Asked By Sally on 15-Sep-10 08:45 AM
The links are not working, I have tried copy and paste but this doesnt work, there is no message diplaying to enable or disable anything. I am getting very frustrated as Sites that i know and trust and have been using for years and cant just click what want and get to it.  I have exhausted my capablality to solve this problem.  I have windows xp and just recently updated to internet exploerer 8, which i am regretting.  At this time I also started up a new hotmail account for my husband and that is doing the same thing.  Please help

My best suggestion for you is to switch to another browser like:

Google Chrome - http://www.google.com/chrome/
Firefox 3 - http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/firefox.html
or Opera - http://www.opera.com/

Sorry to say, but your choice is the worst possible :/

Regards.

Thanks,  after asking for help I went into Mozilla firefox and all working with that!!  Never used it I guess as was just used to internet explorer, finding it a bit slow and hard to operate.  Is internet explorer a bad choice or just 8?  Cheers

Internet Explorer is a bad choice yes. Any of them. As for speed of Firefox you're correct it is kinda slow that's why I've put the Google Chrome on top. It is extremely light and fast. Try it you will like it I'm sure.

Excuse my lack of knowledge, but what do you mean by google chrome on top?  I cant even find my favourites list on here.  i am assuming that I nave never set it up properly.
Sasha Kotlo replied to Sally on 15-Sep-10 09:53 AM
I gave you a list of 3 browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox and Opera for you to choose which one you want. My best recommendation is Google Chrome (that's what I mean on top; on top of the list).

Regards.

hi Sasha, I am still trying to get things sorted here!!  Got a few more questions for you.  When using firefox I want to have 2 user accounts showing on the sign in page for hotmail as I did with IE but it doesnt seem to be working with firefox, have windows live id does that not work with forefox?  And If I am going to use google chrome, it doesnt show the avg toolbar so is this working with this browser?  Cheers
Sasha Kotlo replied to Sally on 16-Sep-10 07:42 AM
The fact it doesn't show 2 live ids anymore has nothing to do with browser itself but rather the fact that it wasn't implemented by windows live team to work properly on the rest of non-IE browsers. As for Google Chrome as far as I know AVG doesn't control it's links but I don't use that option anyways so it doesn't matter for me.
