I was going to ask a question about connection problems with IE8 but it seems
a lot of other people have beaten me to it. Unlike most people, I am on
dialup so I thought it was having issues because of that although I did not
have the same problems with IE7. Now I see that connection type has nothing
to do with it. Like everyone else, I am experiencing intermitent problems.
Often reloading the page solves the problem. The diagnostics produces no
helpful results. And so on.
I have read the helpful advice being offered but I have a problem with that.
Seems it is up to us to make all sorts of changes to our computers in order
to get IE8 to work. I am always leery about making some of those changes. I
must confess that I am not that knowledgeable about the inner workings of
this beast and am always concerned that I make the changes incorrectly and
really screw up my system. It doesn't help when there are dire warnings
attached to some of the instructions for making those changes!
I trust that Microsoft is working on a much simpler solution to the problem
since it does seem to be very prevalent. Can they not simply write a fix and
include it with their windows updates and save everyone a lot of hassles in
trying to fix the problem themselves?
Sorry if I sound like I'm grousing but it is just all too typical that a new
program comes out from MS and it's got issues. Surely they should be able to
test run new programs better than this by now.
