    Icons

    Okay, I gotta ask;
    Does anyone else have a problem when they click on the 'more' link for the icons?
    When I do that, before they all load, my display goes whacko and starts blinkin' and flashin', and I have to exit the 'more' window.
    My confuser is relatively new, with all the bells & whistles.......and I've never been able to access these wonderful widgets in their full glory.
    WTH?

    Some browsers seem to have difficulty with opening the additional window. I found Firefox works fine.

    It's the only way I can describe it.
    The D.C. page goes nuts.
    Maybe it is the IE version interface. I have 7.0. I dunno. I don't have Firefox on this unit, but I do at home. I will have to try what Rocky said.

    Sorry I cannot suggest anything else. I know when I ran Explorer it would flash, then make the page blink/unusable.

    Mine will do the same thing if I try and use them. Not a problem for me though as I'll survive without using them... kinda nice knowing that it's not just my computer though. ha!

    This IS an Internet Explorer problem and has been happening for a couple of years now. Using Firefox will eliminate the problem.....

    Yeah it go crazy for me too. Its a pity really, cause I could use some of them.

    I don't make a habit of using the emoticons here. I like alternatives, and I dislike IE and the way it works. Firefox is best for me, and there are other alternatives to that as well.

    They drove my PC nuts...sometimes taking 45+ seconds to fully open.
    When I bought a new iMac with four gigs of RAM, the first thing I did to test the speed was hit the 'more' button...all appeared in a second...

    I never go there anymore and I used to love those Smilies.

    Hint:
    Since it happens toward the end....just stop the page from fully loading and then you can pick from most of them.
