I just went through another round of glitches, this time with the laptop I purchased last December. The only good news about that — it’s still under warranty.
So anyway, all these glitches and snafus culminated in a blue screen with a message about my boot process — it was missing or corrupted.
How in the world does this happen? Did it have anything to do with my upgrade to Windows 10? Did I have a messed up program or app that brought down the system? What, I yell to an audience of zero, the hell is going on with my computers?????
So anyway, I calmed down and called the computer tech who tried to walk me through some recovery processes. They did not work. So the company sent me a flash drive to use to bring my computer back to its pristine Windows 8.1 state. It took a really, really long time and then more really, really long times to re-install Microsoft Office, add virus protection, download and install all the hanging software updates, and then put back a couple of the files I needed.
And now I’m receiving the little nagging messages to upgrade to Windows 10 again. Should I? Should I not?
Oh, heck. I’m an adventurous soul. And after all, Windows 10 is now working just fine on my desktop.
I’m gonna do it. Tonight. Yep a rootie! Jump right in there and see what happens.
And if anything else goes wrong with either one of these computers, I am going to get rid of the gremlins once and for all.
With a hammer.
