Find firwall,task mgr, registry

Hewlett-packard Pavilion dv4-1540us note...

Specs: Windows Vista
Can't log on on line banking, they say something on my computer is not allowing me to go there. They suggested maybe something running in background, firewall, norton, mcAffee. How do I confirm this. I can log on to this service on other computers but not mine.

Are you using Internet Explorer? If so have you tried another
browser (eg, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari..)? Assuming
your other web access is ok, likely setting in your browser
causing problem. IE7&8 have a reset internet explorer
settings button in internet options, advanced tab.Sometimes
fixes problems like this.

As to firewall/security etc, what do you have - have you
looked at settings for it? (Norton and McAfee especially have
an occasional habit of deciding to block your access to
specific sites!)

btw - its not something as simple as allowing pop-ups for your
banking. They often use them.

Yes, I have tried other browsers and it still do not work. I usually use Firefox,

I checked and I don't have a firewall/security installed. At least not any I recognize.

Funny thing, yesterday I was able to log into my online banking all day. If the problem was with my computer, would I ever be able to log in? Wonder why I could yesterday but now again, I can't. Worked with an online computer guy for three hours Friday and anything he told me to try didn't work. I'm kinda at my wits end. I may just have to change banks and see if that solves my problem. Hate to do that because it involves a lot of work. Thanks so much for your reply. Please feel free to do so again if there is anything you think of that might solve my problem.

'They suggested maybe something running in background, firewall, norton, mcAffee.'
How many anti-virus programs are you using?
Have you tried going to all programs and then choosing IE with No Addons?
If you aren't using a software firewall have you turned off the windows firewall?
Have you tried tapping f8 on reboot and then selecting 'safe mode with networking?'
Let me know how you make out,
Thanks

Looked at programs and didn't see any firewalls or anti-virus programs.

Not sure what you mena about choosing IE with No Addons.

Where would I find Windows Firewall.

Steps for F8 on reboot?

Sorry I'm not very computer savy but can follow step by step direction well.

Thanks, Bedboop

1- Looked at programs and didn't see any firewalls or anti-virus programs.
You DEFINITELY need an anti-virus installed!

2-Not sure what you mena about choosing IE with No Addons.
In your all programs, you should see 'IE with no addons'

3- Where would I find Windows Firewall.
Let me google that for you...watch carefully:

4- Steps for F8 on reboot?
Just tap f8 when you startup or reboot your PC. If you get in the right sequence it will open up a menu to access safe mode, etc.
