Question about Computers & Internet
The createDDSoffscreenerror is unique to IE8 or IE9, it is preventing the viewing of my web cameras via IE. To clear the problem I have to close program through task manager then the cameras display. This is not a problem in mozilla or chrome, however, those 2 browsers don't provide enough applets to work with. Additionally, this problem is only appearing on 2 of my computers, others are working just fine. I've attempted to compare all internet options setting to match them up to those that are working but still no success.
