That reminds me of earlier. I was looking at a laptop a friend is selling, It is for my partner. The cr*p this guy had installed on it, I felt really itchy to delete about half of it and dig out X-setup. grrlllp! (got an IBM off ebay instead BTW)
No idea why your beastputer is playing up. Get Firefox!
Is there some more of this story Timm? Please?
