I'm totally in agreement with you, Karsten! My 8 year old XP hard drive - albeit in a new case and on a new motherboard - is chugging along just fine.

I'm still using my 2003 Sony XP computer as well. It has Windows 98 on it too. I play all my old games on it. Mad I also use a spare bedroom for my computers.

Congratulations on your new computer, Mad. Glad you're getting it sorted out and hope you enjoy it to the max.

Oh, I LOVE my new machine but I certainly don't love Win7 yet !!
So much of how it works is an absolute mystery to me.

And it is SO "bossy" lol

It doesn't let me do things the way I want to do them - or put things where I want to put them ....
Who OWNS this computer ???? mad

And when I attempt to do things the way IT wants me to, I inevitably find what I've done hasn't worked and I've simply wasted hours yet again hardwall

WinXP seems much more user-friendly and much more logical to me !!
Unfortunately, though, my XP machine is nearly nine years old now and has been upgraded to its limits.
But it's still an absolutely fantastic machine bravo

Mad, it sounds like you are fighting with your Windows 7! You can still put things exactly where you want them - I do it all the time.

As much as I'd love to, I'm afraid it will only be a virtual trip, Jenny!

Sometimes, those are the best ones - a lot less stressful.

Yes. For Draclvr to hold on to her senses I suppose a virtual trip would be best evil

I make a couple of virtual trips half-way across the country every week for computer assistance! What's a little trip across the pond?

We're working our way through some niggling issues. Turns out Mad has the Enterprise version of Windows 7 which is a bit different. I consider this FUN! Plus, like I tell other people, this is how I learn all kinds of new things.
