My old faithful has finally died and I'm struggling with my new confuser. The new confuser did not come with any Windows user information.
Gateway laptop NV series
Windows 7 Home Premium
Acer Aspire 5V
Windows 8 w/touchscreen
How do I determine if I have 8 or 8.1. I cannot seem to find the correct clicks to find the release info.
Is there a way to delete some of the touch screen boxes on the start page? And how do I modify the ones I want to keep?
During the "New Computer Set-Up" routine it always asks for my MICROSOFT email address or my MICROSOFT account information. I have never had a Microsoft account or email account. Is there a way to set up my new confuser without having the Microsoft stuff?
I cannot download and install Firefox for my browser. Is this another way MICROSOFT is trying to punish non-microsoft-believers?
I have tried to download a few small utility apps and each time my new confuser tells me that the download has been interrupted or it simply says it cannot download the file(s). More MICROSOFT crap?
The frustration is mounting. Can you smell the smoke? Thanks.
