    Coincidence? This is the third time in 4 months that I had my computer shut down. Usually after seeing a PM and trying to get to private messages. Then my computer will not budge. Closing a browser is impossible. Unplug machine and poof: Death.

    There are two alert windows open. One is behind the other. The one behind is an alert about a PM.

    After a few death screens, I decided to use Safari once in a while as it keeps track of all cookies and more, and I am familiar on how to peek inside what the browser was doing last.

    I get those all the time since i installed an Adobe 10 upgrade. I may have to turn in this Tandy TRS-80 computer, maybe for a Commodore 64

    Someone told me the other day that if I'd just get a Mac, all my problems would go away and my wildest dreams would come true.

    If it's san ADOBE issue, I'll scream!!!! The only software that ever crashed my old mac was a download from Symantec -- a security thing. go figure.

    The other thing that caused me a severe headache was an issue with ADOBE and a Font Cache. :evil:

    Then there is the coincidence of recently being at USMB late at night. Mild paranoia easily sets in when hanging around the truly paranoid on the internet(s)

    I tried using that and it drove me nuts. lol

    I hate windows. But forms and scripts have injection issues. sigh

    I am now learning how to trouble shoot a Windows PC and learn about the BSOD and more. Not fun. I miss my old mac, but I hear even they are now having issues.

    Don't blame Microsoft because you are computer ignorant.
