Re: Ideas for a computer class
I need to learn more about how to wipe out the previous owners passwords,and how to get access to the "administrator" password so I can USE all the features of my several hand me down computers ,and fix things when something goes awry with one..
I was absent here since last week,because my computer refused to log onto MTF,while it worked fine on every other site I frequent..kept getting an error message after the home page here started loading saying "Internet Explorer cannot open this website--operatio aborted"..then I'd get a "server not found" message..--only way I got on here was to go into the "settings" and disable "scripting"..read about doing that on google,and I guess it worked..I dont like poking around in the control panel though,I'm always afraid I'll do something I cant "un-do" and lose the ability to use the computers..
The other day I made the mistake of clicking on a "windows update" that was "ready to install"..after I did that,I now get an error message saying "You may be a victim of couterfit software",evidently whoever had the computer from me did not use a "genuine" windows XP disc to load it??--now I get a pop up while browing,and after going on the web,saying I must "resolve" the issue,and my background on the start up screen is black now,instead of the usual background I had...no clue how to "fix" this dilema either..computer has been acting really strange the past week--not sure if dial up and christmas shoppers have anything to do with it,or if its AOL or what--all I know is I am sick of it always being "messed up" and never working right,or for long,if it does decide to work OK...being signed on as a "guest" means I cant access a lot of things in the programming that I'd like to change too,which stinks...
I need to take a night course on computers to learn how to post picturs,do minor repairs,and how to fix common issues with them I guess...been using one for 10 years and I'm still pretty useless on one!..
