Yesterday I was at my Mom's place nearly the whole day. I helped her to clean her computer both inside and outside. Her computer is a bit old and doesn't have that much capacity so it has made "tricks" lately with her.
I also moved the computer tower up on her writing desk. She have had it standing under the desk on the floor, and both the tower and all the cables gathered a lot of dust down there.
It was the antivirus program that made difficulties. It was old and out of order, so we looked up an other "fresh virus killer program" and installed that. We choosed a free program called AVAST, hope that will be ok. You could get it in Swedish, so that was a plus I think.
The day before yesterday she also had to buy a new ADSL modem, because the old had been stroked by the lightning. Well, after a whole day of cleaning and fixing I had to see if everything was running properly. Everything was alright except for the printer! It didn't matter what I did, it just didn't wanted to make any print-outs. I tried all ways I could think of. Checked all settings, change USB socket, but nothing helped =(
The machine just chewed on and there came out blank papers!!! I had to give up. Perhaps the printer was tired of me =)))))))))
I've to take a hold on it some other day and hope that it will be solved.
I have to metion that my Mom is 81 years old and I think it's very fun and nice that she is using a computer at all at that age. Don't you think that too?
HAVE A NICE DAY!
