    IE 11 Crashes every time it opens

    Thanks for the reply. There are a couple of things in that article that I haven't tried. But, what do you make of the fact IE works fine if I Run as Administrator? I don't know what that is telling me.

    4/21/2015 Optional Updates

    Has anyone looked up every update to see what it does? I have 20 updates and in many cases, "If it's not broke, don't fix it." I just don't want to create problems I don't have.

    How do I remove Windows Edition from desktop

    This is what I learned...hopefully it's not too confusing, even though I'm not sure I understand it yet. This computer I'm posting about, I just got it new on Friday. When it started up it went through screens resembling Windows installation. Well, I thought it registered and activated the OS...

    Windows 1.0 Is Nearly Identical to Windows 8 – Photo

    I saw that article on Softpedia and got a hoot out of it. I never ran Windows 1.0, got into the game on Windows 2.0 but still seems to be a step backwards considering all the smart people we have in this world. Greg

    Hey I'll take a wait and see approach. MS said they were bring back the Start Button in 8.1 and we all got excited just to be disappointed. What I would like to see that is not on the list is to bring back Aero. I never understood why they thought that one OS would be fine for all devices. I...

    Windows 8.1 Full Features List

    Well if the Start Button is just a short cut to the Start Menu then that doesn't clarify as a Start Button at all. Why don't they just put the short cut on the desktop. That seems kind a worthless to me. Guess I'll keep my 3rd party app and hope they find a way to get around MS short cut...

    More than half of Windows 8 users just treat it like Win 7

    Like Frank Sinatra sang the song "My Way", that's how I'm using Windows 8 to look like Windows 7. I admit I'm using one of those addons to give me my Start Button back but other than that, I too like the quick boot up of Windows 8. Even though I've been I Windows user since 1989, yeah I'm an...

    Microsoft wins, even if the PC loses

    Well, I love my desktop so MS got to hang around for that. If MS is dead in 4 years, so is the PC hardware companies and all their profits.

    Windows 6.3 build 9319 spotted in the wild

    So I've read the rumors on Windows Blue but the statement I don't understand is statement regarding the kernel. So what does that mean to the novice? Is it performance related or stability? Or does it mean something completely different? Thanks, Greg
