-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Is 98 better than XP?

Why would you 'assume' it is XP..if I can get to it with no problems.

It is possible that the setup of one of those programs on XP reacts
differently than it does in 98?  In other words..if it were set up and
working on XP..and then installed on 98..is it possible the same set up
would not work..and it would not be a 98 or an XP problem.. but merely a
'setup' difference.  Neither OS would be wrong ...or bad...but... simply
different.

Just so you know.. I am running XP and Norton Personal Firewall 2003 with
its popup stopper..but..I do allow cookies...(perchance that explains my
weight problem! lol!)  I also am running Norton Systemworks 2003.

I wonder... would  you all be interested in going through my settings on IE
to see if we could find the difference?

I am running IE 6.0.2800 if this helps.......

I would rather help than see you snatch your head bald...lol!

Hugs,
Rose

LOL...I am sorry, Rose. I guess I assume too much.

We both have the same company, and living here, the "other side of the
water" can mean only 3 miles, or 1 hour...LOL....depends. Other than that,
we are both on the same wavelength. If I can open a specific website, then
the supplier is not blocking it.

Yes, he does have Zonealarm, that I set up, yes, he does have a pop-up
stopper, that I set up, yes, he does have Norton, that I set up. Yes, we do
the cookie thing, yes, I checked with the site provider. As I said, this is
a harmless home website, and it has to be an XP thing, but I am danged if I
can figure it out. I want to exorcise XP from his machine, and go back to my
calm, collected, easy-going, always-works 98 ;-) Next project, if I ever get
time.......is to incinerate XP.

| I have no problem viewing the page either..and I am on XP...
|
| Does he have a firewall?
|
| Have you checked all of his settings?
|
| I have seen an error message like this ... and I think it was on a site
that
| insisted it had to have you accept cookies...
| Now, this personal site might not..but I wonder if the owner..web space
| provider..has something going on?
| That is just a thought.
|
| Unfortuantely the error message is at fault here in that it is not
| definitive enough....
|
| I do not understand about you both having the same 'company' and 'side of
| the water'.
|
| If by company, you are talking your ISP's.. and by side of the water you
| mean Europe and North America....
| then... yes I think the settings can be way different by the ISP's.
|
| Not sure where you are... (not sure where I am...lol!  - Las Vegas is
where
| I am..... I think.... lol!) nor where your friend is..but.. have you had
| someone... with the same ISP on his side of the water test this site?
|
| Just some thoughts....
|
| Hugs,
|
| Rose
| (I am in the desert..so I am on NO side of the water...ha ha!)

|
| OK XP fan, LOL...
|
| Tell me, kind lady, how do I set my friend's XP computer to open websites
| that every one else can open.
|
| Here is a website that he cannot open, along with the error messages. This
| ain't rocket science, just a simple home website.
|
| http://www.thehudgins.net/hudgeandphyllis/index.htm
|
| Got any ideas? The error messages give me basically nothing on a google
| search. One possible was that it was the connection. Unfortunately, both
of
| us have the same company, and the company does not block the server on my
| side of the water, and certainly shouldn't on his side of the water.
|
| I have no time to figure out what hoop XP wants you to jump thru. It opens
| fine for my 98. I tried changing his security settings for no other reason
| than that XP decides what it wants you to do, but still no help.

| I never have trouble with my 98, and will not trade it at this point for
any
