Thought some of you techie people might know the answer to this...
Apart from the fact that I've experienced so many computer problems over the past few months I'm ready to chuck the whole lot out of the window, I'm having trouble with IE9. I've been running this for ages without problem.
I recently bought a new laptop, also running IE9 but some websites don't show up correctly. The laptop is identical in every way to the old one, where the websites show up fine. For example, I went to download iTunes, but as soon as clicked 'Download' I just got a blank screen and no download. When I do this on the old laptop, a little window pops up in the top LH corner, then the download begins at the bottom. I've checked pop-up settings and they are the same. Eventually, I managed to get Safari onto the new laptop where the download worked fine.
What I cannot understand is why IE9 is behaving differently on two identical machines? I have checked all the security settings etc. and they are identical. Java is also up-to-date on both as is all other Microsoft updates. It's almost as if something is blocking things appearing? The old laptop is running AVG, the new one is running Microsoft Security Essentials. The new one had a free trial of McAffee on which I removed before installing MSE. I wondered whether it might be something to do with this, though I did download a tool from their website which was supposed to remove every trace of it so there was no conflict.
Any suggestions (apart from the usual change to Safari, Chrome, Firefox etc.!)?
