    hi all, hope someone can help. i have read how to get around the reduced functionality mode using internet explorer. but my computer is stuck with firefox. is there a fix to get out of r.f.m using this browser. i was up all last night reading the posts on this forum, just to let you know i have tried to work something out. it was vista ultimate i was using. i have a key for vista premium, if i cannot get out of the r.f.m in firefox. if there is a way to do that. hope you can help. kind regards. gboy. :confused:

    Once you save the file using FF, you can run it...;)
    I've installed FF, just to test this...:eek:

    hi all, first of all i would like to say a big thank you to, shay_g, juzz & petar. for trying to help. much appreciated. when my computer is in r.f.m in mozilla firefox, that is also in r.f.m. so there is not much i can do in this browser. when i put c:in the address bar. it does not open windows explorer. so i dont know what else to do. has anybody got a ultimate key, i could try. if i could only get out of r.f.m. i could use a premium key i have. i could buy a ultimate key from the software4students site for £60. or has anyone got one to sell. kind regards. gboy. :confused:

    i have an idea!!!
    just select a random link and click save as. Then browse files, then right click a folder and click Explore or go to c:\windows\system32 in the file name write cmd.* and now you will see the cmd.exe file, press on it with the right click, it will open for you a little menu, then chose in the menu "open"
    edit: or maybe try to download a rar file then open it with your winrar proggy and now you can go to c:\windows\system32\ via the winrar explorer
