Opening Browser Size

When i open a new browser on ie8 it opens into 2" x 13" window, when it used to open into around a 5"x3" size give or take. This is only an issue in a new browser window or a link, not a tab. When it opens into the 2x13 size obviously i can't see any content until i open it to full size. How do i reset it to open to a size that allows me to see content before opening it to full size.

Hopefully this makes sense.
I'm using vista, ie8 on a laptop.

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.

Internet Browser Issues

I'm using ie8 and when online, my search history show's web pages visited that i have not run's with hesitations and short freeze up's. I believe this has been happening ever since installing google chrome tv installation. Most of the web pages that search history shows seem to be advertisement and/or commercial related. I've uninstalled this program obviously and also tried running a malicious software removal utility but without success. It could be a virus but no indication of infections reported. Any ideas?

Keyboard Recognition Issues In Browser

Frequently when i am using internet explorer 8 with add-ons enabled (don't know about add-ons being disabled) the keyboard doesn't respond when i am posting a question/answer in adobe's forums or when i am using yahoo!Mail. I don't use hotmail that frequently so i wouldn't be able to troubleshoot to see if this problem persists in all email applications. (And i don't have accounts for every email provider. ). So far in posting this question i haven't really encountered any issues. Furthermore in adobe's forum as i type the cursor jumps to a new line in the middle of my sentence. What is going on in my web browser? Is there a bug in ie 8 ?

No Flash Player With Ie Or Msn Browser

Flash player quit working with ie and msn explorer on my toshiba laptop in late '08 but worked fine with safari and firefox, so i didn't miss it much. I recently upgraded to win7 and assumed that would finally allow me to get my flash player back working with msn and ie, but no joy. Any ideas how i can resolve, i'm paying for qwest msn but can't watch youtube or any of the other vids requiring flash and it's kinda annoying. Adobe infers it might be a registry problem.

Whenever I Click Any Video Online The Browser Freezes

I have windows 7 professional and whenever i click any video online the browser freezes and only way to close it is shut the program down as it just freezes up and program says not responding. It does the same thing in both firefox and microsoft explorer. I am not trying to watch it with any unusual media players and it does the same thing even when i went directly to youtube and tested opening any movie as i figured youtube is the most common video site/file format so if i cant open youtube i have a problem.

I bought this computer 1 month ago and haven't installed any media players and the only software i installed/updated since purchase that runs thru the internet would be acrobat, picassa, quicken, and filezilla ftp. I have the most current updates versions of microsoft windows 7 os, windows explorer, and firefox . What is going on ?

Microsoft Update Giving Browser Choice

Having decided to install google chrome from the above update, i did so but i didn't like it so uninstalled it and continued to use ie8, making it my default browser as before. Though i can open the browser, links from emails to websites and email addresses no longer work. The message "this operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator" appears and it will not connect to the site. Any ideas as to how to rectify this?

Microsoft Browser Choice Screen Update

I came about this update by using a broadband privacy feature that is offered from my anti-virus software. Since the proxy server is located in the eu, the update automatically assumed i was located there! This update was necessary but it punishes everyone else that doesn't live in the eu because it doesn't apply to anyone else! Why not include an "accept/deny", feature and eliminate all the confusion! It really does impede on ones privacy and is not necessary. It fails to be an update, when you don't have a choice!

Web Browser And Live Messenger Pausing

I have recently upgraded to windows 7(clean install) however i have been getting very frequent pausing from google chrome and windows live messenger. It pauses while i type and then a few seconds later all the words just appears. This happens on both chrome and on windows live messenger, i have tested on ie and mozilla and still the same thing.

The most easiest way to test if the problem still exists for me would be to just open a contacts on wlm, it will pause for a second, the contact screen being completely white and then it will appear. Does anyone have any solutions? So far i have tried reinstalling and also another thing to note is that recently i accidentally changed a background for a contact during a pause and now i cant seem to change it back, as everytime i try, the screen goes unresponsive for a very long time and eventually crashes.

Here are my active programs: avira antivirus, ad-aware, comodo firewall, winamp, skype. I will post my dxdiag if you guys need it, but so far i have tried many forums and no one seems able to help me. I truly hope this forum can solve my problem once and for all.

Ie8 Browser Configuration Error 102

Just upgraded to ie-8 on 3/19. One banking site could no longer log-in. I tried everything within the tools, internet options under security and privacy settings to get cookies enabled. It showed cookies to be enabled?  Ie-7 was not causing this problem and this is only on one site. I even tried deleting the temporary internet files that had built up but did not help. I even listed the web site under trusted sites to allow all cookies but also did not word. The following is the error message: browser configuration error  #102

The browser that you are using is not properly configured for using this site your browser is not accepting cookies. Please first enable cookies in your browser settings and then try logging in again. If the problem persists, please contact your financial institution's customer service for assistance with browser configuration.

I've never seen this type of error code. I downloaded the mozilla firefox browser and had no problem logging into banking site. Other than this one problem with ie-8 so far it appears to run faster than the ie-7. From what i can see, browser cookies are working ok on the other web sites. This is my first attempt at contacting someone, anyone that may have an answer or point me in the right direction. Additional details can be given.

32-bit Browser Not Working After Win 7 Upgrade

I have upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 from the dell free upgrade disk. Since then my 32 bit version of ie 8 no longer works. The only reason that this is bad is because i can't connect to the internet through any programs such as norton windows live or windows media player. The 64 bit version works but i can not make it my default browser and link it with those programs. Does anyone have any ideas. I have tried using the advanced trouble shooter and reseting internet explorer and nothing has worked for me.

Error - Ie8 Browser Does Not Support Inline Frames

Error on my university's website (portal & blackboard) since upgrading to ie 8 "browser does not support inline frames". I'm getting an error since upgrading to ie 8 using my university's website (www.Pace. Edu). One i sign in for "current students" to our "portal"  there are a number of frames based on preselected contact. Each frame now has the message "browser does not support inline frames" and i must open each frame in a new window. I find this very very hard to believe so i'm trying to figure out what setting i must have wrong.

I'm also having a problem with the university's blackboard. When i go to take a test, there is a timer side right page with the elapsed time. For some reason the window right frame with the timer, now expands all the way to the end of the page covering the "submit button". Unfortunately you can only take the test once, so i'm screwed, but need to figure out what is going on since i've move to ie 8 if anybody used blackboard for online classes.

Can't Do Web Searches From Search Bar On Browser

Can't do web searches from any search bar on any browser-"ie cannot display the web page" after cleaning my computer of the cryptor virus, internet explorer 8, mozilla firefox, and safari web browsers started showing the "internet explorer cannot display the web page" error message. I can surf the net as long as i use the address bar to manually enter a site's web address or access web pages from favorites, but when i attempt to do a web search from any search bar on any web page, the browsers cannot load the page. I'm sure some setting is incorrectly checked and just don't know what to look at to remedy the problem.

I was going to leave teh computer for a while so i set it to sleep to conserve energy. When i returned to teh computer, i found that (when i logged back on), the size of things had seemed to change. (The icons on screen and many of the windows i opened, including aol, were much bigger). I went onto the control panel, on appearance and personalization, and tried to set teh screen size back to small(default), however, the computer seemed to think that it was already on small. I managed to get the icons back to small and some programs are normal, but other are huge windows. Can anyone help me get the size back to normal please?

C: Drive Size Is Becoming Large

I used an upgrade disc to upgrade to w7 from vista (clean install) 2 days ago and the size of c drive (w7) is 116. 52 gb! What is causing it to be so large ? Shouldn't it only occupy 25 gb or so ? The windows old file has been deleted. So what is causing the upgrade installation of w7 to take 116. 62 gb ? ( That is not counting the 14. 65 gb recovery partition the system partition  alone is 116. 62 gb. In total the upgrade took an entire 131. 27 gb. What is wrong?

File Size Issue

I'm confused. I'm trying to write video files to a dvd. I use sony movie studio 9 pe. It compiles at 5. 4 gb. Yes. It's a long movie i made. To fit it on a 4. 7 gb dvd i used a program to "shrink" it. I now comes in at 4. 2 gb on the hard drive. I can't use sony dvd software to burn it because it says the size is 5. 4 gb when the dvd holds only 4. 7. I know why that is happening. So i' good there. To get around that i tried to use nero 8, it says the file is 4. 8. Again over the 4. 7 gb limit. So i tried using the bundled win 7 dvd burning software. It says the size is 4. 2 and the dvd can only hold 4. 3. Um. What?

I'm on win 7 professional 64 bit on a intel i7 920 processor. Is the 64 bit playing around with the file size? I'm new to 64 bit stuff. I have the latest firmware update installed for the dvd/cd drive. All programs are to their latest releases. I'm stumped.

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:


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?

Print Job Size Issue

We've got a very strange issue. We have a page containing plain text, some of it in tables and some in css layed out divs, and 2 small images (the 2 images have a combined size of 11. 5k). If we print it under vista it produces a 391k print file, which is roughly what would be expected, but if we print the same page under windows 7 it produces a 293mb print file. Obviously this may, once windows 7 gets a wider install-base, start to impact on our network performance. Why would it be doing this?

Window Size Control Issue

My flat screen tv which i also use as a computer monitor via hdmi runs slightly under-scanned and for various reasons i don't want to change that. This means that i don't have visual access to the top rhs and bottom rhs of maximized windows. This makes it difficult to reduce the size of maximized screens. I have had a good look through the help and haven't been able to find a fix.

I thought i was close when i found "windows logo key +shift+up arrow" and discovered that the undocumented "windows logo key + shift + down arrow" also worked . But if the window was maximized then "windows logo key + shift + down arrow" directly minimized the window and didn't reduce the size. Lso i find that if i right click at the top of a window i get a menu that includes a 'size' option but it doesn't seem to work on my stock standard win 7 x64 i5-661 computer using the intel on chip video (gigabyte h57 matx motherboard).

I get a 'move' icon but it doesn't seem to do anything. Everything else, including aero, seems to work. I haven't been able to find any help on this command. By the way it's difficult trying to search help about windows in windows. Is there any easy way to use the keyboard to reduce the size of, but not minimize, a window please? If not are there any other workarounds that spring to mind?

Website Text Size Very Small

I got a new dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason, all websites appear with text in a really small font size. I've tried increasing font size and even set it to appear in largest text size. The problem is, then it's way too big and looks cartoonish. I also set it to make pages appear in 125% and 150%, which is also way too big and distorts the page.

I also lowered page resolution, but that doesn't work because the system has it set at the max, which is the suggested setting. Any ideas as to why windows 7 and internet explorer and firefox looks so different than xp or vista, etc?

Email Attachment Size Problem

Using windows 7 & internet explorer 8  with bell canada  services. There is a limitation of attachment size of 20mb. A one page scanned document in tiff format is 22mb. Therefore, i can't attach the file. I do not want to upload my files to someone else's server because even if it is password protected, i can't assure the security nd privacy of a computer which i don't personally have control over. Is there a solution? Or do i need to go back to using rogers yahoo service? Today's computer capabilities need to be matched by the services provided. Any solutions?

Cannot Set A Paging File Size

The paging file wont set on the main drive (c:). I get a dialogue box on start up saying that it needs to be set. Each time i try to set it either manually or clicking on 'manage automatically' it wont set and i get the same message on each reboot. It doesn't matter what option i set it always comes back to "no page file" after i restart. This is a new windows 7 install on a new hp desktop. I noticed that several people have posted having the same problem, any ideas? I have more than enough disk space. And i'm using the suggested size.

File Increasing In Size Continuously

I noticed that my c:drive (30gig) was in the red today as far as avail hard drive space. I knew that originally there was at least 10gigs free after installation. My c:drive only houses my windows files. I run on windows 7, 64bit. Here's what i have done:windows. Old was cleaned up long ago installed ccleaner and got rid of all the . Temp files (this cleared up almost 1 gig of space)defragmenting the drive checked for any saved games that were on the c:drive (again games are on a separate drive, but sometimes the saved games go over to my documents anyway all in all this cleared up about 2 gigs of space and got me out of the red.

Afterwards i was at about 4. 15 gigabytes. After minimal web surfing today and only playing 1 game (bf: bad company 2) for about an hour, i noticed that the avail hard drive space went down to 3. 8 gigs!How could this happen, it seems like something is going on in the background, but i just can't figure it out. The windows file seems to be where all the big files are located, but i don't know if i can delete any of those.
