    Problems with Windows 8 & Google


    Hi, posting on behalf of my brother in law who bought a new laptop with Windows 8.

    He first told me about a problem he was having trying to get onto the Jet2 site to by airline tickets. A search on Google took you to the site but the moment he started typing in info to try and book anything an error came up. He tired this a few times and this kept happening. He tried to do the same thing on his sons 2 laptops both running windows 7 without problems.

    He brought his laptop over to my house to try and the same thing occurred. I installed Google Chrome and he can get on to the site no problem and fill in forms ok.

    This has happened again tonight on Google with moneysupermarket.com when he tries to obtain a quote on line, as soon as he tries filling in a form he gets an error but is ok using Google chrome.


    Does anyone else have this problem or has heard of it?

    (I asked him to tell me what the error message says but he does not have access just now. I will update post later with what the error messages says)
