If I am never seen again ...

... blame Microsoft !!

My lovely PC, Windows XP Professional, has finally died and is beyond rescusitation. Have been using a borrowed PV, Vista, for a while now so the 'techy gang' could work on my old one in the hopes it could be revived.

Alas - it could not - and I am being forced into the black hole that is 'Windows 10' !

Have spent most of today patiently harvesting pictures and documents from the borrowed Vista onto a pile of CDs - ever hopeful that they will install on Windows 10.

Tomorrow I will disconnect this one and connect up my shiney new tower - already I can see a potential problem - there is no integral card reader to upload photos. Have looked on line for one that works with W10 - but not yet managed to find one. Thanks a bunch Microsoft !!

I am dreading it - but refuse to be beaten by a misbegotten heap of micro chips - however - tomorrow you may hear me screaming - or crying - or both at once !!

My laptop is Windows 10. It is fine apart from Edge as a browser. Good luck

Is an "integral card reader" the same as a multicard reader?
