Why are computer changes never easy?
It was time to change to my new laptop even though I still hate Windows 8. The old one was just behaving more and more erratic now, sometimes it just opened up completely black but showing the internet Connection icon clearly but it is hard to surf the internet if I can’t open up it at all 🙂 sometimes it just refused to shut down or if it did something Went wrong and I had to restart it in safe mode or what ever it’s called. So I thought to myself that today is the day I’ll make the change.
The big problem is that I have all my photographs in the old computer so I still need to use the old one to put them in to the blog, shut the old one down and open up the new one so I can write the text 🙂 I also have no photo editing program in the new one but I found a good one on the net a few days ago that I’ll download to this one. I just want to be able to reduce the size of my photographs and perhaps sharpen them up some too because I rarely do anything else to them. I still don’t fully understand this program but give me a few Days and I Think it’ll work fine.
The big problem however was that I wanted to bring my old anti-virus program with me and couldn’t find the license number. So I called my internet Company and got it via the text message on my internet Connection within seconds but they told me I had to uninstall it on my old computer via their website Before I downloaded it on the new one. So I did that and when I downloaded it on the new one I got a message that I already had this on my other computer but I could switch to the new one if I liked to! So why did I need to uninstall it at all on the old one ??? Anyway, that was not the big problem.
The big problem came when I was downloading the anti-virus protection because McAfee was already in the new one. Should be no problem at all really, just uninstall it and continue 🙂 For some reason McAfee didn’t want to be uninstalled at all, it should have worked without me having to interfere at all but that didn’t work so I had to do it manually. I tried ten times and the only thing that happened was that I got a message saying the Connection to McAfee’s website broke down?! Why should I go there at all? My internet Company was as much help as a dead rat, they can only help if there’s something wrong with the Connection and I think if the connection breaks down while doing something it should be their concern but oh no 🙂
So I just shut down and restarted the computer and tried again and then the computer told me that something Went wrong the last time and that I didn’t have McAfee any longer, would I like to remove the name on the uninstall program? 🙂 Computers! They can be so fun and sometimes I just hate them 🙂 Now I’ll try to find that photo editing program again so I can download it to this laptop. I still have a few photographs in my camera that needs to be taken care of. But first I’ll start a fire in the stove, make a pot of tea and something to eat. Must remember to send that photo I have that is going to be my Yule card before it is too late. It’s in my old computer I’m afraid.
Have a great day!
