What is with this computer, anyway....

So a few months back, my old computer kept locking up, had about a bajillion viruses, and it was 3 years old anyway.... so I spent a small fortune and bought a new computer -- this one -- about 3 months ago.

It was FAST! Loved it!

It didn't lock up! Loved it!

I was loving life to the max!
Such freedom!
No frustrations!
I felt liberated!

But now? It's starting to lock up again, gosh darn it! Where sometimes the only way I can free it up is by turning it off, which isn't good to do if you don't shut down the computer properly. But you can't do that when it FREEZES up!!!!

Ugh!!!!

And for some darn reason, the stinking computer won't let me upload my photos from my camera. Even though just two weeks ago I could do it without a problem. Now, today and yesterday....it doesn't let me.

And now, I will start writing an email...and the computer FREEZES up for no. dang. reason.

It's not like I have any other systems running.
It's not like I have any other windows open.
Nope.
Just a simple email to a friend.
And it will FREEZE up.

I think I just have the worst luck with computers.
It really is just that.
Because there's no reason why a BRAND NEW computer, with all the memory that I spent on it, all the upgrades, etc.... there's no reason why it should be freezing up after just 3 months.

Someone TELL ME what I'm doing WRONG!!!

(YES -- I do have an anti-virus on my computer.)

So that's why there are no NEW photos lately.
It's not that I haven't been taking them.
I have.
It's not that I don't have the time to post them.
I do.
It's not that I don't want to post them.
I really, really do.

But I just can't because of this DAMN computer and my stupid computer luck...as in NO LUCK at all.

**Okay, my rant and rave is over now.
You can go back to your regular programming.**

  1. If its a new computer -- go back to the store and make it their problem to fix it

  2. I feel your pain, we have been through several PCs that all had similar problems. I finally broke down and got a Mac because they supposedly don't get viruses or have the glitchy hang ups that PCs do. I got the MacBook and so far I LOVE it! It took a little getting used to because a lot of things are different but once you figure it out, it is TONS better than a PC.
