I have an SATA Intel processor based mobile drive tray test computer which has
worked fine with XP/Seamonkey 1.16 and Internet Explorer version 7 up until
recently. The system is a pure research drive tray for other issues which have
nothing to do with the Internet. It is a FP3 level drive. For 'research'
purposes I chose to move to the Internet Explorer version 8.
Poof! After update and the 'included' fixpacks for IE 8 when I tried this last
month, absolutely no way to even start Internet Explorer. It fails with some
kind of inability to write to a memory location error and the program never
opens. I let this coast through to this months critical second Tuesday fix
releases, thinking that might help.
Nope. OK I removed the entire IE 8 application, tried re-install. No help. I
removed this and went back to a 'clean' IE 7 install. No help. At this point
I get the same error with IE 7 as well. Nothing I can do from what little I
know about Windows will recover the Internet Explorer deal.
In this case the entire Seamonkey 1.16 level product still works fine for what
I do with it in this research box. I still have all my address and URL codes,
everything, as well as the Privoxy proxy server operations still running just
fine with this mobile drive tray.
As noted in my footer, I'm a solid OS/2 operating site and think I'd be
classified as a fairly competent tech person at this. But from 20+ intensive
years experience at all this I assure you I understand that sometimes if you
are very good at whatever you still get side flanked by things you don't
understand, grin ..
Is Seamonkey being, in my opinion, unfairly of focus in this? Thoughts?
