For those that haven't seen it, I have also posted a thread about upgrading Internet Explorer to a more recent/up-to-date version.

YG - I will be putting a version up for Google Chrome soon, done in exactly the same format if people find it easy to understand.

A really big thanks, hope it will sort mine out, (Its ten years old) Steam version I expect. :-D

I second that TBK.

GR should be doing this. Errol, you are a STAR

:-D :-D


TheBlackKnight Report 13 Jun 2013 10:06

I think GR owe Errol a big thank you for being so kind & doing what he has done. It's a pity GR did not think to do it for it's own members. Well done Errol.


GeordiePride Report 13 Jun 2013 09:24

It's a huge thank you to Errol that the problems I was experiencing due to GR's change over have now been solved. Well done Errol.

Yes, very useful.

This has instructions for clearing your browser cache, which is important to do on a regular basis, and will significantly help to ensure web pages load properly and completely, especially relevant if you are having difficulty loading your or another members tree, which seems prone to problems if your cache is cluttered up.

Be careful before deleting cookies and passwords, though. If in doubt, don't.

Also be aware that certain sites or functions you might use may not work if you disable add-ons, so you still need the 'full' version for these to work properly.

However, it is unlikely to resolve problems such as the 'dreaded' error message some members are experiencing, so don't expect miracles.
