Hello, when a standard user on my notebook, HP Pavilion, running (Visa Home Premium) tried to sign up for a facebook account, when trying to fill in the e-mail address section, the @ symbol would not display, it would only give a double quote ("). I thought this might be something to do with User Account Control, so, to test this out I temporarily gave the account administrator privileges, but still no change, this is no big deal, seeing as the user was below the minimum age for facebook sign-up anyway, but I'm just curious as to why this occurs! when I try it from my administrator account I have no problem, the @ symbol displays fine.
Puzzled! :wacko:
