Re: Laptop problem

I think a lot of the problem was the very very slow broadband. It is not very good where I live. I am told by the engineers there is a lot of 'rain' around here.

I use both Chome & Firefox. Chrome for general browsing & for things I like to do on the move. I sign into Chrome both on my phone and PC so the links and history is linked.

Firefox for battlelog(battlefield 4) because its not supported in chrome anymore & anything that requires a bit more security/privacy

GOOGLE for search engine. Back in the day when they first surfaced, they changed the search engine for ever. No other came close.

UBLOCK ORIGIN... an extension that works on both chome and firefox.... A MUST!

Could he have said "gain" rather than "rain"?

Re: Laptop problem

IE gets a bit over zealous when scripts are running in pages.

Open Internet Explorer and press ok to all script error messages if there are any.
1.Go to the Tools Menu and click Internet Options.
2.Click on the Advanced tab at the top of the Internet Options window.
3.Under Settings, scroll down to the Browsing section andcheck the 3rd (Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)) and4th (Disable script debugging (other)) items, and uncheck the 5th item ("Display a notification about every script error").

Thanks Rob.
I have had the need to resort to using IE on an odd occasion, but I don't much like it anymore......recently I needed to use a program for editing patterns for my cardmaking(Canvas)...it is unsupported by firefox so i think that I might need to use Chrome for periodic use.

Yes, it updates automatically.....but the program (called Canvas)that I want to use is not supported by Firefox......it is a Brother editing program.....it allows me to edit and download shapes for my cutting machine.
I can edit in the machine, but the screen is tiny so it is not easy to do.
I won't use IE to access the program.....I will probably use Chrome.
I am not fully up to speed with this machine yet, so it is something that is firmly in the future.

I have a Brother Scan'n' Cut machine.....but I am still getting used to it.
Yes, it can be like that in our house too.....projects galore on the go...But they tend just to be in our back bedroom.

Re: Laptop problem

Just had a look at the 'surecutsalot'.....not sure that this would be compatible with my machine.....besides the 'canvas' program is free. You have to get an account, but once you have, there are loads of projects to look at and you can edit shapes and fonts that are in the machine.....make the bigger, or smaller and access new shapes.
I still use my cutting dies as these emboss the cut too...making it look less flat.

My son put Windows10 on it a while back and I have to say I have not liked it.
I've experienced that too when I upgraded to Windows 10. I had to bring to the repair coz it crashed several times. The technician told me to just use windows 8.1. Windows 10 has so many unfixed issues yet. I have another laptop with windows 10 as default OS and also experiencing the same thing.
