Ok, I guess I'll leave the drivers alone for now.
I've removed the java thing from startup again.
In Everest 2.20...
Are you able to navigate to: Computer - Sensor
here's an image of what I am interested in:
I can, but that information simply does not show up for me.
Google search finds that "some" folks are experiencing this at "some" websites.
It is thought to be possibly poor scripting of the website where instructions for what to expect to find as an image on the website is not exactly scripted the way the image actually occurs.
Hmm. But why does it basically 'lock' the browser? Once it happens, it seems to wreck the whole browser. The only way I can get it to stabilise (and actually allow me to view websites...ANY websites...) is to REBOOT. It may very well be just a few websiets that are causing the problem, but once it does happen, it completely destabilizes all my browsers and won't let me do much of anything.
It doesn't display the same error message in Internet Explorer, no. But it does cause it to act bizarrely. Opera too. The screenshots I posted earlier give an idea of what happens.
Ctrl+F5 hasn't helped. Are you saying I should immediately clear the cache and exit Firefox the next time the encoding error shows up?
One reason I'm not yet convinced that it's simply a problem with a few websites (although you could be right of course) is that it had never happened before I installed this DSL connection and did all those updates and installs. I had the same browser. I was visiting a lot of the same sites in my previous place of residence and it wasn't a problem.
What are the chances that it's a conflict between programs? Do I still have too many security programs?
By my count, I've got:
Anti Virus: avast!
Software Firewall: ZoneAlarm
Anti spyware/malware: Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyware Blaster, Hijackthis
