Can't Use My Own Pictures

  1. #21


    I laughed because I had already stated that I can't use my photos. There is nothing funny. This is very upsetting. And when helped I always add to your rep. I appreciate all the help. A 71 yr old like me could never find the answers any other way. But I'm not proficient in computers and messing with some things scare me.

    Yes it can scare you if you keep telling yourself that over and over. Think back to the first time you drove a car or road a bike without training wheels. Scary wasn't it? A lot more than working on computers.

    Something is causing your photos to be blacklisted. At this point I would probably reach out to a local photographer or local mom & pop computer store to work with you, to find out what exactly is behind this issue of all your photos being interpreted as unlawful copyright.

    I'm a writer and in the middle of writing a novel. I'd hate to screw up my computer and not be able to finish it. I had my computer completely cleaned a few months ago by a reputable computer place. Cost $100 but this is the first problem I've had since. I'll try them again.

    We do not always mean to come off hard on people. But sometimes we have to treat others like an adult would treat their child when working through something. That means grabbing their attention and trying to stay on track. We can all laugh at the end about this. But right now I take stuff like this, in helping others as a serious matter.

    I have been around computers for 38 years, which would be when I was 12. I owe my father a lot for my experience in this field. I am very passionate when it comes to helping others, and feel jaded when those I try to help, treat it as if one or the other is not helping in the matter.

    Barbee the very first thing I would suggest is keeping a backup of the drive, in case something happens. Set your editor to save copy every 5 min's. I use Clonezilla for my Linux & Windows machines, with the copy saved to a NAS. You should never keep just one copy of files on the hard drive, keep a second copy on a cloud drive or USB pocket drive.

    I have it on external drive, but if my computer is broken,... I can't use it. I'm very frustrated. I'm going to put this aside until tomorrow when I have more patience. I don't mind paying a tech but I hate having to unplug everything and cart it and then have to plug things back. I will if I have to though.

    I do not know how close to Watertown you are. But my brother is retired Army in that area, and can assist you on your matter. His webpage is zolltech.com.

    The problem is trying to deduce what is really the underlying issue, then get to why you are having the other. As for breaking the OS, it can be done if your machine gets infected, dropped or kicked. But day to day use will not cause problems.

    I thought the idea that David had a good one. But F8 did not start me in safe mode.
