withing Posted March 1, 2008 Share Posted March 1, 2008 So, this laptop that I bought off of eBay has been pretty good. I like it. Suits my needs, and works just fine. Not much to complain about except one little thing. Nothing downloads correctly! I don't know if it's the wireless card, the computer itself, or what the heck is going on, but it's like having a faulty dial up connection... with a lot of "noise" on the wire that drops the call so I have to start over with nearly every download. I've installed a program that "catches" most of the downloads so that I don't have to start over, but it's still frustrating. Anyway, I'm trying to get this virus software installed. I wanted to have this particular one because I prefer it over others (won't say which one 'cause I don't want to start a "snob" war over software). But, it won't download, and the software I have won't capture it because the the downloading is part of the installation process. So I had the brilliant idea of getting the disc at the store - then I wouldn't need to download it, right? Stupid me. That was the old way of doing things. Everything's downloaded nowadays. I suppose I only need the disc to prove I bought the program. So, now I have a blankity blank disc, and still no program. I went online support and what does it say? "Please enter your product code... which can be found in the 'about' section of the program" If I can't download the freaking program how am I going to access the freaking about section???? AND NOWHERE IN ALL OF THE PAPERWORK IS THERE A GOD DAMNED PHONE NUMBER TO CALL! Yes, I was yelling. I think I might get some sleep and try again in the morning. I just needed to blow of some steam so I won't smash my computer to smithereens or sit her and cry like a baby. I've been at this for about three hours now.
