Many thanks, many apologies, many problems

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Thank you to all who have sent me goodies, commented on my pictures, etc. for the past few weeks. My apologies to all of you for not promptly acknowledging your thoughtfulness. My poor mother is rolling in her grave at my rudeness! Which leads me to the third topic of this e mail.

Problems galore, starting when I was forced to load IE 8. Problems have only gotten worse over the weeks and I am getting some truly weird ones. For starters, I cannot click on your id picture to respond from my Spark page. Nor can I contact you from your Spark page. The only way I can connect with anybody is through an id picture on a thread. Now, isn't this odd? The same picture only works from a thread! You have no idea how much time I spend looking for people on threads. Even going to my friends on Spark page doesn't work. I keep getting a new screen with a box telling me "user not found". Most of the time I can respond to blogs, but sometimes it refuses to recognize me, even if I sign in again.

I am having a few problems on other sites but nothing like SP. I have tried the tech desk, followed all their suggestions and nothing helps. I am at my wit's end.

    Everything everyone has said is Greek to me. I have an iMac and I love it. When I try to help my friends that have PCs I have a really hard time because they are not as user friendly as the Mac. Sorry our are having so many problems, I know how frustrating it can be.

    I totally agree that IE8 is not a user friendly product. I made the mistake of upgrading for IE7 to IE8. Everything is so much more slow. I don't understand why they keep trying to improve something that isn't broke! I can gain a little speed by cleaning out my temp files and history files, but don't feel I should have to do that on such a frequent basis. Hope it works out for you.

    Jean, IE8 is the worst product MS has ever foisted on its customers. I got so frustrated with it I switched to Mozilla Firefox and things worked better. However, I finally had to format my PC and just start over, reloading everything I wanted on it. Now it's like I have a new computer.

    My IE that I reloaded was IE6 which came with my computer 3 yrs ago. I upgraded that to IE7 but have made sure automated downloads are subject to MY approval and I have banned IE8 from showing up forever!

    I wish you luck.
