Computer help needed

Postby CJ,s 67 F100 » Wed May 03, 2006 8:08 am

I hope its ok to post this here as no other forum seemed to be the correct.
I down loaded the Microsoft Windows XP auto upgrade last night and this morning when I checked my mail when ever I change sites like mail to here to ebay I only have 1 site open at the bottom at a time. Yesterday I could open my mail then answer a mail from here and minimize it and it would stay open and so would my mail or go from my mail to ebay and it would stay open but not today and all I did was down load that upgrade for windows XP. I can only have one window open at a time now at the bottom. Any thoughts? Thanks Charles

I also recently started using firefox, and the tabbed browsing is nice. It's also less vulnerable to spyware/viruses/etc than IE, the numbers were something like (can't remember exactly) 76 vulnerabilities in IE and 9 with firefox.

JD, I have run the cascading per the directions and its still not working so I have a call into a friend (computer genius) and when he calls back I,ll get back to work on it. Thanks for the help.

Heep70, Keep that sledge handy I may still need it for this confuser

Mytmatt and JD, I,m going to ask him about this Fire Fox while I,m talking to him. Thanks every one. Charles

If I,m not on much till this is resolved its from losing my mind logging on every time I change screens or pages lol
