For a few seconds perhaps I am the newest addition to this forum. Did anyone say rookie? Well, being 30-something that sounds a lot like a compliment to me.

I just spent yesterday afternoon and this moring following the steps in topic98219. Now I have a fully functional browser once again. Thank you "Grinler / Bleep Bleep!" and bleepingcomputer :thumbsup: .

From time to time I wonder why I hang on to windowsXP when my girlfriend lives a sorrowfree life with her mac OS X... but within a few seconds I remember. Anything seems possible. Especially when problems exeed my league (thankfully that doesn't happen very often) and I then find brilliant advice from clever people on the internet. This is such an occasion - so "hip hip..." for the XP trade off's - still a pretty messy OS but by far my favorite platform to both work and resolve issues.

Welcome to this friendly user community!
Just think of using a Windows operating system as a challenge, and not an "easy way out."
Regards,
John

Thanks jgweed and garmanma. Good to know that users care about rookies - and I'll tell my girlfriend about BC if she ever gets in trouble with her mac. It seems a bit unlikely though - does a code of conduct perhaps exist among producers of malware, spyware and vira, that only Bill Gates-approved platforms are to be targeted?
I envy the ease and the calm of using and working on a mac - but not the restrictions and limitations (not to mention the ridiculos amount of keyboard short cuts that just aren't there).
