    Thanks for the update. While firefox is having trouble and IE 8 has gone completely mental on my machine I have been left to join the dark side. I am left with Safari, I know, I'm sorry guys but what can one do when nothing else works.

    hi !

    "no sorry don't like it thanks though"

    10 beta ?

    take a look at the latest official (stable) version 9.64 then,
    i don´t have it installed, my latest version is 9.62,
    but i suspect it looks the same as 9.64, and 9.62 doesn´t look like 10 beta...

    @JR, just a thought my friend is it your browsers or can it be a sign of other problems? I am sure that you will have checked, but it might be worth doing a full scan of everything

    Hi seti and Andy,

    I have run all possible scans and all have back back clean, I also uninstalled IE 8 update to revert back to IE7. IE7 was working normally so I re-downloaded and instaled IE 8. My problems started up again. What is happening is when I visit sites like deviant-ART, Gamespot and a few other daily reads it takes forever and I mean forever to load the page. I have just timed deviant-Art and it took 1min and 43secs to load and even then not all the pictures loaded. I have compared this with other browsers and they all load nice and quick. Problem number 2 is that IE8 seems to keep forgetting my passwords and logins. I have tried everything IE8 is still a clean install with no tweaks enabled and no add-ons. Any Ideas people.
