I,m not very techy but it sounds to me like your processor is'nt fast enough to cope with the flash7.

It,s the same thing really.....lol The faster the processor the speedier the puter sorts out all the data........or something like that!

hehehehe Don't worry too much if your processor is too slow for the new RootsChatterBox - we may well end up changing it within a few weeks to something a bit more relaxed- we're still tinkering with it - but it does work very well for people with newer computers.

Ooh err, I don't like the sound of the chatterbox only being available to newer 'puters. I'm at big bruvver's so it works great; At home the thing's at least six years old- I'm not holding out much hope as it struggles even to load the big census files.

Pauline,

I'ts not a requirement to have a super-dooper-new-computer to use the RootsChatterBox, but the chances are a newer computer will have the latest browser loaded on it. The trick really (even with an old computer) is to use "Windows Update" to keep everything up to date, or visit the Microsoft site www.microsoft.com and check for any updates for one's computer.

The computer that I do most of my day-to-day work on is about four years old, (bought at a computer fair for £80. I bought it as a test machine, but because it is very small it's really handy for me.) I don't run Microsoft Windows, (I run SUSE Linux www.SUsE.de/en ) and the ChatterBox works great on this old machine.

Sarah on the other hand has a brand-new really fast computer, that uses Windows XP. The ChatterBox works fine with that too.
