transfers a customized (windows media player) special upload link with facebook. I have a hang over from this. Help. I have tried all optional provided selector options. Hey hows it goin. I am a fish out a water. My lack of knowledge is after setting up microsoft lives cross connect with facebook, i am clueless to what next. I have opened, accessed all visible links and heve not a clue with transferring selected saved photos by activating and authorizing permission that meant i accepted their (microsoft media player) conditions.

Honestly, this seems a little like my left hand doesn't know about the right hands information. Whats more, i wouldn't be surprised if i completed the upload process. Again, i am trying to transfer my selected photos onto (my facebooks) selected and pre formatted upload site. I need a vacation. It is 3:30 in the morning. I have the midshift at my home.

Facebook Email Login Problem / Errors

I have had a problem logging in to facebook and my e-mail, i found a way to get into my mail. Once i was able to do that i was able to contact them. They sent a request for a screenshot of the login page and what it said and i did that, however it will not go through with the e-mail address they used when they sent the request. I was able to attach their e-mail to my to my screenshot.

I did that because my screenshot would not attach to their e-mail. So i set up my final e-mail to them and it will not go through. The e-mail page that came up is microsoft, i filled everything out and hit send and it came back saying something about my server not being microsoft and it didn't go through! If i can use yahoo to send e-mail and my service provider is not yahoo why does it go through it and not microsoft?

Open Documents In Ie

Recently i have noticed that word and excel documents accessed via ie (7 or 8) do not open in their own application. Instead, they open in what appears to be half browser/half application. Once the document is saved, it is then shown in its native application. This is a change to the way documents used to open in ie, and i was wondering why this change was made.

I know it is browser related because i have tested it on several sites with the same results, but documents opened in firefox open in their native applications. I know this is going to cause a problem with some of my customers who are not very computer literate. Is there a setting that can be changed to avoid this?

Tabs Will Not Open

I disabled windows live messenger, because it continued to pop up even so i don't want it to. Why is this such a pain? Another thing is the tabs. Most of them will not open for me. I have to work around wherever i want to go so i can open this page and it does not open. For instance, when i want to send an invoice to my customers for their purchase. I click to send it, but not able to. The new tab tries to open, but fails every time. This is happening on just about every page i try to open.

It will open a new page, but, that's the extent of it. So, i try to find another way to open it. Sometimes i have to copy and paste the address of that particular page. If i do get to it, i then try to open that page and the same thing happens. It's a big mess and taking too much of my time. It can get pretty much confusing after awhile with all these blank pages that will not open.

Browser Does Not Open

Intermittent problem: sometimes ie8 does not open after clicking on the icon. Hourglass for a few seconds, then nothing. Afterwards, if i hit ctl-alt-del and the task manager window comes up, the browser will open too. Sometimes hitting ctl-alt-del does not bring up the task manager and nothing happens. I can use the controls to turn the pc off or to reboot, but that doesn't solve the problem. The problem persists for several minutes, goes away and then returns intermittently.

I'm running xp, sp3, 32 bit version on an compaq amd64 with 2gb of ram. The system is five years old and has worked flawlessly until now.

Itunes Will Not Open

I'm trying to open i-tunes from icon on left of screen but it's not opening at all! It used to work fine! I'm clicking my i-tunes icon at left of screen but although for a second or so the loading circle appears it quickly goes away and doesn't load/open. It used to work fine and all my other applications seem to be working. Only thing i've noticed is that when i switch my lap-top on it tries to update i-tunes and (i think it might be real-time player but not sure) but takes an eternity but also doesn't manage to complete this. It goes so far then gets stuck.

Ie Does Not Open But Firefox Does

About a month ago ie failed to connect but firefox did, downloaded ie 8 thinking this was the problem, still no luck, attempted the networks diagnostics for windows xp and it states something like this -windows can not connect to the internet due to a problem with the firewall and to check ports 80, 443 and 21-.

So i turned the firewall off from norton and the windows firewall is off, tried again and the same answer, went to the support at and it suggested to download net framework 3. 5 did that but when the program loaded and attempted to "re-connect with the server" it could not, it made 5 attempts and since it could not connect it did not finish the installation. By the way i still have net framework 2 but can not download the new.

It is very important for me to be able to connect as it appears that my itunes is using ie to connect and i can not update my iphone.

Have To Open Games Twice

Why do i have to open my games twice? I'm having trouble with my games. I have to open the file two times to play the game. When i open the first time (double click or enter), the mouse icon indicates that it is opening the game (it turns to be a spinning blue circle), but then nothing happens, and the cpu usage gadget is rising to about 60 %, usually it's just running at 2-25%. At the second time i open, the game is opened, but the game is so lagged (i wonder if it's because the cpu usage is becoming so high).

So is there anyone can help me? At least tell me what is this problem i am facing. Those games are fable : the lost chapter, gta iii and need for speed underground 2.

.exe Files Will Not Open Normally

.exe files will not open normally, they just give a message saying "choose the program you want to use to open this file" i've seen this problem elsewhere but with a few different recommendations. My windows 7 recently started malfunctioning recently after apparently contracting several viruses - i think i've gotten rid of most of the problems by downloading the free version of avg, which was recommended to me by a friend. However, two problems remain:

1. Internet explorer keeps opening erratically and immediately accessing strange websites (i'm sure this is some sort of malware still on my computer). My internet explorer folder won't delete, either (it says i need "permission from trustedinstaller to make changes to this folder").

2. I can't open .exe files normally. Every time i try to (either by double clicking an icon or from the start menu) i get an "open with" window, prompting me to pick an application to open the .exe file with. I can still open applications if i right-click on them and select "run as administrator", but something is still obviously wrong and i'm hoping someone knows what might be happening so they can help.

Oh, and the little tab in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (where the "safely eject hardware" button usually is") is gone.

Open In New Tab Just Sticks

I can't seem to get a connection with "open in a new tab" and "open in a new window" doesn't work at all. This worked fine on vista but just did a full install of win7. I thought maybe norton was the problem and unistalled but problem is still going. Anyone else have this problem?

Programs Wont Open

I just recently got a dell laptop for christmas and it works perfectly but after a couple days of using it i tried to use the webcam and it would not open. I'd click on the link but nothing happened. No error messages popped up or anything. I clicked troubleshoot compatibility and then it opened but now everytime i go to use it it asks if dell webcam can make changes to the computer. Also, the volume on the videos do not work through the webcam. Today i tried opening itunes and it clicked but would not open just like the webcam. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Mouse Settings Will Not Open

I recently purchased a new laptop - sony vaio - with windows 7. My issue is that my 'mouse' settings will not open up. After i had installed a usb "mircosoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000" which seems could have caused this, but have uninstalled it and same thing is happening being able to open the mouse settings. Also restarted multiple times.could it also be something messed in the registry. I am able to open everything else with no problem. It also shows that it is thinking (circle thing) when i attempt to open it. No error message or anything pops up.

Taskbar - Cannot Tell What Applications Are Open And What Are Not

In the past the taskbar icons was on left and the applications open was in the middle. Now they both are all over the place. I can't tell what is opened or not. I want it back the it was. Also i want my show desktop icon back. I hate the extra step of right click the task bar and then click on show desktop. Why speed things up and then slow things down when i have to close all the icons up because i don't what is open and what is not. Also i hate right clicking the internet explorer to start another one again. I miss xp where you just click on it and it opened up another one.

Cannot Open Items From Within Search

I note that many, many folks are having difficulty with explorer in windows 7. This is likely related, but i can't find discussion of this specific issue.

Windows 7 pro x64

When i have the search window open (i use ctrl-f to launch it), it erratically but frequently ceases to allow me to open a file or email message from within the search window. This is usually accompanied by the preview pane ceasing to work. This is then usually followed by explorer crashing.

However, all of the above are somewhat inconsistent. They happen on a nearly daily basis, but in different permutations. Restarting will always resolve the issue, but only temporarily. It sometimes returns immediately, sometimes hours later.

I don't see this behavior on my other systems so perhaps it is a third party software issue. But i can't associate this with any obvious third party software interference.

Has anyone experienced and resolved a similar issue?

And, who can recommend a third party search utility that works well with windows 7 and specifically with outlook 2007? I am completely dependent on searching my email archives, previewing and then opening the messages from within the search window/utility.

Outlook 2007 Will Not Open

Recently i have switched computers and upgraded to windows 7. I reinstalled my office 2007. In the beginning everything was working. After a day or so my outlook stopped working. My outlook gives me this message every time i try to open it. Cannot start microsoft office outlook. Cannot open the outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The server is not your administrator if this condition persists. I need help. I am the administrator. No one else here has any know how for this kind of thing. And i just tinker around with computers getting lucky fixing them.

File Open Fails

Since two days ago, some programs will not allow file -> open to work. The window flashes but i see no error message, even with uac at maximum. I can still open a file with those programs in win explorer by either double clicking (file associations still work) or right clicking and choosing the correct program. But once i am in a program i cannot open another file directly, i have to go through explorer once again. For instance, neither ultracompare nor openoffice work, but ultrastudio, adobe readerand ms office work

Can't Open This Item

In the bottom left corner on windows 7, there are pics of internet explorer, files and on mine, media player. On the administrator account, (which is my boyfriends-mine is a users account) all those pic screens are blank and when you click on them, it says you can't open that item. Then it asks if you want to remove it. It says those items may have been moved or deleted.

No one has moved or deleted anything on the admin. Account. He says it's because of games i downloaded but i don't think so cause my user account is running fine. He's mad about it! Can u please help me figure this out and fix it please? Something about a dell dock keeps popping up on that account also.

Cannot Open .jpg Files

It just keeps displaying "loading" but it never loads. It worked fine yesterday. I have a toshiba laptop with windows 7 home premium. It alternates between working fine and having problems. I'm wondering if it has something to do with a lexmark printer i have been trying to get to work properly. I decided to just uninstal it for now but strange things have been happening ever since. I would like to just restore to a restore point but i am unable to do that as well. I get an error message and a suggestion that my virus program may be interfering.

I disabled it but it still will not restore. I was unable to play movies, i had the problem where it would just display a still of the movie. I just decided to get a different movie viewer. Sometimes wmp works though. The other one always works. I got another picture viewer but i would really like to find out whats wrong here. The problems are starting to pile up.

Skype Wont Open

I have a dell inspiron 600m laptop with windows 7 - up until a few days ago, i had no trouble accessing skype. The other day, i tried my skype desktop icon, but cannot get it to open - i get a 'user account control' pop-up window which asks me if "i want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer". When i click 'yes', nothing happens.

I have checked my task manager and skype appears in the processes column, but does not show that it is working. My wife's toshiba laptop with windows 7 accesses skype on the same account and has no problem whatsoever - we have used skype this way for a few years with no problem until this past week. Any suggestions?

Unable To Open

For 2 or 3 weeks i have received the unable to open website when attempting to open  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.
