A friend sent me a link to a Microsoft download site! He may as well of sent me a copy of DOS 2.0.
Like most of the world, I'm forced to run a MS OS on my IBM Compatible Personal Computer.
Sorry, I don't want anything to do with the Microsoft company.
I've run other computers, that ran on Cobol, Fortran, Fortran II, and even Commodore Basic.
But for personal computing, MS DOS and then MS Windows has become the default OS for everyday use. I'd be running DOS today, if I could use it to get on the internet and check my email.
I've put up with the changes, from Windows 95, to 98, to ME, to XP, Vista, 7, 8.0, 8.1, and finally 10. STOP! I'm not playing anymore.
I'm here on the Win 8.1 forum because this is the end of the road for me. I'm tired of all the updates, upgrades and problems that they all entail.
There are three great programs that I've run on all my 8.1 PC's. (12)
First is the Classic Shell, to give me more control over the looks and actions of the OS.
Then I run a little script that totally disables MS Updates, and another program from GRC.com, called "NEVER 10". Love it!
OH, and I also run the little program from Steve Gibson, called the "Discombobulator". (don't ask!)
I'm finally on the downhill slope....no more punching a time clock, or taking service calls all day, or traveling up to 1500 miles a week, in every kind of foul weather imaginable, fixing more peoples screw ups, than machine failures.
I love to go out to eat, see an occasional movie, and spend time messing with my own PC's, and watch a lot of my favorite TV shows. Now watching "The X Files". lol
