Hope the above links helps.
thank you for your info, I did edit the question to show I was using vista (business to be specific). I will try again with some afterthoughts. Will enable Java first. I remember that was a problem in a previous update, I thought that was always running and go through the steps again. I don't feel comfortable messing with the registry and if you can add some advice on how to deal with that safely that would be appreciated also. Thank you so much for your quick response. Also, isupgrade to explorer 10 recommended for vista or is it suppose to accommodate windows 8. I don't want to be a beta tester before they work out all the kinks sincerelyadobelougLou Grubin
