I hope you get it figured out.
I am trying again, with the laptop. Hope this posts.
Yea!! it works.
I certainly have sympathy... I'm sitting here surrounded by my new Ipad which I haven't mastered yet (will I ever?), a laptop that I've forgotten if we have a external CD burner... it's the one that has all my recent photos on .... and my old standby Dell that I know how to use but need to transfer all recent activity. ARG! Sometimes I hate my computer... sometimes I'm sure it hates me. Good Luck!
An external CD burner/player is a great way to save and view pictures. Lately, I have been using SD chips to save pictures. I can take them out of the camera and plug them directly into my laptop for instant viewing or transferring, and just buy another one when the last one fills up. They are not too expensive.
Maybe (grin), but I am going to blame it on the internet. I finally ran a full computer scan. Seems to be working OK now.
I use malwarebytes regularly. it's free and guards against lots of stuff.
I did a complete scan and got rid of a couple of unwanted files. Works OK now.
After one finger typing for three weeks, and STILL having two returned computers being billed on my charge card, I got my old pc fixed...I think.
Just like finding an old friend. Hope it stays "fixed".
I hate PC problems! I think everyone does...
Maybe someday I will gather up all my old computers, set them up against a tree and use them as target practice. Now wouldn't that feel good!!!
