    Help with internet connection?

    For what it's worth I wasn't able to get it to work and she has taken the computer to a shop to be fixed. Once it's working I'm going to go and install backup software and make a system image of her C:\ drive. Also going to check and see what she is using for malware protection.

    Windows Scaling Question?

    Hi again. Well, I've kind of found a solution, it's not perfect but better than the other things I've tried. What I did is set the App Scaling to a higher number, I started with 110 and worked my way up to 140. As you can see this increased the size of the taskbar and other elements. It's...

    Hi, need help with Dos?

    Yes, I think I'm going to have to log in with another OS if I'm going to get rid of them. I'll have to change the boot order I guess because it won't boot to my Ubuntu DVD. Another thing that's weird must computer I've had will boot to a disk when you get them.

    Hi, need help with Dos?

    Hi I did run Powershell as Admin. I guess the only other thing I could try is to boot into another OS like Ubuntu. All this stuff works on my computer but on her Dell, everything is blocked. It won't boot to a DVD either, so that's the next thing I'll have to look at. Mike
