All of a sudden Im having trouble with viewing projects. I go to the project section and click on a project – when it comes up I try to click on one of the ‘thumb nail” views to “switch” to another view and nothing happens. Im not shure if it is something to do with my computer or it is someting to do with the web site – anybody having simsial problems or a possible solution to my problem ??? I thank you for your help and I appologize for posting in this forum but I wasnt shure where to ask for help – Thanks

I just tried mine to test it, and mine is working fine.. It switches from pixs to pixs when you “roll the dice”.

I just chcked it out on the second Project, a Pen. Everything is working okay for me. Changes Views and Zooms Fine.

Might be your Computer. Possibbly try shutting it down and restarting it. That somestimes “Fixes” a problem I’ve spent Hours trying to fix on the Computer itself.

FIRST: go to “Tools”..”.Internet Options”...”Browsing History”....”Delete”...”Apply”....”Okay”. You might be Overloaded with “Temp” files. THEN shut down & restart.

Hope it helps.

Every time I see someone have a problem with a computer on some web site I go to it always ends up being a virus because they haven’t kept up with all of their updates and patches and don’t have an updated antivirus and spyware running all the time.
Go run every critical update your computer needs.
Go make 100% sure your antivirus is up to date.
Go get and run a spyware/malware detector program.
And stop opening e-mail attachments, stop going to questionable sites you have never heard of, and for the love of pete, stop opening those e-card things people send to you because they are so cute :)
Seriously.
This goes for everyone.
Heh.

You might want to take a look at this wiki-article …

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_Shared_Object

... and maybe tell us how many cookies were still on your pc after you ‘deleted’ them all.

As FredG said (sort of …LOL..) What Microsoft & Internet Explorer gives you to “Clean Things Up” leaves a LOT of Dirt behind. Just now I ran the “Tools” etc, thing then “Windows Disc Clean Up”.

It got a few things because I haven’t done it in a few days.

Then I ran a little, fast. easy to use, FREE piece of software “Eusing Window Washer”. You just set the areas you want “Washed” in whatever Browser you want, or all.

I just now AFTER the above MS & IE BS….Hit “Test” it found 135 IE (Cache) Temp Files at 15,450KB, 38 Cookies, at I forget what, 85 IE index.dat files at 7500KB, 25 Windows Temp Files at 2400KB, Widows Recent Documents, Etc. Etc. for a Whole Bunch of KB!!

Then hit “Wash” and 3 or 4 minutes later it’s all off, your memory is freed up and your Computer is Happy Happy Happy because it can run faster and has “Very Little On It’s Mind” i.e. Memory. Eusing also has a FREE Registry Cleaner that is also VERY FAST.

I also have another Older, Free one that will find more, after Eusing runs but I don’t want to reccommened it because if you don’t set it properly you might find yourself with a Brand New Computer and all you have to do is put something on the Hard Drive to operate it because you just Cleaned Off the ENTIRE Hard Drive…..LOL…

Photo Bucket Users… If your on there… Have you checked your Security Settings (I think that’s where it is). By DEFAULT you have Approved about 60 Sites to place Cookies on your Computer. All you have to do is Uncheck the Boxes to get rid if them. Even then a few will Refuse to leave.
