    Coochin, you solved it!! I went to bleepingcomputer.com and searched "undefined." Found a post on the exact topic. It had a looong series of steps that didn't work for the poster. But at the end, one...

    Jeez, this thing is stubborn. Anvi didn't do it (though it said it fixed 7 FF problems). Nor did a reinstall of FF do the trick.

    Hi jwitalka. Yes, I've tried multiple times to reset the homepage via Options. Each time, it works once and then reverts to that "undefined" site. And I went to the LAN settings as you suggested, but...

    Another thought: upgrading to Windows 10 wouldn't help, would it? Might it overwrite anything causing this issue?

    Hi Sudo15. I really appreciate your help and suggestions. Unfortunately, neither Avast Browser Cleanup or replacing the Hosts file helped.

    This has become really frustrating. (Not a reflection on...

    Thank you Sudo15. I ran into a problem: we have his PIN for opening Windows, but he can't find his "real" password so I couldn't start in Safe Mode. Any idea how to find that password?

    Thank you Coochin. No luck, though. The Windows Removal Tool (the link is wrong, but I found it) indicated that it had removed searchlf, but FF is still opening with a site starting with...

    removing searchlf.com malware

    My father-in-law's Windows 8.1 laptop somehow got infected with "searchlf.com," which has hijacked Firefox. Resetting FF's search engine and home page didn't help. It doesn't appear in Programs and...

    Yes, that reminds that, in previous Windows versions, I used a third party file explorer (I forget its name) precisely for that reason -- it had two panes. I think I had to ditch it when I switched...

    Hi Berton,

    I found that thread earlier this morning and tried turning off preview (which I'll miss because it's useful). I frankly can't recall if I've encountered the problem since then. But I'll...
  12. Can't save files because they're marked "read only" when they aren't

    Frequently, when I attempt to save a file in Word or Excel 2013 (and I think in PDF also), I get an error saying something to the affect of the file cannot be saved because it is read only. However,...

    I swear by (not at) Eudora, even though my students were recently laughing at its outdated-looking interface. I've been using it since the mid-90s (currently in Win 7 with Eudora 7.1) I have tens of...

    Thanks Charles. There was indeed an Add In to do with Bluetooth. I wouldn't have found it without the link you posted that clued me into the Developer tab (and the fact that that tab needed to be...

    I'm thinking now the problem may not be Windows backup but must be in my hard drive transfer rate. I'm trying Macrium, and it too is slow -- about 50% complete after a day.

    Disabling Insert key

    How can I disable the Insert key in Windows 7 (not just in Word)? Ideally, I'd like to disable the home key as well. I'm frequently hitting both by accident as they are frustratingly close on my new...

    The Event Viewer definitely has items in it in the Application and System folders. I've looked up the event ID and names, but can't really make out if any of them are significant. In Systems, many...

  23. Is "XP's No-Reformat, Nondestructive Total-Rebuild Option" the answer?

    My 5-yrs old or so XP SP3 system has gotten pretty slow to boot and sometimes gets draggy during usage (and I'm not talking about intense programs or games). I've done registry cleaning, defragging,...
