Pulling My Hair Out Working On the Computer All Day

Computer day

I’ve been having some computer problems causing my computer to run real slow sometimes.

Well, last night I started a computer reset that was supposed to keep all my stuff, but.


This morning when I had a look a lot of stuff was gone and it installed a newer version of windows ten. The worse part is it installed a new mail program and dumped my old one with all the stuff I had in it.

It dumped some other programs I use too.

Trying to fix things

So today I spent trying to sort it all out and fix what I could, which wasn’t so easy.

My email program was the most important and I did finally find the old Microsoft program on the web after much work trying to find the old stuff, such as old emails and contacts.

In the end I lost all of my contacts and emails. So nothing like starting out new.

The new email program they thought I should use, called Microsoft mail I didn’t like at all but at least it worked but it didn’t have any of my old email stuff in it.

I also had to find and load my Windows live writer which I did. That’s when I also found a download for my old email program which I also installed as I liked that one much better than their new one.

Trying to figure out all the passwords for things was a real bitch as they dumped all the stored stuff on passwords too.

So it’s after dark now and I’m still working on getting things right.

So I can’t say it was a good day. :O)

    On your PC go into your Systems and back date your Computer it will erase back to the date did you select it’ll put The Originals OS to its original state before the new system made the change I would only go back about 10 or 15 days that’ll restore everything that you had to original programs … Computer reset is designed to wipe your computer clean
    You probably don’t like a Mac computer but the issue that you’re having is one of the reasons why I don’t like PC you’re always fighting with it

    I know your pain. I recently got a new computer and trying to get all my stuff back was very frustrating. I don’t care for the new mail program either.
