    BLESS YOU ALL!!!

    It was, in the end, a sort of hybrid fix from what I could tell. I did 2 hard shutdowns in a row (due to corrupted internal memory I didn't reboot within 2 minutes though) and...
  8. Apparently defective Windows 10 installation

    My wife's laptop decided to upgrade to Windows 10 last night. This morning she told me she doesn't know how to do anything because it is all 'different' - I checked, and sure enough - Windows 7 is...

    Well, that's my memory for you; it must have been IE-8, but all I remember is that every doggone website I would go to had something to say about my outdated browser. Frustrating, but if work only...
  13. IE9 worked with Windows XP; not so much with Win7 Pro

    I finally made the upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 (Professional, 64-bit).

    Sigh, good old IE. I wouldn't even be using it if it weren't for work - as usual, they require IE for logging in.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Joe - I'll give it a try and hopefully it will be an...
