    Hi vivi,
    Sorry you are having issue' least for me, how I got my original issue corrected was I guess you might say by accident. I was doing a 'live' chat session with a microsoft customer service rep. from this site:
    Microsoft Support
    I was talking about a different issue, and casually mentioned my IE 11/Gmail issue to the c.s. rep., I informed him of the thing's I'd tried myself to fix the issue, but didn't. He asked me if I minded that he diagnosed my computer remotely. He assured me that I would be safe, and that he could be 'TRUSTED' in doing so. He then sent me a 'link' that he instructed me to click on, so I would give approval of him working remotely..of course I agreed. I saw him looking around at various area's...all I know is the end result was my issue got FIXED !!

    Hi David
    Thank you for the link. Will use it straight after this reply. This has been driving me up a wall.

    I would just like to share the following with you just in case it helps others:
    About an hour ago I was tweeting with @MicrosoftHelps and sending them some screen shots. They advised me to disable all add ons on my browser [IE 11] . Which I did. (I did not mind disabling all add ons on IE as I never use IE and never use the Bing to search)

    Then I Un Installed the old instance of Google using Revo Uninstaller [In advanced mode] ran CC Cleaner. Restarted.

    Got back to IE 11, no options. And Bingo was able to d/w and install both chrome and Fire Fox (just in case!).

    Logged in to Google on Chrome. Now here lies a smallish problem- I was still getting a error on chrome! I remembered what @MicrosoftHelps told be about add on s in the first place. So I applied the same logic to Chrome and deleted all extensions and Apps leaving Search and Gmail. Viola ....Seems to be running perfectly for the last 1 hour!

    I wonder if the issue is lies buried in the compatibility of Add Ons/ Extensions in the Google / Mozilla environment with Windows 8.1 ?

    Having said that, I do believe that Microsoft needs to compensate people like us for all the hard work we are doing for them !! Getting answers to their buggy ill thought out OS/ Browser. The problem is multidimensional, for example I bought a new note book 10 days ago and It comes pre installed with Windows 8 / There are no options at point of sale to opt for Windows 7 unless one goes in for a DOS machine and purchase Win 7 separately . I did not know this bit about shipping with Win 8 !!

    Thank you for the reply and link.Will revert with and update.
