So my laptop running XP crashed and my job requires me to be connected to a remote computer almost 10 hours out of the day. We use Web Ex PcNow which never gave me problems with XP (until it crashed the computer )
So now I'm running Vista 64bit on a borrowed laptop from the company.
Here is what''s happening:
In IE8 , right before I'm asked to enter my password to begin the session, the entire computer freezes.
In Firefox 1.5 - 2.0 The computer also freezes at this point.
In Firefox 3.x I am prompted to install the webex plugin and receive this error message : "Installation script not found" 204
In Opera - The computer doesn't freeze , but the password box never pops up.
The pcnow tech support guy instructed me to download IE 7 as pcnow doesn't support IE 8 ( even though the site says IE 6 , 7 , or better. morons)
or Firefox 2.0
As we all know, IE 7 won't even run on a vista 64bit , and 2.0 firefox was hard to find and didn't work out in the end anyway.
Note: When the computer freezes the clt alt del option doesn't work either. I am forced to manually restart.
I've also tried using IE and Firefox in 32bit mode and it still freezes everything. Java is updated, firewalls down , pop up blockers disabled.
Please help :-)
