I had recently downloaded Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 on my computer.
You know, when you get updates and you think you have to do it.
Well that is what was causing all our recent problems, the program is crap!
And that was confirmed by my computer tech son, he told me the same thing.
So while he was here for a bit today he uninstalled it for me and reinstalled version 7.
Just a warning don't install 8 it is a pain in the you know what and more!!
