I'm having a hell of a time with this site and Windows 7.  New tabs open while I'm typing, my text disappears, all kinds of things happen when I hit a key meaning to type a letter.  What's the story?

I have XP and explorer8, it still gives me trouble, maybe because I still have dailup, I just can't see spending the extra for dsl and broadband isn't available here.

If you are typing a long rant, do it in a word processing program and then copy and paste it here, it'll save you a bunch of headaches.

no Microsoft operating system is the best, some might be a little better than others.

XP was a general disaster, 2007 is considerably better.  Bill Gates really wasn't a good thief, when he literally and legally stole the windows system from Apple.

Vista has worked OK for me so far. Much better than windows ME that I had before. Every time I buy a product from them I seem to get the ones with a bad reputation. It gets old.....RD

I have vista and have no problems. As long as Nothing gives me problems I think I will keep what I have.

I use FoxFire (whatever the current version is now) and it works just fine with whatever the IE program did.

I still keep IE installed for whatever reason may come up that I may have need of it.

I am running windows 7 and google chrome. Chrome works
better with 7 than IE does. I also use foxfire and IE. Of
the three I think IE has the most problems.

Well I'm sick of it.  I'm changing to Foxfire, and if that doesn't work, I'm giving up on computers and this dad-blamed innernet.

Mule,

It's a good thing I don't have a hammer near my computer. I would have a whole bunch of little computer peices.

Hang in there, If I can get mine to work, anyone can.

Well, Foxfire solved the typing problem, but I can't log in using Foxfire.  This stinks.
