  1. Very interesting.. Facebook Links would not work with IE ( for a while. So, I tried Chrome and all worked well. Just tried the IE 64 Bit and all is good. Go Figure!

  2. Windows vista my Windows installer keeps getting delete in windows services. How can i stop this from happening and do i just install the windows installer.
