Ie Close Window Won't Respond


In ie if i go to a web page and then link to another page it works fine until i try to close the link and then the program wont go back or close. Like facebook home page, open forum and you see an open request for info or something and click the link it will come up and you can fill the request but when you try to close that window it wont respond and neither will the home page. You have to shut them down in task manager.

Programs Do Not Respond Or Opened

When i try to open certain programs, they either do not open or they do not respond. The following programs i am having trouble with:

Ms paint (window does not open, does not appear in taskbar, and does not appear in task manager on the applications tab. However, mspaint.exe does appear in the processes tab. ) Windows live messenger (opens and signs in, but immediately stops responding). Windows installer (cannot install or uninstall) search indexer (always turned off, does not turn on) windows media player (window opens, content is white screen, stops responding).system restore (does not open, causes start menu to freeze) start menu (after trying to open system restore: click button and it opens, but menu is frozen; cannot click)

Sound also does not play. I unplugged the whole computer and surge protector while my computer was running, after i accidentally spilled some water on my desk. No water got into anything, however when i turned it back on all of the above problems were present. All of the problems are gone in safe mode, however the things i can do in that state are very limited. I have already scanned my computer for viruses with bitdefender antivirus 2010 and malwarebytes' anti-malware with no results. I have already tried to do system restore in safe mode (twice), but when it was done and the computer restarted i got a message saying it did not take effect (both times).

-
I have not received any error messages besides not responding. I ran error checker from the c drive's properties under the tools tab. Action center does not recognize any issues. Troubleshooting does not open either.
-

Disk defragmenter has the same problem as ms paint. (Window does not open, does not appear in taskbar, and does not appear in task manager on the applications tab. But dfrgui.exe does appear in the processes tab. )

Pc Does Not Respond After Waking From Sleep Mode

This is beginning to happen more frequently. I put my computer to sleep, and 5 minutes within logging and using anything (ex.google chrome or itunes), the application freezes. I then click alt-control-delete, but it never pops up (usually works). Then i go the taskbar and it shows a "explorer.exe not responding. ". Then the whole computer just freezes, and then only thing i can do is hold down the power button for a force shutdown. My wife's computer is also windows 7, and it always works (doesn't "not respond") when she wakes it from sleep. So its something with my computer. Is there any solution for this?

Sound Recognition Doesn't Respond

I have a new system with windows 7 installed on it. I bought a logitech microphone and hooked it up. When i went into speech recognition, immediately it said it was not responding. The light on the microphone would go on and off when i went into devices and then to properties and checked the driver, then the light went on and off.

When i try to program the speech recognition it says your current default speech engine does not support this action at this time. I tried right clicking on the speaker at the bottom of the screen and went to recording devices, nothing happened. The only thing that opened up was the volume mixer. What can i do now?

Ie8 Slow To Close

I run vista home premium (32) on an hp pavillion dv6809wm laptop, 3 gig ram. I use ms internet explorer 8 and it runs as well for me as for anyone, most of the time- speed ok, page load ok- not too many issues. But it routinely does something that drives me fugbuck. When i go to close it, it disappears from the screen and from the taskbar, but the shortcut on my dt stays highlighted for anywhere from 30 seconds to >2 minutes, during which time i cannot do anything else.

I can't even open task manager to see if something is eating resources. I regularly clean out temp files and other garbage; i am savvy enough to do all the basic things that are usually suggested first. I also do not enable any add-ons except adobe pdf, do not use yahell toolbar or any other tool bars. Doesn't do it all the time, but at least one time in three. Anyone heard of this one?

Error Message - Program Is Not Responding Close Down Anyway

Error message "program is not responding close down anyway" while using music programs, playing game and during system shutdown. Audio glitch with freezing - please helpthe other day my 64-bit windows 7 started messing up with audio. The moment i try to play a song on itunes it freezes and stays on the 0:00 time mark. I have to ctrl+alt+delete it to get it to close (it registers as "not responding").

Same thing happens with youtube, and any game i try to play. Even when i shut off my computer it has the "program is not responding close down anyway?" Prompt for the little audio noise when its turning off/logging off. When it has to play a sound for a usb being plugged in, it just plays really low static. Unfortunately, i am an idiot and don't have a full backup, only an online backup of about 2 gigs and i haven't updated in a while. I have a physical external hard drive now and backed it up, but obviously if it now working now, that wont do much.

How To Find And Close A Program Using Mirror Drivers?

Aero troubleshooting told me that "a running program uses a mirror driver (a type of display driver) which is not compatible with the aero desktop experience. To allow aero effects to be displayed, close any programs that use mirror drivers, such as windows remote assistance and windows live mesh. "

Aero effects were working fine earlier in the day. I had to get help from hp for some printer problems and i allowed them access to my computer and they removed and then reinstalled the printer files and that works fine now but the aero effects do not.

I would appreciate any help.

Disappearing Buttons Minimize, Size, Close

I installed windows 7 64-bit version a few days ago and i have a problem with minimize, resize, close buttons. When i am opening the new window, browser etc. Buttons are visible, but when i am hover (in fact onmouseout event) they are disappearing. I didn't erase also any drivers, however i installed the newest nvidia graphics driver. It is still the same problem.

Minimize, Maximize And Close Button Disappears

For some reason the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear on top of my windows. This is so for all applications. The buttons are not visible, but they still work. For instance, if i click in the top right corner of the application, the application will close.
 
I don't know what causing this. Sometimes it happens just after i started my pc. Sometimes it doesn't occur for over an hour. I've tried to detect the reason, but i wasn't able.
 
I've surfed the internet trying to find a solution, but couldn't find anything that works (they speak of nvidia drivers often, but there isn't a nvidia driver in my laptop. ) Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

Import Pictures And Video Box Will Not Close

About a month ago i started having a random issue with the "import pictures and video" box. The computer completes the import of pictures and video from my digital camera, a noise tells me it is done, but the box remains on the screen. I click on "cancel" and then "yes" when it asks if i want to cancel importing. Yet the box still remains. It remains even if i disconnect the cord to my camera. I have to end the program using the task manager. I am doing nothing differently to have caused this problem. I import pictures about 4 times a week. Any ideas?

Installed .net Framework Updates, Now I Cannot Close Internet Windows

I recently installed the microsoft updates and .net framework updates. Now i cannot close my internet windows and when i try to run world of warcraft it is unresponsive. Since installing the updates, i have followed all troubleshooting advice for wow ( both windows advice and wow advice ), uninstalled and re installed the program, defragged, ran disk cleanup and done everything but restore my computer to factory settings. I even tried deleting some of the updates, but i cannot remove all of them and so am still having trouble. All of this is the result of these updates. I have never had any problems until now. How do i get my computer to run like it was before ?

Close Lid Problem In Dell Studio 1555 Laptop

In power settings on my dell studio 1555 laptop, i changed close lid action to "do nothing" the laptop still stopped display when i tried to close the lid and use an external monitor only. I found this support forum about windows vista: http://social. Msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en/tabletandtouch/thread/06d8f624-bdd3-4d45-a62a-60c9bcb81f57

Within the thread, i found a workaround which neutralizes the menacing acpi lid driver. So microsoft, please fix this awful acpi lid driver that still screws up laptops that are connected to external monitors! This problem is at least 3 and a half years old.

Window Resizes

I'm having a problem with windows resizing my browser about 80% of the time i click anywhere on a website or on the browser. To clarify, when i say resize, the browser will but in full screen and when i click on a new tab, link, button, ect it goes to the minimum size i use google chrome, and at first i thought i may be just an issue with chrome, so i downloaded firefox only to immediately discover this was not the case. I would assume is has to do with the new feature where you can drag windows and it automatically resizes them to half the screen but i am unsure of what to do to prevent this from happening. If anyone can help that would be great.

Vanishing Window

I have been using windows 7 for two weeks now. Everything was going well until two days ago. When i click to activate the control panel screen, the control panel icon is placed on the taskbar. The window is not displayed. When i click on the icon on the taskbar, the window zips across the screen and disappears beyond the right side of the screen. If i click the taskbar icon again, the window flashes from beyond the right side of the screen and disappears on the task bar.

Every once in awhile, clicking on the control panel icon produces normal result (window shows up on desktop) but then the problem reappears again. I really would like to use the control panel (you know, backup files, change properties, etc. Etc. ), But i can't access it.

Cannot Expand Window Across Monitors

I process large spreadsheets and have configured my system with 4 monitors. Under xp and vista, i could expand my spreadsheets across all monitors so i could view very large records without having to scroll left or right. But with windows 7, everytime i expand across screen boundaries the window resizes to fit into only one of my monitors. (Note: this happens with all windows, not just excel. )I've disabled aerosnap under the ease of use features for mouse, keyboard and tasks, but it did not solve this problem. So my question:  how do i configure windows 7 to allow me to expand across screen boundaries?

Taskbar Window Switching

Under win7 if i'm running excel with say 5 different workbooks active they're all shown on the task bar as one excel icon. Then when i click that it shows the 5 active workbooks and asks me to select one to activate.

Is there some way to tell win7 that when i click on the excel icon i just want the most recently active version immediately activated? Or to display separate icons rather than all stacked up as one?

This isn't just an excel issue, but many other programs where there are multiple instances or data sets open. I just want to go to the most recently used one which is correct 95% of the time. Can i eliminate the extra step?

Window Size Problems

I have the new acer time-line 14" pc installed with windows 7. Recently, the windows size has changed, and i don't know how to fix it! The problem is that the window (to internet-sites, or any other program), are much bigger than before. And is -in a way- partially hidden by the start-line.
To explain better, here's a photo:

http://i46. Tinypic.com/ipuus9.jpg

So you see, at facebook (as an example), is the line of applications, chat and notifications quite hidden. It's not the start-line's fault. Nothing wrong about that. Can anyone help me fix this?

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.

Truncated Window In All Apps

Setting up a new system with windows 7, all displays on the monitor are chopped off, i.e. , And 8 1/2 by 11 object appears more like 8 x 10. Everything worked fin on my old windows 7 system. Only major difference is a new video card. Truncated edges occurs in all applications (word, excel, ie, email, etc. ) And on the desktop. I cannot see the start circle, and the list of items on the bottom of my desktop are half hidden. I have tried monitor settings, checked screen settings, screen resolutions, text size, etc. Nothing is helping. Any ideas?

Window Flies Off Screen To Right

I know something like this has been posted but the answer doesn't seem to work for me so i'm trying again. I have a window open for example the internet. When i click on the icon on the bottom of the screen all i see is a little box shooting off the screen to the right and when i click it back on again it comes flying back to the icon. Nothing i have done seems to bring it back open on the screen. I have run my mouse over to the right and clicked and grabbed and pulled but nothing comes back on my main screen. I've shut down the program and reopened it still does the same thing, i've rebooted my computer. I've looked all over for answers and no one seems to be able to help me. Maybe one of you can give me some advice. It's a very frustrating situation.
