[access-uk] Re: websites cause total system shutdown

what is DCM? I'm displaying my total lack of ignorance on the list just in case it's useful to other people. Be thankful everybody out there!

Is this to do with the new way that screen capturing started to happen?

I should also add to this thread that I am having immense problems with Brian Hargen's iTunes scripts. I've spoken to Brian about this. The problem is because my computer is rendering iTunes software in completely different colours to those that the scripts work with. I've upgraded my video drivers (thank you George Bell by the way) and I've reinstalled but it's still showing up as the wrong colours (black on white instead of some steely silvery colour if I remember correctly).

So I think that there is generally something going on with my machine at a basic level ...

Anyone? Please? It is seriously doing my head in and, yes, a new PC could well be on the cards. I'm not all that keen on buying a new PC before Vista comes out tho so this is just giving me double annoyance pressure.

...Damon

Is it anything to do with dcm? Maybe you need to download some up-to-date
drivers?...I remember reading something about systems running more than one
version of access technology being prone to crashes and sudden reboots, but
a new version of dcm or something was released to remedy the problem.

steve, it does it with all versions of jaws that I have on my PC leading back to 4.5

This is a problem I've only had in the last 9 months.

Since that time I should say that I have also installed ZoomText on my PC.
ZoomText also causes my computer to closedown when run with JAWS. I'm
running Zoomtext version 8.0

I should add that ZoomText is rarely switched on but I guess it's there in
my computer's system even if it's not on.

Thanks for your thoughts.

...Damon

Hi Damon,

How about a new screen reader?  <Smile>.  I reckon that's where your
problem
is.  I don't reckon JAWS is all that stable any more in general.

All the best

Hi there,

Hoping someone can help me with this enfuriating and exasperating
problem.

Some websites make my PC switch itself off and do a restart. This only
happens when JAWS is on. If someone visits the websites when JAWS is
not on, there is no problem at all.

I'll explain it a bit more in a second but has anyone else had this
problem?

It's all to do with certain websites.

Sometimes when I land on a website the computer will do a restart
before even letting me arrow down into any of the page. On other
websites, however, like the 'My eBay' section in eBay, it causes the
computer to restart when I
arrow down to a certain line on the page.

Also: I used to visit UKNova.com with no problem whatsoever until
recently.
Now as soon as I land on the site the computer does a restart.
Interestingly
here though I decided to delete all cookies and I was able to look at the
front page of UKNova without any problems. TO use the service tho, you
need
to sign in. As soon as you sign in, you're directed to a different part of
the site, the website drops a cookie onto the hard disk and bang bang the
computer automatically does a total system restart. Not sure, then, if the
issue here is to do with the cookie or something else.


I am confused and irritated beyond belief and the more I surf the web
the more websites I'm coming across that switch my PC off.

Other things I've done is delete all the history. It did nothing. It
also didn't help when I upgraded to service pack 2.

Please please please if someone can give me any ideas or insight into
what could be going on I'd be so immensely grateful.

I'm already seriously considering just buying a new computer which
clearly is a silly reaction to this problem. Oh and incidentally I
seem to have plenty of memory.


Thank you!

...Damon
