IE10 wont load a page in desktop view

Q: IE10 wont load a page in desktop view

If I click on the IE10 tile in metro view a webpage opens OK.I then click on the spanner icon and select "view on desktop". IE10 opens but the page won't load.
This is quite annoying as a lot of pages use plugins such as flash and these cannot be viewed in the metro view.

Any suggestion would be welcomed.


A: IE10 wont load a page in desktop view

That's strange. In that case I would suggest you to stay on Metro view .

I have an FTP internally that is used to host PDF & HTML files. Previously all users could log onto this FTP site and double click on any file content to have it open within the default browser. We use FTP in explorer view so each user
can set their terminals to save their passwords, hence they log straight into their root folder on the FTP - if we use the FTP list view in the browser this doesnt happen, meaning user 9999 has a long way to scroll to find their documents!

This has always worked absolutely fine until IE10 has been installed, now any user with IE10 cant open files straight from the FTP via the Explorer view. The file doesnt download, the destination file ends up at 0KB so just doesnt open in the
browser. Roll back to IE9 fixes the problem. Using Chrome as the default browser fixes the problem. Using the FTP list view also works fine (however we cant use this since it wont default to users root folder that they have access to)

Ive attempted everything i can think of without luck, its looking like we're going to have to block IE10 or switch to Chrome. Basically opening files from any FTP site (have tested others) in explorer view with IE10 installed just isnt working.
You can however copy the document to the local machine then open ok..

Any ideas, what am i missing here!?

The title says it all. When I open a URL shortcut from the desktop, IE opens it to a blank page. All links opened from within IE and other programs, however, open fine.

I have spent two days searching for a solution everywhere I can locate and tried all of the solutions I found (short of a reinstall of WIN7) and nothing has worked. I have uninstalled IE 10 back to IE8 and reinstalled it twice, but each reinstall of IE8, 9, and 10 have not gotten rid of the problem. I must stay with WIN7 and IE10 for now for various reasons so I need to find a solution.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Hi folks

I am unable to load this website

It is a survey panel, all above board. Ive emailed them and they cannot figure out any problem at their end. Ive emailed another forum too and the replies said that they had no problem getting it to work. SO it must be my problem!

Ive tried it in Firefox and IE 7, all to no avail. Im using Vista; the laptop is pretty new. No problem with any other websites. But this just wont work.

I have broadband, and using a wireless router.

I did have a problem submitting a post longer than 8-10 lines to Wealthy Appiliate forum about 6 months ago. Again they checked it out and tried everything and to no avail. If the post was shorter there was no problem. Really weird.

My ISP webmaster cannot figure out why this should be. Im not sure if the 2 problems are connected. Someone suggested the router firewall....??? Do I have one, I dont know! Im using Vista firewall. Why would the firewall affect 1 site or 1 post?

I've also, just tonight, tried it on my sisters connection down the road, and still no joy. She's using the same service provider.



A:This Page Wont Load in IE7 or Firefox

I just tried it and it loaded straight away. From what you've described it sounds like your ISP's filtering software could be blocking it. Can you ping the site?

Iv gotten a pesky worm or some spam program and than had it removed with another program that searched it and got rid of it nicely. After that I think there’s something wrong with browsers since they don't load any pages but only in safe mode they do. Everything else such as streaming P2P programs seem to work. I tried both Explorer and FireFox.

A:Browsers wont load page but everything else connects

No difference.
I did not have System Restore On during infection and removal. Plus during removal it was suggested to keep i toff, so System Restore wouldn't play much of a part here since I dought itl have a previous good time to restore to.

The removal program I used was Smitfraudfix.
The infection was "SpyGuard" that was installed through ActiveX maybe or Explorer at least from some website.
So Im not sure if its Port 80 or what thats blocked...
Just browsing wont load pages, cuz its waiting for a reply...
Other connections seem fine.
I un-installed MCAfee's SecurityCentre Firewall and no help.

Hola. Im new to the forums and im not positive if this is the area im suppose to post tech questions under but if its the wrong spot could an admin just move me to the appropriate spot. Thanks.

Ok, now my problem is that my explorer.exe is not loading at boot up. I have no desktop icons, no start bar, no way to view my computers files, other than Task Manager. ctrl alt dlt works fine and i can run Mozilla and most other programs. However i cant run the Ctrl Panel files or any other system programs. I tried deleteing explorer.exe but it replaced in a few seconds, though ive heard this is a windows function im kind of skeptic of a trojan. I tried running 'msconfig' and restarting with a diagnostic setup to see if it was a running program that was disabling explorer from starting but no luck. I tried safe mode but still no explorer/desktop. All i have is a background image. I ran Ewido, SpyBot, Registry Cleaner, Windows Defender, AVG, and AdAware all under safe mode twice and still nothing.

ANY help would be awesome. Ide really like to get this resolved within the week, without formatting and re loading windows. Oh and also the only forums i could find on anything similiar to this are old, like 05' and none of the solutions worked, so im assuming its a new build of an older virus?

A:Explore.exe/Desktop wont load.

Hi Nolanite

I can think of three things you can try (before the going the reinstall route) - 1) using System Restore from the Safe Mode command-prompt only mode
2) trying a Registry tweak
3) trying a run of Windows File Protection
System Restore from the Safe Mode command prompt

Even though you can't reach the 'normal' graphically-rich version of Safe Mode, you might be able to load Safe Mode in the command-line only form.
1) Reboot your computer
2) Start tapping the F8 key as the system is restarting
3) Choose "Safe Mode with Command Prompt"
4) Logon as "Administator", and type the password (or logon as a user with full administrative rights & type that password)
5) From the command prompt, type:
C:> cd \Windows\system32\restore (where C: is the system drive)
6) From the command prompt, type
C:\Windows\system32\restore> rstrui.exe
7) Follow the prompts, choosing a restore point from before the disappearance of the desktop, et al.


Registry Tweak

Another quick-fix attempt would be to try one of Kelley's Korner's Registry tweaks to restore the desktop. You can try the tweak in the right-hand column of row #195, entitled "Restore Desktop Icons & Taskbar". It runs as a script, so here's the instructions to note:

A:Desktop/Explorer Wont Load up at all!

Have you tried using the WinXP CD before booting, so that your BIOS can recognize it and run the repair program(s) on it? Before doing this, you may need to change a BIOS setting so that it looks for a boot CD before a hard drive or any other boot device. Or by saying "unusable," do you really mean that it won't work at all, even, say, in another computer or outside of the operating system? If it really is unusable, you might be able to get a friend's working CD/DVD drive and connect it to your PC and use it to repair it.
If you are connected to the internet and you use it, the reason for your problems may be that you don't have anti-virus software installed.

Hi I really hope someone can help me!

I have a fujitsu lifebook with windows 7 on it
I had an error message pop up when i tried to click on google chrome this morning, so I closed it and attempted to re-start my laptop, then AVG pops up telling me I have a virus so I allowed it to "clear" said virus. I then restarted my laptop and it would not go to the login page.

I attempted system repair to no avail, I then allowed chkdsk to run and there were a lot of "security ID repairs", I have also tried f12 and booting from my windows 7 installation disk. Non of these options have worked

I get the fujitsu screen, then the windows loading screen then instead of the log in screen which would be next, I get a black screen with the cursor visable and you can move the cursor but nothing else works and no keyboard shortcuts work

someone please help.
I've been told to restore the OS but i cannot afford to lose all the files on my laptop

A:Laptop wont load past windows page, stuck with black screen and cursor

Since AVG 'cleaned' a virus - all bets r off as the problem could be a leftover from the virus. apparently, a (some) system files r damaged. Going forward, u might not want to run normally as an admin user. That helps keep malware from invisibly installing if the AV does not catch it. 1. have u tried booting to safe mode? If u can get there try this clk Start - type CMD -- rt clk cmd.exe and select Run as Admin when the dos window opens type 'sfc /scannow' let it run retry boot when done. 2. If u can't get there or that doesn't work put ur windows CD in and boot to that. Run the repair install - or it might be called upgrade. Just do NOT do a CLEAN install. That will not erase any of your data. 3. If that does not work If u get a Hiren's boot disk, or something similar. U can boot to that and most likely copy ur data from the drive prior to doing a clean install. This assumes the drive isn't corrupt which appears to be true since it gets to the Windows screen. 4. If not u will have to remove the drive and connect it to another computer as an external HDD to copy the data. 5. If none of the above works - u have come to the complete understanding of the word BACKUP................ good luck

The problem: IE10 seems to now default all web sites to "Internet Explorer 10 Compatibility View" browser mode.  

This will in turn change the Documents mode to something other than "Standards" unless each web page has explicitly defined : <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible">, and often screw up how things are rendered.  The user is able to
change it manually via the f12 menu, but it reverts back the next time IE is opened.

Also: the broken paper icon in the address bar is no longer displayed for any page, and "tools > compatibility view" is greyed out.

It's this same way for any PC at my business, and regardless of what's in the compatibility view list.  And yes "display all websites in compatibility view" is not checked.

Up until some point in the last year, it didn't work this way.  Before: it would default to "Internet Explorer" unless the web site was explicitly included in the compatibility view list.

Can anyone still on IE10 recreate this?  Was there a windows update at some point in the recent past that has affected this behavior?  Or does this have to be something in my environment?

Interesting thread here. Basically if you want to keep using FTP in explorer view with normal functionality then steer well clear of IE10 and IE11.

IE10 wont allow me to open FTP files in Explorer View

Sadly MS shows no inclinations to fix. I feel IE10 and IE11 are a backwards step over IE9 which ticked along very nicely. Trouble is we will all have to use them sooner or later as major players like Google drop support.

I do personally feel MS with Windows 8 and IE10/11 are forcing change for the sake of change. Anyways it's an interesting thread nonetheless and just wanted potential users to to be aware. Of course most of the masses will not use FTP but just in case.

Seems the resolution was simply to drag the file to your desktop and wait for it to download and double click it to open,

It started with the unability for the OS to load properly from the disk; it would hang halfway through; the disk was then chkdsk'd which resulted in several errors was found and subsequently fixed.Upon next boot, the OS seemed to load properly, but not long after a system crash was apparent: "%systemroot%/config/SECURITY is missing or corrupt."The SECURITY hive then was replaced (via the recovery console) with its counterpart in %windir%/repair which immediately resulted in lsass.exe throwing errors upon startup; the replace process then was repeated for the remaining hives until lsass was satisfied (reported no errors). Then for a moment one could think all was good (no moaning system services, no BSODs), but it was not (as the title also reveals):You aren't able to come past the login screen; as soon as you enter, a white screen appears and the next second you're back on the login screen again.

Hello. Thanks for taking a moment to review my issue!

Problem details:

The computer is joined to a domain, all users exhibit the problem on this computer. Everything appears to work fine on the computer with the exception of explorer.exe. The issues seems to be this. The system boots up, and the user logs in, and the desktop is displayed. They can do everything on the computer they need to do until they try to double click my computer, or try to load control panel or any other features that use the windows explorer as a base. What happens exactly is nothing. You make the double click on the icon or right click and choose open and your cursor switches to the pointer with hour glass for a brief moment and then goes back to normal. No window opens up. The system runs without errors aside from this symptom.

What I have tried:

I ran Malware bytes and it did find some suspicious things and cleaned them out. I thought this would fix the issue since it had an entry that was related to explorer in the registry it was fixing. After the reboot the issues still persists and Malware bytes now says the system is clean. I ran a HiJackThis and found nothing unusual that i can tell. I have attached this log for your own review. I have run PROCMAN, and found that there are some suspicious things that happen with explorer.exe where it will open a file similar to "c:\windows\M[][][]O[][]" where [] is a box, and the O is a circle. They are special characters and the s... Read more

Backstory (skip if you need)
I'm fixing someones laptop, It was slow and taking 30 minutes to startup, i did the usually virus scan and restarted, then it was stuck in an auto repair loop. I used a windows 8 Install CD from microscoft. None of the options in it would work, install (key doesnt match) reset (missing partition), image recovery (cant find an image), restore (no restore point), etc.
Used command prompt, did stuff like bootrec, bcdedit, diskpart, and chkdsk. After it ran chkdsk it finally loaded windows. I reset/reinstalled the OS completely. Fixed, restarted, running smooth. Owner said it was working great for a day, then after turning it back on it was in an auto repair loop.
It's stuck in a preair loop, I can't even boot from the 8 CD!

Tell us what specifically you are doing and what error message your receiving. You wouldn't "use the internet through task manager" If you have an internet connection, then you would just use your Browser, Internet Explorer, Firefox or whatever.

I don't know what happened but when I open IE all I get is a blank page. I have my home page set to MSN which I have set many times but it still occurs. In addition, I have the BING toolbar loaded on the opening page which displays a blinking courser inside the BING box. If I place MSN inside the box it pulls up a blank page but if I put GOOGLE inside the box it opens with no problem. Any ideas appreciated.


A:IE10 will not load

Hello enigma,

You might see if completely resetting IE10 may help. Since you can't start IE10, you'll need to open "Internet Options" via the Control Panel (icons view) instead to do so.

PC info from another thread:

The other day, a blue screen error appeared on my PC about ati2dvag/infinite loop. I looked online for help and came across a number of different forums. Most of the responses stated that possibly my driver needed updating.

From looking at the Display Driver in the Device Manager, I was able to see that I have an ATI Radeon X1550. I went to the amd website to update my driver and whilst doing so, I got a message saying it couldnt locate a specific file. Then the installation wizard appeared and I followed the steps but then I got a message stating that the one I have installed is not digitally signed and it could affect the performance. I had no idea what this meant but the warning message put me off so I cancelled it.

I then tried to open Media Centre but I was unable to watch live TV because I kept getting an error message the video card had an error or was not installed properly so I went back to the Device Manager and the icon on the first drive indicated the device had been disabled (red x) and the second driver indicated the device wasnt responding/working properly (exclamation mark in a yellow triangle) so I reinserted the installation CD and opened setup. It was successful so I tried to open MC again but I got another blue screen error.

On only this Win 7 Ultimate, 64bit machine I cannot save a webpage in any of the three options - webpage complete, Web Archive (Mht), or Web page HTML only. The saves work fine when saving to my C: drive but I save all my personal data on an NAS. When saving to the NAS from this particular machine it shows the progress bar as though it is saving, then flashes up the "This Web Page Could not be saved". The page is there and usually will open but not always and sometimes opening the page takes forever.

I suspect something in the firewall is not set right and I need help on what to look for. When I go into the firewall for the private network I see pages and pages of rules. What rule should I look for specifically to allow web pages to be saved to my private networked NAS? Would it be an incoming or outgoing rule or would both be affected?

My wife has another Win 7 (home premium) which saves web pages to the NAS ok, and I have a Win 8.1 netbook that has no problems saving web pages using IE10.

I've tried searching all over the net, but I wasn't able to find anyone reporting this issue (or, maybe I just couldn't find the right key word to describe this issue). The problem is, when I have multiple tabs in IE10, it begins to have this weird issue where if I click on a different tab to switch to that page, IE10 still displays the page I was on before. The funny thing is, if I move my mouse over the page, the location of the links, etc are actually of the new page I switched to. If I view page source, it also confirms that I am in fact on the right page, so it's just the display that's wrong. I already tried resetting IE10, but the problem came right back. I don't have this issue with any other browsers. If anyone knows any fix for this, please let me know. Please don't tell me to use different browsers, as I don't consider that a solution (I already have firefox, and I have a reason why I want to keep using both IE and firefox on my PC, chrome is out of the window d/t its sneaky privacy invasion features).

Thank you,

Try this;

Go to Control Panel and select Internet Options OR select the Gear icon from inside Internet Explorer and select Internet Options

Select the General tab and in the Browsing history section select the Delete button.

Now go to the Advanced tab, select Restore advanced settings and Reset, then press OK and restart your computer.

If you do not see a speed increase, try updating Flash:

If you still don't notice a difference, your web browser have an extension slowing the games down.

It is working on one computer, but I can't identify the difference. Both computers are running windows 7 and the lastest version of java. The one where it works is also running Java 6 Update 27 (64-bit) and Java Update 30, but installing these on the other computer was no help. I'd like to add that it worked on the one computer because of a user account. That user account works on other computers. It is an admin account, but the only admin account that works.

Any ideas why this would be happening?

Have tried:
Running IE in comparability mode
resetting IE

My thoughts are that this still might have something to do with java, but I'm not sure what to do about it. Switching to a different browser/IE version is not an option.

Hi Everybody,

If anybody could give me some pointers on my problem I would really appreciate it

I have Windows 8.1 on my HP Pavilion Laptop. I have this problem where after starting my PC, logging in and being dropped into the Panel view, I wait for about 10 seconds... and then the PC starts thrashing and constantly flicking between the traditional Desktop and the Panel view without me touching a button / clicking on anything!

The only things I can access on my laptop are:

Task ManagerGoogle Chrome (by clicking on the icon very quickly in Panel View before it flicks back to traditional Desktop)

This problem literally prevents me accessing anything else. As soon as I start opening something in traditional desktop mode, the pc flicks straight back to Panel view and it is lost! Even if I am quick enough to click on an application, it doesn't even load it!

I am almost certain it is some piece of software that I must have picked up along the way. I've been trying to use my Norton antivirus to scan and detect it... but I cannot even open that to scan, due to this very problem.

I even tried using the Trend Micro Home Call service, which I could access through Chrome of course. Unfortunately as soon as I tried downloading it I was told it had failed as there is no access to the internet(!?) very odd indeed.

I have not encoutered any details of this problem on the internet but if anybody could assist with this I would appreciate it so much! Thank you guys

Good afternoon. Yesterday, I downloaded an update for my husband's HP printer onto his computer. At the same time, it downloaded BING, which we have never used. After that, we noticed his firewall was off, and we were unable to get it turned back on. Also, we cannot download any security. And his home page has changed. We are unable to change it back. We have Microsoft security essentials which runs regularly. In doing some research, it appears his browser has been hijacked.

Can someone please help me get his computer UN-hijacked?

A:IE10 browser hijacked. Unable to load firewall or download programs.

Here are some things you might want to try:
1. Run a full scan on Security Essentials? If so, did you find any viruses?
2. Go to Start>Run>msconfig and go to the startup tab and make sure that only the items that are important (eg. Windows 7, Intel Software, Microsoft Security Essentials) items are selected; you may also be able to find the item if it has made a shortcut here.
3. Try going into safe mode and see if anything changes.

First off I suddenly got the Antivirus Pro. Went to your forums and tried the removal guide, went to taskbar and tried to end process on antiviruspro.exe and svchast.exe. Then I downloaded Malwarebytes and tried to scan, about 10 seconds into the scan the program shutdown. I also tried to run SDfix and as soon as it started scanning it shut down. I rebooted and started in safe mode with networking, when I did this Windows Antivirus 2010 also appeared on my desktop along with antivirus pro. Next I downloaded the trial of avast and did the scan on startup since I couldn't get any programs to run. During the scan it said it deleted Antispyware 2010 along with about 5 other trojans that I forget what they are and failed to write down. After the scan I rebooted in safemode with networking once again and now my desktop will not load. The only way I can try to open a program is through the taskbar using ctrl alt del. Tried running explorer.exe, tried Old Timer program, tried fix.reg w/notepad and still nothing happens. I don't know what else to try to get my desktop back. Im not even sure if I got rid of either of the viruses, they don't show up in processes in the taskbar but I cant get anything to work. Every program except internet explorer shuts down or wont open altogether. I hope I have explained all of this well enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am facing several major issues with IE10:

1. Autocomplete does not work for most sites unless one switches to "compatibility view". I am unable to save usernames, passwords and form data in normal mode.
2. When I login to the Gmail web interface, I am unable to delete messages in any folder (Spam, Sent & Trash) - they keep reappearing. However if I login from a Win7/IE9 machine, I am able to delete messages without a problem.

It seems to me that IE10 (Desktop) on Win8 has major compatibility problems with many websites.

- Try resetting IE10 (internet options, advanced)

Follow the steps below to install a new copy of Windows:
1. To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation you will need to start or boot your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive. Insert your Windows 7 disc in your CD/DVD drive. Please note: will need to restart or turn on your system with the disc in the drive. 
2. After turning on your system with the CD in the drive go ahead and press any key when prompted during your computer post routine and then follow the instructions presented on screen. If you don’t see this go back to step 1 to setup your BIOS to boot from CD or USB flash drive depending on your installation media.
3. On the Install Windows page simply enter your preferences and click next.

When I boot up the pc no matter who's login i use (mine or the wifes) when the desktop loads, the taskbar down the bottom is frozen. When i move the mouse over it there is just a hour glass.

Also certain programs won't load up like I-tunes or the defrag yet when i go into processes the itunes exe is showing.

Internet explorer seems to work ok.

I have Avira anti-virus & I am using Adaware, Spybot & spywareguard.

My system details are:
Windows XP sp:3

here is my hijack this log: Please help me & thank you in advance.

I dont know if this is posted in the right area but I'm so desperate to get my laptop working its unreal.
First it started off with my laptop crashing, I had totally forgot it needed to do a windows update and turned off my laptop in hopes that it would work properly.
After that my laptop has not been working. The machine turns on and gives me two options. Start windows normally or do a repair. Upon starting windows normally, it loads so far before sending me back to the two options of start windows normally or repair. On the second time I clicked repair. My laptop then goes so far before presenting me with a blue screen that is usually the screen where my accounts are. The cursor still moves but it loads no further even after leaving it an hour. I decided to make a repair disk, hoping that the problem was because of windows. the disk loads, gives me a choice on the keyboard language then does nothing. I honestly have no idea what to do, I want to keep all the files safe on my computer as I havent backed them up and I have worked so hard on the projects. someone please help

Do a hardware/software reset with your BIOS:Shut down and turn off the computer.
Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
"Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
(If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware

After doing those steps, clear your CMOS by entering the BIOS (see your system manual for steps to enter the BIOS), going to the EXIT screen, and loading setup/optimized defaults.

I have problem with Muliple Broswer tabs (self) opening & pointing to "IE10 start here" pages and when using Outlook it goes to "start here" pages when trying to type in Outlook emails. It is quite something to see over a hundred cascading windows trying to get you started with Welcome to Microsoft Internet Explorer 10... and another one is the

Same problem whether typing any characters in the search engine boxes on IE10 or google chrome. New tabs open "by themselves" and attempt/redirect to go to start MSN/Bing pages. They dont all load fully and new tabs open. Over 180 tabs "self-opened" last time in google chrome. I tried google chrome after having this happen in IE10 - so it seems to be a windows 8 issue. Maybe other programs are affected but ive only tried Outlook 2010 and Web Browsers...thats enough for now!

This is a new HP Desktop PC with factory fresh windows 8 Home premium and MSOffice Pro Plus 2010 install. Have changed all browsers to home page of google but IE10 or chrome if i make it the defalut browser and still self opens and tries to go to MS start pages.

I closed IE10 and/or chrome with task manager and created a dump file and also set windows error self reporting to auto (because it was set to manual by default) and it should be running self error reporting windows app like in previous Windoes versions but there is nio indication it is sending anything to MS. Any fix... Read more

A:40 or more IE10 tabs open after typing in Outlook or IE10

Yep...sure enough there was no other users out there with similar problem so must be something unique to equipment.

PC was set up with HP wired Keyboard and issues after testing installation. New Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse was issued and after a while (few days) problem began to appear.

F1 key was sticking. Beat it up a bit and problem gone. Hold down the F1 key and same problems...multiple browser windows opening, help windows opening etc depending on application you are in. haha...stupid. To think... blamed windows 8 for this problem when it is only everything else that is wrong that is windows 8 fault.

None of my internet browsers including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, mozilla or the new one that comes with Windows 10 will open or load. Also when I click on my Windows start button it does nothing as well as the dialogue next to it that says I'm Cortana ask me anything. I have run Malwarebytes anti-malware and it has identified 0 threats. I have adware antivirus but it won't run. Any help would be appreciated thank you!
