Windows 8 is out to get me. Or maybe it's my computer. No. It's definitely Windows 8. After a month I can say once and for all that I hate Windows 8.
I've gotten used to it not remembering any passwords, EVER, though I don't like that at all, especially when commenting on other blogs and having to type my email and blog url in over and over. Makes me wish I had an easier blog name and email. Or my old computer. I wish that a lot actually.
But this latest thing it is doing is just crazy. And aggravating. In the past, it has given me the blue window of death, with a message next to my name saying it was locked and would restart in two days. I was able to work around that by shutting the computer down and then turning it back on again. And one time it gave me the blue page of death with a message that it was reconfiguring, and it did that for an hour before I closed the computer and took it to Best Buy. But when I got there and opened the computer, it opened to the tiles screen. So I took it back and griped at it the whole way home.
But this latest thing, this has no work around that I can find. Windows 8 took over my computer, and if I had had my sound on, I'm sure I would have heard the evil laughter of the Wicked Witch of the West.
This happened right after I tried to do a Norton scan, the last Norton scan before my 30 free days were over. Norton wouldn't scan, it wanted me to download updates, and since I wouldn't be using it after that day, I didn't see the need in downloading anything. So I pressed cancel. It did, but that's when this screen came up, the purple screen of death I suppose.
But when I opened the computer this morning to make sure the purple screen was still there, the computer battery was finally dead. I plugged it in, and the tiles screen came up as usual, and everything seems to be back to normal.
But I'm sure the evil Windows 8 dictator is still lurking within, waiting for me to be in the middle of something important before he deploys the final lockdown.
