Posted on 06/23/2005 11:29:58 AM PDT by laceybrookesdad

Hello Freepers. Your help is needed! Please give me directions (like I was a 5 yr old) on how to place pictures on my FR profile/homepage. I am not very computer savvy......I do know where the enter key is!!...LOL... I am sure there are different ways to do this. Any and all would be greatly appreciated. THANK-YOU!

First you need an online place to place the pictuyres. Either a free web based server, or a for pay server where the pics can reside online. Then you need to know the html (that's a language the web pages are written in) to put on your home page pointing at/referencing the online address where the respective picture is located,.

The "find a place on the web" is the hardest part for people to understand. Their usual response is, "I've got it in my hand!" or "I know exactly where it is on my computer"

Sorry, that does not work!

Might this not be something for Jim R to consider? Find out how much is the cost of hosting images and charge Freepers cost +50%. it might actually pay for itself!

First, you need a place to store your picture on the internet.

Then post a picture in this format <img src="www.hostwebsite.com/laceybrookesdad.jpg">

If you already have the photo on your computer, go to www.tinypic.com and hit the browse button. Choose your file, double click, and hit host.

After the photo has been hosted, copy the tag line.

Now, you can either save that tag line on your notepad or on a word document (which is what I do so I can access them again when I need to, after naming them), or simply put the tag line onto your edit page on your profile.

If you have a photo that is not on your computer, you will have to scan it in first.

Here's an a question from me.

I'm a pretty computer savvy person, but I can't find a cure for a problem.

My computer won't open up google or a couple of other sites.
It shows a failed page, not a redirection of anything.

I did a malware, virus, adware search which was clean.
I did a text search through every file in my computer for www.google.com trying to find some .dll file that was blocking the site, but no luck.

I have windows 2000, had explorer 5.5 which just upgraded to 6.0 with no improvement.

Any ideas that retains this operating system without a re-install?
At this point the old F-disk seems to be a close to only option.

See if you can get to Google w/this: http://64.233.161.104/

If not, then from the IE menu bar, try clicking 'Tools', then the 'Privacy' tab, then the 'Edit...' button at the bottom of the box.

Chances are that the 'blocked' pages are in the scrollable list at the bottom.
If so, right click on the desired site name then click 'allow'.

If that doesn't fix it, use a similar approach w/any other security app you may have installed that sniffs for cookies.

I keep getting "The page cannot be displayed" after that and everything else I tried.

I got rid of all cookies, nothing is disabled and have run various programs.

Your link also didn't come up.

Ok, try 'Tools / Internet Options / Security / click on the red 'Restricted Sites' thingy / then on 'Sites...' and see if there's anything listed in the box that comes up.

Didn't work, but it was a great idea.

I don't get this, I can't find www.google.com in any search of the text in files on my computer. I'm clean virus and malware adware wise, but this is tough.

You would think some websites are blocked based on some file connected to the registry, but I can't find it if it exists.

There are a couple ideas here
http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/showthread.php?t=8169&page=1

Just out of curiosity, you could try using a different browser to see if you still have the same problem.

I updated from 5.5 to 6.0 to see if that would work.... Nothing.

Google and sometimes different pages are blocked.

Did you try suggestions from the last link I sent?


Here is one of the suggestions from that link
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];246725


Here is another suggestion from that link

Register the following system files
Click Start > Run
Type “regsvr32 softpub.dll” (w/o quotes)
Press OK
Repeat the above steps for the following:
regsvr32 wintrust.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll
regsvr32 dssenh.dll
regsvr32 rsaenh.dll
regsvr32 gpkcsp.dll
regsvr32 sccbase.dll
regsvr32 slbcsp.dll
regsvr32 cryptdlg.dll


Page two of that earlier link had a couple different suggestions for router settings (scroll down read replies)

I fear I may be looking at the dreaded F-disk.

Go to...

http://www.trendmicro.com

and engage their online scan (select the option to enable both antiviral and security scan combined).

I once had a PC that, unfortunately and horribly, had become infected with a worm after letting my antiviral program subscription lapse by only one day (I'll never allow that to happen again) and all my desktop efforts failed to show what the problem was...but trendmicro's Housecall Online (scan process) found it presto.

Unfortunatley, I had to chuck the harddrive after removing the thing, but I got a new system afterward so it worked out alright.

~;-D


TrendMico will offer you software to purchase if it finds something, or you can go elsewhere, but probably would be best to try to let them straighten it out afterward.

But, reinstalling the OS (if there's no infection present) isn't such a deal. I now do that about twice/three times a year and it works out really well to have everything all fresh and functioning well.

Another thing, if you come up clean after that online scan, is to go download 'SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY" -- it's a free download and is great at keeping a lot of crud out of a PC, AND, it provides a lot of scanning for registry problems and program discrepanices and such...I highly recommend it.

Just go search the name but make sure you're at the official site (or CNET's downloads page) before you download it. Very simple to download, setup and deploy. It's a great bit of software by a smart guy in Germany who desrves all the donations anyone can offer him, for all that work he's done to enable all that good.

HERE... Spybot Search & Destroy But do that online scan before you do anything, to ensure you don't have some bug.

I already did do a trend micro scan for virus and adware.

Nothing popped up for me. I'm posting from another city right now, but later will try the other stuff you mentioned when I go home.

Thanks
