You are lucky- the upgrade to Explorer 8 was a disaster for me. Knocked
out my Wi-Fi ability on my own home network. finally figured out it was
Explorer that caused the problem, uninstalled it and was back in
business again- 2 hours later. What a pain!

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.
