    Windows 8.1 Pro is back up and running, lucky I keep my OS and Data on separate partitions. Still annoyed though. :mad:

    How is your wireless connection, now that you are back up and running? Slow, medium and fast?

    Wireless connection is good. Going to apply a few updates as I speak.
    • Definitions for Windows Defender (33MB)
    • Cumulative Security Updates for ActiveX Killbits
    • Cumulative Security Updates for Internet Explorer 11
    • Security Updates for Adobe Flash Player
    • Malicious Software Removal Tool (April 2014)

    Accidentally installed the wrong Windows 8.1, it turned out to be 32-bit, so 2.3GB usable of 3GB. Idling at 700MB usage.

    Should I re-install to an 64-bit OS?

    Darn,:mad: I hate when that happens...:rolleyes:

    Re-installing the OS to 64-bit sounds like a logical move.

    I was thinking that, but was also considering of using this laptop for storing current data files, instead of browsing the internet. Basically, it's nearing retirement. :( Some of the characters on the keyboard don't work either.

    And or a back up, should you ever need. I would reinstall 64 bit, take full advantage of the hardware. You always have an option of external Keyboard as well if need be... Might as well suck the life out of that thing, you know you paid enough for it.

    I agree with illumination's idea (..he thinks quicker than I can type, lol!:D). One of our lap tops, before it became unable to regain consciousness,:( was a Dell Inspiron *looks over shoulder to the corner by the door*:mad: that had XP; and was considerably faster than our HP desktop. All it's keys didn't work either, so I hooked up a wireless keyboard, plugged it into our HP's monitor, & it morphed into :eek:a "Lap top/Desk top computer. As Dr. Frankestein once said: "It's Alive..!!!":D If you can get it running again,o_O it's nice to know you have it even if you don't need it. It's kind of like our eldest car:cool: we're giving to our eldest son!:p

    Was going to activate the 6 month free of Bitdefender Internet Security, but unfortunately the web installer was buggy. No joke. It kept disconnecting and reconnecting the Wi-Fi, I only knew what was going since Windows has sound notifications. Cancelled the installation, deleted any folder created by Bitdefender.

    Other changes:
    - Uninstalled Internet Explorer (Windows Features)
    - Installed Opera 20
