I have been experiencing several issues lately, from not being able to use attachments with Outlook, (issue has fixed itself now, not sure how)
to the issue I am experiencing now. I have just upgraded to Windows 8.1 and IE 11, and now I am having issues with Google's Gmail taking forever to load. It does eventually, but takes a few minutes to load completely. I have checked the Compatibility View Mode information, and it does not make a difference if I use Compatibility Mode or not. I have read some posts today regarding some users having problems like mine, and it suggests that you check or Manage your Add Ons. I have come to realize that Microsoft Silverlight is not compatible with Windows 8.1 and IE 11 for some reason and since uninstalled Silverlight altogether. I have tried another Browser, Google Chrome to see if my Gmail loads correctly, and it does not. It functions the same way as with IE 11. I wanted to be able to go back to my previous OS Windows 8, however, I have researched that topic and apparently you cannot go back. I do not have any other Add Ons so I am not sure what is causing the issue with Gmail being so slow to load. It operated fine yesterday until I upgraded to Windows 8.1. Quite frankly, I wish I hadn't upgraded and now I cannot do anything about it. I am not impressed with the new Windows 8.1 whatsoever, and actually didn't have a problem with Windows 8 not having a Start Button. It was not that hard to operate, all you had to do was hover over the bottom left hand side of the screen to get to the Desktop. I guess I was one of the few people that actually did not mind that Windows 8 didn't have a Start Button. Anyway, what else can I do now that I have upgraded to ensure my Gmail is functioning properly and also solve the Microsoft Silverlight problem?? Do I really need the Microsoft Silverlight and is there any update on the bugs known with Windows 8.1?
