I had a good post going and hit the wrong button!
Okay...I am a medical transcriptionist who works from home. I must use
IE for work. I do have firefox which I love but I cannot do searches on
Firefox for whatever reason. I always get a "missing link" message.
I will give you what has happened, what I have done, and try to be
concise about it.
When the last Vista/IE updates came out in early April, i downloaded
and installed them. Computer came back on, my mouse wouldn't work, not
even a cursor would show up. After several hours of trying various
things like rebooting in safe mood, I tried to manually roll back my
computer, no easy feat without a mouse, and it didn't help. Gave up and
went to bed.
Next morning, turned on my comp and the mouse worked great but my
keyboard wouldn't work, at all. Spent 77 minutes on phone with work
technical support guy and finally reinstalled my keyboard and it
Ever since this install/rollback, I have had issues with EVERY site
that needs an updated security certificate IE says that it is not a
safe site. Again, on EVERY site. To me this says it is my computer and
not the site. I know the work site is up to date, noone else sees this
but me and I assume that E-bay and Pay-pal and all the other secure
sites I visit are also up to date. Again, no one else I've talk to has
had this issue.
I can override this and work but its getting annoying.
On top of this, I cannot log into Yahoo IM. I can log into the webpage
but not the IM. Says it cannot connect to server.
I can log into my MySpace account but it says Im not logged in yet it
says "Hi, Hope" and my page says that I am logged in.
My clock on the toolbar has the correct information. I have tried to
figure out how to reset internal clock with no luck. I do not use
McAfree I use CA Security Suite 2007, which is up to date. I ran that
for viruses and spyware and also ran Ad-Aware 2007. Lets see, I also
tried messing with the internet options and that didn't get me
anywhere. I've also played with the CA firewall and again, nada.
Oh and, I have tried to install the updates that are on my computer
from microsoft and all I ever get is an error message saying that it
cannot do it. I have 7 updates sitting on my computer all from April 8,
I am really ready for my computer to work right again.
Please give me any ideas.
I am sorta computer savvy but would appreciate step-by-step
instructions so I can print it out and follow along.
I'm the dangerous type of computer runner. I know just enough to
royally screw it up.
Thanks and sorry its so long,
