A crie de coeur from hubby to help him sort out a download problem on his laptop got me thinking I should do some updating. Once his was done, I started on mine. What a pain in the butt, what a frustrating couple of hours. Now it’s bedtime and I am back to square one, I have reloaded what I originally set out to update.
I use two spyware programmes, both up till now freeware. They work slightly differently, and what one doesn’t pick up, the other does. It’s belt and braces. One facility works faster. This provider has started masking updates with an insistent upgrade pop up that covers the update facility. When you click on it to get rid of it, it thanks you for ‘buying’. Till this evening you weren’t given the choice of ‘try later’. In an attempt to restore calm to my computer activity, I had to delete in order to update, oh guess…… the update was deviously the unwanted “Thank you for your purchase” version. I went in ever decreasing circles. Grrrrrrrrr. :>>
The light at end of the tunnel is, that the other provider, whose programme works well, doesn’t pester. I do give them the occasional donation; you click on a donation button to do that,(no donations button with the other programme).
