    This was interesting from the article.

    As was the case nearly 20 years ago, webpages that use the bad filename in, for example, an image source will provoke the bug and make the machine stop responding. Depending on what the machine is doing concurrently, it will sometimes blue screen. Either way, you're going to need to reboot it to recover. Some browsers will block attempts to access these local resources, but Internet Explorer, for example, will merrily try to access the bad file.

    Good ole Microsoft

    :)

  3. Windows 10 Upgrade - Key missing

    This fails to answer the question, Microsoft.

    Somewhere in the installation my laptop crashed and rebooted. This destroyed the Windows 8.1 install and left Windows 10 only partially installed - but without the license key!!

    What we all need from Microsoft is a page on their web site we can get to that has a key converted from 7 and 8 and 8.1 to version 10 to remedy this issue for everyone.

    Thanks.

    ie 11

    After installing Windows 10, I constantly have various web pages cause IE to stop and restart. I can not watch anything without at least 5 crashes per half-hour.

  5. It's very interesting that suddenly all sorts of bugs are being discovered in W7 and the W8 Series.
    It's also very convenient for MS that W10 is apparently immune.

    Reading through the comments, only some people can confirm the existence of this bug on their PCs

    This is nonsense really - there are probably all sorts of obscure bugs but they never affect us except in very rare cases. Anyway who cares if an old OS has obscure bugs - do people expect MS to sort every bug that exists - if so, they will be waiting until Trump gets a decent haircut.

    I like internet explorer, the only reason I don't use it is it's track record when it comes to standards or safety, but I do like the look and feel of it.
