@ Mirocu - this thread is an excellent idea! Thank you for the tips, I have written them down outside of my PC just in case.

Hope you understood me, computer linguistics in English is not my strong suit! tongue.gif

I added a part. To get to failsafe in the first place, hit F8 during startup smile.gif

Have a problem at Bethsoft, something to do with Java. When making a post I canīt do anything besides writing anymore; I canīt get the smiley list up, I canīt bring up the color menu, link to pixies, change font etc etc.

I have the latest Java and all, could someone please help me with this? kvleft.gif

Edit: Somehow it seems to work when I edit my post but not when I make it huh.gif

mirocu - You can normal post and there is a button (lower right) for 'more post options' that allows you to preview and such and better access some features. I bet you already know that though and it hasn't solved your problem since things like the emoticon menu are normally available in either mode.

I just checked over there and I don't share the problem you seem to have.

I don't know about java's except the ones I drink in the morning. So. . . my suggestion would be to PM a mod over there and see if they have any ideas or can help.

Good luck.

Already did the things you suggested, Acadian smile.gif I PMd CCNA and he put me forward to the official troubleshooting thread. Hopefully I can get an answer there.
I donīt have a problem at the computer Iīm currently sitting at, itīs just my own hunk-a-junk thatīs acting up dry.gif

Thanks though and have an extra cup of java today, Acadian. Maybe it helps to solve my problem! biggrin.gif

Downloaded Microsoft Essential and now I use that instead of Windows Defender since they canīt both be used at the same time. Anyone who knows which is the better program?

If Wikipedia is to be believed, Windows Defender is an antispyware program and Microsoft Essential is an actual antivirus suite. So definitely use Microsoft Essential over Defender.

Yes, I suspected thatīs how it is. I have other programs for spyware and of course I have the Windows firewall enabled. I think this is the best I can do to secure my PC and still not pay anything biggrin.gif

Installed the Fallout 3 DLCs today and I did what I always do prior to that; I made a new savepoint. Those have helped me greatly before so I always make sure to have a fresh one just in case smile.gif

Ok, so today I had to make a system reset because yet again an update made it impossible to quote at Bethsoft. Itīs already impossible to use the emoticon list, colours, etc etc but when I canīt quote I had to do something.

Slight problem though this time. I get an error when the puter starts up but I donīt know what it is and everything seem to be working. At least for now. Beside the system reset I also disabled Windows Update to avoid the problem in the future. I donīt get it, why are the updates making Bethsoft forums acting up? wacko.gif

I'm not sure it's the updates screwing things up on the Bethsoft forums. There's a thread in general discussion about people having problems with the forums, including being unable to quote people.

But itīs after an update I got this problem. Now after the reset, the quoting works again, although not the colours, emoticon list etc.

I meant it's most likely that the changes made by the update react badly with something on the forum's end, rather than the problem being with your computer.

Not sure what day it was, but we had to get the computer tech Bro-In-Law (who is forever in our gratitude anyways) to come and sort ours out...

Turns out it was trying to install updates in one order and the programs wouldn't take them unless it was done in another order...

Like, it wouldn't update - or was it upgrade to - Internet Explorer 11 without installing Service Pack 2 first...But it was trying and failing and messing the comp up a bit...

Anyways, we got that sorted...But now my email, which I do through IE (The wife and kids use Firefox) won't use the emoticons...

Bloody windows updates...I wonder if that's knocked out some of the "Buttons" like the quote one...

Iīm with you. Like I said Iīve disabled windows updates on both my puter and my parents, and I see no reason to enable it again. It just messes things up!

Donīt fix what ainīt broken!! mad.gif

*Checks laptop*

Wow, I've got over 600Mb of updates to download

Might have to see about getting those, most of them are listed as security updates.

I just figure it's Microsoft trying to fix their bloody broken OS.

I've got Windows 8, it came with the laptop. sad.gif


I've also got to download an updated driver for the touchpad, for some reason the left side of the clicker's been completely reassigned for no reason, and I can't seem to do anything about it.

Which is why Iīve now disabled the updates. My computer is fine and if Iīm not told what they do I donīt see the point with all these updates. I mean, what do they fix when I canīt see any difference? The only time I do see a difference is when they move stuff around like you described and I get mad.gif !
