I just went back and read your post JRay. I assume you have a computer with Phoenix internet cruiser which I am not familiar with . I have read where they are supposed to be self healing which I have never needed. I will wait to see your reply and we can go from there to see if we can help you. I have been doing this type work for 20 years and you name it and I have just about seen it but I got lazy and not messed with computers very much in the last two years. I got back into golf carts which I like more plus I had a shop that needed me back lol

Thanks Tom, my brother came over today,retired IBM guy. put a flash drive in it, wiped it out re installed 10. Everything seems good. this is a dell 6 gig machine I bought in 2012. Old for sure. This is something I wanted to try. I probably should buy a new one.

Good deal, you wiped that stuff out. Check in device manager to make sure all your drivers are working. I have installed windows 10 on 10 year old computers with good success but sometimes it takes some tweaking to make everything work correct.

I really like it. Kind of like coming out of the stone age. My lap top runs so much better. I bought a windows 10 book to learn all the ins and outs. Our gov. just locked us down for 3 weeks so I will have plenty of time to read it. :hattip:

And now windows 11 is soon to be out.
I have worked on computers for over 20 years. I always liked the way Dell would keep the operating system on their site if you had a service tag number. Well that has gone away.
I have a program on my desktop at home from Dell where you start that program, enter ST and away you go. That no longer works on windows 7 and back. Microsoft has gone the way Apple has. They are going to make people upgrade and not run old operating systems.
I will continue to run windows 10 which I really like until the cows come in lol :cool:
