Windows 7: How to reset browser settings????

How to reset browser settings????

Here is my problem. I enjoy working jigsaw puzzles online. Sometimes when I click on a piece of the puzzle, move the cursor to place the piece where it goes, the piece is dropped and I have to re-click on the piece to move it. Sometimes this happens a couple of times before I get the piece set. Is there anyway to solve this problem.

Another problem I have is that many time when I move the piece, try to drop it and move the cursor for another piece it won't drop and follows the cursor. Then I have to set the piece where I want it, double click on the piece which highlights the piece, then the piece is dropped and I can go to another piece. This is annoying. Is there anyway to stop this from happening. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply, sorry for the long delay, but that didn't work. It still does as I described in the post.

Reset the browser settings;
1. Internet options - > click on Advance tab -> Click on Reset - > check on Delete personal Data.
2. Go to content and click on Clear SSL state.
3. Delete temporary files
  • Go to Run and type %temp% ; Folder will open. You can delete all the files from there.
  • Go to Run and type c:\Windows\temp ; Folder will open. You can also delete all the files from there.
  • Go to Run and type c:\Windows\Prefetch ; Folder will open. You can delete all the files from there.
Note: Temp files are junk files. Deleting temporary files will not affect any programs performance.


My pleasure to help!

Your system spec's page shows ie8/ might be an old or typo entry,
And here is a Disk cleanup tutorial,
Disk Cleanup - Open and Use
Also see this to make sure the three browser add-ons are enabled,

Probably, I just replaced an HP Compaq running XP that had ie8. The new computer is an HP Compaq running windows 7 with ie10.

There's a cool easy system spec's tool now that takes allot of the time out of doing this chore,
It doesn't help with Browsers and security suites being used though ?

After you update your system specs, could you please post a link to the puzzle website that is giving you this trouble?
