    Vista was terrible, cheese. All sorts of problems.
    True - but it was better than W8. What is your opinion of W10?

    It seems alright. What is your opinion of the ZX81? I found the ram packs would work loose and all the code you typed in would head skywards to meet the spiritus mundi.

    Preferred the Commodore 64 - but it took ages to boot.

    For a couple of years, my Old Computer always did a Big Beep upon Booting Up and the Message 'Processor Fan Not Detected'. I figured that might be the reason why my Old Computer started doing Suddenly Serious Error Crashes last May.

    So I found an Old Dead Computer in the Dumpster and it still had a Processor Fan in it. So I grabbed it and Sunday Morning, I put the Used Processor Fan into my Old Computer after it did one of its Sudden Crashes.

    I found that the Processor Heat Sinks were So Hot that you could Cook An Egg on it! So I concluded that it was because of the Processor getting Overheated that was causing it to Crash.

    So I put in the Replacement Processor Fan and after Booting Up, did not do the 'Processor Fan Not Detected' Message anymore and the New Fan Whirred Away fine.

    But after a couple of Hours, the Computer once again did its Sudden Crash again.

    So I guess it is back to Plan A of shopping around for another New Computer with Windows 10 on it.

    Of course, last years November, I got a Replacement 190 Gig Hard Drive. Maybe its Servo Motors is drawing Too Much Power from the Processor Circuit Board.

    I do have that External Hard Drive now so I wonder if the Sudden Crashes were to Stop if I disconnect the Replacement Hard Drive and just go with the External Hard Drive.

    You need to put a special paste on the part of the heatsink that goes on to the processor!

    Very little will work with Windows XP these days, because it is obsolete - and a security risk.
    There is a fix that can still access Microsoft support for XP. So many organisations (Like the Police and NHS) still actually use it. I've got a little Atom Processor Netbook that runs XP and still gets updates. It is pointless now though...
