8/30/2021 8:31:59 PM It contains IMPORTANT programming, database management, and musical work for the past 15 years. I DO NOT WANT IT DESTROYED! I REBUILT and UPGRADED IT MYSELF! EXTREMELY IMPORTANT and I do NOT like putting it ONLINE. It contains the only workign financial program of 20 years of my personal business accounting. I CANNOT LOSE THIS COMPUTER!

3/11/2011 4:29:30 PM I purchased this because i was told it would fix this error message i have been getting ,Everytime i open a webpage i get this message .......Internet explorer had encountered a problem and needs to close.We are sorry for the incovenience. But so far it has not fixed this issue.It is fairly new to me so i have no comment on the fixes other than this one as of right now.

9/3/2010 1:32:48 PM We live in the country and don't yet have access to cable, so we rely on Hughes Net for our internet access. This is an "iffy" proposition at best, and speed depends on how much the computer has been used, download activity, weather conditions, etc.

2/15/2011 8:48:42 PM computer often locks up and will not move in any direction. Other times, the Task Bar will quickly load up and after clicking "close" about two dozen times on each item, it will clear itself, only when it decides to. Other times everything will suddenly clear, and leave the computer with nothing but the "Icons.", like in the beginning upon "start' mode. Strange things can happen to this machine...

12/14/2011 6:09:50 PM This pc was given to me used and I have had a very hard time trying to clean it up enough for it to run for more than a few minutes without issues. There are so many files and probably programs that arent used or needed but I cant seem to successfully remove them. Just need to free up space and repair whatever the previous owner messed up.
