Re: Jaws acting very strange!

My computer came with IE9 installed as default so I had to reinstall IE8 to work with Jaws 11. I'm not having any problem except with the I'm feeling lucky button.
The more annoying problems are with the alt tabbing and the ctrl arrow keys and the subject line and contact fields.

Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) by default is 32 bit, you have to hunt around in the Windows start menu to get to the 64 bit version of IE, so you are probably not using it.

Jaws11 just plain does not work well with Windows 7 64 bit on some systems.

You only hope is probably to wait to upgrade to Jaws13. Sorry!

You may wish to consider re-installing Jaws11 as a last resort, but that is not very likely to solve any problem

In general there are few, if any, performance benefits from using 64 bit applications in and of themselves. The main benefit to 64 bit, given the current Microsoft architecture, is that you can use more than 4GB of RAM (memory). This is useful if you certain resource-intensive applications, such as graphics programs, database applications, etc., or are a developer.

Please note that the "Home Basic" version of Windows 7 64 bit only supports up to 8GB RAM, to use more you need "Home Premium" or to go over 16GB, any of "Professional", "Ultimate", or "Enterprise" versions.

I've not installed anything from windows recently. I'm on a laptop and I'm
not quite sure how to change resolution. I'm not sure if I have IE for 32 or
64 bit, didn't know there was more than one although if it did ask me I
would've chosen 64.
I'm trying to get Jaws 13, but it's probably not going to be for a while.
This laptop is new as of Christmas and I haven't changed the hardware at
