That message is the main reason I don't want to use Internet Explorer anymore, and it's my fault that it comes up. At some point while I was downloading/installing an update, I got a page of questions and this was one of them - asking me if I wanted a warning every time a webpage is trying to open a site. I rue the day I checked "yes", even though I didn't really understand the ramifications of it.

I had no idea that it was going to ask me this eight times - yes, you read right - eight times to get into my OWN blog. Can you beat that?

I was hoping that some techie wizards would know where I go to uncheck the original question on this??!! Even though I vastly prefer Firefox, there are times when it is expedient for me to use IE, and I'd like to do so with less aggravation.

I'm constantly getting messages I don't understand. I hope Kay had sorted it for you. It's incredible to me how I am still stumbling along.

I too am putting my faith in Kay to have solved your problem. Often, I solve a problem but can't remember what the heck I did.

I never use IE anymore, except to watch Netflix "Watch Now" feature. I hope Kay worked it out for you!

trust is such a hard thing these days.
IE does not trust blogger.
I don't trust congress
I do trust Firefox
and no one trusts that Washington DC can fix the economy that they are ruining.

I'm glad other people had ideas, because I would be lost. Right now my desk holds three computers: two non-working tower types and the craptop.

I don't speak computer language and when I try to fix something I always make it worse because I don't know what the heck I'm doing.

I think computers were built to make us addicted and then to crash to make us crazy.

I hate it when things go awry. Finally (knock on wood) my computer is running well.

Thank you for the great comments on my grand kids stories.

I got a virus on my laptop using IE. A box came up telling me my virus protector was offline and click something to bring it back. Ironic. Plus I couldn't get the message off the screen. Luckily I have a PC too.

I am currently on my iMac.. but I still can't get your pictures or comment area using Safari. Up until a week ago I could.

I noticed that Google has its own search engine that claims to be much faster. They have the beta version out and only for PC right now, but I downloaded it onto my old Dell and I think it is going to be as good or better than firefox!

I've used Firefox almost exclusively from my first computer experiences. Am glad now that I have after reading about your frustration. Hope Kay was able to resolve the issue for you as I wouldn't know what that's about.
