    Can we have the website URL for that competition to see for ourselves.

    You do realise there are plenty of dodgy Microsoft giveaway hoaxes around, so it would be very wise to check out the validity of the competition before entering in any personal details.

    Exclamation Re: $200,00 Microsoft Giveaway

    The Windows vista / office 2007 give-away competition in this months feb 2007 pcworld uses javascript to check form elements that no longer exist. Maybe this is a not so subtle hint that we need to configure a more secure web browser - I managed to submit my entry by making my web browser more secure temporarily. See pages 46-47 of that issue for the details and http://www.pcworld.co.nz/microsoft for comp (magazine purchase required to claim)

    Ah, THAT giveaway. I don't have my Feb issue yet. Safe to assume that website isn't dodgy.

    I see what you mean as I get the same javascript error about missing the address under two different (non-IE) browsers.

    I will drop a message to the powers-that-be.

    It must be dodgy if it is a PC World giveaway

    Get the same thing with Opera. Will give the M$ giveaway what it deserves.. Not using IE just to enter a PCWorld competition

    Keeps asking to fill in my address when it's already filled in
