  1. No response?? Have I been black-listed? Oh well, thanks anyway folks <shakes his head>

  3. Amen to Anna Kournikova!! Anna used to practice here in Florida close to where I live at the Bollettieri Tennis Academy. I knew I should've taken up tennis!!
  4. I'm using firefox 2, and I was checking my email on MSN Live Hotmail and a notification at the top screen said it needed to download "Real Player Browser Record Plugin 1.0" in order to play something (probably and audio ad), and I allowed it to download it. Now I have this plugin that I'm not sure that I need. My question is should I uninstall it? And if so, how? I looked at the unistall button but it was all shaded out. Is there another way to uninstall it? Thanks EDIT: (Real Player Browser Record Plugin 1.0) It's description is "It Detects all recordable content on the browser."
  5. I would say Football is the most popular in the US. Basketball and Baseball are pretty even. Tennis and Soccer is the lowest in popularity, then of course Underwater Basket Weaving comes in dead last.
  6. Does anyone know how to make the underline of a misspelled word in firefox bolder? I can hardly see it, it's so thin. I'd like to make it a different color too.
  7. I know what you mean about Nascar, I'm not a big fan either, however, my brother loves it and watches it every weekend. Is it the race itself, or the drivers and how the race is presented you don't like about it. To me it's just plain boring. It's a redneck haven and I couldn't stand to attend one of those races..lol I'll watch it on TV on occasion, but that's it. I'll take a good football game any day of the week.
  8. My favorite sport is NFL Football, and my favorite team is The Tampa Bay Bucs.
  9. You might be stupid. A moron. An idiot. A fool. A babbling unintelligent chimp with the IQ of a sack of hammers. But if you are a good speller, then people will still think that you're smart. Along with nuclear physicists and brain surgeons, great writers are seen as being among the intellectual giants of the planet. This is partly because proper spelling involves the simultaneous use of memory, intelligence, and intense concentration, and partly because spelling is such a bitch to learn.
  10. Some people were having issues with Opera too. Their spell-checkers wern't acting properly and some pictures on the forum weren't showing up for them. I just installed Firefox and everything is working good so far.
  11. Yeah, it probably is and their making bucks with it..lol No, but seriously, someone else might have had the same idea as you and created one but I already googled it and nothing came up anyway. No big deal really.
  12. I'm sure I'll get a few more before the night is over
  13. Thanks a lot for the help Hazelnut and the links I appreciate it. I went with Firefox and having a good time I'm sure opera is great too, but I wanted to choose just one for now. This is a big difference compared to IE.
  14. Yeah, I think I'm gonna like this. I just changed the theme to Aluminium Kai 2. Looks great! How many different themes can you have?
  15. Thanks for all the replies everyone. I went ahead and downloaded the Firefox I'm using it now, and it's great! I think I'll just wait and get a little more familar with it before I change it up any. I'll probably add a different Theme first. What's the difference between a Theme and a different skin? Are they one in the same?
  16. What version of firefox would you say is the best? I noticed several editions like 2 and the latest version 3. I wouldn't want a google package or anything like that, just the firefox by itself.
  17. Oh OK, I see. Well, maybe I'll google "Kill AOL" and see what I come up with. Thanks
  18. I'm thinking about adding a new browser, problem is, I can't decide which one to get. I've been reading posts about the different browsers like firefox and opera, but there are such mixed opinions about each of them it's hard to decide which one to get. I really don't want to try them ALL out, but would rather choose the right one the first time-out, and be done with it. Besides the security issue with IE, what other reasons do I have to change my browser from IE7 to something else? I'm curious to know what I would have to gain by having for example, Firefox. I've been using IE7 exclusively for approximately 6 years now, but before then I used AOL's browser. What I experienced with AOL's browser was I couldn't save pictures to my PC. There was the notorious red-X instead of the pic, making it clear to me that there was a compatibility issue, or possibly a bug. Then, when I would use internet explorer, the pictures would save correctly. Have any of you ever experienced any problems similar to this with Firefox or any other browser types out their? This will help me make a better decision as to which one to try first. Thanks
  19. It didn't detect an update for my system either, I have WinXP SP2. What day of the month do these updates fall on so I can quit wasting my time checking?
  20. No, I didn't sign up for the AVG forum. It works like this, On my AVG Anti-Spyware program, there's a 'Request Technical Support' link, so when you click on it, it takes you to a private 'Ask Technical Team Question' page, and from their you have to enter your full name and personal registration number/key of the product you purchased so they can recognize who you are. Then you write your message and send it, then they send you the answer to your registered email address.
  21. Oh rats, and I thought I was special with the personal email and all.
  22. Yeah, they're all probably pretty good. I like AVG so I went with them. I also have a paid Anti-Spyware account with them, so, it was easy for me to get a question answered quickly from support. That question & reply I posted earlier was answered within the hour. They're real good about that.
  23. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that you sounded 'disappointed' CeeCee! LOL I just downloaded AVG Rootkit and it didn't find anything either. I'll put it on the back-shelf and check it from time to time. Good little program to have.
  24. I was just referring to AOL's software in general. Too much stuff and junk occupying lot's of space. I didn't like their browser either. Actually, I didn't know you could get online with AOL without some of their software. i.e 'browser. I never experienced any down-time with AOL, so in that respect they've been good.
