I have a problem with auto updates having downloaded IE8 and for some reason (already had it) and now the file is corrupted and can’t uninstall.
Sent the whole system wobbly for a while but did a restore and all back and working except my passport essential have a lot of photos and work files I want to keep and went to check it to see if okay if the worst happened and need to do a full recovery on the computer etc and it was fine then suddenly in retrieval area it died on me and back to home and nothing there any more.
Lost most of my restore also and only thing there was a Revo uninstaller point which worked anyway. Weird goings on…Spooky music plays.:smiley’s-happy:
I have checked and have 424 days left on warranty. It is a USB 2. And I am not sure if my ports are good for it - rated 500 a or something when I checked - so may not be fast enough as read here on a thread to help out but very technical.
Rang the retailer they said to take it in and they will check it out and may need to go back but then I may lose my data. He also told me M$ does mystrious things like sneaking in updates even when you said no and hid them as I did IE8
Does it come with a disc - kept the box but not any disc in it. Must have had some way.
Looking on My computer it shows up there and devices show working but it is not. Not sure if USB is a device or a port and how to check them out.
Computer is a Dell Inspiron 530.
Any help appreciated and I am not very tech minded but can follow step by step if the person remembers some of us are still learning our way around the computer because it was invented after we left college.
Like I am no tsure if my USB’s are ports or devices on the device manager but checked the lot by clicking on properties and all working. So not that as must have hit the right spot eh!
