so before I go on to mention all the little things that have been going nuts with the pc, I will confess I did a bit of uninstalling the first day I got it, I only used the windows uninstalling program, and all uninstallations went without a problem, I unstalled things that seemed to have come "factory", like microsoft word, wich I do NOT use, never have used and never will use, anywho. I would also like to say that I have come here before (and I love this place (especially Essexboy)) so i did kinda learn a bit, one of the first things i did aside form uninstalling HP factory junk, was tried to update windows (since this pc must not have been online for over 2 years).
ok so first thing
- Pc sometimes crashes, mostly when trying to update windows/microsft or IE updates
-firefox wouldnt not install, finaly installed, worked fine, after reboot or pc crash firefox didint even to seem to be installed, I installed again and now it takes 5 min for firefox to start and it CAN NOT connect to the internet.
- (im not sure if everyone is familiar with netflix, but its a company that lets you watch movies online if you have a legit wondows or they mail them to you) When watching a movie on net flix, some type of IE error window comes up and IE crashes.
-i tried to install comodo firewall and pc would not let me according to some issue having to do with windows not updated? I tried to update up to Win pacakge 2(?)and I think i got it done.
- ( I am a dork I play online games ) silkroadonline will not install on my pc, error window saying the file is corrupt comes up, which I know there is nothing wrong witht the file since I tried it on another pc.
I cant think of anything else atm... did I do wrong trying to uninstall stuff? if so I want to ask can I get rid of all this HP junk ? I dont like it, and I dont use it, it bothers me, this pc had msn and aol (wich never! seems to go away!) and a ton of HP software I will never use.
I am almost certain its not a malware or adware type of problem, so I didint know where to post, I apologize if I am posting in the wrong place. I dont know what else to say or post.
thnx in advace G2G ^^
also forgot to mention the friend who let me borrow this pc did not bring me "the" disks.
