Computer Problems

Last Saturday, I was thrilled to get my computer back! I had been without it for five weeks, and without my files, and my ability to insert my SD Card into it so that I could download pics off my camera.

My joy was short lived.

I am again having computer problems and can't even get logged online. UGH!!!

I am calling my friend tomorrow and see if her husband can work on it again. This last time, the computer was down because the power source went out. I am not sure if he checked it for viruses and such. He fixed my computer free of charge so I can't complain.

So for now, no Pink Saturday. I was going to post for Tablescape Thursday as I put together an adorable tablescape that I love, but NOOOO! Wednesday is when my computer decided to sprout devil horns and refuse to cooperate with me.

In the meantime, I am using my son's ancient laptop and I can only download pics by a CD disc, This costs me $2.50 every time I take my SD Card to Walmart, so I am not a happy camper, and this limits me. Anyhow, I am going to a fun event tomorrow where I plan to take a LOT of pics (if the camera cooperates, but that's another story), and hopefully will put those on disc and post on it in the next few days.

Computers...can't live with them and can't live without them!

bless your heart.i know EXACTLY how you puter is a little over a yr old,a vista.i had wifi installed for speed.dial up was a joke and so was another "supposedly"faster company.
no problems EVER.super speed.BAM,you were there.
well honey,"if it ain't broke,don't fix it."
i heard on tv,the 3 for 1,cable and super sonic internet at a set price.
i talked to this lady until i knew how many children she had,what size bra she wore.(not really but a long time).
i made her promise you are just as fast as wifi.yes,maam,i promise you.
and the virus protection was free.FREE-----------------
okay,we switched.the phone bill has NEVER,been what she said it would be.she promised it would never be over,bla bla.
the cable goes off when it even clouds up.I AM SERIOUS.
THAT I CAN ALL LIVE internet,i saw no signs of protection.i called.oh yes maam,you are protected it is,i can'rememever this sec,but a good co.
my puter started dancing and jumping.i called again.ok...i called AGAIN.THIS TIME I GOT A GUY.
he said "no you have to go to this address and download but it's free".grrrrrrrrrr
ok,i go to that address,it's not free.i fought and fought,but at this point my puter was in such bad shape i couldn't even get it to download.just enough to take my money.
my dh and i restored it,but not to the point of losing my pics.long enough to download mcafee.i think it's the best.the other company.$75.00 wouldn't give me my money back.
now--my puter is as slow,maybe slower than dial phone bill is at least $100.00 a month higher.cable sucks.
all this in the name of saving money.i cannot go back to fiwi yet,their installation is at least $150.00 for the antenna.we live in the the instaltion in the house.
but i think my puter is forever damaged from the virus it picked up.
so i knoe exactly how you feel.and this is one of our TOP COMPANYS.not a fly by nite one.what ever happened to honesty?
