When User Account Control is turned off, javascript will not work with Explorer but does with Firefox RRS feed

  • This would seem to be an IE problem and not a OneCare problem as OneCare has no relationship to javascript. As long as IE is granted access to the network/Internet, the firewall is allowing all activity in IE via standard ports and protocols.

    Try resetting your IE7 settings under Tools/Internet Options/Advanced.

    Try disabling all add-ons and toolbars - Tools/Manage Add-ons.

    IE support resources can be found via here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/iefaq.mspx

    If you believe that the problem is due to OneCare, contact OneCare support -

  • Sure, that was helpful...however I am the one and only "SOFA KING", BECAUSE....I have noticed that when USER ACCOUNT CONTROL IS TURNED ON, AND NONE OF THE USERS ARE LISTED AS THE ADMINISTRATOR (not even myself) NOTHING WORKS!!!!      Help me pleeeeeaaaaase! I have NO IDEA how to change any of the settings to fix anything because somehow I have changed my own account to a standard user as well therefore when prompted to type in the administrator's password....there isn't one so I can't go on any further. This is what I get for purchasing a new dell without proper supervision.... I am lost here and my new baby is being over taken by spyware and I haven't even hardly used it for the nursing program for which it is actually intended. School will begin again in the fall, and at this rate I should have my new computer completely ruined! Sniff, Sniff, whine.....


    Thank you sooooooo much for your time and attention regarding this issue! I'd normally follow that line with... I look forward to hearing from you, however... I can't do ANYTHING until I do, so I will be totally dependant on your response instead! (LOL....or I'd be sitting here in tears right now!)


    Respectfully Desperate,

  • trblu, I recommend contacting Dell or visiting the Vista Solution Center - http://support.microsoft.com/ph/11732#tab0 for help.


    If you have the ability to copy your data files to CD, DVD, or an external hard drive, it may be easiest to use the Dell functionality to restore to factory fresh condition and then reconfigure the PC as desired.
