I need some technical computer help, please.
I’ve had to downgrade to my old, fossil of a computer. It got me online, slowly but surely, just a year and a half ago, using AOL 4.0. (Speed and ease are not important to me, obviously.) The old dinosaur has a 1.2 gig hard drive, with 7 or 8 mb of RAM, depending on when you
So where can I find a free web browser that will work with my old system?
I have an ISP (Earthlink, using a manual connection that the tech support guy graciously set up for me because my computer doesn’t have enough RAM to load Earthlink 5.0), but all I have on the computer right now is an ancient version of IE, and none of the web sites I normally use will accept anything earlier than IE 4.0. So I’m unable to sign on to Hotmail, Yahoo, Excite, etc. I can get to the home page, but I can’t complete the sign-on process to get to my e-mail account, for example. I get script error messages every time I access any web site at all, but I can occasionally read the page. Graphics are almost nonexistent, but I’m not concerned with
how good a page looks or how fast it loads. I just want access to my accounts! (And the SDMB has been the ONLY site that allowed me to log in! How odd…)
I’m certain there’s a way for me to access the web pages I need, because I did so on this exact same machine less than eighteen months ago. I just don’t know how to find a simple, free web browser.
Thanks in advance for any help!
