Last Wednesday my PC finally decided it was going to completely die on me so I had to send it for repair.
I`m not a happy bunny. Against my request, the tech installed ME instead of 98SE as he claims its really just like 98 3rd edition. He reckons all my 98SE stuff will work on it....
The drives have been altered from C drive which was partitioned to make C and D drive with a separate drive which was E. He has unpartitioned C, [ I just wanted it altering to give more space to C from D ], and has reinstalled my E drive stuff on to it, basically swapping things around which is a mare as it completely ruins the whole notion of minimum data loss in the future because the drives are now screwed up. I could not make him understand which drive was which so he has done his own thing anyway. I have lost all my bookmarks, and many programmes despite his assurance that they would not be lost. I cant get appl quick time to load now as it says a required dll is missing, and goodness knows what other problems I will have as I only got the damned machine back this evening.
Before you say I should have insisted on him doing exactly what I requested, I tried, he would`nt listen, and he kept delaying the return of the thing as it was so I am now stuck with a system I have so far found ugly and clumsy and with most of my programmes gone. He installed AVG antivirus btw, but no forewall - the one I used before was McAffee - it seemed to be ok before, so do you think it will be ok to install on ME ?
Also my popup stopper program refuses to load properly [ Panicware ].
Also, my cd/rw seems to be totally dead as well - any ideas ?
He would not give me an ME disc either so what are my options if I need one ?
It will take me forever to get this thing in to some semblance of what I had before, so please be patient when I keep coming back with more questions which are pointless me asking the tech who worked on the thing as he cant stand listening to questions let alone actually answering them !
