As I’ve already done a review of every other Windows Upgrade/Update that’s happened recently, it only makes sense that I’d do the same of Windows 8.1 Update, also known as Windows 8.1 Spring Update, Windows 8.1 Update 1, or as I like to call it, Windows 8.1.1.
As a Win8 user, I updated to Win8.1 months ago and since 8.1.1 is suppose to come out in a few weeks, I ought to tell you what I think of plain ol’ Win8.1 before then.
As the last post was pretty long, and full on, here’s a bit of a lighter look at the steps I took moving from Win7 to Win8. All information below is roughly in the order I did it, just in case you were wondering…
As I’ve had my computer for a while now (coming up to 3 years), early last year I decided it was time for a bit of a refresh. My computer was running really slowly and poorly for a while back there, so I decided that during my mid-year holidays (last year), I would reinstall Windows 7 on it, and start afresh.

Now, to a computer “expert” like you or me, that may not seem like much but to someone whose never used a computer before or is unfamiliar with how to resolve issues, this is pretty handy. And it made me wonder, why don’t more computers come with a manual? Continue Reading
So, a little while ago, I had a big networking problem with my computer. And then, the other day, my dad had the same thing happen. At first, I had no idea what the cause was, and how to fix it, and I couldn’t find anything on the net about it. So I’m going to solve that. Here’s the problem & here’s the solution. Continue Reading
