Jim's suggestion looks imperative but impossible now.
IE8 doesn't "respond". My internet connection is obviously fine as I am getting new emails. But when I try to get on the internet, I get nada. C+A+D gets me "this program is not responding". Does anyone know how I can dump IE8 and go back to IE7, if it is still somewhere on my computer? If I can't get on the internet, how could I get a new browser?

Because I am genetically paranoid, and knowing that Greedy Billy wants
to compete in the search engine business, I wonder if your trouble is
not Google gone amok, but Explorer. Maybe it's time to switch to
Firefox [or whatever it's called].

I know I've said it b4, but I hate upgrades.  This morning Win
Explorer 8 jumped on board, and though it doesn't cause any real
problems (so far) I really dislike the way it grays out most of the
web address, making black only one word.

But what's really ticking me this time is Google.  Idid NOT upgrade
to a new Google thing they kept pushing because I didn't know what
would happen.  I was just fine w/out it.  But they still changed
things on me.  I googled "currency conversion calculator"  and got:
Results: 1-10 of about 9,050,000

Sounds good but they will only allow me to look at ONE - which is
something google wants to add to my igoogle toolbar - a toolbar I
don't have & don't want..  I could click on a right hand sidebar of
sponsored links, which of course I don't want.  I don't want to buy
anything I just want the exchange rate for a euro.  The largest
portion of the search list page is totally BLANK.

Obviously this can't be right.  So I scroll and scroll until I'm
past the sponsored links and THERE they are.  I cannot immediately
see my results until I first look at what goolge and it's sponsors
have to offer.

Why does everyone want to slap another toolbar on my screen? I
currently have NINE available of which I allow 4 to show and that
takes up 20% of my screen as it is with small icons.
