How come some thumbnails show up as a broken image? 

by on December 26, 2010

Q: For some reason my computer won’t recognize some thumbnails on some sites I frequent (youtube, etc) instead of a thumbnail, it will be a blank square; On some sites I go on where the thumbnail should be, it will give me a string of text (example. open = SymWinOpen; reimg(this);; = SymTmpWinOpen;” onerror=”reimg(this);” />) does anyone knows what this means, or what I should do to fix this?

Is there a way to stop a page from loading in my web browser when I find out it has video? 

by on August 13, 2010

Q: I have an old emachine and I live in the country. I have dialup and the fastest I can get is 53.3 Kbps.

For that reason, I don’t download large file such as videos because you can imagine how long that would take and long before it was done my ISP would disconnect me. I try to be careful about sites I visit and if they are loaded with video ads I back out as fast as I can. Sometimes I can’t even using Esc or Alt+Ctrl+Delete. Of course I’m blocked by programming that probably includes a “stay here” line. If I unplug the phone line from the wall jack, the computer freezes and the only way I can end it is to go to Shutdown, but even then I have to wait. So my question is, is there some keyboard command I can use to over-ride programming to stop a download?

How come Google Chrome says variables are not defined? 

by on April 26, 2010

Q: I’ve recently used a few programs from uniblue such as their registry booster (which unfortunately didn’t ask me to backup my registry) and speedupmypc programs. after running both scans and “fixing” all problems, the font on my computer (running on windows 7) became extremely pixelated, which i later fixed with cleartype text.

I still have problems with google chrome (and yes, I’ve tried reinstalling). I sometimes get reference errors, saying that a certain variable is not defined. Also, on facebook, none of the blue buttons work (i.e. share, comment, etc.) and the search bar doesn’t drop down and give me suggestions anymore. also, most ads don’t show up on just about every site and is replaced with a small icon in the middle of a white rectangular box. How can I fix this?
