My System Specs


actually I would like to suggest turning off adblock and then installing ghostly which will give you allot more control of what you want to see or not see .

My System Specs


All right thx guys ! And yes there are other PCs connected to the same router so i'll try to check the firmware...
And Nyteowl, when you download VLC, Winzip/Winrar, uTorrent, Avast......... do you really check each one, one by one ? I mean come on man ! What are the chances one of these progs won't work ? ;)

Nothing like mass installing software without testing after each install to make sure things are working.
i see what you mean, but unless you're installing kernel-level software (pretty much only graphics drivers), it's fairly difficult to break your system. It's the OS that is the boss; not the apps themselves. What usually happens is one program overrrides functionality from another program. that causes a 'human-panic' in the user and then they buy a new computer....

in reality, what happened was that the user clicked 'set as my default browser' on two different browsers, and then the user is confused because IE is not the default browser anymore.

that is hardly a catastrophic error as a result of too much conflicting software
