cocod2........try pressing F11 on your keyboard - see if that helps.

It makes the page fill the screen: you may be able to see the buttons that you need.

Press it again to return to 'normal'

Think about all the help that you have. No need to worry, anymore about the computer. We will do that for you.
Thank you Ken.

I am a lurker on this forum and have gained a vast amount of knowledge from everyone posting here. I am learning not teaching.
The tuts are amazing. I noticed this thread and am compelled to ask if this is the world record of posts in regard to font size?

Hi Coco

Sorry you are not feeling well. Its been very hot here 100 degrees, awful.

In any event as far as getting new antivirus. I completely confident in saying that you should go with MSE, Microsoft Essentials as your real time scan, Malwarebytes to scan once a week to be sure there is no other malware and Windows FireWall, which is already on your system. These are all free, why pay,if you can get better or at least as good for free.

To say you went to site and saw an overflow is just not enough information, sorry. I do know that overflows do happen on ocassion and it is nothing to worry about, unless they cause computer problems, that are a concern.

Make sure that you are using Windows Media Player for the Videos, that should work.
If you go to search and type default, go to the default programs screen, where you can see the default video player.

hi rich well the heat was and is oppresive to say the least...and yet it continues. hope you have air/c

ok in terms of norton i have many many months left on it so i will stay with it till it ends.

now the sight you sent me for the antivirus would be
for the one pc i want to have it on.... correct
do i call norton first to have it transferred to my new laptop then download the site you sent me.....

as for the stack overflow i have seen this alot on
facebook next time it pops up i shall sent more info.

thanx rich
