    Will continue onward and, of course, if anyone has other tips or suggestions, I am more than open to receiving them.
    Once you get everything fixed, make a system image with Macrium.
    It'll save you a lot of headaches.

    Don't know if it will, but I went into control panel and took screen shots of what programs Dad has installed. Maybe that will give someone a clue that will help?

    I couldn't figure out how to do it in just 1 screenshot though..so I've got 3. Sorry

    Just wondering if you've ever encountered problems with your stuff on that one?
    On my phone at the present, so I don't know specifically, but it's a generic MS driver for onboard Intel graphics.

    That's a lot of programs and browser addons. Mostly HP bloatware. Did this thing come with 8.1 on it?

    You mentioned Malwarebytes. Is there other AV on it?

    I believe Dad's came with 8.1 already on it because when he 1s got his and I first saw it, it was different than our HP, which only had 8 on it.
    And I tried to upgrade to 8.1 on ours but that was a disaster, for some reason, so we ended up reverting back to 8, another mess and I said heck no, not again. My acer came with win 7 and once I get that all back up and running, I am not going to 8 and with the HP, not going to 8.1

    Not unless I have a really awesome computer guru sitting by my side the entire way, LOL. And several bottles of Excedrin triple extra strength migraine and a case of a mountain dew. Then, I might consider it.

    Okay,
    One question that I've come up with is this: I'm currently working on my Acer after reinstalling 7 on it and working thru a tutorial as to how make sure everything is nice, clean and happy.
    Is there a similar list of things to work through for both my Dad's desktop and my HP laptop?
    Thanks so much.

    I take it your dad's problem was resolved? If so, how?

    8/8.1 are pretty much maintenance free, although I run CCleaner once a week. It's a more controllable disk cleaner. It'll run Windows Update, Defender, Defrag, and CheckDisk on it's own. I check on it after Patch Tuesday to make sure it is. It hasn't skipped a beat.

    So far as personalization goes, I'd go through "Change PC Settings" in the Charms Bar with him for starters. There's some forum threads here on some.
