Hello All.
I took my old computer which has Windown XP, back to factory as it was chocker block and worked very slowly.
Now I have problems like, my sound has gone?? and it wont accept my sound driver?
It tells me my browser is very old but I cant download Google Chrome (which was on it before) it comes up with an error code.
And it wont let me put my McAffe back on as it says my browser is out of date??
Any help will be much appreciated.

Also, if you're not quite ready to update windows and such yet, then you can just update Internet Explorer to an acceptable version to download you're browser of choice, then use said browser to download others, ie virus protection, then hit the windows/microsoft update button and do a custom update, include all important/recommended updates, look through optional updates and hardware updates for things like drivers and their updates and fixes. This is the way I get back up and running after an unexpected full reinstall, but I try my best to keep installers around for the very important drivers, updates and other programs, like my browser, yes it has to connect and download the actual files, they aren't included in the install exe, but at least I know that if I have an internet connection (I also keep the drivers disk for my wifi card very handy) I can get my preferred browser up and running right away.

Hope this was helpful, if not this time then maybe next time, and goodluck. :)
