I’m going to kill my pc

… okay not really, but I came close!

I'm going to kill my pc

Oh, and much ranting ahead. You’ve been warned!

For a while now I’ve had problems with my computer. For some obscure reason, that I haven’t identified yet, my pc works fine for weeks. And then suddenly it slows down, slows down, slows down some more… and then gets completely stuck, within a matter of minutes. No amount of rebooting helps and I’m forced to reinstall Windows from scratch. And that’s what happened again last Sunday. So say goodbye to that Color challenge picture you had prepared! *grumble*

So I spend my Monday patching up my computer. Not to much of a problem, you get good at it after a while… Anyway, as soon as I had the Second Life viewer back in action, I wanted to snap some new color challenge pictures. Well, forget about it. Because as soon as I tried to save my snapshot to disk: instant crash. And not just once. Everytime I tried! So I installed the Firestorm viewer… but that crashed as well.

Monday turned into Tuesday and I was still crashing. And I was ready to throw my computer out of the nearest window. So in desperation I hit the forums and came across one that mentioned Skydrive as the possible culprit of my problems. I vaguely remembered that this program had indeed been installed, in a package along with Windows Live Mail, Messenger and some other basic things. I don’t even know what Skydrive is for, so I deleted it and guess what? Problem solved. *headdesk* Well, thanks a lot Microsoft! If you ever want to install useless programs on my pc again, please don’t bother! *grumble*

But anyway, after all that I was far too frustrated to get a color challenge picture done. So I made this, slightly more violent piccie, instead.

  1. What a pain that must have been. But so glad it was just a program you could take off and your computer is fine now! Cute pic by the way, LOVING the boots! xo

  2. Showing your evil crazy cat lady side for a change, its kinda a different look for you hehe… Ugh that all sucks though, I know how depressing it is having a PC that doesnt work, and can completely understand your wanting to kill it… I wanted to throw mine out the window for a long while! I just hope that it keeps working *crosses my fingers for you*
