The past few weeks I have been getting the IPS driver error message when attempting to access the forums. The frequency seems to be about half the time for variable periods of time. I have tried a second computer when this happened and get the same error page.

I have to wait 15 minutes or more before I can access the forums.

I've had the same issues, but don't have any answers. My workaround is that when the url shows: http://www.americasdebate.com/forums/index.php?act=idx, I backspace the address to just show: http://www.americasdebate.com......and I can access the site.

I'll try that. On about three-quarters of the day I'm getting IPS errors.

I never have a problem accessing the Home page. That page is separate from the forums. Accessing the forums is the problem.

I'm getting the same thing. I'm using Chrome v 39.0.2171.95, with Win XP SP3. I wonder if this is yet another of Microsoft's nudges to get users to pay them again to receive the same level of service upgrade to the latest operating systems .

Could be, since XP support was dropped in April of 2014 http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/ent...of-support.aspx

I upgraded when I had to buy a newer desktop for supporting certain applications, and System 7 came with the machine. That's the way I've usually upgraded since the Windows 3.1 days. I do still have an XP machine for backup, but that's going to be changing probably this year.

I've not had any trouble with accessing ad.gif pages of any sort, and I'm running Chrome too, 39.0.2171.99. Had an auto update for S7 yesterday.

Yes, MS does these tricks to make money. It's part of the business model, and it's nothing new. Same thing was pulled by IBM in the mainframe era, but pressure from clients kept support for old OS's around quite a bit longer. I suppose if it's a problem, you could switch to open systems OS and apps. I've stuck with MS due to gig requirements, plus it's just better than open systems OS's I've tried. That is of course a subjective judgment. Other people really like Linux and other Unix-based systems for the desktop. I'm a fan of Solaris for production servers.

PE tends to type in the entire URL and routinely gets directed to the Forums and the IPS Driver Error of late.

I have a link in my Yahoo Toolbar that routinely takes me directly to the Home page with no errors.


I routinely use Windowa Explorer as a first option, FireFox as a fall back, and I have Chrome installed... (I rarely find the need to allow Google to add to my SPAM overload.) I rely on the same toolbars and links on all three programs and the three computers that we are currently using. Ergo, I can't fault the software...

I have clicked on the Forums link at the top of the web pages and been redirected immediately to the IPS Driver Error. It locks our computers up and forces a power recycle on all 3 browsers on all 3 computers including the Windows Ate System on the Laptop with the 64 bit processor and most current versions of all the browsers.

I would have to contend that there is an intermittent problem with the URL for the Forums Page; as the Home Page can be routinely accessed at any time.

The best short term solution that I can recommend as indicidual users is to find your way to the Home Page, copy the URL and Paste it to a toolbar or to an icon in your Windows desktop.

If you're having this problem with a LINUX or APPLE operating system; look to someone else for advice. I have had very limited experience with any system except Windows since before it was first released to the public. I was trying to help a friend edit a WORD document yesterday; and I found it necessary to have her attach it to an eMail and download the file from the eMail. When I tried to save the file to my Flash Drive directly from her Apple computer, the only thing that was copied was the shortcut address. We edited it on my computer, saved it, and then tried to print it. I started a search to see where it was saved to; but it was faster to transcribe the entire document and eMail her the edited file.
