    Hi Nigel, you need to use IE11. You need to turn off all filtering and install an add-on.

    Hi there. I see you're in IE11. Did it not ask you to install the add-on?

    Not that I'm aware of, what is it called?

    Hi there. Try turning off your Popup Blocker. The only good info I could find was this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...ec9f085?page=2

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the reply. But as said, tried *all* common sense things under the sun. Seems to be a remote issue that eventually passes, but man does it seem to take a long time.
