    Re: Windows 10 Problem

    Don, I've had so many problems with Windows 10 that I copied all my photos, all my documents and them dumped windows 10. I re-installed windows 8.1 and have had zero problems since. I also have anti virus programs installed plus Advance System Care Pro. My Linux computer never has any of these Windows problems!
    To answer your question, if you have a licensed version of W-10, yes you can re-install it, but if you don't clean the virus out of the computer, chances are it will still be in there somewhere. When I took W-10 out of mine, I saved what I wanted to an external HD and then formatted the SSHD before installing 8.1. I have no problem with 8.1, some don't like it, but W-10 takes over the computer and is too controlling for me, I definitely don't like it! PJ

    Forgot to mention, have you tried AVAST free anti-virus, it's a nice program and works well.

    I gave up Windows back around 2011 and bought an iMac (Now on my second one). Never looked back. The iMac isn't without it's issues, but nowhere near the headaches I used to experience with my PC.

    Re: Windows 10 Problem

    If I could get drivers for this Toshiba Laptop to do it, it would be XP this afternoon.

    STILL all the desktops use XP, STILL work, STILL access what I need to access.

    Don't use any Eve handing to Adam stuff, either. (apple for the slow USAF types.....!)

    I got a friend who keeps pestering me to change this 8.1 to 10. I can't put in print what I tell him, as Bas would have a stroke.

    Windoze lost me as a paying customer with WGA. I use it, but it's all either in place or given to me.

    In fact, same friend is sending me an XP Pro laptop. Free. No money to Microslime.

    And no, I won't tell you what I really think.

    Pretty sure the original post had nothing to do with actual literal windows software.

    Hint #1 - there is another virus present

    Hint #2 - It might have been better posted in the humour section.



    PS It's hilarious.

    Since when do Pub threads stay on topic? We could start a thread about the Sistine Chapel and after a few posts it would be a thread about Kittens...a few posts later we would be talking about serial killers

    We haven't had a cat for over 20 years now but I still can identify with that as if it was yesterday.
