I had posted this topic earlier this week about whether to purchase this used laptop. It seems it jumps or hangs when on the internet and possible other programs.

 

I need to run virus scans and another relative scans to see if I would like to purchase this laptop. I am now down to 3 days (Sunday) to be able to return it.

I mentioned in the other post that you should be able to hit Alt F10 to put the system back to factory specs, it is worth trying.  It formats the drive which should rid it of any pest items, you will need to update or replace the antivirus software as I did did on mine.

You are interested in our opinion as to whether or not to buy the computer

OldPhil has posted a solution to put the system back to factory specs & I second that recommendation (Free)

--- After that create a system repair disc (Free)

--- Complete all Windows Updates (Free)

--- Create a system image onto an external hard drive in its pristine condition

------ An external hard drive will cost a few dollars if you don't have one but it's worth the investment as Win7 life cycle extends into Jan 2020

In my opinion buy it only if it meets your expectations
