Re: Windows 8

Well, Windows 7 is only released half a year ago or so. So you must be using a VERY early prototype of Windows 8. I don't think many people outside Microsoft do have that.
So why not contact the Microsoft development team about this issue?

So sorry--VISTA ULTIMATE operating system--IE 8 upgrade

my browser is uopgraded recently to Internet explorer 8 which has been around long enough to have the kinks out--almost two years now

Notes and questions...

1.) There is no compatibility issue between IE8 and Cnet's sites and services, so you won't need to switch to a different browser.

2.) Cnet requires that you accept cookies for, but allowing third-party cookies is not required. Since you're successfully posting here in the forums, it doesn't sound as if that's the source of the issue.

3.) Cnet publishes dozens of newsletters that link to various parts of the site (Forums, Downloads, News, Reviews, etc). Thus, we'll need to know which newsletter you are referring to (both title and date of publication) and, more importantly, the URL of the page to which you are attempting to post a comment/reply.

Tell us about #3 and we'll see what we can do to resolve the issue you're experiencing.

Let us know.
