Hey Sis, This thread is old but relevant to the problem I have just experienced after downloading the newer Windows Internet Explorer 8, and have a thread on it also on this forum. My older Windows Internet Explorer 7 didn't have this problem.
I have to now use a different Internet Explorer named Google Chrome; also a free down load to be able to type right on this forum. Presently I am retaining Comcast to access my emails, but switch to Google to reply here. Maybe I'll figure a better way in the future.
