    Well you have IE11, I just talked to Brink, he has 8. He tells me IE11 was never made available for W8, but was for 7 and 8.1

    That is just dumb on Microsoft`s part

    I have 8.1 also ( not installed right now ) this is purely research on 8, I`m giving it another chance. When I first installed it years ago I hated it and put it back in the drawer. I installed it on this Gateway yesterday and I`m finding everything so much easier now

    But it will never replace 7 not for me anyway

    And although the videos are playing ok, I still see a quick message at the top of the player telling me I must install Flash Player in order to watch the videos, even though I`m told it`s already in IE10 when I go to Adobe. And when I run the test, it works fine.
