Aw, thanks w4r. Not much help though, I'm afraid. I can't afford to buy an Apple! I blew my budget recently on a computer purchase...

Actually, Vista and I are starting to get along a little better. I have a few more suggestions to try on the email problem. I've never had trouble taking Outlook Express files from one OS to another before, either...but it was inevitable!

I think I figured out the game thing--somehow, an early version of Adobe flash player is installed. It's not supported on 64-bit machines, so IE hangs or dies when I try to look at the daily Sudoku and Crossword on the CBSnews site. (Nope...I never read the news....just do the puzzles! ) So tonite when I'm logged off of, I'll deinstall Flash and try to download Flash 11 again. I think that version of it is compatible with my machine!

I've bookmarked the filezilla site for further study... When I'm rested. Actually, I loved 1999, and WS-FTP is like second nature after all this time... We old codgers like to keep our bad habits!

Oh, and I've been trying to google, yahoo, etc for 3 days difficult at 24.4 Kbps... (yes, some of us old codgers are on dial-up, too...we live in a dead zone for things like cable, TV/radio signal and cell phones. If I had the money and less forest between us and the sky, satellite might be an option.
