I edited my original post about my hp being back up and running, it isn't. First it slowed down to a crawl and I get a stop code that says unmountable boot volume. I tried booting it up with the USB hoping to repair it. No go as the repair screen never came up. Now I'm trying to reinstall Windows and the first time it came back with an error message that says cannot install Windows on specified drive partition. I did not have this problem before. I'm literally at my wits end with this. Refurbish...

This morning I turned on the laptop and it took twenty five minutes to boot. Started last night with all three browsers, Chrome, Edger and IE freezing and refusing to work. On the desktop...everything slowed to a crawl. Five minutes or better just to open explorer. Then a blue screen comes up and says unmountable boot volume. Googled it and followed the instructions. Boot from the USB choose repair system, that never came up. Hard shut down wait a few seconds and hit the power button again. I pr...

Never have I ever seen this. I went looking for disk cleaner. Imagine my surprise when I saw an empty folder.   Went online looking for a solution and was given three different ways to access them. From control panel, settings and going to all apps and windows administrative tools only to find that folder empty as well. You can't access what isn't there to access. What kind of a clusterf**k is this!?

Yesterday I uploaded a rainmeter skin that had a few mistakes and didn't work. I fixed the issue and uploaded an update. The first upload I asked an admin to remove because that one doesn't work properly. The one that does work has a 3 star rating and that one does work. Its not the rating that's an issue. Its just to identify the working one. Can someone fix this please.

So this is my question...

   We have a game going since 2009, the ban game. Very popular too, people come from all over the place to ban stuff. Another popular game was the Borg game. It got kinda tired and retired. So, since it is pumpkin season why not a game for the holiday called the Pumpkin game and instead of using Borg we use Patch. For example...I am Pumpkin so and so of Patch, make me a pie. Or some such. I dunno, it sounded good at the time.

   It all started with Chrome acting up more than usual. It took its time opening and going to other sites and sometimes it would hang. I've gotten used to it by now. Then it gets updated and things go south in a hurry. After a bit with Chrome open it suddenly decided not to work. Wouldn't scroll, couldn't use the scroll bar, click on sites in the bookmark bar and nothing happens. The only things working are the min/max close buttons, that's it.

   I close the browser thin...

Just updated ASC to version 12 and IObit's Uninstaller to version 8. They've been busy. Second screenshot shows the new GUI with the animation and the first I didn't believe until I saw it. With Uninstaller v8 you can now uninstall the program by right clicking on the desktop icon, systray icon and another I don't remember lol.

Two screenies. I get this when I click on a thread.

I thought I was putting up two screenshots but there's no upload button at the SD forums. When I click on a thread I get a blank page with two blue icons at the top left. Usually it indicates an image but nothing shows up.

Its bad enough Win 10 gets screwed up with these 'updates' all the time. Now MS in its infinite stupidity is gonna take our desktops away. Add another bill to your collection folks 'cause MS wants to go full on subscription for Windows. If I want to rent a machine I'll go to Rent-A-Center. I shouldn't have to pay rent on the OS that makes it work too. That's just insane!

I just renewed my OD sub. In my account there are two ObjectDesktop subs listed with two different product keys. I'm kinda hoping I didn't renew the wrong one. Please enlighten me.

Yup, just like the title says only not out of frustration. No rants allowed. That said,

     Ever since I canceled my sub with Photoshop, life can be very annoying at times, I've been trying to concentrate on my other projects. However since I already know what I want to do, having already completed several prototypes on a breadboard, it seems only logical (don't ever say I'm logical. Me and logic have a love/hate relationship) to actually see what it is I'm trying to do. So I ...
