SO WHAT'S THE SOLUTION? :whistling:

Net8 has become increasingly unstable since I loaded it a few weeks ago. As I am working on my blog, and I happen to touch a certain, indefinable spot on the screen, it completely shuts down with no warning, as if the power had been cut off and all disappears. The spot seems to be at the elevator bar along the field in which you enter you discussion...

Now this behaviour has "graduated" to the point, where I can'd get to my blog page at all. I go to the home page, but when I try to log in, ...it goes poof! and its gone ...no warnings at all.

I have no concerns about malware, or viri, I live in a fortress [15yrs experience], so please do not suggest that. I have most every utility available, as I am a beta tester at times, so lots of tools are cached until needed. A list of maintenance actions are used daily and sometimes more than once. I've gone into every corner where I feel some conflicts might arise.

I run both Netscape 7 and Netscape 8 at the sime time. It has not given me any problem. Part of the ease of using Netscape is that you can run more than one instance of the browser at once, which I need to do.

I have complained to Netscape about this but no one has returned a solution...or they do not want to... :blink:

I am sure that it must either be a weakness in the transition commands from one URL to another, i.e. the home page and the log in link page...

I have no trouble with IExplorer, my arch enemy, until now... It can go through the whole process.

I should also add that Net7 will no longer allow me to upload images to my blog space, that is why I must use Net8 [which will default to FireFox or IExplorer as needed], but now that IEx allows for this, it is going to displace Net8 and my alternate browser. That's not what I want to do.

I DON'T WANT TO USE ANY MS PRODUCTS unless forced to do so. :help:

If you dislike MS so much, why not get a Mac or do a linux install instead of Windows? It is easier for me to use IE than to jump through the extra hoops to run Netscape. Got a link to your blog?

Bite your tongue...IExplorer indeed...ptui! That being said, and now that I've made a fool of myself, I may have to...and horror of horrors, I just loaded SP2 to see if that makes a difference...will get back to you later on both those issues.

I now am having some Windows Media Player v9 problems...scripting errors, and advpack.dll issues...broadcasts are shut off in mid feed, and the wee popup states in no unceratain terms CLOSED!

Why MS needs advpack.dll is beyond me, in its present format anyway... no one can seem to decide if it is malware of part of MS's malware side of the coin...go figure...but it has to be there in system32 land :whistling:

Linux...mmmmm, once was free, now there's a fee :blink: MAC...not into graphic stuff...my son has one upstairs...Graphic Designer...and all that...we constantly are at odds :help:

Just stubborn... will solve it eventually... :)
