So - its OK here ?

Do you do a clean every now and then - delete unwanted things ? Sometimes they can build up.

Also - do you have an "ad-blocker" enabled ? It might be affecting them ?

Also - are you using a good browser - not an old one ? Even with a good one you might have to go over to another one. Give it a try.

I gather you also need the latest "Flash" player installed.

NB: I don't use either so am not an expert - but there's a few ideas ... :)

This cyber attack is a worry. They don't mention names but it seems to a very specific country.

We all need to be careful and keep our "security' up to date.

I use a good service but there are a few good ones - and not that expensive eg Norton and McAfee are two that come to mind.

Not sure how - but I seem to have a new Edge. 2 ?

Seems much better - faster. Came with an update.

Yeah I got it too, so it must have been an auto-update if you had the previous Edge. I am still using Chrome though, and update it sometimes.

The only real issue is the "spelling" now - I have to constantly "add" to the dictionary again. Not sure why they would be lost.
