Ah, Microsoft, Microsoft, Microsoft…
I’ve been having trouble with Internet Exploder for some considerable millennia now, so I finally give up on it in disgust and switch to FireFox (while reflecting that the only reason I went back to MSIE, a few years back, was because I had clients who used the ‘browser of choice’ *cough* and I thought it best to be in a position to be able to provide some support for it).
And then I have a problem with FireFox, caused by a Microsoft ‘priority’ update. [Boring techie detail elided]. What appeared to be the final step was to perform one (more) Windows Update.
“Would you take part in a satisfaction survey?” Microsoft’s website ‘asks’.
“Oh, go on then,” thinks I, with a sigh.
I answer questions about the ‘support experience’ I’ve had, and then I’m asked if it’s OK for them to collect data about my system.
“Oh, go on then,” thinks I, with a sigh…
… and then:
Problem caused by Microsoft Internet Explorer
This problem occurred because Microsoft Internet Explorer, which was created by Microsoft Corporation, was slow or unresponsive.
This type of problem occurs when a program is slow or has stopped responding and you choose to shut it down. This is also referred to as an application hang.
‘Hang,’ yes. Anyone got a noose?
