    I'm finally trying to use my new laptop (though I Hate it!). I keep getting advertising pop-ups on this site. I've never had that before. How can I shut them off for good? Also, I find certain words underlined in blue. What for?

    What browser are you using? For IE on windows 8 I found this site from Microsoft.

    For google chrome there is a free extension called 'adblock' and for Firefox type in a search for Firefox extensions and find an add blocker for that browser.

    When I post using my iPad I can't see any of the features when I click "Go Advanced." Does anyone else have this issue?

    I am so happy! DH and I were going out for lunch to a nearby restaurant that was featured on Restaurant Impossible and stopped at Best Buy to tell Customer Service that we were very unhappy with Windows 8 and we found on Best Buy internet store that we could get my laptop with the 17 in. screen (the 15 in. was too small) and in Windows 7 and his new desktop tower in Windows 7 online for about the same as we paid for our new, much hated, systems. They said we could return the Windows 8 systems within 15 days and TODAY was day 15! Yippie! We went home and packed up my laptop and his desktop and took them back for full credit! We will order the new systems online and get Windows 7 and live happily ever... well, for a few years.

    Good for you Punkin. I had a guy come in and set my windows 8 up, to look just like windows 7. When my DIL came in, she even said oh lucky, you still have windows 7. We got rid of the damn things I hate on W8.Some things I enjoy though.

    Yes, the smilies flash very briefly and then they disappear. I can't access any of the features on the advanced menu. I wanted the ipad so badly and then found out many videos and cams use flash, making it useless in those instances. I guess my laptop won't become obsolete just yet, lol.

    Does anyone know why the ability to attach photos is grayed out & not available? Am I being punished or is it the same for everyone?

    You're certainly not being punished. I don't see anything different on your account...is anyone else having issues with attaching pics?
