I would suggest uninstalling FireFox and make sure everything works again.

I have been thinking the same thing. We worked so hard on this, I mean you worked so hard on this that I just want it back to working as it was before. I was going to sites fast and no box telling me they were going to shut down the web page. So, I shall do that and let you know what becomes of it. Thank you.

Well, I took it off and now everything is working as it was. My computer is going faster and when I visit a web page I can do so without having it shut down. Amazing isn't it. I think we shall forget Fire Fox. I am very happy with how well this machine is running and very thankful to you for all the hard work you have done to make it so. I told one of my friends who is having problems to go to your site. She was happy to give it a try for she is so tired of paying and not having her computer work right. I know that you all can help her out. Once more, Thank you...

Yeah the amount of memory is a issue and we could try seeing about getting that up to 1 gig of memory if not more as that would help immensely. Thanks 123Runner :thumbsup:

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

I have no problem ordering this but what am I to do with it after I get it. There is now way that I could put it in my computer. The thought scares me. I would love to have more memory for I do know that this is a problem when I have 2 Card Shops on my computer to make cards for the church. I also have Micro Soft Word put on here for I write short stories. Now as far as Micro Soft Office, I don't ever use it and have often thought of taking it off but was not sure what would happen if I did. I should of thought of the memory when I tried Fox Fire for I had to get rid of Yahoo because of that very thing. It slowed my computer way down and took forever to go to a site. Ok, I am more than willing to get this memory and know I would love more memory but who is going to put it in the computer for me? :)

The memory will not affect the programs you have installed except for making them work faster and you will be able to open more programs at the same time.
Installation of the memory is not that hard and I can supply a link to help install it.
This link HERE will show you how to build a system from the ground up including the installation of the memery.

That was very interesting. My husband just laughed when I told him that I might be able to put in more memory. One time we tried to get the side off the side off the computer to give it a good cleaning for my grandson said we needed to do that. We could not get it off. Brandon came over and did it for us shaking his head and muttering to himself all the while. Now, maybe he could do that for me and I do plan on asking him. For I so agree it would be great. If I was younger, I would love to study computers for they fascinate me. I have so enjoyed watching you as you worked on this machine, it was all so interesting and so neat that you fixed this machine. Thank you for all the time you took for I did take a lot of your time but please do not feel it was wasted, I am so grateful to you.

I never feel like I wasted my time because if you have learned only one thing from me then I am successful.

I am so glad about that and I have learned more than on thing from you. You not only helped with the computer but also showed me that there are those who really do care about others. You are a very good person and I am so glad that I have had the privilege to meet you. Could be maybe down the line I may need your help again. God bless you.

really did not think I would need you so soon. I have this pop up coming up on every page I go to. "Do you want to view only the web page content that was delivered securely? etc. I have no idea where it came from and it just started to appear last night. Tell me this is a simple matter to get rid of, please.
