Hi,I am new to this site and look forward to the well informed members that frequent the forums.
I have a question that I hope that a member can answer.
I had my bro who was here from out of town d/l IE 7 and cleanly do an Uninstall of IE 6.
He left, and my Home Page Google was working fine. Then I shut the notebook off and went back to Reboot. And my Google page would not open, Thus I phoned my high speed provider and we tried a few things and it worked and I then shut down the notebook for the evening.
I got up this morning and the problem reoccurred, not only for Google but other Sites that I was trying to access.
So I did a little snooping into the Windows Firewall, I am not a real novice but definitely not an intermediate.
Anyway I found the settings in the Windows Firewall under Advanced to show the Following:
NO Check-marks by FTP Server, which I then did right away and then went and tried to search Google and it worked!!!!! Plus other sites like BC here so I could get Registered.
What I am asking now is whether the Following Boxes should be Checked off as well as I don't want problems in the future, these are:
1. Secure Web Server HTTPS
2.Web Server ITTTP
And I am not sure of anything else there, but they seemed that possibly they should be checked off in the event that I face another problem.
I would kindly appreciate comments.
My bro left me in the lurch here and I didn't like it!!! He had to go off to Africa with his work and thus I was unable to get a hold of him.
I really hope someone can help me.
