Having issues, yet again, with computers.
First, printer problems.
In an effort to fix those, after much rebooting and gnashing of teeth (and other technical stuff), I ‘got rid’ of programs I thought might be gumming up the works, by restarting my computer.
The reconfigured, updated machine seemed very slick! But then, the ghost in the machine appeared.
I was (and am) unable to access the INTERNET via my PC. I called the ‘tech support’ number provided, and believe it to be a spam site trying to extort funds from me to get my computer back!
They said I owed money for the FREE Windows 10 upgrade I did a month or more ago!
And kept pressuring me, in an East Indian accent! (Not that all help desk folks with that accent are crooked!)
SO, here I am doing my blog post from my cheap, PRC tablet.
And I don’t know how long (or if) I’ve the technical expertise – or patience – to update my quote, funny and video. 😢
And if Microsoft is indeed extorting funds, I’ve no way to pay them.
(This just in – after running limited diagnostics, and system restore, I seem to be ‘back’. Yes, some programs are now gone from the reconfigure, but the spam (or MS extortion attempts) seem to have abated!)
