Want to thank all of the helpers on this side of the XP. I had a few problems & was helped one way or the other. Even though I have moved on to Windows 7 pro, from XP Pro, I am told that I still have XP, because I installed over it & didn't re-format the disk?
In the case that I would need to re address problems that may haunt me, though I am on Win 7; hope I could get problems solved?
I must say, XP was nice. I wasn't going to do vista. Dell sould me in 2007 a special machine that had xp loaded on it. I had emailed them & expressed interest in purchasing a laptop with xp instead of vista. They were giving the run around about how I would have to buy it with vista & then reload with xp. I was looking elsewhere, with no luck. I emailed Dell that I was going to switch to Mac. I got an email back a few days later, about these "special" xp machines: Inspiron 1520.
Now that I have Macs too, I couldn't get onto iCloud in the XP operating system. Though Tigerdirect was selling Win 8 at $34.00, I decided that Win 7 Pro at $134.00 was woth the price to eliminate the headaches.
