Can you uninstall IE from your comp? :>
1. It happens.
2. Stop it.
3. Yes, it does. Because Windows doesn't realize it's worthless. It updates as if it's just like any other IE, like 8. That's why we can roll it back.
1. I've never had any harddrive failure.
2. I has Avast~
3. And it comes preinstalled in every Windows comp and comes with every Windows Updater updates, yay~
1. Usually harddrive failure caused by programs not being monitored by HP Digital Monitoring.
2. A passive antivirus such as Norton, McAfee, Avast!, TrendMicro, Kaspersky...etc. doesn't take care of a virus until AFTER it's already affected your computer. An active antivirus such as AVG (which we are re-sellers of) stays ahead of the virus and quarantines it before it gets a chance to affect your computer.
3. Internet Explorer 9 is simply a beta version and isn't particularly compatible with any OS at the moment. Once installed, it's basically an open highway for infections. That's why we roll it back.
1. What KINDS of trouble?
3. Besides IE sucking after IE6, what about 9?
Well, then you'd be one of the few. The three main things we get computers for are:
1. HP's because people ALWAYS have trouble with them.
2. Norton and McAfee are passive anti-viruses.
3. People have Internet Explorer 9 (IE9)
I spent $1200 on a HP Pavilion Laptop (with a printer and digital camera) and it lasted four years. :> It never needed repair until I spilled juice over it and got it into a one month coma. Afterward, I let the battery die on me twice (on the third occasion the battery was at half but it dried up anyways).
Well, they have a marketing scheme very similar to HP. They make fantastic machines that appeal to the average customer (assuming that the average customer's knowledge of computers is limited to how to turn it on) then they are made to break down in a matter of 2 or 3 years. Especially any of the "home editions"
So, when they break down, they easily convince the customer that it is something THEY did, and they give quick-fix options for a "low cost" and then when THOSE fail, they say "Well, looks like it's time for a new machine."
And by the time it's all said and done, the average customer has spent approximately $700.00 for a computer, $60 in repairs, and another $700.00 for a new computer.
I was starting to miss you. :[
And what was that about Windows' marketing?
Honestly, 7 to 8 will be no different than Vista to 7. Taking away the "added features" in it's purest form...it's the exact same update. And see, when customers bring in older computers that are too old to run 7, we recommend that they use XP rather than Vista. Despite XP's MAJOR security flaws, it's still much smoother and much more user friendly than Vista.
