Vista TEST.



Have been trying last night....

Finally got it to work. It appears that Vista's Internet protector mode have to be turned off in order to post blog. I spent hours tweaking the firewall, security and privacy settings and it just happen to be the simplest three words that stares at me every time I use explorer - Protected Mode: On.

NOPE, that does not solve the problem. It only enabled me to post if I typed it in blogger itself. I was trying to cut and paste from MS Word 2007. So at the moment, it looks like MS Word 2007 is the culprit which made blogger lose its connection.

NOPE, actually it appears that after some research, the automatic cookies handling should be disabled and to allow accepting third party cookies.

Test cut & paste from MS Word 2007 - It was the mid-eighties. We were in Maritime Academy Malaysia or ALAM as it is popularly known. A training school for merchant seafarers. We were back in the Academy pursuing a certificate of competency after completing the prerequisite 2 years sea time as cadets on board merchant ships.
Seems to work.
NOPE, now am unable to post photos.


OK, seems to be working fine now. Don't get confused, this is a follow up to the Vista TEST2. Blog works fine, but I am still unable to download Vista updates.
