    Suffice to say, there are literally hundreds of things that cause IE to misbehave! Over the years I've had to force myself to become a computer nerd, (not that I wasn't already) and learn how to...

    When I was still using IE8/XP Pro it would often go berserk for me. I tried about everything you have done, with no improvement. I also hate to do Repair installs as I usually end up with some kind...

    Joedob is correct: Linux is looking SO much better! Windows is like the 'all NEW and improved' car models: cosmetic changes are now called "NEW"! In reality, nothing is really that new. And when you...
  8. New ways to get free Windows-installation media

    |Like others here, I bought a 'refurbished' OEM laptop, with Win 8.0 installed. I went ahead and upgraded to 8.1. This unit came with a disclaimer that the Restore partition had been deleted, to...
