Here's my problem..

I recently replaced my home computer tower that died with a used one I got from a buddy...all is up and running, and I can browse various sites, etc. The issue is when I go to Google for example, and try and click the arrow in the search engine space, the blinking cursor won't pop in there, allowing me to type what I want to search for...same thing happens in other sites, such as FM or Ebay. I am able to type "Ebay" into my browser, but I'm not able to type anything inside the site I've arrived at. I figure it's got to be within my settings somewhere, but I can't figure it out and I'm running out of curse words to yell at it confused.gifmad.gif

Any ideas?

Thanks Guys.

What are you using for a browser and what version are you using? If you're using internet explorer throw it away and install Mozilla Firefox. Go to www dot getfirefox (Contact Us Please) to get it for free.

This tower is using windows 98...and yes, I was using I-Explorer. Are you saying that the problem is Internet Explorer? I'm not opposed to uploading Firefox, as I've used it before, but I'm wondering if that will resolove the issue? And just for my own curiosity, if it does the trick....why? What's the problem with Explorer?

Thanks..

Windows 98, if that's what you're asking me. If not, sorry I'm not understanding the question better.

You may need a more current version of IE.

IFRon-

In your opinion, what's the best/most efficient way to do this? Can it be uploaded online, or do I need to buy the software?

      hurry up ice!

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
