Installation troubleshooting

I use Norton Internet Security, Zone Alarm, or similar firewall/proxy software and am having trouble downloading Smiley Central. Why?

The most common problem when downloading or installing Smiley Central occurs when running such software. If you are running one of these types of products, try temporarily disabling it, then go back to try the download process again. You can reactivate your firewall/proxy software once the download and installation of the toolbar and Smiley Central is complete.

When I try to install, I'm told "It appears you already have Smiley Central."

Our system indicates that Smiley Central is already installed on your computer. If you have not done so already, please try restarting your computer. If you still do not see Smiley Central on your Web browser please try downloading again.

I no longer see the toolbar/Smiley Central button after I upgrade to the latest version

.In order to verify that your browser is set to allow the toolbar to be displayed, please try the following:
  1. At the top of Internet Explorer, click on the "Tools" menu
  2. Select "Internet Options"
  3. On the resulting window, click the "Advanced" tab (in the upper-right corner)
  4. Under "Browsing", check to see if there is a check mark in the box next to "Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart)." If there is no check in this box, please click on it to check it, then close and re-open your IE browser. My Web Search (or My Total Search) should now be an option under "View -> Toolbars".

I am getting Error code 69031 or 38670.

You may have received this error due to insufficient hard drive space or a fragmented hard drive. You may wish to run scan disk on your hard drive to free up unallocated space and repair any disk errors.

After doing this, please try installing Smiley Central again.
