How to get Windows 10 for free | How to install Windows 10: There is still a way to avoid paying…
I'm runnung Windows 98 and IE6.
Since trying to install a wanadoo usb broadband modem I can't open more than one web page at a time. When I click on the IE icon the current window changes and no additional window opens as it used to.
I can recall seeing somewhere an option sayin "view web page in a separate window" but can I heckers find it!
Can anyone help please?
Oh, and trying to install the usb broadband modem software causes windows to hang part loaded with a Vxd error message. I can only load windows if I fire up in safe mode and use Add/Remove programs to remove the modem software. It is a Thomson Speedtouch USB modem. Has anyone had this problem and know a fix please.
Have a good weekend folks - why aren't we at that barbecue?!
The 'Open in New Window' option is available if you right-click a link. This also may help click here. G
Crossbow - thanks; just right clicked the first link and now I've got my new windows back.
Smegs - thanks for the link; I'll try that tomorrow morning after tonights browsing.
Have a great weekend.
Follow up which may help someone else;
I downloaded the updated drivers as Smegs suggested but I was still having problems. I tried the Wanadoo helpline and it was established that I had a Via chipset(I don't pretend to know fully what this means,lol) I was directed to Control Panel/Device Manager/USB controllers and there found the reference to Via tech.
I was then pointed at this site to download an updated driver
which allowed me to work through the set up process without my pc hanging at Windows trying to boot up. Previously, I had had to come out via safe mode and using Add/Remove programs in Control Panel to remove Speedtouch and Dr Speed touch before my pc would reboot.
I think all should be ok....one chicken...two chickens...
Hope everything is ok now.
Nope, still hanging during boot up before she boots into Windows and I'm going into safe mode where I reinstalled the Broadband update driver, unplugged the modem from the USB port and I could boot properly into Windows.
I just have a nagging feeling that as soon as I reboot the same thing will happen.
Will I never be able to turn off my computer without this hassle.
Can this thread be re-titled Wanadoo Broadband boot up problem?
If anyone has any other ideas, I'd be glad to hear. I may not be doing something in exactly the right sequence. To recap, I have both the upgrade for the modem driver and the update for the Via chipset. But my pc still hangs before Windows 98 boots up. I can uninstall/reinstall the modem driver but not sure if I can do the same with the Via chipset patch.
Looks like I may be on the phone to Wanadoo this evening, if I can ever get through.
try using the keyboard ...hold down the ctrl key and press n ..this should open a new window
