No I didn't break it but I have been wondering why I thought I downloaded free Malwarebytes and now its telling me my 'free trial' expires in 2 days.
I know I need to reformat, sis should not have done an upgrade rather than reformat. I found that HP Quick Start is messed up because it has some compatibility issues with Windows 7 and I think there is just too much junk on here to work well with dial up. I found a performance assessment on computer and it suggested I have too many things running at start up. Icehouse knows that anyhow.
I don't know what the computer guys did but it was hot when I picked it up and it seems to be running cooler and the fan works right.
I also need a fairly pricey air purifier with a Hepa filter..don't get old.
