    Same thing with me..............all gone for about a week or so. On explorer................its gone. (most used)
    On Google chrome.......................its there.
    On Firefox its there.

    Just wonder why it disapeared on explorer, there are a lot of things that do not work properly on explorer anymore.

    Easy to fix- just don't use Internet Explorer. Shouldn't anyway.

    Would be glad to oblige, Steve, but it stopped happening for me! I'm not sure why, or how. It was happening on both Firefox, and IE8 for me.

    Or hit Print Screen, then open up Paint and paste it in then save. (or you can use Picasa or Irfanview)

    Mine went off on work computer (IE) also. At home it works, but that's on a real computer, a Mac:D, and I use safari.

    Aha! So it's a conspiracy against work computers using IE!

    Except it works fine on my computer at work using IE.....
    There are rules. Knowing those are easy. There are exceptions to the rules. Knowing those are easy. Knowing when to use them is slightly less easy. There are exceptions to the exceptions. Knowing those is a little more tricky, and know when to use those is even more so. Our industry is FULL of all of the above.

    I think the problem is your settings, and/or the version of IE that you are running. Try updating your Explorer first, then tweaking the settings.

    Hit your Start button, navigate to Windows Update then run that. You will then be suggested to update everything you can. Or you just can go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/fx/ and get the latest version of Firefox and use it instead of Internet Explorer.

    Dragon covered the update info for you. If you update that you might not have to tweak any settings. To find out which version of Explorer you are running;

    Open Explorer. Help. About Internet Explorer.

    There the Version will show up. Write it down. You can then follow Dragon's instructions and update Explorer. The Firefox hint is good. I use both browsers.

    It cost me at some time and over $ 100 when I accidentally lost my explorer. I was told just go on Firefox and download it again, but there was no Firefox. Since then I do have it on every computer as well as the Chrome.

    Possible, though I'm originally from Virginia.


    Chris, how on earth did you lose Explorer? I thought that was part of the whole Microsoft lawsuit thing that you couldn't get rid of Explorer...... I've been able to removed all of Explorer except the base program that came with whatever Windows version I was running at the time. That was buried in there no matter what I did. At the very worst, I would have expected that you could have just re-installed it from the Windows disk.
    There are rules. Knowing those are easy. There are exceptions to the rules. Knowing those are easy. Knowing when to use them is slightly less easy. There are exceptions to the exceptions. Knowing those is a little more tricky, and know when to use those is even more so. Our industry is FULL of all of the above.
