It was acting like virus, so I i did a fresh and killed (Totally overwrote) the mfr installation. I got the disc from craiglist for 15 dollars. At least it removed all names and puffery from the operating system. It worked on two others so seems valid. Even gives key #. Q1: I do not have all drivers. I expected to get on net. Not. Q2 The fresh op sys seems to have gone on c drive. Is that ok? Q3 I guess I could do a conduit usb transfer from freely available online drivers but am afraid to put that on my good computer in case the drivers attack computer 2. Risk? Q4 Are the purchased drivers discs off ebay for 6 dollars satisfactory to put in place? Q5 Should I have tried to install the fresh op system on a seperate partition, does that matter? Q6 All things look good on the display except it states I do not have net connection due to drivers. True of wired and wifi. I hoped that would be automatic, Not. Best I wait till I learn more. My installation disc is good for repeated installations. Appreciate comments, this newbie. .
