I'm not the fellow you are specifically talking about, but I know there are several of us "Computer Geeks" that frequent DiscussCooking.com and would be glad to help..

What kind of troubles are you having?

Thanks Brad,
A friend was getting a Script Error when trying to print itmes from the internet. (Ancestry.com)
I had read quite a few post on SmartComputing.com and wanted a second opinion.
The concisus there was to uninstall and re-install MSIE.
That made me think for a while?? If I remeove IE "How do I get on line to D/L the reinstall".

The process is to D/L the reinstall version to a temp file, then delete the origial version - get the reinstall from the temp file and run it.

However, Her daughter found a clip form Ancestory.com that there were problems in printing and they had a patch to install that would take care of the script error.
Se did it and it seems tobe working O.K. for now.

Thanks for your concern.

Charlie

Glad to hear that it's all fixed.. Usually, before uninstalling IE, I will either download an installer, or, Mozilla's Firefox. From experience, even after Uninstalling IE, it's still there.. You can still browse the internet using Microsoft Explorer..

Either way, glad it is resolved..

good to know that you're a computer helper, candlebc!
I've got a question for you, if that's okay:
I usually am on firefox, and only go to my aol if I need to check emails. On aol, quicktime works fine, but on firefox, I only get the Q with a question mark. I'm assuming firefox blocks it, but don't know how to unblock.
Any ideas?

It's not necessarily that Firefox is "Blocking" it, rather it likely does not have a Quicktime Plugin.

Try downloading it here: Apple - QuickTime - Download
