Calling All Geeks!

Dear Readers,
I need your help. I'm not much of a techie, and I need to solve this dilemma. Several days ago I suddenly realized I was unable to comment on other blogs. Whenever I click 'publish comment' I see a small 'Error on Page' at the bottom of the browser page. What can I do to get rid of the error and bring things back to normal?
PS (It's raining in Salalah today :-)

PS 2 (Bloody hell, I can't even comment on my own blog. Suburban, I use Internet Explorer. It's my work computer so I can't change it! HELP!)


  1. What browser are you using? I used to have that happen a lot with IE. I use Chrome now, and it's Bomb-Proof.

  2. Hmm, I use Firfox..
    I used to have the same problem, but it was because the internet was so slow!

    Sometimes the cookies are turned off so you need to check that too.

  3. have you tried posting the comment again when you get the error note.

  4. Time to clear out your cache.
    In IE go to tools/clear browsing history
    In the pop up box clear everything except your passwords and then shut down IE
    It would be a good idea to run disk cleanup in the start/programs/accessories/system tools, and get rid of a load of unwanted junk
    Then resart your computer and hopefully all will be well. good luck

  5. Do what Suburban said, ignore James or anything to do with IE.

  6. That's a bit rude Geek. If you had read her post properly you would have seen that it is a work's computer and that she cannot install another browser. I agree that IE is the worst bit of software on the planet that's why I have Mac's and Linux machines at home.

  7. I say just drop the laptop and get work to give you a new one ;)

    Or, you could try James' instructions...

    ho hum.

  8. Can you post comments from anyone elses machine outside the office? Can it happen from another machine in your office? This would narrow it down somewhat to your personal office computer OR the company network firewall.
    Make sure IE has the latest updates from Microsoft.

  9. Extremely frustrating. I'm commenting from home. SO I know the problem is my work computer. Waiting for IT people to come fix my problem. Thanks for the comments
