    In actual fact I'm not using the browser.  I open the forum with Visual Studio 2010 (10.0.30319.1) via the Help>MSDN Forums.

  • I'm having problems replying in IE. Works okay in Chrome though.

    Try a different browser. See if that helps.

    Thanks!

  • Thanks for the answer.  It's easy to access the forums from Visual Studio, but I'll use a browser (either IE or Firefox) in future.

  • I got this warning yesterday from our Network manager

    http://www.nbcnews.com/technology/technolog/us-warns-java-software-security-concerns-escalate-1B7938755

    I’ve been fighting java infections for several months now.  I’ve disabled it on all my personal systems.  Most websites don’t use it and will work without it, but there are some that still do.  Usually you can enable it for that site when you use it, then disable it again.

    -------------------------------

    Unfortunately, my version of Java is 6 and it doesn't have a checkbox to disallow Java. The recommendation is to not use IE at all.

    Yesterday a Java update message popped up, but I was afraid to run it, besides I didn't know if it was supposed to upgrade to version 7 or do some damage to my computer.
