Xfinity Toolbar. UGH!!

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I kept getting this little box popping up every now and then to download the new Xfinity toolbar. So finally I gave in and did it. Now I lost the whole bar across the top, no place to put in a search and lost my 'verify page' button. That I always counted on when I lost my e-mail for sparkpeople. Don't know what to do to get back my old tool bar if even possible.
I only have my Google toolbar to put in a search.

Any ideas if I can go back to an old version of a tool bar?

new update, I do have a tool bar now, but not with the buttons I need and nothing to add buttons. I mainly need the 'verify' button, to allow sites, that may otherwise be not accepted by Xfinity.

    I also google for help when I have computer problems. You are probably looking for a view toolbars menu.

    I don't know just when the pop ups started for the tool bar, but it was frustrating. A friend said that I should always download any ujpdates so I figured that was one.

I used to get regular updates to download but don't get them any more.
Sometimes got them when I was logging off.

    You can always do a "system restore". Which restores your computer back to the way it was before you downloaded the toolbar.

I'm not sure what kind of operating system you have but it's easily found:

System Tools
System Restore

You might also want to restore back to before you started to get the pop-up for the tool bar.

Sorry but why you clicked to have it downloaded is beyond me:)
Hopefully you also have an updated virus protection?

Good Luck!

    Courti? Do you have, Windows 7, FireFox, Mac, Vista?!! If you'll go to google search and type in:

how to have a top toolb

without even finishing your search request, the dropdown box will prompt you with hints of what you may be looking for and get you help.

    DH did uninstall the toolbar, but it is still there, only on the homepage though. It's not on top here or on e-mail page and it isn't on progrmas on the contorl panel. I just want myold tool bar back with the verification button. That was my most important thing on it.

    You could also go and uninstall the toolbar.

    Courti, on your keyboard, hit the PrtScn (means: print screen) key. Mine is located in the top keys - above the Insert, Home, Page Up, Delete, End, and Page Down keys. Then go over to your regular email (not SPmail) and get ready to send an email to me. Now, right click and paste in the body (where you'd normally send me a message) and it should put a picture of the PrtScn that you took. It will show me what you're looking at.

    The only thing in my upper left is the browser window and below that is my Google toolbar. When I go to my e-mail it does show a tool bar now below Google but not like my old tool bar,only has 'Home, TV, connect, account, shop/unpgrade and help' which didn't help any. Still no 'verify' button. but it ony shows up during my e-mail page.

    Courti, try going up to your (upper left) where you'll see File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help.

Click on View. At the top of the list in the drop box, is Toolbar.

Use your arrow to highlight the Toolbar. It should give you a list of *stuff* you can emoticon check off. Make sure your Menu Bar, Navigation Toolbar, and Bookmarks Toolbar are checked off.

Let me know if that works. If not, I may have one other thing for you to try.

    Court, have faith, I'm pretty sure that information is all there - just wish I could help you fix the problem. I'm sure it's an easy fix because I've done that myself with other toolbars - however it doesn't matter, all that matters is I can't help right now emoticon

    I think that most copyright owners won't mind as long as you state clearly its not yours...as a photographer I don't mind if people share my photos as long as I get credit.

CoHP: My goals and see where I stand in the future.

Monday, April 15, 2013

My goal is to reach my 100 lbs and to eat more freggies. I can see myself as I was a few years ago, slim legs, slighty toned arms and butt, and somewhat toned abs. I know it won't be perfect, but smaller than what I am now.

Still Not Getting My E-mail

Monday, April 01, 2013

I went to Start and checked my preference on e-mail, at the bottom a little box is checked saying 'Never e-mail me again'. and this caption:
You are no longer receiving emails from SparkPeople because at one point your email provider reported that yours was not a valid email address.

If you are not receiving emails and you have entered a valid address, click here to reset your email address and we will start sending emails to your address the next day.

Check the box next to an email title to opt-in, uncheck to opt-out. Make sure to hit "Save & Submit" at the bottom of the page after making changes. If you are not receiving emails you can visit our email troubleshooting guide.

I had Sparkpeople verified on my e-mail. I'll go back through the trouble shooting. someone gave me a site and now I can't find it for site and tech.

I need to get in touch with my provider, but how do I do that? I clicked the 'verify' on my Xfinity tool bar, but the box is still being checked.

I checked my e-mail preference and my e-mail I use for SP is there.

I go to my SP mail and check it every now and then to see if I get any mail, since I won't be getting alerts on my e-mail. I'll check my teams too for postings.
Very frustrating.

P.S. I went back in and unchecked the box ....again, then clicked some boxes to subscribe to some daily mail, so far nothing, maybe tomorrow.

    When this happened to me I had to re-do it several times before it 'took'! So my suggestion is to try again!! (And again if necessary!)

    I know I had issues until I set up a separate Gmail account for Spark. Rarely do I get dropped off the threads now.

    Courti - I'm so sorry you are still having problems. Have you checked your provider setting to make sure the notifications aren't being sent to the SPAM box? Sometimes yahoo sends things to the spam box that I want to read.

Good luck!

    I'm having problems too, Courti. I think all you have to do is uncheck that [Never Email Me Again] box and click the other link on top to verify your email. It's not your provider's fault--it's all Spark. I checked with my provider once and they said they had never blocked anything. I don't know why Spark continually does this.

    Your provider is the one that you pay for the internet. Contact them and ask them why you can't get any email.

Not Getting Mail

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Found out why I'm not getting mail. I went to Start, and checked under 'E-mail' this was noted:

You are no longer receiving emails from SparkPeople because at one point your email provider reported that yours was not a valid email address.

If you are not receiving emails and you have entered a valid address, click here to reset your email address and we will start sending emails to your address the next day.

Wished I'd noticed this yesterday. so, guess I'll start getting mail tomorrow

    I struggle with this often! If your ISP kicks your email back as spam, or there are issues with them receiving SparkPeople mail for any reason this can happen.

The spot you indicated is one of a few that need to be checked.

Scroll down a bit further on the email tab from your preferences and there is a little tine checkbox that says "never email me again" - uncheck that.

On the first page of your preferences scroll down again, the "allow notifications" needs to be checked

    Hey Courti, I stopped getting my Spark emails and all my BLC notifications yesterday. It's driving me crazy not to know when my team posts or emails me! I've checked that all the correct email preferences are checked. I'm getting the Daily Spark, and Daily Spark recipe but no chat thread or email or goodie notifications.

After reading your blog I re-entered my email address and saved it, hope that does the trick! Let me know if you start receiving them again.
