 1) I have been having issues with Chrome not showing videos correctly. On any site that has videos, Facebook also. 

2) My FireFox looks corrupted.  I uninstalled it, downloaded a new one, installed it and it was fine. Turned off my pc to go to Menards... when I was back, and turned on pc, FireFox was corrupted again. 

3) Videos that I have on my pc work fine.  Skype video works fine.

4) Now I am using Slimjet... everything works fine.  Any ideas?

I have xion on my pc. It had many skins which I downloaded and installed, up until yesterday.  Then I only had one.  What happened to the others...anyone else come across this problem?  OS is windows7, 64 bit. 

I looked in the folder and no skins are there.

I know I've posted here before, when Pixarra offered a version of their Twistedbrush painting software. They are doing it again, in case someone is interested!!

Another odd question. My photoshop has been developing little quirks. The newest being when I want to duplicate a layer, the small window creeps upwards till it disappears and the only way to say yes is hit *enter*.

Any ideas why it happens?

Thank you, tbc

      How do I know if the colors I see on my monitor are as they should be? A friend of mine said the colors are too shocking, bright.  To me they look fine, the same as when I bought this monitor/pc, about a year ago.  Is there a standard for this type of thing?  Thanks so much for any help!!!  tbc

 My hp is fried...well the motherboard, power supply and a few other things are gone.  The hard drive is fine, as is the cd burner and a kool neon fan.  Anyway my pc guy will install in this , my new one... the cd thing , I don't think it hurts to have an extra, and he said he can put the hard drive inside the pc as well, or I can have it as an external hard drive, just plugging it in when I want to use it.  My question is, if it is installed internally that means it will alw...

Anyone that still uses Photoshop 6... My problem is, when I save a pic in any format( jpeg, png, bmp, etc.), there is a difference in what the pic looks like, from the original...in photoshop. Sometimes slight color loss, or the pic is too dark. I have never had this problem in any other graphics program I use. Any ideas would be appreciated!!
Thank you!! tbc

I was wondering if there is a way to keep the "preview" window open while I am painting in say dogwaffle? If I want to look at one of my cloud photos for a reference for a picture I am painting, I have to keep clicking on that window to bring it up, then when I start painting it is not visible anymore. I would like to keep the preview window visible, while I am painting.
Thanks for any help, ideas or whatnots!!!

This article was in The New York Times this morning. It is an interesting read and explains why Microsoft has put off releasing Windows Vista.

Sometimes my pc screen has this faint flutter or wave. It does not happen with any specific program. This just started about 3 weeks ago. Anyone have any ideas what this might be?

This morning I tried to save several of my folders in Outlook Express, to my F drive (maxheadroom...extra storage, not physically attached to the harddrive). Long story short, I ended up having them read by notepad, lost all my folders in Outlook Express,to drive F, where I couldn't read them( hit move instead of copy)...please no laughing !! After a couple of hours of trying to rename the folders, I finally decided to do that system restore, where you can restore your computer to a previou...

I was up at my daughters for a few days and since the new baby has had very little time for computing. When I was there in April, I installed the 2005 Nortons anti-virus, ad-aware, cleaned up her machine ( ran defrag, disk cleanup, etc.) all of which she very seldom did, but I had it running smoothly, no viruses, etc. Also did an online virus check at pc pitstop to confirm no viruses that Nortons said.
So this time, when I started her computer, it seemed fine , but it froze when I was ...
