For the ones that are planning on buying a new computer do your homework and
cover all bases. Read this forum as despite some of the rhetoric there is
good advise on here. Also don't just do a software upgrade over an existing

bit the bullet and buy a new one or upgrade your hardware so that you can run
The important thing to remember is that ALL new O/S's have problems even
going back to the DOS 5 days. Except for Millenium ( lolol what a joke ) all

I said with homework and research that should cut the bad luck right down.
