Page forward/back


Recommended Posts

Something odd has happened to my internet browser, the forward and backward arrows on the toolbar no longer work, I can use the backspace key to go back one page but cant find another one to go forwards, it has only occurred this evening. It happens on any internet site not just this one.

I have the latest version of windows whatever it is called.

Any ideas?

Editted. Working now after a reboot but still confused [8-)]

If you are using IE of any flavour then it must work.

If 'Back' is greyed out it's because you have nowhere to go back to, in other words the page you are on you have not arrived at by clicking a link in another which would be the case if you'd opened it from a bookmark or a favourite or typed in the URL.

If the back icon is alive then a right click back should work.

[quote user="Chancer"]Doesnt work on my portable, I have tried wrinkling my nose, twitching my whiskers, sniffing at cheese etc all without result.[/quote]

Twas a joke referring to mouse gestures ANO [:)]

As i said it works again after a reboot, the buttons were not shaded just inoperative.

Well its happened again, I tried the alt and left arrow key hint but unfiortunately I pressed the alt gr key  and now I have to turn my head 90 degrees to read what I have typed!!!!

Seriously does anyone know what is happening, the cynic in me thinks its because I havnt paid out for the Norton anti virus after the initial free period, it keeps popping up with more and more scary messages about my bank accounts being raided etc.

a couple of days ago I noticed a new icon on the bottom RH side of the screen which is now the top RH side! it was something about a scroll utility (not mouse gestures) but then it just dissappeared, unwanted crap just seems to come and go at will on this machine, I am feeling seasick now as I have just btried to scroll the cursor and it is behaving back to front while the screen is rotated 90 degrees.

Time for yet another reboot, seems that a new machine is no better than my ancient one both need constant rebooting, now when it restarts I will have to once again remove all the unwanted crap from the toolbar and desktop that I have already removed but will come back again, windows live mail, HP utilities and gawd knows what else.

Does anyone have any suggestions, also what is the best free anti virus AVG or Avast and how do I remove all traces of the Norton one? My old machine had no anti viris for the last 6 months as they had all become so big the machine would not run with them, hopefully that wont be an issue now.

To remove Norton completely, you need the 'Norton Removal Tool' accessible here;  http://tinyurl.com/5vf9hak

Re AVG or AVAST, forget them. Simply use 'Microsoft Security Essentials' http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/security_essentials/default.aspx simple, effective and free.

Use Windows Live Mail and you can destine your future viagra or other spam, phishing, unwanted mail, etc, to the sin bin, http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mail

Hopefully your screen is back round the right way again .... You dont need to turn your monitor around to fix the problem ;-) ... use alt-gr and the arrow keys to get really spun out

Get rid of Norton.

The security essentials has good reviews.  I use AVG without any problems... So, one or the other.

Once you have got over the initial configuration of your pc I am sure it will be a much better experience.
