General Drivel.

I have had a few problems with the 'puter. I couldn't instal Windows upgrades, even though all is genuine,(honest).


I contacted Windows and was put through to a very polite and articulate Indian sounding man by the name of Frank Martin,(I kid you not). He ran through a few questions and said it was the AVG free edition I was running that had let some viruses in.

So, after tampering with my computer for 3 hours and me paying £100.00 for 2 years monthly clean up work and check my 'puter is flying! It may sound a lot, but it's put my mind at ease.

Oh, and I couldn't access my blog! After a few minutes checking round the tinternet I found that upgrading to Internet Explorer 9 cured it!

I also enjoyed a delicious Roast lamb and all the veg lunch from the pub! *burp*, pardon me.

Bummer! Well, at least you are now sorted and Frank Martin earned his wages.

I got rid of AVG few moths ago as it did not seem to be helping but just causing trouble and strife.

I got fed up with Microsoft and all it's crashes, hangups, collapsed firewall and leaky antivirus programs so I switched to Linux. I was worried about wiping the hard drive clean and installing a new operating system, but everything works just fine and it doesn't cost anything to download programs or pay for expensive clean-ups.

Phewwww. Isn't that how you feel now? Phew!

I found me a really cool computer guy so these days I don't fret so much. Now I can go worry that he goes on holiday when I need him...argh.
