Someone gave me a laptop; said if I could get it to work I could keep it.
The problem is that someone was trying to make this Windows XP "look like a Mac."
I found a couple of Apple items in the program list and uninstalled them, but that didn't do the trick. Then I found something called FlyakiteOSX. I uninstalled that and when I rebooted I got the Windows screen instead of the Apple. However, when the desktop of the previous user came up there was nothing on it. I can go into the Guest account and get items on the desktop, but I can't do anything in that account.
Can anyone give me help with this? I thought maybe I'd just open a new user account, as ad administrator account, but I can't do that from Guest account and I can't access anything from the old user account because the desktop comes up but with nothing on it, and I can't bring up the Start option.
I would love to get this running for my grandson to play games on so any help to accomplish this would be so appreciated.
It doesn't look like I'm going to get any interest in this, but I will forge ahead and maybe some kind soul will take pity on me. I did finally get the desktop of previous user to come up. For some reason I can not make contact with any search engines. I have connection; I can type in sites and go to them, but I can not access a search engine.
