I have not been able to post anything since the 10th from my computer at home.  I'm doing this from work which I don't like to do.  I need to talk to a VBB representative again.  I tried earlier but she couldn't seem to figure out my problem.  When I want to reply to a post it takes me back to the original page on the site.  Also it removed my picture and the part after the posts that say contact the person privately.  Anybody have any ideas what might have happened?  As far as I know nothing has changed with my computer.

you might need to check cookies and allow from this site, my only thought. Good luck , hope you get it solved soon.

The only thing I'm having trouble with is sharing a new recipe. That part of the site has been "gooey" for a few days now. I'll keep checking daily.

I have windows 8, but what might the problem be for 7?  Everything was fine until I went to post on the 11th.

Windows 7 security has changed.  I had to purchase  Windows Security 2011  Sunday. I purchased it from Windows on line. I was surprised.

I guess the trouble is with my computer. I'm using my husband's and it works fine.  VBB couldn't seem to find anything on their end so it has to be with my computer.  Don't know why or how it happened.  It was all of a sudden.

Please check the security of your computer. I mentioned  that I had to purchase and up grade my security through Microsoft.

Sometimes automatic updates from Microsoft can mess up your settings.

Seems that microsoft has a lot of updates.  I still can't figure out how to fix the problem.  Guess I'll just have to use my husband's computer.

Judy, have you deleted temp files lately?  Sometimes when there are too many in the cache it will cause problems on sites with flash images like this one.  I delete mine at least once or more each day.  Just a thought.......

H.M. Please - what/which/where are temp files?  I run Windows Defender, Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter at least 5 times a week.
Is that correct?

I think all our problems are due to our computers.  I'm writing this from work on one of the computers I can use.  The other one has had "gooey in the middle" for the last few days.   Like my computer at home, as far as I know nothing has changed.  One day it's fine and the next it isn't.

I  emailed VBB and they couldn't do anything.  However, this morning I was able to post again.  We did nothing with this computer.  Temp files are deleted regularly and that didn't do any good last week.
New question, since my picture went away I'd like to post a new one, but it has been a while and I forgot how to get one from my windows pnoto gallery to my VBB.  Please help.

I figured out how to get the avatar photo into the little square on my account page, but when I go to post it is gone.  I just went back to the accounts page and it is gone from there.  Anyone know what is happening and how i can get it to stay?
