Hi, can anyone help me out??

When I try to close a page on my pc while on and offline by means of the "red Cross" top right of page, it won't close and I have to use the alt-ctrl to get rid of it.

Any ideas why this is happening and any suggestion how to sort this problem out?

Many thanks in advance, misterc :whistling:

Alt+F4 closes anything.

Aside from that, when you talking about closing pages, do you mean in a web browser, and if so, which version of which browser?

I've got no experience with IE7, as I refuse to "update" to an inferior browser, so I'm going to leave this for another tech to take a look at.

Where are you at with your issue?

Have you uninstalled IE7?
Reinstalled?
Any difference?

Did you make sure your "system" was in apple pie order, prior to the first install?
Were all running progs shut off prior to install?

etc.

I like the prog "StopIt" from http://www.McDev.com It shuts stuff down instantly! From there, you can backtrack to see what's up.

I'd also do a complete defrag and clean-up, prior to an install.

Get back to "us."
