Sorry about the late reply .... Thanks for the help... some days it works and some days it doesn't .... today, I tried going into GMail and it did not work ... so I did some other work and tried it again about an hour later and it worked. I have no idea why except that I swear that computers hate me (ha, ha). Seriously, it is obviously some quirk with this PC so I will fool around and eventually figure it out. Have a great weekend and, again, thanks.
