keep it running/ your computer that is....

Postby DAVID THOMPSON » Mon Nov 20, 2017 1:22 am

Firefox the browser seems to have died on all my computers still running XP

on the windows 10 machine a new version auto installed and runs fine

for all of you fellows on a Budget may i suggest

take a thumb drive to a computer that still works on the net
and download a copy of SLIMJET by Flash PEAK
it seems to run in xp vista maybe
THERE IS A VERSION OF OPERA BROWSER THAT ALSO SEEMS TO WORK
SLIMJET SEEMS TO WORK OK ON SOME BUT NOT ALL
yes i work on my own computers
and do not give advice very often on them but we are here for the bikes
and you need it to work to read this web site
if your browser is still working get SLIMJET loaded ASAP check other browsers on your computer one of them may still work
but probably not for long

Thank you ..... although I have computers with current versions of windows, I still have computers with XP because some software I use only runs on XP.
