    Default Needing New Computer!

    Awens to All:

    Lookks like I am going to have to Bite The Bullet and go out at Shop for a New Computer as the Old Dell PC with Windows XP on it is now having too much Trouble getting Access to some Websites that upon trying to Login gives me a "Sorry, Your Operating System is Out Dated and Can Not Login to this Website".

    Last Night, I was looking at what the London Drugs Computer Department may have as they have a Dell System that is for about $400.00.

    But now I am looking at a Hewlett Packard Computer (London Drugs most common brand) that looks pretty good:

    Not too Pricey but Not Too Cheap so might be Just Right.

    Don't get anything Hewlett Packard HP....all their stuff is rubbish.

    Get a Dell again. They are the best.

    Then I wonder why London Drugs has so many Machines that are HP and not much Dell.



    Guess it is another case of there being Nothing Common about Common Sense.

    Weird name for a company selling computers. Be like PC World selling aspirin.

    BillMC has recommended that I just Download Windows 7.

    I have found that it is now a Free Download:
    https://windows-7-home-premium.en.so.../?ex=DSK-173.1

    Would that require me to back up my Video and Picture Files before doing the Download?

    It's a temporary cheap fix, Windoze 7 is going to go the same way as XP soon if not already, invest in a new machine with Windoze 10, back up what you want to keep to an external drive.

    To the OP - Don't buy a new computer, just stick the old one in your mouth and choke to death.
