    Browser Closes

    I mentioned not so long back that the chrome browser was closing after being opened and then getting a report that Chrome did not close properly! So after many weeks of this, I decided to return to firefox, in spite of the so called spyware.

    Just now, I opened Firefox to do a Google search for somewhere, and - it shut down. When I reopened it, it opened on the page that had crashed. Google search.

    So, it either not just chrome, or its a google thing? Weird? Anybody else getting this?

    Give this a try:

    Open the Command Prompt and select "Run as administrator"
    Type "netsh winsock reset" into the Command Prompt, press Enter.
    Restart PC.

    Tried that, no 'run as admin' is there, just the prompt, do I have to type that in first?

    After typing in your text, I got the message needs to be run as admin

    If you right click the start button, or the lack there of it, you should see 2 cmd entries...cmd and admin cmd. Select admin cmd and then follow Mr. Sardonicus instructions.
