Computer Issues Looking Up! March 2, 2009

Though I did not blog this weekend, I did make some headway on the home PC!  I can’t really explain what I did, because I don’t really know.  I do know that I found out that the computer states that my CD-ROM drive is supposed to be an HP DVD drive.  However, I must not have an updated driver or something because it does not actually read DVDs.  Unfortunately, I can’t *get* the update because I still can’t get online.

On that note, I tried my best to not do this, but I did a system restore on the computer.  I was doing this later in the evening, and since it was trying to reset to the middle of January sometime, I do not know for sure if it worked.  What I do know worked, was the Vista DVD in the laptop.  So, after lots of searching around for the McAfee software that is was in the laptop, I got Vista to install.  (Apparently, McAfee and Microsoft don’t get along very well.)  Now, I will go home and figure out how to use it.  Yeay, Technology!

At least now I know I need to take it off the PC before trying to install it there.

 

Edit:  I was WRONG!!!
