Thanks Steve. Resetting doesn't help. Pages render well in FF7, but print garbage from IE9.

Could the BSoD error also be due to the video? I don't expect video memory to have parity check. OTOH, it would explain why MemTest86+ didn't find errors.

comment IE9 reliability issues
Thanks. The PC is somewhat old and I only found a video driver for Vista. Could this have to do with it? Also, since other programs work well, is this an IE9 or a driver problem?

comment Mean Time to Failure (MTTF): When disk manufacturers post this, how should you interpret their numbers?
@Kaitlyn - I guess you're referring to bad sectors. I'd say a disk failure is when you can't read from or write to the drive any longer. Usually a mechanical error, like a head crash. This usually happens when you still have plenty of good sectors left.

About quality and resolution: quality is mostly dependent on the lens quality. I learned this when I was used to working with good quality lenses on a 35mm camera, and switched to Hasselblad. Wow! The kind of detail that gives you! And no, that's not just because it has a higher resolution. It's the lens. Never used my 3K worth of 35mm gear anymore.

Gee Russell, I still always find your answers so difficult to read! Have you ever tried to create real hyperlinks? It's as simple as link text between square brackets, followed by link in parentheses. Readability will be much better.

comment Mysterious folder on hard disk
Why do you say "in set of pairs"? That would be typical of text coding, but this doesn't look like it - not ASCII anyway.
