At home I have a Dell XPS 8100 running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 with SP1. I first noticed a problem with rhapsody.com on this computer. When I went to rhapsody.com in any browser (Chrome 26, IE 9 or Firefox 10) and signed in, I saw "Loading" and it just hung there. See attachment. Rhapsody support said they have seen this problem with Comcast subscribers and the only workaround as of that time was to install the Rhapsody client on the computer, which I did, but I don't see how the ISP could affect something like this. Today I tried to activate a BodyBugg Core calorie measurement device at bodymedia.com/start. I entered the activation code from the package and it took me to the registration page where there is a form to enter name, address, birth date etc. and create a user name and password. But two of the drop-downs on that form did not work. The State drop-down did not even appear and the Year drop-down in the Birth date section did not show any years, just the word "Year". The Month and Day drop-downs worked normally. I tried this on all three browsers listed above and they all had the same problem.
Then I used VPN to connect remotely to my computer at work and tried IE 9 and Chrome 26 and found that the State and Year drop-downs both worked. I cannot use that computer to register as the device needs to be connected via USB to the computer you are using to register. I can and probably will take the device to work on Monday and register it there but this issue along with the Rhapsody issue tells me that something is messed up on my home computer. BTW, I am able to sign in to rhapsody.com on my work computer and stream music. It does not have the "Loading" problem either.
In fact I was trying to submit this question on the home computer and the "Select Topics" chooser did not work so I am now submitting it on my work computer. This makes me think there must be some global (that is OS-related) problem on my home computer.
Does anyone know what might be going on?
