IE7 problem

by jtalarico / November 24, 2006 3:03 AM PST

After installing IE7: On websites most of the time I have to click View then Source in order to go to the next page or next item. A Notepad box flashes briefly & then I can continue. Why? How to avoid?

That makes no sense, Happy

I'm not disputing what you say, but it's just strange that attempting to view a web page code then allows you to click links in a page to go to the next page.

Unless anyone else here has ideas, I would suggest your install of IE7 didn't go right. I would revert back to IE6, (Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs to uninstall IE7 returns you to IE6), then make sure your OS is squeaky clean of parasites, trojans etc, then try again.

That's all I can suggest at the moment.

I would first download and install another browser like Firefox, in case IE6 is broken as well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
