Windows Vista; the files show offline even though I am connected to the network

I work in Windows Vista business and the contents of my Home Directory is grey and have the grey "X" as if they are not available. I am connected to the network, everything else works (e-mail, navigation, printing, etc.). Is it possible to get the system to detect that I am indeed online? What causes this? The files are on the server is a Windows Storage Server 2003.

  • Windows Vista, the network latency got bad

    Yesterday, I changed the network router on my Windows Vista (edition Home premium) and this led me to run some of the internet speed test sites.  I see high network latency on the network speed available test sites.  The download speed is very good, but my network on my Windows Vista system latency time increased from 19 ms to about 500 ms.  It is quite a big change (X 25), so I'm a little worried about it.  I don't think that it is a router problem because I also have a Windows XP system that is connected to the router, and he still sees about 19 ms network latency.  Just to be sure, I changed the system of Windows Vista and Windows XP system router ports, and the latency of each system has not changed, so I don't think that it is a router problem.

    I think so the network on Window Vista system stack has been damaged in some way, and I'm looking for help to repair.  My first thought was the restoration of the system, but I can't go far enough to make it useful.  The only system restore point that I currently have (for some reason any) yesterday, and it shows the same 500 ms of latency of the network on the Windows Vista system.
    Can someone help me to troubleshoot or fix this problem?
    Thank you very much.

    Well, one of those moments of "Doh!" ... found another article on the internet, this time, it gives an idea for my system... I was using Chrome 3.0 as my browser when I ran network speed sites that gave me the time of high latency, with that I was worried.  I found that my time of network latency on Vista, as measured by Firefox 3.5.3 is about 19 million, and for IE8 is about 10 MS, which both are very good.  My conclusion therefore is that Chrome 3.0 marked the beginning of a new era of the network latency that is bad for me.  Or maybe it's Eset Nod32, antivirus, it does not matter (when I turned Nod32 which made no difference to the number of Chrome, well off)...

    I had no idea that Chrome 3.0 was this badly inconsistent with everything that he fights with on my computer Vista, but I don't need because I have a couple of other browsers which are very good.

  • Unable to install Windows Vista, the system freezes at copying files and the extension of the files

After like 20 minutes I had this error saying could not complete the installation because of corrupted files or something and then he is out. I tried homebasic, home premium etc. but I received an error even for each other. I went to the dealer where I bought the cd, returned and got another but still have the same thing


    ·        What are your system specs?

    ·        How you try to install windows vista on the system? After the start of the desktop?

    ·        What is the exact error message that you experience when the system hangs during the installation?

    I suggest you to disconnect all external devices that are connected to the system such as (printers, scanners, etc.) and see if the problem is resolved.

    This occurs mainly, if the system (hardware or software) is not compatible with the operating system that you are trying to install on the system. I suggest you to format the partition in which you try to install Windows Vista, and then check if you are able to install the operating system or not.

  • My Firefox don't surf the Internet, even though I am connected to the Internet.

    Excuse me, but my Firefox 3.6 just randomly stopped working. It wont let me not browse the Internet more - it still gives me the error message is "Unable to connect", even if I am connected to the Internet. Earlier I open Safari and Internet Explorer 9 - both, in which, allow me to browse the Internet, and I had a complete connection. But, whenever I use Firefox now, it said 'unable to connect '. And whenever I type in a URL on it, Firefox gives me the SAME error message. I don't know what to do now. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it does the same thing. So now I'm stuck with using Safari, when I really want to use my Firefox. Why would he do that?

    Make sure that you do not appear to work offline in the file menu.

    It is possible that your connection has been interrupted, even briefly, more so if using wireless. Make sure that Firefox is not set on "[v] work offline" in the file menu just above output.

    By default, Firefox 3.5 and 3.6 will automatically use offline mode if there is no network connection. Under certain conditions, after the connection is restored, it can stay in offline mode, without the user's knowledge. Firefox 4 and newer prevents this behavior by default. To prevent this behavior in versions 3.5 and 3.6, add an entry to the topic: config options, as follows.

       * Type about:config in Location (address) bar
       * Right-click on the about:config page to open the right-click context menu and use "New > Boolean" to create a new Boolean preference. Name: network.manage-offline-status. Value: false
