I just wanted to scream and throw this computer out the window. I tried just a simple procedure that turned into a nightmare..... technology is supposed to make life asier when it works that is? Any other frustrated computer users out there?
Yep, I run into computer problems all the time. Right now, my speakers don't work and I have no idea why. All the places I've gone to try to correct the problem haven't given me user-friendly solutions. I followed the steps to "put volume control icon on desktop" and etc. and etc., and it put it there but it still didn't WORK, so that was useless. So....I totally understand anyone's frustration with these things we call computers, 'cause they're certainly not user-friendly for THIS user! haha.

I just wanted to scream.

Nope-- I've had mine for several years and been very happy with it.
This would show there are some good computers out there and some bad ones. Usually, it's a matter of getting what you paid for.
Other times, it could be viruses that were unwittingly downloaded.
No actually...I love my computers and never have any problems with them that I can't easily resolve.
A lot of the problems with computers are related to outdated operating systems and cheap hardware; slow processors; slow network interface cards; lack of maintenance including things like defragmenting the hard-drive, disk clean-ups, clearing search histories, cookies, etc.
Well it was a Library computer so who knows how often they clean the hard drive etc...
