  1. Ok. My dad's laptop is fairly old, slow and boring compared to our computers that we now have, but its always worked perfectly. But we found an issue. He went to a webpage and it said http 406 not acceptable and won't open the page, but he can open it on my mom's computer. I've done some searching and stuff and nothing is helping.
    So he looked under the microsoft help or something, and it said to click start, run, type : inetmgr.exe....problem, the computer doesn't seem to have this file. So we can't do what it says to fix it. How do I fix this???

    He has Windows XP Media Center on it.

    Here is a good guide to follow:

    You may wish to Print this page

    Inside Internet Explorer click on "Tools" on the toolbar
    (Note: in IE7, you may need to press ALT on the keyboard to see the IE toolbar)

    After clicking on "Tools" click on "Internet Options"

    • The first window you are presented with will be the "General" tab settings
    • Inside the "General" tab you can select "Delete..."
    • The next popup window will ask you what to delete.
    • You can select one button at a time, or "Delete all", answering Yes
    Once this is completed (and it may take some time to do) Continue on:

    Still in the General Tab
    • Click on "Settings" (next to Delete)
    • Change the "Disk space to use" to 65
    • Select OK
    Now, go to the Security tab
    • Click on "Custom Level"
    • Click on "Reset"
    • Click on "OK"
    Now go to the Privacy tab
    • What I do in here, is move the vertical slider slighty up or down
    • This allows "Default" to highlight
    • Click on "Default" (the slider will come back down)
    • Click on Apply
    At last go to the Advanced tab
    • Click on "Restore advanced settings" (a bad way of saying default)
    • Also if you scroll down the list, you will find "Phishing Filter" (I usually disable this annoying popup)
    • Click on Apply
    • Click on OK
    Restart Internet Explorer

    Now, please try that page again
