Hi Red - I used to swear by Internet Explorer until a year ago (just before we moved to France). A number of things went wrong. When my computer was automatically installing Microsoft updates I then had difficulty accessing the internet using Explorer. Co-incidentally, my hotmail e-mail account was corrupted and I also understand that something very strange was happening from my E-bay account. I sound vague because as soon as my sister in law told me about the problems she had e-mailing me and someone else re E-Bay I have never been back to either my hotmail or E-bay accounts. Fortunately I had just about emptied my Paypal account and I didn't owe anything........

We moved to France, I set up gmail and started using Mozilla Firefox instead of Explorer......so far so good.................in other words, try Firefox instead of Explorer and see how you get on would be my (limited) advice.

Internet Explorer is not that safe, I've been told, so installing another browser is a good idea.

Also, Red, what version of Windows are you using? If you use Windows XP, it's time to switch to a later version, for example Windows 7, as Microsoft does no longer support XP and does not give updates to keep the system safe, so it more sensitive to hackers, virusses, etc. Hope all this makes sense, as I am not an expert on the subject.
