Good memory, yes that was one of my ex ''girlfriends,'' I have gotten rid of her info. You know that type of scam does not interest me. Its always the same story with them. I am getting more hits on my profiles from these types, but I have been ignoring them.
I recently have changed computers, with my son. The one I use now has windows vista, I have been experiencing some problems with it on delphi. When I click on comment box it keep saying in the status bar error on page. Also error when I try to update keywords on pix. I cannot do it, error when I hit spam button and does not work. This is the error details I get when I am on the comment box right now.

I do not know how to fix this and maybe one of you could tell me. I seen others have had this same error problem when I googled it but I found no solutions.
DOC from United States
He was using firefox on this comp then recently installed IE8.

0) Logon as Admin and give yourself elevated privileges, by turning off User Account Control in the Control Panel (It may require a reboot)
1) In IE8 properties, uncheck against it being the defaut browser
2) Set IE8 home page to Http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6
3) Make Firefox the default browser, (use IE8 for updates only)
4) After you successfully install add-ons, plug-ins etc., make sure all your favorite sites in Firefox open without problems.
5) If everything is OK, you could drop your elevated level for firefox, but it is not necessary, since it has good security of its own.
6) Or you can run firefox at elevated level on demand, from a command prompt, RunAs admin, 'C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe'
7) Notice there maybe 2 modes for firefox icons, one of them will make it safe mode with a switch'C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe' -safe-mode (You won't be able do much here, just like running windows in safe mode is only useful for troubleshoot / maintenance
The above is just a try I might do, if I have this kind of problems, but other tries may be needed.
Thanks for your suggestions, I found a fix to my problem, I guess when my son transfered info from one comp to the other something got messed up in ''my favorites'' so when I would click on my favorite threads in delphi the webpages were not working properly. I deleted the ones he transfered and re entered the threads into ''my favorites'', and it is all good now.
I was researching the two scammers I am writing too, I googled one of
their IPs it brought me to my other scammers letters and pix here -> http://www.delphifa..=20#156994 I still did not find match of anything on the other one until I started googling
parts of the letters then I found posts of the letters on Dirks thread, come
to find out this scammer uses the same letters as Ekaterina Epifanova
(email@example.com) the scammer who scammed me used the
surname Epifanova, I will be curious to see what surname I will get
from this scammer. Not Epifanova?? :-D
