Well I didn't know Pa Bear--I was sure hoping you would since, you seem to
be one most wise MSMVP. I have seen your responses to others and they have
been quite accurate and helpful. So you are "The Bear".
I do apologize for my not mentioning I am running serv pack 3, Mcafee, XP
Home. I have no 3rd party firewall nor do I run any anti-spyware in the
background. I do clean up with MalWareBytes once in a while. Yes Norton
was once installed on this machine. I switched to Mcafee. I don't believe
I had anything open when I installed IE8. Perhaps Defender and Mcafee
running in the background. No I haven't had problems opening attachments
after IE8. I must say though I wish I'd kept explorer 6. I am trying to
use IE8 & the new WLM on a toshiba laptop 1gig celeron with 512 ram. Only
got about 1gig drive free space left (total 15 gig hard drive) --yes it's a
dog. Oh well!
Thankyou very much for your reply and help. Resetting the Feeds Database
worked perfectly. You de "Bear".
