I have been having NOTHING but trouble with slow slow slow Brainking. My browser would always say "waiting for Brainking" so naturally I thought it was just here. But, I started to notice that other sites were running as slowly. So, I used my guest account on this computer thinking it was all the stuff that loads on my main account. Nope, still ran badly. Sooooo I switched to Google Chrome just for fun. And guess what? Everything is faster than lightening. So I guess it is in my FireFox browser. What could cause it to run so slowly? Is it that script checker??? It's way too annoying. I can go from page to page now at the click and load time is in a blink. ;)
Snoopy: You say you have pop-ups disabled, but check if someone didn't define exceptions. It's under options->contents, you have the checkbox for "block pop-ups", and on the same line a button "exceptions", where you can define which sites are allowed pop-ups. I remember there was a malware that filled that "exceptions" part with loads of sites. So even if you get rid of the malware, the exceptions are still there.
(V): IM USING FIREFOX NOW FOR ONCE IT HASNT CLOSED DOWN ON ME BUT IVE HAD 6 DIFFERENT POP UP PAGES IN THE 5 MINS IVE HAD IT RUNNING IM DOING A FULL SCAN OVERNIGHT BUT I STILL RECKON ITS TO DO WITH FIREFOX ITSELF
I SHOULD ADD THAT POP UP BLOCKER IS ENABLED ON FIREFOX
There is no camera, no card-reader and not even an USB-Slot in it!
Right now, its just an object of prestige, an adults toy.
As a professional creative, i am using apple products for over 25 years now,
and i agree in the superb quality of the hardware, and the better stability of the operating system.
But as far as the IPad is concerned, i can tell you all to wait at least one year from now on if you think to buy it.
It wont push any laptop of the cliff (neither apple nor non-apple laptops) as long as the multimedia-abilities are that poor.
The apple leaders dont put a memory-card-reader inside to avoid storage-extension. It comes with a poor amount of GB though. If you, for example, simply want to import the pics of your non-apple digital camera, you need to buy additional adaptors cause there is no serial USB slot. You cant use videoconferencing cause there is no camera..... .
The touch-screen-technique is innovative and enjoyable. Not more.
puupia: I mentioned the laptop comparison because I've read (watched) it being done by a few computer reviews the last few days.The conclusion seems to be that the iPad won't leave the laptop in its dust, for many of the reasons you point out, but it does have the potential to take a decent bite out of its market share.
Jim Dandy: No no, its not all hype. All Apple products i have used have been excellent in their area. I'm sure iPad will be an very good product. And Steve is the god of marketing. Surely it will be appealing to some people, even outside of Steve-cult.
But it is not really going to compete with laptops, thus it will not "push them off the cliff". It does not have enough features to do that. Who is really going to need a thingy that will have less features than a decent laptop and it'll be much harder to bring along with you than a mobile phone?
Although uninstalling Internet Explorer from Windows is possible, you are strongly advised not to remove IE, for a number of reasons :
1. Many web sites are programmed to work only with Internet Explorer. For example, webmasters authoring a site may have not tested with other web browsers. The majority of websites on the Internet should work with Mozilla browsers, but there are some sites that appear distorted or inaccessible unless IE is used as a browser. 2. Windows Update requires Internet Explorer. As an alternative, you may be able to manually download security updates, but it will require more monitoring and work than letting Windows Update handle this for you. 3. Some applications depend on libraries installed by Internet Explorer. These applications may no longer work or they may behave unexpectedly if IE is removed. 4. Some anti-virus products require IE for updates. Live updates or automatic DAT updates used by both Norton and McAfee are built on Internet Explorer's foundation. You may be able to manually update your virus signature files but it could require more work. 5. Both removing and restoring IE is risky and difficult. IE is complex with extensive hooks built into Windows, for efficiency and functionality. Thus unplugging it from your system may impact Internet connectivity, Windows functionality, and break functionality in Microsoft Office and non-MS products. 6. IE is more than a browser, it is the foundation for Internet functionality in Windows.
If you still want to remove IE despite these warnings, there are third-party programs available like LitePC that remove IE but these are most definitely not recommended for novice users. Instead of uninstalling IE, you should consider the alternatives first, such as making IE more secure, or hiding Internet Explorer.
MadMonkey: Well, more precisely, it was on the page that appears when safe script is updated... :O) My computer is running slow and I know that there are things I've deleted that left leftovers... I was wondering if something like that would help. Thank you for the link, I'll check it out.
Another one of those days i am going to put something from my Monkeys Cyber Cafe Fellowship on here
First, a neat little Firefox Add-on i found.
I love to subscribe to RSS Feeds, in fact they are the main source of this Fellowship. I have tried all different ones, from having them directed to Thunderbird (the awesome e-mail client made by Mozilla) to having them in a scrolling Task-bar.....both of which had good and bad point
Now i have found Feedly, a GREAT Firefox Add-on. Basically it lets you design your own magazine style start page, and you can subscribe to whatever feeds you wish. It takes about 15 minutes to delete the default ones it comes with (if you wish to of course) and set your own up, and also puts a little icon beside the home page one in the Navigation Bar, just click that, it opens a separate Tab, with all your subscribed Feed items in. I have set my default to latest News. There is also a little +f at the end of the Address window should you come across a site you like and wish to add that to your Subscriptions. All in all i think it is GREAT
AND Secondly while i am on Add-ons........
This is still Experimental, BUT if your like me and like playing lol
MadMonkey: Had a slight problem, when I went to click on the download part to actually delete the game, I had to accept the terms & conditions ( for some dumb reason). When my brother used my comp, the personal security from the site popped up & he or I couldn't even get back on-line except to check my mail. Had to re-install everything all over again

MadMonkey:I am using Avira AntiVir personal (the free version) for a couple of years. And i am happy with it. The update-server didnt work well for 2 or three months, but thats time ago and now everything works well.
I have used both Avast and AVG in the past and as puupia and wetware say, they are both very good. I have just noticed on the FileHippo download site that AntiVir Personal has toped there Anti Virus download charts. I was wondering what it is like ?
