    Getting ready to ...

    Is not on all sites, just 99% of them. And I am not kidding!

    Takes forever to access, and then screen immediately goes blank. Naturally, I looked up how to get rid of it, tried a few, and screwed up all kinds of things! Can't believe I actually got in here.

    Two questions ...
    (1) What made this happen?
    (2) How do I get rid of it?

    Please advise before I start tearing my hair out!

    Thanks ~ ABC

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Did, and some sites, not all, came back without dreaded "In Private" garbage.

    Am still going through my online-shopping ones ... must keep my priorities straight, afterall!

    Am pooped out with all this computering. Must save my poor little addled brain for later on when I attempt to get into the CU Trivia Tourney stuff ... that I so foolishly signed up for yesterday! :eek:

    Thanks Rock, you are a sweetheart for being there.

    As for me and my ability to tame this machine ... the jury is still out!

    Ok, had 2 more trys at delving into the bowels of this machine, including changing "restore point" twice as well.

    Got a sign saying
    System Restore did not complete successfully ... >snip< unspecified error occurred etc.etc.
    Will have to take the beastly thing into the shop ... and at this point, don't care how long it takes to come back. I need a break!!!

    Gotta run. Several men in white coats are at the door, and am ready to go! *most-happy-smile!*

    Thanks again! ~ ABC

    if you bring it over tomorrow I'm still snowed in and i can get to it, I will probably be back to work Wednesday. Make sure you close the gate so the horse doesn't get out when you get here.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    Windows Vista ... Browser IE 9, I think.

    Not sure, brain is all fuzzed out and on "scramble" at the moment!

    Is definitely "Windows Vista" however.
