  1. Hello, Cinderella: For quite a long time, I have enjoyed However, I recently had to get a new computer and now I cannot get onto the website. I click onto and then, click on the line: "Click here for more royal news". I get a blue screen with no info. I've checked with my antivirus provider and they aren't blocking. I wonder if it could be Microsoft? Have you had anyone else with this problem? Any suggestions? Thank you…Phyllis
