    So to make a long story short, I need to quickly get rid of some programs because I needeed space on my computer. I deleted quicktime and a javascript program, thinking I could redownload them after I fixed my problem. Well... thats not really working.

    Here is what is happening.



    When I go to download itunes... it says I have a certificate error. I go check out the "help" section of my computer. It is no help. No matter what I turn on or off, this warning won't go away... so I ignore it and tell it to display content of the next page anyways.



    As you can see, there is STILL a certificate error and the content of this page is not being displayed properly. The red "X" which reads "download now" won't click, and neither will the red X below it. However, the bottom red X will, so I click it...



    Then THIS pops up. It says I can download it... but when I do, nothing happens. Usually when I download iTunes, there is a little brown box with the iTunes symbol in it for the setup icon. Now its just a blank white square... what I circled in red. Now, when I try to download ANYTHING from the internet, this white square is there and nothing can be downloaded.

    I have no idea what on earth is going on. Any help will be extremely usefull.

    Are you clicking "save" first when you that box pops up to download iTunes? Try a different browser (firefox, opera)?

    Try run and see what happens, also you probably shouldnt have deleted the Jaja program. And, why dont you burn stuff like music off your computer to make space instead of deleting programs?

    You should set your computer's clock to sync with an internet time server anyway. I don't use Windows so I can't tell you how to do this off hand but it's in the time settings somewhere.

    This may help:

    Ok... another question. iTunes is installed... yeah!

    I got an external harddrive for Christmas because my music filled up my computer. I just copied all my music to my external harddive, but I decided to test it before deleting it. I deleted a file of music to see if those songs would appear on my iTunes when my external harddrive was plugged. Those songs show up on itunes... but they wont play because they say "the original file could not be found." I don't know if this question is to broad... but how do I get my itunes to read songs from my external harddrive?

    You're going to have to re-add the folder on the external drive to the iTunes library. Doing this without ending up with doubles of every song is kinda a pain in the ass I've had to sort out for clients a couple of times. Search Apple's knowledge base for how to delete and remake your iTunes library. You have to go through some hidden folders, don't remember it off the top of my head.

    Yeah... I kind of figured I was going to have to re-add all my music. The duplicates are already a pain in the ass. Im gonna search the apple site now. Thanks.

    Firefox - or something else - is always clearing my cookies whenever I shut it down. This is rather annoying, having to log into everything every time. I click the "remember my password" box but my browser does not remember anything.

    This is a new problem, it started maybe four or five days ago.

    I did download updates for Spybot around then and I also got the new iTunes.

    I rarely use iTunes (I do not listen to music via iTunes and do most of my managing of my iPod with WinAmp) but despite the fact that I fear Apple and their ways I do not think they are this aggressive.

    I went through all the settings for Spybot and did not find anywhere that it was automatically clearing my private data.

    So: how do I get my Firefox to go back to saving cookies? When I open my browser I want it to go to my iGoogle page, not a generic one with a login screen.

    Also: Is Spybot evil now? Is it useless and I should get rid of it?

    Spybot's fine. There's an choice in the Firefox options for saving your private data. Just reloaded my whole machine so I don't have it installed at the moment, but I'm sure you can find it. Edit, Preferences maybe?

    Get into the firefox prefs, go to the Privacy tab and hit Settings under the Private Data section. You can set what it clears automatically.

    Thank you for your responses, RSW and coldstart.

    Randy, I do not want Firefox to manage my passwords. I do not want it to pop up saying "Do you want Firefox to remember this password?" when I enter new passwords in. I do not want to use Firefox's password manager. I did not have to use this a week ago.

    coldstart, I have permissions set for Firefox to always ask me before Clearing Private Data. Additionally clearing private data does not clear cookies or passwords. Additionally I do not have Firefox set to clear private data upon exit. I checked these settings before posting here. I meant to mention that in the above statement of my problem, sorry that I did not.

    It's possible that your profile is corrupted. You might want to try removing the profile and recreating it.

    It is a weird problem. A couple of websites are doing that to me as well, including one bank. You can view your cookies from within Firefox (Tools - Options - Privacy - Show Cookies) and I can see the cookie is there, but each time I visit the bank's website I have to request an activation code (which is emailed to me).

    It's possible that one of the recent updates to Firefox changed something in the handling of cookies, I don't know.

    there's also a setting to say "keep cookies until they expire" or "keep cookies until I close firefox". you probably checked that already though.

    what version of firefox are you using? what OS?

    I did have "Keep Cookies Until They Expire" checked. Thanks for the idea, though.

    I am using Firefox 3.0.5, I think. Also this is Windows XP.

    Ding Ding Ding Ding. This worked. Thank you. I owe you a beer/frozen lemonade/churro/whatever at Coachella.

    I just hope that importing my saved bookmarks file doesn't screw things up again. Also I need to reinstall my Search Engines and Gmail notifier, etc. Woohoo!

    Wtf just happened to my Macbook Pro?!? It has vertical bands of light and dark running across the screen and I can't adjust the brightness. I think there must be some setting I pressed accidentally or something.

    Oh damn that's not good. My computer is only 4 months old! I don't want it to be broken already.

    The good news is that it was easily fixed this time by putting my computer to sleep for a few seconds and then waking it back up. I just hope it's not going to become a reoccurring problem.
