they will not open webpages with any browser.
The HJT log would show:
what OS ya' got & it's update status
what browser (IE) update ya' got
and a lot more, too.
i imagine my computer in the same shape yours are now when thinkin' "how to fix this & communicate that to you"
Am I lookin' at a homepage when this problem starts?
HJT will tell me details.
What other programs running when this problem occurs? Might be they are to blame.
HJT will help answer that, too. Help, not tell me.
I know that in the HJT log forum, it says never to do anything until one of them says something.
well, thats sorta the idea, but you do have to operate independently to get through a fix. And it helps to reply back when you are involved in one.
I noticed you hadn't done that earlier this month, BTW.
I read two out of three have this problem: Internet access, Computers won't open pages
That doesn't tell me enough.
By pinging you are told that the internet access is up and running.
That doesn't tell me enough. either. Firewall involved?
HJT might enumerate that question for someone who might have an answer.
I don't have an answer, but if you post...
I'm not the only viewer of the post.
They too might desire more information.
Experts of operating systems?
Yes, they would be very helpful to thousands of people posting here. On a daily basis I'm certain they could solve many problems.
One might read this and answer.
A serious problem, by the sounds of it. One not likely to be caused by the OS alone. A HijackThis log would be helpful, and since two computers are involved, I guess that means two of 'em. You use three computers. What makes the third different also comes to mind when contemplating your problem. What makes the third different?
i still think details can help narrow down the possibilities.
Comments attached to HJT logs are helpful, also.
A hijack I really didn't think was the answer, either.
A defective browser maybe. Damaged file.
Do you use more than 1? What makes the third different?
