IE??? I hadn't used IE since 2005.

Unfortunately, the results using IE are exactly the same as using Chrome - just a bit slower.:p

The Dropbox file installed fine - I'm off to find the update.

Here's what that page looks like from here (clickme (http://www.fenlanders.com/misc/connect2.jpg)).

The direct 32-bit and 64-bit links give "page not found". Maybe they pulled it. I don't do weird.;)

I don't think beta software will be ideal for this user, especially as it will mean uninstalling AVG - not always the easiest thing to do.
