Can't add media - Leaving protection mode.

  1. Ssudden when I try and add media I get a notice I'm going out of protection mode and asks if I want to procede. However it freezes my computer and I have to close the internet browser down. This never happened before. Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is ladykaren330.wordpress.com.

  2. Did you try clearing your browser cache?

  3. What do you mean by "protection mode"?
    If it's a browser add-on or extension then disable it.

    Exactly which browser and version of it are you using please?

  4. I'm using IE 9. There is a popup box that says that I'm leaving protected mode. There is a reference to starlight microsoft, i think is the name. It does have a box to click if I don't want it to pop up again but I can't click it because when the pop up comes up everything freezes and I need to close out using the task managaer.

  5. Okay, never mind. I just did it again to try and screen capture it and for some reason it allowed me to check do not show this again. The only explanation I have is that the darn computer knew I asked the question and wanted me to look stupid. Thanks for your time.

  6. It's good to know this has been resolved. Thanks so much for letting us know it's not longer an issue. Best wishes with your blog. :)
