Hi Derek,

I have checked the system, and it was Windows that used DEP to close down my access to Ebay via favourites that I have used for months.

Guys......I understand this is not a computing WEB site nor this a computing string & I do not act for Bill Gates  %%

W7 as previously suggested is a stable OS platform....however I have some 60 updates.........DEP [Data Execution Prevention] may have been an influence  >>:-( or a change in an update .......there may be some DEP settings that are adjustable  :o .....Derek

  A few 64's plus other oldie's,  accessory's,  games, etc tucked away at a mate's house.  He can't remember where
  he got them from, or what for, as he has no interest in computers etc. He's just a human magpie.
