Thanks for the heads up, John. I don't use IE11 much so I would probably not notice if it stopped responding. For testing web sites, I mainly use Firefox, Chrome and MS Edge.
On a related note, Firefox 52 (already in the stream), is removing all plugins except Flash.
MS will be removing Active-X plugins from it's browsers. And Flash support is scheduled for removal later.
Update... Problem was NOT Windows update, it was a Norton update that I did not notice happening at the same time
When I updated Norton after doing a restore, Win10 stopped working again
I have switched to Microsoft Windows Defender and removed Norton and updated Windows again... ie11 is still working
I am now using the FREE Norton Identity Safe that opens my existing password file to auto-fill site logins
I've been using Norton for anti-virus for many years (about 10, I think) and this is the first problem I've had
Still using their free password manager since it reads my existing password file... if I ever have problems with the free program, I will have to find a different password manager
I'm still using the free version of Norton password manager, but it seems to want to make me log in at least once a day... and since the login process goes through the Norton server, it takes a (relatively) long time to process and any "glitch" in the Internet means my main password won't validate
So... is anyone using the open source KeePass program? KeePass Password Safe which says it runs totally on the user's computer
I've been using LastPass for years on all my systems and devices. Very reliable, all encryption is done locally so server access isn't required to open the vault. The encrypted vault is synced to the server and to other devices, and only you have the key.
Thanks, I will look at that one as well... when I did a search for reviews on KeePass, they were almost all 5-of-5 stars... I'm not really concerned about syncing to a Cloud site, so right now I'm leaning toward KeePass... if I make a change (I know how Norton works, and my only problem is that it logs me out and makes me log back in about once a day)
