Was ... back in business. Computer ran well for a day and then died completely. It's been sent off to the service folks to see if they can salvage it, or if I need to buy a new one. *sighs*

Sorry to learn of that...

Let's hope the device you end up with after this, will be more reliable.

I can't decide if the computer is crap or if I just got a nasty, nasty virus. I had my old computer (the one I am on now) for over 7 years with no issues and only bought the new one to downsize because this thing is an enormous dinosaur that I hated packing around.

I had the new one for just over a year and it packed it in. Grr
