After the traumas and expense of the mid-April laptop debacle, MS has done it again. Yesterday morning Lappyy was on strike again. Updates had caused it to crash. A couple of hours work and I had managed to restore some semblance of function, but the screen was full of hundreds of unwanted apps, games and 4 separate anti-virus programmes. But didn’t include MS Office and my paid-for AVG anti-virus. Hours of uninstalling followed, as Lappy was on a go-slow from eating too much.
I managed to write a poem on the vestigeal system of word processing that was the only option, then tried to print it. Bingo, Lappy died again. Old lappy to the rescue, but the same problems as caused me to buy new Lappy last year persist.
At least I had had the good sense to back up last month’s work.
So it’s off to see the SYM (Splendid Young Man) again, though I bet he tries to hide when he sees me come through the door!
