Yet the Geek Squad pro who is coming to hook up HD cable to my new 40" HDTV upstairs is also going to look things over on this PC getting online.

I did call before and the Call Tech guy did some checking on my router/modem and found a few things there that he fixed.

My problem was the time lag between one click to the action. As these screens would pop up saying I was off line and needed to fill in this and do that.
F' en M$....... But hey the Cox Geek guy just called and is on his way here, so in time I will have Cable TV & him looking at this problem.

BTW FS

I have to go.........
Seriously though, get that Vista crap off your PC. My wife has it and she has nothing but trouble. I've gotta talk to our Support dept. about getting a copy of Win 7 to upgrade her machine with, but I keep forgetting to stop by do the appropriate amount of butt-kissing needed.

Well the Cable guy and I agree even after he installed a new Modem, this PC is shot..

Now my problem is getting a Win7.... It took about 13 minutes to get this far.
So I am going upstairs to enjoy the couch & HDTV.

Tomorrow I will see if I can find a Win7 and if not then it is good bye as I won't have any M$ 8/8.1.

So till they make a better product or I find a Win7 this is my last post.

My machine is running on Widows Vista/Firefox/MSE/SuperAntiSpyware-- get regular updates from Windows.

Only problem I've had is when I've had crap like Yahoo mail and messenger on here.
Since I dumped all things Yahoo, it runs smooth.

Another tip would be to close out Spyware while you are on a forum. It tends to slow it way down.
Nothing wrong with Vista IMO as long as you keep your programs as things that are necessary.
HP computer here. p6110f. 6.00 GB 64-bit.

I just bought my daughter a laptop with windows 8. Some say windows 7 better but she says it's ok, just takes getting used to. You can take it on the go and charge cell phones off the laptop battery but maybe that's nothing new. Take care.

Lurpy, I am in the same situation right now. My old xp machine died and the best I have found is Tiger direct. Will be ordering one today as these laptops drive me nuts.

Sense I already went ahead and got this monster M$8, I have to live & learn. Half the crap cost $ the other is free. Yet the good stuff costs.

I was looking at the GET STARTED WITH 8 and there are 7 videos & 59 things to read.

so it is off to school for me soon.
