Customer Question
My computer set-up is as...
My computer set-up is as follows : I use a slightly older Dell with an MS XP sp3 OS and I utilize both a FF 3.6.3 brower and a Google Chrome 5.0.375.70 browser. In this situation I am referring only to my GC browser, not FF. My Classic Google home page as well as my igoogle page (which I actually have set as my home page) are in either case not loading correctly. I have no gadget icon controls on any of my gadgets on my igoogle page , and none of the usual link info icons to be found anywhere on my classic google page. I have attempted many different fixes up to and including including uninstalling / installing the GC browser , all to no avail . So , I turn to you for a possible positive and instructive answer to my problem.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
