I have decided my slowing laptop is due to Windows Explorer malfunction. It keeps saying 'Not Responding' when I try to do things like empty the recycle bin or access Control Panel. I have found some free software to download which claims to fix the problem but I am wary to download in case its malware or something. It's from SpeedMaxPC. What should I do? I'm running on Vista.

The Microsoft help page was useless for techno amish like me.

Eeep!

I now have a wide screen monitor so everything is in Cinemascope™. It makes icons look fat *pout*. I suppose I'll get used to it.

This came about because when I fired up the old pc this morning the monitor was DED. Must have expired overnight. Fortunately our local computer shop had a 17" flatscreen in so I reserved it by phone and dispatched Pat this afternoon to pick it up. And here it is.

I hope David doesn't look fat tomorrow.

Well I'm on the big machine but it's not quite right yet. I've obviously done something silly while trying to sort out the Internet and it just feels I'm not in control. Bookmarks went and haven't reappeared - yet, hopefully. I'm posting manually to Insane journal as well though there is far too much spam for me to cope with over there until things settle down. Still, it's quite jolly in some respects. I might meet new friends and I've got some cuddly already friends there from here. Now if I was only technologically enabled I could post this there too.

Anyway:

There are still miceys. This means death is the only way. Gulp. It's all right letting them out into the garden but the critters have either got an escape route in reverse back into the flat or there's hordes of them. They also crap themselves too much in the humane trap. Yuck!



I'm HD capable now and while there aren't many HD channels at the moment it is very good quality viewing.

5 hours I've been at it and finally I've had to give up and get the laptop out and install my internet connection on here to get on-line. I will have to re-install aol on my pc tomorrow now to get back all my bookmarks etc. Is blind apart from friends page. Sunderland lost of course - an offside goal and 2 penalties. Black day all round then.
