    For the last few days, the preview function does not work for me. However, once I click on a topic, then the preview box comes up (which of course, is too late).

    Shhhheeeessssccchh! I thought was just me. I have that, and more. Some do work, and on some I get the preview, but it flashes on and off.

    Just checked: it worked fine (IE, version 5.5 as well as version 6.1).

    What are your browsers (and versions)?

    Cees, I was using 6 last week, but then I reformatted my 'C' drive and am using 5.5 now. (Take your pick).

    Oh, and I can get all 3 things to happen on the same page.

    Cees,

    AOL 7.0 (I'm not sure which version of IE it uses). Tomorrow I'll check from work and see if I have the same problem.

    Well, it works from my computer at work, so I guess it must have something to do with my computer at home. It was working before...are there any specific settings I should check?

    Last night it was working again (from home/AOL), so I guess it's just one of those unexplained mysteries...

    Cees, you might want to pop a couple of asprin before you go on. (pause while you get those down) [​IMG] My previews that 'flash' on and off only do that when they are positioned at around the upper 1/3rd of my screen. If I scroll it up or down it stays. LOL
    As for my monitor, I have a 21" Viewsonic, and a Hercules 3D Prophet II GTS. I'll be loading up XP Pro next week with a new motherboard. -And get back on this.

    I just had to write back. As of late yesterday, the previews works perfect now. My guess is that I have a piece of software of set something that made it do that, but I haven't finished putting everything into my new system, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed until I finish.

    I know you probably don't want to hear this, but I had to tell somebody. I upgraded from a 733mhz w256k to a 2gig w 512k. It is so sick!
