The home page would appear then vanish leaving a blank page before I could navigate to the forum link. I had to use the back key several times befor I could catch the link. This has happened for the last couple of days.
apologies for posting back so late, I reverted to IE7 proble still existed,but found that the dns client in services was disabled, have now enabled it and pc seems ok, now have to decide IE7 orIE8, thanks to all for you suggestions
