I was trying to upload a graphic to one of the threads in the forum and the wait symbol kept running. I checked the allowable file sizes to see if it might be related, then checked the size of the files I was attempting to upload. These numbers seem a little strange, so if anyone has any observations, please advise. This is a new install (like last night) and the only software loaded is Office 2010. Anyway, since I cannot attach any of my photos since they are too large, the examples are from a print screen pasted into Paint, then cropped to show the bottom left 1/8 th of the screen. The cropped image was saved as a .jgeg and as a .gif .jpeg size 177K .gif size 183K So, the resulting .gif is larger than the .jpeg I tried to taking a snipping tool picture of just the Properties dialog box and it was 22K, still too large to post (19.5K). It also gives me scroll bars that I don't remember from before. I had attached files before this new install and did not seem to have any problems. I do not know what might have changed, so I am continuing to search for a cause of the problem, possibly a video driver. Thanks.
