Roboform internet errors
Posted on 2008-10-25
I've been going round and round with Roboform. The problem doesn't occur often but is a big nuisance when it does.
My original message to Roboform:
I twice tried to get into my anti-virus technical site and got recurring popups saying that the Roboform assertion failed each time. I've recently installed IE8. I had to CTRL/ALT/DEL and stop ieexplore.exe.
A later message to Roboform:
FYI I use both Internet Explorer 8 and Opera. The problem occurs in Explorer 8, but does not occur in Opera.
Their responses always boil down to this:
The fact is that the problem is not related to the Roboform that might be installed on your PC, but to some application that uses a part of old Roboform code (version 4-4-9 and current version is 6-9-91) inside. So we cannot help you to solve the problem reported as we are not the developers of the application that uses our code.
Can someone give me some background on what is going on and hopefully what I can do about it if anything. When the problem appears I CTRL/ALT/DEL and if I really want to get into the site that generated the problem, I open Opera.. Before this problem I never even heard of Roboform.
I honestly do not remember if the prob occurred with IE 7, but I think it did.
