I just might have to eat my words about fireing gmail.It seems that maybe the proble I was haveing is in this computer.I was haveing a lot of trouble with internet explorer and all of my programs being slow to open and lock up and not responding when “told’ to close.so I had a discussion with the computer support people and I had to rekill the computer and reinstall my programs starting with the security software that I use. now for some reason it is working so far.
I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that it remains so.if not I’m back on the phone and I guess we will be trying something else.
I think that maybe just maybe the real culprit is internet explorer 7 I made the mistake of allowing it to reinstall it’s self back into the computer.and you tube would not play gmail was slow to open.Dumped ie7 and low and behold you tube works,gmail opens up and when i click the X to close explorer it does! You Tube and Gmail I now humbly admidt that you were not the problem.that evil corporation is the real enemy of this computer.
