    Our big Christmas party is coming up at this site

    http://scottwigginton.com/newf_net/chat.htm

    I'm trying to get on with ie 8.0.7600. I enable popups, approve the active x control and even add the site to my trusted sites and change the "trusted" zone settings to the lowest security possible. When I enter my user name windows pops up an error that says "windows has blocked the s/w because it can't verify the publisher". There are no options to run it anyway. There's a red shield on the error box that looks like windows defender so I turn that off and still the same result.

    Any help getting the site to work would be appreciated.
    I will D/L & try it with a different browser but it would be nice to know how to handle this situation.

    In case it matters:
    i7 940 ASUS MB 12G RAM
    2T HD
    Win 7 64bit
    Kaspersky IS - which has not sent any messages

    A quick "hit" from your link using FireFox shows this:-

    I'll recommend you install another internet browser!

    Well, I d/l'd safari & Opera and they both worked. Just thought I might learn something. Looks like firefox either didn't work or needed a Java plug in.
