Q: Firefox Freezes only Half of Blank Page appears

Hello. This is an odd one. On my office computer Firefox will freeze and not respond. After forcing it to close when I reopen it only a portion of a blank page appears. My office IT are preoccupied with more critical matters. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Thanks.

I am constantly getting a blank white page when I switch from one program, e-mail, etc. How can I get this fixed without having to purchase RegCure. I purchased this software and tried it, but it did not work. This is a very irritating and frustrating problem. I have to go to Task Manager and delete it before I can proceed. How can I get this fixed permanently? Tell me what I need to change in the Registry to prevent this from happening.
Thanks. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32.

A:Blank white page appears

Hi, maybe if you go back and read your post again then ask yourself have I made my problem clear, what could I add to help those who would help me... try to tell us more about the problem when did it start do you mean opening any program only opens a blank screen, and RegCure is not a recommended program more likely the cause rather then the solution have you run this and what makes you believe the solution resides in the registry, and not between the keyboard and the chair.

When I try to view certain web pages, it automatically changes to the "about:blank" page, with a general search engine. Such sites are: Yahoo, MySpace, any general site where you may have to log into something, including this message board page. My friend is threading the topic for me. Here is a hijack this log, can you tell me if there is anything out of the ordinary on there. thank you

A:auto:blank page appears

Hi, Sorry, but for about:blank and XP we need a log made with Hijackthis v. 1.99 can you get this and send in a new log, please>

You can hang onto the older version, but remember which is which and run it from a folder you create such as you have now. Once in awhile, the newer version will not run but in your case I think it will be OK. Post the new log here in your thread.

While running google mail, I am getting a popup page appearing every 1 minute or so. The page is blank - for the most part - it only says "Copywrite 2002-2009 Google Inc."

This only happens while logged into gmail and at no other time. This began on Monday this week. Prior to this, we've experienced no issues running this on this computer. I've ran gmail on other pc's in the house, since this started occuring, and do not experience any of the same issues.

the URL of the popup page is:

We are running Window XP HE with service pack 3 and IE version 8 and am running McAfee Internet Security Suite for virus protection. The last full system scan I ran yesterday, turned up no virus.

Here is a copy of my HJT log - - I'm not certain its a virus, however nothing else I have run to scan this pc has turned up anything. Overall, the system performance on this PC is extreamly slow - - so there may be other things in here as well. Primarily this is the kids PC - so who knows what things they may have clicked on while browsing our wonderful WWW. Please help if you can.

Here's a stumper...My father's computer shows only a blank white page in Firefox or IE.
I checked network connections and all is working properly. Had provider send out new modem and we get the same thing...shows we're connected but blank white page in either browser. After 2+ hours, provider is telling me it's the computer not them, but I cannot figure out what's wrong. Tried doing a LKG but that's not working (didn't give me any dates to chose from). Can't get any pages to come up in safe mode either.
I'm stumped...anyone have any clues? This started intermittently about a month ago when he tried upgrading to IE8. I got him on Firefox and all was good but temporary.
Thanks for anyone's help...much appreciated!

A:Firefox displays blank page

I'add what seems to be the effect of a self-regenerating beast:

I installed OPERA browser and made it default. After a while started to do what Firefox did - blank page for anything.
I installed Firefox again - not as default broser - an it is working. During installation, Kasperskty detected virus activity, but a mesage that it cannot delete some fle appeared.

So, now I have: OPERA as default, FIREFOX and IE. OPERA keeps redirecting to a blank page, but the other two (not default browsers) work...

Any help, please?

I read all the "read these before posting in malware removal forum", so I hope I get it right.

Yesterday, after a restart of Firefox 11 (on Vista X64), my normally blank start page went to - a site I've never visited. I immediately thought browser hijack. Checked & in FF settings, start page is still set to blank.

Shut down the internet connection & restarted FF. It said, "Having problems connecting to" A quick web search on another PC gives the impression it's a newer variant of about:blank trojan common to IE.

Ran a full scan w/ latest MBAM - turned up nothing - will post report.
Ran HijackThis latest ver.
Ran full scan w/ my Kaspersky IS 2012 at its deepest settings. Found nothing. Though one site I visited probably 2 wks ago? that KIS caught / disabled a supposed trojan, per KIS support. But, didn't notice anything unusual until yesterday.
Today, d/l & ran DDS - not sure how to interpret but nothing jumps out.

Only prgms installed w/in last week were Eraser, Screenshot Captor. Both d/l from devs site, both scanned w/ KIS.

I have a problem. My office has many labs, but from a single lab when someone prints a word document onto a particular printer, it gives out an extra blank page. This blank page is not seen in the print preview unlike which was discussed in the previous forums.

This problem has been encountered only for word documents but not for .pdf files. I have tried even with a single page of word printing, it gives out another blank page. Can anyone resolve this problem. I dont think its the problem with the printer because it works well with other labs and .pdf files from this lab too. Anyways its a HP Laserjet 5SiMX.

A:Word document prints an extra blank page but that blank page is not seen in preview

Is the printer in question the default printer for the PC in that lab? Print preview shows how the document would appear based on the settings of the default printer - using another printer can cause changes such as this.

I am running Win xp sp2 with AVG and ZA free editions. I use Firefox as my browser. The hard drive is 160gb with 2.85gh pentium 4 and 512 Mb of installed memory. I run Ad aware, CCleaner, Easy Cleaner, SB S&D, Spyware Blaster, ewido anti-malware and Scan defrag regularly & keep them updated.

The problem is that the Windows 'search results' box (asking me what i want to search for - pictures, documents, files etc) pops up repeatedly even though i have not initiated a search. The results boxes appear on top of whatever i am doing so that i have to click onto my internet page to make it active again. In say half a minute 30 or 40 search results boxes can appear. I close them down by 'close group' but they just reappear again. The problem is intermitant, but occurs at least once a day. Restarting helps for a short period of time, but the problem always comes back.

I'm not sure if this is linked, but also my inbox instead of showing a list of my emails sometimes changes to the 'google search page'. Again i need to restart the pc to get my inbox back to how it should be.

This problem started around the time that i downloaded a 'google update' a week or so ago. Not sure if this is just coincidence. I tried a system restore to a point before the download, but the problem remained.

I couldn't really find a more specific forum for my problem, as this happens on every browser. Basically, since I could remember, a large portion of websites I've been to appear in some odd font that I don't believe I have on my computer. As you will see in items 2 and 3, my font settings in all browsers are normal. Websites do not care about this.

Item 1: The Problem (small text)

Item 2: Font settings in Chrome

Item 3: Font settings in Firefox

I've never really payed much attention to it, and it's never really bothered me because it would be simple to change the font settings on the page in Firefox or Chrome. Nevertheless, it's still an annoyance and it would make my life easier if I could go without this problem. Has this ever happened to anyone else? It would be great to find a fix for this.

A:On many websites, text appears in odd, half-cursive font

your arial font might be changed in your font folder... Check in start, control panel, view to large icons or small icons, fonts. You should see the arial font in there, is it normal?

Hello, I've got an HP Pavilion 18-5010 All-In-One desktop computer that all of a sudden one day it decided that the bottom half of the screen was going to stop working. It came from the factory with Windows 8. All of this happened when I upgraded to Windows 10 through Windows Update. The best way I can describe the way it looks is it looks like the bottom half is mirroring the top half, but it's so blurry, you really can't make out but just outlines. Now, when the computer goes to sleep, and you move the mouse to wake it up, when the screen comes back on the picture is fine, the bottom half is as it should be for about 3 seconds, then bam, the bottom half goes back out. Every time the bottom half goes out, you can hear an extremely high pitch sound coming from somewhere within the computer, Kind of sounds like a dog whistle sounds like in the movies, it's extremely high pitch. You hear the sound, then a little static on the screen then the bottom half does this. Also, the mouse disappears once you cross over that middle section. You can still click on things in the bottom half, just can't see what you're clicking on. .  First, I tried updating the graphics and monitor drivers, which in turn both procedures failed. So I then restarted and booted into the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI, all of those tests claimed there were no faults. I went and started up the computer normally, and ran chkdsk and sfc /scannow and everything was OK. The last thing I've tried is erasi... Read more

Currently, whenever i start up my computer, it boots as normal but when it goes time to display the Log on Screen and desktop and such, it is missing. The only thing that appears on screen is the mouse. At first i thought it was frozen or something but it appears that the system is running normal. By that i mean, that its doing what it normally does, just its not getting displayed. Examples would be my AIM starting up and running but not displayed. I can log onto my other computer and send it IMs and hear it from that computer. Others can send them to me as well.

Prior to this happening, a few days before i installed a new game. The Orange Box. I didn't install all of it, just Portal. It ran fine for a few days, nothing seemed to go wrong. One thing it recommended was to update my display drivers. I did and it ran fine for a few days. Yesterday, I went to work, came back and the screen was sorta "glitchy" looking. Pixels weren't lining up and was an all over pattern. I restarted it and when it rebooted it was the blank screen.

Solutions I've tried were to see if it was the monitor. It wasn't i tried switching monitors and testing the one monitor via laptop and it worked fine. I went into safe mode and when i did, i could see the screen. i could change things. I ran my anti-virus, spyware, Optimizer, etc. Then tried restarting but no luck. I want to think its the display driver but i don't know for sure, thats why I'm asking for any h... Read more

Just about to edit some sound files until I noticed that when I right click on the file or any file, folder, etc. (apart from the stuff inside a browser), the box is white. To see what's written, I need to hover my mouse and move it. I don't know what caused it. I was just reading some news before working and it happened. I'm currently thinking that it's a virus, malware or those nasty stuff. Currently running RogueKiller and see if there's anything suspicious. Will edit after doing the scan.

Edit: Just restarted the PC and the problem's gone. RK didn't find anything suspicious too.

Any suggestions on what programs to use to scan my PC?

A:Blank white box appears when right clicking.

I have seen this happen before in windows. It does not happen often, but graphical glitches sometimes occur. I doubt its malware related. Malware these days attempts to not show itself, and would not have much a reason to do what you are describing.

Had it been a long time since you restarted?

Could be explorer.exe on the fritz.

From today my PC is getting a blank dark screen while booting, sometimes with or without a moving cursor. Sometimes the blank screen would appear just after the Welcome screen while at other times, just after the windows logo. The blank screen goes away after anything between 2 mins to 5 mins. The last time it happened, it didn't go away even after 7-8 mins, so I had to reset and log into the safe mode.

I checked the Event Viewer and found the following entries in the ACEEvent Logs

Running Windows 10 Home. Build 10240. When I start the system the screen is black. When I go into File Explorer and click on Desktop all of the items appear there. I can click on say e-mail and I can get into mail and read or answer them.
could I use mct and get the latest there and then do an upgrade which should keep all of my data and files.
I originally did the upgrade from Windows 7 Home and that all went well.
this has me baffled.

..............could I use mct and get the latest there and then do an upgrade which should keep all of my data and files..................

Yes. Positively.

MCT link :

Upgrade Install :
Download the Tool and run it.
Then select Create installation media for another PC
That will begin downloading the ISO file to your computer.
When download is completed, RIGHT click at the ISO > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
That will begin installing Windows 10.
You have the choice of keeping settings, files and apps.
No product key is required.
Activation will be automatic.

I am encountering a problem where when I attempt to print, from a web browser for example, the Print Options box that appears is almost entirely blank. There is still an outline of the "Print" and "Cancel" buttons. I have attached a screenshot of exactly what this looks like. I am still able to modify some of the Print Options and Print but I am essentially working blind from memory as to what modifies what. Any advice or assistance in resolving this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all, I use Startisback+ in Windows 8.1 Pro WMC x64, never had any issues (months using it). Today, for no apparent reason, the Windows Start Menu (where I pin frequently used programs) appears blank as shown below. I tried running Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth followed by sfc /scannow in command prompt without success. Any suggestions to repair this? Thanks

A:Start Menu appears blank

Not familiar with using this program.
If you tried settings within this program and it did not help, possible program has corrupt or missing files, should have nothing to do with Windows 8 as far as SFC, which fixes system files not other software files. Any system restore points ? If not try reinstall this software.

I often right click in IE (I'm actually using Avant, a kind of IE mask I guess) and select Create Shortcut. It puts a shortcut and my desktop to that page. This mysteriously stopped working. The icon appears on my desktop with the page title and all, but when I double click it, it just opens up my browser and loads about:blank. In the shortcut file's properties, it just says:

Type: Internet Shortcut
Description: (the title of the page)

and then gives me the file's size, location, etc., but it doesn't list the URL anywhere. It's just getting on my nerves having to copy a page's URL to a text file on my desktop if I want to remind myself of something.

A:Simple but annoying. Web page shortcuts just open a blank IE page.

Sounds like you have been hijacked by about:blank. Go to this website that will help you remove it.

Hey guys,

I have a client at my workplace who has some problems in Internet Explorer 7 on a Windows XP desktop system.

You see, every time my client wanted to print out something, he/she usually goes into print preview. From there, there is a blank page on the first page, but there is some text on the second (and subsequent) pages. He/she is trying to print from a pop-up window with the menu bars and buttons in place.

I have to experiment and play around with the zoom buttons and even change it from portrait and landscape. My client is trying to print some reports and statistics for the VOIP lines on the administration page. How do I fix the particular issue?

My best guess is to upgrade the entire IE web browser to 8 (or maybe 9). Any other suggestions?

My laptop boots & the screen appears. I make it to the point where Windows asks for the login password & then shortly after that the screen goes blank. The laptop stays on & there are no blinking lights anywhere on the keyboard, but the screen is dark. When it first boots, it seems like there is an orange hue to the diplay. I just replaced the CPU fan. Before that, it would boot but then die shortly after. The screen would go blank then, too, but the power would also shut off. I feel like there may have been some overheating before the fan finally died. Now that it has a new fan, the power stays on, but the screen still goes dark. I used an HDMI cable to hook it to my TV & the display is fine on the TV. It doesn't disappear like it does on the laptop. When I set it so that the display is supposed to appear on both screens, it appears on the TV & stays, but it flashes on the laptop for a second & then disappears.

Hi,We know that many things can happen when your PC boots, but one thing that shouldn?t appear is a mysterious window. I have reported this problem, however, which takes the shape of a blank Explorer.exe pop-up with no text and an OK button. I already discussed with some tech support guy such as pc support, click4support and dell support then they have provided me below things, I am mentioning below some reviews and solution, where I was taken?There are various things that can cause this problem, but whatever the source, the root cause is the same; an erroneous Load value in your registry. To see it, do a Windows search for ?regedit? to open the Registry Editor, and then use it to find the Windows registry fold. In it you will see an entry called Load, which may or may not have data associated with it. Get rid of that entry and the blank box will go away.So, I want to take your suggestion that above steps is right or not...Waiting your reply..

A:A blank Explorer.exe window appears on boot

I would before venturing into the registry run an anti malware program such as Malwarebytes Antimalware first. It will scour the registry and your PCs files for any rogue coding causing the issue. This has been discussed with some success here for Windows 8 users: way it appears to be something that doesn't belong on your PC. Other adept forum regulars may be along to provide more comprehensive assistance. I would hold off altering the registry until then.

I have a simple form to act as a user interface to launch a query. There is one variable the user selects from a list box, and the query is launched showing only those records for that variable.

The criteria in the QBE (design view) is:
[Forms]![Contacts by VP]![VP List]
​for the variable "VP List" which (in the form) is a regular list box (see attached image "NormalForm").

As I said, this works fine. And then, following a sequence of closing the query and closing the form, relaunching the form results in the form being blank (see attached image "BlankForm").

To get it to work again, I must first delete the Criteria line in the query design view. Then I have to close the query all together, reopen it, then rebuild the criteria line using the Builder and paste
[Forms]![Contacts by VP]![VP List] back in there. Sometimes, the "Loaded Forms" does not have my form in it either, though if I close the query and reopen it, the "Loaded Forms" is repopulated with my form.

Then the form works for as many uses as I wish . . . . until I close everything again.

My suspicion is it's in the macro to run it. Here's the associated macro for my form:

I've done this several times, didn't work: Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen. Hold down the Ctrl key, and while holding it down used the mouse to click File and then Exit on the toolbar.I tried it using the Shift key.Had this problem once on my XP system, dragging the corners, File/Exit did work on that one. No changes have been made to the computer. No new programs installed. Malware and virus scans have found nothing. It doesn't do it in SeaMonkey. I went to my daughter's desktop, and it does do it when clicking the IE icon next to the Start Menu.

So what I need to do to get it working is End the MSN process, then as soon as i try and do anything (like click the start button) explorer shoots up to 50%. So I end explorer then too which gets rid of my task bar. So at this point i'm left with 2 options:
1. When i try to shut down each process goes up to 50%, I shut it down manually, and then the next one (for about 50 processes!)
2. I go File-->Run and then i run explorer.exe and then everything comes back to normal and works again. And once I reload MSN it, too also works fiune. This seems to happen maybe once a day.
Any suggestions?

my computer Freezes after one hour and a half ( actual time between 1-27 and 1-35)
First indication is pages slow to a crawl then lock up.
sound goes off
Can still use mouse on open page and scroll up and down.
Unable to view Task manager or open any programme
Un able to shut down computer
Clock still running
Can only shut down at plug.

This has happened for last five days
Have run malwarebytes ( found 1 minor problem)
Full scan AVG (nothing)
Spybot (nothing)
spywareblaster (Nothing)

Have downloaded and run Hijack
But can not print to notepad because it says I need admin rights ( I am administrator)
Have taken a JPEG scren shots which I could send of the result.

Thank for any help you can give me.


A:Freezes after one and half hours.

The computer froze as I sent my first post so did not think it had transmitted.
This is itself rather odd as the connection indicator had shown I was now off line. It was ether a lie or it had got through the instant before.

My desktop has a blue background that cannot be changed. When I click on the volume control icon on the taskbar I get the following popup: "Volume Control has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." The audio works regardless but the level cannot be adjusted.

These problems are minor but I thought they might be resolved by restoring the system to an earlier date. So I launched System Restore but it appears as a blank white screen. I was thinking that maybe I should try a new desktop now but I'm not sure if this will correct the problem or is the easiest solution. Please help!

We've had this HP Photosmart 6510 color printer (with scanner) for 2-3 years and have liked it a lot. We recently installed a new black ink cartridge, and it was printing fine (we're out of color for right now). Suddenly it stopped printing anything on the paper, even though it goes through the motions of printing and putting the paper out. We've verified that there's plenty of ink in the cartridge. Per some online suggestions, we soaked the ink-end of the cartridge in warm water for about five minutes, dried it, and tried again. Nothing. I rubbed a warm cloth over the small screen mesh top in the printer where the ink from the cartridge goes into the printer, hoping to unclog a potential clog. Again, no change. I've run numerous "clean printhead" commands and print test pages to no effect. I have no idea what the problem could be. I suppose we could go out and buy a brand new cartridge and try that. But that's expensive, and if that doesn't work either, I'll have to pay ridiculous labor costs for a computer repair shop to diagnose this, which I'd rather not do. I feel like the solution has to be something simple.

Yes, another Half Life 2 thread. I couldn't find any threads that discussed this particular problem, though, so here it is.

I got Half Life 2 for Christmas, and I installed it on my grandma's computer. It installed perfectly, and I could go onto source and decrypt it (seems Valve is very worried about piracy). I started to play, and everything went well. Then it crashed. The sound went on that "playback of the last 1/2 second" thing, and the screen froze. Since my grandma has a dual monitor configuration, I was able to open Task Manager (where it said that H/L2 was not responding) and close it.

At first I though it was a graphics lag, so I lowered all the video settings. It's still set for dx9 and 1074x768. The problem occurred a few minutes later. I've just been quicksaving the game a lot and restarting the game, but that's obviously not working. The comp specs are:
AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 512mb RAM, Windows XP pro (2002, service pack 2), Radeon 9700 PRO graphics card, and Direct X 9.0c installed.

when i did it, for some reason first my computer restarted itself

then when it came back and my modem/router was plugged back in, i loaded up firefox to see if the internet was working. it worked but

1. my firefox skin got reset which ive changed back

2. half of my bookmarks saved have now dissapeared

where would they all go? abit randon isnt it? first my pc restarted on its own now ive lost half of my bookmarks

A:Firefox Bookmarks (half just gone)


Do you have more than one Profile? If so, check all Profile's bookmarks.html files to see if they contain ALL your Bookmarks. I don't offer you much hope, because of the way it happened. If Windows hiccups, freezes, or should a reformat be necessary, you are almost certain to lose Firefox Profile data.

I would suggest moving your Bookmarks from the Profiles folder. See this page which explains how in detail:

Altho this is for "sharing" Bookmarks between Profiles, or Gecko browsers, it will also work for a single Profile. Of course no file is 100% safe on Windows, but at least you will not have to worry about Bookmarks in the event Firefox has a heart attack!

I share bookmarks among 3 browsers, and I still back up the bookmarks.html file every day, as my Bookmarks go back to 1998, and I would be very distressed if I lost them...

it's still new so am pretty sure that the cartridge doesnt need to be replaced yet! and its the original cartridge by the way
i removed the cartridge and put it back and it printed again normally like 5 pages and then the old story!
the problem is that even if i take out the cartridge and put it bak in (which i have no idea how it helped b4) now it's no use!
this problem is now both while printing or photocopying!.. and when photocopying it greys the sides of the paper

A:Solved: HP Laserjet printer prints only half the page!

Actually, it's almost certainly the cartridge. If this is a new printer, you may have gotten the "starter" cartridge that doesn't have that much toner, yet another ploy to get you buying expensive consumables for the printer.

Take it out and gently rock it side to side, then back and forth, put it back in, and see if it prints a few pages again.

Unfortunately, it could be the mobo. I was having the same problem with my comp and I got a new mobo and the problems stopped. Of course, I also got a new cpu with that, so it could be the cpu, but I don't see why it would be that.

You might also want to try taking the RAM out of the pins and placing them back in.
