If you downloaded and installed the lessons, they work direct. But if
you didn't install them, they will work over the internet. I have
installed the lessons on all of our machines, so I don't really know.
My home computer with WinXP was updated with SP2 today, and I could not
get the census images from Ancestry.com (at least for the 1920 census).
I even turned off the new Windows Firewall that was installed with SP2
and it didn't help I did not see a way to turn off the virus checker
that was installed also with SP2. On advice from my computer expert, I
uninstalled SP2 and my access to images started working normally. My
computer expert also stated that "many" programs will not work with SP2
because of the security holes in their programming. His advice--don't
install SP2 until the software you use has the bugs worked out (as PAF
Insight/Ohana Software has done).
