Sir Alexander: for some reason, everytime I get to the bottom of one of your posts Internet explorer says it has perfomed an illegal operation and shuts down. I experimented with your posts on many different threads and determined that it must be something in your signature. Would mind changing it please? Thank you.

Everyone Else: Any idea why this happens?

It's probably all the US-ASCII characters in his sig/location.

You know. I DO see little boxes that look like [] in his signature. So while I cannot see the characters, at least my computer can handle them. Perhaps the problem lies in his location rather than the signature.

I believe I have changed my location...see if that makes a difference. I've never had problems using IE with my sig, though.

Nope. I can get as far as seeing "it can't be hid." along with it's little boxes. When I try scroll lower IE freezes.

I am using an old version because my computer is stupid and has some of the wierdest quirks ever. Including the inabilty to install the updates of IE. If it wouldn't be too much trouble could you just change the hearts? And while I'm at it I might as well make another attempt to update.

Yes, the only way I could post in this tread after Sir Alexander had posted was by using netscape. I would just switch to Netscape entirely, but I am too entrenched in using IE, and the MMORPG I play, as well as other things, don't function well on Netscape.

Firefox? Firefox is good. Only you have to keep IE if you ever want to visit a microsoft-made website or play AoE online again. Dam' monopoly.

No, get Firefox. It's less bloaty anyway, and just as functional.

I would agree with this. I'm using it right now, with no problems at all. Excellent browser.

Hey, nice kill, RC.

...what doesn't have tabbed browsing?

EDIT: While we're on this subject, which browsers do you all recommend? I use Firebird, but it's got problems with downloading, so I also use Camino and, occasionally, Mozilla itself... which browser is best, do you think?

Mozilla kills my computer when it starts up and shuts down. I don't use Firefox too much since it looks too...simple. IE is good only with a pop-up blocker but it also gets a bunch of viruses with it's advanceness and such, so it's also good to use a proxy server with it. I use my browsers in a combination sometimes so I can be logged into both or all three of my SpidWeb account, but out of those three, I like Mozilla the most. Heck, it actually displays my siggy characters pretty darn well.

"...what doesn't have tabbed browsing?"

My leg seems to be missing it, but maybe it's just me. :D

1. I highly doubt you get spyware with IE. You're probably getting spyware, which is far, far different (although similarly aggrivating), and can easily be prevented by tweaking IE's security settings to prompt about ActiveX controls.

2. I'd be surprised if proxy servering actually prevented viruses.

3. Whatever/wherever your hearts are supposed to be, I see squares. Just squares.

4. I'm not going to deny it: I hate Firefox/Mozilla/anything using the same rendering engine. It just feels horrible.

You mean viruses with IE, don't you (for the first sentence)? I actually get both, and the viruses/trojans are usually executed in my Temporary Internet Files Folder and they're either somthing like index.htm or something like that. I know it's IE because it's IE's directory for keeping the TempInternet Files and it always happens while I'm running IE. Fortunately, I have a virus scanner so it doesn't bug me that much...and yes, mostly all my ActiveX features plus Java are disabled, Javascript is still enabled.

2. I'd be surprised if proxy servering actually prevented viruses.


I heard they did, but I guess they might not. But I do know one thing and that is they mask your real IP address pretty well. ;)

3. Whatever/wherever your hearts are supposed to be, I see squares. Just squares.


For some reason, those hearts killed older versions of IE, so I had to take them off. No more hearts...*sob*

I see question marks in all lines but the second to last, in which I see something this: § (option 6). That's for all browsers.

EDIT: nothing important.
