I got fed up with RealPlayer and Google Chrome and have removed them in favor of sticking with other programs. I have vacillated between Internet Explorer and Firefox and am currently running both. The latest niggle that has crept in to Internet Explorer is that when signing in to this forum using the boxes at the top of the page, I log in and the site thanks me for logging in but does not log me in. It might if I ask it to "remember me". At this point, I usually switch back to Firefox. The problem I had with downloading attachments from this forum using Firefox has now been resolved with either an update or reloading Firefox.
Everything else seems to be OK at the moment, until the next update comes along to spoil it.
