Your family and fiends might consider leaving Facebook and finding another social media site to exchange photos and personal news.
(Unless you are living in a very remote village, you must have heard about the big trouble Facebook is having.)

Here is one place that has a list of alternatives.
What are the best alternatives to Facebook?
The review is fro 1and1, which is a site web site t has well researched documents and reviews. Worth reading.  :)

Which Model?
Do you have a copy of the user manual?
Is it like this?

The manual seems to imply that you have to have an Internet connection to get the control panel to work.

I have a Windows 7 laptop that I am trying to access a Wifiranger skypro Core router in.  It is very straightforward to follow the directions but instead of the nice control panel showing, for me to work in, I get the attached screen.

I have tried the following;

Tried accessing on all 3 browers-Firefox, IE and Chrome
Clearing cookies, and cache

I tried accessing control panel from my Iphone in safari, and it worked fine.  Their tech people have not been able to figure it out, or help me.  They say it should work in Chrome or IE. 

Can someone please give me some suggestions?
Windows 8 / Re: Windows Installation

As Mark said if you have anything stored on the Laptop you might need  you need to copy it off first as doing a windows factory restore will delete everything.
The Factory restore gives the option to backup before continuing, you will need a USB Hard drive for this.
Then if the laptop still has the recovery partition you only need to  press and hold '0' BEFORE and during the power up, this will start the recovery.
If windows is still working a safer way is to make a set of recovery DVD's which you can boot from and recover windows. To do this go to the Toshiba program group and select make recovery media.

the logical approach is normally to backup your current data, use a CD to install Windows off and plug in your Product Key when requested.

what have you tried?
where does it fail for you?
Windows 10 / Re: Win10 freezes even after reformat - but not in safe mode

It is likely the problem was 360 total security and Windows Defender not working together.
All the other things you did were worth while anyway.  :)I suggest you remove total security with add / remove programs, not disable it from start up programs. Disabling start up items is for diagnostics and not recommended as a long term fix.

Okay, well the problem seems to be fixed. I updated / flashed by BIOS and upated literally every driver I could think of. I then clean-booted with a minimum of programs, and slowly turned on more and more startup programs with each restart. Although actually, I never ran into the problem again. Maybe an old faulty driver was conflicting with something (although for some reason it wouldn't allow me to re-enable 360 Total Security. I use Malwarebytes as well so I'm not that fussed).

But, it's made me reconsider how many things I allow to boot up with my PC anyway. I've trimmed the start-up applications to the bare minimum, in the hope to avoid anything like this happening again.

Thanks so much for your help!

This is a recommendation for some recent videos on You Tube about mini PC devices
Before you invest money in a home entertainment system, consider getting a Do-It-Yourself home server.

A mini PC might be powerful enough to serve as a home server for youMP4 videos. Some are small enough to hide behind your TV set.
Here is a video that does s a summary of the 10 best mini PCs currently available. Most of thees are fast enough to stream wireless HD video to two or more TV sets in your home. Some are under $100. Take a look. (Skip the Ads.)
Over on the right panel on the YouTube page also has other videos like the one above. Enjoy!   ;D
