<quoted text>Do tell. What stack of bound paper invokes this reaction from the masses?
It is The Women's Room by Marilyn French. It is a Feminist grouch session, catalog of he-done me-wrong, poor me's from 1977 that typifies male bashing. The thing that made me angry when I read it in roughly 78, not long after it came out , was that none of the blasted females in that book took any blanking responsibility for anything that happened to them. It was all the fault of men and circumstances and society's oppression, etc.

I was in grad school. I had just turned single. I was just figuring out how to be self supporting and the problems that entailed. I should have been the target audience and it made me frigging furious. I finished the book and threw it across the room. That felt good, real good at the time, equally good in retrospect.

Anybody who has grouched about Feminism with a capital F could point to that book and justifiably say ,Told you so. It could well be the proto-canonical writing for The Red Pill BS ( which aggravates me just as much as Feminism with a capital F).

I never throw out books. I donate them or sell them at HalfPrice Books. There have been 2 exceptions; The Women's Room and The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by A. N. Roquelaure (aka Anne Rice) which grossed me out and that is saying a lot.

CCCleaner.com is free and cleans everything. You will need to log into all your sites afterward but the cr*p will be gone.

They just released v29. it changed so much, although I didn't notice a bookmark problem. I went back to v28 and restored back to that, then turned off automatic updates. Got really perturbed at the new version. It took the weather forecaster away that I had on an add on bar on the bottom. Everything came back the way I had it.

The bookmark thing might be operator error on my part. Sigh.

Thanks for the link. I may downgrade if I get frustrated enough.

I have had no problems since I turned off flash player. Seeing some of those adds out of the corner of my eye was giving me headaches.

It's a web browser. Did your spaceship just arrive from planet Clueless yesterday?

Microsoft makes Internet Explorer
Mozilla makes Firefox
Google makes Chrome

They are all web browsers, where Windows is an operating system for PC's

They all fill the same function.
Internet Explorer tends to be slower and probably because it is a MS product has been targeted by hackers more than eh others.
Firefox and Chrome are free

I use Firefox and I am pretty satisfied. I am also not at all tech savvy. Ignore Dog on this, he's being snooty and you asked a straightforward question.

Just Google the names and the intro pages and set up will appear. Your bookmarks and favorites will be automatically transferred from one to another if you choose to download. You can take it off your computer and go back if you don't like it.

My computer came with IE and I still have it on so there is room for 2 browsers on most computers

All will work on a PC. Apple has its own operating system and web browser

Thank you! I heard about Firefox when it came out (here, I think), but then when I went to upload it it looked strange and I am always wary of stuff like that so I didn't do it. My IE is really slow at home. I wonder if I should change then. Then should I keep IE and just use the others. And will it screw up my computer.

I am on the computer all day at work without a break, so I don't go on the laptop too much when I am home so I don't really stay up on things. I have IT guys at work to handle my stuff here!

Darn, let's try to get around the censors again...

Replace glassbowls with the profanity that it rhymes with (thank you Carolyn Hax) and write out the whole last word (dbags is just an abbreviation)
