Lucky for me, my computer decided as an extra special Christmas present to me to just stop loading Windows. It gets all the way to the ‘Welcome’ screen and then tells me I need to verify my account registration (well, something like that). So when I say “sure, no problem” and click on the ‘verify’ button it tells me that my Windows is already registered (no shit, considering I have had it for 4 years now). Then it tells me to click ‘OK’ to close the account registration window, which I obediently do – so it can bring me back to the ‘Welcome’ screen and start the nonsense all over again.
Currently there does not seem to be any quick fix to this issue (and no, despite the ridiculousness, it is not a virus (like it was the last time – I have no luck when it comes to computers it seems). and unfortunately, what with the holiday season in full force, my relentless habit of never starting my Christmas shopping until last minute even though I have 25 people to buy for (last minute actually means today this year – but in all fairness my OSAP only came in this morning – but that’s a whole other story I won’t bother ranting about at the moment), and my my lack of having a full time computer magician on call 24/7 who works for smiles and hugs, this issue has been ongoing since yesterday and may continue over the next few days.
I will be back to my regular posting schedule as of December 28th (next Monday) although “borrowed computer” permitting I may be able to get one in before Christmas. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding. Check back as I will definitely update you of my technical difficulty progress.
Here’s to a great holiday season to each and every one
(PS, I am patiently waiting for my chance to have unlimited access to my computer again so I can respond to Mike in my previous post…I’m loving the feedback y’all!)
