    I noticed it also didn’t affect people using Macs or Linux.

    Happened to us. We used the laptop for email yesterday, but for once didn’t read blogs all day. Dad sent the link via email and I was able to fix it!

    Duh! I read this post on my Macbook, and forgot about it. When I got home and fired up my PC, I couldn’t connect to the internet. Called Daryl and he reminded me what was happening. Thanks for the fix, Daryl!
