    Good to hear Barbara. When I've upgraded to a new PC it's an opportunity to ask myself, "Do I really need that on this flashy new computer. My latest computer has - of course - Windows 10 and only the software programs I tend to use, nothing else. I decided to keep everything personal off it and back this information up on 3 external drives. Why 3? 2 are portable drives and the third is a large capacity memory stick which goes everywhere with me. Call me anal but I've had to deal with far too many irate customers yelling abuse because it was my fault I didn't regularly back up their personal information.

    I have my fingers and toes crossed for you :)

    it was all going so well until I tried to play a CD or DVD and no drivers to do it

    The shop downloaded software and drivers and still wouldn't work so off it goes for repair again for 3rd time since Dec

    Guess I need to get another one soon if this cant be resolved!!!

    I hope you weren't trying to watch Lorimar Dallas. This would be most unsettling. :bh:

    well!! Losing the will - took it back after DVD/CD not recognised, they kept it a week, said it was fixed, got it home and 2 hours later back at a well known retailer in UK as guess what No DVD/CD recognition!!!

    So its away again

    Im kind of hoping they don't fix it as my contract says after 3 times of same complaint, I get my ££££ back that I paid for it, and can chose new!!
