My computer was slowing down so much that I reloaded everything a lil while back and ever since, my lil smilies won't work.  The only one I can do is by typing colon/ end parenthesis like this one :)

I'm sure it is my old Windows XP since it won't update anymore since Windows stopped service on it about a month or so ago.  I can't even get the service pack 2 which it says I'm missing to download.  How can I over ride them to type them in manually?

 :laughing4: you could type them in manually if you need to.

now i don't know if this is true or not but i think windows is not discontinuing support to windows xp until April 8, 2014. should still be able to update it.

It's a secret...

Just use the "forum code" setting, copy and paste it.  DON'T use the "insert image" button on THIS board - just paste 'em whole, and the magic of the interwebz will do the rest!
