Windows fails to connect to System Event Notification Service

I copied the first bit of the above (Windows fails ETC ETC) to paste in to Google yet the Read more: garbage is added to it. Simple question Why. This is not the first time I have noticed this but put it down as one of the many quirks with this site and a temporary problem. Seems not. Does PCA think this is useful?

Chronus In Firefox with Google as default search engine: I find the quickest way to search google with text from pca is to highlight the text then rightclick and choose 'Search Google for ".... ......" and that doesn't get the Read more link in it.

It makes copying text from a previous post into a new post/reply a bit of a chore, akin to all the red underlined landmines distributed so strategically that you can't just "mouse" from A to B without setting one off!

I don't get those (anymore) hover mouse cursor over one to see the address, it will give you a clue for which .com to block. (this Thread may disappear as did another one on how to block ads)

I think I have an ad Blocker in place because these landmines only open a white rectangle with [Ad] in one corner! Still annoying!

Useful suggestion which also works in IE. Your other link leaves me no the wiser as to PCA reasoning behind this garbage. This should not be a surprise give the spurious reasons given for not allowing forum members to PM or edit a post.

So now it is necessary to play with the Hosts file just to use the PCA forum without yet another niggle.
