Re: My 32-bit browsers and Skype are not working online but My 64-bit browser is work

only 64 bit browsers wiil work with 64 bit Operating sysytems....

Each of those you listed have 64 bit versions

Set up IE 8 first and get it connected to the net by going to Tool/options...hit the connections tab and fill it in.

When you install the others after fixing up IE... it will copy the connection information from IE and set up automatically.

Personally, I would stick to having just one browser...most of them do pretty much the same thing these days

Thanks for trying to sort out my problem Clevo.
My system runs the 64 bit Operating system and the 32 bit Operating system too which is why my browsers and skype used to work on my system.
Each of those you listed have 64 bit versions
If I can get 64 bit versions please tell me which one will allow me to download flash player. because i am really missing watching you tube.
Set up IE 8 first and get it connected to the net by going to Tool/options...hit the connections tab and fill it in.
I am using IE 8 64 bit at the moment and it works. Please see my WHAT IS WORKING list.

I design web pages and I need to test them in different browsers and yes they do pretty much the same thing, but you may be suprised at how they can differ as well.
Thanks again for your time Clevo.

There is not a 64-bit version of Flash. Eventually, but not right now.

Actually, I don't stick with just one browser. Example - I'm accessing Blackboard at UK, and the BB admin recommends using FF. Other times, using IE has better success. I don't use a 64-bit browser as there is not a performance advantage. I can't think of any site which requires 4GB or more of memory.

Thanks Lemur for letting me know. I wont bother trying to install anymore 64-bit browsers.
I don't use a 64-bit browser as there is not a performance advantage.
I don't use a 64-bit browser out of choice. I use one because it's the only one that works right now.
I think my only solution will be to get a shop to fix my pc.
Thanks again Lemur for your input.

If you started having this problem Oct 1, why don't you roll back to a time before then?
