If those are not working I worry your PC has suffered a major stroke or infection.
As to the latest version for VIsta, I used google to find out.
I have a Dell Vostro 1510 laptop and currently I'm using 2 browsers to surf the web; Google Chrome and Firefox. I also have IE which I don't use much and it needs to be updated. Where on my computer can I go to see which version of IE I have and what's the latest version of IE that I should have on a laptop with Windows Vista?
But your question makes me think your PC has suffered a terrible infection for these prior answers to not work.
I see you have a XP machine too and again, given the question and how much has been written on the subject I think your machines must be heavily infected.
Time to wipe and start over.
Time to wipe and start over? Do you mean do a system restore or buy a new PC? I still scan with Avast and SAS but because I'm not online much with the XP desktop all scans appear clean. Nine years is a long time to have a desktop PC; it might be time to buy a new one.
Will that require me to do a system restore? If I do that I will lose all of my word documents and Quicken data. The machine cosmetically is still in good shape; inside it looks good when I blow the dust bunnies out.
When my brother who lives in Texas sent the Dell XP desktop computer to me along with one of his IT lieutenants to install it for me and set it all up the IT lieutenant did not leave me a system restore disc. So if I back up my data then do a system restore will that return the machine to the new condition it was in on the day I received it in April 2006?
I had an older version of IE on this Dell Vostro 1510 laptop; IE7 which I didn't use that much but when I did use it on this computer a message kept popping up telling me I was using an outdated version of IE and that I needed to upgrade to IE9 so I did last night.
Right now I'm using Firefox more but I've also used Google Chrome in the past. I wish you would have chimed in on my other discussion about my 9 year old Dell Dimension 3100 desktop computer with WIN XP running slow; freezing up; etc.
Last week I installed IE9 on this Dell Vostro 1510 laptop because my older version of IE was outdated. This laptop's OS is WIN Vista. I scan daily with Avast AV and SuperAntiSpyware.
For the last few days I have not been able to download updates for IE9; I keep receiving this error code message: 9C48. I have attempted to resolve the problem by using MS's troubleshooter but no success. Should I uninstall IE9 since my primary browsers of choice have been Firefox and Chrome? Anything else I can do to get the updates for IE9 to work?
After installing IE 9 last week I have not received any updates for it in the last 2 days. Three days ago I did receive updates which failed to install; if I wanted to remove IE9 from my computer where do I go to do it?
I went to Control Panel > Add & Remove Programs but I could not find IE9 listed there. Would it be listed somewhere else? It's still installed on my computer and if I can't do the updates I might as well remove IE9 from my computer.
IE9 is still on this Dell laptop although I have switched back to using Firefox but since yesterday I haven't received any Windows Updates for IE9 but prior to that time the ones which I did receive and were updated successfully were for everything except for IE9; all of the updates for IE9 have been unsuccessful in updating.
I did receive an update for Windows Defender at 3:00 a.m. this morning and it updated successfully. Since I'm not using IE9 should I be concerned that the updates for IE9 are not updating successfully or just not worry about it since I'm back to using Firefox?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
