Invalid Url Message / Ssl Error

When i try to login to my facebook using firefox i get this msg :
Invalid url
The requested url "/login.php?Login_attempt=1", is invalid.

Reference #9. 1c8a1d18. 1265396334. A8ba61d

When i try to login to my facebook using google chrome, i get a msg saying : this is probably not the site you are looking for! You attempted to reach login. Facebook.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as a248. E. Akamai.net. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake site (and potentially harmrul) version of login. Facebook.com. You should not proceed.

And then it gives me the choice of "proceed anyway" or "back to safety"  

I am totally lost n confused on these errors.

F2480 Printer Error Message

Purchased a new all in one f2480, tried to install, got error message.contacted hp tech support, they took command of computer, installed new driver/software from site. Printer ran that same day. Next day started computer got blue screen advising of error and suggestion to start in safe mode.contacted tech support again. Uninstalled driver/software. Started from beginning and could not get set up. After two days and about 5 1/2 hours on phone, canceled installation.

Took that printer back, got another, model f4480 with disc that reads for windows 7. Started installation and got same error message as with first printer. What next? Help site was unable to help with first printer, can only guess won't help with this next one. Old printer, model f4140 had no problem setting up, just plug in and go. Just needed to replace because of envelope printing problems. Any suggestions?

Error Message - Windows Cant Add Printer

Error message: "windows cant add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spoiler or restart the machine". Having upgraded to windows 7 home premium 64 bit from vista home premium 64 bit, i expected to be able to plug my epson stylus d68 printer into my laptop and have it installed straight away. However when i tried to do this installation constantly failed. I therefore went to the manual add printer option within the devices and printers menu.

However i was met with this message error message: "windows cant add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spoiler or restart the machine", after checking existing forums on the issue i attempted to restart it from the services option. However the option to restart was blanked out and when i simply tried to start i was then met with another error message: "windows could not start the spooler service on the on local computer, error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion".

Additionally when i click on properties for the spooler in the description it says failed to read description. Error code:1813. This is all very frustrating for someone who simply wants to add a printer to his laptop. Can someone please help? Because i am all out of ideas.

Error Message - 0x00000002 - Add Printer

Network printer shows offline after disconnecting from the host machine. Error message 0x00000002 while trying to add the printer. Can't connect to printer in windows 7. I have a shared hp printer on lpt1 of a computer (the host) running windows 7. I temporarily disconnected the printer.

While it was disconnected, someone tried to print from another computer (client 1). I re-connected the printer and it works without trouble from the host computer. It also works from a client (client 2) that did not previously have the printer installed.

However, client 1 showed it as 'offline'. I could find no way to make it 'online'. I removed the printer from client 1's devices and tried to re-add it. I cannot re-add the printer. All i see is "error message 0x00000002". The printer is shared and available - nothing changed and it works from other clients. What is going on? This is ridiculous and extremely frustrating.

Error Message - Cannot Retrieve Application List - Lexmark Printer

When i installed my lexmark x4650 printer i received a message saying "required system software not installed", microsoft.net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue. I went to microsoft to download and got a message that it was already installed on my computer. Now i can't get rid of the message telling me to get the software, (it pops up every time i turn on the computer) and i can't get the printer to scan to the computer.

I get a message on the printer that it  "cannot retrieve application list". The printer prints perfectly fine, but will not scan. I just installed the printer on a new computer and everything was working fine on the old one. The only thing different is this time i am wireless.

Student Purchase / Invalid Product Key Error

My old desktop running windows xp died recently, so when building my new system today i took advantage of the offer for students to buy a new license for windows 7 through digital river. I purchased a license for windows 7 64 professional, downloaded it on my laptop and burned the iso to a dvd. After i windows from this dvd onto the new system, i received an error message when trying to activate the product that my key was invalid. I have checked my key several times and i am sure that i am entering it correctly.

Looking through the support center website (i tried calling tech support but there was no one on the line at this hour) it appears my problem is consistent with that of trying to use an upgrade license key instead of a full version license key. However, according to this thread, http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7install/thread/8f22c375-aa0c-4825-ab4c-1a2b7f669f04the version i purchased should be the full version. I do own an install cd for windows xp from my old machine, and since the machine is no longer in use i should be able to use the product key to install windows xp on this machine, but it seems excessive to reinstall an old os in order to use a new one which i was under the impression that i owned a full version of. Is there an easy solution, or do i need to buy an expensive license for the full version of windows 7 to install it on my new machine?

Error Invalid File Handle When Applying A Tag To A Group Of Photos

I am trying to apply tags to a group of photos. If i select about 10 photos in windows explorer, then go down to the bottom and enter a tag, sometimes i will get at least one error popup. The popup window has a title of "apply properties file" and the error is "invalid file handle". I am given an option to retry, and 90% of the time this succeeds. Any thoughts on what could be going on here?

Win 7 32 Bit Professional Activation Error - Invalid License Key

I bought the 32 bit professional version of windows 7 through the offer for students that windows had a few months ago. According to everywhere i can see online, professional can be installed on two physical pcs. I installed the os on my laptop shortly after getting it, with no problems. After the rc trial ran out, i decided to install windows 7 on my desktop computer, from the same dvd that i burnt the . Iso to and so on, and i didn't have any problems, at all, during the installation. Now, though, it's telling me that i have 3 days to activate windows. I thought that it already was activated- i put the key in, and i haven't used it on any other computers, so this should by the second pc supported. However, it keeps telling me that it isn't a valid license key when i try to put it in now. Why is it giving me this problem?

Ie Error Message

I'm currently running the latest versions of internet explorer. I've checked for any updates and i still can't seem to get rid of this error message. It will pop up as soon as i open internet explorer. The error message: a program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider settings for internet explorer.
 
Internet explorer has reset this setting to your original search provider, aim search (slirsreddirect. Search. Aol.com)
 
Internet explorer will now open search settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providers.
 
I've done a search on the forums and the one topic that it came up with suggested installing the bing search provider and setting that to the default. I've added the bing search provider but unfortunately it will not let me remove aim search as the default provider. Can anyone help me get rid of aim search which i'm thinking is the problem that's causing that error.
