I heard through the grapevine that some folks had trouble with their Windows Vista. I have had my lappy for a year and a half now, with nary a problem, so I assumed the "bugs" were worked out BEFORE I got this computer.
Alas and Alack, I assumed WAY TOO SOON.
When lappy saves updates, it does NOT let me know where it saved them, and it does NOT automatically install them.
While I was having that short "fling" with Mr. Marriott, my flash player got uninstalled when I thought it was updating. I also need to download a newer version of my antivirus program. I have tried and tried to do both - - - and the files download just fine, but then they are saved to who knows where, never to be found by the most elaborate of searches, and so they do me absolutely no good.
I thought it was just my own computer illiteracy that was the problem - - - but number one daughter just spent about an hour trying to help me and it is even beyond her prowess. She looked for help online and found that LOTS of other folks are having this exact same problem.
Now what to do ? ? ?
Baby boy came home from college and FIXED all my problems in less than 5 minutes.
Don't I feel foolish!!!!
If you are having Vista download problems - - - search for "downloads" instead of the NAME of the download.
