Friday Fangles

Today’s “Fangle” is not something that’s really new to me, but it is something that’s new to my computer!

Several weeks ago, I purchased a used system to replace my deceased pc.  The system I got had Windows Vista – which I had never used before.

I gave Vista a shot.  Honest I did.  For two whole weeks.  And it seemed to be going fine.  I wasn’t in love with it, but it didn’t have issues, either.  Until two days ago.

I lost access to my files.  Windows Explorer would not launch.  Windows Security could not open.

In other words, things started to go horribly awry.  And, although I found a few ways to get around the issues, they are more time consuming and frustrating that I’d like.

Vista is going to be history.  I’m moving to Windows 7 again- which I had on my older system.

Tonight, I’ll back things up, re-format the hard drive and start installing the  “new” operating system.  Depending on how long that takes, it may only be tomorrow afternoon when I get everything back to where I want it to be.

But, the weatherman is calling for lots of snow and the Ogre has the weekend off!  We’ll be spending it together at home.

And that’s sort of a new thing, too!  At least, it is in this house.

I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have.  I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).

Thanks for stopping by.
