Adobe flash is a shocker these days. Their forum is awash with problems primarily concerning video playback which they show no inclination to tackle. 11.5 was the last decent version that didn't...

These constant updates are, as a previous poster said, a right PITA. Fed up with everything updating all of the time. Difficult to keep ontop of it all, plus you can't help worry that these 'updates'...

Upgrading from IE9 to 11

Just curious. I still run IE9. Under optional windows updates it offers both IE10 and also IE11. Do they have to be updated in order or can I select IE11 and jump straight to it?

I feel for you mate. Reinstalling the OS is a drastic and long winded undertaking. To be met with the same issue is dis-heartening. Clearly internet explorer 11 does not like something in one of your...

Why should all the websites have to change just because MS in their infinite wisdom decides to fiddle yet again. Firefox and chrome manage to update themselves without breaking functionality. All...

Forget IE 11, it's buggy as hell. I'd even roll back to IE9 from 10 too. IE9 is a great browser and works fantastic on every site I use. Beyond that there are problems with 10 & 11

Yeah I see your point. But there is no guarantee MS would make IE12 or beyond available to windows 7. Obviously that would suck big time because IE11 is buggy. But it's the sort of stunt MS may pull....
