I have a Toshiba laptop. I bought it because the keyboard felt most like a typewriter, with raised keys. For the most part, it's worked really well. Till Sunday, that is. We've been using the Toshiba Movie Factory software to make DVD's from videos. This time, it stopped in the middle of loading clips into the program. No matter what we did, it stopped every time.
We called Toshiba Tech Support. They told us to delete the program and install it again. We deleted the program, but then couldn't find the software on Toshiba's website to re-install. Hubby left on a business trip Monday morning, so I was left on my own to try to resolve this. I called Tech Support. They gave me a tinyurl for the software. I downloaded it. The program still doesn't show up on my computer. The videos we downloaded from our camera cannot be seen because there is no software to show them.
These are the kinds of things that make me want to pick up whatever it is that has the glitch and toss it out the freakin' window. My tolerance for repeated attempts to get tech support that is anything but supportive is zero. Now, I have had extremely good experiences with tech support from Norton, for example. When my computer got a virus a few weeks ago, they were fantastic. Expensive, but fantastic.
I'm wondering, do I call Microsoft and see if there is other software on my computer already that I can use? Windows Media Player has now stopped functioning as well, since I deleted the original movie program. And I can't restore the system - it won't restore.
I don't expect anyone to solve this dilemma for me. I just felt like whining and complaining a bit to people who have probably experienced similar issues. Oh, and by the way, I still don't have the new car. Let's commiserate...

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.
